Valorant recently released their ranked system online, and it doesn’t like players are quite satisfied with it. While the majority is dissatisfied with the game’s anti-cheat, this might just add fuel to the fire. The competitive mode is now available. Likewise, the non-competitive side is also present. Valorant’s matchmaking system has few criteria with which it judges and decides a player’s level.

Valorant Competitive Ranking System

Ziegler Updated on his Twitter about the new ranking system, and like any other game, it depends on a number of wins. 

  • Complete 20 Unrated matches to unlock Competitive mode
  • Eight ranks, three tiers each, except the top rank, VALORANT
  • Queue with up to 5-player parties must be within two ranks
  • Rank isn’t displayed if competitive matches aren’t played within 14 days, but your rank doesn’t decay behind the scenes.
  • The closed beta rank does not carry over to launch.

Since these are the general outlines, there are a few things which we must remember. These ranks will not carry over launch being the first and foremost point. “Winning games is the most important factor in gaining rank, but if you perform exceptionally well, your rank can go up faster.While on paper, this seems fair and looks pretty decent, it will take us some time to get used to this.

Even Shroud received his rank in Valorant and took to Twitter to show it off. Riot Games have come up with a brilliant solution it seems.

Whoever you party with must be within two ranks (6 tiers) from you. This requirement is to help ensure that there isn’t a huge skill disparity in games where one player is clearly above or below the average skill of other players in the match.”
