Rainbow Six Pro League Season 11 FINALS Cancelled

Coronavirus adds another victim to its list of cancelled events

With COVID-19 declared a pandemic, everyone around the world seems to be affected by it in some way, except Rainbow Six Siege until now. Ubisoft is finally forced to act upon this situation by cancelling the R6S Pro League Season 11 Finals in São Paulo, Brazil.

Additionally, the APAC Finals LAN event in Sydney has also been cancelled to ensure the health and well-being of all the teams. This event was a way through which the teams from the Asia-Pacific region would have qualified for the Pro League Season 11 Finals. But now with Season 11 Finals being cancelled, they don’t have to worry about qualifying.

The Rainbow Six Siege Season 11 Finals was scheduled to be held May 16th–17th. Top two teams from each region would have competed in Brazil for the trophy and a prize pool of around $290,000. Unfortunately, the event is now cancelled and like many fans, caster Parker Mackay is devasted by this news.

But not to worry as the online portion of Rainbow Six Pro League will still continue as planned. The prize pool of the online season will be split as usual among all participating teams. However, the prize pool of the Season 11 LAN Final will be split in different ways.

Each major region will split $290,000 available from Season XI Finals, coming down to $72,500 for each region. In the EU, NA, and LATAM regions the first and second ranked team, at the end of the online season, will secure $50,000 and $22,500 respectively. Whereas in APAC, the 1st and 2nd team will receive $7,500 and $5,000 respectively.

In addition, APAC region will also be getting their share from the APAC LAN Finals prize pool. The $50,000 prize pool will be allocated evenly between the four sub-regions, with the 1st and 2nd ranked teams each receiving $7,500 and $5,000 respectively. Tallying up to $20,000 for the first-placed team and $10,625 for the second.

“While we’re obviously disappointed that these events won’t be going ahead, we are excited for the continued growth of Rainbow Six esports and look forward to the kick-off of our new regionalized esports program,” said Ubisoft.

The second half of ESL Pro League Season 11 returns 18th March in APAC, and NA, EU and LATAM joining in the next week. Get ready for all the actions coming out with G2’s new super team vs Rogue on March 23 and many more live on Twitch or Youtube.
