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.
The next Major and the first Major in 2023 will be held in Paris in May. The last CS:GO major tournament was held in Rio de Janeiro and ended with the victory of the Russian team Outsiders.
