With 321,000 peak concurrent viewers, the Six Invitational 2018 Grand Final between

This second year of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League has been the year of PENTA
Sports, as the European team won two Pro League Season Finals out of three and this
Six Invitational 2018. To win the latter, the team led by captain ‘Fabian’ Hällsten
had to defeat the reigning World Champions, Evil Geniuses, supported by their North
American home crowd.

In an unforgettable Grand Final, the best proof of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
esports potential, PENTA Sports successfully overcame a 0-2 lead for Evil Geniuses,
to win 3-2 via a last map concluded in overtime by Niclas ‘Pengu’ Mouritzen in a 1v2

The Six Invitational 2018 also hosted supplementary and original showdowns,
including a Showmatch featuring a selection of Brazilian players facing uL Gaming
from China, a territory represented for the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
esports event.

Now that the second year of Rainbow Six Pro League is over, it’s time for a third
year to begin. The Year 2018-2019 will start with the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro
League Season 7, a three months long transition season that will pave the way for
the new Pro League format, announced back in January: each Year will from now on be
composed of two six-months long Seasons. A format starting with Season 8 in June

The next Major is also coming up soon. Before the 2019 edition of the Six
Invitational, the Six Major Paris will gather the sixteen best Tom Clancy’s Rainbow
Six Pro League teams worldwide, in Paris, France, this August.

Pro League Season 8 will be the first showcase for the slew of significant
announcements made during last week’s Six Invitational 2018. The Pick & Ban mode,
available in custom PvP games for all players, will allow each team to prevent their
opponents from choosing two Operators of their choice for the entire match. The
attacker’s team will also be banned from choosing those two Operators for the match,
adding more excitement and unpredictability into the game. The match structure will
also be updated, as for each map the defender’s team will play all of its 5 rounds
as defender before switching to attack for potentially 5 more rounds, depending on
the score.

About Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege

Inspired by real-world counter-terrorist organizations, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
Siege puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarter confrontations. For the
first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new
style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into
modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s
position. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over
their ability to fortify their position by reinforcing walls and floors, using
barbed wire and deployable shields, laying mines and more, or to breach the enemies’
position using observation drones, setting charges, rappelling and more. The fast
pace and uniqueness of each siege sets a new bar for intense firefights, strategic
gameplay and competitive gaming.
