Who was prepared for such a major upset so
early on in the League? While Beastcoast is most certainly celebrating their
victory, TSM and the entire NAL fanbase are stunned. It is safe to say that
nobody was prepared for the outcome of Beastcoast vs. TSM.
Beastcoast stunned TSM in a singular match
in Rainbow Six Siege's updated NAL, overcoming the odds and beating them 7-3. Beastcoast
had to fight out various tight rounds and experienced some close calls
along the journey, so the victory was not an easy one for them. Individually,
Joseph "Phozzo" Eisenmann and Charlie “rooty” Tran
delivered outstanding performances.
TSM won the NAL Finals in 2020 and is a
clear favorite for the 2021 Six Invitational; the organizers recently
rescheduled this for May. TSM is widely regarded as one of the top groups globally,
and many North American fans believe TSM is the best team across the globe.
Beastcoast, which nobody thought stood a chance against TSM, is a newcomer to
the NAL from the NACL, R6's second tier.
While this result could signal the beginning
of a "shift in power," it is too soon in the NAL to determine if
any group can try to overturn the best teams in the long run. TSM has an
impressive roster of high-quality talent, despite making a few uncharacteristic
TSM had to readjust and equip their squad
for a heated rivalry with XSET that took place March 31, while Beastcoast was
on a break. Hence, TSM needs to quickly readjust its' strategy so that it can
bounce back. However, Beastcoast has been given the time to let their win sink
in and come to terms with the shock they have caused. Do you think they can
keep it up for the rest of the League, or do you think they simply got lucky?
