If you play Ubisoft games and are subscribed to unifi, then you may have had this happen to you. There are reports of gamers on unifi having their connection to Ubisoft servers blocked.
One of the earlier and more prominent ones came from Avixes, or Mohamad Amirul Mohamad. He leads the Southeast Asian Rainbow 6 Siege team, under Lese Esports. Using public DNS does not solve the issue either. According to a followup by the official unifi Twitter account, it looks like there were more who have faced this issue.

This connection issue is also one that only affects unifi subscribers. According to WTM Today, Mohamad Amirul also says that other players subscribed to Maxis or Time were not affected, and are able to continue playing Rainbow Six Siege.
As for the ISP’s response to the matter, it would appear that it is not restricting access to the server. At least, not intentionally. The ISP is currently investigating the matter with Ubisoft.
We received a number of queries in regards to accessing to ubisoft server. To clarify, we are not restricting access to the server. We are currently looking into this together with ubisoft and will share update on this soonest.ADVERTISEMENT

For now, it’s unclear what’s the cause behind the entire thing. For what it’s worth, unifi’s clarification at least serves as an assurance that the blocked connection to Ubisoft servers were not supposed to happen.
