At the European qualifiers, half of the teams will qualify for the main event in Antwerp. Group A has four Legends spots available, while Group B got three! Furthermore, the groups got four/five Challenger and Contender spots that can be earned by the teams. We will now continue with day 1 of the European RMR in Group A!
Europe RMR Group A - Day 1
Day 1 of the European RMR started off with 16 bo1 matchups and most of the favorites were able to secure two wins. Unbeaten on the first four spots are currently Heroic, NAVI, FaZe, and BIG. Followed by eight teams who were starting into day 2 with a tie in maps. Those are: OG, Outsiders (Virtus.Pro lineup), Vitality, Fnatic, SAW, Eternal Fire, forZe and MOUZ. For all of these, it will be important to start off day two with a win, in order to not play against elimination early.
The remaining four teams will already face the threat of elimination on day two. Dignitas, GamerLegion, QUAZAR and Unique lost both opening matches and will have a hard time qualifying for the Major.
Europe RMR Group A - Day 2
The second matchday of the European RMR concluded. With Heroic and BIG two teams already managed to qualify for the Major as Legends. While the Danes won out over NAVI, BIG Clan managed to beat FaZe Clan in their third game. For both teams quite impressive victories and quite a statement going into the PGL Major in Antwerp.
On the other end of the table two teams already need to pack their stuff after the second day of play. GamerLegion and QUAZAR lost their duels against Dignitas and Unique and are out of the RMR event and with that also the Major cycle for Antwerp!
Apart from a favorite win of Vitality against Eternal Fire, MOUZ pulled off an upset against Outsiders on Inferno! Furthermore forZe and SAW managed to surprise with wins over OG and fnatic and one of the two teams will qualify for the Major in Antwerp tomorrow, as they face each other! All 1:2 teams will play against elimination tomorrow - you can see who we're talking about below in the table!
Europe RMR Group A - Day 3
Today, six more matches took place in group A of the European RMR, all of which were deciding games!

The day started with a (for OG) heartbreaking 0:2 loss against Eternal Fire. The Turkish star team managed to win out both maps with 16:14 and qualified as Contenders. The second match of the day took place between Vitality and MOUZ. The game was entertaining and Vitality managed to win it out with a 2:1 on Nuke, Dust2, and Mirage at the end. Especially on Dust2 MOUZ was close to winning out the series 2:0 and qualifying for the Major.
The final two games of the day were a deciding one for the Legends Status between forZe and NAVI, in which the star ensemble around s1mple managed to win out quite convincingly! The final game for the last Major spot in Group A of the European RMR was played between SAW and Outsiders (Virtus.Pro).
