With the Six Charlotte Major 2022 done and dusted, we are thrilled to announce that the Asia-Pacific League will be back on June 15, 2022 for the beginning of Stage 2. This Stage will be pivotal to grab a slot for the upcoming Six Major and score points in the Global Standings with hopes of earning a spot for the Six Invitational 2023.
Here are some key information, including an update on the Asia-Pacific League Playoffs, schedules, and where to watch links.
AN UPDATE ON THE ASIA-PACIFC LEAGUE PLAYOFFS
The span of the Asia-Pacific region created technical challenges for teams competing in Stage 1 of the Asia-Pacific League Playoffs this season. We have been closely monitoring the situation that unfolded and in direct response to the feedback we received from pros and fans after those matches, as well as follow-up discussions with our partner organizations, we have decided to remove the APAC League Playoffs tournaments.
Fostering and maintaining a highly competitive league that reflects the values of Rainbow Six Esports will always be one of our top priorities. Starting with Stage 2, the top 2 teams from the North Division and the top 2 teams from the South Division in the final rankings of each Stage will directly qualify to the Major. We value our community and partners and are committed to continue discussing topics of concern that may rise in our ecosystem.
Following this change, the prize pool distribution and Global Standings Points allocation for the Asia-Pacific League have been adapted accordingly.
Prize pool distribution for the North and South Divisions according to stage rankings:
1st place: $20,000 USD
2nd place: $10,000 USD
3rd place: $6,000 USD
4th place: $4,500 USD
5th place: $3,000 USD
6th place: $3,000 USD
7th place: $2,000 USD
8th place: $1,500 USD
Global Standings Points allocation for the North and South Divisions according to stage rankings:
1st place: 215 points + Six Major spot
2nd place: 215 points + Six Major spot
3rd place: 205 points
4th place: 145 points
