Rainbow Six: Siege

Anyone else playing in the closed beta? Have to say it is growing on me even more so with friends.

The closed beta has been extended for another couple of days (4th October US time I think). I have three beta codes if anyone is interested in giving it a try.

First map, i killed 3 guys that where like the laggiest assed bullet sponges that took a clip and half each to kill, gg netcode, next map was terrorist hunt, was standing next to a boarded up doorway next to another guy, then the door boards just exploded and then both of us headshotted by some uber bot wallhaxer. Quit then uninstalled. Game will be dead on pc in less than a month unless u want to peer2peer with someone in europe with a 400ms ping. And still cant believe this isnt a f2p title, but full priced title with no SP...WTF!!

Anyway here are some codes i got in the mail if u want to some how punish yourself

P9CG-KN4F-CLEA-6EYA

Keys are redeemed or the rego period is up.

I was really hyped for this game but no dedicated servers is beyond a joke, do companies hate letting people host their own servers because it makes games easy to pirate or is it less reasonable logic?

How do you activate the beta codes anyways? I was given a code from a friend that worked at a game store for "guaranteed access". As far as I can tell all it did was put me on a waiting list that I could have been on without a code anyway.

Got a few mates in the Beta though, they seem to enjoy it. Want to get my hands on it.

Oh ok. Cheers Dox, that worked for me. Appreciate the key :D

Moose - download UPlay client and enter one of Dox's keys into the "activate product" thing. Worked for me. i think I took the second one.

Dreamstation conned me into buying this on PS4 and i have to say, damn it's fucking awesome. Had to tear the controller out of my hands last night and force myself to sleep.

Heard a similar issue with this on the PC ala Battlefront - Not enough players to get consistent online games.

Yeah but in sieges case the reason it has no players is because its fucking atrocious. Its a massive let down, Ravenshield was one of my favourite games, used to LAN the shit out of it an Athena sword doing terrorist hunts etc.

I seem to read the opposite online, one of the other reasons i bought it was how many people talking about how good it is or has become.

Not sure what Larno is on about but the game is great. There's plenty of players on the PS4 - not sure about PC though as I don't have one setup currently. The matchmaking issues at launch weren't helping the situation but they seem to have gotten most of that under control now and it's been working really well.

Anyone else playing this on the PS4?

Yep it's addictive as fuck. Literally have to tear myself away from it. I think the key are the short intense rounds, they're just the perfect duration and absolutely overflowing with intensity.

Yea and even if you die early you can help your team by calling out enemies, etc rather than just sitting there. Everything just seems to work together. Even the maps have been carefully designed taking into consideration all of the operators and their gadgets and abilties. Nothing feels overpowered and there's no one answer to any situation.

Many places were extremely harsh with their reviews and gave some pretty low scores but just like with Driveclub, they were wrong.
