Registration for the online qualifiers for PGL Major Antwerp RMR is now open for the APAC region, the organizer has announced.
Next week, PGL will be hosting four sub-regional open qualifiers, with up to 256 teams from each sub-region. The qualifier will reward the winner with a spot in the upcoming PGL Antwerp APAC RMR event in Bucharest, Romania, in April.
Below you can find the details for each open qualifier:
|🇨🇳 China Qualifier (1)||February 26-27||Link (Perfect World)|
|🇦🇺 Oceania Qualifier (1)||March 5-6||Link (FACEIT)|
|🌍 Middle East Qualifier (1)||February 26-27||Link (FACEIT)|
|🌍 Rest of Asia Qualifier (1)||February 26-27||Link (FACEIT)|
The early clashes will utilize single-elimination, best-of-one (BO1) brackets leading up to the quarter-finals and will transition to a double-elimination format once the qualifiers have reached the top-eight matchups. Only the grand final will be played in a best-of-three (BO3) format. Winners of the open brackets will progress to the LAN event held in PGL Studios in Bucharest, Romania.
ARAVT, Do Not Disturb La, and Moon Esports are some teams that have already confirmed their participation in the Rest of Asia qualifier. At the time of writing, there are 16 confirmed teams in the Rest of Asia qualifier to battle it out for a spot in the PGL Major Antwerp – APAC RMR event.
According to TomorrowLAN, The China qualifier will be played out on the Perfect World CS:GO client that requires complete identity verification on the players’ account. The limitation prevents Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau teams and players from competing in the China qualifier; however, they will be able to compete in the Rest of Asia qualifier.
Lynn Vision Gaming (LVG), in the meantime, have registered in the Middle East qualifier as they are currently bootcamping in Serbia. The same is true for Australia’s LookingForOrg, which is presently bootcamping in the United Kingdom and will compete in the aforementioned qualifier against other Middle Eastern teams, including Shuaib “D0cC” Ahmad’s POGGERZ.
