Rainbow Six Siege's LATAM Stage 2 Six Mini Major concluded its semi-finals and the results are here. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. The LATAM Stage 2 Six 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 NiP and Team Liquid was the most anticipated match of the semifinals. The first map was played on Oregon, which is a defender-sided map. NiP had an unlucky disconnect on the first round, which meant NiP had to play a 4v5 and eventually lost the round. Liquid’s attack in the third round was actually pretty different compared to what the other teams have presented. The Lion pick from Liquid actually helped the team clear off utility and cut off rotations at the same time.

For some reason, NiP decided to go Basement on defense four times in a row, even though Liquid destroyed NiP every single time. NiP decided to go dorms on the fifth round and it was much closer than the basement rounds. The fifth round came down to a 1v1 between Luccas "Paluh" Molina from Liquid and Gustavo "Psycho" Rigal from NiP. Paluh was easily able to clutch out the 1v1 situation, leading to a 5-0 scoreline, NiP then managed to get one round and closed the first half with a 1-5 scoreline, which is terrible considering Oregon is defender-sided. NiP was slowly able to recover momentum, but it was too late as Liquid won the first map with a 7-4 scoreline with Liquid’s Nesk fragging out with 12 kills after rehost.

The second map was played on Consulate, which is an attacker-sided map. Gabriel "pino" Fernandes clutched an impressive 1v3 situation on CEO. Pino killed one player on front desk and immediately switched weapons while flicking onto the next target to save the round for NiP. Liquid was pretty strong on the attacks, leading to a 4-2 scoreline in the first half. NiP tried to claw back into the fight, but Liquid was on point with both coordination and gunfights. Even though NiP managed to get a few rounds by fragging out on attack, it didn’t matter as Liquid took the final map with a scoreline of 7-4. The new coaching staff for Liquid has made a lot of difference in terms of confidence when it comes to the team's attacks.

Another exciting match to watch was between MIBR and Team oNe Esports. The first map was played on Oregon, which is a defender-sided map. Kaique "Faallz" Moreira from Team oNe played extremely well on round three, as he managed to get a quad kill playing Smoke on the showers hallway. MIBR was unable to counter oNe’s defensive setup, so MIBR pulled off an amazing rush bait strategy. This strategy involved one player staying outside blue distracting the opponents while the rest of MIBR rushed into the laundry site and got the plant down. After MIBR got the plant down, MIBR’s Lucca "MKing" Coser rushed the defenders and got three kills in the process. The match was super close in terms of score as the game was forced into overtime, and oNe closed the first map with an 8-7 scoreline.

The second match was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a utility-heavy map. MIBR was super dominant throughout the map with the first half going 4-2 in the favor of MIBR. Jaime "Cyb3r" Ramos from MIBR played exceptionally well, clutching multiple rounds and fragging for MIBR almost every round. Cyb3r managed to bag over 17 kills playing Ash and Lesion. Neither team showed any impressive strategies, probably to save these ideas for the finals of the Six Majors.

The final map in the series was played on Coastline, which is map that can go either way. Coastline is a map where strategies don’t matter. That said, MIBR’s strategy on the tenth round for kitchen defense was pretty different. MIBR extended into penthouse with Goyo and Wamai with tons of crossfire from service entrance. This didn’t matter as oNe expected a similar setup and countered MIBR with ease. Team oNe then proceeded to take the map with a 7-5 scoreline, which dropped MIBR to the lower brackets of the LATAM Six Major.
