Rainbow Six Siege Anti-Cheat Status Update May 2023
Ubisoft has just released its latest Anti-Cheat Status Update for Rainbow Six Siege. As part of their ongoing commitment to fair and competitive gameplay, Ubisoft has been continually enforcing BattlEye and Data Bans. Their update includes the most recent numbers for these bans, correcting totals from previous months due to a database update. Ubisoft hasn’t disclosed specific numbers in this update, but their steadfast dedication to battling cheats remains clear.
Ubisoft hasn’t been idle since their last update. They’ve bolstered the game’s security, making the development of cheats more difficult and tedious. While many of these improvements aren’t immediately noticeable to players, they are crucial for maintaining game balance and ensuring fair play.
Ubisoft temporarily disabled the MMR Rollback system following the Y8S1 release due to potential bugs. However, the developers have since resolved these issues, and the system is now up and running again. This feature is a crucial part of maintaining competitive integrity in Rainbow Six Siege.
The Y8S1.2 update saw the successful implementation of Mousetrap, a new system designed to detect input spoofing on consoles. While Ubisoft is proud of this achievement, they acknowledge the importance of continuously monitoring and adjusting this system as needed. Below you can find the details, as revealed by Ubisoft.
BATTLEYE & DATA BANS
For an overview on bans, we bring our latest BattlEye and Data Ban numbers, including data for 2023.
*Total bans from previous months have been corrected following a database update.
Since our last update we have worked to fortify our security behind the scenes, making cheat development more tedious. We have also fixed a number of cheats that were not player facing but affecting game balance.
MMR Rollback was temporarily disabled following the release of Y8S1 to avoid bugs in rollbacks. We have since resolved the related issues and the MMR Rollback system is now active.
MOUSETRAP – Input Spoofing Detection on Console
Y8S1.2 saw the successful release of Mousetrap on consoles. While we’re extremely proud of this milestone, we know that closely and continuously monitoring this new system remains crucial.
As we move forward, we are prepared to make any necessary adjustments to ensure that we maintain a robust, reliable, and fair detection and sanctioning system – this is a front we are committed to.
