or is the banner screwed up for everyone at the top with that eye and a yellow bar, cant understand a thing its saying!

Its not just you. I guess someone screwed up somewhere or hacked the banner.

either it got hacked, the data went corrupt, or Ubi's up to some sort of advertising campaign using it like that.
it reminds me of the crosscom when it goes nutty in GRAW 2 on the 360

It comes out normal for me but then, it seems like the page refreshes all on its own, and the hacked banner appears... very spooky
Do you think that's an april's fool joke from one of the Not-So-Happy UBI customers? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

whats that little bit of Russian at the top, was that always there? Anyone read russian?

"Initiative will pass"
It doesn't seem to be written in proper Russian.
There's more at the bottom right of the banner.
"The initiative will proceed as planned."

I thought those might be lat long coordinates.
The Rev 6:4 is Revelations chapter 6 verse 4: Another came forth, a red horse. To him who sat on it was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.

uh huh, and thats here why? might be a prank, or some lunatic trying to get out some insane message that has meaning whatsoever... or it could be a warning , not damn likely

Hey, whats with the parachutes outside....what the hell, there shooting!....its the russians dammit! Red dawn. Wolverines.
Oh, nevermind, just a flashback.

I always thought a RED DAWN mod for old GR would have just been killer.
just had to add that, it's so rare RED DAWN ever comes up in conversation anymore. I have to put that in my netflix cue.

04-02-2007, 01:59 PM

Sunday 04.01.07 Death Tolls Continue
A civilian fixed-wing aircraft destined for Shannon International Airport crashed yesterday in southern Ireland, leaving 52 dead, including 12 children, and 14 others wounded. The plane's flight data recorder has not yet been recovered, but sources close to the investigation claim the plane crossed into a Flight Restriction Zone, which was only recently declared by the European Federation Wartime Aviation Administration (EFWAA). Officials could not be reached for comment.
Judging by the post date, it could be an April's Fool...but it's certainly not funny

I am following this on Planetrainbowsix (http://www.planetrainbowsix.com/#PQN522163). There seem to be quite a few pieces, scattered around, but it does seem to be on the US site, not any of the other international sites. That link to planetrainbowsix, takes you to a forum link where I have information from this thread posted, as well as the 3 news stories from ubisoft, and the link tot he banner ad, and links to the 10 mp3 news stories.
