Rainbow Six Siege's APAC North Division just concluded its first playday and the results are here. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. That said, players have commented that the matches played online could have different outcomes if they were played out on LAN due to hit registration and other issues.

All the matches played out yesterday were super tight in terms of score. The most anticipated match of the day was between Fnatic and Giants Gaming, which was played on the Clubhouse map. Giants Gaming came out victorious with a 7-5 lead in the match. Giants Gaming are known as the gatekeepers of APAC, and have dominated throughout the APAC league. Despite the results, Fnatic has shown to be amazing in LAN events, destroying teams like G2, EG, and others. Giants Gaming has had no such luck, even after qualifying for majors or minors.

One of the most surprising match ups from yesterday was between QConfirm and Nora-Rengo. The match was played on the reworked Oregon map, and it surprisingly went 7-5 in the favor of QConfirm. Sillapakorn "Lycolis" Dokmaikhaw was the backbone for QConfirm, carrying the team with 14 kills while playing Thermite.

Another impressive match was between Talon Esports and Cloud 9, who are known to be the top two teams in the Korean division. Their match was played on the Kafe Dostoyevsky map, and Cloud 9 won the match 7-5. While it seemed to be a slow match, it showed how improved Cloud 9 has become since their slump last season. Sihun “Nova.C9” Lee had some amazing plays, and led Cloud9 to victory as the team’s hard support.

The most surprising thing to see was teams like Fnatic, Xavier, and Nora-Rengo getting knocked out in the preliminary rounds. Day 2 of the qualifiers will be even more interesting to watch and maybe we will see a new champion rise up for the APAC region. You can watch all the streams on Twitch or YouTube.
