cs_summit 8 invites revealed

Beyond the Summit has invited the top four teams in the RMR standings to the main event.

FURIA, Liquid, Evil Geniuses and EXTREMUM have received invites to the group stage of cs_summit 8 as the highest-ranked teams in the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) standings, while Extra Salt, paiN, GODSENT and Bad News Bears have been invited to the closed qualifier.

The closed stage will run from May 14-18 and feature the aforementioned quartet as well as four sides from the open qualifiers. All matches will be played as best-of-three affairs in a double-elimination bracket, with the top four advancing to the next phase.

FURIA and EXTREMUM lead the way in the RMR standings

Phase three will see the main event of cs_summit 8 kick off with two GSL groups, where FURIA, Liquid, Evil Geniuses and EXTREMUM will square off with the four best teams from the closed stage from May 20-24. The top two sides from each group will progress to the playoffs' upper bracket and the third-placed teams to the lower bracket.

The playoffs will take place from May 26-30 to round out the $50,000 RMR event and culminate with a best-of-five grand final, with a 5th-6th place decider also being played to determine the final standings.

The cs_summit 8 team list can be found below:

Brazil FURIA
United States Liquid
North America Closed Qualifier
North America Closed Qualifier
Oceania EXTREMUM
North America Evil Geniuses

3. North America Evil Geniuses - 360 points

thats what i meant, they did use that it just happens to be inaccurate sorta in this sense cause 100 thieves died and the team didnt keep up the same skill level for extremum, which is why people might be upset but again its professional to stick with the process once RMR has been around for longer it will be better received in theory

I honestly think that had it not been for the online era, the 100T wouldn't have dropped the Aussies, since their LAN performance was the exact opposite of what they do online. Playing online vs CIS tier 2 teams is a suicide for any top team tbh

oh yeah they wouldnt have dropped them when they did for sure, its obvious it was an economical decision. their form as players however, even on 100 thieves before the online era they were a little hit or miss. I didnt have much confidence in them and always felt like they had potential to choke even if they were doing well, but thats just me

I totally agree with you, but the reality was still that they performed way better offline than online. Although a team with that much potential and firepower (in form of jks mostly) should have achieved more anyways :D

But even with my stupid comment, my point is still valid, even extremum could have choose to compete in EU or CIS and their points and slot would go with them. But yeah, they just choosed NA because it's easier than EU and CIS

yes u can, but only point you got for placement in 2020. so Liquid could have choose to play EU RMR 2021, and their 600 point would stay. also EU would have one more major slot and na would have one less. but if they would change region after cs_summit, they would lose all points

This article proves the exact opposite of you were saying tho: "Q. What happens if a team changes region? A. Regional Major Rankings only represents a team’s performance relative to other teams in the region. Therefore, any region change by a team will result in a reset of the team’s Major Ranking points."

Pretty much article already said It based from leftover RMR points. This pretty much will be similar for other regions, It's the advantage given for their result in 2020 which should earn them major spot if It was held that year.
