Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is undoubtedly one of the most popular tactical FPS shooter games in the world. Originally released in 2015 by Ubisoft, R6 continues to remain a giant in the esports scene. Even to this day, seven years after the game’s release, the competitive scene of R6 is still thriving.
Majors are the biggest official Siege events of the year. These events are followed by fans across the globe. Six Berin Major is no exception. It has garnered huge attention from the fans with the participation of the best Rainbow Six Siege teams in the world.
In the absence of TSM and DarkZero, who are the defending Six Invitational and the Six Major champions, Astralis and other North American teams are considered the favorites to win the tournament. However, teams like Wolves (EU) and Faze clan(BR) are certainly capable of bringing the major to their respective regions.
