Ubisoft Bans Teamkillers In Rainbow Six: Siege Update

Coming tomorrow

Is there anything worse than a team member who keeps killing you? No? Well Ubisoft doesn’t think so either and they are addressing that issue, as well as many others, in the new Patch 3.4 that’ll be arriving for Rainbow Six: Siege on July 13th for all platforms.

The full patch notes were released on the official forums and the one update that stuck out most was the aforementioned ‘team kill ban’. For a game that relies on teamwork and the player only having one life per round, this is an incredibly smart move and will hopefully deter trolls and unsavory types.

The way the ban system will work is as follow:

  • First offense:
    • Casual- Kicked from match.
    • Ranked- Banned for 15 minutes, 50% renown penalty for 30 minutes.
  • Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes.
  • Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
  • Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
  • Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.

Ubisoft also added that “Duration of a suspension will be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case by case basis. After multiple offenses, the player may receive up to a permanent ban. Actual disciplinary action may differ from the list of examples depending on the severity of the behavior and, again, shall be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case by case basis.”

 

Also included in the patch is a tweak to ‘Pulse’ giving it better visibility, more reliable information and it’ll now be easier to read feedback. Featuring plenty of bug fixes too, the update will be available July 13th so make sure you’re shooting at your enemies and not at your friends.
