This will be part of IEM Fall, with events spread across six regions

Valve has confirmed that IEM has been given the right to hold the remainder of the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournaments for 2021. The agreement includes events across six different regions, which are North America, Europe, CIS, South America, Asia and Oceania.

IEM Fall 2021 will run between 29 September to 10 October, and will involve 6 regions and 60 teams from around the world, with a total bounty of $255,000.

All 6 regions will compete in the last opportunity to qualify for the PGL Major later this year. ESL also confirmed that only Europe will meet at LAN, with the other regions will be played fully online within the respective regions.

Limited number of teams will be playing in each region - North America and CIS events will feature 12 teams each, while South America, Asia and Oceania competitions will consist of four squads each. IEM Fall Europe will be the biggest, with 24 teams playing in the competition.

The events will be as follows:

For the qualifiers, ESL has this to say:

“Teams will be invited based on the Regional Major Rankings for their region. Official and final invites will be issued once teams have submitted their rosters in order to determine RMR points deductions. Once potential RMR points deductions have been made after the lineup deadline the final Regional Major Ranking for the tournament will be used to issue and confirm all invites. Once no further teams can be invited using the Regional Major Rankings, the ESL WR will be used to determine the next in line teams.”

The qualifiers for each regions will start on the following dates:

Europe

  • Open qualifier: Aug. 28 to Sept. 10
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 14 to 16
  • Main event: Sept. 29 to Oct. 10

North America

  • Open qualifier: Sept. 9 to 12
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 18 to 19
  • Main event: Oct. 5 to 10

CIS

  • Open qualifier: Sept. 9 to 12
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 18 to 19
  • Main event: Sept 29. to Oct. 3

Asia

  • Open qualifier: Sept. 9 to 12
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 17 to 19
  • Main event: Oct. 5 to 10

South America

  • Open qualifier: Sept. 9 to 12
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 17 to 19
  • Main event: Sept. 29 to Oct. 3

Oceania

  • Open qualifier: Sept. 9 to 12
  • Closed qualifier: Sept. 17 to 19
  • Main event: Sept. 29 to Oct. 3

There will be a $255,000 total prize pool distributed across all six regions, with Europe taking the largest slice ($105,000), followed by North America ($70,000), and CIS ($50,000). Asia, South America, and Oceania will be playing for $10,000 each. Each region will offer up to 2,500 points in the ranking.

The stakes will be high for this IEM Fall RMR as this will be the second and last RMR events for many regions – only CIS and South America played three RMR events this year. Big name teams like OG, Fnatic and FaZe will definitely need to push harder for them to secure a spot in the PGL Major in Stockholm later in the year.
