The best — well, second best… maybe third? — competition is back. The R6 Memevitational aims to have a sane competition built of professional players and other personalities involved in the Siege community.
The Six Memevitational will be played between January 15th and the 16th. According to Derry “Dezachu” Holt’s announcement on Twitter, there will also be a studio broadcast.
The competition will see 10 teams in the competition, including last year’s champion FoxA’s Naughty List, Davide “FoxA” Bucci’s roster. The other teams, however, haven’t been announced… yet.
The Six Memevitational is a yearly competition created for the community. It is a strange but funny and incredibly joyful competition that involves some of the best Siege players and content creators. It also involves casters, so some of you will finally see how the voices of the game actually play it!
The maps used in last year’s edition were just the opposite of a professional competition map pool — it included maps such as Yacht, Presidential Plane, Hereford Base, or Stadium, the exclusive map released to celebrate the Six Invitational 2021 — the real Invitational, believe it or not.
Last year’s edition included a handful of the best players in the world, with the most known faces being in EU sad little man, a team that included Stijn “Hap” Hapers, Ghassan “Milosh” Finge, Fnatic’s content creator Tobias “BikiniBodhi” André, Daniel “Ferral” Rotheram as well as the one and only Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen.
However, the Danish, after representing EU sad little man, decided to leave the old continent to join their enemies in North America. As he confirmed in Dezachu’s video, he will be competing in 2022’s edition with an NA team.
“I would like to take this chance to apologize to absolutely nobody. The double champ does whatever the f*** he wants!” Pengu said.
The Memevitational also included more players, such as the eventual Mexico Major champion Lorenzo “Lagonis” Volpi, the Six Invitational 2020 champions Nathanial “Rampy” Duvall and Justin “Lycan” Woods, among others.
Overall, the Six Memevitational 2022 will surely be a fun tournament to watch. The competition mixes highly talented rosters with content creators, both of which play in some maps that can only be seen in casual playlists.
