Following the conclusion of ESL One: Road to Rio regional tournaments, the Summer Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournament has been announced in the form of cs_summit 6 for both Europe and North American regions.
The tournament which is being hosted by Beyond the Summit is scheduled to take place from 22nd June to 5th July, right after the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Finals and just before the preponed summer player break taking place from 6th July - 6th August.
This particular tournament will be taking place only for the above-mentioned regions, featuring a total prizepool of $200,000 split equally between the two regions. It will be offering 25% more points to the teams in comparison to the Road to Rio tournament.
First time in the organizer’s history will a CS:GO tournament be played online that too in partnership with Valve, as all previous iterations were played out of their studio in Los Angeles.
Valve has further updated that though they intend to have a complete RMR tournament in the fall, the second RMR tournament which is also the summer event will not be taking place for the South American or Oceania regions. The decision for CIS and Asia region is still pending and might be revealed at a later date.
