CS:GO developer and publisher Valve has announced new rules for inviting teams to the Regional Major Ranking tournaments.
Previously, teams entered the RMRs by direct invitation or through a series of open qualifiers. For 2023 Paris Major, teams who aren't directly invited will get to skip the open qualifiers. Teams who consistently perform well in Valve and third-party events will be directly invited by Valve to a closed qualifier. There they'll compete against teams that enter from an open qualifier.
Valve has promised to reveal more detail in the coming weeks.
