North American League reveals Groups, Schedule and Prize Pools

Earlier today, Rainbow Six Siege streamed the much-awaited US Division draws for the upcoming North American League (NAL). The NAL will start off with the US Division next week, so here’s everything you need to know about it.


Groups

In the live stream, we got to see some compelling decisions from all the team captains, which eventually led to forming these strong groups.

US division groups

Group A: Spacestation Gaming, Disrupt Gaming, eUnited, Oxygen Esports

Group B: TSM, Sonqis, DarkZero Esports, Tempo Storm


Schedule

NAL Schedule

On Mondays and Wednesdays, the US Division will be broadcasted live starting at 6:00 PM EDT. On Fridays, the Canadian Division will take place in the same time slot, followed directly by the US and Canada Challenger Leagues.

The US Division’s inaugural season will have a total prize pool of $250,000 USD, and the Canadian Division will have a prize pool of $90,000 USD to compete for. For a full breakdown of the prize pool see Ubisoft’s blog post.

Talent

NAL talent

All these new exciting games will be brought to the viewers by some of the best talents in Siege esports. The talent line-up includes Analyst Velly, fan-favorite caster duo Kixstar-Interro and many more new faces, who will be bringing the live intense actions from the new Faceit studio in Las Vegas.


Additional Changes

COSMETIC UPDATES

The following uniform and headgear cosmetics are whitelisted for use in competition:

  • Pilot Program 1 & 2 team skins
  • Pro League Gold Sets
  • Default Skins
  • Future Phase 3 Esport Skins

All other uniforms and headgear are banned from competitive play. There are no restrictions on weapon skins or charms.

This should be a noticeable improvement for the Pro players, as they have been criticizing for a while now about the various in-game skins used to gain an unfair advantage.

Iana and Oryx also have finished their three-month grace period, so they will be added to the NAL operator pool. It should be pretty interesting to see how the Pro teams implement these new operators in their strategies.


The new league kicks off June 22nd at 6:00 PM EDT, and you can catch the live action on Twitch, Youtube, and Mixer.
