How Rainbow Six was Ruined

Aug 26

Written by:

Before Ghost Recon even existed. Players played as Domingo Chavez or John Clark avatars in Rainbow Six on the Microsoft Gaming Zone by the thousands. Rainbow Six was the ultimate squad close combat game very popular on the PC from 1998-2002. When I speak about Rainbow Six, I am also talking about Rogue Spear as well. Rainbow Six had a huge market share and it was very popular in Korea like Starcraft 1 was or Starcraft 2 is currently. Red Storm Entertainment even released Rainbow Six Take Down in South Korea only because of the dominance.

So Ubisoft decided to purchase Red Storm Entertainment for the Tom Clancy license and they totally went pro console and anti PC platform. Since the purchase or partnership, Rainbow Six has never been the same. Countless missed opportunities to appease its real fan base of Rainbow Six which was rooted to the PC gamer. They constantly slapped the faces of its fan base repeatedly. I am aware of a large number of fans that refuse to purchase anything from Ubisoft because of their failure to listen to the community. The fans were turned off a little with Rogue Spear:Blackthorn and Covert Ops. They felt like were getting a game on an outdated engine shoved down our throats because of the new maps and scenarios. Ubisoft's multiplayer lobby software was the biggest piece of crap on the planet. They must of thought since the Microsoft Zone was a hugely popular place, they could build their own. Players were constantly hacked with back doors because it ran on basic IRC back end. You could get any IP and spoof any player you wanted to. There was no moderation or moderators to patrol the lobbies.

Ravenshield was announced and well received but when it was released without any anti cheat software or measures. It took a patch or 2 before they finally listened to its fan base. By the time Punkbuster was added to the game, players already moved on to better games. Rainbow Six Ravenshield was a decent game with some really nice cool maps and tools for non competitive play. The ball was dropped at release with cheating which was the biggest issue in all the previous iterations of Rainbow Six. You would think since the community was screaming for years since the original they would of noticed and made it a top priority. They always have been considered a company that wants to sell quantity not quality.

Since Ravenshield was released, all the future games since are considered console ports and garbage to me. Will Ubisoft will never take its PC user customers seriously? Here is a listing of the games they released for systems other then PC. Notice the how consoles get different titles then PC.

Here is a listing of the PC only games. Please compare the dates you will see the garbage and ports of the same title.

Rainbow Six Ravenshield was the last game I purchased from Ubisoft at release while I might own other games I recently purchased them on Steam at a deep discount price. Red Storm Entertainment had a huge thriving gaming community when they were purchased. The community determines whether your game is a hit or miss. I guess they decided just to churn out games and ignore the community and their needs at the time. Since Rainbow Six had declined, other franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield Series has over taken its market share. I have no reason ever to become excited for any Rainbow Six game now or in the future.

Did you know that Counterstrike was a mod for Half Life 1 inspired by the original Rainbow Six?

I owned and operated CWN and Clan Ladder which had over hundreds of matches played daily at its peak before it was retired, 90 percent of the users were Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon players. I consider myself qualified to address the issues because I was tasked with fixing its community for my community when it was ignored. I commissioned a $1000 Anti Cheat patch contest for Rainbow Six, Rogue Spear and Ghost Recon. I really enjoyed my relationship of hosting tournaments until it became apparent that I felt I being overworked.

If you noticed I still have not written about Ghost Recon because all I have to say is where is Ghost Recon 2 PC that got millions of gamers overly excited?? Oh yea it was canceled for a console port and an entirely different article with similar issues.
