Rainbow Six Siege's EU League 2021 just concluded its second playday and the results are here. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the matches have been held online.

The first match was between G2 Esports and Virtus.Pro, played in Consulate. G2’s attack on the lobby site on round two showed us how teams should coordinate. G2 started their attack from the Admin side, and then, they covered every single rotation by holding angles in Meeting, Consul, Admin, and Spiral. This cornered V.P in one place and allowed G2 to get the kills and take site control with ease.

G2’s Ben "CTZN" McMillan and Jake “Virtue” Grannan clutched a 2v4 situation on round seven by making some insane plays. The clutch started with Virtue getting a C4 kill followed by a quick kill into the Lobby. Then, CTZN was left in Consul to clutch a 1v2 situation, which he was able to pull off as V.P tried to enter through the Piano. CTZN got the double kill and won the round for G2. G2 won the game with a 7-4 scoreline. CTZN and Virtue carried G2 with respective 16 and 15 kills.

The second match was between BDS Esport and Team Empire, played in Villa. Both teams, especially BDS, avoid this map as they’ve never practiced in it. BDS began strong on the defense with Stéphane "Shaiiko" Lebleu getting a triple kill in Aviator by just holding an angle into Study. BDS used strategies revolving around operators that have a shield to waste Empire’s utility and time. The shield-based operators worked and led BDS to a 4-2 scoreline in the first half.

After the side switch, Empire struggled to counter BDS, now on the attack, which rewarded BDS several rounds. BDS’ Adrien “RaFaLe” Rutik managed to clutch a 1v2 post-plant on the final round. When Empire tried to kill RaFaLe in the Classical hallway, RaFaLe fought back skillfully and got a double kill instead. BDS won the match with a 7-3 scoreline.
