Following all the upcoming tournaments, the threat of coronavirus spread caused all the tournaments of the first half of 2020 , including the main event - ESL One Rio Major, to shift the dates or move online. This news has not left indifferent most organizations, players, coaches and journalists.

Representatives of the stage agreed that the decision of Valve and ESL is correct, but at the same time asked questions about the system of selection and allocation of quotas. The organizers reported that the teams that won spots in the New Legends Stage and New Challengers Stage are obliged to keep the majority of players in the line-up for an automatic invitation to the tournament. According to the community, 14 months between the two majors will not allow some organizations to approach the tournament in optimal shape.
