SCARZ and DPlus keep APAC's hopes alive

Since BLAST unveiled the new Rainbow Six Siege esports circuit, the Asia Pacific (APAC) region has been on the spotlight. While Europe, North America, and Brazil would send four teams each to the Major, APAC would send nine lineups alone.

So far, it has not gone well for the region. After the conclusion of the BLAST R6 Major Copenhagen Phase 1, all of the seven APAC representatives had been knocked out. It gets even worse for APAC when looking at the results against opponents from different regions — 0 wins to 13 defeats.

As a consequence, a big wave of comments and criticism hit the region. It was up to SCARZ and DPlus KIA, the two only APAC teams in Phase 2, to defend the region's pride. Unfortunately, both teams debuted with big defeats, with the Japanese falling to w7m esports (1-7) an the Koreans to Soniqs (7-2).

However, today, it was different. First, SCARZ were victorious against REVEN ECLUB by 8-6 on Kafe, a result that was followed by DPlus KIA's 7-3 win against Team Falcons.

Riku "REChaaN" Katou and Wqsyo1's performances were enough to prevent SCARZ from getting a second loss, as they got SiegeGG ratings of 1.23 and 1.20, respectively. With 28 kills out of the team's 49 against REVEN ECLUB, the deadly duo was key in their win against the LATAM League roster.

Meanwhile, Park "Woogiman" Jin-wook led the South Korean roster against Team Falcons with a SiegeGG rating of 2.02, a perfect KOST, a perfect entry balance of 4-0 (+4), and a K-D of 15-3 (+12).

Only Brazil can stop Brazil

Brazil's only loss in the second day of the BLAST R6 Major Copenhagen Phase 2 came in Team Liquid's defeat against w7m esports. It was the first time that Gabriel "volpz" Fernandes played against his former teammates since his departure from the bulls three months ago.

Precisely, the Brazilian couldn't find his best version against w7m esports as he finished with a SiegeGG rating of 0.64 and a negative entry balance of 1-4 (-3). Meanwhile, Lorenzo "Lagonis" Volpi was the best player at the blue cavalry with a SiegeGG rating of 1.22.

However, nobody could stop neither Gustavo "HerdsZ" Herdina nor Diego "Kheyze" Zanello, who averaged SiegeGG ratings of 1.21 and 1.17.

Early in the day, Ninjas in Pyjamas defeated the Brazilian-majority roster of M80, a win that was followed by FaZe Clan's victory against Spacestation Gaming.

Four teams can't afford another loss

After the first two days of the BLAST R6 Major Copenhagen Phase 2, four teams are already against a rock and a hard place. All of M80, MNM Gaming, Team Falcons, and REVEN ECLUB can't afford another loss; otherwise, they will be sent home.

So far, M80 have been the most disappointing of the four, with the Brazilian-majority roster falling to Wolves Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas by 7-8 and 3-7, respectively.

Despite the team's results, William "Spoit" Löfster has excelled for M80. Against Wolves Esports on Day 1 of Phase 2, the Swede was the best player of the match as he averaged a SiegeGG rating of 1.61 after getting 22 kills. Today, the former KOI player averaged a SiegeGG rating of 1.32.

Unfortunately, MNM Gaming are in a similar situation. The marshmallows have lost by minimal margins against FaZe Clan (5-7) and G2 Esports (7-8), which has put the European squad in a critical spot.

Finally, Team Falcons and REVEN ECLUB have suffered the biggest defeats of the four, with Team Falcons having lost to DarkZero Esports and DPlus KIA, and REVEN ECLUB to Team Liquid and SCARZ.
