Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 patch adds match cancellation and balance

Avatar

Published

on

The Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 patch just went live for players to enjoy, bringing long-awaited features and operator balancing changes. Games like R6 always look for unbalanced characters and bug fixes. This time, Melusi, Hibana, and Ace see changes. Ubisoft used players’ feedback to spot issues to solve and remove overpowered mechanics.

Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 Patch

Operators

Developers made some changes to Hibana and Ace to prevent unfair advantages. Before this update, they could use their explosive devices to destroy gadgets from the other side of a wall. This mechanic resulted in players rushing through traps too fast and easily. With this, Hibana and Ace’s gadgets will be unable to remove enemy gadgets through reinforced walls when used on a floor.

Melusi also saw nerfs soon after her launch with her Banshee gadgets too strong. Its penalty zone was reduced by 33% while its critical range penalty radius has been decreased from 3m to 2m. In addition, its max range penalty radius went from 6m to 4m. These changes make her less of a must pick but fairer for players to face.

Maps

For a game like Rainbow Six Siege where timing is crucial, an unbalanced map can lead to disaster. On Oregon, there was a pixel peek from 2F Door Hall that needed work. In addition, at Theme Park, some areas of the map were not supposed to be reached.

Eight maps saw bug fixes including Oregon, Bank, Consulate, Kafe, Chalet, Clubhouse, Theme Park, and Coastline. Players can look at the official Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 patch notes to see all map changes.

Gameplay

But what players really wanted in these Rainbow Six Siege patch notes was the new match cancellation feature. Before this update, if someone quit the match, players could do nothing but keep playing or surrender. An unbalanced game of four versus five continued. Now, the team with fewer players can leave an unbalanced queue without any form of punishment.

The latest Rainbow Six Siege Y5S2.1 patch notes addressed many bug fixes and unbalanced gameplay. This update answers many issues that players complained about. From being forced to play with player disadvantages to face trap resilient characters, Rainbow Six Siege players had to tag along. Ubisoft listens to the community and now offers a more balanced game. R6 match cancellation is a feature everyone needed that’s finally here.

How to complete “Request The Boss show your army how to really fight” in TFT

Teamfight Tactics’ fourth Set, Fates, only went live a couple of days ago and introduced new champions, traits, alongside mechanics. A new ranked season also kicked off, and Riot also added new seasonal passes filled with new quests.

Considering the patch added a new Star Shard System, arenas, emotes, and so much more, questing has suddenly increased in value. Completing all the tasks will get you one step closer to unlocking whatever reward you’ve been eyeing, but some quests can look a lot tougher than they look.

What does Request The Boss show your army how to really fight” mean in Teamfight Tactics?

Image via Riot Games

This is one of those quests that makes you re-read it more than two times. The wording is a bit complicated, and it’s hard to figure out what exactly you need to do to get the quest done.

Though it doesn’t look that way, you can complete this quest by just placing Sett onto the board for only a single round. He’s The Boss, after all, and he needs to be played so he can teach your army how to “really fight.”

If the quest doesn’t get completed for some reason, keep him on board as much as possible. Try getting him to two-star or winning a round with him, basically anything that will maximize your interaction with Sett should allow you to complete the quest if keeping him on the board for a single round doesn’t work out for you.
