In the history of Rainbow Six Siege, we have seen many powerful rosters. But, who is the best Rainbow Six Siege team?

When we think about this question, some teams come to mind. In Brazil, we could highlight many teams such as the Six Invitational 2021 champions Ninjas in Pyjamas, or the double-international champions Team Liquid. From North America, the Six Invitational 2020 champions Spacestation Gaming. 

Spoiler, it's none of them.

What is the best Rainbow Six Siege team?

It is not hard to tell — G2 Esports is the obvious answer.

G2's impact on the game goes beyond the server. Most successful organization in the game which creates some of the best content, and has signed some of the best players in the scenario. C'mon, they are the only team to ever build a dynasty in Siege!

The famous esports brand joined the Siege scene in Aug. 2018 and since then has won multiple international competitions, including the Paris Major, the Six Invitational 2019, the Six Invitational 2023, and many others. 

2018-08-18 Six Major Paris 2018 vs. Evil Geniuses
2018-11-18 Pro League Season 8 Finals vs. FaZe Clan FaZe Clan
2018-12-02 DreamHack Winter 2018 vs. PENTA Sports PENTA Sports
2019-02-17 Six Invitational 2019 vs. Team Empire
2019-08-18 Six Major Raleigh 2019 Finalist vs. Team Empire
2021-01-17 European League 2021 vs. Team BDS Team BDS
2021-09-05 GSA League 2021 vs. SSP
2023-02-19 Six Invitational 2023 vs.  w7m esports

Another reason to consider G2 Esports the best team in the game is the amount of great and impactful players who have competed for the European brand. Niclas "Pengu" Mouritzen, Fabian "Fabian" Hällsten, Daniel "Goga" Mazorra, Ben "CTZN" McMillan, or Juhani "Kantoraketti" Toivonen are just some examples.

If we keep focusing on the names that have represented G2 Esports and we close the circle to transfers, the team is possibly the best in it as well. G2 Esports is the only non-APAC team that has signed an Australian player, as Jake "Virtue" Grannan signed for the team in March 2020.

If that wasn't enough, G2 Esports is also the only European roster to have signed a player from the Brasileirão, with Karl "Alem4o" Zarth joining the team in March 2022.

Despite losing consistency throughout the years, G2 Esports have climbed back to the top after winning the Six Invitational 2023. However, some people still ask: is G2 Esports still the best Rainbow Six Siege team?

Is G2 Esports still the best Rainbow Six Siege team?

Despite the roster's recent results, we would say yes, definitely.

G2 Esports' impact in any competition is huge and goes beyond momentum. The Berlin-based organization is more than a brand in Siege, as playing for G2 Esports means something. In some way, playing for G2 is peaking in the game. Representing the team in any competition is one of the most notable honors a player can aim for in Siege if we put international championships aside. 

When players speak about the possibility of building a dynasty in Siege, G2 Esports' name is, possibly, in that sentence too. Even if G2 Esports has a bad season, you know it can bounce back. As of now, no other team has accomplished what G2 Esports has. So, until then, G2 Esports is going to be the best Siege team.

Who won the last Six Major?

The last Six Major of the season was the Jönköping Major, played in Sweden.

Team BDS won the last Six Major, as the French defeated Team Liquid by 3-2. This was the first Six Major Grand Final for both teams. 

Team Liquid's only losses in the competition came against TSM, during the group stage, and the French. Meanwhile, Team BDS had lost twice against w7m esports, and once against Spacestation Gaming.
