Rainbow Six Siege's European Mini Major Stage 2 concluded its final game for the EU Mini Major, and the results are here. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. The European Mini Major had some really exciting matches to watch this week, with all the matches played as a best of five format. We got to see a variety of maps in play, teaching us new strategies that can be implemented into our own games.

The grand finals for the EU Mini Major was a rematch between Team Empire and BDS, but with one difference. This time the game was a best of five series. Since Empire qualified for the finals through the upper brackets, Empire had a map advantage over BDS.

The first map was played on Villa, which is a defender-sided map. It was pretty surprising to see both teams keep Villa unbanned, due to the fact that both teams haven’t had the best luck when it comes to the map. Empire’s first attack round started off flawless with Danil "JoyStiCK" Gabov from Empire getting the opening kill on Jager, who was playing the red stairs after Empire had the control of master bedroom site. Empire immediately started to spread out towards study which helped the team cut off multiple rotations into Aviator site and led to a flawless round. BDS was pretty unlucky on round two as Adrien "RaFaLe" Rutik disconnected mid round, which made it harder for BDS to defend the site, but BDS managed to waste Empire’s time and take the round despite all the bad luck.

Olivier "Renshiro" Vandroux stepped up for BDS on round four as he managed to get a quad kill in Dining playing Goyo. The first half ended with Empire leading 4-2 on attack, which is pretty impressive, but not surprising as BDS isn’t the best when it comes to playing Villa. BDS on attack was terrible, as the team was unable to counter Empire’s setup, even though it wasn’t really that different from what you see in other higher level ranked strategies. Empire managed to take Villa with a 7-3 scoreline. While Renshiro had some impressive performances for BDS, it didn’t matter as BDS as a team was unable to take down Empire’s strategies.

The next map was the most important map in the series for BDS, as Empire had a two map advantage. If BDS lost the second map, it would mean Empire claimed victory for the best of five series.

The second map was played on Coastline, which is an attacker-sided map. The Nomad ban from Empire was surprising, but it was to prevent BDS from playing super aggressively. The first round for BDS was played out well, but Empire was able to frag their way through and take the win. The second round was completely one sided, as Empire took the hookah attack without losing a single player. Empire's attack strategy completely shut off BDS' rotations and Empire even perfectly executed on site.

Renshiro almost clutched a 1v4 situation on Kitchen site, as he started out by peeking out of main lobby door and getting the following kills on the planter by running outside after the plant went down. The only issue was BDS had no information on the final player from Empire, which made it impossible for Renshiro to clutch the round. Team Empire managed to finish the first half with a 5-1 scoreline, which is impressive considering BDS is a frag-heavy team.

BDS had already lost hope by the end of the map, as BDS was at a 1-5 disadvantage. Empire’s defense on round eight was pretty normal, but the Clash pick from Empire threw BDS off and made BDS panic even more. The Clash player in the dying seconds of the eighth round unequipped his shield and prefired on the opponent while doing a 360. Empire won the series by winning Coastline with a 7-2 scoreline. It was pretty nice seeing Empire getting out of their slump to win the mini major.
