Just three days ago, TSM FTX was crowned the Six Invitational 2022 champion after defeating Team Empire by 3-1 at the event’s Grand Final. Now, the North American organization has released two special items to commemorate the team’s international victory.
TSM reveals Six Invitational merch
TSM FTX announced earlier today that it was launching of two special items — a retro champions tee and a champions embroidered hoodie.
Keep in mind that this is a pre-sale, which means that the shipment may take some time. In fact, there’s a disclaimer in both items, asking users to “allow three to five weeks before shipping.”
Personally, the tee is the item that looks the best due to the retro style of the clean, black shirt. Also, the main colors of the tee are red, blue, and white, which are the colors of the United States of America — a cool concept since TSM is part of the North American League.
The second item is also a good one, a black embroidered champions hoodie with TSM’s logo and “World Champions” scrawled across the chest. It looks clean but maybe too basic for some fans’ aesthetic.
It is awesome to see big organizations designing special items for Siege! If you want them, you can follow the link in the tweet provided before.
What is TSM FTX?
TSM FTX is a North American esports team created in 2009. The organization joined Rainbow Six Siege back in June 2019 and made its international debut in Valencia’s DreamHack.
Despite finishing in fifth-eighth place in Spain that year, a victory at the North American Raleigh Major open qualifier granted the team a spot to compete at the event. Another fifth-eighth place was followed by the team’s first international silverware, as the side would win Montreal’s DreamHack.
It’s been all uphill since then. A third place at the Six Invitational 2020 was followed by various regional distinctions, as the team would win NA’s November Major and the NAL 2020 US Division Finals.
In 2021, TSM FTX started the year strong with a fourth-place finish at the Six Invitational 2021. However, the team finished in 13th – 16th at the Mexico Major as Bryan “Merc” Wrzek tested positive for COVID-19. The team had to play with coach Owen “Pojoman” Mitura.
Now, TSM FTX has won the Six Invitational 2022 to win the first international title for NA since Spacestation Gaming won the Six Invitational 2020.
