cs_summit 8 will act as RMR event in North America
The eighth cs_summit tournament will be held May 14-30 in the North American region and act as a qualifier for the next major, scheduled for late October this year. Tournament operator Beyond the Summit have published the official announcement on its Twitter account.
More information about the first RMR event for North America will be revealed later. At this time, we only know the dates for the two open qualifiers, May 1-2 and May 8-9.
It is expected that some of the cs_summit 8 participants will receive direct invites depending on the current RMR-rating, which was reset before the start of the new season, but the leaders received starting points: Evil Geniuses, EXTREMUM (ex-100 Thieves) and FURIA - 600 points, and Liquid - 300 points.
Recall that earlier the organizer of the first ranking tournament for the North American region was unveiled by insiders. According to published information, in Europe, qualifiers for the major will be organized by Flashpoint, in CIS by Epic Esports Events, and Asian qualifiers will be taken care of by PGL.
Finalists of Regional Major Rankings 2021 will take part in PGL Major Stockholm 2021, which will be held from October 23 to November 7. This will be the first time in the history of the major prize pool of $2,000,000.
