Dreamhack Rio 2019 features a competition for Rainbow Six Siege with four professional teams participating. Scheduled for April 19 to April 21, the tournament offers prize pool of at least $13,000.

Aside from the four teams who received a slot through a closed qualifier, two all-female teams have qualified through the Female Qualifier.

The first is Brazilian Crusaders e-Sports. Composed of members Myss1, Lara, Ch3rn4, Russa, Thaii, and Naty, the team is considered as one of the world’s most successful all-female Siege teams. While the team has yet to play against Pro League teams in a tournament, the Brazilian Crusaders believe that they will be able to show good games at the upcoming Dreamhack Rio. In an interview with SiegeGG, team captain Myss1 said all-female teams became popular in Latin America after Ubisoft LATAM started to act in response to all-female teams in amateur competitions.

The second team is Resilience e-Sports, and is composed of PinkSouls, Dooxy, Brun4, Mand, and RedBrisa. The team is coached by DR1CO. So far the team has shown improvement, as it obtained a slot in the tournament after beating out Team Brave Soldiers and ReD DevilS eSports Female during the qualifiers.

The four Pro League teams include Team Liquid, which is playing its first LAN tournament in its home region in 19 months. Team Liquid is widely considered as the favorite heading into the tournament. The second is FaZe Clan, which had an impressive showing in 2018 but has lately appeared to have dropped off in terms of form. Third is Immortals, which remains to be one of the LATAM region’s top teams. Immortals has qualified in various tournaments including the Season 8 Finals, Paris Major, and even the Six Invitational 2019. However, the team has to show success in a LAN environment. The team hopes to change all that for Dreamhack Rio 2019.

Finally there is Black Dragons e-Sports, which continues to struggle and settle for third-place finishes back in 2018.

Aside from the six teams mentioned, two other teams are expected to join and need to go through the BYOC Qualifier. This qualifier is expected to be conducted one the first day with teams like paiN Gaming and Ninjas in Pyjamas possibly making an appearance.

The tournament follows a single elimination best-of three format.

Games will be streamed through the Official Twitch and YouTube accounts of Rainbow6BR.
