    Today Ubisoft revealed first details of “Operation Chimera” and “Outbreak Event”, the opening content of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year Three. Two new operators, specialists in biohazard situations and playable in adversarial multiplayer, will have to face a major threat in the game’s first co-op event, Outbreak...

    Maybe I should install R6: Siege again. Hope there is not some additional disappointment waiting for me in game.
    (Like stupid change to mechanics, Or pay-walled gameplay affecting content.)

    I've played it since beta and design-wise it's probably one of the best shooters ever made. The concept is relatively straight forward but the wall destruction mechanics and operator abilities add tactical elements that make it not only innovative but adds to the skill ceiling potential over more traditional shooters.

    That being said the game is riddled with technical flaws. The netcode was terrible, better now since the operation health update, but still significantly worse than other modern shooters. It took Ubisoft nearly two years to fix the matchmaking into a state that was workable. There are bugs galore - for example Ash's rocket failing to destroy walls/windows has been a bug since beta and still occurs. Shield operators are buggy often showing the shield in the incorrect position, mostly on the z-axis and ubisoft claims to have addressed it several times now with the issue still occuring. I still occasional clip through walls when rappeling. Countless other weird glitches and issues - and I think most of them are related to the netcode which they can't seem to fix for whatever reason.

    Despite those though I still find the game really fun and I'm glad it has such a large fanbase now, even in the face of ubisoft recently trying to kill it with the lootbox stuff - the actual dev team doing the content updates did a great job adding maps/operators and maintaining fairly good balance (sans blackbeard). I really hope they end up ironing out the rest of the issues.

    Wonder if we receive finally some fairly good map. They managed to remove almost half of them from ranked mode and gave us instead two absolutelly horrible Theme Park and Tower.

    Im another one that has played most nights from beta(mostly in a 3-5 man pre-made), pre-ordered all three season passes. I actually like Theme Park however Tower i agree with, its pretty bad. This game just gets better and better with every mid-season patch and year, unlike most games that launch with a high player population that slowly dies out RSS has done exactly the opposite! ... Started out with a really low player count from then its just grew and grew, only a few weeks back it hit a player count of almost 110k(this is tracking the Steam figures only)and i suspect it will continue to grow.

    Im proud to say i have been able to watch this game grow and evolve over the years from its release .... I have also enjoyed every second of it, best first person shooter released to date bar none in my opinion.

    Oh pretty stoked for Outbreak too.

    Hmmm..... this seems kind of out of leftfield for R6 (tactical realism and planning over twitching etc...) but I'm interested in checking it out nonetheless.

    I really hate playing glaz, looking through the scope that highlights everyone bright green, looking through a door way that the scope completely covers, dying while never seeing a soul or any spec of green, expecting the replay to show them killing you elsewhere, only to see the replace show whoever killed you, had gone into the middle of that doorway, and shot at me for half a second to a whole second, and they never, ever appeared on my screen...(this just happened the other day)
