Beyond the Summit, the organizer of cs_summit six, unveiled the format and invited teams today for what will be the second Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event for the ESL One Rio Major in November.
Cs_summit six Europe and North America will be divided into four phases, kicking off with two qualifier stages with the first starting on June 13. The group stage of the main tournament will be played between June 24 and July 5.
The RMR tournament will use a GSL format with four groups of four teams in Europe and two groups of four in North America, which will transition to a double-elimination playoff bracket later.
In Europe, every team with RMR points already has been invited apart from Astralis, who decided to skip cs_summit six to not lose too many RMR points due to its recent lineup changes.
There are 11 European teams invited for the regional qualifier and another 11 invited for the group stage. Five teams from the open qualifier will complete the regional qualifier stage and five squads from the regional qualifier will make it into the group stage.
As for North America, every team with RMR points apart from Bad News Bears, who disbanded in May, has been invited to the tournament for a total of 10 invites. Three teams from the open qualifier will complete the regional qualifier stage and only three squads from the regional qualifier will play in the group stage.
Here are all of the invited teams for cs_summit six Europe and North America.
