Valve has identified CS:GO teams from Kazakhstan to the Asian region

Before that, they performed in the CIS region.

  • The fact that Kazakhstan’s CS:GO teams from 2023 will play in the Asian region became known after Valve published the regional lists of teams.
  • Among others, the Asian region included the AVANGAR team, which successfully competed in 2018-2019.
  • Valve has not yet clarified the details of this change. In particular, it is unclear whether teams from Kazakhstan will be able to apply to other regions, such as Europe.
  • Earlier, Valve presented an updated system of invitations to RMR tournaments on CS:GO based on the rating. The company also published a table of the best teams at the end of 2022. Heroic was the leader of the ranking, G2 Esports came in second place, and Russian Outsiders closed the top three.
