North American League
In a social media post, the team talked about Rainbow Six esports NAL’s details, schedule, Challenger League, and more. For the entire 2021 season, competition is planned to take place offline. Specifically, these events will occur in the Las Vegas Esports Arena.
TSM, Spacestation Gaming, DarkZero Esports, Disrupt Gaming, Soniqs, Oxygen Esports, Mirage, XSET, and beastcoast are the Rainbow Six Siege esports teams representing North America. Stage 1 begins on March 24 at 1 PM PST with a best-of-one round-robin format. To wrap up Stage 1, a Super Week will take place and determine the final standings.
In terms of the rewards, Rainbow Six Siege esports for the North American League boasts a $300 thousand prize pool. This covers all 3 Stages and the R6NAL Finals too. Each Stage gets a $50 thousand prize pool and the finals receive the other $150 thousand prizing.
R6 Siege Esports and Challenger
Regarding the tier 2 competitive scene, Rainbow Six Siege Challenger League takes 16 teams in 2021. This is because of the merger last year that combined Canada and the US into one large region. But as teams acclimate to the changes and the best are revealed, Ubisoft hopes to take the Challenger League to 10 teams. This comes as part of the plan to unite Rainbow Six Siege esports under one North America brand.
As for the in-game meta, Rainbow Six Siege esports will begin seeing the new operators. Reworked Tachanka and recent addition Aruni are enabled for play. Flores, the latest operator to join the lineup, remains disabled for the 2021 season, however. Fans looking forward to the Rainbow Six Siege North American League will want to catch all the R6NAL esports action on Twitch.
