Rainbow Six Siege: the end of an era, the curtain falls for Pengu

Rainbow Six Siege: the end of an era, the curtain falls for Pengu

Rainbow Six Siege

It goes without saying how important Niclas "Pengu" Mouritzen (along with some of his colleagues, of course) was in the development of the competitive scene of Rainbow Six Siege. The G2 player is considered a true legend of the Ubisoft shooter; a reputation built for five long years.

Pengu has formalized its withdrawal from the competitive scene by entrusting the message to Twitter and a video (the one you can see attached to the news is from G2) in which in just over three minutes you can admire some of the moments best experienced by the pro player over the years.

Since 2016 the boy has excelled, together with his team, in over thirty tournaments. His rise began with winning the title in the first season of the Pro League on PC. His successes are due to alchemy with other legends: Fabian "Fabian" Hällsten, Daniel "Goga" Romero, Joonas "Joonas" Savolainen and Juhani “Kantoraketti” Toivonen, all from Penta, all later from G2.

And it is precisely with the organization of Ocelote that Pengu and his companions have created something incredible: a battleship impossible to scratch, since the Paris Major in 2018. Of course, there have been difficult moments, especially between 2019 and 2020, but the team has always known how to defend itself by staying among the top seeds.

Pengu remains one of the most successful players ever with three Invitationals , plus a Six Major and an unimaginable amount of Pro League seasons. The latest success in order of time dates back to last January, at the finals of the E uropean League 2020 snatched from BDS.

Pengu, therefore, retires from the scene to follow a path that other of his colleagues have already taken in the past and which has become almost the natural landing place for former players after retirement: he will become a content creator, too if the hope for the player is to return to export perhaps with a different role (analyst, coach or caster).

As we know before his retirement Pengu has repeatedly expressed his discontent with the state of Siege and for the psychophysical stress that had begun to make it difficult for him to continue his career.

GLHF Pengu.

New Rainbow Six Siege Update Re-Enables Fuze On Test Server, Implements Bug Fix For Flores

Ubisoft has released a new patch for Rainbow Six Siege, which adds Fuze back to the game, though only on the PC test server. The patch also implements several bug fixes.

Fuze was removed from all Siege playlists (except for Custom) via an update on February 26. Picking the operator was causing an issue that would make Siege crash. The bug attached to the operator is now supposedly fixed, though Ubisoft is keeping him on the test server for now.

As mentioned before, the patch also fixes several in-game bugs. Among them is a bug that was affecting Flores, Siege's latest operator, who was added in Year 6, Season 1: Crimson Heist. The patch fixes a bug that prevented players from hearing Flores' RCE-Ratero Charges going off on the other side of a wall.

The full patch notes are listed below.
