Temporary Bans in Rainbow Six: Siege

QUESTION:

I'm trying to connect on Rainbow Six: Siege but the game tells me that I'm temporarily banned. What does it mean?

ANSWER:


Here are some relevant information about temporary bans that you could encounter in Rainbow Six: Siege:

1. Team Killing

If a player repeatedly team kills, they will temporarily be banned from matchmaking. After multiple offenses, a permanent ban may be issued to the offending player’s account:

- First offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 30 minutes
- Second offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 1 hour
- Third offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 2 hours
- Fourth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 24 hours
- Fifth offense: Banned from Matchmaking for 7 days

Duration of a suspension will be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case-by-case basis. After multiple offenses, the player may receive up to a permanent ban. Actual disciplinary action may differ from the list of examples depending on the severity of the behavior and, again, shall be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case-by-case basis.​

Please note that in these cases our support teams would not be able to overturn the decision.

2. Disconnection from the game

In order to keep the game enjoyable for everybody, players who disconnect from a ranked game will be temporarily banned and receive a Renown or Rank penalty.
