The Six Invitational is returning to the greater Montreal area, from February 7 to 19! For the first time since 2020, we're excited to welcome the Siege family back in the iconic Place Bell, in Laval, where we'll reveal our roadmap for Year 8, the next season of Rainbow Six Esports, and crown this season's World Champions. More details on the event, including all the on-site activities, will be shared in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Group Stage: From February 7 to 11 - Not open to the public.
Playoffs Part 1: From February 13 to 15 - Not open to the public.
Playoffs Part 2 & Grand Final: February 17 to 19 - Open to the public.
The 20 teams qualified for the event will be split in 4 groups of 5 where they'll face-off in a single round robin with best of 3 matches. The top 4 teams of each group will advance to the Playoffs.
Playoffs & Grand Finals
The Playoffs will be a double elimination bracket with best-of-3 matches. Teams qualifying for the Playoffs will be placed in the bracket based on their seeding in the Group Stage as follows:
1st placed team in each group qualifies to the 2nd round of the Playoff Upper Bracket.
The teams that will rank 2nd in each group, will qualify to the 1st round of the Playoff Upper Bracket. They will get to pick their opponent amongst the 3rd place finishers from any group other than their own. The pick order will be determined by comparing the scores of all 2nd place finishers. Among the 2nd place finishers, the team that ranks the highest chooses first, and so on. If two 2nd placed finishers are tied in number of points, they will be seeded following the tiebreaker rules outlined in the competition's rulebook.
4th placed team goes into the 1st round of the Playoff Lower Bracket.
The winners of each match will advance within their bracket, with the loser of a match in the Lower Bracket being eliminated from the competition.
The Grand Final of the Six Invitational 2023 will take place on February 19 in a best-of-5 format with no map advantage, to crown the World Champions!
