Esports tournament organizer, BLAST, has announced the locations for three upcoming Regional Major Rankings (RMR) tournaments for the popular first-person shooter game, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). The organizer revealed that the tournament will for the first time in four years have the RMRs hosted regionally across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

BLAST made the revelation on its Twitter page, outlining the various locations for each regional tournament.

“All roads lead to Paris and for the first time since 2019 all 3 RMRs will be hosted regionally,” BLAST announced.

  • Americas RMR – Monterrey, Mexico (Liga Ace)
  • Asia RMR – Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (MESA)
  • European RMR – Copenhagen, Denmark (BLAST)”

    The RMR tournaments serve as a qualifier for the CS:GO Major, which is the biggest tournament in the game’s competitive scene. The RMRs are divided into three regions, and the top teams from each region will qualify for the upcoming Major.

    According to the announcement from BLAST, the Regional Major Rankings tournament for the Americas region will take place in Monterrey, Mexico, and be organized by Liga Ace Esports. Liga Ace Esports is a reputable tournament organizer in the Latin American market, having held events for a variety of games including VALORANT, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty.

    The RMR for the Asia region will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and be organized by MESA. MESA has a strong reputation for hosting domestic CS:GO competitions, as well as PUBG Mobile tournaments, throughout 2022.

    In September 2022, BLAST announced that they will host the first-ever CS:GO Major in France, scheduled to take place in May 2023. In order for European CS:GO teams to qualify for this major, they will be required to compete in the European Regional Major Rankings tournament, which is to be hosted exclusively by BLAST in Copenhagen. Although the exact dates of the RMR event have not yet been announced, fans can expect fierce competition from top teams from the region as they compete for a spot in the upcoming Major.

    BLAST’s announcement of the RMR locations comes as part of its larger schedule for 2023, which includes plans to host seven large-scale tournaments with a total prize pool of $2.4 million. The tournament organizer’s commitment to the esports community is evident in its ambitious schedule of events and its decision of hosting tournaments in multiple regions.

    Alongside announcing the RMR locations, BLAST also announced that the Paris Major will be announced in English while the show will be presented in both French and English. This news is thrilling for fans as it enables a broader audience to partake in the competition and comprehend the happenings on the screen.

    As of now, the Paris Major is the only confirmed CS:GO Major for the year 2023 but there is a possibility for more events to be announced due to BLAST’s ambitious plans for the future. In the previous year 2022, two major tournaments were held and were organized by PGL and ESL.
