Rainbow Six Siege Oceanic Nationals 2021 detailed by Ubisoft

And it all kicks off later this month.

Rainbow Six Siege Oceanic Nationals 2021 will kick off later this month, Ubisoft Australia has confirmed.

Starting 21 March, the Six Oceanic Nationals begin just two days before the Six Oceanic Challenger League, Ubisoft’s “official second tier tournament”, on 23 March.

“Both tournaments will feature eight teams per league playing across seven online playdays in a single round robin format BO1 series with overtime,” Ubisoft advised. “A regular win will reward teams with three points, while the losing team receives zero points. In the case that a series goes to overtime, the winner is rewarded with two points, while the losing team receives one point.”

The teams competing in OCN are as follows: Elevate, LFO, OkamiLFO, Pittsburgh Knights, Rhythm, Roflcopter, Team Bliss and Wildcard. A $100,000 total prize pool will be offered throughout the season, with $25,000 awarded at each stage and for the season finals.

Ubisoft Australia has once again partnered with LIVIN during the Esports tournament in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of mental health. This partnership will offer Siege fans the opportunity to save 15% at the LIVIN store by using the discount code OCN15 at checout.

“LIVIN is incredibly excited to be continuing our partnership with Ubisoft Australia,” said Casey Lyons, CEO and cofounder of LIVIN. “We are so grateful for the platform that Ubisoft provides to reach their community and share our message ‘It Ain’t Weak to Speak’ and break the stigma of mental health”.

All Oceanic Nationals matches will be broadcast on Twitch.

Rainbow Six Siege is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5. Its upcoming Operation Crimson Heist content will launch later this year.
