PGL Antwerp Major Europe RMR Group B has ended, bringing an end to two weeks of qualifiers for the Major. 24 teams have been decided that’ll battle it out for a $1 million prize pool starting 9th May with the New Challengers Stage in Antwerp.

8 Teams will skip the first stage as they directly qualified for the Legends stage from the RMRs as the remaining 16 will battle it out for 8 more spots in the New Legends Stage.

The ordeal started with the Americas RMR starting off first, which included the North American and South American Region and had 6 spots up for grabs . This was followed by the Asia Pacific RMR, which had 2 contender spots on the line.

The best of the lot, the European RMR was saved for last as there were 16 European spots to play for. The European RMR was divided into Group A and B with 8 teams qualifying for the Major from each group.

The Americas RMR was filled with amazing storylines, as well as heartbreak for teams. The best of the lot would be a first Major for an Argentinian team in the form of 9z, who beat paiN Gaming to qualify for PGL Antwerp.

Fallen’s Last Dance – Imperial, a team which was criticized heavily for relying on the old guard of fallen, fer and fnx qualified for the Major as well, over teams like Evil Geniuses and 00Nation. EG missed out on the Major, after rebuilding their roster for 2022 as they lost to paiN, Liquid and 9z.

The Asia Pacific RMR, saw a Mongolian team – IHC Gaming qualify for the Major. This would be the first representation of a 5 man Mongolian squad at a CSGO Major. The second spot was taken over by Renegades, after beating Tyloo in an epic comeback.

The European RMR had quite a few upsets, with teams like MOUZ, OG and fnatic missing out on a spot. OG miss their 2nd straight while fnatic miss their 3rd straight major. Turkish superteam, Eternal Fire managed to qualify to become the first Turkish team since Faceit London 2018 to play at a Major.

 In the second group, things went slightly more the way they were expected, even though there were upsets in the form of G2 losing to Anonymo. The international roster did eventually qualify, winning all their games from there on out.

Cloud9 will be returning to CSGO with the signing of the ex-Gambit roster, and make their appearance at their first CSGO Major since IEM Katowice 2019. They qualified as Legends from group B, meaning they will skip the first stage of the Major.
