Alright, so me and 2 friends are arguing on wether we should buy Rainbow Six Siege. I don't feel like it's worth it. If not, any other multiplayer games good for 3 players?

You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a flame war on /pol/" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go to /v/ when looking for good video games"!
My favorite co-op experiences that you could do with 3 players would have to be Terraria, Call of Duty Zombies, and Borderlands 2. Try one of those if you somehow haven't yet.
CS:GO is also great to get into.
Fuck this guy
The severs are still shit so if you're looking for something now then siege isn't the best, but I play it daily at this point and it's fun when the fucking servers don't force a 3v5 in ranked
I just rent it atm but it's one of the best shooters I've played in a very long time I am completely hooked on it. I wouldn't say it's worth £50 but I'm sure you can get it cheaper.
The only let down is some times the servers take ages to load you into a game but for the most part it's fine.
I've been playing it 3 hours or so a day for most of the month and I'm still loving it. It's nice to have to think about tactics ratber than havings dicks running amok in CoD.
i played the beta thats why i said that in the first place, its just not worth 60 eurococks for multiplayer only
If you like tactical shooters, buy it. If you're the type of guy who complains about camping in shooters, don't buy it. I have 100 hours in Siege. It's fucking fantastic. Get it cheap somewhere if you have to.
Rainbow Six Siege is a fair example of how corporate asshats like Ubisoft can ruin an actuall good game. I give the devs props for not taking the safe route with the fps genre by making it Battlefield or COD-esque, but the tactical and slower approach.
But Ubisoft fucked up badly with poor servers and whats worse, they sent the devs on a two wek vacation because of holidays while disableing ranked matches.
So unless they fix the FUCKING SERVERS this game is dead.
Worth it? yes, BUT ONLY IF THEY FIX THE FUCKING SERVERS
If you can get it for cheaper on keysites for example get it, it's a great and super fun shooter and fills in a niche if you don't want CS, COD, zombie x3, wannabe milsim or straightout milsim.
The patch today helped a lot with the matchmaking, it's still not perfect but most of the time it will find a game within a few seconds. I've been playing all day and only a couple of times have we had to wait longer than a minute.
Pretty much this exactly.
I personally love Siege, however it is a bitch to play with friends, unless you have changed your NAT type or port forward, because Ubisoft.
That said, it's insanely fun if you don't mind being able to die instantly and permanently.
Got 100 hours in it.
I'd get it for $30-20 if you enjoyed Rainbow Six in the past and want a 5v5 multiplayer game focusing on recreating that.
It's a lot of fun alone, with friends it will probably work out a lot better for you. If your friends are casual and unwilling to adapt it may turn shit quickly because it's all about outwitting your opponents. If they are addicted to GO it probably won't go well either because Siege isn't good enough to be e-sports yet and they will nitpick it to death.
Battles seem quite unique with the destruction and gadget placement and keeps things fresh but it's all about tense 5v5 matches there is really very little else.
though i like the good news i think its a bit early to spend my money on it, ill just wait for one more week, see how things are, then buy it.
Otherwise ill just spend it on dragon dildos to shove it up my ass
I heard everyone dropped this a week after it gained some traction on /v/. Is it true? I'd love a long lasting co op twin stick shooter but don't want to buy it to realise it was FOTM shit.
It is incredibly fun, but only if you have a couple friends to join you in pubs, teamwork is the most fun.
The only problem is the PC version has really bad servers. DC really often and get a bit of lag here and there, really puts a dent in an otherwise super fun game.
Honestly though I wouldn't get it for full price, I got it on sale for about 45 bucks which I am pretty happy with.
Underbarrel shotgun for the attacker. Possibly bear traps for the defender.
It's not worth $60.
It is, however, a damn good game. I picked it up 2 days ago and have already sunk 10 hours in. Without a doubt the most dynamic multiplayer shooter out there in terms of how things can go down. If you pick off the only guy capable of breaching reinforced walls, all of the sudden attackers have to come up with a new plan and defenders watch far fewer entries. That change of plan translates to almost ever action in a match, and carries the game upon its knack for being novel in almost every encounter.
The other nice thing is that its a very specific kind of game. It has a measured tempo up until a big firefight where everything goes tits up and people die quick. What that means is that very specific kinds of people are playing it, such as those that enjoy ""tactical"" shooters and slower, more methodical gameplay. I've had no trouble finding pleasure in playing "casual" solo because you're less likely to find an unskilled and uncooperative player then, say, CoD or Battlefield. The ranked mode is locked until level 20, maybe 20-25 hours worth of playtime, and I'd imagine once I get there it's really only people who care to play and win.
I had money to burn so it wasn't any trouble picking it up. If you're looking for something new in a shooter, and aren't living paycheck to paycheck where $60 is a big investment, pick it up.
also you will run into many wall hackers already.(at least in higher ranks) Theres also no way of reporting someone other than going onto the forums and making a topic i think. they really fucked that one up
Played every closed beta and I can safely say that if you have a couple friends to play with, its worth it. $60 is a bit hefty for a multiplayer only experience so doing solo with pubs would just make one salty forever.
You can use pings which will place a yellow marker on your teams hud or spot enemies with your drone if you don't have a mic, and it obviously supports text chat.
However, spotting with your drone will alert the enemy team to the fact that they've been spotted, they will shoot your drone and reposition in response, you can fuck their plan up a lot better if you don't spot and just tell everyone where the bad guys are sitting.
The most annoying shit is when a teammate has lost their drone, you just get yours into a good hiding spot and then said teammate starts spotting while spectating you, giving away your position.
They should really only give them that option until after the prep phase is over when spotting is actually needed.
When you've placed a drone well just turn it around to face the wall, this has the added bonus of not only stopping this bullshit, but hiding the little red light on your drone and making it much harder for the enemies to spot as well.
It's actually a great game, especially with friends. We cant stop playing it. It does have issues though, and I'm not sure if I can fully recommend it. The two main things that bug me are the netcode (although supposedly the patch today fixed most the issues, i played a bunch of games today and had no issues) and the fact that there's micro transactions in a $60 MULTIPLAYER ONLY GAME. The micro transactions are just for ugly ass cosmetic skins, but still, it's stupid as fuck that a multiplayer only game that most people have trouble justifying paying for has micro transactions to boot.
I've put ~200 hours into it so far though and haven't been slowing down, get it if you want a tactical shooter that allows for tons of memes and antics.
oh, one more thing.
BUY IT ON A KEYSITE. DONT BUY IT ON STEAM/UPLAY. I GOT MINE FROM CJ'S CDKEYS, THEY HAVE IT FOR $40 BUCKS AND MOST KEYSITES HAVE IT FOR THE SAME PRICE.
The game is fun but I wouldnt consider it worth 40 schhlongs.
