Today’s cartoon is about the upcoming 2020 League of Legends World Championship and its groups. With every group stage draw, fans are interested in how “free” the group would be for the teams they’re cheering for. Then, the question that follows is which group is the group of death?
Many consider Top Esports, JD Gaming, and DAMWON Gaming as the favorites of the tournament. As JDG and DAMWON share a group, it's natural to believe that Group B is the group of death. On the other hand, Group C is perhaps the bloodiest, where the power of the three teams is seemingly the most similar. Assuming that LGD Gaming would get through the play-ins, any team could get through or be eliminated.
Meanwhile, most fans considered G2 Esports as the “winner” of the group draw. Group A seemed least likely to have upsets and G2 Esports would advance to the next round without much trouble.
All speculations on “free” groups or “death” groups show the interest of fans and how much they’re excited to watch the biggest event of the year. As Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere said, anything can happen at Worlds. The most unexpected teams could make it far, or everything could just go as predicted.
The play-ins will be starting soon. As most of the players are in quarantine, I hope everyone stays safe and well for another fun and interesting World Championship.
