Rainbow Six Siege's LATAM Stage 2 Six Mini Major concluded its upper lower bracket matches. 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 Team oNe and Team Liquid was the most anticipated match in the upper bracket. The first map was played on Villa, which is a utility-heavy map. The Glaz ban from the side of Team oNe was quite surprising, but it seemed to be a counter ban against Team Liquid’s attacks. Liquid’s André "nesk" Oliveira popped off on round two as Jager, as nesk managed to kill four players and clutched the round. Team oNe’s attacks were pretty solid, but when it came down to execution, nesk was always able to stop oNe before getting the plant down. The first half ended with a 5-1 scoreline in favor of Liquid, with nesk sitting on nine kills.

Team oNe started to slowly gain momentum on defense with Liquid messing up the final site executions. Luca "LuKid" Sereno from Team oNe had a major impact on round nine, as he managed to kill two defenders during execution and won the round by stopping the defuser before it went down.

Liquid’s attack on round 10 was one of the most nerve racking rounds ever, as the round made its way to only 10 seconds remaining with all five players on both sides still alive. Liquid’s Luccas "Paluh" Molina got a frag and then started to plant the defuser while the rest of Liquid was busy protecting the plant. The round somehow came down to a 1v1 situation between Paluh and Kaique "Faallz" Moreira of Team oNe. Paluh managed to clutch the round immediately after getting the defuser down because Faallz missed the first shot while Paluh was planting. Liquid then managed to win Villa with a 7-5 scoreline with Nesk and Paluh fragging out for Liquid.

The second map was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map with Thatcher banned. Team oNe was able to take the first two round with ease, but after the second round, Liquid was able to read into oNe’s defensive strategy and counter oNe with ease. The first half ended with both teams going 3-3. Liquid on defense was able to stomp oNe, as Liquid managed to play almost every round with perfection. Thiago “S3xycake” Reis from Liquid had a major impact on round eight with Mute, as he got two kills with C4 and stopped oNe from pushing construction door. Team oNe’s attacks lacked coordination, which allowed Liquid to make plays and win all the defense rounds with ease. Liquid then went on to win the upper-brackets with a 7-3 scoreline, making Liquid the first team to qualify for the grand finals. This match also means that oNe will have to go through the lower bracket finals against NiP.

The lower-bracket match was played between NiP and Team oNe. The first map was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map with Thatcher banned. The first round was played on Bar/Stock site, which is unusual and has a zero pick rate. Bar/Stock is a super unplayable site which favors the attacker all the time, but oNe managed to play aggressive and surprised NiP by going to a weak site, which allowed oNe to keep an upper hand. Team oNe managed to win the first four rounds, depending a ton on frags and previous information gained from VODs from NiP. NiP completely underperformed the first map, going 1-5 on the attacking side against oNe, which is unusual considering NiP’s dominance over the past few seasons. NiP on defense didn’t really change much, as oNe was able to counter defensive setups with ease. Team oNe won the second map with a 7-3 scoreline.

The final map was played on Consulate, which is an attacker-sided map. NiP seemed to have lost confidence after losing pretty badly, and this was shown in round five where NiP was unable to win a 4v1 situation. Team oNe’s Felipe "FelipoX" Lucia played round five beautifully, as he managed to use NiP’s weakness against them. FelipoX started out in a 1v4 situation with the plant down and one player from NiP injured. FelipoX picked off two players and then snapped onto the last player. FelipoX then proceeded to take the final kill on the injured player and win the round. NiP did manage to take the match all the way to overtime, but it didn’t matter in the end as oNe closed the final map with an 8-6 scoreline.
