The 2020 World Championship is underway, as eight teams remain in the race for the title and are getting ready to play in quarterfinals.
The knockout stage at Worlds starts on October 15 with the clash between two LCK squads, DAMWON Gaming and DRX. The quarterfinals will then continue through October 18, when the top four will be decided.
The World Championship is the biggest event in competitive League of Legends and the most-watched event in the esports industry. So far, the World Championship is reporting record-breaking viewership numbers and it’s due in part to the prevalent co-streaming.
Christian “IWillDominate” Rivera and Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi are among the group of co-streamers for Worlds. If just watching the official stream is not entertaining enough, perhaps watching some of the most popular streamers on Twitch might do the trick.
IWillDominate and Sneaky provide commentary from the perspective of former pro players, a different approach to broadcasting the game. IWillDominate and Sneaky are both streamers for Cloud9. The spring champion looked like the strongest team in the LCS until the summer season came around. In the summer, Cloud9 crashed and burned, leaving North America without its most promising team at Worlds. Now C9 is represented at Worlds only by its content creators.
Former 100 Thieves jungler William “Meteos” Hartman is also part of the co-streaming experience for Worlds 2020 working in tandem with Sneaky.
Watching through the official channels has its benefits. There are several Watching Worlds missions that can still be completed by watching the remaining of the tournament. Completing these missions grant 500 Blue Essence, and there’s a total of three such missions.
North American fans will receive drops every time something exciting like a baron steal or a pentakill happens in-game. These drops include Blue Essence, skin shards, and more.
