Rainbow Six Siege will get a ban wave today ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

A recent Rainbow Six Siege exploit that allowed players to force a match quit by spamming certain symbols in chat was fixed yesterday. However, Ubisoft intends to punish those that made use of this exploit through a ban wave scheduled for later today. 

They made their intentions known in a Reddit post last night. "Beginning tomorrow, we will initiate a ban wave in accordance with the following section from the Code of Conduct," it read. The exploit's use constitutes "forbidden conduct," which the developer defines as, "Any conduct which interrupts the general flow of Gameplay in the Game client, forum, or any other Ubisoft medium." These actions lead to Disciplinary action in accordance with their Disciplinary Policy. 

Ubisoft didn't specify when the wave would take effect, nor how many players would receive a ban. However, they did say bans would be of varying lengths, determined by the "frequency and severity of the exploit’s usage.”

The developer plans to take a firmer stance against players that use exploits such as this to cheat their way to victory, promising sanctions on players that "deliberately take advantage of exploits to the detriment of the overall match."

Considering Clash, the latest operator in the game was discovered to have a very powerful exploit before she was removed to be reworked, it would be interesting to see if using her at the time will lead to bans as well. Since her fix and subsequent return to the game, another exploit has been discovered with her.
