FURIA and MIBR have become the first two teams to qualify for the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 through the American RMR.
As there is only one 'Legends Status' spot for the American region, the two teams will be playing a tie-breaker on 14th April.
The North American trio of Party Astronauts, Evil Geniuses, and Team Liquid improve their results to reach the '2-1' bracket.

The second day of the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: American RMR has concluded with FURIA Esports and MIBR confirming a slot for themselves in the upcoming Major. While the two Brazilian teams had a lot to celebrate, Bad News Bears and Leviatán became the first pair of teams to face elimination from the LAN qualifier.

Imperial Esports and Complexity Gaming will get a second chance to qualify for the Major tomorrow in the '2-1' bracket. Both the top North American organizations Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid will be facing off against each other after continuing their recovery today.

Another exciting day awaits everyone as three teams will be booking themselves a slot in the Majors, while three others will face elimination from the American RMR.

It was an absolutely intense day of action at the American RMR. The first match of the day took place between Imperial and MIBR, the former starting the proceedings by winning the first map but failing to close out the series, which led to a '2-1' victory for MIBR.

FURIA made quick work of Complexity by ensuring a clean '2-0' victory, the first win being secured on Ancient followed by another on Vertigo. Complexity still has a chance to qualify as they take on Caetano in the '2-1' bracket tomorrow.

The '1-1' bracket witnessed the North American trio of EG, Liquid, and Party Astronauts winning their respective matches against 00 Nation, paiN Gaming, and Case Esports.

But while Party Astronauts will be taking on the Brazilian roster of Imperial, both the North American giants EG and Liquid will have to take on each other. Only one of them will be able to move further in the tournament, while the other drops down to the '2-2' bracket.

The two teams that got eliminated today are Bad News Bears and Leviatan, both of them getting completely wiped by their opponents 9z and oNe, who survived one series only to move on to another decider against 00 Nation and paiN respectively.

Three more teams will be getting eliminated on the third day, it will be interesting to see which teams continue to survive whereas which three bow out of the qualifiers tomorrow.
