ESports – Rainbow Six Siege Stats: European League Stage 3 Overview
Top Four Teams to Qualify for Next Major
Rainbow Six Siege Stats: Following an exciting Berlin Major that saw Rogue claim the title, Stage 3 of the Rainbow Six Esports European League is finally here. The first round of matches has already commenced, with the second coming later today.
Welcome to some of the biggest eSports events in the world!
The first round of Rainbow Six Siege stats showed some excellent matchups and created fun storylines to follow for the rest of the Stage. First, Wolves kicked us off with a resounding 7-3 victory over the Outsiders. Next, rogue took a surprise loss to NAVI (Natus Vincere) but looks to bounce back against underdogs TT9.

Here are the rest of the results from the first round of matches:
- MNM Gaming (7) vs. TT9 Esports (5)
- Wolves (7) vs. Outsiders (3)
- Heroic (7) vs. G2 Esports (4)
- NAVI (8) vs. Rogue (6)

What is Rainbow Six Siege?
Rainbow Six Siege is an FPS playable on PC, PlayStation, and XBOX. Players compete in multiple game modes, such as rescuing a hostage, defusing a bomb, or securing an area designated area. Teams of five attack or defend while choosing from 54 different characters, called operators. The strategy within operator selection has drawn comparison to MOBA titles like League of Legends and DOTA 2, which also have numerous characters to choose from.
A unique feature of Rainbow Six, compared to other notable FPS titles like CSGO or Call of Duty, is the use of terrain. Namely, the landscape is destructible. Players can destroy terrain throughout the match, devising new ways to enter a building or gain the edge in a shootout. Let’s look further into the current Rainbow Six Siege stats.

Like the previous two Stages, the Rainbow Six European League Stage 3 will feature ten teams in a round-robin style tournament that will last nine weeks. After everyone has played each other, the top four teams will move on and qualify for the next Major and play against the other winners from the different regions.
The following Major is set for somewhere in Asia in November, but the exact location is unknown. The Majors are always one of the biggest esports events of the year, so every team will fight tooth and nail to lock in their spots.
Games to watch for Esports Betting
Every game is as important as the next for these teams; the same goes for people who want to bet on their favorite teams. The obvious tournament favorites will always be the safe bet to go with every week and eSports Battle Europa League is no exception.
- Wolves (+350)
- Team BDS (+350)
- Rogue (+550)
But sometimes its more fun to root for the underdogs who might just surprise you, especially after these first round of matches:
- MNM Gaming (+900)
- NAVI (+1200)
- TT9 Esports (+1400)
There are two huge matchups that all eSports bettors should be watching or at least keeping a watchful eye on. Included with the teams will be their odds, according to the bookies.
Rogue (-200) vs. TT9 Esports (+500)
TT9, former Team Empire, lost their first stage match against MnM Gaming, and we can’t say that TT9 played well. They won five rounds, which might look good, but it was MnM’s game to lose, and they showed up.
Rogue surprisingly lost against Natus Vincere on day one, but I wouldn’t overplay that loss. However, Rogue was by far the best team in Europe in the last stage, and I don’t see any reason they can’t emerge as the EU’s top squad this stage.
Whether Rogue will have enough time to rest and get ready for TT9 is a mystery, but I don’t see them losing against a squad that hasn’t come even close to achieving as much as Rogue this season. So this should be a very one-sided affair, with Rogue winning comfortably.
Wolves (+121) vs. Team BDS (-161)
Wolves taking down the Outsiders on opening day was one of the most exciting results of the day. So perhaps it wasn’t that surprising to see the Wolves win that match, but it was interesting that they won with four rounds to spare.
But I must mention that Outsiders have recently made coaching changes, so they’ll need more time to readapt. On the other side, Wolves were the top European team last stage, so it’s tough to take much from their victory on Monday.
Team BDS defeated Team Secret on day one, which was expected. Not because BDS is powerful but because Secret looks like the weakest team in the region.
Esports betting sites have priced Wolves and BDS at the same odds, suggesting that this will be a close match, and we can’t argue with that. However, there is almost no way either team outperforms the other, and from what we’ve seen from BDS and Wolves, this is anyone’s game.Follow us on Twitter
