The North American region has finally recorded a win in the ongoing 2020 League of Legends World Championship group.

The North American emerge winner in six tries, as FlyQuest toppled Unicorns of Love in a back-and-forth 36-minute battle. You might say the 36-minute fight was an easy task for FlyQuest, but it’s not what you think.
At a certain point in the match, UOL looked like the superior team with superior team composition. FlyQuest was able to carry the day coming from behind to hold the Unicorns off from obtaining an infernal soul severally.
The win recorded by FlyQuest was down to their focused objective control and strong teamfighting.
Mid laner PowerOfEvil and his 9/3/3 scoreline on Syndra was the highlight of the game. Syndra was a total juxtaposition to top laner Solo, who scored 2/9/6 on Renekton
After three games days, the North America region has a record of 1-5 across its three representatives.
FlyQuest, Team Liquid, and TSM still have the opportunity to catch up, as many NA fans are delighted to see the region finally getting back to winning ways.
