The European RMR A concluded yesterday on 20th April as the final three teams made it through to the PGL Major Antwerp 2022. Team Vitality, Eternal Fire, and Outsiders were the final three teams that qualified for the Major attaining a challenger status.

Simultaneously, it also marked the end of the journey for MOUZ, OG, and SAW who all fought brilliantly right till the very last bracket of the LAN qualifiers.

It was an exceptional effort by the Portuguese esports organization SAW who surpassed all expectations by surviving until the very last match. SAW managed to defeat teams like Unique and Fnatic on its journey, while giving a tough time to forZe and Outsiders before bowing out of the competition.

Eight more CS:GO teams have booked a slot for themselves at the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 as the European RMR A comes to an end following four days of non-stop action.

The final three teams that made it through to the 'New Challengers Stage' of the Antwerp Major are Team Vitality, Eternal Fire, and Outsiders, all of them facing a real tough time at the qualifiers before clinching themselves a slot in their very last attempt.

MOUZ initially took down Vitality on its map pick Nuke with a '16-13' scoreline, getting an early advantage in the three-game series. However, Vitality clawed its way back into the series following an equalizer on Dust 2 which was followed by another victory on Mirage.

Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut took on the responsibility of being the star player for the side perfectly, attaining an overall HLTV rating of 1.43 and top fragging for the side across all the three maps.

Eternal Fire despite losing to FaZe Clan and Vitality earlier in the qualifier was looking in good shape. The losses did not affect them as they muscled their way through Dignitas and Fnatic before squaring off against OG with a Major slot on the line.

Consecutive '16-14' victories across Vertigo and Dust 2 sealed the final victory in favour of Eternal Fire as they became the first Turkish CS:GO team to qualify for a Major since FACEIT London Major 2018.

Outsiders faced a lot of problem against SAW who seemed determined to cause an upset and even came very close to making it a possibility. Both the teams won their map picks, Dust 2 (Outsiders) and Ancient (SAW), pretty comfortably before facing off on Inferno.

The third game kept everyone at the edge of their seats as Outsiders fought hard to take the game into overtime after having faced a '13-7' deficit at one point in time. They eventually won the decider, and with it the series, to narrowly make their way through to the Antwerp Major.

With this, the European RMR A has concluded and here are all the eight CS:GO teams that made it through to the PGL Antwerp Major 2022,

  • Heroic - Legend Status

  • BIG - Legend Status

  • FaZe Clan - Legend Status

  • Natus Vincere - Legend Status

  • Team Vitality - Challenger Status
