Valorant Matchmaking

Valorant’s Senior Competitive designer Evr Moar, took to Twitter to inform the public on how the Valorant making system works. And as you might have assumed, it mostly works on each player’s MMR.

To sum up, the matchmaker will view individual MMR and try to find a player with MMR close to theirs. At the same time maintaining a close enough combined MMR of the team.

So, the process starts with comparing your elo with the players who have been in the queue the longest. And match the MMR as they go along the way. And this process repeats till they find a good match for us.
