The BLAST Paris Major, the last Valve-sponsored event for CS:GO, will take place in May and the team list will be finalized in April. There are 56 CS:GO teams from all over the world trying to qualify for the $1.25 million tournament, but only 24 squads will earn a spot at the Paris Major.
Europe will fill most of the slots as the region has been granted 17 spots at the BLAST Paris Major, while the Americas and Asia complete the list with five and two teams, respectively. The 32 Europe teams fighting for a spot at the Paris Major have been split into two competitions, RMR A and B, while the Americas and Asia have only one tournament.
The Europe RMR A and B and Americas RMR will use the Swiss system format. In this format, teams advance after three wins and are eliminated after three losses. Only advancement and elimination matches are played as best-of-threes. BLAST likely chose this format because each one of these tournaments will feature 16 teams.
The Asia RMR, on the other hand, uses a different format. The eight teams will play in a double-elimination bracket, and the top two will make the Major.
