Ubisoft axes R6 Pro League relegation in North America and Europe

Relegation has always been a contentious topic for the Rainbow Six Pro League, but it appears some divisions will be safe after season 11.

Ubisoft announced today it would no longer be incorporating relegations and promotions into the structure of the North American and European divisions of the Pro League in season 11. This has many fans speculating that the developer and league organizers will effectively be gutting the Challenger Leagues from these divisions going forward. The change also comes with an expansion of both divisions for season 12 from eight teams to 10 total in each division.

The Challenger League has given fans some of the best Pro League teams to date. Most recently, Natus Vincere worked their way up through the hellish European Challenger League under MnM Gaming and went onto win the season 10 Tokoname, Japan Finals. With a near endless flow of talent, some fans are understandably upset by these changes.
