Rainbow Six Siege will let you cancel ranked matches with uneven teams

You'll soon be able to stop bad matches before they begin

One of the most infuriating things that can happen in Rainbow Six Siege is an uneven match in ranked play. Up until now, matches have always gone forward as normal even if a player drops just before it begins – but now Ubisoft has a change in mind that will allow players in uneven teams to cancel a bad match before it begins.

“To address frustrations where players are placed into a game with incomplete teams on either side,” the devs say in the latest Top Issues blog, “we are working on a Match Cancellation feature. The goal will be to allow players to cancel matches in the early stages of a game under the condition that their team is incomplete.”

This change is set to start testing on the TTS sometime during Year 5 Season 2. Based on the precedent of how previous seasons tend to roll out, we’d generally expect the new season to be announced and released over the course of May and June – but nothing in the game industry is currently on schedule with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
