The first ever Rainbow Six DreamHack minor was held last weekend in Austin, Texas. Some of the biggest teams from the Rainbow Six pro scene came to fight for the $50.000 cashprize. Here is how the competition went for the three French teams involved, including Millenium, who ended up lifting the trophy.

 Millenium Team

Two weeks after the Pro League finals in Atlantic City, the Millenium roster came back to the United States and more precisely to Austin for DreamHack. Liven and his teammates had been very convincing in Atlantic City and started off perfectly in Austin by winning both of their games 2-0 against SpaceStation and 12Knights, which allowed them to top their group. The next day saw the face and beat both Chaos in the quarter-finals and Rogue in the semi-finals. Having not lost a map in the whole tournament, the only team standing between Millenium and the trophy was the crowd favourite and finalist of the 2018 Invitational, Evil Geniuses. The final was a thrilling game of Siege in which EG had 6 seperate match points but could not finish things off against a mentally strong Millenium team which ended up deservedly winning the trophy on the last overtime point of the third map.

Team Vitality 

Following a disappointing season of Pro League for Team Vitality who did not make the finals in Atlantic City, the players arrived in Austin hoping to win the trophy in order to prove they were still one of the top teams in the world. ZephiR and his mates were convincing in the group stage by winning against both beastCoast and SiNister, therefore taking the first seed of their group. They started off the second day with a quarter final against Evil Geniuses. The game did not start well for the French team as they got dominated on Kafe (2-5). They fought well on Chalet, but they did not live up to their ambition as they lost the map 5-6 and were therefore sent home early by the American team.

Mock-it

Following mixed results in the last season of Pro League, Mock-it arrived in Texas hoping to show they were a team to look out for in the next season of Pro League. It did not start well at all for panix and his mates as they lost their first group stage matchup to Motiv8 Gaming (1-5 / 2-5) which meant they were one defeat away from being eliminated. The task was made even more difficult by the loss of Evil Geniuses to underdogs Disrupt Gaming, which meant Mock-it had to face the finalists of the Six Invitational next. Despite putting up a good fight, the French team was sent home by Canadian and his teammates as the latter won the game 2-0 (5-3/6-5).
