Rainbow Six Siege's European Mini Major Stage 2 concluded its upper-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 Team Empire was the most exciting match of the upper bracket finals. The first map was played on Coastline, which is an attacker-sided map. The first round was a pretty strong round from BDS. BDS managed to clutch a 2v3 situation on the first round by just fragging through Empire. The highlight player for Empire was Danila "dan" Dontsov, as Dan got seven kills within the first two rounds by playing Thatcher. On the other hand, BDS played completely on clutches. Olivier "Renshiro" Vandroux from BDS made multiple clutches by playing in such an unpredictable manner that Empire was unable to counter it. The first half ended with BDS leading with a 4-2 scoreline.

BDS on attack was not able to get control of the map because of Dan running around and fragging out. Dan played a major role in stopping BDS from executing site, and on round nine Dan clutched a 1v3 situation by killing two members of BDS and stopping the final player from planting. In the end, Empire managed to win Coastline with a 7-5 scoreline, which was quite surprising considering BDS’ fragging potential is superior compared to Empire’s. Dan and Dmitry "Always" Mitrahovich from Empire were the most dominant players for their team on the first map as they topped the leaderboards with 12 and 11 kills respectively.

The second map was played on Oregon, which is a defender-sided map. The first defensive round from Empire was played on the Basement site, and the strategy employed by Empire was pretty basic. The only change in this default strategy was that Empire opted to bring a Clash, which allowed Empire to gain more information and rotate wherever BDS tried pushing. The first round was a flawless victory for Empire, as BDS was unable to counter the Clash on Bunker. The third round was a sloppy attack from BDS, which was a 5v3 situation for them. Always was able to get two frags, which became a huge issue for BDS in the final execute. Renshiro managed to clutch the 1v1 situation in the end, which won BDS the third round. BDS then went on to take the first half with a 4-2 scoreline, which is pretty impressive considering Oregon is a defender-sided map.

BDS on defense was formidable with Shaiiko and Renshiro from BDS fragging out. BDS didn’t really use any special strategies, but Empire was unable to win gunfights against BDS. BDS on defense only managed to lose one round, which shows the team's strength. BDS won Oregon with a 7-3 scoreline. Shaiiko and Renshiro were in top form for BDS, as they carried their team with 12 and 11 kills respectively.

The third map was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a defender-sided map. Empire’s strategy for the Kitchen round was pretty solid as it extended into VIP. However, this didn’t matter as Shaiiko was able to walk down the white stairs and get a quad kill towards VIP, while the rest of BDS was executing site. BDS managed to close the first half with a 3-3 scoreline, which is pretty good considering Kafe favors defenders.

Empire on attack surprised everyone watching the stream, as they coordinated so well to counter BDS. Empire only managed to drop one round on attack against BDS and took the final map with a 7-4 scoreline. This victory for Empire meant the team is off towards the grand finals, while BDS will go to the lower brackets to face-off against another team.
