Rainbow Six Siege publisher Ubisoft has partnered with esports production firm DLC Studios to create a documentary following the rise of UK team MnM Gaming.
Earlier this month, MnM qualified for Season 10 of the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League, the top tier of competitive Rainbow Six, after winning the ESL Prem then going on to progress through the Challenger League.
The documentary (embedded below) premiered at 6pm GMT on Monday May 27th on the Ubisoft UK YouTube Channel.
It shows how MnM Gaming has gone from being an underdog to becoming the number one team in the UK, top of the European Rainbow Six Challenger League and now as the newest team to enter the Rainbow Six Pro League.
The documentary takes a look in to MnM Gaming’s history and talks to the players about their highs and low on their journey to the Pro League, as well as speaking to others in the scene such as caster Derry ‘Dezachu’ Holt.

MnM is one of very few UK orgs that have gone from grassroots UK leagues to the big time. For example, a few years back, Renegades Banditos progressed from the ESL UK League of Legends Premiership all the way to the then top level of competitive League in Europe: the LCS.
Production firm DLC Studios is headed up by MnM co-founders Kalvin and Daniel Chung.
