Want to play Rainbow Six Siege? Here are the best tips on how to get started.

How to learn from professional Rainbow Six: Siege players and where to watch Rainbow Six: Siege eSports?

Another great way to learn is to watch some pros on Twitch/YouTube and keep up to date with the game’s eSports scene.

Prodigio Pete is a Youtuber who creates videos about Siege tips, tricks and news, and is worth following for further tips on getting started.

Once you’ve got the basics down, Pengu is one of the best Siege players in the world and streams regularly on Twitch. Be sure to tune in to learn more advanced techniques and plays from them.

In the years since its release, Siege has become one of the fastest growing eSports communities out there with over 320,000 viewers of the most recent Pro League on Twitch.

The Pro League is the main regular tournament format featuring teams from across the world. Each season of the Pro League plays out over six months with teams competing for a price pot of $275,000.

There are two other major tournaments (the Six Major and Six Invitational) and also a challenger league for grassroots players, so if you want to show off your skills and work your way up to play with the best, you can.

Despite how informative it can be to watch Siege eSports, the play is incredibly advanced and fast. So we’d advise getting a few hours under your belt playing online before you start trying to learn from the pros, as you’ll have a better understanding of what is happening.

The best way to stay up to date with results and upcoming games is through the ESL website, while you can watch every match live on the Twitch channel, watch full replays and highlights on the Youtube channel, keep up to date with all the news on Twitter and chat to others in the community about tournaments on Reddit.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
