This will be a tournament that allows anyone in FK to join and enjoy a few competitive but good-natured games of Rainbow Six Siege as we enter into Year 5, Season 2.
The format of the competition will depend on how many teams sign up.
2 Teams = A Best of 5 Showmatch, 1 day affair.
3 Teams = A weekend round-robin of Best Of 1’s, followed by a Best Of 3 Grand final.
4+ Teams = A long-form tournament which will consist of a few weeks of round-robin Best of 3 matches, then a playoffs/finals weekend.
Siege-Specific Ruleset can be found here: Rules
All matches involving EU teams will take place on EU-West servers, unless a fully NA team signs up. In that scenario, a coin toss will be conducted to determine which server is played on, EU West or NA East. In the case of a Best of 3 or 5, the host server will rotate each map. Ace and Melusi will be quarantined since they have not been vetted as competitively viable, but that means that Oryx and Iana are fine to use! Due to ongoing issues with clash's shield glitching, Clash will also be quarantined for this event.
Games will be played at 5pm BST (UTC + 1) on Saturdays, starting from the 27th of June. There will be a captains meeting around 10 minutes prior to kick-off to talk through any events or things to take note of at 4.50pm on matchdays.
When signing up, your Uplay name is required so that we can seed the tournament, and have an indicator in the case of 4+ teams signing up of what games are likely to be the most competitive. If you do not have a team, that is completely fine, you have time to form one, or to register as an individual whom we can try and fit with a team.
