Rainbow Six Siege is a game that attracts the attention of pro gamers and viewers with each passing day. Ubisoft is updating their game every day to make it one of the most popular games of its genre. With the increasing interest, bigger tournaments started to be organized and more teams were included in the competition.
Today, we will take a look at the five highest-paid teams in Rainbow Six Siege esports. Without further delay, let's get started with our list.
5. Team Empire
We start our list with Team Empire. One of the interesting features of the team is that three players of the Russian team have been on the roster since the team was founded in August 2018. These players are JoyStiCK, Scyther and the captain of the team, ShepparD. Team Empire, which has Six Major Raleigh 2019 title, also placed second at the Six Invitational 2019 and Six Mexico Major 2021.
Current roster: JoyStiCK, Scyther, ShepparD, dan, Always
Most notable titles: Six Major Raleigh 2019, Pro League Season 9, European League 2021 - Stage 2, Six November 2020 Major - Europe
Approximate total earnings: $1,105,842
4. Team Liquid
Number four in the list is Team Liquid, the Brazilian team that has been in the scene since 2018. Quite a few changes have been made to the roster since the team's inception. Nesk, who was in the first roster, is still in the team. AsK and resetz joined in September 2021. AsK and resetz, as the youngest ones of the team, will undoubtedly try to push Team Liquid to the top and will want to have a great career.
Team Liquid has many achievements in Rainbow Six Siege. One of the team's latest achievements is also the team's biggest achievement. They lost to Ninjas in Pyjamas in the grand finals of the Six Invitational 2021, the last in the most prestigious Rainbow Six Siege tournament series, held in May 2021. Ninjas in Pyjamas started with a map advantage because they came from the upper bracket, and defeated Team Liquid 3-2. They also won the last Brasileirão 2021, where they faced Ninjas in Pyjamas in the final again. Despite falling behind, winning three maps in a row brought them this championship.
Current roster: nesk, Paluh, psk1, AsK, resetz
Most notable titles: Pro League Season 7, OGA PIT Season 3, Pro League Season 11 - Latin America, Copa Elite Six - Season 2021: Stage 1, Brasileirão 2021
Approximate total earnings: $1,121,179
3. G2 Esports
With a much fresher roster than the fifth and fourth ranked teams on the list, G2 Esports is in third place. CTZN and Virtue, the players who spent the most time on the team, joined G2 Esports in March 2020. G2 Esports has been in Rainbow Six Siege since August 2018, and has found many important successes.
A little further away from their former glory recently, G2 Esports claimed their last title in the GSA League 2021, beating Sissi State Punks 3-0. Unlike Team Empire and Team Liquid, they will not be able to participate in the Six Invitational 2022, as they did not succeed in the qualifiers.
Current roster: CTZN, Virtue, Kayak, Hungry, Jonka
Most notable titles: Six Invitational 2019, Pro League Season 8, Six Major Paris 2018, European League 2020, DreamHack Winter 2018, Pro League Season 8 - Europe
Approximate total earnings: $1,518,132
2. Spacestation Gaming
Occupying the second position is the United States team Spacestation Gaming. No one from Spacestation Gaming's first roster, which was founded in March 2018, is on the current roster. The two most recent additions to the roster are Hotancold and Skys. Skys and Hotancold had many successes together on DarkZero Esports. The duo, who played together for a long time, switched to Spacestation Gaming, accustomed to each other.
This has had a positive impact on Spacestation Gaming's overall performance. The team experienced its golden age in 2020. The Six Invitational 2020, where they won exactly $1,000,000, is an indication of this. They took the lead over Ninjas in Pyjamas, but Ninjas in Pyjamas won two maps in a row. A comeback then came by Spacestation Gaming and they won the championship with a wonderful 3-2 win.
Current roster: Rampy, Bosco, Fultz, Hotancold, Skys
Most notable titles: Six Invitational 2020, United States Nationals 2019, NAL 2020 US Division - Stage 1, NAL - 2021 Season - Stage 2, NAL - 2021 Season - Stage 3
Approximate total earnings: $1,543,500
1. Ninjas in Pyjamas
Here we come to the Rainbow Six Siege team with the most earnings. There is another Brazilian team in first place. Formed in June 2018, the team has barely destabilized its roster. Since the team's foundation, Julio, Kamikaze and Psycho have been on the roster. Muzi and pino joined this perfect trio in 2019.Julio, Kamikaze and Psycho also played together on Black Dragons e-Sports. Although they did not achieve great success at that time, they made it to the semi-finals of the Six Invitational 2018.
They are currently one of the best Rainbow Six Siege teams, not only in terms of earnings, but also in terms of performance. The championship that came with a 3-2 victory against Team Liquid in the Six Invitational 2021 final is in mind as if it were yesterday. Ninjas in Pyjamas, a roster that has been playing together for a long time, looks like they will make a name for themselves in Rainbow Six Siege esports with this roster in the future too.
Current roster: Julio, kamikaze, Psycho, Muzi, pino
Most notable titles: Six Invitational 2021, Copa Elite Six - Season 2021: Stage 2, Six August 2020 Major - Brazil
Approximate total earnings: $1,778,906
