Valve scraps invites for ESL One Rio Major; teams to be determined via regional rankings

Valve has announced that all 24 teams competing at the ESL One Rio Major will be determined through Regional Major Rankings (RMR).

The announcement comes in the aftermath of the postponement of the Rio Major because of the coronavirus outbreak. The event will be held in November and will be the only Major of 2020, with an increased prize pool of $2 million (up from the original $1 million) on the line.

By the time the Rio Major begins, it will have been 14 months since the previous Major, hosted by StarLadder in Berlin. To make sure that the Brazilian event will still feature the best teams in the world, Valve will be replacing the direct invitations with a ranking system that has been in the works since January.

Teams will earn points towards the RMR through various competitions that will be held in the months leading up to the Major. There will be two RMR Series, one in the Spring and one in the Fall, both with $255,000 prize money (sponsored by Valve), which will be distributed between six different regions based on the number of slots allocated at the Major.

There will be eight Legend, eight Challenger and eight Contender invitations available for the Major, which are based on each region's performance in Berlin. The slot allocation for the Rio Major will be the following:

Europe: 3 Legends, 5 Challengers, 2 Contenders
North America: 3 Legends, 2 Challengers, 1 Contender
CIS: 2 Legends, 1 Challenger, 2 Contenders
South America: 1 Contender
Asia: 1 Contender
Oceania: 1 Contender

The first RMR Series will be hosted by ESL later this month and will be called ESL One: Road to Rio, featuring 56 of the world's best teams in six different regions. The teams that had qualified for the Major and for the Minors will be invited to participate in their respective region. In future RMR tournaments, a regional ranking will be used to determine invites.

Tournament organisers who are interested in being included in the RMR event list are encouraged to reach out to Valve. For a competition to be considered, it will need to invite the top RMR teams in the region and hold qualifiers to determine the remaining spots. Events can have any format, prize pool or duration, and can be held online, on LAN or a combination of the two.

A detailed breakdown of the RMR points system will be announced at a later time as Valve is still finalising the event list for the year. However, it was announced that the "value of events closer to the Major will be greater than in earlier events" as Valve wants to reward teams who hit top form in the run-up to Rio.

TLDR: Teams that were previously qualified for the rio major will have to play 2 events with other teams to prove that they're good enough to play at the major. It basically means nothing for the current top10 teams, but for shitter teams like North, MIBR and ENCE they might lose their spot

Well I can blame Valve as well since the invites were pretty much set in place already, sure it might end up in better matches being played at the major but as far as I can tell the new qualifiers will be online so that makes it unpredictable again and it will probably result in some upsets and some teams that fought their hardest and earned their spot in the new challenger stage being screwed over and not making it which would just suck. The reason why I'm assuming at least a part of the new qualifiers will be online is because Nors3 stated that the first tournament that results in qualifying will be in May and the quarantaine is still scheduled to be active around then I think.
2020-04-02 23:08
Teams that qualified to the Minor will be automatically invited to the first RMR.
2020-04-03 11:06

yeah but they will still have to qualify for the major after that. And other teams that didn't make it will again get a chance to also qualify again which in turn could lead tothem not making it and some team that they might've beaten before and won the spot from fair and square now beating them. It just seems a tad unfair to me.

how do u want it to be done? LAN events are not available now and Online event can be held for one exact region (teams from different regions can't play against each other so we can't decide which region deserves more or less slots atm)

The first RMR Series will be hosted by ESL later this month and will be called ESL One: Road to Rio, featuring 56 of the world's best teams in six different regions. The teams that had qualified for the Major and for the Minors will be invited to participate in their respective region. In future RMR tournaments, a regional ranking will be used to determine invites.

CIS has Navi as a tier 1 and a some tier 2/3 teams, explain me why they deserve 2 legends spots? They deserve 1 Legend (Navi), 1 Challenger (VP) and 1 contender (Spirit or some other team), 5 spots is ridiculous for the least competitive minor.

Best way to go is to get something close to the DPC system for Dota. That system is close to it. But the way those invitations are done are kinda bad. Right now, Fnatic, ranked #5, have to go with Challenger stage, while VP #20 are in legends.

They aren’t « invited » anywhere, it’s just the number of spots allocated to each region. 100T are considered NA then.

Yeah I wasn’t sure when I first saw the post, since they have always gone though the aus qualification for the major and the oce region only got a Contender invite, I can see now they are in the NA classification
