This weekend NerdStGamers and DarkZero are giving us a special treat. Its a full blown Rainbow Six Siege tournament offering play opportunities for both pros and amateur players.
Between March 11th and 14th, Siege players will get to participate and/or watch others play in the event… and for a pretty neat prize pool at that. A total of $50k will be split between the 20 teams participating in the event. It’s high-time too – there has been quite a lack of Siege tournaments recently… and this game will give people plenty to see.
Nerd Street Gamers x DarkZero Pro-Am Siege Tournament Info

As for the two headlining organisations – Nerd St. Gamers is an American organisation that aims to make esports accessible to as many people as possible. DarkZero Esports on the other hand is an American esports organization that was founded in 2018. They’re one of the premier R6 teams in North America.
