Invites for final Asia, Oceania RMR tournaments announced
Perfect World Asia League Fall and Perfect World Oceania League Fall are the two final Regional Major Ranking tournaments for their respective regions, with details and invited teams now revealed.
Following the news regarding which organizers will be in charge of which Fall RMR tournaments, Perfect World has come out with details about the Asian and Oceanic competitions. Perfect World already held an RMR event, the summer one for Asia which saw TYLOO crowned champions, while Oceania didn't feature an RMR event in the summer, only the Road to Rio one hosted by ESL in May.
Liam "malta" Schembri spoke about their 2020 feeling like a wasted effort and aired his concerns about Renegades attending any international LAN this year, but his team are still favorites in Perfect World Oceania League Fall and earn a Major spot, with ORDER, Ground Zero, and Chiefs the other four invited teams:
Renegades currently sit atop of the RMR rankings with 1600 points, but everything is still up in the air as winning POL Fall will net a team a whopping 2500 points, as well as $12,500 from the $50,000 prize pool:
1. $12,500 + 2500 RMR Points
2. $10,000 + 2344 RMR Points
3. $7,500 + 2188 RMR Points
4. $6,000 + 2031 RMR Points
Perfect World Asia League Fall will feature more teams than the Oceanic tournament, ten in total, with TYLOO, ViCi, and TIGER among invites. TYLOO have a significant lead heading into the event, 400 points, but are still far from safe as only the #1 ranked team earns a spot at the Major.
The prize pool for PAL Fall is double of the competition in Oceania, $100,000, with the distribution being as follows:
1. $25,000 + 2500 RMR Points
2. $20,000 + 2344 RMR Points
3. $15,000 + 2188 RMR Points
4. $12,000 + 2031 RMR Points
The tournaments are expected to take place in late September and October, with more details about the formats, schedule, and qualifiers to come.
