Rafael "Mav" Loureiro is one of Brazil's most legendary players across both Battlefield and Rainbow 6 Siege. Few players have gone pro in multiple FPS titles so Mav is among an elite group. One of Brazil's most respected players, Mav also has the distinction of having spent most of his R6 career with the same team - Fontt/FaZe Clan. Despite his teams always dominating within Brazil, Mav struggled to find success internationally. After a long run of respectable finishes, Mav was removed from the FaZe Clan roster and has joined Team Liquid as a coach/analyst/6th player. While we're sad to see Mav step away from being an active competitor we're excited to see what he does next. LATAM is an amazing region that is often overlooked or ignored by most English-speaking R6 fans. We hope this podcast helps to highlight an incredible region in R6 esports.
Not known for spending much time in the spotlight, Aleksi "UUNO" Työppönen has quietly amassed a big following as one of the top Finnish players in Rainbow 6 Siege. The pressure was on for UUNO the moment he stepped foot in R6 esports, making his debut at the 2018 Six Invitational on the legendary ENCE roster. It wasn't an easy entry for UUNO as ENCE got knocked out of SI2018 by regional rivals PENTA and would then be relegated from Pro League the next season. Despite some setbacks in his early career, UUNO (and ENCE) would get redemption by qualifying for Pro League once more...only for UUNO to seek greener pastures. After a relatively short stint on LeStream, G2 came for yet another ENCE alumni and the rest is history. UUNO is now one of the core members of G2 and has grown into a leadership role over that time. We were fortunate to get an in-depth interview about UUNO's experiences starting out on PS4, battling his way to the top of Pro League, and the struggles that come from a fan base as large and as vocal as G2's.
Davide "FoxA" Bucci and Matthew "Achieved" Solomon have been around the North American professional scene since the beginning yet traveled very different paths on their way to the top. For FoxA it was immediate success followed by a brief period in the wilderness before returning to one of the best teams in the region. On Achieved's end, he spent many seasons grinding through Challenger League before his hard work paid off, finally landing a spot in Pro League then getting picked up by TSM a season later. Six On Six is lucky to have two experienced and talented players join us for our 12th episode as we look back on the NA Major and first stage of the NA League.

Jack "Doki" Roberston has the distinction of being the only Scottish player in Rainbow 6 esports. Notorious for his outspokenness on twitter and on his personal stream, Doki's reputation would eventually catch up with him as he found himself banned from competitive play in late 2019. Despite uncertainty about his future, Doki decided to keep his head down and prove that he had grown as a person and as a player. Establishing a large viewership on Twitch while being open about the missteps he'd made in the past, Doki returned to NaVi's starting roster after his 6 month ban ended. Troy and Parker sit down with one of EU's most talked about players to discuss the state of EU League, the road to redemption, and NaVi's recent struggles.
