Fnatic R6 Looks To The Future

Fnatic R6 Looks To The Future

Published: 01 Apr 2020

With our Rainbow 6 team’s recent victory in Pro League ANZ Season 11, we have taken the opportunity to discuss with Fnatic’s R6 Coach & Team Director Jayden “Dizzle” Saunders about our vision for the future of the Rainbow 6 team, and update on our plans to continue to develop our team and talent into a world-class roster.

“As we conclude our region’s Pro League season in 1st place, we are ready to start thinking and planning for our upwards trajectory in the future of APAC and Fnatic R6.

We have big ambitions to be not just the number one team in our region, but a competitive team globally, regularly challenging for the biggest trophies available.

To achieve this, we are taking some big new steps in 2020, including creating a new boot camp facility and investing in our coaching structure. Both of which we will give you more information on as it develops.

With the flexibility to overcome the various roster changes we saw last year, we are considering continuing the 6th man/Substitute structure that has helped ease the process of onboarding players as these inevitable changes come to fruition. We’re actively exploring the option of recruiting another player to join our roster and help us continue our upwards trajectory.

Having a player that is constantly ready to participate if a roster change happens, a player becomes ill, or should any unforeseen circumstance develop has proven invaluable as we witnessed last year. We're considering options for the next ultimate player to come in and push for the starting spots. If the right talent is available then it would make sense to follow this path of proven success. Anyone in our 6 man squad will have a chance to play if they have the ability. “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

Places on our starting team go to the players performing best at the moment and in the current meta so every member will be expected to always be at their best to play.

That’s why we’re putting out the call for talented and ambitious players to prove they’ve got what it takes to be part of Fnatic and push our current squad for a starting spot.”

Interested players should ideally be based in APAC/ANZ and speak fluent English.
