ESL One: Rio 2020 Major cancelled due to coronavirus pandemic

The global health crisis continues to disrupt the Counter-Strike calendar as this will be the first year since 2013 without a Major.

The 2020 Counter-Strike Major Championship, ESL One: Rio, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, ESL announced on Wednesday. The Major system has been put on hold for the time being because of the global health crisis, with Valve and ESL both committed to bringing the showpiece event to Rio de Janeiro once conditions have sufficiently improved.

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."

In a blog post, Valve stated that it will hold off on scheduling Majors until it is safe to host Regional Major Ranking (RMR) events on LAN again. Until then, the game developer added, these events — which are part of the new Major qualification system introduced by Valve in 2020 — will continue to be played online "to keep track of the best teams in each region."

All tickets purchased for the 2020 Major will be valid for the new dates, whenever the event will be held. Ticket-holders can also request a refund directly through their Eventbrite account.

The ESL One: Rio Major adds to the list of events that have either been cancelled or moved online because of the pandemic. It will be replaced in the tournament calendar by IEM Beijing-Haidian, an online tournament covering four regions with $250,000 in prize money.

This means that 2020 will be the first year without a Counter-Strike Major since 2013, when Valve decided to support the competitive scene by partnering with tournament organisers. After a successful first experiment at DreamHack Winter, at the end of 2013, Valve hosted three Majors in each of the following two years. Between 2016 and 2019, the number of Majors was reduced to two per year, though there was a significant increase in prize money to $1 million, up from $250,000.

aka probably the only reason we dont get a major is because of BR. First they accuse of cheats, then they cheat, then they dont wear a mask and destroy a whole cs major lul

Its sad that a flue can stop the entire world. Worst case you get pneumonia. If your body cant handle that you die. To bad we can't force the elderly people of this world to stay inside, because they are single handedly ruining this year because of their ignorance.

It's not only old people dying of this disease, and it can have long-term follows for young people as well. I don't think the elderly could handle being alone for a whole year because of loneliness, not to mention the people getting daily-care.

'just a flu' yeah some young athletes has had to retire after corona because they just cant train anymore, can barely walk without getting tired and that is months after having the disease. Tell me a flue that fucks your body so bad that even months after you still have muscles and are technically In great shape but you just dont have the energy anymore

wtf? Why would you think something like this? Because of "twitter death threats". Dude, brazilians talk shit everywhere, and the fact you guys doesn't like the trash talks, is the reason that we continue talking. We have our problems, like poverty and robbery and our behavior isn't in a lord level, but Brazil is great. There is no such a thing like killing about something irrelevant bad english srry

Why Valve needs to bring back lan ( Even Most of other esports are back with lan already ) 1. Online Matches are easy to fix 2. Making money from online tournaments are easy 3. They gets more money from trash tournaments like LB/Nine to five etc which won't be get more bets money if lan returns. KekW

If someone is scared then he will stay in home and he will be safe. He won't get affected by ppl that are not scared when he doesn't have contact with them. And the life since this shit started is much much worse, pools etc. closed, the life has changed, and it's not nice.
2020-09-17 14:50
Wayyy more people would have to stay home if it was THEIR responsibility to stay home if they are "scared". The infected people stay at home. End of story. Thats the most effective way that confines the smallest amount of people to their home. If you attempted to think about this for like 30 seconds you would understand that and be able to think of it yourself instead of writing this dumb stuff.
2020-09-17 16:49
#479
 | 
Poland SebL
Then just make ppl that are infected not even stay at home but stay at quarantine in some kind of isolation, and make older ppl or weaker ppl that are in danger of getting killed by this shit stay home, and it will work. That's basically what I'm saying from the beggining lol.
2020-09-17 16:52
Why would you confine however many millions of old folks to their home when you can just force infected people to stay home and expect people to wear masks. This is the smallest intrusion in our freedom under these circumstances yet every Karen on the planet complains about it.
2020-09-17 16:53
#481
 | 
Poland SebL
I wouldn't force old and weak ppl to stay at home, I would allow them to do it if they would want to, masks are needed and we have to force ppl to wear it.
2020-09-17 17:00
So instead you would let the infected people roam around normally? Are you out of your mind?

Wtf are you even saying lol. Where did I say that? I said that I would close infected ppl in quarantine.
2020-09-18 16:28
Okay? So where exactly do we disagree? We both would quarantine infected people. Which government forces old people to stay in home? Most governments dont quarantine ANYONE except for infected people.
2020-09-18 17:57
#485
 | 
Poland SebL
It's obvious that we need to quarantine infected ppl, without that there would be to much death cases. But they do some kind of regulations, they close pools etc., and they block a lot of aspects of life, which is not a good thing, because if someone wants to risk then he is risking his own health so who cares.
2020-09-18 18:00
Bro you used "closing pools" the second time as the example for what they do with public life. You have your priorities in the fucking gutter. The reason they close certain activities is because they are NOT that important, but VERY risky for the prevention of the spread. This stuff is infectious long before it shows symptoms. Which is why just quarantining the infected isnt enough.
2020-09-18 18:17
#488
 | 
Poland SebL
And what? If we use masks, 1.5m away from each other then if someone is infected he will realize that without infecting other ppl and he will be in quarantine and after some time he will be fine. And pool for some ppl is very important. And it's only an example. And quarantining isn't enough that's why I'm saying that we need masks and 1.5m away from each other, that would be enough.
2020-09-18 19:47
And yet obviously it isnt enough because even WITH closing things that are very unimportant, the pandemic doesnt calm down.
2020-09-19 15:09
#490
 | 
Poland SebL
Very unimportant lol. Everything is important to someone, and it's not worth closing it because there is still more and more cases so just stop with those shit limitations that still doesn't work.
2020-09-19 15:11
Objectively important, m8. Idgaf about whether you like to prance around in a FUCKING POOL. And without these limitations it would be EVEN WORSE.

Why do they want to host it in Brazil so badly? Brazil is a terrible place to host tournaments. Put the major in Europe somewhere literally ANYWHERE, and you can still have it. Or rent out an island fly all the players out and host it there. Either of those options is better than Brazil.
2020-09-10 01:27
Its valve, do you really think they gonna book an island? LOL! If people were gonna pay to watch maybe they would but it isnt like that

Just have the major in Europe where the virus is under control. Make every player get tested and quarantined for a week before the event. Players could also be socially distanced for the entire event but still have it on LAN. No crowd of course but no crowd major is still better than no major at all.
