Elevate was the top team in the world back in 2017 when they were playing on Xbox. After their transition on PC they showed that they still belong in the top. After securing a spot in the Finals in Season 1 they reproduced their masterstroke by taking down no less than FlipSid3 Tactics.
SkyS, LaxinG, Shuttle, England and Chapstick will fly to Germany as the 3rd seed of NA and try to break ENCE in the first round.

BRK managed to reach Season One Finals under the name of Black Dragons and after changing organization they were pretty dominant all over the season; only falling against Team Fontt.
Zigueira and Nesk will have to get all the support from their mates; and with Yuuk, Julio and oNe try to take Vertical Gaming to move forward in the Pro League Finals and may be get a rematch against PENTA Sports.
A Rainbow Six LAN Finals would not be complete without Willkey and its mates to represent Finland & Europe.

With Kantoraketti, Pannari and Shatte on their side, Willkey & Bounssi secured their LAN spot and took seed #1 of Europe and will face Elevate in their first match.
The current holder of the Pro League Title managed to break the curse of year one and requalify to the Finals. Fabian, Pengu, KS, Goga and Joonas will come to Gamescom with the cup and will have to do whatever they can to no give it away to someone else. They will represent Europe as seed #2 and will face Excellence Gaming in the first match.
Millenium won the second season of Pro League back in year one and the French squad will try to repeat the success story in this year two.
