Day 1 of the second NA RMR Open Qualifier wraps up
The first Open Qualifier booked the tickets of Complexity, Liquid, Bad News Bears, and oNe. With only three spots left, the rest of NA will be battling it out. With four of the heavyweights out of the picture in this second tournament, it's high time for teams like Evil Genuises and GODSENT to make their mark on the qualifier. Follow the bracket here.
08:10PM Day one concludes!
It was an exciting day with dozens of matches all taking place concurrently, however, at the end of it all, we get to see who emerges from the dust to fight another day. For the most part, the favorites breezed through their matches, taking down the mix teams in their path. There were, however, a few notable upsets. UYU took down Damian "daps" Steele's Orgless project in the round of 64. This sadly means that we will not be seeing the Canadian and his American posse in Romania to fight for a major slot. In addition, daps' former teammate "stanislaw" was also unable to make it to day two after his BHOP took a beating in the round of 32. All this sets up the bracket for Sunday's affairs, which are sure to be exciting! Don't miss our live coverage as well as our live stream which will be following the most interesting matches of the remaining 16 teams.

Over 200 teams have signed up for this second NA RMR. The top three teams will rise above the rest over the next two days to fly alongside Complexity, Liquid, Bad News Bears, and oNe to Bucharest to right for a spot at the PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

All of the matches will be single elimination brawls (except the third-place decider taking place tomorrow), so there's no room for mistakes as the best of NA fight for their last chance to earn a spot in Antwerp.
