BLAST explains and sets dates for the Paris Major qualifiers

With the latest changes related to the next Major of CS:GO It is important that BLAST, organizer of the event, explain how this new format works. At first we already highlighted and mentioned the news regarding the latest editions, but more information appears about all these regional qualifiers. If it was already difficult to get to the big appointment of the shooter, the new and complex path does not facilitate access to the participating teams. The Paris Major It promises to be a very special event and everyone wants to be in it, but to do so they will have to pass the qualifiers that we explain below.

BLASTthrough a video, has explained the new operation of all the qualifiers prior to the great event of the CS:GO. The path of the open and closed qualifiers will begin in mid/end of February while the final ones RMRs Regionals will be held from April 3 to 12. The latter have already been confirmed to take place in three different locations for each of the participating regions. The teams that reached the Legends Stage of the last Major in Rio de Janeiro will be directly invited to their RMR regional. This benefits 14 European organizations and 2 from America. The others will have to overcome a complicated path that we are now explaining thanks to the audiovisual piece provided by BLAST.
