Rainbow 6 Update due today/tomorrow

I’m done with R6 tbh. It was a pleasant enough ride - but the influx of characters ruined the balance. When will developers learn - game balance is a precise art that needs to be kept in equilibrium at all times. Throwing in new character ever few months breaks that.

Equally, the newer maps haven’t been that good recently.

Id bet tempted to try it again for a blast.

I’d give it another try, but we might have to push through an initial re-acclimatisation period filled with rage and frustration.

Holy thread bump!

New patch and operator’s released today/tomorrow. Sort of got me interested again. One can breach from below(oh-er) and they have made changes to some maps and ranked and non ranked playlists. Might be enough to give it a go again if others would too

I feel I would be so crap I would get annoyed.

But might be worth a look for giggles.

I do have that fear. Hopefully all the good people will play ranked and we can go unnoticed in non

Oh feck me sideways… It’s been that long since I played this I have a 66.50GB update to get. Thank god I’m on fibre now so will only take 2hrs 45mins, dread to think how long it would have been if still on copper wire broadband :confused:

I’ll reinstall it over night. Might get a game this Sunday evening

100gb download for me


Just looked on Amazon. A 120GB SSD is about £20.

They could literally put the game on an SSD, place it in a plastic DVD case, add an instruction manual - and sell it as a ‘gaming cartridge’ for £40.

We’ve literally gone full circle. I expect the Megadrive III to be announced next week.


I played a bunch with friends over the last two weeks. Still fun as fuck but we are not ready for ranked mode yet.


Hmm… Been reminiscing with @nomane tonight bout this. Maybe, just maybe a lockdown revist? whatcha think? @Jester @Angelclaws @adrock @RoGuE @VirulentPip @Hammy @adrock @MadMan @n0tch sorry if I missed others (can only mention 10 apparently). Trying to recall who was all playing.

Could be good fun just ZiiPster? new maps likely, new characters? No idea wher they are upto and any costs involved. 4 years ago though came out. Just saying. Seems like yesterday.

Hammy’s “Did you think you were fucking carrying Thor’s hammer?”. Brilliant.


I’m busy downloading the game to give a bash again :slight_smile:
