Hey guys! I’m here to talk to you about the new player experience, how it’s gonna work, and explain some of the rationales behind our decisions.
First off, let me say that there are a lot of players out there who have been playing for longer than 48 hours who are having serious trouble with certain content in the game. Our goal is to make sure players can reach a point where they feel comfortable with the game, its core mechanics and the various build possibilities before advancing down particular tracks (gear, leveling).
What are the ranks in valorant?
Valorant is a new system we’re implementing to allow the community to measure the speed and growth of its players. It will be used in addition to level, fame, skillset experience, etc., but it’s not meant to replace any of that (we’re not trying to implement some sort of “realm progression” here).
Valorant is a horizontal leveling system, and all players start at rank 1 with 0 Valorant. All existing player ranks will be reset to. Ranked players can show off their valor by equipping special items on the character overview screen, as well as via an account-level UI menu accessible from the main menu.
Valorant is a new shooter game that has taken the gaming world by storm
Valorant is the world’s most popular shoot-em-up game, with over 4 billion players around the globe. Still in closed beta testing, there are many exciting things in store for the upcoming open beta, including new maps, epic player characters, special events and much more. Valorant will be free-to-play, with a rotating set of free characters, maps and modes. The game is currently available only on the Valorant PC platform (Mac version coming soon).
The game is extremely competitive, and players are already ranking themselves on leaderboards
We will be using a special system to rank players with a unique ID that can be shown publicly on forums and elsewhere, so you can compare yourself against your friends. This will have no impact on any existing player identity or the leveling system as it exists now.
We will be introducing a new currency, Valorants (currently just referred to as V), which players will earn by playing the game and participating in tournaments. Players can then spend these Valorants on special items or player characters to give themselves an edge. All players will gain 1 free valorant per day at reset time, so it will be easy for everyone to get at least one new item each day.
There are many different ways to play Valorant, making it a versatile game for all sorts of gamers
Not only is there a free-to-play version of the game available (that gives you one character and map for free), there are also paid versions with additional content, including exclusive characters and maps. Valorant will feature rotating special modes such as Capture The Flag and King Of The Hill, giving players more variety than ever before.
There are plenty of game modes to keep you occupied until the official launch. We will be using Valorant as an opportunity to beta-test new features and gather critical feedback from our playerbase. This is why we can’t give out too many details on all of them at this point.
Valorant is an exciting, fast-paced new shoot-em-up game that everyone can enjoy. Whether or not you choose to pay for the extra content, there will always be plenty of free stuff to keep you entertained and give you something to strive for. We’re very excited about what we’ve been able to accomplish thus far and we hope to see you in the open beta!
