This, then, would have collaborated with the huge amount of promotion and communication Ubisoft was doing at the run-up to the new update, which included all up to and including a massive, live unveiling in the Six Majors tournament in August. Additionally, Rainbow Six Siege Credits would have caused problems with the season pass, as taking content away season pass gamers had paid for would have caused a possibly even larger uproar compared to matchmaking problems due to
This ordeal has convinced Ubisoft to alter updates are handled for the game. Content upgrades, such as a new season, will now be unrelated to the bigger backend changes, like the optimization which caused all the problems, allowing elements of the match to be rolled back without affecting game content, if a similar problem arise in the future. Even though this might not alter how players encounter Siege much, it should provide a massive amount of equilibrium to the game and permit problems to be identified and adjusted much, much faster.
Ubisoft's attempt to make the game more accessible for newcomers has taken a massive leap forward with the launch of R6 Academy: a tool to help players understand in all levels of play, driven by community content creators. It's not unlike the games such as Dota 2 crowd-sources guides throughout the Steam community, except it's an independent hub that is different in the sport, Uplay, or even some other individual platform. This is intended to be of use to all Siege players, whatever they play with it on.
Videos can be sorted by whether they are about maps, operators, updates, or tips for novices and veteran players. There is also a strategy in place, to help discern which videos are thought to be useful by the community. But it doesn't seem like which operators and maps can be filtered nevertheless, meaning it may prove difficult to locate decent manuals on certain, less popular areas of the game in the long term.
