[Worlds 2020] The bracket is set for the Worlds 2020 knockout stage
  10-12-2020, 04:08 AM
The Worlds group stage is over, with DRX and Top Esports completing the final match. The eight teams have all now qualified, and with the knockout draw, they've finally found their place in the bracket that will map out their knockout stage, determining their path to the title. 
At the top of Group A sat the LPL third seed, Suning, followed by the LEC first seed, G2 Esports. Group B was led by the LCK first seed, DAMWON Gaming, followed by the LPL second seed, JD Gaming. Group C ended with the LCK third seed, Gen.G, on top, followed by the LEC second seed, Fnatic. And finally, Group D finished with the LPL first seed, TES taking first, with the LCK second seed, DRX, claiming the second slot. 
The knockout phase pairs the four first-place finishers against the four second-place finishers. Teams can not play against their own group's counterpart, and they can not even be on the same side of the bracket either. That means DWG can not match against JDG, for example, and they can not possibly meet again until the Finals if both teams make it all the way. However, teams can play against other teams from their own region.

The top side of the bracket is Top Esports versus Fnatic and Suning versus JD Gaming. The bottom side of the bracket is Gen.G versus G2 Esports and DAMWON Gaming versus DRX. This means all three LPL seeds are in the upper bracket, all three LCK are in the lower bracket, and the two LEC seeds are split up. There can not be a LPL vs LPL final, nor an LCK vs LCK final, but there can be an LEC vs LEC final if both FNC and G2 can work their way to that title match. 
Games start next week, taking place Thursday, Oct. 15 through Sunday, Oct. 18, at 3 a.m. PT.
