Following an intense 2-0 series victory versus 🇫🇷 Helios Gaming in Lower Bracket Round One, Viperio continue their run in the 2021 Rainbow Six Siege European Challenger League, guaranteeing a Top 6 finish in the tournament, and a minimum of €2,500 in prize winnings.
The series, which was watched by over 5,000+ live viewers across multiple Twitch channels, was very close, with an 8-7 scoreline in game one, and a 7-5 round count in game two.
Viperio Founder & managing Director Christopher Sword gave the following comment:
“The Viperio 86 squad continue to exceed expectations with another win in the European Challenger League. The squad are only three series away from a shot at promotion into the European League (Tier 1), which is formidable considering they were competing in UKIN Division Two (Tier 4) at the start of the year. I wish the players and staff the best of luck in their upcoming fixtures.”
Viperio 86 now progress to the Lower Bracket Round Two, facing 🇫🇷 Reply Totem. The loser of the series will be knocked out of the tournament, and the winner will progress to take on the winner of 🇷🇺 Hellraisers vs. 🇫🇷 Acend for a shot in the Lower Bracket Finals.
Only two teams remain in the Upper Bracket: 🇫🇷 DeathroW, the team Viperio lost to in UBR1 (2-1), and the only other UK side, 🇬🇧 MnM Gaming. The winner of these two teams will be the first of two team to qualify for the EUL Relegation Series.
Viperio 86 versus Reply Totem will take place on Thursday 18th November at 8pm (GMT) / 9pm (CET). The match will once again be streamed from Ubisoft’s Paris studio on Twitch in a range of languages.
