Vitality strengthen top spot in Europe RMR; Evil Geniuses join the race in NA after cs_summit 6 win

With the summer Regional Major Ranking event, cs_summit 6, concluded in North America and Europe, we take a look at the standings and examine which teams have the best chances to make the Major.

Two grand final losses in a row, in BLAST Premier Spring Series Finals and cs_summit 6 Europe, were certainly not how Vitality wanted to end the first half of the year, but despite the lack of tournament wins, the Frenchmen's consistency has earned them a high world ranking and a plethora of RMR points.

Vitality's 855 point gap puts them in a comfortable position before the last RMR event

Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire's men earned a solid number of points at every Major Ranking stop, the StarLadder Berlin Major (5-8th, 360 points), ESL One: Road to Rio - Europe (5th, 1300 points), and cs_summit 6 (2nd, 1875 points), climbing to the top of the European Regional Major Rankings and creating a big gap between them and the second-placed team - 855 points. In no other region does a team have such a big lead at the top, with Vitality's spot at the Major, at least as Challenger or Contender, practically a lock-in.

G2 follow in second, and interestingly, Astralis complete the top three, despite skipping the cs_summit event altogether, a decision Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz spoke about in the latest episode of HLTV Confirmed. BIG's win over Vitality propels them from unranked to #8, claiming 2000 points, with GODSENT's fourth-place a positive surprise for a team ranked #28 in the world.

Teams that find themselves in a tough spot are mousesports (962.5 points) and Complexity (350 points). Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen's squad still have a shot to grab onto a Major spot at the last RMR event in Autumn, but Complexity will be hoping for a miracle, needing to make up 1500+ points on the likes of fnatic, OG, and Heroic to earn a slot.

Current Europe Regional Major Rankings:

1. France Vitality - 3535 points (Legends spot)
2. France G2 - 2680 points (Legends spot)
3. Denmark Astralis - 2400 points (Legends spot)
4. Europe GODSENT - 2300 points (Challenger spot)
5. Finland ENCE - 2155 points (Challenger spot)
6. Sweden NiP - 2085 points (Challenger spot)
7. Europe FaZe - 2014 points (Challenger spot)
8. Germany BIG - 2000 points (Challenger spot)
9. Denmark North - 1900 points (Challenger spot)
10. Sweden fnatic - 1875 points (Contender spot)
11. Europe OG - 1750 points (Contender spot)
12. Denmark Heroic - 1625 points
13. France Heretics - 1412.5 points
14. Spain Movistar Riders - 1225 points
15. Europe mousesports - 962.5 points
16. Denmark x6tence - 872.5 points
17. Europe Complexity - 350 points
18. Bulgaria FATE - 312.5 points
19. Europe c0ntact - 264 points
20. Sweden Dignitas - 150 points

Evil Geniuses' showed good form to win cs_summit 6 North America, which proppeled them into the top three of the North American rankings, sitting between Liquid and Gen.G, with 100 Thieves trailing slightly behind. All four of the aforementioned teams are in a 300 point window, meaning that the final RMR event will be all-important in deciding which teams will get the top spots in the region.

Trailing behind them are Cloud9 accompanied by Brazilian powerhouses FURIA and MIBR. As of now, no Brazilian team is ranked high enough to earn a spot at the ESL One Rio Major, but they will have one more chance to climb up at the Autumn event which will take place after the player break.

Current North America Regional Major Rankings:

1. United States Liquid - 3650 points (Legends spot)
2. United States Evil Geniuses - 3550 points (Legends spot)
3. United States Gen.G - 3475 points (Legends spot)
4. Australia 100 Thieves - 3325 points (Challenger spot)
5. United States Cloud9 - 2900 points (Contender spot)
6. Brazil FURIA - 2875 points
7. Brazil MIBR - 2091.5 points
8. United States Triumph - 1750 points
9. North America Envy - 1200 points
10. United States Chaos - 1187.5 points
11. Brazil TeamOne - 875 points
12. United States Bad News Bears - 750 points
13. Brazil Yeah - 600 points

The final RMR events are yet unannounced, but it is known that they will give out the highest number of points yet, allowing for big changes in the final standings.

The points distribution for the Autumn RMR events will be as follows, with the number of spots giving points depending on the region.

1. 2500 RMR Points
2. 2344 RMR Points
3. 2188 RMR Points
4. 2031 RMR Points
5. 1875 RMR Points
6. 1719 RMR Points
7. 1563 RMR Points
8. 1406 RMR Points
9. 1250 RMR Points
10. 1094 RMR Points
11. 938 RMR Points
12. 781 RMR Points
13. 625 RMR Points
14. 469 RMR Points
15. 313 RMR Points
16. 156 RMR Points

no brazilian teams, no brazilian crowd
2020-07-06 13:54
major wont be in Rio
2020-07-06 13:54
if they postpone (and move) the major again then we will have at least one road to major tournament
2020-07-06 13:57
2020-07-06 14:02
Yes. The whole point of these tournaments is to have the best teams at the moment, that's why every tournament grants more point than the precedent one.
2020-07-06 14:04
they wont add another RTR because the whole pts calculation is based of three tournaments. you have no argument and you knows fuck all. they wont do the major in rio, they will do the major somewhere else in EU without crowd.
2020-07-06 14:07
I said "if they postpone it", the location is irrelevant if teams from any region other than EU couldn't fly in "you have no argument" there are no arguments, it's pure speculation by both
2020-07-06 14:20
the whole calculation is based on the weight and percentage. so it's absolutely possible to have an infinite amount of rmr tournaments before the major.
2020-07-07 06:50
If Valve postpone the major 3 months or more, is very likely it will have more RMR events. Doesn’t make sense that the participating teams have been chosen too much time before the Event.
2020-07-06 22:42
They'll steal from other teams with the crowd

2020-07-06 13:55
no cancel but 100% delayed and 80% moved to another country
2020-07-06 13:57
Not sure about moving it to another country, it depends on how much they already prepared it in Brazil
2020-07-06 14:41
doesnt matte how much they have prepared. brazil is travel banned by every serious country
2020-07-06 15:14
If they delay it to next year, it won't even matter.
2020-07-06 19:41
But for what, situation in Brazil is bad as fuck and even if countries will open up I doubt we will see full arenas of people. It's better to switch to some European countries
2020-07-06 22:34
Mouz wat doink?
2020-07-06 13:56
Funny if no brazilian teams in rio

2020-07-06 13:57
why it says that cloud 9 have same amount of points like furia?
2020-07-06 13:58
+1 smth wrong
2020-07-06 18:06
Because Furia sucked ass against C9 in a battle for 5th place in summit_6 which lead for C9 to actually get the contender spot instead of Furia (even if they have the same points) but that might change next RMR event.
2020-07-06 19:27

Man fnatic and mouz need to qualify for the major. They need to turn up at the next event or things could go south.

What is the difference between contender and challenger in this instance. Don't they all go to the same swiss bracket?
2020-07-06 14:06
Im asking the same question actually, maybe contender is like minor play-in in normal major system? So all contender teams from every regions battling for 2 or 3 spots in major
2020-07-06 14:38
no because there are 24 spot in total
2020-07-06 14:41
Im honestly confused by the "contender slot" ngl
2020-07-06 14:45
Maybe seeding related? Idk either
2020-07-06 14:50
probably idk
2020-07-06 15:05
challengers used to be returning challengers contenders used to be new challengers it's two different stages of major
2020-07-07 06:54
I guess contender is old qualifier stage...
2020-07-07 14:05
i want to see heretics on major🥺
2020-07-06 14:08

Gen.g legend status soon Pog
2020-07-06 14:09
We hope. They need to tryhard so they keep their spot (even though the possibility is huge). C9 is team I'm worried about, either Furia can replace them or Made in Bathrooms if 2faced Toledo is desperate.
2020-07-06 19:30
First Major for their team and they legend status in a major? Oh yeah baby

Mibr wins Rio fak the haters
2020-07-06 14:16
Why Na had 3 legend spots?
2020-07-06 14:17
Due to 3 NA teams reaching playoffs in the Berlin major (Renegades, NRG and Liquid)
2020-07-06 15:28
Vitality can be solid contender for the biggest tittles, however I don't think they will be no.1 with this roster. Evil Geniuses is insane, I think it's just the matter of time before they will fight for the biggest tittles again.
2020-07-06 14:30
Think they need to replace Tarik xD but thats more cause cant stand him 😂😂
2020-07-06 15:12
tarik is the type of player who maybe won't make 30 frags, maybe he won't shine to much, but when he really has to he will frag, for me he is solid. And his personality for me is neutral, I don't have anything against him.
2020-07-06 16:29
Oh ik he can be good I just think he is slightly cocky from some of the interviews I have seen with him which aint a big fan of but respect your opinion :)
2020-07-06 17:23
I mean he achieved pretty much everything he could in this game, It's understandable that his ego is high. I don't think that his personality is bad because of that. But respect your opinion aswell.
2020-07-06 18:25
For sure he is a major mvp its not a easy Thing to be :)
2020-07-06 19:01
As I said, he achieved pretty much everything, he is one of the biggest legends this game have ever seen. It's understandable that his ego is high.
2020-07-06 19:38
Without Alex, I think they're gonna do decent in the major but has little to no chance to make it thru playoffs unless they pull a miracle.
2020-07-06 19:32
As I said, they can be contender for the biggest tittles, they can be close to winning it, but I don't think they will be no.1 team with this roster.
2020-07-06 19:39

2020-07-06 15:27
CIS events finished late last month and there is already a post about their RMR standings from that time. Asia's summer RMR event is currently going still.
2020-07-06 15:43
ok thanks
2020-07-06 16:24
So skipping the summit was Best move for astralis they Even remained in legend spot
2020-07-06 15:11
Pakistan LoOuU2
Yepp the decision was pretty good since they would have to change 2 players twice which would had made it 4 changes and equivalent reduction and in short, their points would have gone down the drain. Hopefully we play the last RMR tournament with the main players!
2020-07-06 17:58
Indeed or es3tag instead of xyp should he truly not be ready but I think he took leave so early to make sure he could return in time for major, glaive is back in under a Month 😍

Let's hope for the best and expect to make it as the Legends

Vitality has guaranteed contender spot unless they change player.
2020-07-06 15:29
major in brazil with no brazilian teams... death threats to Liquid, EG, Gen.G, 100T and C9 inc
2020-07-06 15:30
I am pretty sure Furia will make it in, instead of Cloud9
2020-07-06 16:19
Huge possibility of that happening. That's why I'm worried about C9, if Floppy is inconsistent to the point he fallen off the leaderboard and JT goes back to his less agressive IGL mode. Then yeah, Furia might replace C9.
2020-07-06 19:37

2020-07-06 15:34
Pls OG... Play good on one RMR tournament and you'll qualify for major 🙏🙏🙏
2020-07-06 15:37
Rmr is stupid.
2020-07-06 15:38
not the best format, I agree, but Dig is just bad, they do not deserve a spot on the Major as a team.
2020-07-06 16:18
I mean not every team is in invitedd to every event that is giving points to rtr.
2020-07-07 00:33
9. Denmark North - 1900 points (Challenger spot) 17. Europe Complexity - 350 points disgusting
2020-07-06 16:01
2020-07-06 18:08
20. Dignitas 150 points. Poor f0rest, he dont deserve that.
2020-07-06 16:05
It was his decision to leave and continue playing with GTR.
2020-07-06 16:41
If next major the qualifier be lan, they have a chance.
2020-07-06 16:44
Gen.G legends spot? Let's go! Let's go OG too! Feel sad about mous, but they played worst than tier 2 team on this online shit tournaments. And north being on the major instead of complexity makes me wanna puke. But there's always way for Jason lake to bring his juggernaut to the major. Somehow complexity win last RMR tournament.
2020-07-06 16:11
in Europe only the top 4 spots are more or less clinched. The battle for all the others is wide open, anything can happen.
2020-07-06 16:17
In NA the last two Major spots will be decided between 100T, Furia and Cloud9. MIBR is out, let's be realistic.
2020-07-06 16:15
I think Furia and 100T will take those 2 spots. Unless Floppy played like a god and JT stays with his semi agressive type of an IGL he is doing now. Motm and oSee needs to perform as well otherwise, they are out.
2020-07-06 19:42
Germany Pforzfox
All of you talking about the lack of BR teams at the major forget that in addition to the NA qualifier, there's also a SA qualifier, with three out of four teams being Brazilian and BOOM currently in first place. Additionally, they only have two RMR tournaments instead of three, so there's a pretty high likelihood BOOM will make it to the major.

2020-07-06 17:59
Yeah sure, BOOM gets into the major but 1 question. Do you think they're gonna be the underdogs? No, they'll just fall off and only make some moolah off stickers unless nobody buys those BOOM stickers.
2020-07-06 19:44
Germany Pforzfox
Not my point tho, more of a rebuttal to all those celebrating "No Brazilian teams at the major" (I'd also argue BOOM at least has some potential, due to their team being fairly young)
2020-07-07 00:59
Theres going to be atleast 1-2 BR teams and Made in Bathrooms isn't one of them. 😂
2020-07-07 04:36
Germany Pforzfox
Not sure about Furia, tbh - Cloud9 is extremely inconsistent, but at times can have dominant performances and all the other teams are further ahead

2020-07-06 16:35
FURIA must win next quals. or be better placed than C9.
2020-07-06 16:40
Huge chance of Furia getting into the major instead of C9. Unless, C9 pulls an upset again against Furia.
2020-07-06 19:46
how C9 got more points, when FURIA achieved 2nd placement @ RtR Q.?
2020-07-07 00:12
Summit 6 gives more points than RTR. And its going to be the same thing for the last RMR event.
2020-07-07 04:34

2020-07-06 16:45
No major for MIBR. Liquid, GenG,EG, 100T, Furia and C9 all cheaters accusation coming
2020-07-06 17:25
Imagine Fnatic to be not qualified ... Also I need to see Furia at the major it will be a big oof if the don't qualify ..
2020-07-06 19:39
R.I.P Flusha and Brollan.
2020-07-06 19:47
And I hope Big qualify for the major then people see how shit they are in lan events bunch of hackers ...
2020-07-06 19:43
"Mibr and Furia need deep runs in the last tournament in order to qualify" If only they could meet in semis/finals.... they're always on same group and always fighting for the last spot to playoffs
