The Snowball Esports MVP Award is back for Oceanic Nationals Stage 2 2021, with three fragging masterminds dominating the votes.
Rainbow Six is a team game at heart, but stand out individual performances deserve to be highlighted. That’s the core essence of the Snowball Esports MVP for OCN.
While support players deserve a mention for their unseen impact, in Stage 2, the fraggers were the ones truly shining. In fact, it was three in particular that were crucial to their teams’ success across the last two months.
Without these MVP players, their squads will struggle to replicate the results they had in Stage 2.
Our expert panel who voted on the MVP award can be found below:
- Brandon “Raven” Langiano: OCN & APAC South caster
- Michael “Guzz” Gurrie: OCN & APAC South caster
- Jake “Zenox” Brander: OCN & APAC South caster
- Rob “Manic” Munday: OCN & APAC South caster
- James “Devmarta” Stewart: OCN & APAC South caster
- Alex “Skye” McCallum: Caster and observer
- Andrew “Ducky” Amos: Snowball Esports journalist
Let’s get right into the nitty-gritty, and announce the winner of the Snowball Esports’ MVP award for OCN Stage 2 2021.
3rd: Bailey “Bailey” Murdoch (Order)
Order needed a solid rock to get their 2021 back on track, and Bailey proved to be just that in OCN. Stepping up into ItBeStyle’s shoes, the once-soft breach player took to fragging like fish to water.
Trading in Buck for Iana isn’t the easiest, but Bailey did it well. Now a reliable backbone for Order to build off from, he will be a key component if the veteran squad wants to contest for a title in Stage 3. Else, it’ll likely be lights out for this core of five as we know it.
2nd: Trent “Worthy” Rose (Chiefs)
The Stage 1 MVP had a couple of rough performances to start off OCN Stage 2, but by the time playoffs kicked off, he was back to his usual self. Worthy was dropping 10+ frag games like they’re nothing, finding multi-kills and winning trades like nobody’s business.
It’s safe to say that Worthy is now the best fragger in Oceanic Siege. Having gone back-to-back with Chiefs with two insane finals performances, it won’t be a surprise to see Worthy follow in the footsteps of Virtue and make a name for himself overseas.
1st: Jack “Jigsaw” Gillies (Bliss)
However, this is the season MVP, and one man stands out above the rest: Jigsaw.
The LFO fragger moved to Bliss in the off-season, and it only served to benefit both teams. He had instant impact, leading Bliss to six wins on the trot in the regular season with 3 MVP performances of his own.
While he couldn’t keep the invincible season alive against the Chiefs on Playday 7 — nor beat them to secure Bliss’ first bit of silverware in the Grand Final — Jigsaw proved to everyone why he’s one of Oceania’s best up and coming talents. His Zofia is practically unparalleled, and his average rating of 1.72 will be hard to repeat in future Stages.
