Based on Season 2020 and community feedback, Rainbow Six Siege has numerous updates to the Season 2021 Rainbow Six esports program:
- Elimination of draw: Instead of ending matches with a draw, from now on matches will be decided by a best of 3 overtime.
- Extended schedules: To make it easier for organizations to compete at both regional and national levels, organizations can now make available a total of 12 players, with up to 7 players registered to each specific roster. In addition, each roster must contain at least 5 players and be supported by its own coach. More information about this will follow later.
- Coaching time out: Coaches are given the opportunity to pause the match and discuss strategy with their players. More information about this will follow later.
- Standardized points system at regional level: A regular win is awarded with 3 points, while a loss is awarded 0 points. If the two teams compete until extra time, the winner will receive 2 points and the loser 1 point.
