Six Invitational 2019 Winners

G2esports lifts the Hammer, becomes the Rainbow Six Siege World Champions for the second time in a row.

The Six Invitational 2019 ended, with two of the best Rainbow Six Siege teams in the world making history playing the longest ever match of Rainbow Six Pro League major tournament. The night was full on showdown, some immense amount of gameplay ever played, but, as we know, only one team could be crowned as the champions and so G2esports are, uplifting & defending that Hammer of Championship for the second time, THE WINNERS OF SIX INVITATIONAL 2019.full-width

After a competitive first couple of maps, the championship came down to G2's map choice of Bank. And it was their choice for a reason, as G2 dominated the map throughout, ultimately only giving up one round to runner-up Team Empire.

The Finals began with the first map - Coastline with Team Empire completely dominating the first round, winning with a perfect 5-0 sweep. In response, G2 won the next round giving a tough fight. The third round was a shootout, one in which G2 narrowly survived long enough to defuse the bomb. Both teams remained even through the first half of the first map and continued back and forth, but G2 did pay Empire back with their own perfect round to tie things up at four rounds apiece. Unfortunately, G2 followed that with some uncharacteristic miscues involving errant grenades, leading to another Empire perfect round. G2 countered with an expert play, and the match wasn’t over yet. Empire wasn't in the mood to give up, and then the game went to 7-7 Overtime, following up to 10-10. Finally, G2 took over the map by taking an early 5-3 man advantage in the final round and winning it by 12-10, all over to round 22.

Both the teams then moved on to Border for the next clash. Border was the least played map for G2 but they didn't let this bother as they quickly pulled ahead 2-0 advantage. The biggest highlight was Kantoraketti (Juhani Toivonen) tossing in a C4 round and scoring a double kill. Team Empire had a chance to make the series a little closer but wasn't able to plant the bomb on the fifth round and time expired, the round went to G2 and despite Team Empire's continues effort, G2 secured the map with a final score of 7-4.

Bank was the final map for G2 to secure a clean 3-0 victory and the last hope for Team Empire's comeback. Things quickly tied up with a 1-1. There's a reason we call G2 the best as they rampaged through the Bank map, creating a complete massacre, putting Team Empire on their heels as they secure six wins in a row. The scoreboard now showed 6-1All the hopes for Team Empire's comeback started to vanish, as the match point brought us near the end of the game. G2 won the game, the tournament, and lifted the Sledgehammer for the second consecutive time with a decisive victory of 7-1.
