Perfect World announce PWL CS:GO Season 1 as the first Asian RMR Event of 2021

by Juandi

The first RMR event for 2021 presented by Perfect World will take place from April 14 to May 3. The 8-team tournament will bring together the best teams across Asia to compete for a lion’s share of US$100,000 prize pool and 4,800 RMR points.

PWL CS:GO Season 1 will be hosted by Perfect World, a Chinese-based game publisher that distributes CS:GO in the Mainland China area. Their most recent big event, Perfect World Asia League (PAL) Fall 2020, took place in September last year and saw ViCi best TIGER (now Renewal) in the finals to take home the similar US$100,000 prize pool.

It is confirmed that TYLOO, ViCi Gaming, Renewal, and Invictus Gaming have accepted direct invites to the event – with the last four slots to be determined by two open qualifiers scheduled from April 14 to May 3. Other than the US$100,000 prize pool on the table, the top four finishers will receive RMR Points that will count towards their chances to represent Asia at PGL Major Stockholm 2021, which is scheduled for October 23-November 7 later this year.
