Rainbow Six Siege has been a whirlwind of a game in the E-sports industry. From its early struggles to become one of the biggest juggernauts in competitive E-sports. Ubisoft has been doing an incredible job of supporting both their casual and competitive fans. A new initiative that has been apart of a massive campaign to bolster Rainbow Six Siege’s support for competitive players. This new initiative is called the Collegiate E-sports League!
Collegiate E-Sports League Taking Off
Schools can nominate one team (per school) to participate in this championship. Teams will have a chance to win a $30,000 prize pool. As well as additional hardware prizes, including a cutting-edge Origin PC and CORSAIR peripherals. This is a wonderful opportunity for students who really want a shot at the big leagues. Earlier this year there was also an announcement by Ubisoft where the North American League had a re-launch. They added a league for Canadian players (finally!) to compete in, among many other notable changes. That have improved the overall health of the Rainbow Six Siege E-Sports community.
This new league will be in partnership with an online competitive platform named FACEIT who will operate the program as apart of the North American ecosystem. The Collegiate Esports League will also be sponsored by Corsair and Origin PC, a subsidiary of Corsair. The pre-season begins in October 2020, with the full season happening next year on January 2021.
