Rainbow Six Siege's North American Stage 2 Six Major Qualifiers concluded its lower bracket finals and grand finals. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the matches have been held online. The North American Major Qualifiers had some really exciting matches to watch this week. We got to see a variety of maps in play, teaching us new strategies that can be implemented into our own games.

The lower bracket matchup between Disrupt Gaming and Soniqs was the first match of the lower bracket final. The first map was played on Clubhouse, which is a defender-sided map. All the rounds were pretty exciting as only one team can head on to the grand finals of the Six Major Qualifier. David "Iconic" Ifidon from Soniqs was fragging out against DG while playing as Maestro. Iconic had seven kills in the span of two rounds playing support operators like Maestro and Mute. Iconic even had an insane clutch on the second round, where he managed to get four kills and win the round for Soniqs. The first half ended with an intense 3-3 scoreline.

Iconic also popped off on round seven. He managed to walk down and get his opponent who was playing blue stairs. Iconic then continued to slaughter DG by walking into site and getting four kills in the process. The first map went all the way to the overtime match point, with the Soniqs taking the final round and closing the map with an 8-7 scoreline. Iconic played a major role in winning the first map for Soniqs as he had a total of 20 kills.

The second map was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a utility-heavy map. DG was pretty dominant on the defense side. Nick "njr" Rapier from DG got an ace on round three playing Jager on Cocktail. Soniqs could have prevented the ace if they managed to plant the bomb, but they messed up by going for the kill. The first half was about to be flawless for DG, but Soniqs made a risky rush move, which surprisingly won Soniqs the round. DG was able to carry the momentum from defense and won the second map with a 7-2 scoreline with Jack “J90” Burkhard from DG carrying the team with 16 kills across the map.

The final map was played on Villa, which is an attacker-sided map with the Wamai ban. Soniqs Alex "SlebbeN" Nordlund had an impressive first round, as he killed four attackers and got the planter before DG was able get the plant down. Soniqs were able to take the first half with a 5-1 scoreline, which is pretty impressive. However this didn’t stop DG from winning the defenses. DG stepped up big time and was able to take the scoreline back to overtime. DG won the lower bracket finals with an 8-7 scoreline to move on and face SSG.

The grand finals played between SSG and DG was played in a best of five format, with SSG having one map advantage over DG. SSG had the advantage as the team managed to go through the upper brackets. The first map was a default win for SSG.

The second map was played on Theme Park, which is a defender-sided map. SSG didn’t really show any impressive strategies, but did rely a ton on fragging. SSG’s Alec "Fultz" Fultz played extremely well, as he finished the first half with 10 kills. Fultz’s contribution for SSG allowed his team to take the first split with a 4-2 scoreline, which is pretty good for a defensive split. However, DG on defense was able to outfrag SSG. DG only played a single hard breacher, which made it difficult for them to breach multiple walls. SSG took the first map with an 8-6 scoreline.

The third map was played on Consulate, which is an attacker-sided map. SSG used many weird strategies, such as running Thermite, Ace, and Ying to run into site for executing a fast plant. Disrupt managed to win Consulate with an 8-7 scoreline just by fragging out and not really using any special strategies.

The final map was played on Villa, which is right up SSG’s alley. The first half was a 3-3 tie between the two teams, which is actually pretty bad considering Villa is a defender-sided map. DG on attack was unable to win a single round. Fultz carried SSG with 13 kills playing operators such as Jager and Ash. SSG won the final map with a 7-3 scoreline and qualified for the Six Majors.
