On Saturday, August 4th, theRainbow Six Canadian Nationals held the Live Finals for their first season at the Olympia Theatre in Montreal. There, Team Canada and the Northern Alpacas — the two best teams in the competition — squared off in a bid to win the top share from the $15,000 prize pool.
When the dust settled, one team stood victorious. The quintet of EvilWaffle, P3NG, Whiskerzz, FoxA, and EhhDannn — collectively known as Team Canada — took the crown and were named the champions of the inaugural Rainbow Six Canadian Nationals season.
With that said, registration is now open until September 21st for the Season 2 Open Qualifiers, which are scheduled to take place on the 22nd and 23rd of September. Following that will be an Online Circuit each weekend throughout the month of October, with the top-ranked teams going face-to-face in Toronto on November 3rd in a Grand Finale to determine who the overall national champion will be.

Over the course of two seasons starting this month, teams of Canadian players will face off in the PC version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege as they vie for a piece of the prize pool, which is valued at $15,000 CAD.
