New Valorant Patch Competitive Gameplay
Ensuring a fair gameplay experience while maintaining the delivery of appropriate rewards for players sharing rank disparity is challenging. Yet, the Valorant Patch Notes reflect it’s solved, along with another significant problem that discouraged players from entering the competitive queue.
Valorant Smurf Fix – Ranked Queue Party Stack Adjustments
The act of playing Valorant with friends that share unequal Valorant ranks or huge rank disparity usually leads to experiencing smurfing. Smurfing is when a Higher Rank Valorant Player uses another account and competes with lower-ranked valorant players. Since this disrupts the Fairplay goal that developers idealize, here’s what’ll happen now:
All Ranked restrictions from 5-stack parties are removed for the Competitive Queue!
While this is a shocking move, it offers a logical solution to an otherwise impossible task in hindsight. The following examples should familiarize you with the modifications & outcomes in RR delivery for the Competitive queues for 5-stack parties.
- When all Players in a Party are under Diamond 2 Rank
- Extended Queue Times
- Reduced RR Rank Gains
-> For instance, the rank disparity is of one level where one player is Silver, and another is Platinum.
Such a case will have the team face a 50% RR reduction.
-> In another instance, the rank disparity is of four where one player is Bronze, and the Highest is Platinum.
Such a case will have the team face a 75% RR reduction.
- When One or Many Valorant Players in a Party are Diamond 3 or Higher
- Almost Indefinitely Longer Queue Times
- A Minimum of 50% RR Rank Gain Reduction + up to 90% for Higher Rank Disparity
-> For instance, facing team-wide 75% RR reduction where there are 4 Immortal Rank players and 1 Diamond Rank player.
- When a Party has One or Many Radiant Players
- Almost Indefinitely Longer Queue Times
- Minimum 75% RR Rank Gain Reduction to the complete 5-stack
-> Any Radiant rank player in a Competitive Queue with players below their rank will face a 90% RR Rank reduction.
Additionally, developers have removed 4 stack queue arrangements from the Competitive matches. This modification helps to prevent souring the gameplay experience of the 5th player or the other 4 players.
