All the 13 regional qualifiers for their respective RMR (Regional Major Rankings) tournaments have concluded as 52 CS:GO teams are now set to compete for a spot in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022.

The road ahead will not be easy, with the qualified teams competing in a studio LAN tournament scheduled to take place in the month of April at PGL Studios in Bucharest, Romania. In total, four RMR events will be taking place, two for European teams and one each for American and Asia-Pacific (APAC) teams.

Each region has a specific number of slots allotted to them for the Antwerp Major. While the two European RMR tournaments offer 16 slots in total, the American RMR has only six slots to offer, leaving the APAC RMR with the final two slots.

All 52 CS:GO teams set for the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: RMR tournaments

Valve had introduced the RMR format in 2020 following the cancellation of CS:GO Majors due to the entire competitive circuit shifting online. This was done to ensure that a proper qualification process is followed for the next CS:GO Major. The concept underwent a few changes last year in 2021 and this is how teams qualified for the PGL Major Stockholm 2021.

This year the concept has undergone further drastic changes and now only a single set of RMR events take place ahead of the Majors, acting as a direct qualifier for the biggest tournament of the year.

PGL Major Antwerp 2022 is the first big tournament that will be employing the use of this new RMR method, as four such events are planned to take place in the month of April, roughly a month before the scheduled start of the Major.

This is the only regional RMR tournament that has been split into two, European RMR A and European RMR B, both of them consisting of 16 teams each with half of them getting an opportunity to qualify for the Majors.
