ORDER, Australia’s leading esports organisation, is today making their entrance into one of Oceania’s fastest-growing competitive scenes, Rainbow Six Siege, by signing the former Okami LFO roster.
The team, formerly known as Okami LFO, is rated as one of Australian Rainbow Six Siege’s leading squads, having achieved top-two placements in both the Six Masters 2020 and the November 2020 Major. After consistent performance at a high level across a number of years, ORDER’s commitment to the team signals a positive step forward for both the players and the local Rainbow Six Siege professional scene.
“We are super happy to have the guys from Okami represent ORDER in Rainbow Six,” ORDER’s Chief Gaming Officer Chris “GoMeZ” Orfanellis said.
“At the start of 2021 we looked into a variety of titles to expand into and Rainbow Six really stood out, providing a strong system of growth and opportunity in Australia. We’re thrilled to be working with this roster and, with the added support and structure that ORDER offers, assist them in their pursuit of championships and becoming Australia’s best.”
The team will be competing in the Oceanic Nationals domestic competition in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the newly-formed APAC South league featuring some of the best teams in South East Asia. ORDER will be the only ANZ-based organisation in the eight-squad APAC South league.
They have their sights set on becoming the best team in both leagues, and qualifying for the Six Invitational in early 2022.
“For the past 12 months we have been fueled by only our passion for competing in Rainbow Six, we survived by not taking ourselves too seriously. Now that we’re being supported full-time, the focus is on continuous improvement until we hit the number one spot,” ORDER Rainbow Six captain Jack “JackDaddy” Dawber said.
“We’re very grateful to be able to represent Australia and dedicate ourselves to Siege completely thanks to ORDER.”
“To be able to represent an Australian organisation that the team as a whole has looked up to and respected for many years, has us extremely excited for the future,” ORDER Rainbow Six player Ryan “Speca” Ausden added.
“ORDER are one of the heavy hitters across top tier esport titles within Australia, so in essence I’m really happy we held off signing all this time. The wait has definitely been worth it to join an organisation of this calibre.”
