Prior to becoming eXe.R6, the team was under the name of The Horde.
The Siege Of Katipunan: R6 Siege Pro-Am Tourney
The R6 team has just participated in a tournament prior to this announcement to which they gained 6th place, competing against known professional Philippine esports teams like Surge Esports and Sedna Esports.
The tournament was held in Buzz Katipunan, a premium internet cafe, on the 19th of January. A total of 16 teams participated for a total prize pool of 35,000PHP.
The team’s first match was a 7-5 win against Visionary 2.0, a well-known team in the local scene, which brought them to the upper bracket.
The next match was against Nephthys, in which they fall down to the lower bracket with the match score being 5-7. Another loss vs Legion Esports ends their tournament run with the same score of 5-7.
All the matches played were very close. As the team gets absorbed to Team eXecute, they will take this time to build better game sense and master teamwork, thus breaking into the local scene.
We look forward to what the new team brings. Let’s go eXe.R6!
