Rainbow Six Siege APAC 2021 Playoffs has finished its second game in the lower brackets. The team that gets first and second place will qualify for the Six August 2021 Major, which is held in Mexico. All these matches are being played online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Pittsburgh Knights and CYCLOPS Athlete Gaming have already qualified by taking the first spots in their respective APAC North/South Leagues.

Invictus Gaming vs. FAV gaming

The match between these two teams started on Consulate, which is an attacker-sided map. Invictus started on defense and they played a very roam-heavy playstyle. FAV was unable to contest their opponents' roams and aggressive plays, which lost them four rounds. The first half resulted in a 4-2 scoreline in favor of Invictus. FAV failed to find an opening after the side switch, letting their opponents win the game with a 7-4 scoreline.

The second map was played on Clubhouse, which is a map that demands coordination. Invictus is a really strategy-oriented team and this gave them the upper hand on Clubhouse. The Montagne ban from FAV was a counter against a player from Invictus. The Montagne player usually walks up garage stairs and pressures the defenders without much effort. Invictus started the first half on defense and took five rounds, which resulted in the first half being a 5-1 split. Invictus carried over their momentum to the second half and won the match with a 7-2 scoreline.

This loss for FAV knocked them out of the playoffs. On the other hand, Invictus will move forward in the lower bracket run.

QConfirm vs. Fnatic

The first map was played on Chalet, which is an attacker-sided map. QC started the first half on attack, winning five rounds. This resulted in the first half being a 5-1 split. Usually, teams get demoralized after losing many rounds. But Fnatic turned it around and won every single attack round, which made them win the first map with a 7-5 scoreline.

The second map played on Coastline and went exactly the same as the first map, in which QC started with a 5-1 lead. Then, Fnatic followed it by winning the game with a 7-5 scoreline.
