eX.RB6 Win Xbox Pro League Finals
To start the weekend off, at PAX East, the Xbox Rainbow Six Pro League Finals took place. Four of the best teams from around the globe fought for a $50k prize pool, with 25k going to first.
To start the day, in the semi-finals, we had our guys vs. Team Vitality, whom many considered to be the favorite in this tournament, in a Best of 3. It was an amazing match in which our guys fell into a deficit after the first map, and being on the verge of getting knocked out. After going down 0-1, the guys held tough, showing resiliency. Composure was key, as the guys ended up taking the next two maps vs. Team Vitality, moving them into the Grand Finals. The guys would play the winner of Team Infused vs. eLevate. After another long, intense matchup, eLevate ended up defeating Team Infused, giving them a spot in the Grand Finals vs. our very own.
Starting the Finals, nerves were inevitable, as we watched our team play on the biggest stage that Rainbow Six has offered yet. The guys fought relentlessly, back and forth with eLevate on the first map, in which our guys would end up taking in overtime. Even still, this wasn't a time to celebrate as the guys still needed to win one of the next two maps to take home 25k and the title of Rainbow Six Pro League Champions. The second map, was the most intense map of the whole tournament, as the teams went to ANOTHER overtime. Even with the nerves, and the thought of 25k on the line, the eX.RB6 team managed to pull out another OT victory and secure their place as CHAMPIONS.
We are very proud of our team, as they accomplished the goal they set when the season began. These guys deserve all the credit in the world, as well as support.
