R6: Rainbow Six Roster Announcement
3rd August 2016
Today we are pleased to introduce our new European Rainbow Six: Siege competitive line-up, containing a blend between a few familiar faces and some new recruits to exceL eSports. The roster consists of Captain Jake ‘NoThumbz’ Lane, Mitch ‘Anubis’ Randall, Michael ‘Smitch’ Smith, Nathan ‘Nath’ Kelly and Diego ‘Diego’ Derksen. Jake, Mitch and Michael all had previous stints with exceL during season 2 of the ESL pro league, and after spending a season away from the organisation have elected to re-join, this time with Nathan and Diego completing the talented line-up.
The team will be competing at the upcoming Multiplay Rainbow Six: Siege UK open, presented at the brand new Multiplay Gaming Area in Trafford, Manchester on the 14th of August. Eight teams from this live qualifying LAN will be given the opportunity to compete in an online play-off tournament, the grand finals for which will be played at Multiplay’s Insomnia58 live on the eSports stage.
Furthermore, due to the team’s participation in the ESL pro league in season 2, they will be given the opportunity to requalify in the relegations tournament to earn a place in season 3. The team, albeit with a couple of different faces, qualified emphatically for season 2 ahead of their transfer away from exceL eSports, and it is our belief that they will repeat this feat ahead of season 3.
We look forward to supporting the team in their upcoming tournaments and as always will be bringing you live updates on their progress on our social media platforms.
