Europe’s top teams came out of the gate ready to roll in the region’s ESL Road to Rio event. While some teams majorly underperformed, Europe generally showed fans how consistent the region actually is.

Here are the current rankings for Valve’s first-ever Regional Major CSGO tournament. We’ve included any points teams gained from their placing at StarLadder Berlin Major just shy of a year ago, so these standings are an overall look at who has the lead going into CSGO’s second Regional Major tournament. A breakdown of where the points came from will also be included.

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: one in the Spring, one in the Summer and one in the Fall. Valve will sponsor the May and Fall Regional Major Ranking series. Each of those events will feature a prize pool of RM 1.1 million ($255,000), divided across each region based on the number of Legends and Challengers invitations available for that region.
