  2. The Rio Major will take place in November and, as the only Major of 2020, the prize pool will be $2,000,000. It will have been more than a year since the last Major. To ensure that the Rio Major features the top teams in the world, we will require that current Legends and Challengers demonstrate that they are still in top form. Due to the difficulty in travel for the foreseeable future, we’re going to do that regionally. Regional Major Rankings All teams participating in the November Rio Major will earn their invites through regional rankings, which will be updated based on their performance in upcoming Regional Major Ranking competitions. Teams competing in an RMR series will receive Major Ranking points based on their placement. We will have more details on the point distribution once we have a final list of the Major Ranking competitions between now and the Rio Major. The first RMR series will be in May, and we intend to have one more RMR series in the Fall. Additionally, if tournament organizers are interested in modifying their previously planned 2020 events to be RMR competitions, they should reach out to us. For us to consider an event for Major ranking, it must invite the top RMR teams in the region and hold qualifiers for the remainder. The event can be of any format, any prize pool, any duration, and either online, LAN, or a combination of the two. November Rio Invitations 24 teams will be invited to the November Rio Major from six different regions based on their Regional Major Ranking. In total, there are 8 Legend, 8 Challenger, and 8 Contender invitations available. Each region will be allocated invites to the Major based on that region’s performance in the preceding Major. Based on the results of the 2019 Berlin Major, the invitations for each region are as follows: November Rio Invitation Distribution EUR CIS NA SA AS OC Legends 3 2 3* 0 0 0 Challengers (formerly Returning Challengers) 5 1 2* 0 0 0 Contenders (formerly New Challengers) 2 2 1 1 1 1 Total Invitations 10 5 6 1 1 1 *Teams currently unable to travel to their native region are invited to defend their invitations in the region where they are currently situated. The 2020 May RMR Series The first series of these RMR competitions will be in May and will be hosted by ESL. All teams that would have been invited to the May Rio Major or the May Rio Minors will be invited to compete for position in their region. Current Legends and Challengers will start with some Regional Major Ranking points. FAQ Q. How are the Regional Major Rankings calculated? The Regional Major Rankings will be points-based, and the value of events closer to the Major will be greater than earlier events. However, we won’t have a detailed breakdown before we’ve finalized the RMR events for the year. Q. Will there be Minors for the November Rio Major? There will be no Minors ahead of the November Rio Major. Regional Major Rankings will be used to determine all 24 teams participating in the November Rio Major. There will not be a separate path for teams to qualify. Q. What happens to teams who were invited to the May Minors? For the first Regional Major Ranking series in May, teams qualified for the May Minors (and/or qualifiers for those Minors) will be invited to participate in their respective region’s competition. For later RMR competitions, participants will be invited based on their regional ranking, with additional slots available to teams determined by qualifiers. Q. What happens to the Minor prize pool? Valve will sponsor the May and Fall Regional Major Ranking series. Each of those events will feature a prize pool of $255,000, divided across each region based on the number of Legends and Challengers invitations available for that region. The minimum prize pool in a region will be $10,000. Q. What determines what region a team competes in? Given the circumstances, teams’ regions are determined by their current location. Q. What happens if a team changes region? Regional Major Rankings only represents a team’s performance relative to other teams in the region. Therefore, any region change by a team will result in a reset of the team’s Major Ranking points. Q. Can a team change their roster? Teams can change up to two members of their roster in the lead up to an event at a cost of 20% of the team’s points, per player. They can adjust their roster prior to the roster lock for each Regional Major Ranking competition. View the full article

    CS:GO Blog Squelching the Noise

    We take feedback about communication abuse seriously, and in the past we’ve shipped settings that let customers control their exposure to other players’ avatars, names, and voice/text chat. (You can find these in Settings->Game->Communication and on the scoreboard). The settings are useful, but they have the downside of squelching communication indiscriminately. So we’ve been working on a new system that will work more precisely. When the new system is fully deployed, players will receive a warning if they receive significantly more abuse reports than other players. If they ignore that feedback and continue to receive abuse reports, they’ll receive a penalty: they will be muted by all other players by default. This ‘default mute’ state will remain until the player earns enough XP to remove the penalty, but other players can choose to manually unmute the user (as they would any other muted player). Because the new system is driven by reports, it lets players establish their own standards for communication and ensure that their fellow players receive anonymous feedback when they’re out of line. We’ve already started tracking players’ reports with the new system, and you can help us by getting into the habit of reporting abusive players for ‘Abusive Communications or Profile’ when you come across them. Note that reports are weighted higher for players that play more and/or report less frequently, so accounts that generate no XP and/or spam reports will have little to no impact. As always, you can send feedback and/or concerns to [email protected] View the full article

  23. A quick update on our plans for 2020 Majors: Some of the feedback we’ve received in response to our blog post “Keeping Things Competitive” from teams and tournament organizers is that the business of leagues (specifically, shared ownership of leagues between TOs and teams) does not create new conflicts of interest, because similar arrangements have existed in the past and those conflicts of interest are not significant. While we can point to clear cases where relationships between teams and TOs have generated distrust in the community, we agree that our near-term priority should be collecting more data and requiring more transparency so that conflicts of interest can be properly evaluated. Therefore, for 2020, teams and players registering for the Majors will be required to publicly disclose their business relationships with other participants and/or the tournament organizer, so that public conversations can be had about the value that leagues and other entanglements offer versus the risk that they pose. Failure to disclose any business with the TO or other participants will likely result in disqualification. We do not intend to add any other requirements for participation in (or hosting of) 2020 Major Championships. View the full article

    CS:GO Blog Key Change

    Starting today, CS:GO container keys purchased in-game can no longer leave the purchasing account. That is, they cannot be sold on the Steam Community Market or traded. Pre-existing CS:GO container keys are unaffected–those keys can still be sold on the Steam Community Market and traded. Why make this change? In the past, most key trades we observed were between legitimate customers. However, worldwide fraud networks have recently shifted to using CS:GO keys to liquidate their gains. At this point, nearly all key purchases that end up being traded or sold on the marketplace are believed to be fraud-sourced. As a result we have decided that newly purchased keys will not be tradeable or marketable. For the vast majority of CS:GO users who buy keys to open containers, nothing changes; keys can still be purchased to open containers in their inventory. They simply can no longer be traded or transacted on the Steam Community Market. Unfortunately this change will impact some legitimate users, but combating fraud is something we continue to prioritize across Steam and our products. If you have feedback or concerns about this change feel free to email us at CSGOTeamFeedback [at] valvesoftware.com with the subject “Key Restriction”. View the full article
