Y6S2.2 DESIGNER'S NOTES

In this latest edition of Designer’s Notes, we’ll go into more detail about the balancing changes that’ll come with the Y6S2.2 patch and give you an insight into the reasons behind these changes.

BALANCING MATRIX AND TOP OPERATOR BANS

WIN DELTA VS. PRESENCE

Please note that we are using presence to gauge the popularity of an Operator. This notion had to be introduced to reflect the implementation of the pick & ban.

Presence definition: pick rate of an Operator when not banned. Win Delta: The Win Delta is aggregated from Operator’s Win Deltas per Bomb Site.

OPERATOR BAN RATE

OPERATOR BALANCING

ALIBI
  • Added 2.0x scope to ACS12 (removed 1.5x scope)
  • Added 1.5x scope to MX4 Storm

Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Despite having a solid mix of utility, including a solid primary weapon and secondary shotgun, deployable shield and impacts, and high speed, her presence in the Balancing Matrix is still low. By changing up her scopes, the intention is to open up new role opportunities for her.

In particular, this should make Alibi more viable in roaming scenarios and appeal to players who are more frag-focused.

FROST
  • Removed 1.5x scope from C1
  • Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

In her current state, Frost has the highest win delta of all the Defenders and possesses a very high kill/death ratio when compared against other Defenders. To prevent her from holding longer angles as comfortably and bring her more in line with other operators, we have removed the 1.5x scope from her C1.

This isn’t the only piece to the Frost puzzle, though. We know that her Welcome Mats play a role in her overall strength, but want to first understand the role her gun plays before deciding if it will be necessary to shift focus to this utility. As such, we will be keeping a close eye on her updated performance over time.

TACHANKA
  • Added Deployable Shield (removed Proximity Alarm)
  • Increased Shumikha Launcher total ammunition to 14 (from 10)
  • Improved DP-27 destruction:
    • 0 to 4.99m: 0.3 radius hole per shot
    • 5 to 7.99m: 0.2 radius hole per shot
    • Beyond 8m: 0.2 radius hole after three shots

Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Playing Tachanka should be a blast, but as it stands he has a very low presence in the Balancing Matrix. One of the reasons for this is that his Shumikha Launcher tends to be quite situational and can be unsafe to fire since it renders him defenseless. In addition to increasing its total ammunition to encourage more active usage, Tachanka now has a Deployable Shield which will offer him more protection when using the launcher.

That’s not the only improvement Tachanka’s received to his destructive capabilities. His DP-27 is also capable of making larger holes per shot at mid-range which, when combined with the added protection of his Deployable Shield, should make him a more fearsome anchor.

ZOFIA
  • Modified M762 recoil, harder to control.
    • Vertical recoil increased
    • Horizontal spread will be stronger to the the left
    • Long burst recoil will start on the 8th bullet (was 12th)

Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Looking at the Balancing Matrix, Zofia continues to have a very high presence, which is due in part to the high fragging potential and ease of use of her M762. In order to bring her more in line with other operators, her M762’s recoil has been increased making it harder to control. This comes in the form of increased vertical recoil and more of a horizontal spread to the left.

What’s new about this approach (and something we’d love your feedback on), is that while the horizontal spread will be stronger than other guns, it will be more predictable and with much less randomness. This means that while it will initially be harder to control, it should be possible to master the recoil pattern over time.

Since this will require a greater degree of control over her shots to secure frags, we expect Zofia to be less of an all-around pick who has both a strong, easy-to-use primary weapon and useful gadget. Her gadget will continue to be a draw, but those looking for a more easy to use frag-focused Attacker will find Ace, Sledge, and Iana more enticing options.

NØKK

Following experimentation on the Test Server, we’ve made the decision to put Nøkk’s balancing rework on hold.

Our initial objective with this idea was to expand on the player experience of being invisible, making her more useful in a wider range of situations by addressing how her utility interacts with recent gadget and ability additions.

With her existing kit, Nøkk is already a difficult operator the detect. She is invisible to cameras, and she doesn’t make noise. If we were to add another invulnerability to detection, it would require removing something from her kit. No operator should be able to reach the bombsite totally undetected, after all.

Most recently, we tried removing the HEL Presence Reduction’s ability to muffle sounds, but found players missed this noise reduction more than they liked the immunity to proximity detectors that replaced it. This makes sense, as muffled sounds have more universal utility, whereas proximity immunity’s usefulness depends on the Defenders’ team composition.

On top of this, we feel that players should always be able to trust their gadgets. By adding this experimental immunity to proximity detection, it made a wide range of additional utility feel unreliable, which we want to avoid.

As a result, we’ve decided to put these experimental changes on hold and stick with the Nøkk you know and love as we explore other possibilities for the future.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to test out this change on the TS and shared constructive feedback with us. It’s hugely appreciated and helps guide future changes that you will truly enjoy playing with!

WEAPON BALANCING

ACS12
  • Increased damage to 69 (from 59)

Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

In its current state, the ACS12 has a very low pick rate. Especially when compared with the ALDA and Mx4, the ACS12’s fragging potential was more limited, so we have increased the damage of its shots. This should help to bring it more in line with its contemporaries and make it a more viable option.

Note, this change does not affect damage drop-off values, which will remain the same.

TCSG-12
  • Increased damage to 63 (from 57)

Population targeted by this change: Casual, Top Ranked and Pros.

Similar to the ACS12, the TCSG-12 has a very low pick rate. In order to make it a more viable option, its damage has been increased.

With Goyo and Kaid already being viable operators, this is not intended to further increase their fragging potential. The increase to damage, while a step up from where it was previously, brings the TCSG-12 to a state that is still weaker than it was at release. This should help keep it in balance while still offering options when it comes to selecting their loadouts.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Maps Return To Game After Being Removed In April

It’s strange enough that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare got a couple of new maps this far into Black Ops Cold War‘s lifecycle. To make things even weirder, the two maps were originally added back in March, but then removed in April to spend more time in development.

Now, though, Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage are back, probably for good (although we can’t be sure). Al-Raab Airbase is a 6v6 map that’s currently featured in a 24/7 playlist, while Drainage is a 2v2 Gunfight map.

When the two maps were added back in April exclusively to private matches, they took players by surprise. Seemingly just as suddenly, they were stealthily taken offline in April. Activision later explained that they were released prematurely and needed more work.

It’s pretty unusual for Activision to continue to support older Call of Duty titles with new content, but this might be indicative of the continuing popularity of Modern Warfare. Of course, Black Ops Cold War is still receiving the bulk of the attention, and you can check out what’s new in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone here.

Best-Selling Games And Systems Of May 2021 (US): Resident Evil Village Leads The Pack

The NPD Group has released its latest monthly report for the US video game industry, revealing which games and consoles sold the best during May 2021. The report also covers how well the industry overall performed during the month.

Here are the big takeaways, including Resident Evil Village leading the pack.

Overall

Total spending on games in the US during May 2021–spanning hardware, games, and accessories–rose by 3% to $4.5 billion. Year-to-date, meanwhile, spending rose by 17% to $24 billion. These are both year-over-year comparisons.

Hardware

For game consoles, total spending on hardware rose by 5% year-over-year to $244 million for May 2021. Spending on hardware year-to-date performed even better, jumping by 36% to $1.9 billion so far in 2021.

The Nintendo Switch was once again the top-selling home console in the US during May 2021, outperforming the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S systems (which remain difficult to find in many places).

The Switch was the top-performer both in terms of total units sold and dollars spent for both May 2021 and year-to-date.

Games

Shifting to games, total spending on software for May 2021 rose to $4.06 billion, which was up 3% year-over-year. Year-to-date, spending on games surged by 15% to $21 billion.

Resident Evil Village was the month’s best-seller overall, and it quickly became the second best-selling game of 2021 so far. Capcom is discussing Resident Evil during an E3 showcase today.

MLB The Show 21, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, New Pokemon Snap, and Mortal Kombat 11 rounded out the top five for May 2021.

SIXTH GUARDIAN PROGRAM Y6S2: STACK UP

Throughout Year 6 Season 2, we are excited to continue the Sixth Guardian Program[news.ubisoft.com]! The program aims to support a charity via the sales of an in-game bundle which is available throughout the entire length of a Season, with 100% of net proceeds (with a minimum of $6 USD per bundle sold) going to the charity. Your purchases will help to directly support a charity and help a diverse range of causes. Together, we hope to unite the Rainbow Six Siege community and make a positive change outside of our game.

The program’s inaugural run, with Y5S4’s Doc Bundle, proved very successful, resulting in over $170,000 USD raised for AbleGamers Charity[ablegamers.org]. We thank the great folks at AbleGamers for the wonderful partnership, and hope to find opportunities to work with them again in the future!

This Season, we’re releasing the "Valkyrie SG" bundle. All proceeds will go towards Stack Up[www.stackup.org], which is a wonderful military charity supporting active and veteran service members from the US and allied nations by promoting positive mental health and combating veteran suicide through gaming.

This bundle features a full Valkyrie set with Stack Up’s signature red coloring and Sixth Guardian branding. Specifically, the set includes:

  • Uniform
  • Headgear
  • Weapon skin
  • Charm

The bundle will be limited in time and available only for this Season. Make sure to check it out before Season 2 ends!

Community Artist Bundle Program Y6S2: Sunstark

In Y6S1 we’ve teamed up with Prime Gaming and launched our Community Artist Bundle Program by releasing the very first community-designed operator bundle: The SAU_SIEGE Bundle for Caveira[rainbow6.com].

With this program, we want to celebrate our amazingly creative and dedicated community artists and give them a chance to be represented in-game. Each selected artist gets to create a full set for an operator of their choice and these bundles will drop over the course of Year 6 and beyond.

We’re excited to continue our partnership with Prime Gaming in Y6S2 North Star to bring you the next edition of our Community Artist Bundle Program. As we announced during the Ubisoft Forward Post Show on June 12th, it’ll be a bundle created by artist Sunstark for the operator Lion.

Have a look at the full VOD of Ubisoft Forward to learn more about this bundle in a video interview with Sunstark herself, and for more exciting news and updates from our Siege Community Team.

This set for Lion includes the Sunstark:

  • Uniform
  • Headgear
  • V308 Weapon Skin
  • Charm

HOW TO REDEEM THE BUNDLE

The Sunstark Operator Bundle will become available through Prime Gaming starting from Thursday, June 17th. Make sure to claim it once it’s live, as it will be available for a limited time only!

Prime Gaming members will be able to claim this exclusive set for free. If you’re not a Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial.

Until the Sunstark Operator Bundle will be live on June 17th, you can unlock a 7-day Renown Booster with Prime right now!

Here’s how you can get these Prime Gaming offers:

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sunshine Kim, better known as “Sunstark”, is a professional concept artist from South Korea and she has been drawing impressive fan art of Siege’s operators since 2017. Through her attention to detail and love of the operators’ biographies, she became a role model to many artists and a core pillar in the Siege community.

But there’s even more to her story than that – while her Lion bundle was in production last year, Sunstark was hired by Ubisoft to work full-time on Siege as a Character Concept Artist. We’re proud to have such a talented personality coming from the community and joining our art team to create even more amazing content for our players in the future!

Lion is Sunstark’s absolute favorite operator (she calls herself “the mother of all lions”), so it was crystal clear to her (and us!) that she wanted to create this set for him. When she drew a concept of Lion as a firefighter[www.instagram.com] some time ago, she received many heartwarming messages from real firefighters, who wanted to see her design in-game. This inspired her to dedicate her Lion bundle to first responders in our community.

Have a look at her Twitter and Instagram[instagram.com] channels and make sure to follow her for more awesome art!
