PGL Major Copenhagen Participants

PGL Major Copenhagen

All of the RMRs for PGL Major Copenhagen are finally over, which means that we can take a look at the 24 teams who will compete in it.

With $1.25 million in prize money and a reward of $500.000 for the winner, the Copenhagen Major is guaranteed to be an exciting CS2 event to watch. It’s the first Major of the new year and the prestige that comes with winning it is enormous.

European RMR A Winners

The first European RMR for the Copenhagen Major was full of surprises. Team Falcons, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Fnatic failed to qualify. Meanwhile, teams like AMKAL ESPORTS, SAW, and KOI performed really well and will compete in Denmark later this month.

Here is the complete list of teams that were successful in this RMR:

  • G2 Esports
  • Natus Vincere
  • FaZe Clan
  • KOI
  • Eternal Fire
  • SAW

In addition to these eight teams, 9Pandas also qualified by winning the Decider Brackets.

European RMR B Winners

In the second European RMR, Astralis, GamerLegion, OG, Monte, and Preasy Esport were among the teams that failed to qualify for the Copenhagen Major.

Here’s a complete list of the teams that did qualify:

  • MOUZ
  • Cloud9
  • Team Vitality
  • Team Spirit
  • Apeks
  • ENCE
  • Heroic

It’s quite remarkable to see Heroic doing reasonably well after getting completely destroyed at the end of last year.

What was surprising to see, apart from the failure registered by Astralis, was the defeats suffered by Team Vitality and Team Spirit. Both of them were expected to end the tournament with a perfect record. But they ended up losing against Cloud9 and MOUZ respectively.

American RMR Winners

The American RMR left many CS2 fans speechless. Team Liquid and M80 failed to qualify for the Major, while Legacy and paiN Gaming were successful.

Here is the complete list of qualified teams:

  • FURIA Esports
  • Imperial Esports
  • paiN Gaming
  • Complexity
  • Legacy

Finally, it seems that Marcelo “coldzera” David has found a team he can succeed with. It’s been a long time since we saw him at a CS2 Major. It happened in 2022, when he competed in the IEM Rio Major, where he unfortunately finished 23rd – 24th.

Asia-Pacific RMR Winners

The Asia-Pacific RMR did not attract much attention, but it’s still good to know who qualified for the Copenhagen Major from this part of the world.

  • The MongolZ
  • Lynn Vision Gaming

The two big favorites were successful and will compete in Denmark in just two weeks.
