Ubisoft is bringing its Rainbow Six Canada Nationals eSports tournament back for a second year, with the help of Enthusiast Gaming. Through it, Canadian squads will soon be given another chance to prove their mettle at Rainbow Six: Siege, in an attempt to earn a spot at EGLX’s finals.
Those who enter will vie for a piece of the $15,000 prize pool, which will be awarded on October 20th, at the next iteration of EGLX, Canada’s biggest gaming expo.
The tournament will begin with the first two-day Open Qualifier, where each team (made up of all Canadian players) will compete for their chance to participate in the elimination rounds of the Canadian league. Once league play begins, each team will face off over eight weeks, ending with the top four teams securing their spot at the finals. This year will also see the return of last year’s champions, Team Canada, who will earn a buy into the Stage 1 elimination round. For more information on the format and rules, please visit the official Rainbow Six Canada Nationals page.
Stage 1 Open Qualifiers will take place on June 29 and 30 and then again on July 6 and 7, followed by the Stage 1 elimination league play broadcast live each weekend in July. Stage 2 Open Qualifiers will start on September 7. At the end of each stage, the two top-ranked teams will have secured their place at the live Grand Finals in Toronto.
