December 6, 2022 Ubisoft says it’s fixed both the squad invite issue and the battle pass tokens and levels issue.
A Rainbow Six Siege update has made it impossible for some players to queue with their friends in the FPS game. The patch that accompanied Operation Solar Raid introduced a bunch of long-awaited new features to Siege, but it appears to have introduced some serious bugs as well. Not only can players not invite friends and squad members and friends to their lobbies, but issues have cropped up with battle pass ranks and last season’s ranked charms.
Ubisoft says that the Siege team is “aware of issues with the squad and invite features affecting all platforms and are working to resolve these problems.”
While the devs work out what’s wrong, players on the Siege subreddit have shared potential solutions for people running into the issue. Generally, the main suggestions seem to be to toggle the new crossplay matchmaking feature on or off – simply changing it seems to help in some cases.
Players should also be aware that purchasing battle levels at the moment doesn’t always work – you may not get the expected levels and tokens with those purchases, so it’s probably wise to hold off on those until Ubisoft signals the all-clear.
In a tweet posted shortly after this story went live, Ubisoft said the Siege team has found the source of both the squad invites issue and the battle pass tokens and levels issue, and both should now be resolved.
Ubisoft also says it’s investigating an issue that has caused many players to not receive the ranked charm they earned in the last season.
