Will this affect only the current season or previous seasons? Because I'd really like to have that 500 elo last season that I lost to DDoSers which left me in plat 1 instead of diamond
It is for the current season.
That's not what I'm talking about, I'm talking about console players being given back MMR lost in games with DDOSing.
MMR rollback system will kick in for any players in matches with banned DDoSers > rainbow6.com/mmrrollback
Is mmr rollback thing for consoles too?
Does this apply to consoles? You wouldn't believe the MMR I've lost from ddosers
Yes. Console is a top priority.
We currently host 3 matches per server. When a server crashes, or when a DDoS/DoS attack occurs, this results in 3 matches being impacted and taken offline.
This explains a lot. Where it before appeared like ddosing was in super low ranks as well, it was likely just effect from a high rank game on the same server.
Also times where I'm in a 5 stack and know none of my teammates ddosed, yet we're on defense so it's working in our favor and looks as if it's us doing it.. also just effect from a different game on the same server.
We have identified the worst offenders perpetuating these DDoS/DoS attacks, and will be initiating a ban wave. This will apply to both PC and Console players.
Can we get some more detail on this? For example if someone was just paying a 3rd party site to do it, do they get off scott free or were they identified as well? By the wording I'm afraid only people doing it themselv...Read more
The bans are targeting the people that are directly benefiting from excessive use of DDoS attacks.
I see there’s mention of Microsoft partners but what about Sony? Siege is essentially in an unplayable state in the platinum and up rankings.
We're referring to the Microsoft Azure team to work towards server solutions, it's not related to xbone or PS4.
Any plans to undo the affects that DDOS'd games had on ranked MMR?
MMR rollback system will be activated for players banned for DDoSing. (rainbow6.com/mmrrollback)
If they get banned, you get the MMR rollback same as if they were cheating. I don't think they will rollback for games where it was an attack on a different game but the same server as it would probably be too difficult to identify and verify those matches.
The bans will follow the MMR rollback system where all games the banned DDoSer was in will nullify mmr gains/losses from players in that match.

I can't find the post but I believe u/ubinoty made a statement about this.
We are looking to see what we can do for this situation with RFF when goyo is in the game specifically.
Any updates regarding constant crashes on PS4 that seems to be associated with Ubi club challenges?
We are working on a fix for crashing on PS4 and will have an update soon.
Also, what kind of ban are we talking about? A two week ban like the previous time or an actual permanent ban?
It's a permanent ban.
Will escalating abandon sanctions be reinstated after this issue is resolved?
It's being temporarily disabled as it's negatively impacting players affected by DDoS. When we find the opportunity we would like to have it back up.
Following the release of Operation Ember Rise, we have been monitoring an increase in the amount of DDoS and DoS attacks against our servers. Our next steps for how we plan to address the situation moving forward include:

Ove is the top ranked player on Xbox currently and is a known ddosser. Can you do anything about this?
