Rainbow Six Siege

Although Tempo Storm came into the match in the lower bracket, the matchup couldn’t be taken lightly for the Soniqs. With relegation implications on the line for the losing team, the Soniqs needed to beat Tempo Storm to secure their spot in the National American League for the next year. With a rocky start to Stage 2, having dropped the first two matches against DarkZero and eUnited, the Soniqs couldn’t make any major mistakes against Tempo Storm.

The first map was Oregon and the Soniqs eventually pulled off a 7-5 victory over Tempo Storm despite a close match between both teams. With the victory, the Soniqs moved on to face Tempo Storm on Kafe Dostoyevsky where things heated up for both teams. Starting on defense, the Soniqs developed a 4-1 lead over Temp Storm but slowly let the lead slip away. The map went to overtime between both teams and the Soniqs put together two big rounds to take the 8-6 victory.

After beating Tempo Storm, the Soniqs are safe from relegation until next year. Up next, the Soniqs face Disrupt Gaming on Nov. 12.
