It was an incredible final moment for BDS:

BriD felt confident to check the stairs and put the series to bed. Even if he hadn't won the gunfight, 0Killz probably wasn't getting the bomb down. But it was a great showing from the relatively young Falcons.

How Much Did Team BDS win?

There was $2,000,000 up for grabs in the Rainbow Six Siege tournament's prize pool, and BDS took home $500,000. Every team in attendance got $100,000 each, just for qualifying, and then they earned this much in addition based on their placing:

Placement Prize

Team

1st$400,000Team BDS
2nd$250,000Falcons
3-4th$155,000WYLDE
3-4th$155,000Team Liquid
5-6th$80,000TSM
5-6th$80,000Spacestation Gaming
7-8th$40,000MIBR
7-8th$40,000DAMWON Gamin

For the Falcons to get knocked down into the lower bracket, but then go on such a deep run was impressive. They beat TSM, MIBR and WYLDE before facing BDS for a second-time in the Grand Finals. When it came down to the final match, however, the experience that Team BDS had helped them come through and clutch up for a devastating 3-0 finish.

At the end of the day, even with their incredible aggression, the Falcons couldn't go toe to toe against a fragger like Shaiiko. Team BDS looked pretty unstoppable by the end, in fact, and they'll be walking away with half a million for their efforts.

Sadly, that's all the Rainbow Six Siege we'll see at Gamers8, with the next two weekends being dedicated to PUBG: Mobile. But it was a great event nevertheless. You can find all the details you need for the upcoming Gamers8 events here.
