Smurf accounts aren't breaking any of the rules we currently have in place.

Smurf accounts tend to rank up much faster than others, so the effect they have on your game should be minimal.

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

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...

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.

We are looking to see what we can do for this situation with RFF when goyo is in the game specifically.

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.
