Ubisoft and FACEIT are joining forces to bring an official collegiate Rainbow Six Siege tournament to North American campuses. Rainbow Six’s thriving community is being rewarded with even more support from its developer.
In a blog post to their official site, Ubisoft broke down the two-tiered system for their season. The big draw will more than likely be the Championship League. It’s restricted to only one team per school that has a $30k + Merch Grand Prize involved. But the second tier is where you might see the real growth. The Recreational League opens play up to basically as many players as a school can muster. They’ll compete in Swiss-bracket style regional conferences before meeting in an online, week-long tournament. This creates a whole new path for collegiate Rainbow Six players, as good performances in the Rec league could lead to opportunity in a varsity program.
