The Rainbow Six US Nationals is back, kicking off the second season of competition, starting April 6th. The US Nationals is the premier esports program for Rainbow Six in the US, serving as a spotlight for the best teams and players in America. The total prize pool has been raised to $156,000, with the winning team earning the title of Team USA 2019. For more information on prizing, visit this link.
Saturdays are the open qualifier days, hosting tournaments that any US team can enter and compete in. The top placing teams from each Conference will return later in the week to play live in our broadcasted showcase until only one team remains. Doubling down in 2019, the R6USN will have two broadcast days per week, highlighting the top four teams from each Conference. Western Conference teams will compete live on broadcast Tuesday evenings. The Eastern Conference teams will compete on Thursdays. Towards the end of the stage, the top four teams will play in a semifinal and final round, determining who will move on to the R6USN Finals in December.
Just like last year, we will be hosting three stages plus a wild card qualifier, giving teams four chances to qualify for the finals in December to play against the top teams in the country and earn the title of Team USA.
