Six Invitational 2024 reaches playoffs stage

Four teams have already been eliminated from the Six Invitational.

The group stage of the Six Invitational has come to an end and now it's time for the playoffs. SI has already said goodbye to four teams: Geekay, Dplus, M80 and SCARZ.

The long, arduous Six Invitational playoff bracket begin tomorrow. The four games of the first round of the upper bracket will take place throughout the day.

Six Invitational playoffs games

For high-level Rainbow Six Siege fans, the Six Invitational playoffs promises to deliver a great show. Tomorrows action promises several exciting storylines.

Champion of the last two Majors, w7m opens the day with a clash against the French team of Wolves. On the other hand, Ninjas in Pajamas and FURY end the day.

The second game of the day replays the BLAST R6 Major Atlanta semifinal. In this match, FaZe Clan arrived as clear favorites, but on the other side, LOS had an almost perfect run in the competition. A journey that allowed the team to qualify for the Six Invitational. FaZe Clan is looking to take revenge for that game which ended 2-0 in favor of LOS.

Although further away, the Six Invitational playoffs also bring familiar faces face to face. Team Liquid and DarkZero faced each other in the semi-final of the Six Major Charlotte in 2022. At the time, the North Americans got the better of the game, even winning the competition. Although there are some changes in both, in each team there are guys who know each other very well.

Six Invitational Group Stage Stories

The group stage games of the Six Invitational told some stories.

Disappointment of the season

The M80 ends the season as a huge disappointment. The purchase of names like David "iconic" Ifidon and William "Spoit" Löfstedt brought high expectations that were not met.

Although success in regional competitions has been considerably successful, the same cannot be said internationally. In both Majors he failed to make the playoffs. At the Six Invitational, they only win one map in the group stage, missing the playoffs.

Coach Matheus "Budega" Figueiredo has already spoken about the season being below expectations for the M80.

"I want to say sorry for this showing this year. We've tried a lot of different things to make it work with this team, but none of them worked. I always put this team on the highest of standards and for next season we will become the team you want."

Pleasant Surprises

In the same group, Bleed Esports' performance stands out. The Asian team won a map against w7m and Virtus.pro, also winning series against M80 and Team Liquid.

FURY also ends the group stage on a high note. The Thai team finishes its group ahead of LOS and Team Falcons with ten points.
