At a loss due to the postponed Six Invitational? Thankfully, the Rainbow Six Siege community has created a new kind of event as a replacement.
The Rainbow Six Memevitational acts as a celebration of all things Siege, bringing together pro players, casters, and content creators to compete in a tournament to raise money for COVID-19 relief.
The event looks to largely throw out all the rules in regards to competitive play too, ensuring there’ll be plenty of messy tactics and absurd plays.
Want the lowdown? Here’s what you need to know about the Rainbow Six Memevitational.
When is the Rainbow Six Siege Memevitational?
The global online event starts on Saturday 20th February and concludes on Sunday 21st February, with Ubisoft set to unveil new DLC Operation Crimson Heist following the finals.
The event starts with the Group stage consisting of two groups of five teams, where they’ll compete in best-of-three matches. The top two from each group advance to the Playoffs.
What are the teams and groups?
The roster of each team is largely divided by region, consisting of one pro player, one pro coach or analyst, one caster, one content creator, and one wildcard choice.
Teams have been split between two groups named EU But Not Really and Too Much Clout, shown in the image below.
