Ubisoft’s beta starts with the usual issues and errors.
The beta for Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege is in full swing and as is usually the case with such betas, there are issues. According to the game’s official page, players currently “have about a 60% chance to start a match successfully”.
Average waiting time between matches seems to be 60 seconds but it also seems that players who finish matches and are queued for another match have a slightly lower success rate (about 10 to percent lower).
Other potential issues that pop up include trying to join a match as a full party resulting in a lower percentage success rate compared to joining alone; various error messages, including “error 50”; and the usual random issues that pop up. Ubisoft is currently investigating these problems and hopefully it will solve some before the beta concludes on September 28th.
Rainbow Six: Siege is out on December 1st for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. How are you finding the beta thus far? Let us know in the comments below.
