ESPORTSREPORTER.COM / BENJAMIN LITVACK – STAFF WRITER / SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2021 /
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back! The Rainbow Six Siege Mexico Major has been done, and the dust has now settled. If you still haven’t seen any of it; whether it was the group stage, playoffs, semi finals, or finals, then WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING READING THIS ARTICLE!?!? Go back and watch those games! You’re missing out on world class esports competition if you’re not. But if you’d rather get the details from us here at Esportsreporter, I certainly won’t stop you. Consider that any spoiler warnings. Now here in this article, we’re going to discuss all the teams that showed up to the major and went beyond everyone’s expectations. So let’s get right into it!
Team oNe-Of course we’re going to start with the actual winners of the major, who else would we start with? Team oNe made history at this event. Not only was this team formed by the esports equivalent of Moneyball, they also participated in the first Tiebreaker match EVER in Rainbow Six Siege pro league history. Look Team oNe just would not go down. There were plenty of times where they started slow, or people were concerned how the team would fare if their superstar player of Alem4o didn’t have a good day. Yet they never quit. They hyped themselves up, and hung in there. The circumstances to force the tiebreaker were incredible, CAG could not win more than two rounds, and Team oNe made sure of that. They kept the APAC juggernaut CAG to two rounds and forced the tiebreaker. Then they fought, scrapped, and clawed their way to the top, culminating in a 5 match showdown against Team Empire.
Team oNe made history in so many ways at this major, and showed the world that LATAM’s dominance runs deep.
DWG Kia-Speaking of history making, NO ONE saw this team coming. The reigning world champions NiP didn’t, R6 dynasty G2 Esports certainly didn’t, and the rest of the Siege world didn’t. They blew every expectation out of the water, and carried the torch for all of APAC into the playoffs of the Major. Though they fell to Team Liquid 2-0 to end their run at the Mexico Major, their victories over two titans of Siege did not go unnoticed. Their pure unchecked aggression was too much for the current and former world champs. They’re considered a winner from this event because they did what no one expected anybody to do, and that was send Ninjas in Pyjamas home.
Team Empire-The last team that will be considered a winner from this event has to be the runner-ups of Team Empire. Yes they came in second, they were so close yet so far, it’s more obvious that they lost more than anybody else etc. All of that is true. Yet the Russian machine is back. For all of their struggles earlier in the year, they all seem to be gone now as only two teams beat them throughout the entire tournament. The first was Team Liquid who fell to Team oNe, and the other was Team oNe in the finals. There are two must watch matches from this major. The first was the entire tiebreaker games between Team oNe and CAG. The other is Team Empire vs. BDS Esports in the semi-finals. That entire series between those two teams was as peak level R6 Siege as you can get and it was an absolute nail biter from beginning to end. Though they end the major as the bridesmaid this time, Team Empire have a lot to be proud of, and every other team, a lot to be very afraid of.
