Some interesting facts

Despite the Astralis failing to make it to the Major, Denmark remains on top in Rio. The country has three fewer representatives than it had at PGL Antwerp, but the Scandinavian country remains at the top of the ranking with 17 players.

They're shortly followed by Russia and host nation Brazil (15).

IEM Rio will be a historic low for French players, teams, and fans. The country will only have two representatives at the CSGO Major, with Belgian Gamerlegion player Nicolas โ€œKeozโ€ Dgus being an honorary third.
