[R6] Events are sent (and highlights captured) for the wrong player

It seems that GEP sends events of the wrong player in some cases - maybe if players are friends / in a party. - Not tested, but confirmed issue in logs / clips (attached)

While spectating: Kill #Rainbow 6 Siege | Captured by #Outplayed
Not dead (marked as dead): Death #Rainbow 6 Siege | Captured by #Outplayed
No kills (marked 2 kills of another player): Kill #Rainbow 6 Siege | Captured by #Outplayed

@Eyal just to update: so it’s looks like the issue here is that sometime killed teamate returns is_local":"1" while it shouod be is_local":"0".

Anyway, we are still trying to find on which scenario it’s happening and release a fix.


fixed. please update if there is any issue. closing.

@eransharv It seems that this issue is now resurfaced.
Can we please reopen this thread?

@Eyal, can you please send logs, the exact timeframe of the issue, and a video if possible? Without that, it will be hard to investigate.

@eransharv I don’t have the logs / exact timeframes I’m afraid.
It sounds similar to the old issue though, so might be related to that somehow.

@eransharv Was able to get the user logs and a video example.

Example videos where “OutPlayed showing that i got knocked down but i didnt get knocked down.”
(Can’t upload due to upload size limit, I can send it to you via slack if needed)

It sure sounds like the old bug…


@Eyal, We don’t see any logs from Nov 26 (the date of the video).
We’ll need new logs + exact time it happened + the user’s nickname.


I am closing this issue due to a lack of response.
You can always ask to reopen it by mentioning me with a @.
