Ubisoft announced details around the upcoming European program for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Esports, scheduled to start on 22nd June with the first playday of the new European League. The European League represents the highest level of Rainbow Six Siege competitive play in Europe and will feature 10 teams competing online in a Round Robin system for each stage of the league.
For this first 2020 Season, the teams competing in the European League are:
- Team Empire
- Chaos Esports Club
- G2 Esports
- Natus Vincere
- Team Vitality
- BDS Esport
- Team Secret
In December, the European League teams will compete during a special event, the European League Finals, to determine which team truly is the European Champion of the season. Relegation Playoffs will also happen during that event, to determine the final line-up of teams that will compete in the following season of the European League.
Ubisoft is also unveiling a revamped path-to-pro, where the new “European Challenger League”, fueled by the national tournaments across Europe, are the foundation of the ecosystem in the region.
The European Rainbow Six esports scene draws its strength from its pool of highly skilled players across the region. Starting this Season, a victory in a national program will be an entry point to the European Challenger League, as the National Champion will get a slot in the upcoming European Challenger League.
The European Challenger League is then the entry point to the European League, as the top 2 teams from the Challenger League will have a chance to enter the next season of the European League.
The European Challenger League matches will start in the Fall. More information will be communicated later on.
The launch of the new European League alongside updates to the European Challenger League and National tournaments across Europe, as part of the new regionalized ecosystem of Rainbow Six Esports worldwide, represent the biggest evolution for the competitive Rainbow Six Siege landscape in its four-year history. All European programs forge a multi-tiered esports scene, allowing players from all levels and horizons to compete.
Finally, with the 2020 Season, Ubisoft will take a first major step in revamping the viewing experience of its esports leagues and will inaugurate a brand-new and cutting-edge broadcast studio for the European League, European Challenger League et Asia-Pacific North Division matches, broadcast in English. While the matches will be happening online for the pro teams, the crew of talent will gather in France, in the Greater Paris, to cast from this new studio. To name a few additions viewers can expect:
- Premium tools and material to assist the talents while they cast.
- A dedicated analyst area that will allow the crew to provide in-depth information.
- New types of content on top of the action-packed show the pro teams will put on during their matches, such as debates, editorial pieces, interactive content and more.
- Tech improvements backstage, that will ultimately create a more engaging stream for the viewers to watch.
As the health and well-being of our talents, staff and partners is our first priority, the new studio will not be ready for the first playdays of the European League. When the first matches begin on June 22nd, viewers will see a light version of the studio. This will be a temporary solution and as soon as the situation permits, the fully-fledged studio will take over. More information will be shared soon.
