NAVI, FaZe Clan, ForZe Qualify for PGL Antwerp Major 2022
The next three teams have made it through to Antwerp.
The European RMR (Regional Major Rankings) A is nearing its conclusion as three more teams make it through to the PGL Antwerp Major 2022. FaZe Clan, Natus Vincere (NAVI), and forZe are the three teams that have qualified for the Major after attaining victory over MOUZ, Vitality, and SAW respectively.
With this, they will be joining Heroic and BIG who made it through the LAN qualifiers in their first attempt. But while some teams qualified, a few others had to bid farewell to their dreams of competing at the Major.
Team Unique, Fnatic, and Dignitas were among those teams that had to bid farewell to the qualifier following a loss against OG, Eternal Fire, and Outsiders (Virtus.pro) respectively.

Vitality is just not able to finish big as their vows continue to prick them against top tier opposition. The team gave NAVI a tough fight across both the maps, Inferno and Mirage, but failed to ensure victory across any one of them which resulted in a clean '0-2' sweep for the Ukrainian organization.
Once again it was Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev who led the charge for NAVI with an overall HLTV rating of 1.47 and an ADR (Average Damage per Round) of almost 91.
However, the main surprise was NAVI's shotcaller Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov stepping up big time on Inferno to help NAVI secure a '16-13' win over Vitality. He held an overall HLTV rating of 1.57 on the map along with a K/D of +8, while smoothly guiding his team through the map at all times.
FaZe Clan returned to its flawless glory against MOUZ to knock them down to the do-or-die bracket, following consecutive victories on Nuke and Inferno.
It was a team game from FaZe that crushed MOUZ hard as every FaZe player attained an overall rating of more than 1.0. Robin "ropz" Kool took a day off and Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken along with Helvijs "broky" Saukants shouldered the fragging responsibilities for the side.
The Russian esports organization forZe was the fifth team to make it through the European RMR following a '2-1' victory over SAW. The first map was a struggle as it went down '16-14' after putting up a tough fight on Nuke.
But this was enough to trigger a comeback response as it slammed quick back-to-back victories on Dust II and Inferno, losing just eight maps in total across the final two games.
The final three CS:GO teams for the Major will be qualifying through the European RMR A later today as six teams fight it out in the final three best-of-three series.
