Match commentary comes from Demo and Ace of Pyrite (check out our interview with Demo from the Paris Major earlier in the year here):

Last month, ESL UK and Ubisoft announced they were teaming up to bring more Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege action to the ESL Premiership powered by Intel.
They confirmed two more seasons exclusively on PC, moving on from Siege’s first ESL Prem on Xbox One.
The new winter season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege competition launched last month, with another season following in spring 2019. The winter season sees eight teams competing for a £10,500 prize pool.
So far, Team Secret are leading the pack at the top of the table with 10 points, leading Guidance, Unnamed and Vexed who have 9, 8 and 8 points respectively.
Barrage, Wind and Rain and Horizon Union are at the bottom with 2 points, none and none respectively. But it’s MnM Gaming that have had a surprising impact with a roster that’s new to a tournament of this structure – they have 6 points and drew with favourites Team Secret in week 1.
Here are the current standings after week 4:
