Ubisof has revealed the list of esports organisations selected to be a part of R6 Share, Rainbow Six Siege’s revenue share program.
There are 42 altogether and several have UK connections – including Fnatic, Na’Vi, G2 and others that we’ve listed in full below (thanks to Craig Robinson for the intel).
R6 Share consists of three tiers, with different orgs in each one. Ubisoft says orgs will be assessed every three months and ranked against other teams in their tier on a set of criteria: the performance of their in-game items, viewership of their matches, support provided to their players, and the performance of their communications around Rainbow Six.
Tiers will be adjusted once a year starting in August 2021, with orgs being promoted and demoted to different tiers ‘to more accurately reflect their performance in Rainbow Six Siege’.
Tiers and ranks will determine what level of support an organisation receives, as well as the amount they will earn from the performance pool.
The revenue share details
R6 Share guidelines ensure that:
- For every team-branded item sold, the R6 SHARE organisations will receive 30% of the proceeds from their respective team-branded items. And, 30% of the organisation’s revenue share will contribute to the organisation’s players and content creators.
- For every regional league set sold, 30% of the net revenue will be split four ways between Tier 1 organisations, Tier 2, Tier 3 and a Performance Pool.
- For each Six Major starting with the Six November Major, an Operator bundle will be produced. 30% of the net revenue from these items will contribute to the prize pool of the corresponding Six Major event.
- Road to S.I. Battle Pass: 30% of the net revenue from the Road to Six Invitational Battle Pass will go towards the Six Invitational prize pool.
- For revenue generated by the Six Major items and the Road to S.I. Battle Pass contributing to the respective prize pools of those events, if a team wins part of that prize money in the competition, then 70% of this prize money will go to the players and 30% to the organisation.
