Rainbow Six Siege esports continues despite COVID-19; Wildcard wins Six Masters 2020 and advances to Six August 2020 Major

Ubisoft recently held the Six Masters 2020 finals and Wildcard took the win, coming out on top over Okami LFO. Wildcard received $15,000 AUD and a guaranteed place at the Six August 2020 Major.

Okami LFO defeated Pittsburgh Knights in the lower bracket final on July 5. A best of five Grand Final against Wildcard proved too much for Okami LFO with Wildcard winning back to back matches to claim the win.

The end of this season of the Six Masters signifies the transition to the Oceanic Nationals which was announced earlier in the year.
