no, its because Brazil is shit
ESL One: Rio was originally scheduled for May 11-24 in Rio de Janeiro before being postponed to November because of the coronavirus pandemic. It took the slot in the tournament calendar that was held by the second Counter-Strike Major of the year, with the prize pool bumped to a record $2 million.
"While Valve is currently not able to say when and how Majors will return, as soon as they do we'll work to bring the Major to Rio," ESL said in a statement. "New dates will be announced once a return for an in-arena Major is safe for everyone involved.
Brazilians don't get robbed, we are the ones who rob.
2022 Maybe, Covid in Brazil is a Chaossss, 8.2M of Cases and 200K Deaths
brasil robbed because we dont have a president
There will be a Major in Brazil in 2022 anyway... corona made it impossible to happen in Brazil in 2021
There's no point on going to Brazil for a major while COVID is still a concern. And by october-november 2021 it's probably still gonna be a concern to some degree. Probably a lesser degree... Thing is that hosting a major in places like Brazil or US would be more of a pain in the ass for the organizers if one thing goes wrong.
It's just easier and safer to do it in Stockholm. Brazil can wait.
