How we design Agents // Dev Diaries - VALORANT

With the launch of Killjoy, we thought it’d be a good time to ask VALORANT’s Lead Character Designer Ryan “Morello” Scott about the “extreme intentionality” and roster impact of Agent Design (off-stream, of course).

I think the only bad thing about Valorant is the ban time. It is 5 hours for me, which is pretty much.

Killjoy is really cool. I'm actually playing her a lot and for some reason, she's easier to play than Sage and Reyna for me.

*MONEY MONGER RIOT GAMES - VALORANT* earlier for every round played we got 100xp and every round won gave 200 xp.. so 23 rounds in total i.e. 2300 xp + 13 rounds won i.e 2600 = 4900 now they even reduced the xp cos I only got 4k instead of 4.9k; where infact they should be giving more xp cos its last week. But they are more interested in people spending money for the next battlepass and the eagerness to do that will be more if you can't get the knife this battlepass.

Character idea: Gender:male Power:electric Skill 1: electric ball that can goes through walls and deals 50 damage to a player,has 2 charges Skill 2:he increases his speed to 2.0x for 5 seconds,only have 1 charge Skill 3:he can paralyze and in a straight line for 1 second,has 2 charges ultimate:he goes on a storm mode,he will have a speed boost of 3.0x for 60 seconds and ables to paralyze someone if he wants to. Hope this got picked up by VALORANT!

Hi, I am from the Philippines and i think the game is grate, its super pc friendly but the server is the problem, we constantly get ping spikes or sometimes all game lag then get punished for being afk when the game is literally unplayable, is there gonna be a server in South east asia?

This is going to be a long comment it might need a second comment to go with it but here is what I would want for the next agent His recharge ability would have 2 uses before needing 2 kills to replenish His 2nd ability would cost 300 for each charge His 3rd ability would cost 250 and would be the size of omens smoke His ult would need 8 ult points to aquire His recharge ability would be like cyphers camera where he can put it on walls but he wouldn't be able to see things with it instead it would be like cyphers cyber cage where he can detonate it wherever he is on detenation it would shoot out a beam of light which would blind the enemy for 6 seconds almost like breachs flash His next ability would have 2 charges and with it he could put down a portal. He could chose where the portal sends the enemy and the portal can only be used on one enemy and cannot be used for teammates. The portal would also be like cyphers trip wire where it turns invisible but when you get close you can see it His 3rd ability would have 1 charge and would surround an area like a smoke but everyone can see through it if you go inside you can get hit from players on the outside and if you are outside cant get hit from the inside. The barrier would have 550 health. His ult would be a portal the anyone can travel through. it would be like using a portal gun from the game portal and you can travel back and forth as many times as you want I think this would be a fun and very useful agent if he where in the game he will most definitely need some changes to balance him out.
