In Europe, four groups consisting of four teams each will compete in Valve's summer Regional Ranking tournament. Due to the lower number of pro teams residing in North America, CS Summit's regional tournament there will be held between two groups of four each. Signups for CS Summit 6's open qualifiers are now officially open in both regions.
The vast majority of teams that are in the running for the upcoming ESL One Rio Major from both regions are set to attend the event, with the notable exception of Astralis. The Danish CSGO team sent out a press release soon after the announcement of CS Summit 6 that it had declined the invitation to participate. The decision comes on the heels of announcements from the teams that both in-game leader Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth were taking leaves of absences from the team.
