Teams have arrived in Shanghai for the 2020 League of Legends World Championship, which is taking place in a quarantine bubble to ensure safety during the global COVID-19 pandemic, and all of the professional players are playing solo queue on a 'Super Server' in China, which only includes players who are at least Diamond 1 on a standard League of Legends regional server.
The following is a list of every player representing either the League of Legends European Championship or the League of Legends Championship Series at Worlds 2020 who has reached Challenger tier on China's Super Server.
|Player||Team||Position||Rank | LP|
|Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau||Fnatic||TOP||93 | 934|
|Rasmus "Caps" Winther||G2 Esports||MID||114 | 868|
|Felix "MagiFelix" Boström||Fnatic||SUB [mid]||141 | 796|
|Erik "Treatz" Wessén||TSM||SUB [sup]||145 | 784|
|Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-In||Team Liquid||SUP||185 | 676|
|Steven "Hans sama" Liv||Rogue||ADC||193 | 659|
|Martin "Rekkles" Larsson||Fnatic||ADC||211 | 624|
|Edward "Tactical" Ra||Team Liquid||ADC||226 | 599|
|Kacper "Inspired" Słoma||Rogue||JG||255 | 562|
|Oskar "Selfmade" Boderek||Fnatic||JG||265 | 545|
|Lucas "Santorin" Larsen||FlyQuest||JG||283 | 523|
Fnatic is the most represented team in Challenger currently, with Bwipo leading all pros and Selfmade, Rekkles, and substitute mid laner MagiFelix in his wake.
Every LCS and LEC team has at least one player in challenger except for LEC #4 seed MAD Lions, but the LEC still has three more representatives in Challenger than the LCS. All players are members of their respective starting rosters sans MagiFelix and TSM's 6th man support Treatz. The most represented roles are bot and jungle, with three players each, and the least represented role is top, with only Bwipo carrying the mantle for the northern sector of Summoner's Rift.
The play-in of the 2020 World Championship begins on September 25, so there is still plenty of time for the solo queue rankings to shift before the start of the event. Player accounts may decay once their respective teams start competing at Worlds, but until then, expect an influx of pros into the Super Server's Challenger tier.
