Valve groove CS: GO major too.

Epic canceled all Fortnite face-to-face events in 2021 due to a coronavirus pandemic.

Epic said it has no intention of hosting face-to-face events during 2021, including the Fortnite World Cup. However, we will hold an online contest next year.

“Our intention is to eventually host another global face-to-face tournament, but the priority of such an event is the health and safety of our players and staff,” Epic said in a blog post. ..

“We have no plans to host face-to-face events such as the Fortnite World Cup in 2021 as there are still many uncertainties about what is practical and safe. We will continue to host online competitions throughout 2021. You can go back at some point in the future. “

Meanwhile, Valve has abandoned its plans to host the 2021 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Spring Major tournament.

According to HLTV.org, Valve does not point out the pandemic as the reason for the decision, but it is natural to think that it has a lot to do with the pandemic. In September, Valve announced that it would postpone majors until “Regional Major Ranking (RMR) LAN events can be safely held around the world.” The next CS: GO measure is set for fall 2021, but is subject to change.
