German Rainbow Six Team Start Go-Fund Me After Organization Lets Them Down for DreamHack Valencia

A German Rainbow Six: Siege roster have been left in a touch position after ‘bad luck’ with their organization, prompting them to start a GoFund Me to try to attend the upcoming DreamHack Valencia.

The roster had been representing ‘1UPeSport’ since early 2018, and most recently managed a 3rd-4th finish at the Pro League Season 7 European Finals, but for unknown reasons it wasn’t enough to stay under the org. 

They also managed a top 12 placing at the Six Invitational in February, and were on a decent run of form with DreamHack Valencia coming up on July 17th.

However, surprisingly 1UP and the roster, which features Tom “Vale” Riedel, Jan “ripz” Hucke, Christian “PARAA” Can, Lucas “Hungry” Reich and Niklas “KS” Massierer, have parted ways with less than a month before the event. 

As a result, the roster, which certainly have a chance of a top finish at the event, have resorted to starting a GoFund Me, in hopes that fans will be sympathetic to their situation.

The team’s coach, Lasse “Lazzo” Klie did post on Twitter that the team was looking for a new organization to represent with the roster sticking together.

But on June 14th, player ‘KS’ tweeted that they would be unable to find an org in time for the event, and so a GoFund Me was their last option.

You can find the official GoFund Me page right here.

Dear donator,

We, the ex-1UP eSport team, are a German e-sports team that competes in the highest league of the Rainbow Six competition.

Since we have had a lot of bad luck working with organizations for the past few months and still want to play in the top league, we need you as a supporter.

We really want to show you what we are capable of. With the participation, we would not only represent the German community at Dreamhack but would also get the chance to win a slot at the Paris Major.

We need 1,100 € for the hotel, 1,500 € for the flights and 400 € for meals.

With every donation of 50€, we will print the name of the donator on the back of the T-shirt which we will wear on the Dreamhack.

At the time of writing, the team is currently a third of the way to their goal of €3,000. You can donate in any currency and GoFund Me will automatically convert it.

Rainbow Six Siege Halloween 2020: skins, leaks, Sugar Fright LTM, more

Rainbow Six: Siege has always been a game that keeps players on the edge of their seats, but it’s about to get a whole lot spookier to celebrate Halloween after a leak revealed we can expect a new LTM, cosmetics, skins, and more.

Rainbow Six: Siege is still chugging along after all these years. However, to keep things fresh, Ubisoft has spoilt its dedicated fanbase with new content. Other games have been focusing their next events around Halloween, and it looks like Rainbow Six: Siege will follow suit.

A Reddit user named Zer0Bytes found evidence hinting that an upcoming Halloween event is in the works. He shared all the details on the Rainbow Six: Siege subreddit.

Of course, nothing is set in stone until it becomes official. But he has built up quite a case to support his claims, and if it ends up being true, it looks like players will be in for a treat without any tricks.

Here’s everything we know so far.

Sugar Fright LTM

Rainbow Six: Siege’s Halloween event will include a new limited-time-mode called Sugar Fright. It appears to be some kind of kill-confirmed mode in which players will have ten minutes to kill enemies and hold onto an item.

The best part is, it’s all about total, non-stop action. Respawns will be enabled and players will have an unlimited supply of flashbangs, grenades, and smoke grenades.

Of course, to keep things in line with the spirit of Halloween, it has to include a creepy theme. Players will also automatically wear an eerie-looking puppet on their heads.

Sugar Fright LTM has been more or less confirmed by a leaker named Benjaminstrike, who showcased the mode on Twitter. It looks like the perfect balance between spooky and fun, which is what Halloween is all about.

Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics

Unfortunately, no Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics have been confirmed yet. However, it’s inevitable that they will in due time. After all, it’s how most games embrace the occasion, and Rainbow Six: Siege won; ‘t be any different.

Players can expect everything from pumpkins and candy to ghouls, monsters, and skeletons. Last year, the event included some awesome monster skins for Bandit, Doc, Ela, Frost, Kapkan, Lesion, and Smoke.

Start Date and Time

Until an official announcement has been made, it’s impossible to know what date and time the event will begin. However, since Halloween falls on October 31st, which is just around the corner, it can’t be too far away.

Until then, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and camp behind every door and corner to scare the wits out of your opponents.
