At the same time, the meetings that decide the tournament fate of the teams will be held in the BO3 format. For the draw from the 3rd to 5th rounds, the Buchholz system, which has already been used at PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and previous RMR tournaments, will be used.
Teams that take places from 1st to 3rd will receive Legend status. The teams ranked from the 4th to the 7th lines will receive the Challenger status. At the same time, the team that takes 8th place will receive the status of Contender. The remaining teams will miss PGL Major Antwerp 2022.
