Cs_summit 6 was part of CS publisher Valve's revamped major qualifier series, which is played by region. Those who score the most points in the three-tournament qualifiers will be invited to a major tournament in Rio in November.
The 11 teams with the most points will be invited to the major. The GODSENT represented by Linjala is fourth, ENCE Fifth and Estonian OG 11th. Vitality is the only team to secure a major spot so far. BIG and OG, who left the tournament without points, rose to the major place in one fell swoop.
The third qualifier will be played during the fall. The $ 2 million ESL One Rio Major value tournament is scheduled for November if the corona situation allows. Many believe Major will move from autumn to next spring. In this case, the number of qualifiers may also be increased from the current three. The points situation can be seen below.
