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.
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, and many others.

|2021-09-05||GSA League 2021 vs. SSP|
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.
However, G2 Esports has missed the last two international events, a run that will be cut down on the Charlotte Major. All that international silverware in Berlin's offices is part of the past, and now G2 must forge its own path to become the present of the game once again.
Such an international draught has raised the question : Is G2 Esports still the best Rainbow Six Siege team in the world?
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.
