Earlier today, BLAST released information regarding the team's plans for the future of Rainbow Six Siege's esports scene.
The update included details about the tweaks coming to the Global Standings, the distribution of the SI Points, and the competition formats used in the regional divisions.
Here's everything you need to know about today's update!
Six Invitational Points Distribution
Heading to the upcoming season of Rainbow Six Siege's esports, we will experience a change in how the Six Invitational Points (SI Points) are distributed.
In 2023 we saw an abnormal quantity of SI Points given to teams for succeeding in their regions despite struggling internationally. Ubisoft is fixing this heading to the next season.
Regional competitions will award less points overall and the number of points awarded for each placement in regional competitions will be flattened with less difference in points earned from one placement to the next. Additionally, reaching the playoffs phase of a Major will be rewarded with more points, and placing amongst the bottom 8 teams of a Major won't be rewarded with as many points as the last season.
With the changes announced today, this is how SI Points will be distributed throughout the following season:
- 1st: 100 SI Points
- 2nd: 95 SI Points
- 3rd: 90 SI Points
- 4th: 85 SI Points
- 5th: 80 SI Points
- 6th: 75 SI Points
- 7th: 70 SI Points
- 8th: 65 SI Points
BLAST R6 Major
- 1st: 350 SI Points
- 2nd: 260 SI Points
- 3rd and 4th: 200 SI Points
- 5th to 8th: 170 SI Points
- 9th to 11th: 105 SI Points
- 12th to 14th: 65 SI Points
- 15th to 16th: 55 SI Points
- 17th to 20th: 45 SI Points
Major Spots Updated
In 2024, BLAST R6 Majors will have 20 teams instead of 24. This means that some regions will obtain fewer spots.
While Europe, North America, and Brazil still have four spots each, Japan and South Korea's number of spots has been reduced from three to two each. Meanwhile, LATAM and Asia's spots have been reduced from two to one each.
Regional Leagues Formats Updated
While the changes to the Regional Leagues are minimal, it's worth mentioning them.
Moreover, BLAST announced the starting date for the 2024 season: Rainbow Six Siege's 2024 esports campaign will start on Mar. 11!
Here's a look at what format will each division follow:
