Invictus Gaming drops roster and leaves Rainbow Six Siege — SiegeGG
Invictus Gaming Today announcement their departure from Rainbow Six Siege entirely and released their team with immediate effect, one week before the start of Stage 3.
This follows the departures of Invictus coach Ellis “GiG” Hindle, star player Matin “SpeakEasy” Yunos and rookie player Jack “Jigsaw” Gillies.
It also comes just days after the ESC leaders also left the scene and their team disbanded.
Chinese organization Invictus had joined the scene in Stage 2 of the 2021 season with the signing of the former Giants Gaming roster. Their team qualified for the Mexico Major and the Sweden Major, but failed to make an impact at either event.
The organization embarked on an ambitious “super-team” project ahead of the start of the 2022 season. But the team only managed a fifth-place finish in APAC South in Stage 1, then a fourth-place finish in Stage 2 before the series of personnel departures before Stage 3.
The former Invictus roster will therefore be looking for a new organization to represent, although it may have special dispensation to play without one as were the former TrainHard roster, the LFO (now Wolves Esports) roster and the mantisFPS roster (now SANDBOX Gaming).
The remaining three players on the team will also appear to be sticking together, with Jeremy “HysteRiX” Tan teasing new Malaysian and Australian players.
Stage 3 of the APAC South Division is set to begin likely next week, with the EUL set to begin on September 12.
