Rainbow Six Siege now has a new patch that is bringing major changes. We know that now, when Ubisoft release a patch, it is always for major changes.
We are aware that there is a certain widespread sentiment that high level Ranked matches are often ruined by cheaters.We want to deter ‘witch hunting’ as much as possible. While there were legitimate design reasons to remove the Kill Cam from Ranked, we cannot compromise on the quality of our game experience. For this reason, we are enabling the Kill Cam on Ranked matches to remove this ‘hiding spot’ for cheaters. It will help the community as well as ourselves identify suspicious behaviors with a better level of certainty.
Other than that, we know have a report button on each profile. Seems like Ubisoft is having some countermeasures againts abusive players and cheaters. Along with that, custom games now have infinite overtime. To prevent the defence team sniping them in the opening seconds of a match, the attacking team’s spawn points have been tweaked.
We have altered multiple spawn positions and covers within spawning location areas in order to ensure that players spawning within them are protected from the Defenders. We believe these tweaks should fix the vast majority of those spawn killing occurrences. We will keep monitoring further to ensure that our spawn locations are safe for Attackers on all maps.
Clearly, Ubisoft is trying to make the game more fair for us and this is the main reason for this patch. Also, there are a lot of bug fixes. You can visit here for more detailed information.
