w7m esports lift the Hammer at Six Invitational 2024

The Rainbow Six Invitational 2024 has ended, and it has crowned w7m esports as its winner after a nail-biting Grand Finals against FaZe Clan. Here is a recap of the Six Invitational 2024.

w7m esports came into the Six Invitational as favorites after winning back-to-back Majors in 2023 and an SI Grand Finals appearance in the same year to boot. And with SI coming to Brazil for the first time in its history, they were undoubtedly also the crowd favorites.

However, the Group stage was tough for the Brazilian super-squad as they narrowly missed out on the first seed against Virtus.pro. And in the playoffs, they lost their first-round match against Wolves Esports in a close match, knocking them down to the lower bracket early.

w7m mounted a Lower Bracket run the likes of is rarely seen, with the last we’ve seen in G2 back in 2023’s SI. They ran through the Lower Bracket, meeting their European rivals from 2023 in G2 in the LB Semifinals, winning it handedly. And beating their Group Stage rivals in Virtus.pro at the LB Finals in a close match.

In the Grand Finals, w7m went against FaZe Clan in an all-Brazilian affair at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera. Even more so, it saw the two rivaling twin brothers, Felipe “nade” Ferreria in w7m and Thiago “Handyy” Ferreria in FaZe Clan, go head-to-head in the match.

The Grand Final was a back-and-forth affair, with FaZe winning the first map dominantly, but w7m answering back. After trading blows for four maps, both teams saw themselves at map five.

In map five, FaZe Clan took the lead early, gaining a 6-1 lead to put them at match and championship point. However, w7m mounted the greatest comeback Siege has ever witnessed to bring it all the way to overtime, and subsequently winning seven rounds in a row to lift the Hammer.

Rainbow Six Invitational 2024: Format

The tournament was divided into two segments, a group stage and a double elimination playoffs. 

The 20 qualified teams were split into four groups each containing five teams. All groups will be a round-robin, with all teams playing each other once. In each group, only four teams qualified for the playoffs, with the team at the bottom of their group being eliminated. 

Once all 18 teams have qualified for the playoffs, they played through a double-elimination bracket until a winner is determined. Teams were seeded into the playoff brackets based on their group stage placement. 

All group stage and most playoff matches were played as Bo3 matches, with the Grand Finals being the sole Bo5 match. 

Rainbow Six Invitation 2024: Teams and Players

Unlike previous SI iterations where teams could qualify through their regional qualifiers, 2024’s SI participating teams only qualified from the 2023/24 season’s Global Standings.
