Berlin Major Starts Today

August 15, 2022

After bootcamping for the past few days at Astralis Nexus in Copenhagen, our Rainbow Six team is ready for the Six Berlin Major starting today.

We will play our first match against Elevate today at 12:20 CEST on Stream B.

Ahead of the tournament, we made a video showing the progress a year after turning Disrupt Gaming into Astralis NA:

The Major takes place from Aug. 15 to 21, where 16 teams compete for the chance to call themselves Major winners and take home the prestigious trophy.

The event format will be identical to the prior three Six Majors; all 16 teams have been seeded into four groups of four, where they will play a double round-robin, best-of-one map league tournament.

The top two teams in each group will then progress to a single elimination, best-of-three map playoff, with a best-of-five map grand-final.
