Rainbow Six Siege's North American League 2020 just concluded its final qualifier playday and the results are here. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. The North American League Qualifiers had some really exciting matches to watch this week, with all the matches played as a best of three format. Some matches were played off stream to speed up the qualifier process. 

The winner of this qualifier will head to the Six Major along with the top three teams from previous qualifiers. The teams fighting it out for the qualifiers are DarkZero Esports, Susquehanna Soniqs, Tempo Storm, and Mirage. All the matches took place in one day, so this ended up taking a toll on the players who were sent to the lower bracket.

The first game between the Soniqs and Tempo Storm was an impressive match. The winners of this bracket would go on to meet DarkZero in the Finals for their Six Major spot. The first map was played on Villa, where the match went 8-7 in the favor of the Soniqs. David “Iconic” Ifidon was instrumental on this map, carrying his team with 14 kills and planting the defuser. The second map, however, was a super one sided match for the Soniqs. They won the attacking split 5-1 on Oregon. Oregon is considered to be a defender sided map. Soniqs eventually finished up the round 7-2 and went on to the finals.

The matchup between the Soniqs and DarkZero was one of the most anticipated fights this playday. The first map was played on Villa, and it was surprising to see the Soniqs win the round 7-5 over DarkZero as DZ seem to have really good stats on Villa. Santino “Gomfi” Meulenaere gave the Soniqs the necessary entry picks into site and made it easier for the victory. 

The second map was played out on Coastline. It went super close for both teams, but DarkZero won it out 8-6 thanks to their more aggressive approach. The final map decided which team got into the Six Major and it was played on Consulate. This was a really exciting match to watch as it went all the way to an 8-7 overtime match point. Both teams put up an excellent fight, but Alexander "Skys" Magor carried DarkZero with 15 kills while playing as Buck and Smoke to secure the win for his team.

The four teams that have qualified for the majors are Spacestation Gaming, Team SoloMid, Oxygen Esports, and DarkZero Esports.
