Who will win the Six Invitational 2020?

Diversity dominates at the Six Invitational 2020 with the top five teams representing North America, South America, Europe and Russia.

Falling short at the Six Invitational 2019, Team Empire (TE) return to the tournament as favourites with a slightly different roster, replacing Artyom “Shockwave” Simakov with Danila “dan” Dontsov before the start of the 2019 regular season. The Russians proved that their second place finish at the Invitational wasn’t an anomaly taking first place in the Pro League Season 9 Finals, the Russian Major League Season 2 and Season 3, and the Six Major Raleigh 2019.

Team SoloMid (TSM) spearheaded by prodigy Jason “Beaulo” Doty are a strong contender to challenge for the title this year, topping the Rainbow Six Pro League North America standings with a 6 win – 1 draw record for the current season. Other notable achievements for TSM in 2019 include first place finishes at DreamHack Montreal 2019, Six Major Raleigh 2019 North American qualifier, and United States Nationals 2019.

The Brazilian R6 scene have a strong representative in Team Liquid (TL) at the Six Invitational this year. TL have had a string of strong results in 2019 winning OGA Pit Season 3 and Brasileirao 2019, as well as top three finishes at DreamHack Montreal, Pro League Season 9 Latin America and Allied Esports Vegas Minor 2019.

Spacestation Gaming (SSG) take the fourth spot in the potential outright winner futures with the mixed North American & Canadian lineup a surprise entry given the form of other teams in the tournament.. Following his departure from Evil Geniuses last September, Troy “Canadian” Jaroslawkski joined a SSG lineup that has had consistent results at premier and Major level tournaments, finishing first at the United States Nationals 2019, and second at OGA Pit Season 3 and Pro League Season 9.

It’s a trial by fire for Rogue as the roster, assembled in January 2020, attend the Six Invitational as their first major LAN tournament together. Led by Frenchman Théophile “Hicks” Dupont, the team have had a strong start in the Pro League Season 11 holding the number one spot in Europe at 4 wins – 3 draws. The team inherit their Six Invitational spot from Hicks, AceeZ and korey who qualified from their previous teams.
