Update: Vexed have been disqualified from the finals.
The four teams have now been decided for the Rainbow 6 Siege ESL UK and Ireland Premiership LAN finals.
In group A, Vexed and 1UPesport took the two LAN spots.
Vexed topped the league with a 10-2 map lead, with an impressive +331 round difference.
1UP had a close call in standings as they went 7-5 in map points, but it was enough to get them through as the second team in group A.

On the Group B side, it was Team Enyx and Radix Esports who claimed the LAN final slots.
Enyx pushed the first LAN spot of the group quite easily with a 10-2, lead and another huge round difference.
On the other hand, the final week of regular play witnessed a great battle between Radix and Xenos.
As it stood, Xenos held the second LAN slot, with Radix just trailing behind. All it took for Radix was to go 1-1 and win off the round difference as Xenos was -2, whereas Radix was -1.
At the start of the match, Xenos looked to secure their spot in the LAN finals. Xenos went 3-0 but were then reverse swept by Radix on Oregon. On Border, Radix solidified their spot in the LAN with a great 5-2 victory.
This means that Vexed, Enyx, 1UP and Radix will go to the LAN finals at ESL Leicester’s studio on March 10th-11th, to determine the winner of the inaugural Rainbow 6 Premiership.
