How are SI Points awarded?

According to the official Ubisoft Rulebook for the 2022 esports season, every regional league distributes 1560 SI Points. Majors also award SI Points, so it is vital for teams to qualify for these to have better chances to make it to the Six Invitational.

As each region is unique, the system is different depending on the regional league. 

North American League

SI Points in the North American League are awarded as follows:

  • 1st: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 2nd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 3rd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 4th: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 5th: 225 SI Points
  • 6th: 180 SI Points
  • 7th: 140 SI Points
  • 8th: 115 SI Points

European League

SI Points in the European League are awarded as follows:

  • 1st: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 2nd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 3rd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 4th: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 5th: 225 SI Points
  • 6th: 180 SI Points
  • 7th: 140 SI Points
  • 8th: 115 SI Points

Brasileirão, Sudamericano, and Mexicano

Unlike Europe and North America, the LATAM regional league is followed by a playoff with the four best teams in Brazil, the two best teams in South America, and the two best teams in Mexico. This playoff is known as the Copa Elite Six.

SI Points in the Copa Elite Six are awarded as follows:

  • 1st: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 2nd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 3rd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 4th: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 5th: 225 SI Points
  • 6th: 180 SI Points
  • 7th: 140 SI Points
  • 8th: 115 SI Points

APAC North and APAC South

Just like in LATAM, this region has a playoff after the conclusion of the regional leagues. The best four rosters from APAC North and the best four from APAC South qualify for the APAC Playoffs.

SI Points in the APAC Playoffs are awarded as follows:

  • 1st: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 2nd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 3rd: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 4th: 225 SI Points + Six Major qualification
  • 5th: 225 SI Points
  • 6th: 180 SI Points
  • 7th: 140 SI Points
  • 8th: 115 SI Points

Six Major

Finally, the Six Major. The best four rosters from each region meet in the Six Major, a sixteen-team competition. 

SI Points in the Six Major are awarded as follows:

  • 1st: 375 SI Points
  • 2nd: 300 SI Points
  • 3rd and 4th: 230 SI Points
  • 5th - 8th: 165 SI Points
  • 9th - 12th: 105 SI Points
  • 13th - 16th: 50 SI Points

How does the tiebreaker work in the R6 Siege Global Standings?

According to Ubisoft's official rulebook for the 2022 season, these are the tiebreakers used in case two teams are tied in the Global Standings:

  • Head-to-head record: The team that has beaten the other team more times will be placed ahead. This can be easily calculated if both teams belong to the same region. However, if the teams in question are from different regions, it gets a bit more complicated as there's the chance the teams haven't met internationally during the season. If that's the case, we move to the next tiebreaker.
  • Total Major Points: If head-to-head doesn't solve the problem, then Total Major Points is the next formula to decide who will be placed above in the Global Standings. This means that the team with the most SI Points obtained throughout the season's Majors will be placed above. If that doesn't solve the problem either, we move to the next tiebreaker.
  • Percentage of matches won in Regional League: The team with the highest win rate in Regional Leagues would win the tie.
  • Percentage of maps won in Regional League: If those three tiebreakers don't solve the problem, then the map win rate in Regional Leagues would also be considered.
  • Tiebreaker Match: If none of the previous formulas solve the tie, a Tiebreaker Match will be played. The winner of the match will qualify.
