November Six Major 2020 shifted online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

The November Six Major 2020 was the third International Rainbow Six Siege LAN event set in 2020 and was supposed to be taking place in Europe. However, due to coronavirus fears, Ubisoft has now decided to cancel the International Lan event and replace it with online regional tournaments.

Just like the August Major, this decision was made to prioritize the health and well-being of the players, coaches, and all the attendees.

Earlier today, Ubisoft shared this news in their blog post, showcasing their plans for the replacement online regional tournaments, which will be the last step to earn points in the race towards a qualification for the Six Invitational 2021.

Throughout the entire month of November, online events will take place across Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific. These four regions will share a prize pool of $500,000 USD, with each region receiving $125,000.

PRIZE POOLS

The four regional Majors will follow a similar prize pool breakdown as the Six August 2020 Major’s.

North America

Europe

Latin America

In Latin America, the $125,000 total prizepool of the November Six Major will be split as follows :

Brazil Division:

Mexico Division final match:

Top LATAM South Division team: 6.4% $8,000

Asia-Pacific

In Asia-Pacific, the $125,000 total prizepool of the Six November 2020 Major will be split as follows:

North Division:

Oceania:

South Asia:

In addition, an Operator bundle will be produced for the Major. 30% of the net revenue from these items will contribute to the prize pool which will be split evenly between the 4 regions: Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. The breakdown within each region will then follow the same structure as the Major’s main prize pool.

The November Major Operator Bundle will be revealed later this month.
