Welcome to our first supersized episode of Six On Six! We decided to bring on 4 of the best coaches in all of Rainbow 6 Siege for a special Six on Six On Six! Our sixth episode unites top coaches from each of the 4 major regions of professional Siege to give valuable insight into how they view the game. Dizzle (from Fnatic), Shas (from G2), Twister (from Furia, formerly NiP and FaZe), and Pojoman (from TSM, formerly DZ) have a wealth of knowledge and experience that they shared over the course of 3 hours. From how they got their start coaching, to dealing with problematic players, to the way coaching has changed over the years -- we were extremely fortunate to get to spend time with some brilliant minds behind some of the best teams in Siege.
One of the most recognizable women in all of esports, Lauren "Goddess" Williams has accomplished more in Rainbow 6 Siege than almost anybody else. A 3-time professional player and Dreamhack champion, Goddess has been involved in the Siege scene for half a decade now, earning her stripes on Xbox before making the leap to PC. While Goddess may have retired, she remains active within the community as a streamer and employee of the Susquehanna Soniqs. Join us for our longest episode yet as Goddess shares her experiences a woman in a male-dominated industry; her time spent captaining one of the longest-running teams in North America; and how every esport can do more to help elevate women by challenging sexism within gaming.
While the Asian Pacific region of Rainbow 6 Siege may fly under the radar for most fans, Etienne "Mag" Rousseau is a name that even casual viewers will recognize. The energetic and athletic Australian captain of Fnatic's team Mag joins us for our fourth episode to shed light on a region that has made leaps and bounds over the past couple years. We discuss the struggles of competing in a new region; the challenges that Australia-New Zealand teams face being so geographically isolated from the rest of the world; how the newly amalgamated APAC North league will help the region grow; and you better believe we bring up one of the most infamous upsets in all of Rainbow 6 Siege history: the Fnatic vs Evil Geniuses match from Pro League Finals in Rio.
Kevin "Easilyy" Skokowski has long been one of the most charismatic figures in North America's pro Rainbow 6 scene so we're delighted to welcome him onto our third episode of Six On Six. Ride along as Canadian, INTERRO, and Easilyy discuss the differences between Ranked and Pro play; how teams spot potential in young/unproven players; the fabled SI, Paris, and Raleigh Major group casts; and more!
For our second episode we're joined by Fabian "Fabian" Hällsten - one of the most decorated and infamous men in all of Rainbow 6 Siege. 2 World Championships, 3 Season Championships, 1 Major Championship, and a handful of other awards give Fabian the distinction of being one of Siege's most successful players ever. Beyond his achievements in-game, Fabian is equally recognizable as being one of the most outspoken, brash, and notorious figures in the community, never failing to share his opinion on whichever topic is being discussed.
Over the course of 2 hours, Fabian shares details of his time on PENTA, G2, and Vitality; his views on in-game leadership and how he has excelled and/or stumbled in that area; the impact that his teammates and coaching staff had on him as both a leader and player; his role as a villain within the Rainbow 6 Siege esports scene; and the legacy he's left behind over the past four years.
