League of Legends

The League of Legends World Championship is a true celebration of Riot Games production. This is a period when the eyes of all, even the most casual LoL players are turned to the esports games. This year’s edition will start at the end of next week, and we’ve just got to know the full competition schedule! Worlds this year will take place In China.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, two Vietnamese formations had to withdraw from Worlds 2020, ten teams will play in the play-in, and four of them will reach the main stage of the tournament. Therefore, each group will have five formations — the top-ranked team of a given set will be automatically promoted to the group stage, while the teams from the second to the fourth place will duel in two additional brackets, the winners of which will also receive the promotion they want.

The World Cup will start on September 25, 2020, and the opening match will be the clash between the European representative and the team from Brazil: MAD Lions will face INTZ. On the same day, we will also get a match between LGD Gaming and PSG Talon. The real icing on the cake on the opening day of the competition will be Team Liquid’s duel with the aforementioned MAD, which will start at 2:00 PM.

So if you found yourself wondering when will G2 play, or who is in Fnatic group in Worlds, or who is TSM or Team Liquid playing next — here’s your answer.

All times in CEST.

G2 Esports, whose colors are defended by Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski, will play their first match at the League of Legends World Championship on October 4, and a representative of the Chinese scene, Suning, will stand in the way of the Samurai.
