NiP falls to FaZe in R6 Pro League season opener

After an impressive season 10 in the Rainbow Six Pro League, both FaZe Clan and Ninjas in Pyjamas were robbed of a fighting chance in the Tokoname, Japan Finals.

Today, these teams faced off in the opening matchday of season 11, and it looks like NiP may not be able to chase their season 10 record. 

Both FaZe and NiP had strong seasons in the runup to the season 10 Finals. Unfortunately, both of the Latin American representatives were forced to compete with substitute players due to last-minute visa issues. Neither team progressed nearly as far as they could have and it was a shame that NiP and FaZe fans had to see their teams take losses after such successful seasons. Prior to the finals, NiP had an excellent season with a record of 10-3-1, a record that seems very difficult to repeat after their opening match of season 11.

What looked like an almost certain draw between the two Latin American powerhouse teams just barely shifted the way of FaZe. Edging out NiP 7-5, FaZe took an early, but modest lead over one of the best teams in the division. While this is only the opening day, the implication is that NiP will need to pull out all the stops if they wish to achieve the same status as they did in season 10.
