Esports: The Rise of ELEMENT ONE and Arial Arise

What is Esports?

esports are organised competitions featuring video games played for money. These competitions are typically broadcast live and online and are supported by a significant upfront investment in video game content.

ELEMENT ONE, the new regional Tier 2 Rainbow Six Siege circuit for North America, kicked off June 16 with two sets of open qualifiers to determine which teams will join eight invited ones in the Alpha Stage. The tournament will feature a 16-team Swiss System format feeding into an eight-team single elimination bracket.


In the last few years, the world has seen tremendous advancements in synthetic diamond production and its applications in a variety of fields including optics, mechanical, electronic, sensing and quantum information processing. This has been made possible thanks to the development of new technologies, notably high pressure hydrothermal synthesis (HPHT). This technology has also enabled more efficient and cost effective mining, with less environmental impact.

ELEMENT ONE is the brand new official online Tier 2 Rainbow Six Siege tournament for North America, presented by Ubisoft and produced by Nerd Street. The tournament starts this Friday (June 16) with the first of two open qualifiers, with the top 12 teams from each qualifying into an eight-team closed qualifier. Each qualifier will follow a Buchholz Swiss bracket, with teams needing to win three matchups in order to advance to the next phase. All of the games will be best-of-one, except for promotion and elimination matches.
