Rainbow Six Siege Players Unhappy at Timed-Event with Paid-Only Cosmetic Packs


Rainbow Six Siege fans are upset with Ubisoft, over having to pay for Outbreak event packs with real world money. Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
50 items are being added to special Outbreak packs. These cost 300 R6 Credits and contain a random item from the 50. You can only obtain R6 credits by paying real-world money, and 300 R6 credits costs around 1.50.

To obtain every item from the selection you would need to buy 50 packs to guarantee the item you want - which means spending up to 75.

All players will, however, get four packs free.

"The Outbreak Collection is composed of a total of 50 unique items, and no duplicates. What this means is, if you acquire 50 Outbreak Packs, we guarantee that you will have the entire Collection, including the Elite Uniform," Ubisoft explained.

...

There's a long thread on the Rainbow Six subreddit where existing hardcore fans are expressing their disappointment at packs.

"I've been playing Siege since it launched in 2015," wrote fan Liquid7778. "I've bought every Year Pass, I've spent at least 150$ on Siege Points, and I've played over 400 hours. I find out today that in your Outbreak Event, you're releasing Outbreak Packs that can only be obtained through spending real world money on virtual currency. Not only that, but the people who are buying your newly $60 game are going to be receiving 10 more of those packs, than someone like me who has been there every step of the way, giving you money, supporting your game, letting everybody and their mother know that Siege is the game to play and you need to buy it now."

It's a common sentiment:

"I bought the 100$ complete edition and the 30$ year 3 pass and the people who are going to buy the 60$ version are going to get 10 more packs than me, wtf," added RobinPilliams.

There was no way the suits at Ubisoft (aka EA France) could have seen that coming. /sarcasm

Seems like a great reason to opt out of this bullshit.
