Valve said that each region will have at least 2 RMR events with at least one of them being held on LAN before the major. But seeing as right now there is no space in the calendar before the major longer than 4 days, when will the last RMRs be held and where?

Major wont happen this year so there will be plenty of space in the calendar

you guys in EU should be happy, I see people in the news not even wearing masks, so virus is declining I guess. that's why it won't happen in Rio, there's too much cases of covid in here (government does nothing fuck)

they said it was an option but as the swedish government has decided like today that sports events at a large scale will be possible from the 23 of august and onwards it will probably happen as planned in Stockholm
2021-07-23 22:05
Didn't Swedish government just put out a statement or something? I saw something on NIP's twitter.

Good question, they might make one of the upcoming ESL events to a rmr I guess
2021-07-23 15:32

I don‘t think they can do that, because the ESL events have a lot of partner teams.

ESL pretty much only does EU events tho, so thats just 1 part of the problem The others is, who tf is going to find time/space to do the CIS and NA one, are they all going to even be able to get them to LAN across all regions, how long will it take for players to move from their last event to the Major given quarantine etc, wtf happens if there is someone infected and will crowds even be allowed given that governments flip-flop on corona every 2 weeks (this one really seals it, crowdless Major is not going to be good)
2021-07-23 15:41
prolly not cus qualifications are way different for the upcoming esl tournaments

So only IEM Fall could be turned into an RMR but the major literally starts 13 days after, not much time in-between.

Nah, IEM Fall is gonna be EZ for Team Renewal and it would be kinda weird if a Mongolian team wins a European RMR event.
2021-07-23 15:39
I guess, yeah, but i don't see that happening
2021-07-23 16:13
major most likely postponed

2021-07-23 16:08
you are 100% right. I can't see how they are planning on doing another LAN RMR event in the next 2-3months with IEM fall (ESL want this on LAN), EPL which lasts a month and Blast's fall groups in september. How are they going to do a CIS LAN RMR and an EU LAN RMR? I don't see how unless they force ESL or Blast to move stuff around or something.

Valve has stated they want at least one LAN rmr event before the major, which will hold more weight then the other online RMRs.
2021-07-24 13:21
I really doubt there will be second rmr for Europe

no space in the calendar and non of the big tournaments is ready to make an RMR with it. Also, LAN RMR will never happen.

There won't be a major without at least 2 RMRs before it tho, maybe it will just be IEM Fall in the end, Blast & EPL won't move i assume. Another option would be to schedule it during EPL/Blast Groups with the disadvantage some teams would've maybe 2 BO3s a day

Or Valve looks at RMR points and look at other tournament results and valued a "Ranking system" with it. Something they did always in the past of Dota.

yeah but in the end they published that schedule with - at least - 2 RMR events per region, so i doubt they won't stick to it but let's wait and see, i could live with no more rmr events as a mouz fan lol

As SpunJ said on HLTV Confirmed. it is a tournament break, not a player break. he even flamed the writer of the Rush article for it.

well, but most of the players are chilling on vacation rn, you can't just suddenly force them to play MAJOR QUALIFICATION and there has to be 3rd RMR for CIS too, weplay posted an obvious hint in their twitter and rumours say they've got it to make a LAN event

I mean Valve can say 2 RMR are enough. And about "forcing"... all knew there is a possibility it can happen. Sure it sucks but they get a ton of money and a lot is on the line.

but 3rd for CIS is almost confirmed, if they have a deal with weplay, it must happen, and dates should have already been discussed, so I don't really understand how will all these be at the same time

We can all say Valve sucks. They should give Blast/DH/ESL the responsibility. They can do it better. I think DH would be the best. because it makes a few tier 1 Tournaments most of the time tier 2. But they have also the infrastructure and the Knowledge and direct support from the ESL. Valve shows atm that they have actually zero control. The EpicLeague disaster was only one big and disgraceful proof.

the problem is that rn they just can't give it to Blast/DH/ESL because of schedule and impossible to convert events. They could've made IEM Fall an RMR event, but it already has invited teams from another regions. I don't know what they can do now. Knowing valve, they can just put their RMR whenever they want and destroy the whole schedule tho
