Rainbow Six Siege's EU League 2020 stage two concluded its final playday and the results are here. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. The EU League had some really exciting matches to watch this playday, with all the matches played as a best of one format.

The first match-up of the final playday was played between Virtus.Pro and Team BDS. Both teams decided to duke it out in the final battle on Coastline, which is a super frag-heavy map. BDS already qualified for the majors, so this match didn’t really matter for them. However, V.P had to give a good fight to BDS to ensure their spot in the Majors. The viewers got to see BDS's Stéphane "Shaiiko" Lebleu fragging out V.P as he had nine kills by the fourth round. Shaiiko’s entry picks on V.P were so dominating, V.P had to play with strategies on Coastline.

The first half ended with a 3-3 scoreline, which is not surprising considering both teams are pretty strong when it comes to gunfights. Even though Shaiiko was quieter on defense, BDS was able to win multiple rounds because of their support players. Olivier "Renshiro" Vandroux beautifully clutched a 1v3 situation on the Kitchen defense by rotating between Main Lobby and the Kitchen site, which confused V.P when it came to finding Renshiro’s position. However, V.P was slowly able to turn the tides against BDS as V.P managed to come back all the way to a 6-5 scoreline. However, BDS got serious and took the final round before the match could become a draw, which resulted in a BDS victory with a 7-5 scoreline.

The matchup between G2 Esports and Tempra was the most anticipated match of the final playday on Oregon. This match was pretty important for G2, as it gave them a chance to qualify for the majors if they were able to beat Tempra. Tempra was super dominant on defense, playing operators such as Wamai, Warden, Smoke, Jager, and Maestro to soak attacker utility. Niclas "Pengu" Mouritzen had a fantastic game in terms of fragging as a support player. G2 didn’t seem coordinated during the game, unlike other playdays. This could possibly be due to the pressure of qualifying for the Majors. Tempra had an amazing strategy to counter G2’s Dorms defense. Tempra focused on rushing big window while the Amaru would get into site from Dorms window while one player served as distraction for G2 on the Master Bedroom side. This strategy was perfectly timed and well planned, so props to Tempra’s coaching staff for finding this loophole in G2’s defense. Tempra was able to take the map with a 7-3 scoreline, allowing Tempra to qualify for the Majors.

The best matchup to watch was between Team Empire and Team Secret. This match was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky. Empire was pretty dominant in the first half of Kafe, as Empire pulled out a 4-2 scoreline on defense. Empire tried variations of ranked strategies and made many role changes within the roster to improve coordination. It was pretty surprising to see Empire keep the same momentum on attacks against Secret. Empire was able to frag and clear out utility pretty well against Secret, which allowed Empire to win the match with a 7-4 scoreline. This match also allowed Empire to be one of the four teams that qualified for the majors.

Another good match to watch was between Team Vitality and Chaos. The match was played on Villa, which is a utility-heavy map with the Thatcher ban. This matchup was pretty impressive as Chaos had to play with their coach, as one player had an internet issue. The viewers and analysts thought this would be an easy win for Vitality, but no one expected the coach of Chaos to frag out. Chaos played super aggressively and without a care in the world, as Chaos was already set for relegation. The first half finished with Chaos leading with a 4-2 scoreline on attack, which is impressive. Vitality was pretty determined to win the match and managed to pull out victories on three rounds of their attack phase. This would ultimately be for nothing, as Chaos was able to close the match with a 7-5 scoreline.

The four teams that qualified for the majors are Team BDS, Tempra, Team Empire, and Virtus.Pro.
