BLAST to hold additional open qualifiers for upcoming RMRs

The organizers of Paris Major 2023 have announced via Twitter the holding of additional online qualifiers for the upcoming RMR tournaments for Europe and Americas.

Initially, one open qualifier was set to take place in Europe, as well as in North and South America, with the best teams from the two latter regions advancing to the general Americas RMR. This decision was revised due to criticism from a part of the professional community, which expressed dissatisfaction with the small number of attempts to make the closed qualifiers.

The additional qualifying competition for Europe will take place on February 14-15, followed by the North American and South American qualifiers, scheduled for February 15-16. The full information regarding the format and dates of the qualifying cycle for the RMR tournaments can be found in the article via this link.

The winners of the open qualifiers will receive half of the spots in the closed qualifiers for the RMRs. The rest of the places will go to the leaders of Valve's Regional Standings.
