Recently, Ubisoft posted about some major Rainbow Six Siege update 2.1.3 issues that affected player connectivity and overall competitive play. Ubisoft confirms some players have had their NAT type changed. Aside from the usual server issues that block player entry, there’s also a bug that causes players to lose competitive ladder points after winning ranked matches. Overall, these issues are severe and can damage the player base if not fixed soon.
As announced by community manager Its_Epi on the Rainbow Six Siege subreddit, the game is experiencing three crucial server system issues. The NAT Type change, Error Code 6-0x00001000, and ranked match point rewards issues will definitely be a nuisance to all of Rainbow Six Siege’s player base. Fans will just have to wait for Ubisoft to announce if they’ve fixed these issues to make the game comfortably playable again.
NAT Type Change
