Let the games begin | PGL Major Copenhagen Americas RMR Viewer Guide

The final hurdle before the Major.

The PGL Major Copenhagen Americas RMR starts today with Complexity v. Elevate and FURIA v. Nouns kicking off the event at 02:00PM. The rest of the day will be filled with another six BO1s, with the last two starting at 05:00PM.

The 16 American teams, eight from North America, seven from Brazil, and one from Argentina, will battle for five spots in the first CS2 Major in Denmark, with one of those spots being in the advanced Elimination stage, the former Legends stage.


The tournament will follow the usual Swiss System Format for 16 teams, which means all matches, excluding the elimination and qualification matches, are BO1s, with the qualifying or eliminating series being BO3s. Just like the previous RMR events, this one uses the Buchholz system to determine seeding.

The major change this time around is that there won't be anyone exiting the tournament with a 0-3 record, because two losses will result in elimination already. Another important aspect that is different from other Major cycles is that the team that advances to the Elimination stage will be decided not through its performance in the RMR but through the Valve Ranking, with the team with the higher seed that qualified skipping the Opening stage (former Contenders stage). This means a team can end with a 3-1 record and qualify for the Elimination stage over the 3-0 teams.
