The whole Rainbow Six Siege’s community is quite surprised by the Operation White Noise patch notes release. Ubisoft has done quite a good job of retaining and keeping the Operation Health still active, even it is finished. By changing that many issues as reported in the notes, the game’s health is heading the right way and Ubisoft kind of stands out among many other AAA developers. Those little things people care about are the ones that make big turnarounds.
First and foremost, let’s note that Operation White Noise will bring a lot of new content. However, there are some concerns regarding the new Operator, Dokkaebi. Dokkaebi’s Special ability will kind of hurt and break Valkyrie’s Special Ability. Valkyrie, having no appropriate counter until now, may finally start choking.
Back to the subject, a lot of changes that we weren’t even aware of have been changed. Bugs are being addressed and Maps are being changed. Not long ago, Ubisoft has announced the activation of Rainbow Six Siege Public Test Servers including Operation White Noise content. This means the Test Servers are now live and we can anticipate all of the changes on our own.
It is going to be Dokkaebi vs Valkyrie mostly, so players can get the taste of how’s Dokkaebi countering Valkyrie.
