Rainbow Six Siege’s biggest event for 2021, the Six Invitational held in Paris, concluded its grand final playday in the upper brackets for playoffs. The grand finals were played in a best-of-five format, which led to the most intense and competitive matches. Ninjas In Pyjamas are granted a free map win because they went through the upper brackets. On the other hand, Team Liquid was one map down as they came from the lower brackets.

Every map in the best-of-five had infinite overtime rules, which meant the rounds would continue until one team had a two-round advantage after overtime.

Grand Final Match: Team Liquid vs. Ninjas In Pyjamas

Map 1: Default Win

As mentioned, NIP automatically won one map as a reward for winning the upper brackets. This likely put pressure on Liquid.

Map 2: Kafe Dostoyevsky

Kafe is a map where Liquid seemed strong, where they beat teams, such as Made In Brazil, Team SoloMid, and FaZe Clan. NIP started out strong with a 4-2 lead on the attack, which is impressive since the map is defender-sided. Everyone expected Liquid to come back but NIP won the remaining three rounds and closed out the game with a 7-2 scoreline.

This put NIP in a 2-0 advantage in terms of won maps, which meant only one more map to win the series.

Map 3: Chalet

The third map Chalet where Liquid only had one chance to come back, and if they dropped this map, NIP would be crowned as the champion. However, Liquid wasn’t going to give it up easily and did what they could, demolishing NIP on Chalet with a 7-3 scoreline.

Map 4: Clubhouse

The fourth map was Clubhouse and both teams are pretty strong on this map. Liquid banned shield operators, Clash and Montagne, to prevent NIP from keeping control of various parts of the map. The match was super close though Liquid gained the advantage and won the map with an 8-6 scoreline.

Map 5: Consulate

The final map on Consulate and was expected to go all the way to the final round. But the previous best-of-three against MIBR before the finals finally took a toll on Liquid. NIP dominated Liquid on the final map with their aggressive plays and won the match with a 7-2 scoreline.
