"Rainbow Six Siege" is now taking actions in order to fix its matchmaking system issues. Meanwhile, the Pro League will be limited to PC Players.

"Rainbow Six Siege" Technical Test Servers are now making their move to the first-person shooter in order to create a controlled test environment for the game's future features along with its changes towards the gameplay. This environment can be similar to the Public Test Realms (PTR) of Overwatch in which the game has changes to ease out different bugs including glitches before it will be open to living servers. "Rainbow Six Siege" first Technical Test Servers will be launched later this month in the Western region of Europe.

According to VG247, Technical Test Servers will be similar to Public Test Realms that will only be available and limited to the PC versions. Despite to the current limited availability of versions, Ubisoft in now planning to expand the regions soon but as of now, the studio will focus more on its One Step Matchmaking.

With this, the new matchmaking feature of "Rainbow Six Siege" will no longer separate two teams against each other. Instead, it will assemble 10 players and will automatically assign teams with balanced players. Along with this new feature, players can now browse through the main menus while in matchmaking; for those players who want to browse through the store or just their characters while waiting to start the match game.

Each phase in different new servers will focus on changing aspects in “Rainbow Six Siege.” These updates will carry from matchmaking, skill balances and up until the game’s character weapons. For all players who will participate in the test, servers will be granted an access to all items and characters for free but will not be transferred to live servers.

Meanwhile, PVP Line reported that Ubisoft has recently announced the limited availability of the “Rainbow Six Siege” competitive scene to all PC Players only. The reason is that it will help to enhance the development of the competition where the top teams will have a chance to win $100,000 as the grand prize. Good news is that “Rainbow Six Siege” can still be played on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
