Breaking Down the Six Berlin Major
There’s little doubt that the Six Majors make up some of the best Rainbow Six tournaments out there today. Behind the Six Invitational, they’re some of the most high-value competitions in the space, and they’re frequented by the best Rainbow Six teams the industry has to offer.
At the Six Berlin Major, sixteen teams will descend on the Theater am Potsdamer Platz to do battle across two main stages. Firstly, there’s the Group Stage, which sees four double round-robin groups fight it out for a chance to enter the Playoffs. Only two teams from each group can go through to the final stage, so you can bet your last dollar on the Group Stage being as intense as it could possibly be.
In the Playoffs, the remaining eight teams will face off in a single-elimination bracket, which leads up to the grand final series.
It’s a relatively simple tournament and it follows a format that is tried and tested in the world of Rainbow Six Siege. If you’re a frequent fan of Rainbow Six betting, you’ll likely already be familiar with the structure.
