OUR EFFORTS - Safety Precautions for COVID-19
Throughout the last few months, we have been tirelessly working with our partner, FACEIT, and the North American League teams to develop a controlled, safe, and competitive offline environment. Below are the different actions that will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety. Safety is of the utmost importance to Ubisoft, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver gold-standard safety measures and protocols.
__Before the event: __
Two-week mandatory quarantine for all players.
COVID-19 testing before and after the quarantine period.
During the event:
Daily temperature checks and COVID-19 screenings.
Face masks required.
Social distancing required.
Frequent sanitation of all high-touch surfaces.
COVID-19 test before departure on Sunday.
Each team will have their own private room reserved for select members of each organization. All equipment will be rigorously sanitized daily at the beginning and end of each day. All players will be asked to adhere to rules and regulations set during the bubble period, and any violation of the rules will result in dismissal from the site or disqualification entirely.

Continuing our tradition from previous events, we will release six dedicated charms for those who tune in during the Asia-Pacific, North American, Latin American, and European November Six Majors. As you can see from the charms’ design, we were planning on bringing the Major to the Netherlands. Even though we cannot hold the event as planned, we decided to keep the design, and can’t wait to meet you all once more at amazing events celebrating the Siege communities around the world. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy the show (and the drops!) from the safety of your home.
Drops began on October 30 with the first streams of the Latin America Six Major, with delivery on the release of the new season, so make sure you’ve synced your Twitch account with your Ubisoft Connect account to be able to earn the drops while watching the event. Your watch time will be accumulated across multiple Twitch channels and regional competitions; the more you watch, the more charms you’ll earn. There are six in-game weapon charms that can be universally equipped: Bronze, Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. The longer you watch, the higher-ranked the charm you will receive.
Copper: 2 hours watched
Bronze: 7 hours watched
Silver: 13 hours watched
Gold: 20 hours watched
Platinum: 25 hours watched
Diamond: 30 hours watched
How to register:
Register your account by heading over to https://drops-register.ubi.com and link your Twitch account to your Ubisoft account. You will then be prompted to opt in to the drops feature. That’s it – done! Head over to Twitch and start earning your rank. Please be aware that all earned rewards will be automatically added to your linked Ubisoft platforms.
__More information: __
Twitch Drops are activated for all three platforms the game is currently available on: PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You do not currently need to own Rainbow Six Siege to be able to earn charms. If you have your Twitch account linked to your Ubisoft account, and your Ubisoft account has been linked with your console accounts or PC, then you will receive the charm when you login for the first time after installing.
