Ubisoft has confirmed earlier today that the Six Invitational 2021 will the first Rainbow Six Siege official tournament for which match replays will be released publicly.
The news came as a complete surprise to the whole Siege community, but a good surprise nonetheless. With the group stages of the Six Invitationals starting in a few hours, Rainbow Six Siege players are hyped to see the return of International LAN event after over a year.
Match Replay is a system that automatically records your last 10 played games. With it, you’ll be able to re-watch and fully spectate your recorded games from both first-person and top-down points of view, from any player, and any angle.
The Match Replay system was first announced back in SI’ 2020; however, it finally made it to the live version of the game with Y6S1 Crimson Heist after months of testing.
Ubisoft always said they wanted to share the match replays from official esports matches. But when the new season of the regional leagues started, there were no mentions of the availability of the match replays, which raised a lot of talk in the Siege community.
But it seems like Ubisoft is finally keeping their words by releasing the match replays of competitive R6 matches for the first time. As stated by Ubisoft, the replays will be made available in two weeks following the conclusion of the event.
The one concern everybody has for these match replays is that they will be invalided after a new game update, making them unusable. The devs are completely aware of this problem and are trying their best to mitigate this issue. In the meantime, you could try this workaround mentioned by Siege’s Esports Director Wei Yue.
The Six Invitational 2021 “May Edition” will be live from May 11th to May 23rd, and the playoffs will take place in Palais Brongniart, a historical venue in Paris. So make sure to tune in to receive exclusive in-game rewards through Twitch.
