Americas, EU & CIS, Asia & Oceania regions to be merged for upcoming Major-qualifying cycle

HLTV.org has learned that the upcoming Regional Major Ranking cycle will feature three regions: The Americas, Europe & CIS, and Asia & Oceania.

On Tuesday, a hidden link to new guidelines for the 2022 and 2023 Regional Major Ranking cycle was leaked, and speculation began to arise over several key changes.

A new rule which states that "a team's region is determined by the citizenship of the majority of its players" became the main point of contention. This rule was not in place in the previous cycle, as teams could choose in which region they competed, with several Brazilian teams as well as Australian side EXTREMUM opting to play in North America, for example.

CIS and European teams will battle each other for RMR points under the new system

HLTV.org knows that this is a result of more extensive changes to the Major-qualifying system. Sources tell us that Valve has decided to run RMR events on LAN in just three big regions in the future, combining the Americas into one region, as well as Europe and CIS, and Asia with Oceania. Should the RMR cycle have to take place online, the regions are expected to be split up into the original six again.

In combination, the regions will hold just as many slots in the next Major cycle as they did for the PGL Major Stockholm. The new Americas RMR cycle will offer 6 spots (previously 5 in NA and 1 in SA) at the next Major, Europe will have 16 (previously 11 in Europe and 5 in CIS), while Asia and Oceania will offer 2 spots (previously 1 in each region).

The distribution of the Legend, Challenger, and Contender spots should follow results from the previous Major event. The upcoming Major should then have the following slot distribution:

Europe & CIS — 7 Legends, 6 Challengers, 3 Contenders
Americas — 1 Legend, 2 Challengers, 3 Contenders
Asia & Oceania — 2 Contenders

Two Major tournaments are expected to be hosted in 2022, in May and November, but the details of either tournament are still yet to be unveiled.

ESL stated back in September that the Rio Major — which had been planned for May 2020 but was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic — was under consideration for 2022. Tuesday's report from Dexerto says there are "tentative plans" for an ESL Major to take place in Rio de Janeiro on October 31-November 13.

Virtus pro is garbage? Replace Jame with someone with some balls and that team would be a top 5 team even with these new rosters given time to grow like the new g2 I think virtus pro could consistently be a top 5 team if only their igl AND awpers ideology of how the game should be played was a bit less extreme. And even with Jame pulling Jame shit they're easily a top ten team consistently. Top ten in the world isn't garbage. Also cis has a super strong tier 2 scene with constant talent coming to tier 1 unlike practically every single region. Hell even Denmark didn't produce any serious new tier 1 talents in 2021. Look at cis, yekindar, bit , el1an. And more all rookies making it to tier one SUCCESSFULLY instead of recycling players. At the rate cis is growing talent it wouldn't be surprising if they're the number one region for a few years. I know that wasn't your point but my point is that yes there's alot of tier 2 overhyped cis teams. But they're overhyped because they have some really promising players here n there. Which then will make it into the vps, gambits, and navis, hell there's enough talent that if somehow it was possible with contracts and all that to make a 4th team with all the best possible options not on those 3 teams I think it could be ANOTHER top ten team. This is all just one region that was considered worse than na besides navi until very very recently. I think calling these tier 2 teams garbage is a bit unfair when you consider you could also say things like "besides astralis which is already maybe shit and then heroic Denmarks other teams are shit". In other words you can say that sentence about literally any region

What's the real tragedy is even with a shuffle that ignores personal interests and is only focused on making the best team possible. It's debatable if that team could contend with navi for number 1. This is Danish scene for Christ's sake it shouldn't be debatable if they'd be equals to navi. What should be debatable is if theyd be better not equals. Atleast if we were back a few years Danish talent pool wise

Yep, our top teams have generally had the better of the results over the Asian teams. The Katowice 2019 minor for example, Renegades topped it and Greyhound were 2nd for the 2 automatic qualifier spots. Vici only got in by winning through the 3rd place playoff. Tyloo did get 2nd behind Greyhound for Starladder, but that was more because Renegades already had the Legends spot. Right now I could see it being Renegades easily and one of LFO/Order. I'm not sure Asia has anyone that could compete on that level at the moment.

It's most likely Renegades and TYLOO grabbing the spots, but I believe that Australia stopped developing and Asia has more prospects at the moment, so AU could be gone in the future. Also you should stop living in 2019 bro, Australia was really good back then, now it is really not.

Also you are just proving my point from the post above: "Asia has more prospects at the moment". It's the rest that got stronger, not TYLOO that became worse. Vici is the strongest Asian team along TYLOO, Lynn proved themselves in Europe. NKT is basically an asian version of superteam.
2022-01-26 04:28
2 replies
Lynn proved that they are a lower tier than LFO at least, since they have been losing to lower teams than what LFO are currently competitive and posting some wins against. Heck, current tournament, LFO beat HAVU 2-0 and Lynn just lost 2-1. NKT isn't Mongolian now. They were at the time. There's a recent direct comparison for Vici. Renegades made group stage of Cologne last year by beating MIBR and OG, Vici lost to Complexity, then EG of all teams in the loser bracket first round. I don't think they are anywhere near the same level. And if they are beating Tyloo, it doesn't say much for any of their chances.

Hard to judge when they didn't play h2h even once. It's also woth mentioning that they are playing with an upgrade in form of EspiranTo at the moment. Lynn took a map off G2, beat 1shot, GORILLAZ and Dignitas. Had a promising performance in numerous games. They've proven their worth altohugh they were trialing players while doing so. Renegades in undoubted number 1 in Australia and that's why I listed them as the team that will grab 1 of the slots. We are talking about the future that will be rough for Australia, not the past. NKT was never Mongolian, stop talking bullshit and admit you were mistaken. You still didn't mention a single mongolian team, although "Tyloo are losing to Mongolian teams somewhat regularly these days.".

That doesn't even need to happen, they can very much all qualify if they play decently. There aren't any less spots, the spots were just added into one region, EU spots + CIS spots. The only different aspect will be competitiveness, which will increase and teams for both regions will get the chance to play against each other.

That is a good point, and the reason why they didn't do that is distance I reckon; after all, EU and CIS are practically next to one another and same thing for the Americas (on the other hand, that shouldn't really be a problem for LAN events since we got planes and stuff, but it is a starting point).
2022-01-25 17:13
1 reply
true about distance, but the skill gap between EU and CIS is small, while the gap between NA (+Asia+Oceania) and EU is unreal and SA is like somewhere in the middle, so it would've made more sense to group like Asia with CIS or Oceania with SA, or NA with EU (especially since a lot of NA teams bootcamp in EU) to at least make them pracc against each other but with current region locks it barely does anything

2022-01-25 17:03
The thing they could do is make the event bigger, more teams, more spots, make a giant event with 3 weeks lenght. But i dont think valve want to invest more.

Yes it should be bigger than 24 teams
2022-01-25 17:10
it WILL be based off the last Major placings though, that's why the Americas only get 1 Legends Spot (FURIA at PGL), 2 Challengers (Liquid and EG) and 3 contenders (GODSENT, Sharks and Pain Gaming).
2022-01-25 17:03

But they got those spots from the major before Stockholm. Previously the contenders didn't keep their spots, instead new teams came from minor. Eg instead of those 3 contenders you would get 2 from Americas. So Americas are getting +1 extra spot like this.
2022-01-25 17:07
1 reply
I'm not sure Valve wants to sink the Americas region even further down, plus if no teams make it past the Challengers Stage (except that one Legend) they would all get Contender for the next Major. And yes, I get that it is the lowest they can go, they can't exit the Major cycle completely, yet I think 6 teams is an OK amount versus the huge number of EU & CIS teams, even though it's probable that more teams from the latter would make it if they had additional spots.

because there is a logistics problem the orgs now need to have a office in SA so they can play valve tournaments but there is plenty na tournaments which these teams should participate now SA players need to not only pass seasons in EU but in NA and SA too. It will be expensive, tiring and much more brs didnt watch the sa scene the same way they watch br teams playing against na and eu teams there is a lot of problem envolving this changes in my opinion, but valve needed to do something about the rising popularity of valorant in NA

again, this was happening already!! nothing changed, BR teams were playing RMR either in NA or SA (in SA only the coward ones that preferred to fight only for 1 spot in order to avoid stronger teams). So these orgs have offices there, since most are BR orgs, and the ones that are not from there are rich orgs with lots of funding like Imperial, 00nation or sharks. Also that thing that BR teams were able to do to chose between different regions for their convenience was totally immoral. Now everybody play the same RMR and thats it, you can get an advantage from that and qualify 6 BR teams. If Europeans are not crying having cis merged I don't get why you guys cry so much. Oh and another good thing is that latam teams like 9z get more chances to fight against t1 teams more often. Its not only you guys who live there.

This is not how the RMR points system works. The only way you retain any points at all is with a 3-man core If you made a team with s1mple + zywoo + niko + sh1ro + ⁠electronic, that team would have 0 RMR points
2022-01-25 19:28
3 replies
The 3-man-core maintains points for qualifying for the major. I'm talking about points to consider inviting teams to RMR. And for that, they'll probably use something like that, because almost every team in SA made changes "When does a team get invited to an RMR event or the Major? A. After a team submits their roster, their points are evaluated. After all teams register, invitations are sent to the top teams by RMR"

Fallen + Fer + Boltz + FNX + Vini = 0 RMR Points but the same line had SA RMR Points, just like: Elige + NAF + Nitr0 + Shox + oSee = 0 RMR Points but had NA RMR Points, or do you think Liquid will play closed qualifier?

there wont be that many qualifys and most certainly at least one of them will be in BR so its not like they need to invest a lot more to participate in them, on the contrary, before few people followed the SA qualifiers, with the merge, the top SA teams will certainly have a lot more more visibility

What do you mean? Legends are typically the eight consistently best teams, they get one because FURIA fluked itself into the playoffs with lucky draw and a few lucky wins. CPH and FaZe were both better, just unlucky. But if you actually look at the top 8 best teams there's definitely not a single American team among them, the best American team right now is FURIA which is ranked 11 but is probably closer to 13 or 14.

NA last year was a disaster it should not be a measuring tool for America as a whole. I agree that they should have 1 legend spot only, but saying Eu and CIS have 7 is weird on paper: its basically saying if ur not from that region ur shit. The biggest problem is merging EU & CIS: Just like Euro and World Cup everybody would just watch that instead of major, you litterally have 16 teams that you send to the major, so assuming that the qualifiers is 24 its just a more competitive version of the major.

Bad places? What bad places? Saying FURIA was lucky at the major is a slippery slope to ... I can't even think of a joke to make here, it literally changes nothing whether FURIA was or wasn't lucky at the major or whether or not I think they were. You can't deny that CPH and FaZe were both a lot better than FURIA at the major and that CPH got super unlucky in the draw.
2022-01-25 18:28
It would be cool if teams reaching the semis earn two spots for their region in Legends, that would mean all 8 spots would be for Europe and CIS. Seems much more fair. There are no American Legend teams, so none deserve a Legend spot.

That's true, that's why I suggested to increase the standard. FURIA got a lucky draw and even a few lucky wins, CPH clearly deserved it more, and FaZe too for that matter. If you look at the best 8 teams at the major, or the best 8 teams now, in neither list is any team of the Americas.

With this change, Valve NEEDS to change the 5 NA spots to at maximum 2. NA region is beeing carried by brazilian rosters since 2016
2022-01-25 17:57
I like this change. It will be especially fun to see the chaos in the EU/CIS region. Also, just one legend spot for NA/SA is pretty fair, considering the previous major, but I wish them good luck nevertheless.
2022-01-25 17:58
Honestly this is fucked up, NA + SA combined with less spots than EU & CIS legend spots alone? What the fuck volvo, you just killed NA in major tournaments... Furia will grab the legends spot for sure with saffee. Also RIP to asian CS, with the old 100T roster and renegades.

i imagine the legends spots will change considering the previous major, if Liquid, Furia and Godsent go to major playoffs in next major, for example, probably Americas will have 3 legends spots for Rio
2022-01-25 18:07
only EU teams from now on
2022-01-25 18:06

2022-01-25 18:12
Lots of gatekeeper CIS teams will be wrecking tier 2 eu teams who could just barely otherwise make it. I don't see much other big change.

wait this is bad no ? i appreciate if ur answer has arguments, it means smaller teams wont get a chance...right?
2022-01-25 18:29
what a terrible setup. This is explicitly unfair with ocian/asian and south american teams. At least CIS teams will knock a lot of bad EU teams out.
2022-01-25 18:34
I think it is good for Europe, more competition, and better teams at the major (if there will be at least 2 RMRs). NA and SA are finally united and basically stay the same. Asia+OCE as it was on the minors, so no big differences. But I think it is time to increase amount of teams at the major to 32 - fine number be able to put teams into reasonable conditions and have structure.

Hmm, where does people from Africa play? Is it in America’s because the players often are affiliated with NA players? ATK have majority of South Africans, and JT and the former C9 squad would have had a similar situation
2022-01-25 18:46
Honestly Americas deserve less spots

2022-01-26 02:18
Ok so garbage CIS teams like akuma will qualify to majors because of this, that's bs, considering the worse EU teams like ence or mouse will probably loose against these teams online but can smoke them on Lan. I believe merging CIS and EU will be a problem since we will see untalented onliners more. But when it comes to America's it would be interesting since there are quite a few Brazilian teams I would prefer to see over teams like liquid or coL

Don't worry, most likely the CIS and EU will only meet in LAN. There will be regional qualifiers that will be held online.
2022-01-25 19:01
The article says that RMRs will take place on LAN and that if they have to be online, the regions would be split in six again.

They should just skip the Legend spots and let every team qualify again to get more chances for the new upcoming teams/players.

CIS + EU is going to be awesome to watch. That's basically a major.
2022-01-25 19:10
In order to qualify for the major, the best teams in the world will all play with each other on EU-CIS tournaments. This way Challengers stage will be worse than RMR tournaments, because they will have to play against some tier3 Brazilian teams. I takes away a lot of exciment from major and RMR will be more important, I prefered it when CIS and EU were splited, as we didn't get all the best match-ups before major (e.g. Navi vs Astralis or Gambit vs Vitality )

Glad that all that BS that would go on in NA has finally been addressed and fixed
2022-01-25 19:17
Would make more sense to put CIS in with Asia... Europe already have the biggest scene, most teams and players. Paring that with what will be the 2 largest scene just means a lot of the best wont get spots. CIS and Europe is around 80-90% of the talent and top teams.. will they get that much of the placements? Seems like another Valve Blunder.

you have a scarcity mentality. Now SA teams get more chances to play against t1/t2 teams during the year. Its a really good thing for SA, stop thinking short-term.

Kinda good for Oceania teams because none of them were beating Renegades to take the single Aus spot. Now they can fight the Asian teams for the second.
