Astralis will skip cs_summit 6 on CS: GO for Europe. The sports director of the team, Casper Hvidt, said that this is due to the Regional Major Ranking scoring system – the team may lose their rating points due to changes in the composition.
In May, Astralis made two replacements in the roster. Marco Snappi Pfeiffer temporarily replaced Andreas Xyp9x Hoyslet, who took a break in performances on the CS: GO competition stage. Jacob JUGI Hansen plays in the Danish roster instead of Lucas gla1ve Rossander – he was sent on vacation for treatment.
According to the rules of the RMR series, leaving each player robs the team of 20% of the points scored. If the updated Astralis roster played on cs_summit 6, then they would have lost 960 points out of 2,400 that they earned during the season. Now the team is in the first place in the ranking: Astralis has 720 points more than G2 Esports, which is in second place.
“Unfortunately, Astralis does not make sense to play in this tournament under the circumstances.”
Cs_summit 6 for Europe will be online from June 22 to July 5. 16 teams will play a prize fund of $ 100 thousand and rating points that Valve and ESL use to distribute slots on the ESL One Rio 2020 major.
