LeStream Esports announced it had dropped its Rainbow Six roster yesterday. According to team manager Robin “Robz” Planus, the decision was made due to the team's inability to join Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege Pilot Program. This is the developer's revenue-sharing program designed to be a collaboration with selected esport organisations in order to support the R6 ecosystem.
“...we want to explain in a few words why LeStream has decided to drop us : they did not get into the Pilot Program and, as such, have decided that the Rainbow Six roster does not belong in their Esport strategy anymore.”
The team has ended its time with LeStream in a strong position, despite current circumstances. In the six months since the roster was acquired, they have taken first place at TopAchat Cup #1, Gamers Assembly 2019 and Allied Esports Las Vegas 2019 - Europe Qualifier. LeStream also came second at Pro League Season 9 - Europe Major.
Now going by the name of “Looking for Org”, the roster presently consists of 5 players and 2 staff. LFO has declared itself “free agents” and is due to play at DreamHack Valencia. They have also secured a spot at the upcoming Six Major in Raleigh where they will compete against 9 teams for a slice of the $500,000 prize in August.
With all these accolades and a promising future ahead of them, LFO may not be free for much longer.
