With the release of Episode 3 of VALORANT on June 22nd, the Ranked Competition mode will experience a number of modifications. On a developer livestream today, contest designer Jon “EvrMoar” Walker spoke to Caster Rivington Bisland III about the upcoming improvements, including a rank reset and changes to how ranks are calculated When the game was released, we had a mechanism in place that changed the matchmaking rating (MMR) based on the number of games played in order to get players into the correct ranks as quickly as possible. After more than a year, the team decided that the system was no longer needed and was withdrawn. According to the developers, matchmaking accuracy has improved by 50% in the lower ranks, points after a single hard loss players are more likely to lose 15-20. However, as Walker pointed out, this will almost certainly lead to a lengthy process when it comes to gaining ranks Position to be determined. The maximum placement ranking has been increased from platinum three to diamond one, which makes it easier for Immortal-plus players to advance.
Due to the enormous number of Immortal players, the Immortal rank regains three places. The immortals one, two and three, however, are only added in the second act of episode three.
