Users of the Rainbow Six Lounge: Please Read
I want us all to be on the same page regarding a few things.
After a users' (and others, in the past) rather uncouth display of misunderstanding the Lounge rules - and more importantly, the Content Policy of Moot, I felt that I should offer a light refresher to how it works.
Firstly, here are the rules of the Rainbow Six Lounge:
This at first glance seems like a long post, and, it is, kind of. It's for quality control.
We, the community, cherish this Lounge and the content within it. Managing the posts and comments within it is a task that we all participate in, even if you're only casually using Moot. It is very important that you read the rules - and more importantly - understand them. If you are confused or curious about any of the rules, you are welcome to ask on the Rules by commenting.
The Mods are a part of the community, too, and they do their best to keep the quality of the Lounge in tip-top shape. As we've created the rules, we also abide by them. No moderator is going out of their way to ruin your day. And, if for some reason you're confused about a post being moved, or deleted - just ask us.
Secondly, I want to be sure you're all aware of Moot's Content Policy:
It is very short - much easier to sift through than the Lounge rules!
Due to the aforementioned recent confusions, I want to highlight certain points of the Content Policy, of which is global across Moot, all of its Lounges, and the Incubator - it is not restricted to one specific area.
Posts in Rainbow Six see a high volume of relocation and deletion on a regular basis, this is totally normal. As stated, this is by no means to mess with your posts. This is to abide by the rules we, as mods, must reinforce. In particular, posts in Rainbow Six fall under removal due to these points in the Content Policy:
Content that will be prohibited on Moot:
- All forms of threatening, harassment, bullying, and encouragement of any harmful actions
Behavior that will be prohibited on Moot:
- Asking for any form of voting
- Creating multiple accounts to avoid punishment
We have many ways of enforcing these rules, many of which would include:
- Sending a message asking to stop (warning)
- Removal of offensive content
- Adding a temporary suspension to the account
- Permanent ban of the account
Finally, for the users who are the most concerned, or whom of which may still be confused up until this point in the post, I want you to read the very, very last line in the Content Policy:
Lounge rules will be created and managed by moderators.
This brings us full circle.
The mods are a part of the community, just like you. We're here to help you, and Moot, and each other. We're on your team, and we greatly appreciate every single one of you.
Without you users, the Moot community wouldn't be as amazing as it is.
Popular[READ BEFORE POSTING] LOUNGE RULES, FAQs, + RESOURCES
Welcome to the Rainbow Six: Siege Lounge!
This Lounge is where our community can band together to discuss and share our love for Rainbow Six: Siege.
To establish and retain a fulfilling, rewarding, and ultimately enjoyable experience within our Lounge and the Moot community as a whole, we expect every member to abide by the following rules. They are enforced by the Mod team, and these rules will be enforced within our Rainbow Six: Siege Lounge
Before proceeding, please be sure to read over Moot's Content Policy:
By continuing to use the Rainbow Six: Siege Lounge, you are agreeing that you have read this post in its entirety. All rules and content within this post are subject to change at any time without any prior notice.
EXPECTATIONS OF USE OF LANGUAGE
Due to Rainbow Six: Siege being an M-rated game, the rules regarding the use of language will be a bit lighter in our Lounge. Use of common profanity is expected and will be tolerated. Incessant, degrading, racist, vulgar or repetitious use of profanity as a whole, including profanities to insult will not be tolerated and will be deleted immediately, following a warning or a ban. See Rule 4 for more.
1. Self-Promotion of your unique content goes on the Self Promotions Board.
This is a simple rule - as a community-based lounge, we hope you do not use it to farm views or clicks for your personal content. If you wish to share your content, you can paste links/attach files and post them in the Promotions board. Links will embed - give it a second and you're good to go!
Any and all posts regarding advertisements in any form will be immediately deleted without warning.
Try to follow these guidelines when posting to our Self Promotions board:
- Keep it related to Rainbow 6. Your channel itself may not be totally R6, but if you're promoting your content on the board, please be sure that the content you're promoting is related to Rainbow 6.
- Please do not spam your channel, or content. Give everyone a chance to promote their work. Do not heavily repost your work, either - constant reposts won't fly. Everyone deserves a chance to be on page 1.
- Do not flame other users' channels, or discriminate against other peoples' work. If someone asks for a critique, obviously go for it - but don't downtalk someone else's channel in the board. No bueno.
- Be kind to your fellow content-creators! Give them support, just as they hopefully will support you. I know you're all a great bunch.
- Please, no Discord server links/advertisements.
2. No “Carry Me”, farming/cheesing, or cheating posts.
No posts regarding carrying, farming event items or cheesing mechanics - any posts including this content will be deleted without warning.
No posts enforcing, promoting, or showcasing cheating in any form - any posts including this content will result in deletion of the content, followed by an immediate ban without warning.
3. Place your posts on the correct Board.
Failure to place your posts within the correct Categories will see the posts be moved. Multiple, continued failures to post on the correct Board will result in following incorrect posts being deleted without warning, with a possible account timeout.
GENERAL is to be used for general discussion.
LOOKING FOR TEAMMATES is for players who are looking any kind of match up.
HIGHLIGHTS is for replays, shares of your plays, and the like.
MEMES are for memes. Pretty straightforward. Keep it quality. Easy on the spam.
ART is for art, and original non-highlight content. Try to credit original artists!
TIPS is for gameplay tips, sharing strategies, and so on.
If you're really unsure where to put something, try to use your noggin and just go for it - if worse comes to worst we'll move it for you if need be.
4. Be friendly, show respect and care to all of our members.
This is a very simple rule to understand, and the lengths of which it will reach is grounded in common sense. Be friendly to all users, including new players, other members of Moot, the moderators, and so on.
There will be absolutely zero tolerance for flaming, witch hunting (name-shaming, doxxing), racism, sexism, intolerable language and use of extreme vulgarity.
5. Keep all discussions about Rainbow Six: Siege.
Another simple rule. Any content not directly relating to Rainbow Six: Siege will be deleted without warning. This includes memes and their content.
5,1. Refrain from the posting of “non-content”, including low-effort posts and spam posts.
We hope for, expect, and would like to promote inciteful, full and explorable content for users from all periods of joining Moot to take an interest in reading or participating in. To help establish this, any post relating to, or not relating to Rainbow Six: Siege that is low-effort or considered non-content by the mods may be subsequently removed without warning.
This includes but is not limited to: posts with no body content, caps-locked posts, incoherent posts, grammatically fragmented posts and/or simply posting without merit.
Please be sure to post your memes ON the Meme Board and to be certain you are on the right Board prior to posting. Memes wandering off from that Board will carry the potential to be deleted without warning. Have care in your posts!
6. No nudity or explicit content.
More simple rules. Keep it classy in here. No explicit or vulgar content. No highly suggestive themes, including 'thicc' memes. Any violations of this rule will be met with an immediate and permanent ban of the Rainbow Six: Siege Lounge.
Finally, if you find other users breaking any of the aforementioned rules, report them.
This is more or less up to the discretion of our users, and we implore that you report where you see it. You may report it via Moot's report button.
REGARDING TIME-OUTS, BANS, AND REPEAT-OFFENDERS,
THE UPDATE I WISH I NEVER HAD TO MAKE
After a lengthy and frankly exhausting string of repeat-offences (see gif above), I figured I would outline how the bans will be doled out and how to so easily avoid them.
1. Read the rules, and follow them.
Easy. SO easy. It's very obvious when a user hasn't read them.
2. Multiple repeat-offences, or, failure to follow basic guidelines after warnings.
This is for those of you who are having a hard time coping with step 1. I understand this is a lengthy post, but, it takes only a few minutes to read - and then you can be on your merry way posting top-tier content to share with the rest of us here on Moot.
Rule 5,1 states that some posts, especially low-effort posts may be deleted without warning. The general idea of what "low-effort" encompasses is also outlined. This is for content/spam control. We are a people of taste, such like yourself.
3. Failure to understand/follow the rules (if you read them), or flaming/antagonizing moderators/admins in light of your ban will result in... A ban.
This takes us back to the glorious incandescence of rule 4. This is a community where people are implored to discuss Rainbow Six: Siege. Have some fun doing it! Go talk to some users, make some connections, make friends, play games! You can bring great content to our Lounge, and be a part of our awesome ever-growing userbase.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, FREQUENTLY POSTED PROBLEMS
As I woefully read in a post once, "They didn't even read it, just deleted it."
This is highly untrue, as our mod team must go through each and every single post and be certain that it pertains to both the Lounge rules and the Moot Content Policy. Any posts that don’t abide by these very simple and easy-to-follow criteria are deleted.
The following is a fluid set of FAQs that will be updated as frequently as I can add to it, so be sure to check it often - chances are it has an answer to what you’re looking for before you post.
If not, post away!
“Why did my post get moved?”
It was moved because it was originally posted on the wrong Board. Be sure to check where you are posting, and what you’re posting before submitting.

If you want peace prepare for war: Operation Para Bellum [consorting with Get_Flanked]
With Operation Para Bellum launching somewhen in June 2018 a new dawn rises over the dark times of Operation Chimera. There will be many new exciting content, changes and buffs coming with the next season, which I will definitely be looking forward to.
I want to use this opportunity to talk a little bit about what, for me, was so frustrating about Operation Chimera and what expectations I have on Operation Para Bellum.
First of all I wanted to ask, did anyone else realize how toxic the R6-community became during Operation Chimera? Of course there are black sheeps in every online game, but especially in midseason it was nearly unbearable! At first it were those players who wete picking shield operators to abuse their protection provided by their shield to randomly tk teammembers, then it were the Caveira players (this is not meant as an insult to any serious Caveira player out here) and finally it were those pulse players abusing their C4 to „get the round to a quicker end“. This problem reached a point where, when Caveira was picked by a mate, I aimed for her head for several seconds just to make sure I would be able to kill her as soon as she starts harming other team members.
To stay fair, I actually was able to relate to those who had to vent their frustration by tking or trolling (at least kind of). As I said Operation Chimera was a pretty frustrating season. There were many glitches like the shield glitch, the invisibility glitch, the glitch, which could allow attackers to walk through indestructible walls, and so on. And if you combine these glitches with the whole attacker favored META (Dokaebi, Lion and Finka) it is reasonable that the one or other looses his temper from time to time.
However even I had a hard time during Operation Chimera. I was probably the only one who resisted the META (Basically the META was playing global ability operators.) I had an overall playtime of 3 h as Lion and as Dokaebi I had even less. With Finka it was a bit different but she was the weakest of all global operators. So the number one thing I kind of learned from Chimera was that I will never again resist any META (Most Effectiv Tactic Available btw) because that was where a huge part of frustration came from.
However to finish things off: All‘s well that end‘s well! Lion got his nerf, so my frustration nearly decreased by 100%.
But what do I expect from Operation Para Bellum?
Hopefully the developers will be able to fix those glitches, it will make a huge part of how enjoyable the new season will be.
Due to all the new content added to the game, there will be a lot new playstyles and tactics and I‘m really excited on how they will work out.
According to the developers the new italian map, something like a villa on a vineyard, will be the most competitive ever. If you ask me this all sound very promising and I‘m absolutely looking forward to it.
So this was kind of all what I wanted to get rid of.
I‘d really like to know if anyone else experienced the toxicity like I did. Are there any Lion mains in here who are actually sad about his nerf?
What‘s your opinion about global operators?
And most importantly: What do you expect from the next season with all the changes and new content? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
PopularOperation PARA BELLUM
I hope there is something good comes out of this.
Alot of youtubers have been talking about this.
The new operators abilitys can counter alot of attaking strats as they said.
But not that much information has been told.
Some people say there will be an event like (Out break)
The others say its just a new map.
And a lot of other opinions.
But most importantly. .. what do we think ( R6 Community )?
PopularWhy soloqueuing actually isn‘t bad!
So I just randomly got matched with 5 randoms. One I think came from Italy, the other one from France, the third one from Belgium and the fourth one to be honest I have no idea of. No matter where we came from we all communicated in English. We were kind of the most exemplary team Rainbow 6 could offer. We were all about lv80-120 so we all share the same skill level.
Well I don‘t want to spoil anything but we lost the match narrowly. After this experience I took a while and reflected on what was going so badly wrong.
We all made perfect callouts, that wasn‘t the thing. Also we discussed at the beginning of every round which operators we would need so we had a perfect team composition as well. So the only explaination I found for why we were actually losing was kind of related to our mindsets, or especially my mindset!
I‘m not quite sure but I think if I had muted the 4 others of my team things would have gone slightly different. To call things by its name: I think I would have won the match if that would have been a normal soloqueue match.
The thing is when you are soloqueuing you play different, than when playing with a full squad.
Like for example when I‘m soloqueuing I usually seperate from the rest of my team as soon as possible because I have my own routine and I have my mains which perfectly fit into this routine.
This routine probably comes from the experience I made that I mustn‘t trust any team mates. Basically when I see a team mate droning out a room I take my drone to drone it out a second time because I don‘t know how precisely my team mate was droning.
So what exactly happened when I was on that random 5 man squad? Basically I turned off my natural insticts from soloqueuing!
When a team mate droned out a room and after that said: „The room is clear!“ I trusted him blindly, and followed him without droning out the room a second time like I usually do! This eventually led to the both of us rushing into a room which was guarded by a defender who patiently camped at a spot where my team mate didn‘t look at when droning.
And that experience I just made is the perfect proof of that soloqueuing actually isn‘t bad.
Soloqueuing helps you evelope your own game sense without other team members telling you what to do.
What I basically leared from that experience is that I mustn‘t ever again trust a teammate blindly (wether he has a headset or not). This isn‘t meant to sound rude, but it‘s always better to be twice as careful than twice as sloppy.
So when, next time, you desperately post into the LFG section that you incredibly desire to have a full squad, take a rest and think about it first :) Soloqueuing has more advantages than one might think and my experience is the perfect proof of how bad it can turn out to have a full squad.

Rainbow Six: Siege 1.2 Patch Brings Balance Changes
Patch 1.2 for Rainbow Six: Siege goes live today on PC and tomorrow for consoles. The patch brings several balancing tweaks for different operators and maps. Perhaps the most notable changes come to Lion, who’s scan ability is being nerfed. The cooldown has been doubled, from 10 seconds up to 20, and the amount of charges has been reduced from 3 to 2. Read the rest of the official patch notes at the link below.

PopularGaming Advice: Please Reinforce Responsibly
This post is primarily directed to newer players. Recently I saw alot of players who just reinforce any wall in their reach, which isn‘t bad, of course but it can do a lot of harm to your teammates. (Some walls can be used as rotation spots/ambush). So there are several things I‘d like to explain.
Firstly considering BOMB mode: Don‘t reinforce walls in between the bomb spots, these are always meant to be opened by shotguns or impact grenades so the enemy can‘t enter the second objectiv room undetected.
Secondly condidering specific OPERATORS: Mostly it is MIRA who wants to reinforce ONE wall but leave to other wall unreinforced so she can put her mirrow on the reinforced wall and shot through the unreinforced wall as soon as she spots an enemy. So if you see a Mira, just wait and see what she is up to, before you reinforce any wall!
Thirdly, if you see a wall is OPENED or has a HOLE in it, don‘t reinforce that wall! It means that either that wall is used as a ROTATION SPOT for the ally roamer to SAFELY RETURN into the objective room or as an AMBUSH for the enemy (Trap-Operators like Frost and Lesion could have set her traps right underneath it)
GENERALLY in case you don‘t know if a wall needs to be reinforced: WAIT and look if somebody else is trying to do something with the wall. Most players will use the PING to indicate that walls need to be reinforced and if you are still not sure you can of course go on to reinforce but be ATTENTIV of your surroundings. Most players will try to show you that you mustn‘t reinforce that wall by pressing the KNIFE-BUTTON which leaves a hissing sound. As soon as you see and hear such things, immediately stop and wait to see what your teammate is up to!
PopularPLEASE credit original artists when posting on the Art board.
We all love art, we all love Rainbow 6.
Artists do not like their art stolen, and, I've seen countless users posting art claiming it to be their original work, when a simple reverse-image search on Google, and a quick Tweet or PM quickly proves otherwise.
If you're posting art that's not yours, please credit the artist. If you really can't find that information, at least try to post a reference to where you found the art.
If you post art and claim the piece is your own and you are found not to be the original artist, it'll be removed, and you'll get banned.
We have a LFG tab?!
Did you guys know that LFG means looking for a game? If you’re looking for someone to play with or looking for recruitment for clans please post it there. Other tabs have their own uses. General is not for you to spam post that you are looking for a game. Please read the rules before continuing to post. Thanks!General
PopularSecret Changes in TTS
Many people don't know this but based off of the test servers ubisoft seems to want to (finally) provide some incentive to using the LMGs, I've always loved them but many of them seemed underpowered and it seems ubisoft feel the same way. In the test servers a number of LMGs were given significant damage buffs. This will include ying, zofia, capitao, and possibly others but I only know these 3 for certain. Ying's major drawback was her lmg so she may end up in a good spot Edit: Going from 34 to 43 damage, and as a capitao main this buff to his lmg is insane, going from its damage being low 30s to an insane 48 damage Edit: 34 to 48 damage, i believe zofias lmg will be given 48 damage also. Edit: 32 to 41 damage. Figured I would shed a bit of light on others who enjoy using lmgs 😊👍
Found Out by reddit user Stiel_
Say a child is misbehaving (toxic behavior). You would punish the child because bad behavior is not acceptable. That is understandable, however Ubisoft kills the child instead. This is not acceptable. Everyone has miss behaved whether you would like to admit it or not. The only people who should be killed are the criminals (the hackers). The criminals are the people who are doing the damage and directly affecting people and are NOT avoidable. People who are misbehaving should not be banned. Hopefully these few metaphors helped people grasp a better understanding of my viewpoint. Thank you for your time.General
PopularRainbow Six Siege Dev Cracking Down on Toxicity
In a blog post today, the Rainbow Six Siege development team outlined some new plans to combat negative player behaviors. In the short term, Ubisoft has implemented a chat monitoring system. The system will scan for inappropriate language, like racial or homophobic slurs, and track an individual’s use of them over time. Bans will be issued with duration based on severity, ranging from a few days up to a lifetime ban for the most egregious offenders. Ubisoft also mentioned a desire to combat intentional team-killing. Finally, they said Season 3 will include the ability to mute and the filter the game’s text chat. All in all, a welcome update in our eyes.

PopularNew Meta Unstoppable?
Do you think that wit having blitz a two speed, a wall hack op, and an all around medic and recoil reducer is too unbalanced for the attackers? Personally, I believe that with adding in both Lion and Finka as attacking operators, there is no doubt that it changed the meta. The question is, what is the way to stop the rush? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about how to stop the rush meta!General
PopularStory mode for Siege (idea)
I was thinking today about an idea I had for an offline story mode for Siege. I personally think it’s a good idea but what do you guys think? The format is also loosely based off BF1 campaign. I just want a story mode because the situations are pretty boring tbh.
So there will be multiple sections of the story mode. There will be a story mode for each counter terrorism group and you can enter the story mode for say GIGN as an example. The story mode includes the operator growing up and going through training and their first deployment (back story). Each story will take around a few hours to complete and you get cut senes along with a lot of game play in each story. After completing each story for one operator you get rated on how well you completed the story (1-3 stars). For 1 star you earn 3k renown, 2 stars = 5k renown, 3 stars = 7k renown. But the twist is that every new operator story you unlock in the same counter terrorism group you have to spend 5k renown (that way people keep playing the game and grinding). Every individual CT group you get one free story unlock. And maybe if you earn 3 stars on all stories you could unlock a secret White Masks story?
What could be improved or do you like the idea?
EDIT: After seeing comments I think that once you complete a story for an op you get a headgear skin, body skin, and weapon skin for that op. That way people will be more interested in the story mode. Also the more stars you get on the story the nicer the skin you’ll get.
Moot PRO TIP: If your post gets deleted by a mod/admin, don't repost it.
You're gonna have a bad time if you do this, trust me.
It'll just be deleted again.
For the same reason.
Then, you've made yourself more likely to get banned.
In turn, creating posts asking why mods/admins deleted x post or y meme is not a way to get a hold of us for support. That's creating more clutter for everyone.
Following these, posting a new topic with such things like "Why did a mod/admin delete this? This is what it was" - and then using that opportunity to repost whatever it was that caused the deletion in the first place is ALSO not a good idea.
Don't do the aforementioned stuff. Here's why:
1. It was deleted for a reason.
2. By reposting it, you're putting yourself in a position to get banned.
3. That post will also be deleted for the same reason the first one was deleted.
If you honestly, truly believe your post was deleted in some sort of misjudgement or critical error, hit us up on the support channel in Discord.
Don't say you weren't warned. You read the rules, didn't you?
