[VOD] HLTV Confirmed with Machine: Who will qualify for the Major through IEM Fall?

Ahead of the final round of Regional Major Rankings events, Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson joins HLTV Confirmed - live at 20:00 .

HLTV Confirmed's panelists Milan "⁠Striker⁠" Švejda, Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill and Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin return for another episode of the show on Monday, 27 September, with Machine joining as the guest.

The episode will focus on the upcoming series of IEM Fall tournaments which serve as the final RMR events and will determine who goes to the PGL Stockholm Major, and who will miss out.

Machine joins HLTV Confirmed for the first time

The show will also touch on BLAST Premier Group C, where we saw Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David debut for Complexity, and Natus Vincere put in another consistent showing. Towards the end of the episode, the panelists will create their own Fantasy team for an upcoming tournament and add some more thoughts on the latest CS:GO update.

Fair enough, and s1mple is shy on camera so you probably never gonna see him on the interviews for navi, instead only people like b1ad3 to talk.
2021-09-28 02:00
of course it is :D he is not Tom Cruise or another world star, nobody knows him outside CS
2021-09-28 11:54
Are any teams already qualified? Or is it all based on this IEM placing

Navi is qualified
2021-09-28 00:45
I'm disapointed. They should have talked more about how fucked the RMR system is in most continents, that previous results dont matter at all. Or as in SA where this rmr doesn't matter at all. Instead they talked about Europe where the situation is relatively fine. Which means not fine with bo1 round robins all around. Whole rmr point system is so fucked.

worst episode this year :-(
