Six Sweden Major Predictions | Format, Teams, and Odds

Posted on November 6, 2021 - Last Updated on June 3, 2022

Rainbow Six Siege enjoys a highly populated and massively valuable esports scene. At the top of the competitive table are the ‘S-Tier’ tournaments, the grandest of which are the ‘Invitationals’. These hugely prolific bouts between the world’s greatest R6S players boast multi-million dollar prize pools, some of the biggest in esports today. However, sitting just below the Invitationals are the Majors, and today, we’re here to discuss the next high octane, high-impact Major. We’re about to break down the Six Sweden Major predictions.

In the last year, three Rainbow Six Siege Majors were cancelled, owing to restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. In August of this year, however, the first Major since 2019 took place, bringing a $500k prize pool to competitors in Mexico. Now, we’re set to enjoy a Major hosted in Sweden, boasting all-new rules, a fresh format, and once again, a massive $500k prize pool.

Six Sweden Major: The Format

Originally, the first Rainbow Six Siege Major was a co-hosted event, constructed by ESL and Ubisoft. Since then, the format has changed, and now, the entire event is backed by Ubisoft. Firstly, sixteen teams must qualify by placing in the top four of their respective regional roster. As this is an international tournament, teams from all around the world are able to qualify – it makes for a diverse, dynamic competition.

Once the competition commences, the teams will be separated into groups of four, opening up with a Bo1 stage played in a round-robin format. When this stage wraps up, only eight teams will remain, and from that point, they’ll be facing off against one another in a single-elimination bracket. From here on out, each match is a Bo3, with the exception of the Grand Final event, which features a tense and exciting Bo5 format.

It’s a simple format, and it works well to establish the Six Majors as some of the best esports tournaments in the business. If you’re interested in Six Sweden Major 2021 bets, you’ll have a very easy time understanding the way the tournament works.

If you’re not interested in the granularity of checking through each and every team playing in the Major, you’ll at least need to know which ones to keep an eye on. After all, these tournaments feature the best Rainbow Six Siege teams in the world, and quite often, they all stand a fair chance of winning.

For the Six Sweden Major, the teams that have qualified are as follows:

In May of 2021, Ninjas in Pyjamas won the Six Invitational, the biggest esports tournament in the Rainbow vertical. This team, made up of some of the best esports players in Brazil, landed a phenomenal $1 million prize.

Further down the list, we can also pick out DAMWON Gaming, a prestigious organisation from South Korea. This team is one of the most high-profile organisations in other esports, namely League of Legends, and there’s a definite desire to carve out a victorious streak through Rainbow Six Siege.
