Rainbow Six Siege Update Means Insta-Ban For Teamkillers
There’s nothing worse than being repeatedly killed by trolling teammates. Thankfully, developers are constantly working to eliminate toxic behavior such as this within games such as Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft recently expressed that there are “no regrets” when it comes to bans given out to toxic players, and now the punishment for teamkilling in the game is becoming more harsh with the game’s latest update.
Up to this point the system in place with dealing with teamkillers has been fairly decent. Killing a teammates twice within a Casual match would result in the player being removed from the game. When playing in Ranked, players would not only be kicked out of the game but would also receive a 30 minute abandon penalty, which players normally receive for willingly leaving a Ranked match. The new system isn’t totally different, but it does come with more strict guidelines.
According to Ubisoft’s latest blog entry, “The team killing penalty for a first offense will be adjusted from a kick to a 30 minute ban. Initially, if a player was team killed in Casual, the offender was kicked from the match. The same situation in Ranked would result in a kick as well, but also triggered an abandon penalty. This was confusing because it seemed as if the team killing punishment was different between Ranked vs Casual.”
To make it a little easier to understand, they also included a full breakdown:
- First offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes
- Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 1 hour
- Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours.
- Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours.
- Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days.
The new teamkilling punishment system is yet another change in a long list which Ubisoft is implementing in an attempt to combat toxic behavior in gaming. This includes a recent change to the game’s in-game chat filters, as well as removing items and progress earned by cheaters.
