Rainbow Six Siege's European Mini Major Stage 2 concluded its lower brackets finals, 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 three format. We got to see a variety of maps in play, teaching us new strategies that can be implemented into our own games.

The matchup between BDS Esports and Virtus.Pro was the most exciting match of the lower bracket finals. The first map was played on Villa, which is a defender-sided map. Alan “Rask” Ali from V.P started out with an amazing first pick on round one, as he managed to get the entry fragger of BDS, which made it much harder for BDS to take control of the map. This first pick by Rask allowed V.P to take the first round without much hesitation. V.P’s defensive setup on Trophy/Statue consisted of three shields to soak up BDS’s utility. But BDS was able to counter the defensive setups by just pushing the opposite side from where the shields were placed.

Round five was the best example of coordination. During the previous match between V.P and BDS, V.P used an impressive strategy on Dining, which BDS was unable to counter. However, this time BDS countered the setup from V.P by bringing in Amaru, going up the hatch, and getting the plant down in a 5v5 situation. The first half finished with a 3-3 scoreline, which is pretty good for BDS considering the team is pretty weak on Villa.

Stéphane "Shaiiko" Lebleu stepped up for BDS on round eight as he managed to get a triple kill, which prevented V.P from pushing into site. It was pretty surprising to see Shaiiko not get the same number of frags compared to his other games, but the rest of BDS was still on point. The match went all the way to an overtime match point, which was honestly surprising for the viewers. BDS managed to beat V.P on Villa for the first time with an 8-7 scoreline.

The second map was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map. The first defensive round from V.P was played on Gym/Bedroom, probably to surprise BDS into picking an offsite. V.P actually smartly played the Gym round as the team allowed BDS to take control of site and managed to get the C4 kills from bar in the dying seconds to win the round. BDS’ attack on the basement site was almost perfect, as BDS managed to get the hatches and even the Church walls open. With all the hatches and walls open, V.P had no chance but to rotate and had to give the site to BDS. BDS took advantage of this and executed the site with only one player of BDS dead.

BDS also had an impressive take on round three Basement, as the team was down in a 3v5 situation and it seemed like a V.P win. Olivier "Renshiro" Vandroux from BDS managed to walk down blue stairs and get two kills while the other two members of BDS pushed into Church to get the plant down, which won BDS the round. V.P’s roam on round six was pretty aggressive, and Rask managed to get a kill on Thatcher by jumping out of Gym window and then wasting some time by distracting BDS. Rask somehow managed to survive and went back to site while getting two more kills. V.P won the sixth round because of Rask’s aggressive plays.

BDS on defense was dominant, with Renshiro stopping every single play made by V.P when V.P tried to execute. The eleventh round was the most heartbreaking round for V.P fans, as V.P managed to throw a 2v5 situation. BDS was down to two players against five V.P players, and the worst part was BDS was offsite.

Adrien "RaFaLe" Rutik from BDS made an insane play from Cash. RaFaLe managed to get the planter, who was on Bedroom which confused V.P. The confusion led V.P into pushing BDS rather than trying to get the plant down a second time, but it didn’t matter as BDS managed to win by just waiting out the timer. BDS won the final map with a 7-4 scoreline, which meant BDS will face Empire in a best-of five.
