The 2020 League of Legends World Championship is now in its final stage, and the road to the finals is hotter than ever. The Quarter-Finals started yesterday with a DAMWON Gaming vs DRX where all expectations were accomplished, but today’s match, where Suning and JD Gaming had their fight for a spot in the Semi-Finals, has been a surprise for many fans.
Suning, the third Chinese seed, qualified to the Knockout stage after ending first in Group A, where they beat G2 Esports, Team Liquid, and Machi Esports, with pretty consistent performances.
Later, with the Quarter-Finals draw, they were set to face JD Gaming, the second seed representative of the LPL, and one of the favorites to win the tournament.
The series took place today, and in the first match, it was JD Gaming who took the lead in the score, winning Suning in a very close game that made everyone clear that they were here to fight, and wouldn’t make things easy for their enemies…
But they did more than that. In the second game, they destroyed JD Gaming and entered the third game with even more confidence. This confidence, together with an astonishing performance from Suning AD Carry Tang “huanfeng” Huan-Feng, helped the Chinese lions to take the lead in the general score.

In the last game, where anything could have happened again, Suning proved everyone wrong and, again, won the game. With this 3-1 score, they qualify for the Semi-Finals and eliminate JD Gaming.
They will have their next Bo5 series against the winner of tomorrow’s match, between Top Esports and Fnatic.
Do we have a new favorite for wining Worlds?
