Now that Group Stage ended, R6 esports teams are actively fighting to stay in the competition. The event format is a double-elimination bracket with best-of-three matches, which means lower bracket teams have a long journey.

Team Empire, Oxygen Esports, Team Liquid, MIBR, BDS Esport, Ninjas in Pyjamas, FaZe Clan, and TSM made up the upper bracket.

Today marks the second day of the playoffs and it’s rife with surprises. Amuka Esports owned Parabellum Esports especially beat expectations when they took down G2 Esports 2-0 in the lower bracket. Other Rainbow Six Siege esports giants like DarkZero Esports and Spacestation Gaming also lost in the first round of lower brackets. In the Playoff Stage’s upper bracket, OXG, MIBR, NIP, and FaZe reached the Six Invitational 2021 semifinals. But only NIP and MIBR will see the upper bracket finals.
