We are pleased announced our first venture into Rainbow Six Siege with the signing of a full Finnish line up previously known as ‘Moti On’.
The new NYYRIKKI.R6S team has been showing significant potential in recent tournaments hinting that they are on the verge of breaking into the higher tiers of Rainbow Six Esports. Examples include recent wins in the Major qualifier over established teams such as ENCE and Supremacy and a podium 3rd place finish at the Nordic Championships last year which gives them the confidence needed to pursue their goals of playing at the top level of the esport.
