Valorant’s latest Episode 5 got out last month and we have been having fun trying out the new map and a new rank. To add on top of this, Riot always releases a new patch every two weeks, either to patch bugs or send out new updates.

Valorant is introducing some new agent updates and more with the upcoming patch. Some of these updates were long due and looking forward to seeing them go live.

New Smurf Detection

The working of the new system is in such a way that, for all new accounts players will play against the same skill level. Which Riot figures out by the unrated matches which are compulsory to complete to play rank. The skill level of each player will update with each match, so if someone tries to skim off to any higher-rank player, the level will update to the appropriate MMR.
