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

The most exciting matchup for the eighth playday was between NiP and FaZe. The first map was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map with Thatcher banned. The first round was pretty depressing for FaZe fans, as FaZe managed to throw a 2v4 post plant situation. NiP’s defensive strategies were pretty similar to the BDS strategy on Clubhouse CCTV round, where NiP opened garage walls partially and reinforced the cash wall to hold off attackers. NiP was able to win the first split with a 4-2 scoreline, which is pretty good considering the map favors defenders. NiP was even stronger on the attacks and they preferred to use Thermite over the unbanned Ace, unlike every other team who prefer to use Ace. FaZe did put up a really good fight against NiP, but every player on NiP was fragging really well. NiP took the first map with a 7-5 scoreline.

The second map was played on Coastline, which is a frag-heavy map. FaZe sneaked into the site on the second round and got the plant down on Service Entrance, without NiP being able to react to the plant. But NiP was able to retake the site and the floor above it and surprisingly won the round. FaZe was able to outfrag NiP, which allowed them to take six rounds with ease, but NiP clawed their way through on the attacks and was able to tie the game with a 6-6 scoreline. Eduardo "KDS" Fontes was the highlight player for FaZe, as KDS was one of the players who carried FaZe on Coastline.

Another exciting match to watch was between MIBR and Black Dragons. The first map was played on Coastline, which is a frag-heavy map. The operator bans were quite weird, but LATAM players do run a ton of Ace and Ash, so the bans were kind of logical. MIBR was leading 4-2 on the attacking side, but BD was able to claw through the match on attack. Both teams had impressive gun skills, which made the match very fun to watch. MIBR and BD ended up with a 6-6 scoreline which was a bit weird as we saw MIBR in the lead for a long duration. Victor "Hornetao" Lopes was a force to be reckoned with, as he carried BD to the 6-6 scoreline with seven kills after the rehost.

The second map was played on Theme Park, which is a defender-sided map. The Thatcher ban makes it even harder for attackers, as the only alternative is to bring a Kali. MIBR was unable to enter the building during round one due to BD playing super aggressive. BD was able to carry over the momentum from the first round and won the next four rounds flawlessly. The first half finished with BD leading on a 5-1 score. MIBR was at a complete disadvantage, but started picking up the pace on defense. MIBR was unable to close the gap, which allowed BD to take the match with a 7-3 scoreline.

The final match for the eighth playday was between SANTOS and W7M Gaming. The first map was played on Villa, which is a defender-sided map with the Thatcher ban. The Oryx pick from W7M was surprising, as Oryx is a rare pick. Oryx’s flank potential is very high but can easily be cut off when played in higher competitive scenarios. W7M was able to take the first four rounds on defense with ease, but then SANTOS switched up strategies and started playing Montagne. W7M was able to frag extremely well with PANICO and HerdsZZ having 14 and 10 kills respectively. W7M won the first map with a 7-3 scoreline.

The second map was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a utility-heavy map. W7M was dominant on their attacks, which was surprising as Kafe is a pretty defender-sided map when shields are involved. W7M was able to maintain the pace without showing any new strategies and won the match with a 7-4 scoreline.
