Riot intended to add a ranked “Competetive Mode” to Valorant, but they found a last-minute bug and so they’re holding it back – probably “for a day or two”. That’s OK. Numberwang can wait, because yesterday’s patch also added a surrender option. That’s a big deal, and I for one welcome it. It does mean you’ll sometimes wind up with unpleasant teammates who insist on giving up on games that can still be won, but it also means you don’t have to sit around allowing unpleasant teammates to make you miserable.
Riot have also tweaked the maps a bit, changed lots of abilities, and adjusted the slowing effect when you get shot “in part to up your chances of escape if you’re near cover”. It’s a big old patch, even without ranked.
