Rainbow Six Siege Players Express Frustration Over Server Issues

Rainbow Six Siege players are voicing their frustration over ongoing server issues that have marred their gaming experience. Users have taken to both Twitter and to express their grievances and demand prompt action from Ubisoft.

Tevin Dunlap, a player fed up with server-related problems, vented on Twitter, stating, “I’m about to uninstall this game. Your servers are trash and I get penalized for losing server connection during a match and taking 10 minutes to just load into the main menu.” Such experiences not only disrupt gameplay but also lead to penalties, unfairly affecting player rankings.

Another gamer, disappointed with the frequency of error codes, criticized Ubisoft, saying, “Every time I queue for a match I get a different error code. Fix your servers, it’s been a week.” The issue has not spared Xbox Series S users, who have also reported varying error codes when attempting to queue for matches.
