UK esports organisation MNM Gaming are continuing to add to their impressive history in Rainbow Six Siege, this time with a top showing in the European Challenger League.
MNM have progressed through to the Siege European League 2021 promotion/relegation tournament, where they will face relegated side Team Secret, who finished ninth in the most recent European League, and another team from the Challenger League to be confirmed.
Tenth place Heroic have fallen to the 2022 Challenger League.
MNM stormed the European Challenger League, finishing top of group A with three straight wins, before picking up another three straight wins in the playoffs against Acend, Totem and Deathrow (who they beat in overtime), to reach the European League promotion/relegation tournament.
MNM Gaming’s Rainbow Six team consists of UK players Yuzus, Tyrant and Neonical, as well as Croatian player neLo and Solotov, who is from Turkey.
After progressing to the European League relegations, neLo said: “It feels good. I know when Covid happened, not being able to go to LANs… LANs are the best thing you can do in this game or any other esports, probably. That’s my goal – to get back to that point where I can go to LANs and enjoy the game. I am back.”
The organisation (short for Molotovs and Marshmallows) changed their name on Twitter to Solotov and Marshmallows to celebrate their player’s performances.
Tyrant added on Twitter: “Wow what a game that was, everyone played so fucking well. GG Deathrow. Comeback geniuses.”
MNM Gaming has a strong history in Rainbow Six Siege, having played in the Challenger League in the past. Two years ago, former MNM Gaming UK players won the Rainbow Six Pro League Season 10 finals with Navi, after that organisation acquired them earlier in 2019.
