Giants Gaming have picked up a second Rainbow Six Siege team alongside their Spanish roster.

'Looking for Org', formerly LeStream Esports, have been signed to Giants ahead of the Six Major Raleigh. The roster contains Théophile "Hicks" Dupont, Maurice "AceeZ" Erkenlenz, Leo "Alphama" Robine, Lukas "korey" Zwingmann and captain Valentin "risze" Liradelfo. Alongside the team will be coach Laurent "Crapelle" Patriarche and manager Robin "Robz" Planus.

The core of AceeZ, risze and Hicks were formerly part of Millenium together in Season 8. The team, under LeStream the following Season, qualified for the Major. After a month without Aleksi "UUNO" Työppönen, who left for G2 Esports, and korey joining in his place, the team was dropped.

The 'old' Giants team has been renamed as Giants Spain after two months as the sole roster. At DreamHack Valencia 2019, Giants finished 13th-16th after making the main event through the BYOC, while Looking for Org had made the final after a direct invite.

Fans will not have to wait long to see the team compete on LAN. 12th August is the first day of the Six Major Raleigh and will be the debut of the new roster in Giants jerseys. Another 'new team' will attend in the form of MiBR, who recently rebranded after being sold by Immortals and added a coach.

Their opening match in Group C is against Spacestation Gaming, with Evil Geniuses or Ninjas in Pyjamas being their next opponent. There could be opportunity for revenge against a former teammate, UUNO, as the #1 and #2 Group B and C teams will meet in the playoffs.

Only one of Giants' rosters is competing in the Major, with the Spanish division's calendar looking blank for the future. It is unknown what will happen if both teams seek to attend or qualify for the same event.
