Rainbow Six Siege Mexico Major recently concluded its final games for the first day of groups. Group C and D are considered to be the toughest groups. Sadly, one team from each group is knocked out while others will move on to the playoffs.

Group C

DAMWON Gaming vs. G2 Esports

The match between these two teams was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map. The Thatcher ban from G2 Esports made it really hard for attackers to open walls. On the other hand, DWG banned Montagne to prevent their opponents from pressuring certain maps, like CCTV and Garage. G2 started on attack and played really well, working around their Thatcher ban. G2 was able to win four rounds on attack, which put a lot of pressure on DWG after the side switch. The first half resulted in a 4-2 scoreline. After the side switch, DWG played really aggressively and this caught G2 off-guard. DWG made plays like rushing into the site and dropping blue hatch to win rounds. These surprising and disruptive plays allowed them to take five rounds in a row and win the match with a 7-4 scoreline.

Group D

Team Liquid vs. Team Empire

These two teams played their match on Consulate, which is an attacker-sided map. The Nomad ban from Empire would allow defenders to roam and make aggressive plays without being punished. On the other hand, Liquid went for a Thatcher ban to prevent attackers from opening walls easily. Liquid started on attack and was able to get four rounds. Liquid took the first half with a 4-2 scoreline. The second half was fun to watch as both teams were winning alternate rounds. But Liquid’s score advantage allowed them to take the match a 7-5 scoreline.

Invictus Gaming vs. Team SoloMid

TSM’s entry fragger, Bryan "Merc" Wrzek, was unable to attend the Mexico Major because he tested positive for COVID-19. Owen "Pojoman" Mitura, the coach of TSM, is currently subbing the entry. The match was played on Villa, which is a defender-sided map. TSM started out strong despite playing with a sub and managed to get four rounds. The first half resulted in a 4-2 scoreline. However, after the side switch, TSM was unable to coordinate well on attack, which led to their loss. Invictus took advantage of TSM's mistakes and won the game with a 7-5 scoreline.
