A closer look at the Six Invitational qualified teams
The Six Invitational will be the most international Rainbow Six: Siege tournament yet. Twelve teams from all around the globe will have a chance to take home their share of the $200 000 prize pool. Meet those, who will come to Montreal on February 3-5 to compete!

Six Invitational - Xbox One

Lethal Gaming

Lethal Gaming was one of the Rainbow Six Pro League Season 3 competitor. However, the roster that managed to win the Six Invitational qualifier is completely different, only keeping KenZ and RaMz - changing the roster (to get Easily and DuckYzZ) in the team came out to be a solution for Lethal’s problems. Bringing in fresh blood let Lethal made it to the Final Qualifier of the Six Invitational where they were simply unbeatable.

Who knows, maybe in Montreal they will prove they can be the next North American powerhouse.

Lucky7 Gaming

Lucky7 Gaming is an up-and-coming French squad. They have been around the Rainbow Six: Siege Pro scene playing prior on PlayStation 4, but only switch to Xbox this summer, too late to qualify for the Pro League. In the Six Invitational they will finally have a chance to play among the best and compete for real prize money.

Lucky7 performance in the Final Qualifier was stunning though. Not only they took down Supremacy in the WB semi, but later on kicked that team out of the qualifier.

Next step for Lucky7 will be the Six Invitational in Montreal, where they might be treated as an underdog.

Dex.UNITED

"Our hope is to be champion or grab a very positive place," stated Daniel "Legendz" Ferreira, captain of the Xbox One team as Dexterity managed to pull out the double - qualifying both their Xbox and PC team.

"We have the idea that they are much better organized tactically than any LATAM teams.” said Gohan about the international teams “Certainly our challenge will be read and their strategies and get prepared there,".Their strength is their commitment to the tactics, our improvisation is very strong and this may be our difference," added the player.

MindFreak

MindFreak has formed during the beta and two of the original members remains so far: Dizzle and Pun. They recruited Acez, Rolphy and Flanked after they proved to be both amazing opponents and partners. Fan of competition, MindFreak (previously The Cursed Legion) jumped on the opportunity to be part of the ANZ Cup who was shortly after revealed to be a qualifier for the Six Invitational. They will represent Oceania as the first Australian team to fight for their region in a worldwide tournament.

eRa Eternity

eRa Eternity stepped into the world of Rainbow Six: Siege in early January of 2017 acquiring Most Wanted, one of the best North American squads. Their line-up consists of many well-known and experienced players. Having that strong roster, including players who took part in many Season Finals and Rainbow Six Pro League, makes eRa one of the highest ranked R6 NA team at the moment.

For players like Kanine and Snake-nade it will be another chance to represent NA and compete on the international scene. In the Final Qualifier eRa went up against Astral Authority, Ferocity and FlipSid3 and took down all of them.

Undoubtedly, eRa Gaming will be one of favourites for the upcoming $200 000 tournament in Montreal, Canada.
