Thank you to all who joined us in the ESL Arena at PAX East and online as the top four teams across Europe and North America gathered to fight in front of a live audience for the very first Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege Xbox One championship title and a share of the US$50,000 prize pool. We laughed! We cried! We sieged! Here’s how it all went down.

The day began with European Team Vitality up against North American eXcellence Gaming. The teams were pretty evenly matched, making for some epic play. Check out Vitality’s KRiiSKOOO with this double kill!

In the end, eXcellence lived up to their name, taking the match 2-1 and moving one step closer to winning the championship.

Next up, North American Team eLevate battled with European Team Infused. eLevate was victorious, also winning 2-1 to move on to the Finals!

The top two North American teams ended up together in the decisive Season 1 Finals of the Rainbow Six Pro League. eLevate and eXcellence went into their match neck-and-neck in the standings, but ultimately eXcellence came out on top!
