All 52 teams in running for 24 PGL Major Antwerp spots are set

The Regional Major Ranking event teams are set as 52 teams are set to travel to Bucharest next month in a bid to qualify for PGL Major Antwerp.

The qualifying stage ahead of the Regional Major Ranking events has concluded following the end of the second and final North American qualifier, which saw Evil Geniuses, paiN, and Party Astronauts squeeze in at the last minute.

That means we know all the 52 teams who will be in the running for a spot at PGL Major Antwerp, as well as those who missed out and will have to try again in the next Major cycle in about six months' time.

From the 52 hopefuls, 24 teams will earn a berth at the next Major

The upcoming RMR tournaments taking place in Bucharest, Romania will have it all to play for with all 24 Major spots on offer, with a whopping 16 slots allocated to the European & CIS super-region, 6 going to the Americas region, and 2 to the Asia & Oceania side of things.

Here's who is in the running in each tournament:

Americas (April 11-14) - 6 spots

In the Americas, only FURIA had a guaranteed spot at the RMR as the only representative from the region to reach the top 16 at PGL Major Stockholm and to retain a three-man lineup core.

Everyone else had to qualify through open tournaments — two in South America and two in North America —, in which most of the fan favorites made it through. However, notable names like GODSENT and Sharks who played in the first stage of the previous Major did not make it.

The aforementioned 16 teams will play a Swiss format in Bucharest in less than a month's time for direct qualification to Antwerp, with 1 Legend, 2 Challenger, and 3 Contender spots on offer.

Asia (April 15-16) - 2 spots

In Asia, all four participating teams had to qualify through tournaments in Oceania, China, the Middle East, and Rest of Asia. Major mainstays Renegades and TYLOO unsurprisingly made it in their respective countries, while the Mongolian IHC team won the RoA tournament.

Lynn Vision topped the ME qualifier following a controversial decision to let the Chinese side as well as Looking For Org play there while they were competing and training in Europe for an extended period.

This quartet will play in a double-elimination bracket to determine which two teams secure Contender status at PGL Major Antwerp.

Europe (April 17-24) - 16 spots

Over on the European and CIS side of things, 13 spots were awarded to teams who placed in the top 16 at the previous Major, while the rest was spread out across five qualifiers — four for Europe & CIS teams and one for Far East Russia.

Perhaps the biggest names who didn't make it were K23, currently residing within HLTV.org's top 20 teams, SKADE, Wisla Krakow, ECSTATIC, and Apeks, among a plethora of other notable names coming from the most competitive region in CS:GO.

The super-region teams were split into two groups of 16, which will be played in Swiss formats and offer 7 Legend, 6 Challenger, and 3 Contender spots in total across the two tournaments.

True, That's why the seeding purpose match is useless if you don't even know which group of your team would be placed to. We can understand with the qualifier 1 but why all qualified teams in Q2 were placed in group B while the winner Q3 and Q4, goes to A. Like wtf.
