The Daily Moot: R6 Siege Going Free-to-Play

1. Rainbow Six Siege Going Free-to-Play

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot: R6 Siege Going Free-to-Play image 2

In shocking news, Rainbow Six Siege director Leroy Athanassoff announced that he is planning to make Rainbow Six Siege free to play. Although there’s no timetable for when this might happen, Athanassoff said that it is ultimately a “company decision” and that they “want the game to be accessible to everyone.” Before they take this huge leap, however, there is one major issue which needs to be addressed first: smurfing. Athanassoff stated that his team is working on various improvements for smurf detection, and that they are exploring all the different possibilities they can before taking the game free-to-play.

  2. Twitch Prime March Loot   March’s month of loot for Twitch Prime subscribers has been revealed. Apex Legends fans can pick up the exclusive “Gilded Rose” skin for the newly released Revenant, which will be available until March 19. There’s also a Player Pick Pack for FIFA 20 available until March 24. Starting tomorrow, there will be a ton of Destiny 2 freebies including the Praxis Finery Sparrow, the Sails of Osiris ship, and a legendary Ghost Shell. Loot for PUBG and Black Desert Mobile are expected in the coming weeks.

  3. Black Mesa Official Launch   After 14 years in development and 5 years in early access, Black Mesa is finally getting its official launch. Originally beginning as a Half-Life mod, Black Mesa is now considered a Half-Life remake which further expands on the game’s world. For example, Black Mesa includes completely original levels and allows players to fully explore the borderworld Xen. Black Mesa is set to launch on March 5.

  4. Temtem Ranked Play   Ranked play is coming to Temtem! As part of their short-term roadmap, developer Crema unveiled a host of upcoming updates to the Pokemon-like game. Some of the most notable include ranked play and in-game chat which are expected this Spring. There’s also new islands, new Temtems, player housing, achievements, and in-game tournaments coming this Summer and Fall. These are some huge updates that will undoubtedly improve the game, but Crema has warned fans to take the roadmap “with a grain of salt and expect delays.”

    Feels bad man

  • Bean_boi16 LV.4 Apex > Fortnite Feb 26, 2020, 05:47 AM

    Well yeah but we don't know when it's going free to play. So the fact that you bought it now could mean that you are playing it for a decent time before it goes free to play. So look at the bright side. :)

  • chris12342 LV.4 Lurker Feb 26, 2020, 07:37 AM

    it will probably be for milited time

  • TTVJustmejtcz8 LV.19 Team Player Feb 26, 2020, 11:16 PM

    Odds of it being limited are low. Normally they announce a free week. They announced this at the invitationals, they’re planing to make it Free-To-Play just like Destiny 2.

  • WheatenFaun610 LV.2 Lurker Feb 27, 2020, 07:31 AM

    Yeah but unlike destiny people will actually download this

  • TTVJustmejtcz8 LV.19 Team Player Mar 1, 2020, 11:09 PM

    Destiny free-to-play was more or less unsuccessful because console users have to pay a subscription to play online. It didn’t ruin the gameplay but it just made it worse for people who can’t get gold live/PS+.

  • SteelSoul99 LV.21 OPFOR Feb 26, 2020, 05:52 AM

    well, odds are it won't be permanent, they'd lose a good amount of money if they did it permanently

  • EchoChan LV.2 Lurker Feb 26, 2020, 07:29 AM

    but they would gain more players, and to get r6 coins is a whole other story, so it's a 50/50

  • SteelSoul99 LV.21 OPFOR Feb 27, 2020, 08:12 AM

    The thing is you don't need to by R6 credits, at all, you can easily just grind renown

  • EchoChan LV.2 Lurker Feb 27, 2020, 09:09 AM

    not everybody has the time or patience to grind renown like me, I stopped playing cases completely for a couple of months bcuz I would always get matched up with plays and diamonds and just the Sweattiest people, which made cas not fub

  • SteelSoul99 LV.21 OPFOR Feb 27, 2020, 09:10 AM

    Then don't play 🤷‍♂️

  • redd. LV.22 Professional Noob Feb 27, 2020, 08:06 AM

    It’s business strategy. Take a look at fortnite. Free-to-play. Skins is wins. Easy math :)

  • SteelSoul99 LV.21 OPFOR Feb 27, 2020, 08:13 AM

    Well look at the demographic, Fortnite is tailored to children, R6 is tailored towards a more mature audience

  • redd. LV.22 Professional Noob Feb 27, 2020, 08:22 AM

    I find more adults than children on fortnite. There’s just adults everywhere on R6

  • TTVJustmejtcz8 LV.19 Team Player Mar 1, 2020, 11:07 PM

    You have no idea how many kids I ran into during my time of playing seige. It may be displayed for adults, but tons of children play it.

    UBI , I want my money back

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 05:36 AM

    You still enjoy the game for what it is right? If you like siege then just keep playing it. There is no way we could have known it would be free or even when it’s going to be. You don’t deserve money back just because others won’t have to pay for it in the future.

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 05:38 AM

    Your right , but I still want my money back so I can buy Credits with them .

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 05:40 AM

    I mean if they refund everyone then they lose a ton of money. By making it free all they do is make it more accessible. They aren’t taking anything from anyone. Plus with the new wave of players you can say “I was there when so and so happened” and you will be so much more experienced then the free to play.

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 05:42 AM

    I know .

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 05:44 AM

    Then no one deserves a refund

  • </_Wasabi_\> LV.26 Try Hard Feb 26, 2020, 06:44 AM

    SunSleeper  Sun out here with straight factz

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 08:10 AM

    SunSleeper  I didn't said I deserve it , I said I want it .

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 08:12 AM

    EmyR6 Recruit  And I want a million dollars

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 08:13 AM

    SunSleeper  That's the point : Is just something that I want , but it doesn't mean I will get it .

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 08:14 AM

    EmyR6 Recruit  Then what’s the point here lol and why did you have to address Ubi if it’s just wishful thinking

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 08:18 AM

    SunSleeper  well.. C's my wish had to do with a part of they'r money (more specific the ones they earned from me as a costumer when I bought the game ). And if I got it , I will spend it on R6 credits anyway .

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 08:27 AM

    EmyR6 Recruit  BUT (crazy idea) what if they KEPT the money you spent because there is no reason for them to give you any. And then if you want R6 credits then they will still be available for purchase? My proposition is that they give paid players a free cosmetic instead of giving them currency that Ubisoft already earned. That way you get something for buying it and Ubi gets to keep their money.

  • EmyR6 Recruit LV.24 Wolf Feb 26, 2020, 04:02 PM

    SunSleeper  That works too .

  • HundredCGB LV.13 Clearly Hacking Feb 26, 2020, 05:44 AM

    the people who've recently bout it like I have I bout the game last night and I get a moot bout it might go free that's messed

  • Alix Thezombiehunter LV.7 Caustic Main Feb 26, 2020, 05:40 AM

    You won’t get it

  • Jumpcat LV.7 Good Builder Feb 26, 2020, 05:42 AM

    they didn't say if it was confirmed you see. it's based on what ubi wants in the end after all. the developers and the publisher are two different entities. the devs are the brains while the publishers decide what to do with the game you see.

  • BanEla. LV.2 The Best Feb 26, 2020, 08:29 AM

    Siege being free to play?!?!?!??!

  • CNA_Gamer LV.21 Switch Feb 26, 2020, 05:28 AM

    I DID NOT WASTED MONEY FOR THE GAME

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 05:35 AM

    Bruh you still enjoy the game for what it is right? If you like siege then just keep playing it. There is no way we could have known it would be free or even when it’s going to be. That’s like saying “That sucks I wasted money on the lottery instead of waiting to see what the winning numbers were”

  • Spax LV.2 Lurker Feb 26, 2020, 06:13 AM

    No because the lottery is a gamble, it's not a product. It's more like for 5 years apples have cost $100, you decide to buy an apple but the next day the apple seller decides to make it free for everyone. I don't think they should refund everyone, that would be dumb. Some in game credits and an exclusive “paying player” weapon skin would be pretty fair though.

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 06:16 AM

    Some kind of exclusive cosmetic would be pretty good and I’m sure players would be happy with that, like a universal weapon skin. But to say you wasted money on it, that ain’t no ones fault but yourself. If they announce the next day those metaphorical “apples” are free then that isn’t their fault you spent the money on them the day before. You only have yourself to blame. Even then I still think it’s no ones fault. It’s a free game. Free stuff. And people shouldn’t be so mad about it when all ubi is doing is giving free stuff.

  • Spax LV.2 Lurker Feb 26, 2020, 06:23 AM

    No I don't think that my money was wasted, I've enjoyed the game. I do understand that perspective, especially if you aren't super well off financially and you had to save for it or not get another game for it. That must suck

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 06:32 AM

    So you’re argument is “yeah, but it kinda sucks” well I mean those who aren’t better yet financially and don’t have siege will now also have access to the game so instead of those people saying “poor me” they can be happy that at least others in similar situation will also be able to experience the same game.

  • URNITEMAIR LV.4 JUST SEND IT Feb 26, 2020, 05:29 AM

  • Bugerking Wifi420 LV.22 Apex > Fortnite Feb 26, 2020, 05:36 AM

    the people who bought rainbow should get something for buying it that the free to play people cant get since they didn't buy it like the rest of us

  • SunSleeper LV.6 Nightmare Feb 26, 2020, 05:46 AM

    Everyone else is saying we should get refunds and I think that’s BS but this I can fully agree on. Giving the people who bought the game a special thing to show that they were there when it still costed money would be a really good thing.

  • Bugerking Wifi420 LV.22 Apex > Fortnite Feb 26, 2020, 05:48 AM

    thank you i think giving money as a refund will be unfair to rainbow so at least give something to them for saying thank you for buying the game and sticking with us all these years

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.17 Pokémon Master Feb 26, 2020, 05:35 AM

    So will we be given R6 credits if we purchased the game? Or will this be like when base operators and all weapon attachments became free for everyone and if you bought those already you just got a big 🖕?

  • Alix Thezombiehunter LV.7 Caustic Main Feb 26, 2020, 05:43 AM

    Probably a “big 🖕”

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.17 Pokémon Master Feb 26, 2020, 05:44 AM

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.17 Pokémon Master Feb 26, 2020, 05:55 AM

    Alix Thezombiehunter  Are you sure? I'm pretty sure it went free to play for everybody at the same time they added the battle royale game mode. All you got if you had bought the game was a badge that said you had the game before it was free to play

  • Alix Thezombiehunter LV.7 Caustic Main Feb 26, 2020, 06:00 AM
