Regional Major Rankings: Rio Major 2020 - CIS
The Regional Major Rankings is the point-based qualification system that was implemented to determine the invites for Rio Major to replace the Minors and the old invite system. Teams earn points towards the RMR through various competitions that will be held in the months leading up to the Major. There will be three RMR Series for CIS: one in the Spring, one in the Summer and one in the Fall.
The top five teams are granted slots at the Rio Major as seen below:
