Developers at Riot Games revealed more details about the upcoming competitive mode for Valorant. In a blog post on the Valorant site on Friday, a member of Riot’s competitive team announced that the popular game’s first game will be released in a competitive mode shortly after patch 0.49 disappears, and the first regions those that get the competitive format will be Europe and North America.
A rating system similar to that of Riot games is used, with eight levels: iron, bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, immortal and valorant, the highest rank of the game. All except Valorant have three levels within each rank. Players must first complete 20 unrated games to unlock competitive mode, and games allow up to five players. All players in the same game must be within two rows of each other.
The competitive mode is first launched in a closed beta and sometimes during the beta the competitive matchmaking feature & # 39; close while we work on refining the model and recording your feedback & # 39 ;. The blog post also mentioned that some of the features in competitive mode will be designed to ensure fairness in the game and reduce maneuvers, such as smurfs, a practice where highly skilled players create fake profiles to play less competition.
No announced release of patch 0.49 has been announced.
