You can feel a bit safer from griefers on Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege thanks to the latest 4.3 update.
The new patch came to PCs this week and will be rolled onto consoles on October 18th. It brings bug fixes and improvements to the network infrastructure that are designed to improve stability for all players.
Any player who kill the same teammate more than once will now be hit with standard team killing penalties. Ubisoft states these as:
- First Offence:
- Casual- Kicked from match
- Ranked- Banned for 15 minutes, 50% Renown penalty for 30 minutes
- Second Offence: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes
- Third Offence: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours
- Fourth Offence: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours
- Fifth Offence: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days
This update is also aimed at closing some loopholes involving the Caveira Interrogations. Previously players could quit part way through to interrupt the interrogation. Now, the player receives all the information regardless of whether players have left the game.
The full list of patch updates can be found here. It includes a statement from Ubisoft saying, “Today we will be updating to our latest internal network library. This upgrade does not come without risks, but is a pivotal steps toward having a more reliable service, as well as give us the tools we need to correct connectivity issues more quickly.” They continue, “While this update will not correct all connectivity problems right now, the update to our infrastructure is aimed more towards preparing us for the road ahead. You will see a reduction in connectivity issues in future patches as we continue to utilize these improvements to positively impact your gaming experience!”
You can see that they are taking their responsibilities to their customers seriously with the help of this 4.3 update.
