Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege: More than 90000 accounts banned in 2020.
Cheaters are the bane of competitive games, and developers and publishers are well aware of this. After Activision, which is pleased to have banned more than 60,000 accounts from Call of Duty: Warzone in a single night, it is, therefore, the turn of Ubisoft and their flagship FPS Rainbow Six Siege to return to this problem.
Ubisoft is still strengthening its position to face cheaters. This strategy has been particularly successful since the French publisher has announced that it has banned more than 90,000 players from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege during the year 2020.
This exceeds the previous annual production record by more than 44%. Ubisoft explains that this new record results from improved detection, detailed reporting, and data sharing with BattlEye, the anti-cheat software that most Ubisoft games use.
Despite these fine results, the French firm admits that this battle remains a battle at all times and that it must redouble its efforts to prevent other unwelcome players from destroying the parts of the other participants of Rainbow Six Siege.
Unlike other developers, to strengthen their position, Ubisoft chooses to communicate less on the subject to prevent cheaters from anticipating the launch of new maneuvers. However, Ubisoft still offers an overview of its three anti-cheat pillars: detection, blockers, and vulnerabilities.
Detection helps spot cheaters, while blockers, such as two-factor authentications, work to prevent cheaters from creating new accounts. Meanwhile, the last point aims to spot vulnerabilities in the game before cheaters take hold of them. Stay tuned for the next update.
