The Rainbow Six Siege Finals will take place at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil and will welcome the largest audience ever seen for a Rainbow Six event.
Ubisoft announced that the eight best Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® teams in the world will compete for the Season 8 Pro League Finals at the Jeunesse Arena, inside the Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil on November 17 and 18, 2018. Two teams from all four regions will be represented during the Finals: Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and Latin America, the latest represented by two brazilian teams: FaZe Clan and Immortals. Those two teams are the hope of the local fans since the actual Pro League Champions, Team Liquid, took the 5th spot this season and did not qualify for the Finals. In Rio, the teams will compete for a cashprize of $275,000.
You will be able to follow the competion live on November 17 and 18 on Twitch and YouTube. During the event, Ubisoft will also be announcing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 updates and news about the Six Invitational 2019.
Here is complete list of the eight teams qualified and that will compete in the Quarter Finals on November 17th:
1st Quater Finals :
FAZE CLAN: Just like Season 7, they are the favorites from the LATAM region. They will try to follow the steps of Team Liquid and compete in the Grand Finals in front of their audience.
MOCK-IT: The new German/Swiss line up, previously known as Orgless will be representing Europe as underdogs.
2nd Quater Finals :
NORA RENGO: The Japonese team beat FNATIC by a large margen during the qualifiers and it is no surprise that they are in the Pro League Finals.
ROGUE: They have been to all of the Pro League Finals and Majors in 2018 and will be representing North America. Based on some recent roster changes, they are the ones to follows during the Finals to see how it is working out.
3rd Quater Finals :
EVIL GENIUSES: Canadian's team is more than likely aiming for another brutal encounter vs their nemesis G2 Esports.
FNATIC: The australian team is now also a common player and a known face to Pro League Finals. However, they will have to play without Magnet and be at their best to win versus Evil Geniuses, which they have shown to be capable of beating the favorites in the past.
4th Quater Finals:
G2 ESPORTS: The World Cup champions are again the favorites to win it all after beating Evil Geniuses during the Six Major Final in Paris. However, we have seen them fail versus brazilian teams just like in Atlantic City.
IMMORTALS: This surprising Brazilian team will do their best in front of their audience to make it past the quater finals and beat the European favorites, G2 Esports.
Since June 2018, Season 8 started on a new format for the Pro League that was originally announced back in January. Now, every year is made of two seasons that last six months.
