The first Open Qualifier for the IEM Fall CIS Regional Major Ranking event, the last RMR to be held before the PGL Stockholm Major, has been concluded. Making it all the way through were the newly-signed Singularity squad and top-100 team INDE IRAE.
Over 128 teams were in competition at the qualifier, with high-seed 1WIN crashing out early, and notable teams such as Marlian, Trasko, AVE, and B8 not able to make it to the round-of-8, which was covered with HLTV matches.
In the final two rounds of games, DavCost's INDE IRAE took down Maksim "t0rick" Zaikin's MayBe before overcoming EC Kyiv 2-1. Meanwhile, Singularity swept AVE 16-3 in the quarters and managed a 2-0 over Websterz as GuardiaN and Timur "clax" Sabirov topped the scoreboard (1.32 and 1.31 rating).
The two open qualifier teams are now set to face off against the likes of Entropiq, Akuma, and Nemiga in the closed qualifier. Out of eight teams, six will advance to the main event and compete for RMR points.
