The year 2023 is ending, but for Rainbow Six Siege fans, one big decision is still left. The finals of the Circuito Feminino (women's circuit in Portuguese) will take place on Sunday, December 26 - semi-finals - and the grand final on Sunday, December 3.
After four stages, E1 Sports, Solid MEC, w7m esports female, and Black Dragons Female fight for the title of the best female team in Brazil. The prize pool for the final four will be $20,000.
Looking back on the Circuito Feminino
The four stages of Circuito Feminino show a clear dominance of two teams that shared the spotlight in the competition - w7m and Black Dragons.
Stages 1 and 4 were won by Black Dragons, while Stages 2 and 3 were won by w7m. A story that is even more interesting if we consider that in 3 of the 4 stages, both teams reached the final of the competition.
The only Stage that broke this pattern was the first, but the story was similar. Black Dragons won the competition, beating Solid MEC in the final, but before that, in the semi-final, the team beat w7m.
This clash between the two goes further when, in the Brava Cup, an off-season tournament that was not part of the circuit, both also reached the competition's final with w7m prevailing.
E1 Sports, who joined the scene in Stage 2, and Solid MEC managed to be the most consistent teams in the spectrum of Black Dragons and w7m; however, they failed to upset the reign of these last two. Although left out of the finals, Clutch Master stands out as a team that put together good performances throughout the competition.
On one side, Black Dragons against Solid MEC, and on the other, w7m against E1. The LAN finals will reveal the winners of the best women's team. The individual highlights go to Julia "juu" Brito from Black Dragons, with an impressive 14 MVPs throughout the season, and Lucía "Luli" Campello from w7m, with 8.
The 2022 finals dictated a 3-0 Black Dragons over w7m. The question remains whether the story will be the same for 2023, but on the other hand, Solid MEC and E1 are teams worth underestimating in the fight for the title.
