why in the fuck do sage players botfrag?>bro im playing sage it's ok bronigger you're 0:12this isn't overwatch, you've got a gun. use it.
>>436006>this isn't overwatchthat's where you're wrong mister ching chong
>>436006Have you ever considered just being less of a whiny little bitch?
t. lurking exit-fragging reyna
>>436208excuse you that's the top fragging entry fragging reyna to you.I entry, win the aimduel, then because i have 50 ping and the enemy trading out has 20, i fucking die because my dismiss doesn't fucking work
>>436006sage players are for the most part retarded in solo queue.your one and only job is to wall mid on defense and to zone plant site on attack (i.e. walling b site on split or truck on bind)somehow most people havent figured this out and need explicit directions on how to do their job every game, even in decent elos.the absolute worst of the bunch though are the faggots who watch "2000 iq off angle sage walls" videos on youtube and try to recreate them in game, usually making them an easy target and end up losing the game over trying to hit cliips.fuck those people and fuck that faggot grim.
>>437821Grim and that shotgun sage faggot made sage players the worst. Especially when the bucky was busted.>Wall mid on splitThat'll just get shot down immediately except on pistol rounds, it's a waste of credits.
>omen spams his smokes>uses his flash>teleports twice>diesyeah nice job dickhead what was that for?
>>437934>That'll just get shot down immediately except on pistol rounds, it's a waste of credits.say what you want, it works in my games, even if it does just slow down a split b push or prevent a heaven flankst. plat
>guy spamming the window on haven garage, which I didn't even peek>randomly snaps to fire 2 bullets into my head at a random part of the wall an arbitrary distance from the window, before going back to spamming a couple more shots at the window that I can see as I watch my death animation>218 damage in 2 hitshe toggled, right?
>>438208>stand in a wallbangable spam spot>get wallbang spammed i wonder
>>438224he didn't spam me retard, can you read? He was spamming the WINDOW. You know, the opening? Then randomly fired ONLY TWO bullets into a random spot on the wall not close to the window, both headshotting me. As soon as the second bullet hit, he went back to spraying like 3 more bullets into the window opening as if he never snapped to me.Try to actually comprehend what you're reading.
reyna is such a fucking fun character holy shit
>>438208>>438230Such is life in a game with no replays. It is a mystery.
>>438473Why does riot hate replays on a conceptual level?
>>438659who fucking knows, they have it for League but not Valorant for some fucking reason.Pros are kinda happy about since other teams can't rip their strats exactly, but it'd be nice to see where someone was aiming when it look like you got running headshoted from a vandal.
how would you make yoru not dogshit?
>>439135remove him from the game
>>438328OP piece of shit with a kit perfect for 1v9ing in solo queue
>>439135Lower volume of his TP both when it's traveling and when the TP is activated. It should be as subtle as Omen's where you're not sure where he TP'd only that he did in the rough vicinity.Buff vision range in ult.Make his TP about as smooth as Jett's Dash. Even though Jett is fucking obnoxious, I don't see why Yoru can get some of that get out of jail free card.Don't allow any utility to detect or interact with him while he's in his ult. Why the fuck does Skye's cabbages know where he is while he's literally running in another dimension?Idk what to do about footsteps, they're only useful for baiting out or triggering utility.>>439141This, Reynas are so goddamn braindead, I'm glad the bitch got nerfed
When the fuck are they going to announce Deadeye's abilities. Where the fuck are the leaks holyshit
>>439219picking reyna basically announces to the whole match that you think you're better than everyone in the game.either you're horribly mistaken and eat shit and botfrag, or are infact scream's bastard son and instantly delete the entire enemy team.have you ever even seen a mid score reyna?
>>439223I've seen them second top frag. Being second to cringe Jett Opers and hyper movement Jett knives kills.
>>439224seeing two fags instalock jett and reyna is basically a coinflip for being able to stomp while you go AFK, or instantly losing.
It's the 'support can feed' mentality that lolfags carried over to Valorant. Play CSGO.
>Deadeye delayed for two weeksWell fuck
>>440287jesus.what's the lore power rankings now?astra probably still has the highest potential, but the frog just kept brim in the fucking G-man stasis.

>other team is on an eco>round starts>"GET OUT OF MY WAY">"OUI OUI CROISSANT">flawless round>nobody on the other team boughtwhat the fuck was riot thinking
>>440459the free awp will be the first 9 point ult in valorant.no fucking way it's gonna be cheap as fuck.
>>440459They probably are gonna give Chamber's rifle has to have the same treatment as the gold gun orb. Or have very limited ammo.
>>440459>>440464>>440465https://youtu.be/WHnI-AHW9coYeah just what I expected>Sherrif is 100 credits per bullet, capped at 8>Rifle is seven ult points but has only 5 bullets
>>440326is the sniper rifle not hitscan?
>>440472I would think so.
>>440321>op is broken and so it's used exclusively by one agent>instead of fixing it, riot makes a new agent with an exclusive op, also they made it stronger>everyone asks for sheriff to one tap at all ranges>instead of fixing it, they give the new agent an exclusive sheriff that one taps at all ranges, also they gave it ads>yoru's tp is shitty and not instant like in his cinematic trailer>instead of fixing it, they give the new agent an instant tp, also they made it reusable and redeployable?????
>>440490That's rito for ya
>>440470>100 creds per bullet, capped at 8Not a good eco choice since you can get 5x more bullets just buying a sherrif, only reason I would buy a bullet or two is if I have extra cash. That is assuming you can keep unused bullets after dying.On second thought, you could build up your ammo over the rounds and could be fully loaded on an eco round. Even better if you have ult too.>Rifle is seven ult points.This is a good start. His abilities do kill but it's based on the mechanical skill of the player instead of the braindead noob friendly Raze nade that inflates stats.>5 bulletsGood. Make every shot count.>Any direct hit is a kill, including leg shots. If the ammo count was any higher, I'd be pissed about this.>MAKES A SLOW AOE EFFECT IF SOMEONE GETS HITwhat the fuck? How long does the slow effect last? It'll be fucking easy to track anyone that's slowed.>Hurr durr it's an ult Anon.I know, still bullshit though.
>>441930>but bullets on rounds you have extra money>eco comes up>fully loadedactually not a bad idea.
More gameplay on Chamber as well as more info on his TP and alarmbot ability.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx23uSFk3Yc>TP is louder than Yoru's>TP has a set range limit (same radius as a spike explosion)>TP is instant, but reequipping your weapon takes a while.>TP can be destroyed so place them strategically.Overall, neat positioning tool. Just make sure you're in a safe spot.>Alarmbot isn't invisible, but you're not tethered to it like KJ.>You get two of them, they cost 150 each.>You can't recall them, once they're placed, that's it.Still a neat tool to gather information across the map. They're cheaper than Cypher's tripwires so the downsides aren't that bad.Nothing new on headhunter, only that the equip time is faster than the sheriff. Same damage numbers and there is no damage fall off.Also his operator has faster a faster fire rate than operator
>>441930>braindead noob friendly Raze nade that inflates stats.great for people with shit aim like me. Thanks rito
how do you play other duelists?.t braindead reyna main that just takes drypeek 1v1s because i've got good aim for my rank but bad gamesensenot having literally 550 HP when I ult is cringe

I should play this game again, I ended up stopping because my group of friends stopped playing and going solo feels like gambling for good times, since sometimes you'll be with fun people who try to use tactics and communicate but other times you'll be matched with real negative nancies getting everyone down in chat
>>450796I've run into a good batch of people, a lot of players I run into are pretty fucking funny or just chill.
>>450796you can try LFGing. your team might end up being complete shit but at the very least you will have comms throughout the whole match
fracture and breeze suck so much ass it's unbelievablewhat were they thinking?
>>454506breeze is fun!only map to really get to use the guardian and marshal instead of the more traditional options for ecos and half buys.fracture is fun if you like farming ult orbs
>>454550i hate the whole mid to A area so much, also the metal thing
>>454577i feel like metal door should be way fucking louder than it is.
>>454506I feel like Breeze would be a good map if the devs scaled it down about 20%.
>>454666you'd be right, I like the breeze map, I just hate that it's a sniper fest.
i am one of the many who watched that asian youtuber's video about the guardian being the best weapon in the game and decided to switch to maining the weapon full time. its so fucking good bros. i literally farm kids the entirety of matches, and by the end of my games there are AT LEAST 3 other people who start buying the guardian until the match is over.will it get nerfed?
>>455423qrd? should i ADS with it or is it that good with hipfire
>>455434https://youtu.be/vMA3g83Ed6sqrd is>ads is 1.5x>forces you to learn proper crosshair placement>much lower recoil tapping compared to vandal tapping>one of the few high penetration weapons>buyable almost every round
>>455423I'm starting to wake up to that myself. Tired of the vandal scamming me out of my shots, and tired of the phantom jewing me with damage fall off.
>Chamber is out on the PBEthose lucky fucks
This game is kinda shit but it's my go to when I don't wanna play CS with my friends.I'm silver 2 and constantly top frag in lobbies where all my teammates are gold or plat. They all fucking suck though, who do I play to carry myself with?Also wall bangs in the game are lame a shit, why is there 0 fucking real cover in this game? Also fracture shouldn't be in the competitive pool it sucks balls and if you don't pick KJ on it you're brainless
>>456356Pick Reyna or Jett.>Why is there 0 fucking real cover in the game.Dumb Devs, but they made an effort to make less wall bangable radianite crates
how do you play raze?I'm pretty decent at jett but raze just feels too slow to really get any value out of her movement.and requires too much crosshair fuckery to do the sick double satchel entries consistently.
>>456685Raze is for people who still play Quake/Unreal or spent too much time in CS surf servers.
as a Sova main, i wish people would just listen to my callssay it's a 2v3 scenario and we planted the bomb, i know how to execute the enemy planting the bomb and then bringing it down to a 2v2 with shock darts, but even if i tell my teammates they won't fucking listen and just sperg and rush to try to to kill the enemyi'm plat so that's probably why i only have shit teammates

>>458009I main him and can honestly say you'll have a lot of fun trapping people and having map-wide information.He's great for shutting down shitters that want to turboflank, and he's great at locking down a site.
>>458009Shit's free, give it a shot. You have a play for a couple games before it lets you unlock an agent for free. Then you can play as Cypher. He's a lot of fun but he requires a bit of map knowledge to play well.
does valorant still require ring 0 access? I've been wanting to try out the game but kinda hesitant cuz I heard like a yr ago about the kernel driver stuff.

god damn chamber is so much funthe teleports are epic but don't instapick him if im in the game pls
>>463184literally no one gives a fuck that riot is a subsidiary of tencent. to think that youre going to have your identity stolen by some guy in china because you installed league or valorant on your computer is completely delusional. its actually cringe that people think spamming chink memes is doing the lords work because to them riot is part of a massive nefarious plan to back door gamers' information to china, and cant even ponder the thought that maybe, just maybe, its business and nothing else.>inb4 okay changim white. you china doomsday niggers are just fucking faggots. let people talk about video games without inserting your social commentary.

>>464978Facts no printer, omen hits different no cap
>you want to play let's playway too fucking long of a voiceline
I don't mind playing against Chamber in classic mode because he's a solid all around agent that you can still easily play against, but fuck me if I don't despise seeing Chamber players in Spike Rush. It really takes the fun away from the mode when everyone is stuck in a "make it work" scenario with a random weapon and the only possibility of a different weapon is finding and capturing a weapon/golden gun orb, and the faggot zoomer can still rely on his revolver and sniper whenever he wants. It's especially annoying in shotgun rounds.>inb4 don't play spike rushI don't always have the time for a full match and it's a good warm-up, fuck you.
If I get killed by a fucking lucky shot one more time in immortal, I'm gonna fucking kill myself I swear to godI'm so fucking tired of running headshots, and flick shots that never in a million years in a good FPS would someone actually hit.I even hit them too, literally running down mid on icebox, hit a jett who was peeking it with an op and spray fired and tapped her in the head, like what the fuck dude
>>465036???It's not even the longest one.
>>465048play replication lol
>>470826It's what I've been doing lately, yes. A shorter match with lower stakes is what I like about Spike Rush, not necessarily the mode itself, and now I don't have to deal with Chambers in SR.I dunno man, am I being a stick in the mud or is chamber in SR as annoying as I feel like he is? Bucky and Stinger rounds are a pain in the ass when he pulls out his faggot revolver.
>one tap someone with a jett knife>feel like im literally god's gift to this earthwhat makes it so good to use bros?
So, I am watching some Valorant tournament rn and everyone use the same gun and sometimes AWP. What's the point of other weapons then?

>>472175>b-b-b-but we were saving strats for champions and didnt have a coach all year!!!They were hyped up to be a dynasty for the entire fucking year lol. Nice job crashing out of the past 2 LANs after their flash in the pan
>>472161>AWPfuck me I just realized it's called the operator because it's the AWPerator kekalso most of the guns in these games are simply not viable, SMGs are a fucking joke and so are all secondaries except for classic and ghost, the bucky and marshal are non-guns and the entire middle row is situational at bestmachine guns are funny on low elo and useless at higher ranks tooin practical terms, the only guns in the game are the operator, phantom, vandal, classic, and ghost, with the bulldog and guardian being okay if you're poor and everything else just straight up worthless
>>472268So it is badly designed game then. Well, I already figured it out, when I found out that moving makes your accuracy non-existent. It is slow game for boomers who prefer to autistically watch at the same spot for minutes. Literal fucking scam instead of a game.
the meltdown on twitter is probably the greatest thing to come out of this lan so far
>>472377It's fun to pass the time from time to time, but yes, it's a badly designed game. Weapon balance is out the ass, you take a single step and the accuracy goes to shit, you get hit once and you're both immobile and probably dead if you can't kill your opponent first because the TTK is minuscule (meaning that armor is pretty much useless save for edge cases).I don't mind the hero/class oriented design because it does bring variety to the table, but as far as variety is concerned there's only a handful of maps and they range from alright to outright bad.It's cs 1.6 all over again, basically. An objectively bad game that can be fun to pass the time but that you shouldn't ever take seriously. But at least cs 1.6 had a lot of modding tools and maps, so it still wins out in the end.
>>472421holy shit why is every single retard on 4chan a running and gunning retardyou stop pressing w, then you shoot.armor stops you from getting oneshot.
>>472429I don't run and gun, I mean that literally any movement triggers the run and gun prevention so it's unnecessarily difficult to reposition and respond to enemy fire during an engagement because even if you stop moving the accuracy drop is already in place, made worse by the fact that getting hit slows you down to a crawl. If you get hit once your only real option is to stay put and pray that the enemy is already in your field of view or you'll be dead by the time you can turn around.It's an objectively badly designed game with subpar gunplay made to mame abilities seem better in comparison, or enabling abilities to make your chances less shit.Fun tho.

do you guys sperg out and start yelling gamer words on the mic when you lose in this game?
>>474450i just say >shit/fuck/gnlglsgnlsgnisdglisd *agent* *damage*
I've only been playing this game for two weeks and I can already tell that most of the posts in this thread are fucking retarded jesus christ.
>fuckall discussion of the game in 4chan outside of this threadIs the game just unpopular on this website?
>>474579I thought it was just unpopular for the longest time but it turns out it’s huge basically everywhere else. Guess CS isn’t really something that’s ever talked about here either though
>>474579Kinda weird, I think that whole tencent chink anti-cheat scare stomped out any talk of the game.I remember there was a /vag/ general (yes, they did that on purpose) but it would always die.I don't know man, it's a good game albeit with obnoxious gameplay but I have fun with it.
>>474597speaking of anticheat is val just as cheater infested as csgo?
>>474601No. They're actually on top of the cheater problem unlike csgo
>>474601I've never even heard of a cheater in Valorant so at the very least the invasive anticheat seems to work.
We should try making a general in /vg/ all the other Riot games are there
>>475036And talk about what? If there's nothing valuable in an occasional discussion like this, imagine how shit a general would be.
>>475042talk about waifus you uncultured swine. that would pad the general by at least 300 posts.
>>473430maybe work on everything else anon
>>475081Valorant has an incredibly weak waifu game. The girls themselves are fine but the graphical fidelity is low, they don't release much official art, there's no costume DLC and basically no side content or any sort of pandering at all. We couldn't discuss Viper's ass for long enough.
make touching phoenix wall as an enemy instantly drain 30 armor or somethingit's too easy for an enemy to just push your wall for no consequence
isn't valorant popular enough to have a general on /vg/? whats up with the all the chink shit on that board instead of the best tac fps?
>>476757not on 4chan apparently. valorant general threads just died off naturally
>>476757its too hardcore and stressful to play
>26 and 12>next highest teammate has 10 kills>lose but match mvp>lowest rank in the lobbyokay.
>85 rr to gold 1PLEASEI BEG YOUI WANT TO STOP BEING A SHITTERAND START BEING AVERAGE
funny how this game got a lot of shit for its anticheat but genshin got away scot free
the friends i play with are all gold 2+how do i get good as a silver 2 shitter and stop being a drag on them
>>477924Practice, dude, grind deathmatch, watch pros. Idk what you expect people to tell you.
>>477845Valorant's level of anti-cheat is actually very common. The difference between it and what something like Apex runs is just that Valorant's honest. Valorant's ironically gotten fucked a ton for doing the right things and being straight with its players while Riot has gotten away for years up until now being predatory in League. World ain't fair.
Damn, so many gold shitters in this thread. Immortal is so dogshit, too many people who play like a plat player up here, and no mic niggers because "muh social anxiety" or "omg I'm a woman" like just fuck off and comm dumb bitch
Can someone please tell me what forearm workout routine Chamber uses?
>>478365It's just swelling from him slapping his arm to pull out his ult.
Why are the skins in this game so expensive?Granted being able to directly purchase skins is a lot better than lootbox circus, but it's still shitty.
What happened these last few days? Why do I always get paired with some troll or smurf or ragequitter? Is there like a separate pool for this scum where you get thrown into if you say nigger one time too many?
>>479808>Is there like a separate pool for this scum where you get thrown into if you say nigger one time too many?God I hope so.
>>479808Based Chinese know how to segregate the mentally challenged from the normal people
I decided to finally try out this game a couple days ago. Why does it feel like I can never kill someone when they peak me? In counter strike I have no problem holding angles and killing people as they run out. But in this game I feel like I can't get a single shot off before they do when they swing on me. Is the netcode really shit or something and giving them insane peakers advantage?
Is there enough time to finish my battle pass? I'm up to tier 35 now, and haven't played for 2 weeks
>>479808bro if you lose twice in a row just play death match or take a break for the dayyou lose because this stuff gets to your head, it's simple
>>480523there is some level of peeker's advantage but you're probably getting used to the gamei tried cs again a few days ago and i fucking suck, while in valorant i'm at least averageplay more deathmatch
Fucking immortalniggers that don't comm fuck off, "WHY ARENT YOU PEEKING WITH ME" because I'm holding a fucking angle and you held W by yourself. Anytime I get anyone that can comm its a dub, but anytime I get players that can't comm its 70/30 lose or win.
now that the dust has settled split is probably the worst map in the gameyou cannot have fun on this map
>>482657just play jett razeez funbut that applies to most maps.
>>482658i play jett sometimes and it's not really that funraze is fun but i'm SHIT with satchels, i can't figure out the timing with complex stuffi know just practice but i just don't think it's worth it
>>482664split is THE raze map other than maybe ascent.it's so fun to jump down from heaven, convert your vertical momentum to horizontal and zoom at supersonic speeds behind them.then get instantly headshot because that reyna is a cheating piece of shit i swear to fucking god fucking riot fix your anticheat
What agent should be my first free unlock?I am really bad at this game.
>>482667depends, do you want to go head in into bomb sites and maybe die but also maybe guarantee the round for your team by killing everyone or do you want to provide utility?you can choose inbetween but you need to say how much you want to rely on abilities/utilites or gunplayjust don't go for astra or cypher yet, if you want you can try them later
>>482665honestly it's a good jett map too but i just despise it (the map)but yeah as i said i suck at it
>>482671I am shit at the gunplay, so I want to rely more on skills and utility. From the five starter agents, I am performing less worse with Sova.
>>482673sova is my main, it's an S tier agentif you get used to his kit he can easily win roundssage's heal is good for low elo and her walls are mandatory on a lot of mapskilljoy is the best agent to hold bomb entry, probably the agent with most utilityviper is really good too and can make bomb entry trivialhonestly just play sova until you get the hang of map positions and what other characters dobut you'll need to work on the aim either way
>overwatch/paladins>respawns, run and gun>everything is fun and games>skills are way too powerful, to the point where guns don't really matter>too many stuns and CC>everyone is a damage sponge>almost a moba in first person>valorant>high lethality guns, skills are secondary>too much tactcool gameplay>can't even hit anything without standing completely still>almost no maps and only plant/defuse bomb objective mode>no respawns, have to sit back and watch some retard crawl around for minutes>pretty much a CS ripoff with some skills and worse mapsWhy can't anyone make a proper fast paced FPS game with skills and heroes?IMO, Dirty Bomb is the one that got the closest to a good balance between high lethality hitscan weapons, skills and classes. Too bad the development of DB was a huge mess and it didn't had a huge company to back it.
Why play this game over Counter-Strike?The whole time I was trying it I thought "this game would be great, if CS didn't exist."
>>482974Yeah, but can you have a clutch situation in a game with respawns?
>>436211I play on 107-112 and dismiss works fine for me.I play on 50 ping into 7 and, wanna take a guess here: dismiss works for mestop being bad, stop playing duelist cunt
Vandal or Phantom?
>>483256Phantom. Vandal's advantages would be okay but there's enough smokes/walls still in the game that the Phantom's a more logical decision.>>476757Tac shooters like that don't have much to discuss long term so discussion dies off fast if players don't wanna play together. If you want your tac shooter thread to survive you need the power of autism or the power of content to fuel it.
>>483266Basically we need more Viper porn to have a general. The potential is there.
Would Valorant be a video game people play if Riot didn't make it? Horrid gunplay... play R6 if you actually wanna have fun with a TFPS
>>483358Yes.I own siege and even I don't play that shit.
why so many asian girls play valorant? and conversely why all the european girls (nordic, russian, etc.) play csgo?
How can I get good at the Marshall? I'm dogshit at snipers in general.
>>483425That's the problem. I'm pretty comfortable with getting headshots with the Vandal and Guardian, but I can't perform the same when sniping.
>>483429https://www.reddit.com/r/VALORANT/comments/fx3eze/11_scoped_sensitivity/try this it helped me.yes reddit cringe and all that but we're playing valorant so that's a moot point.
>>483432thanks, too bad there isn't sniping servers like in CS to practice
It's this phenomenon in video gaming where people think that support roles are>easier to play>ok if performing worse>not as demandingWhereas in reality it's the hardest role to play. This is true for all games, not just valo, but in valo specifically the overshit/tf2 refugees for some reason think that if a character has heal then it's a support character, meanwhile 80% of the gameplay revolves around gunfighting of which all characters are equally capableNobody's bothered to explain to them that jett (OMG ADC DUELIST INITATIOR!!!!!) doing double smoke and dashing in does more "support" each round than a sage does throughout the entire game combinedPeople still can't understand valorant, given gold3 is like top30% of players or whatever. It's completely mental how bad the player base is
>>484048I don't think this game has much of an overlap in players with TF2. The games are nothing alike.
>filipino agent >lightning basedoh god i swear to fucking god riot if you're adding another fucking duelist putangina mo riot dadami nanaman instalockers gago
>>482984i play both and i prefer Valorantit's more balanced and the powers are nice
>>484802i feel like the options are limited anywayslike, phoenix is such a boring character, yoru is unplayable, all you have is raze, jett and reyna
>>482984val has more viable weapons, fuck csfags with their "m4 ak awp only, nothing else should be viable" horseshit
>>484135I think you are missing his point, mmorpgs, tf2 and mobas have created and perpetuated the stereotype that support = healer and healer = squishy healslut that can't kill shit and should just avoid combat. Some games, even overwatch, tried to insert the concept of supports that aren't healers, but in the end they failed, because they also pandered to the healslut mindset and the non healers simply performed worse and got shit on.This stereotype is going on for so long that the new generations may not be able to grasp the meaning of the word support in the context of a multiplayer game, mistaken it by a synonym of healslut.Support is also not always the easiest role to play but gives that sensation to people who don't play support, or play it because they are insecure and scared of being in the frontline, or going solo. In many games, where the healer mindset rules, its also the role that often can, when making a mistake, run to cover and heal himself easily. This probably resumes why many Sage players pick Sage and do what they do.
remember, there are more planes in the ocean than there are ships in the sky.
>>487141>forgot to attach my webm of shooting down a flying ulting razenever mind the joke's not funny now.
>>487141>>487142And I forgot twice wtf
>>487151shut up, i didn't attach it.
oh shit I forgot again, what are the odds?
>>436006at what rank do people start taking the game seriously?i'm diamond and people still don't understand is that all you need to win is an astra, a killjoy and a sageyou have to be retarded to lose with this comp, you can't enter site at allyet every match boom jett, reyna, raze, chamber
>>487325Maybe you are the problem
>>487325viper is fucking overpowered and makes entering sites freer than the free samples at a grocery storewall up"push in you animals" they plantset up orb on spikeget to a close lineup (long range lineups are inconsistent and don't allow you to support your team if needed)then on defense just completely close up mid and the site of your choice
Downloaded the game yesterday. I had a lot of fun. Any advice?
>>487325>all you need to win is an astra, a killjoy and a sagewhich one do you play?
>>487699don't waste the two free unlocks like I did
>>482974waiting for the quake reboot that will bring arena fps back to its former glory wishful thinkinhg
>>486330theres more gun viability in csgo.>tec9, 5-7, p250, deagle all viable>sawed off, mag 7 , auto shotty>ump, mp7, mp9, bizon>ak,m4 the autisitic aug/sg spamvalorant literally has me buying spectre after pistol win, vandal only, autoshotty if I'm holding hooker or some shit, and the odin if I'm playing sova on ascent. of course i can pick guardian and bulldog when I don't have the money but that's the equivalent of a galil/famas
>>487699read on if u want to play ranked and climbi personally believe you should learn how to play the game and develop your gamesense asap, this means optimal plays and reading your opponent. I suggest this over aim as aim can always be improved upon but "playing the game" is something a lot of people just don't get, even in high immortalalso just dump ur utility, too many people hold itt. hardstuck immortal player who will never hit radiant>>487325go join a team if you want to play the game seriously

NEW AGENThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtx8CgjRmqENEW AGENT
Bumping with drawfaggotry
>>494523TOPKEKImagine unironically playing vaLULrant after thisZoomers are mentally ill You Will Never Be The Protagonist Weeb
>>494539>>494541funny but kinda sad no one in the valorant community would apperiate it since riot and it's fanbase is always lgbtqxyz+ all the time
>>494523I understand why they might think the game needs runandgunning but why give such an advantage to only one agent? Jett at least has it as her ult, while this bitch can do it every single round? Just why.
>>494545Just tell your team to aim for anyone with fag flags then type "love wins" when you beat them
>>494523>we want the apex and cod audience
>>494550???Jett's Dash is a free ability and she can get another charge after two kills.Jett has knives as an ult.
>>494599Do you know what run&gun is?What the fuck does dash have anything to do with it?Her ult has no movement recoilThis pinoy zoomer whore can do it every round
will she be good thoughpeople called yoru OP when his trailer dropped and he turned out dogshit
>>494523Looks cool and all but is gonna be absolute trash on defence
is this game new player friendly? i'm not too much into FPS but it looks kinda fun, would this be a good game to learn shooting or should I practice on another game?
>>494539Brimstone had a black best friend. Should've been Chamber or Breach.
>>494706just look a few videos on the shooting mechanics and play. you're gonna suck at the beginning but thats every competitive game.
>>494706It's the best baby's first shooter on the market. Not necessarily the most accessible, but the skill floor is really low to start playing and there's a lot of space to improve compared to the even easier games. I basically started on Valorant after spending two decades not playing the genre.
>>494550It's a huge advantage but she needs it and I doubt it'll break her. Phoenix and Yoru are in the shitter unless the rework saves the latter but compared to the other female duelists she's got some pretty clear weaknesses. None of her tools let her lurk and she's not going to be able to play operator. It doesn't look like her peeks are good either.She'll still be solid because her run and gun is so powerful but I wouldn't worry much. Pushing new characters is basically necessary with the growing character pool.
>>494727Yeah but Brimstone is American
>>494488this was during the life of csgo t. global. faceit 10, 15rws
>>494860postfaceitaccount. Sawed off was pretty a pretty good CT gun if some guy drops it though, way better than the mag7
>>482665It's so fucking laughable how many cheaters there are in Valorant. It's almost always a reyna, like you said. People swear the anti-cheat works when in reality it only prevents obvious stuff like spinbotting. Walls/aimbots are still prevalent as fuck and Riot has yet to implement a replay system because they know then there will be tons of clips floating around showing these blatant cheaters, which will make all of the gullible retards lose faith in their "perfect anti-cheat".Fuck this shitty game, I quit until there are replays. And fuck anyone who continues to buy skins and support this mess until this issue is fixed.t. imm3 ranter
>>495299why is nobody making a fuss about it then
>>495410I am, fuckwaffle.There are no replays, you can't post videos of these cheaters, so the retards who play this shit game actually believe the anti-cheat is flawless.
>shock dart but shit>phoenix wall but better>a sprint button>jett ult but shit
Does this new chink have the same voice actor as Jett? They sound exactly the same and even have the same cocky cunt voice lines
>>496137I don't find their voices similar. Jett's a fair bit girlier.
Which agent is best for SoloQ? Ideally not Jett as that shit is insta-locked by weeb lovers.
>>496649sova or skye.
>>494545>>494554definitely not the case in europe, I always play with turks. they're absolutely faggots, too, but not the political type>>496137Jett's voice lines are pretty cute
>>496649most of the high elo leaderboard is filled with jett instalocks so statistically, jetti usually play skye or killjoy in solo queue, but still play smokes if the role needs to be filledjust learn how to play everyone bro
>new heros ulti looks dogshitunfortunate really
>rito trying to combat instalockingis this even going to work? i don't want this to turn role queueing cancer
>>498971nothing wrong with instalockingif my jett picked first that means they have an ssd which means they have a better pc, maybe a 144hz monitor, then i'm more likely to win by having a good duelisti usually am the one instalocking though
>>498971Nah.If some raging fetus boy won't get his agent, they'll just quit round 1 and you'll be stuck paying the full elo price.
>>498867u wot? are you just some zoomerbab who can't tracc? It looks amazing.
>>498971>i don't want this to turn role queueing canceridk it'd be nice to play a pub without a reyna once in a while, fuck that trashcan agent and fuck every moronic youtuber, twitter user, redditor and twitch streamer who convinced every moron on the planet to play her desuThe game's fun when it has variety, when it's not fun is when you have the same 2 agents in every lobby and every 2nd lobby.It's like the one thing they could have learned from OW's oppressive metas. She isn't even oppressive, just a pubstomper. It reminds me of the days when OW had Orisa at an 85% pickrate in GM for nearly 3 months then RQ hit and every single game was double barrier.
>placements>4 wins 1 loss>top score by a mile on the loss>went from gold 2 to silver 1REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>499942seems like everyone got hard resetted, oh well
>>496137>jett's and neon's cuntwoah yummy
Would Sova make a good femboy?
how y'all enjoying the ares meta
Anyone else noticed the changes in Brim's office in The Range? New voice recordings, new e-mail.Something about opening a portal, and Yoru is off in another dimension investigating a ship. What does it mean?
>>500249>Yoru is off in another dimension investigating a ship.Riot are trying to write the upcoming Yoru rework into the lore. He'll probably find some other ancient piece of gear or have a vision quest with his ancestors or some bullshit so that they can explain his new abilities.
>>500153It's pretty obnoxious when I play but whenever I watch high level players it doesn't look to be a real problem at all. Weapon balance looks very good in their games compared to mine, so I assume I must just be a shitter relying on wallbang.
what the fuck happened to the game
What did everyone place? Gold 2 to bronze 2.
>>501463bronze 2was silver 2
>place 2 smokes in completely off spots in both sites>teleport ult somewhere completely different>get 2 kills from this
>ares overbuffedthis is negev all over again but miles worse, what the fuck riot
>>501598I get removing spin up just because with it, it's just a shitty option compared to either saving for an Odin or getting another cheap gun but the increased firing rate I think pushes it into overkill
>>501841Yeah I hated it with the spin up.But maybe a small firerate nerf or some more recoil for balance?
>>436006fuck off retard that fucking game is gay
>>501871your mom gay
>>501463>>501530Same, bronze 2 from silver 2 and I'm getting owned by bronze 1s.Is this standard for an episode reset? What's even the point of this reset shit?
>>502282To make sure you can earn your rank again (new meta, agent, other changes, etc). I find this helps with flushing out boosted accounts.It's not as bad as last time where the highest you can place was plat.Holyshit diamond+ players were malding
>>502301>Holyshit diamond+ players were maldingnot as hard as the plat- players getting dicked on by literal pros.
>>502311It wasn't a good situation for plat players nor pros, I'll agree with that.At least you can place in diamond now (which is really full of pro/streamer alt accounts)I think I'll wait a while to start climbing again.Bronze is a god awful rank, I don't feel like dealing with ares/odin bullshit
>>502327What's the problem with Ares and Odin?
>>502337ares is now literally better than the phantomodin is still the same
>>502529If you're bronze maybe lol
>>5025385 bodyshots has a faster ttk than the phantomwith an easier spray with more ammoif you're a 1 tap demon go use the vandal
>>502337Ares has become a bit of a crutch for casuals due to overbuffing. Spin-Up has been removed and they upped the firing rate from 10 to 13. I think it'd be alright if they rolled the firing rate back for what they claimed the buffs were for (Making the Ares a viable early game/save round option instead of just a shittier Odin) because right now it's too powerful for what it is and what it costs.
I play down in Iron/bronze because I got a cognitive issue that fuck me over with a physical disability.I can still aim kinda okay and understand what's going on in the game but not necessarily in a way I can put into practice.I still see players trying to abuse ares etc who just cannot fucking aim, not shit like being able to keep a crosshair at head height or aiming to close to a corner/angle/wall but straight up bot tier players.It's funny, I can go negative some games getting caught out because I often don't fall back fast enough but I'll see these meta weapon abusers go positive.Pretty funny tbhwysenpai
>went from silver 1 to silver 3 in 1 game?????????????????what was the point of resetting me back from gold 2 to silver 1 then?
>japanese friend is obsessed with this game>can't play with her because this game is fucking region locked in [current year]Every other other shooter lets you pick your region but Valorant is just sooooo special! Fuck you Valorant!
>initially thought neon can only slide forwards>players discovered she can actually slide in any directionnice
>be lvl 4 new player >having a bad game against clearly experienced players>lvl 80 guy on my team wont stop trashtalking me in chat the whole time saying that im worse than unranked etc etc slightly annoying bros
how viable is rushing with brimstone, by using judge and filling site with smokes?I've been testing it for a while and the first few times you try it you easily get one to three kills, but guaranteed death
>>504669playing with friends

>>503696tell her to make an account for you and then log into it on your pc
>>505049Yeah, it's pretty fun. I like hitscan energy weapons like that (Zarya & Sym in OW). Good times. I guess if people complain about it you could also complain about Jett's ult but that's projectile.The way I see it: They've nerfed weapons so far since launch that trackstyle players who could control spread really don't have guns like the stinger or more run'n'gun style aiming styles so it's interesting to have a little variety.Also RIP the bucky, I liked that gun a lot, ez gun to farm kills on as an off tank in OW who plays RH but they nerfed it so far into the ground you get reported for even buying it outside of eco 'cause CSbabs couldn't handle it.
>>505398>tell her to make an account for you and then log into it on your pcDon't even need to do that, you can make the accounts with a free VPN. It's what I did in beta to play with my NAfriends and my main account is NA.
>>505613>>503696but I also realise that the region locking has one other negative effect. On my EU accounts I can select Tokyo IIRC and Asian accounts can select KR etc etc so essentially both of you have to play on the best region (which may be NA for you) which means no progression while playing with each other.In a game focused around a battlepass grind and shit that's kind of a downer. I can see your complaint now.
