Chronology

General info[edit]

RCG 2020 was the sequel to RCG 2019 following the organizer's pledge to host a similar tournament in case the prize pool gets doubled. The RCG series is organized with the help of eSport.fund.

The tournament featured the best players from the Former Soviet Union, Poland, North America, Latin America, Europe and the rest of the World. A total of 7 regional qualifications were held, with the 16 best players competing in an offline environment in Moscow. However, the ongoing COVID pandemic forced a conversion to an online-only format.
