With the Rainbow Six: Siege Challenger League winding down for Season 10, two teams have been granted qualification to next years Pro League; that being HomeLess and Rhythm. Although HomeLess had their spot locked in prior to the last playday, the same couldn’t be said about Rhythm, as they just scraped through with their draw against CryptiK in their last match of the Challenger League. 

The Challenger League kicked off on October 30th, with six teams battling it out in hopes of securing one of two spots for Season 11 of the ANZ Pro League. Season 11 of the Pro League will be HomeLess and Rhythm’s debut season, where both will be looking to gain as much experience and knowledge as possible, as they look to compete against the regions best.

Both HomeLess and Rhythm competed at the Melbourne Esports Open for the Six Masters against the regions best; with HomeLess being branded as ACME at the time. 

Season 10 Challenger League Teams:

  • Team CryptiK
  • HomeLess
  • Rhythm
  • Read My Aggression
  • Monkey Business
  • Team 53

The HomeLess roster had a dominant run through the Challenger League, only dropping a single map to their qualifying counter-parts, Rhythm, in week one of the league. With that being said, they also drew a map with both Rhythm and Read My Aggression, but nonetheless maintained one of the better runs in the Challenger League.

Results From HomeLess

  • 1-1 vs Rhythm (6:6 and 4:7)
  • 2-0 vs CryptiK (7:4 and 7:1)
  • 1-1 vs RMA (6:6 and 7:1)
  • 2-0 vs Monkey (7:0 and 7:0)
  • 2-0 vs Team 53 (7:1 and 7:3)

Rhythm also had a pretty clean run, but needed to secure at least a map draw against Team CryptiK in the final week to maintain the head to head and secure their place in the Pro League. With that being said, they did lose their first map of that series, but managed to draw the second map; ultimately securing their spot in the Pro League. Despite a tight qualification, nothing can be taken away from the team, as they had a solid run against all of the teams in the Challenger League.

Results From Rhythm

  • 1-1 vs HomeLess (6:6 and 7:4)
  • 2-0 vs Monkey (7:3 and 7:3)
  • 2-0 vs Team 53 (7:1 and 7:2)
  • 2-0 vs RMA (7:1 and 7:4)
  • 1-1 vs CryptiK (1:7 and 6:6)

Information about Season 11 of the Rainbow Six: Siege Pro League is yet to be released, but is expected to be in public view soon. Nonetheless, the ANZ Pro League now has all of its teams locked in for next season and will be set to deliver some exciting displays of competitive Rainbow Six; especially given the strong results from both FNATIC and Wildcard Gaming in 2019.
