Rainbow Six Siege's North American Stage 2 Six Major Qualifiers concluded its semi-finals and the results are here. 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, 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 Spacestation and Mirage was the most anticipated match of the semifinals. The first map was played on Coastline, which is an attacker-sided map. The matchup was pretty one-sided in favor of Spacestation, as Mirage is comparatively new to the NA league. Mirage was unable to keep up with SSG’s fragging, which led Mirage to their loss on the first map.

Mirage tried rushing on round six, which was played on Sunrise and Blue Bar using smokes to cover the planter. SSG read into the rush and was able to counter Mirage and retake the site after the plant went down. SSG was pretty calm when it was their turn to attack. SSG used operators such as Lion, Dokkaebi, and other operators to distract Mirage. SSG took the first map with a 7-0 scoreline, which was not surprising considering the difference in skill.

The second map was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a utility-heavy map. Mirage had a slightly better game on Kafe as they were able to read into SSG’s default strategies. Troy "Canadian" Jaroslawski clutched a 1v3 post-plant situation on round 2 as Goyo. The Mirage players were stuck inside the Reading site after getting the plant down and Canadian rushed in as Goyo and managed to kill three players using one magazine. Mirage was able to take three rounds on defense, but it didn’t matter as SSG was able to close the game with a 7-3 scoreline.

It’s quite surprising to see SSG matched up with a team from the Canadian League for the Six Majors. But Mirage still has a chance to face the teams in the lower bracket of the Six Major Qualifiers.

Another exciting match to watch was between Soniqs and Disrupt Gaming. The first map was played on Coastline, which is a frag heavy map. Aaron "Shuttle" Duggar wiped Soniqs on the first round by killing four opponents and clutching the round for DG. The first split ended with DG leading with a 4-2 scoreline, but this changed when the Soniqs moved on to attack. The Soniqs completely switched up their pace and started playing super aggressively on attacks. Even though DG tried using multiple different strategies, it didn’t matter as the Soniqs were winning every gunfight that was presented. The first map went in the favor of Soniqs with David "Iconic" Ifidon fragging out with 14 kills. The Soniqs were able to take the first map with a 7-5 scoreline.

The second match was played on Clubhouse, which is a utility-heavy map. This match was pretty impressive to watch as we got to see the Soniqs use multiple variations of the SSG roam strategy on the Basement defense. The first half split was a 3-3 tie between both teams, but when DG started to attack, SQ was unable to win a single attack round due to the lack of coordination on Clubhouse. While most rounds ended with a 1v1 or 1v2 situation, DG was able to take advantage of each instance and win out the rounds. Disrupt won the second map with a 7-3 scoreline.

The final map in the series between Soniqs and Disrupt Gaming was played on Kafe Dostoyevsky, which is a utility-heavy map. The final match was pretty interesting as we got to see the match go all the way to overtime. SQ was able to win the final round of overtime by just wasting time to win the match with an 8-7 scoreline. The winners of these matches play against each other next, while the other teams fall into loser brackets for one last chance.
