Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege: Six Charlotte Major 2022 begins on May 16
First and foremost good news, following two years of live audience since the international event, the Six Charlotte Major will be available to the public for the Playoffs and Grand Final, which will take place from May 20 to 22. This implies that the stakes were never as high than ever before, thanks to the live crowd and the buzz.
The Six Major, which occurs at the end of each stage of the season, is one of the most important competitions on the Rainbow Six Esports circuit. After Raleigh in 2019, the tournament has returned to the United States. In the race to the Six Invitational 2023, the best 16 teams from Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America will battle for the championship, prize money, and points in the Global Standings.
Let’s take a look at how R6 May Major has shaped up

Six Charlotte Major 2022 Format
The Major will take place from May 16th through May 22nd. The playoffs round will be available to the public from May 20 to May 22, and at this stage crowds will finally fill the stadium for the live event.
The format will be the same as previous Six Major tournaments, with four double-round-robin, best-of-one map groups taking place from May 16 to 19. Despite objections during the Six Sweden Major, the 3-2-1-0 scoring system used in all regional events will be used in the group stage.
Groups & Teams
As always Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege esports scene is dominated by Brazilian squads. South America is still the king and the superfortress of Siege players:
- Group A will feature two APAC teams, Dire Wolves and Elevate, as well as NA squad Oxygen Esports and Brazilian Team oNe.
- Group B will feature two Brazilian teams: Current topdog Liquid and the FURIA, as well as XSET, which has Brazilian roots. CAG, an all-Japanese side, is the only roster without Brazilian roots.
- Group C has EUL, leading Heroic as well as late comers G2, Brazilian w7m which came in second after losing to Liquid in Copa Elite Six 2022, and DarkZero Esports.
- Group D will have Astralis, BDS, LFO, and Chiefs.

Since there are 24 matches in total in this gigantic event we will drop highlight matches that should be looked at, for more visit the tournament page and you access the whole tournament’s matches:
- Heroic vs. G2 Esports(May 16, 2022 - 23:20 UTC+3) 1.65 vs. 2.10
- CAG vs. XSET (May 16, 2022 - 20:20 UTC+3) 1.95 vs. 1.75
- G2 vs. w7m esports (May 19, 2022 - 00:45 UTC+3) 1.85 vs. 1.85
Group C is undeniably the Major's "group of death," with Heroic and w7m both topping their regional leagues, G2 marking their international debut with their newest roster which topples all expectations, and DarkZero hoping for their first title in their ninth consecutive global tournament. All four of these teams have a good shot at winning the Major.
While the group has several well-known names, only one of the four teams, DarkZero, has previously played on a worldwide scale, with the other three either recently founded or never having reached this level of competition. This signifies that the group is actually a wildcard on its own.
G2 versus w7m should not be missed since they are head-to-head skillswise and betting odds, which will result in a very back and forth match. W7m were the second only to Liquid before coming out of their region and G2 almost got late to the party but managed to fight their way into the Major. They will also face the leading EUL team Heroic and if they manage to beat them they may very well change all the expectations for the European region.
In Charlotte's group B, CYCLOPS will be wedged by three Brazilian squads. CYCLOPS will be hopeful that the fifth time is the charm with their new Japanese roster, since they have not to exit the global group stage in their three years of attempting. Overall their matches with XSET have higher stakes than any other match in the tournament and ought not to be missed.
