Not a fan of them removing the ground floor central corridor on Kafe. The S bend around kitchen was a defining aesthetic aspect of the map - and the changes elsewhere are basically dividing the map up into boxes like Villa and Hereford 2.0.

Changes to camera lights and HUD when flashed...

Observation Tools Visual Feedback

We are adjusting the indicator light colors on Defender and Attacker Observation tools to be more consistent. Moving forward, Observation tools controlled by Defenders will be blue, and those controlled by Attackers will be yellow. Additionally, Observation Tools that are under the effects of Vigil or Nøkk are now white. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure players can easily recognize a friendly, hacked, or enemy observation tool.

The following gadgets and tools have had their light colors changed to follow this design:
  • Regular Cameras
  • Valkyrie Cameras
  • Regular Drones
  • Maestro Turrets
  • Twitch Drones
  • Mozzie’s Hacked Drones
  • Bullet Proof Cameras

HUD Visibility

Player’s HUD will now remain visible when Flashed/Stunned. The HUD is a source of information for the player, not for the Operator they are controlling, and as such, the HUD info should always remain visible.

The changes coming to ranked seem like they're going to be some of the best made to the game so far.

I can't believe this is Ubisofts first real competitive game. While Siege has had somewhat of a rocky start, the way Ubisoft has been handling the competetive scene has been nearly flawless. Ubisoft Montreal and all those involved are amazing.

The game is fucking broken without claymores.
Instead of rolling back the patch, they ban items and operators, like a self-admiring grandiose fucking incompetent would do.
Good.
FUCKING.
Job, dev team.

Agreed. The map rotation has seemingly devolved into the same layout over time and the ones that are interesting (if unbalanced) get taken out of the ranked queue.

Yes, the support have been more than amazing. I just hope there’s no more “beta” in ranked

It's a similar issue to them removing the sprinklers on Bank. I get things need to be balanced as much as possible... but it homogenizes map design and removes unique aspects and environmental factors that add to the simulation of having gun battles in a real place rather than a videogame.

It sucks, but the devs always prioritise balancing at high level above everything, even core principles of the franchise.

I don't see the issues with the kafe changes, mostly because the majority of them are the first floor, which was just an awful floor for gameplay all around, nobody ever used it unless they had to.

Yeah true, but I’d have preferred for them to keep the kitchen corridor in the rework as it’s a diverse aspect of the layout and true to the architectural design the building.

Will give it a chance anyhow.

I think they could've took that fucking bomb out of the hell that is the bakery, put it in the freezer, and called it a day, but hey, y'know...

It wouldn't have been a great improvement, but it would've been a marked one.

They could have also just disabled IQ. Then other operators would have still been able to use the gadget. I can see an argument for both cases.
And disable all operators with deployable shield too? Nah this is absurd. They made the best decision and it’s just temporary till the new patch

Smoke is my favorite character but that's the worst elite skin by a mile god DAMN that shits ugly. I've been waiting for the Smoke elite for so long and they drop this "how do you do fellow kids" looking dude in front of me. Man looks like he's out to record a prank video to his declining subscribers. Picked up a groupon for those hairplugs he's got and used the extra cash to buy those kingdom hearts lookin jawns.

I think Smoke's elite might be subtle cross-promo for Watch Dogs 3. He also has Wrench's mask. Of course I'm not sure why they've chosen Smoke for this when Mute, Dokkaebi, and Echo exist... 🤷

I might've expected something more related to the boxing hobby in his backstory or the long-requested plague doctor costume.

It could be the London connection (his POB), but that seems incidental next to Mute's character being dotted with WD nods and Dokkaebi practically having HACK_EVERYTHING tattooed on her forehead. Mozzie being a Hacker Man also makes him a more logical candidate, but he is recent and recent characters often go hungry for cosmetics for a time.

It's fairly obvious we're getting a western themed midseason event just like April Fools stuff leaked during the last TTS.

I'm having a horrible time trying to get into games on PS4. I search for a game and just sit on the main menu for what feels like 10-15 minutes sometimes. I exit and research all the time but nothing.

When people shit on you at a personal level it really sucks. I usually don't let shit get to me when its on the internet but for Siege it can be different. How much can one improve before they hit their limit? Would having a team I play with consistently make a difference?

These questions come to mind when people in discord servers call me out for being a "shitter".

Sorry about what happened. It might; there's no guarantee. I recommend seeking a regular team of pleasant folks to improve your experience before your performance.

Have a squad ready for ranked. Don’t play without them only if you have to
