wow. so valorant has died completely on this site. first the general, now all threads in vm are gone. this is all that remains.

What the fuck is wrong with the japanese playerbase in this gamethey play so fucking slowly and always fucking default with coordinated site executesit's fucking annoying since I don't speak japanese what kind of weird plan they havemeanwhile in my home region of SEA people just rush sites and don't play like it's a fucking tournament
>>1003274JP and EU are very defaulty. I had much more "fun" in APAC/NA servers But I play on EU when I want to chill with lofi music
>>1003274do you look like Tala?
Why does everyone who plays Valorant talk like they're from the ghetto? "Yoooo duuuude that's so crack, bet senpai fr fr" I'm going back to Counter Strike

>only ever report people on my team if they play like absolute shit>report for team sabotage/disrespectul behavior>not a single report of mine is legitimate>keep getting the "due to your feedback blahblahblah team sabotage" almost every dayI can't tell if the message is just bullshit, or if they somehow accidentally flagged me as a super trustworthy reporter and now just comp ban anyone I report.
>>1007458I only report hard cheaters or people who troll, like vipers who molly my phoenix E when im trying to self healI have maybe reported a total of 10 times in 1962 matches, and i have gotten feedback on all of them i thinkmost people in valorant (zoomers probably and i can relate) spam all chat to report x for doing y, even though y is as far from being bannable as possible, but i did the same in csgo as a kid, i probably had like 3 reports on average per game
>>1007626Look all I'm saying is if you're the last alive and you don't even know how to fake a defuse I'm reporting you for sabotaging.

>>1007783i always get half on the first tap
how am i so much better at cs which is way more mechanically heavy game ie aim movement whatever than this, im dying like a literal trash its fucking embarrassing
>>1008740people (cs frogs) generally cope by saying its random but at the end of the day, valorant takes more gamesense than csgo. even the angles/fights you choose to play completely unravels a whole round since util/ults come into play. The first year ex CS players came into valorant & did well but after the 1st year when every region caught up with the game. The game evolved further than csgo and these CS players are washed now. Some players like stewie/hiko etc have gotten destroyed by chess/fortnite zoomer pros who understand the macro well. They also aim better. Stewie's streams and his failure in Tier 2 valo is a good reminder of how bitter players can get when they realize valorant is on the same level as CSGO. Its not an easy transition at the moment. You will get rolled if you cant macro/aim well.
>>1008740>>1008808to elaborate, utility is generally stronger (being able to gather info is massive) and a lot easier to use in low level games. In CS you have to get pretty high into ranks before people know lineups and how to properly do pop flashes, in valorant that stuff starts way earlier
reject every agent and embrace viperor become a sova main n be loved
>>1003274I speak japanese and my last 80 comp games were on the JP server.Unless you're in immo3 or some tryhard rank, the most coordination that happens if no one is micro-managing is: "smoke site, you flash, then we go". Which should be normal.If someone is stepping up to IGL that's when you get baits and setups, but most of the time any coordinated plan has two people involved max. The rest just use their util without any deeper thought.I compensate with nerd shit and strats, so I'd notice if they were extraordinarily coordinated, but they're just not. They just use their util.

How come this game seems so popular but it can't maintain a general here? I know it's a zoomer game and they tend to stay in their discords, but you could say the same about Fortnite and and some others yet that has no problems maintaining it's general. I think that the twitch numbers with it (and League) are heavilly botted by the Chinese since it's a Riot game and the true player count is much lower than you'd think.
>>1024607Every time I try to get a general going, the horde of KJ simps just comes out of nowhere and ruins the fun for everybody
>>1024647Lol the neonfag is still here after driving everyone else out
>>1024647Surely that would help? OW general is surviving mainly on ritual posters and simps.
>>1024607I havent touched the game in months but still have this thread open to shitpost. The game is dead, everyone is waiting for CS2. Trannies can only get your game so far
>>1024607https://activeplayer.io/valorant/Valorant apparently has over 20M active monthly usersI think there just isn't a large demographic overlap with the people who use 4chan
>>1024889This is a lot smaller than I thought. That is not a lot of unique logins over a months time, counterstrike has over a million simultaneous players consistently every hour

>still no replay system
>>1028102Because a lot of this game is broken. Raze's rocket hitbox for example, replays would destroy any semblance of a competitive enviroment
>>1028136It would be amusing if the eventual replay system edited the game to make it look less jank. A replay system that shows what the server accepted and not what the client saw would be nice
https://tracker.gg/valorant/match/1b9f2ce2-b493-4579-8509-0fbc21e73dceGot aced TWICE (by Jett and Cypher) in the first half, and we still win it.Why? Because I was goofy. My team was smiling all throughout, even when we were getting our cheeks clapped.

>>1029692I had a game last night where all the last two (both full HP) had to do was double peek a Reyna out in the middle of B lobby, but they just wouldn't, and got 1v1'd instead.After that I got more active in calling for double-ups, or just started being second-man, so that at least one person on my team is always peeking with a buddy.Brutal first half but we won.>>1029800Tiny map, but that's a good thing.
just got to ascendant 2 again, ascendant 3 is the great filter
>>1028728The game just thinks you're farming bronze shitters so it gave you real enemies. When you get high ranked enemies it's an opportunity to get double/triple promoted in one go.Drop the tracker so I can see for sure, pussy.
>>1028728my guess is you played late at night or at a time with very few players>had this happen before at like 2-3 am>ranks ranged from bronze to gold
>let's all fucking rotate off our sites and go AYou don't just pull this on round 5.I even lurked up to B main and garage twice before this.
>>1031436Forgot the important pic.What's a man gotta do to earn some lurk pressure around here?
>>1031438which elo are you?Keep at it, that's the only solution. you can only know the timings when you keep trying to lurk. Im a cypher ratty lurk in diamond and you need to realize lurking only works once your team takes contact, be it attack or defense. I always lurk just to see where the traps are in the first couple of rounds, based on that, you can move around later in rounds. You dont always have to lurk behind them, you can cage them in and tell your team to hold site if you're CT, if you're T take space, put up trips AND THEN ask your team to rotate.All the above might look basic but it basically comes down to, your timings are off and its because you're going either too early or too fast. keep trying, fren
>>1031710Thanks bwo. I got similar advice from another cypher main so that seems to be the mindset. Despite my 150hrs on him, I don't have the mindset drilled in yet. I do notice that I tend to look for a pick when lurking, instead of boxing them in and supporting the post plant.Same game, there was one time where my team got a pick A and all four sent it immediately. My ass decided to push garage at that exact moment and got timing'd by a KJ in window. I realize that even if I killed her, I'd be too far away if my team got massacred.Next time I recognize that situation I'll just tuck left side of B entrance and watch B to A link. Idc if she can creep out of garage and find me if she does then c'est la vie you know.>which eloGold 3 rn. Finished plat 1 last season and plateau'd (heh) there for 10+ matches so I guess that's my real rank for now.
>>1031713all the best, lurking is not always going behind them. Take your time and destroy her util, keep taking jiggle peeks. Your team can be focused on attack but your job is breaking all the senti shit. if sage has her wall, break one part of it and run back to your team, if her setup is on one side, break it and go back. The amount of pressure it creates is very high. it will keep 1-2 players there and you can hit a site 5v3, take trades. ez.
you guys always talk boring stuff

>>1032424comp doesn't matter just instalockNo one in your elo or my elo knows how to use their util enough that their specific role is indispensable.In fact, the few games where we just gave no fucks and went 5 duelists no smokes were one of the easiest games I've ever had because everyone felt like they were hot shit.You just need 5 guns pointing at the right places at the right time, with aim that is average for your rank.>5 sentinel game on a 3-site mapWhat timing.I'm sorry yours went poorly.Ours went well :)
Not sure if the comms in my rank+server are good or I just talk a lot and not realize that I'm the comms for my entire team.>>1032147You're basically entrying solo on a lurk, clearing every angle, looking for the guy that's watching for the lurk. If they don't have that guy then you're fighting shitters and anything goes.>you have to entry frag every timeIf you're saying that eventually I have to raw dog into an angle with no util, and that I should be good at that, then we're in agreement. But if you're saying that I should be entrying exclusively to climb that's retarded. I'm more useful as the 2nd or 3rd guy watching the peek out on Ascent heaven or sticking to the entry's back like glue ready to trade in half a second.If I die, my wires go down, I lose the post plant cam, they lose one of the best fraggers to ever grace the game, etc.
>>1032474>>1032479>>Was this bind or split?BreezeHow do I post my tracker?>>1032479Yeah but idk if the Raze was a heavy smurf or something it was a really difficult matchToday I have to play a Premier with some frens but the ping distance is gonna fuck me up really hard
>>1033178I definitely started winning more when I started comming more. Keeps the whole team on the same side. Most are shy so if you tell them what they can do, it works out. Sometimes, reyna fags & duelists get angry when you comm too much but you can let them be and comm other shit.
I love shield on pistol rounds, this will never not be funny, I know it is dumb, inefficient AND wrong but I keep doing it because even in plat I rarely get one tapped by a Sheriff in pistol rounds Something even funnier is when I manage to kill a sheriff player who hits 2 bodyshots on me for 110 damage thinking I was going to die with a second shot>>1031754>>1031932I am a shitter and I don't have anything useful to say but I could shitpost more often, I mean, why the fuck no? this entire board is really fucking slow anyways, even "fast" threads last like a month.>>1030754Think about it this way, if you would have been Immortal if you started to play before Ascendant was introduced.I honestly don't see myself going beyond diamond anytime soon because I mostly play on weekends, currently hitting 300 hours on comp, I could improve faster if I played more often but I'm not sure how much time I want to give to this game, it is something I don't want to regret in the future, I am getting old.

>>1034199wdym neofrontier and the chinese fan were bangers. They have been disappointing around the chamber era for some reason but since then, its been prelude to chaos, chronovoid, araxys which have all been bangers personally. The recent one is awful tho, looks like plastic gold and not actual prime gold. I also think the champions knife could've been better, slightly thinner and it would've been sleek.
>>1034304Maybe I'm just burnt out on Valorant idk
>>1034307take a break and come back, I took a mini break during chamber meta but came back after cypher buff & have been enjoying the game. lot more variety to agents now, even in the pro scene. There is still some chamber now so you dont miss it as much if you like him. I think the meta is at a healthy state right now.
>>1034311I'm waiting for the new agent desu, the agent pool is hella stale rn
>picked up the game early this year>friends and community complain about the game and don't want to play itI'm having fun still
>>1034565ive noticed some of my frens stopped playing after they hit the plateu. Now they just smurf even though they're plat/diamond thinking they're hot shit and the ego got bruised after realizing, aim will only take you so far. so they instalock reyna and have fun smashing bronze lobbies. Im still grinding ascendant and having fun, get involved in scrims from gankster, all that shit. I just think they dont want to improve, its better to soloQ than duo'ing with them, they'll be miserable to play with too in my experience.
Idk what kind of teammates you guys are getting that warrants the endless complaining, but the randoms I draw are pretty good.
>>1035125Smurfing is subhuman behavior, unfortunately Riot doesn't care either
outsider here, just wanna know why this game and apex are treated like e-dating sims with a game on the side in asia
>>1035359>apexThe game just has a lot of idle time which makes it perfect for wanting to talk to someone. You could actively look for a fight and not find it until the end.>valoAnyone e-dating here is gonna have a bad relationship. It's a crutch for not being able to just sit in a call with your partner.Btw this isn't just an asia thing, at least for valo.
I'm not sure if I'm only playing valo because of the void CS left in my heart.I have so much fun playing CS with friends, but they don't wanna play lately.Which means I have to play solo. I'd rather stick my dick in a grinder rather than play CS solo, but solo valo is actually fun.Why is solo comp fun? It doesn't make sense.
>>1036290I find solo CSGO infinitely better, not sure how you could come to this conclusion. CSGO usually has adult men, while Valorant is mainly younger, more attention seeking, and annoying. Or at least solo valorant feels completely random, you never know what you're gonna get
>>1035375Anyone who Edates at all is in a bad "relationship" and a pathetic low functioning fag
>>1036450skill issue I found my gf of 4 years first through edating

Should I just give up on playing this game if my reaction time isn't god-tier?I seriously don't understand how I can have 2000+ hours in siege and have hit diamond multiple times, yet can't even maintain a positive k/d in a single deathmatch game.I'm repeatedly getting domed the milisecond someone comes around the corner, far faster than I can even react to.
>>1036742>reaction time300ms or below is serviceable.Tac shooter boomer like you should know that crosshair placement is like 90% of how fast you kill someone. Even something seemingly insignificant like holding wide or tight from a corner makes a huge difference, and most of the time, one of those is objectively correct.You also shouldn't be fast. You need to be accurate, even if it costs you time. You cannot be telling me that these kids are dunking on you before you can even react. Post a fucking deathmatch VOD if you wanna prove me wrong. But you don't have to, because you know that most of the time you just aim too fast, miss, and die.>2000 hrs of siegeAll you guys know is pick Zofia, hold left-click, and aim as an afterthought. Obviously you're gonna suck if that's what's ingrained into your brain.t. 700 hours siege Iana main

i hate being in pisslow
Every fucking game I get stuck with at least 3 Russians or French or Spanish who don't speak English at all in EU servers, why is it like this
Is Harbor good? I need another controller that's not Brimstone.
>>1040047he's good as a viper alternative and very good on offense while a bit lacking on defense

WTF BROSWHY AM I GETTING QUEUE AGAINST A SMURF AND BASICALLY DIAMOND PLAYERS
So close, I will totally not go into a losing streak after this, right guys?>>1042345Welcome to the ranked experience of every single multiplayer game these days, players who never get pass Diamond and can only have fun smurfing.
>>1041125funnily enough im getting a lot more aftershock kills and impact than ever before. earlier players used to tank it for the first 2 pulses but now it flushes them out faster or they die because they dont realize its just 2 pulses now with greater damage.
>>1042345>>1042777nah fuck this gay shitI'm silver 1 and I already have g2~p1 shit eloBut I mean, this is better4 since in silver-bronze lobbies I SOMETIMES top frag while our duelist is bottom fragging

>>1042777It just keeps tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down...I will be fine, I got trips in that post
>>1044062its somewhat normal for players having loss streaks after an episode reset but ive noticed the latest episode reset filtered the most since the game started. its been brutal for everyone. should get better by the next act imo

Add me for Valo desu (G3)natenya#8265
>>1051332Oh and I'm eu
>>1050807Happens to me from time to time, I'm thinking it has something to do with Windows 11's shutdown where some of the system is saved to the disk for an allegedly faster boot.
I love soloq because it is my favorite feature from CSGO: gamblingUnlike anon here >>1044735 I didn't improve at all after the last losing streak, I just went into a wining streak, I just can't stop winning even when I play like shit, my team would still win even if I went afk.Now I am getting one tapped everywhere but I keep wining, if we get the plant there is a 90% chance of us wining the round, for some reason they keep falling for my basic ass lineups, even as Astra, I just place a star or two on the spike and, I SUCC or stun when they tap it, then spam, free round, how can't Ascendant retards counter such basic shit?.>>1050807It happened to me at the beginning of the month, I reinstalled the game, reinstalled the riot client and reinstalled the Vanguard anticheat, nothing worked, I starter to consider getting a GPU to play CS2 instead, then two days later I tried to launch the game and it worked just fine, weird shit.
>>997377Play Calabiyau instead. Better characters, no niggers, better gameplay, and JP voices is just a simple toggle.
>>1051832I saw the kino thread on /v/ where this was getting shilled.It's chinkshit but if there weren't any hoops to jump through I would've tried.
Tried CS2 brosIt's just more CSGO but with worse audio, I just can't play it over Valorant any more, it's too rough as a game. Hate the new inventory stuff too.Wingman is fun though, having a 2v2 mode in Valorant too would be welcome, especially since I've got a group of friends and we can just play against each other
>>1052844the movement kills Valorant
>>1052858Going back to CS feels like everything's on iceCounterstrafing is a cool idea for a mechanic but in practice it's not like ever want to not do it so the game just feels bad as a result
>>1052844I've occasionally been seeing people say the audio is worse but I've never played the game. When my friend streamed it after streaming CSGO the audio is the same for me, what's different about it?
>>1053358It's generally more muffled and harder to tell where things are.They also fucked up the AWP sound, it sounds like the scout used to, especially when you're being shot.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jPeS9Dr11A&t=3298s (first video I found with an easy example, happens twice within like ten seconds)
>>1052892You're just a complete retard. You can stop instantly in counter strike and it feels amazing, you're always in control, in Valorant you have to wait for the game to tell you when its ok to shoot, you have less control over your movement, less player expression, less skill
>>1053421I don't really mean the stopping so much as the way it feels when you're just moving around.And swinging/holding corners becomes way more tactical with the heavier spread and inability to just stop on a time. If I wanted to play a shooter with interesting movement it certainly wouldn't be CS, it'd be something that actually has bunny hopping or stuff with wall jumping instead of "wow you can stop real fast if you're good"
>>1053464you dont have to be "good" to stop in counter strike, it just feels so much better than valorant because of it. Having control of your own movement. Both Valorant and counter strike have shit gunplay and shit movement but counter strike is marginally better in both regards. I dont really see what you mean by saying valorant is more tactical
>>1053490You think it feels better because you're used to it, you have the same amount of control. The only difference is that it'll actually decelerate you to a stop at the same speed as if you're changing directions
>>1053421>in Valorant you have to wait for the game to tell you when its ok to shootYou just let go of the movement key and you're instantly accurate.>>1053490In CS the fact that you can crouch peek, spray, whiff 20 bullets, and still remain lethal and accurate for the last 10, makes it less accuracy focused than Valorant.It's really "less tactical" than Valorant because the movement can easily disarm someone holding an angle. Dry peeks are so much worse in Valo, because everyone is slow as molasses, their heads can't move diagonally across your screen, and they can't start to shoot unless they've totally stopped or else they'd use their precious 10 bullets of non-random spray.
>>1055941Not at all. I played valorant first, and for a few years before ever touching counter strike. When I learned that you could easily stop with counterstrafing it blew my mind and made this kind of game 10x better... along with kovaaks of course...>>1057562>instantly accurate.not even close to true, only possible in CS. >second quotein real life guns are more accurate and more deadly than anything in CS or valorant
The R8 sucks but the mechanic is fun. Cowboy agent when?
>>1057588It's not about realism, it's about coupling movement more heavily to aim and not just being able to swing and outshoot someone. Holding angles is just stronger in valorant which means you need to approach things more tactically. The heavy tagging also makes trades more guaranteed, which also means you need to approach things with more of a plan.The varied utility also makes for more district tactical situations you need to solve.You could make a valorant spinoff of frozen synapse pretty easily but a CS version would be pretty boring.
>>1058658I kind of see what you mean but I'm not convinced its more tactical. Simply, Valorant disempowers the individual, you say this enhances team tactical gameplay but in practice it feels worse to actually play. A Sage cant do shit alone, while in CS every player has all utility. Valorant you have to rely on cheap tricks that your abilities give you, CS feels more honest
When is Vanguard meme gonna run on GNU+Linux? Would play this game otherwise.
>>1058788Until someone like the bottles dev finds a way to trick the anticheat into thinking it's not sandboxed and is running at kernel level on boot, never
>>1058791Is Vanguard good at doing its job at least?
>>1058795In the ~600 hours I've played I've never seen a cheater and the videos I've watched of people cheating had them quickly banned. So I'd say it's a good anti-cheat at least
>>1058811Good, might dual-boot to play this game when I'll buy another SSD.>>1058791Kind of want to switch to Windows full-time maybe but I feel like I would really miss Flatpak's sandbox, Btrfs snapshots, reflinks and especially compression, wtf am I supposed to do
>>1058673CS should just limit what you can buy to deagles.No cheap tricks like flashbangs and automatic weapons, just honest to goodness precision and movement.>Simply, Valorant disempowers the individual, you say this enhances team tactical gameplay but in practice it feels worse to actually play>A Sage cant do shit aloneThe agent who can basically stop an entire execute solo by chucking one ice ball on the floor. Slow a choke after their entry goes in, and you guarantee a 2v1 while the rest of his team crawls out, unable to trade.The agent that can keep map control solo for at least 40s. See Bind showers for the best example.Even the healslut has lots of individual impact when you actually know her. CS agents and Valo agents just do different things. Yeah you don't have both util to entry and stall, but you are not helpless without your team any more than a CS agent is.A T-side player wishes he could lurk up A site while at the same time covering fast mid pushes, so his team can just focus on a late 4-man B take, or have the option to go back mid without having to reclear mid. Cypher can do all that, and he has TWO smokes. He doesn't have a flash or a molly I guess.
>>1057588>not even close to true, only possible in CSIdk what to tell you other than to boot up practice range, display shot accuracy graph in your settings, and click immediately as you let go of your strafe key. It'll be orange across the board.You come to a dead stop when you let go of one key. Ergonomically you stop faster than in CS, because a counterstrafe is two inputs, not one.
>>1059029flashbangs arent cheap tricks like wall hacks, teleports, and flashing through walls. Stop being a disingenuous faggot. A sage cant do shit alone even in your unlikely scenario, it is just sage waiting for her team. Good luck clutching when playing an agent invented for simpleminded females to queue in as they garner desperate simps. At simplified version of your argument is that it is better game design to disempower the individual and leads to better team gameplay, but I think it just objectively feels like shit to play compared to games like CS that let you control your movement, the tradeoff isnt worth it
>>1059033This is verfiably false. Not a single thing you said is true, you cannot shoot after immediately letting go of your strafe key. You have to wait a split second, while in CS you don't wait at all and control everything by counterstrafing. You objectively have more control over your movement in CS than valorant wtf are you trying to say here?
>>1059035based bronze bro
>>1059035>flashbangs arent cheap tricks like wall hacks, teleports, and flashing through walls.Why not?>A sage cant do shit alone even in your unlikely scenarioBut I just described you a Sage preserving map control solo and stalling a push. If you don't recognize the value this gives, you don't understand map control and util economy.>it is just sage waiting for her teamBuying time for rotates is an e-girl thing now? Don't use smokes and mollys then if you don't wanna be a faggot.>unlikely scenarioThis is literally what happens every round for a Sage player. You wait for site entry util, you throw a slow. Their entry is solo now so you play crossfire with your site buddy. You do this comfortably because you walled off another entry path they could've used. It's so high conversion that good teams really have to work the map elsewhere to break up their setup before hitting a site.1 slow orb = 1 dash, 1 smoke, 1 recon dart, 1 dog, whatever util they used to entryIt's such a broken ability if you know the game.>Good luck clutchingShe has a resurrect. Statistically one of the better clutch operators. Having one other guy to trade is better than having a smoke in the pocket.Honestly it's as the tripfag says I think you just don't understand both games on a deep enough level.
>>1059316You are still being a disingenuous faggot, Im talking about her being alone 1vX scenario, she is useless. Its laughable you bring up her ult, something she won't have the vast majority of rounds. Flashbangs and smoke grenades arent wallhacks retard what are you even trying to say?
>>1058673Sage is plenty strong alone, even with the self heal nerf. Cypher having to retake the other site after you've set everything up, now that's suffering.But the unfairness is good, if I wanted to play a fair game I wouldn't be playing one with an economy. Players not all having access to the same utility means that each pick changes the tactical situation in a different way. Also means that every 1v1 is a bit different.As for honesty, I don't take think there's anything particularly dishonest about utility that gives you info instead of just stuff that denies it, it's just a question of what you're used to. If CS was made during a time when drones existed we'd probably have something like it on CT side. Raven Shield had heartbeat sensors, SWAT had the door camera.
>>1059339>game about holding angles and clicking heads>get punished for holding an angleFlashbangs are a bullshit mechanic on par with sova dart. Go ahead and prove me wrong.
>Play valorant>100% KASTNice game valobabs
Sagemommy69 is so cute
Just started playing this.I'm playing deathmatch until I can get consistently in like top 5 of the match before I start playing swift play. Is that a good plan?
>>1063356No, death match matchmaking is based on how you perform it isn't like randomKovaaks would help you improve quicker than anything
>>1063356not really. it's mainly a game about visualizing where your enemies are then killing them. rather then reacting after you've seen them and flicking and killing them. You'd be better off just playing normal games
how are the executes in this game now? I always thought once people got good it would be a fucking nightmare trying to hold a site. At least they nerfed those fuck off huge ultimates like killjoy
I demoted back to Silver 2 after the game forcefully matchmaked me against plats who literally don't have mics vs smurfs then this game. Can I even reach gold bros?
>>1063453I believe in you anon>>1063402The last big patch tuned down the frequency of overwatch rounds but there's still strong executes. Depends on the map of course, and you probably shouldn't just be letting the enemy team just walk up to the site and get set up. Being more aggressive and holding ground will make them expend utility getting to the site and any pick you get hurts the ability to do a big execute a lot
>>1063396>>1063399I see. Thanks bros.

Just got my first free agent token.Who should I get? Reyna looks good.
>>1069570>29 years old boomerThis game is more about crosshair placement, aim technique, and decisions rather than how fast you can react (unless you're an AWPer). People as old as 40 can get diamond.
>>1070432You can recon the sentinel/Viper on site, gulag them, and have your team flood into site.Your team just walks into site 4v2 at most, with no stall util to slow them down or split them up.As a bonus, you have a 55/45 gunfight. If you lose it, your team is already in position to smoke the guy you just gulag'd.
>>1072451If you're asking this then just get duelists like Reyna.
>>1072451>ReynaHow about choosing an agent who is fun and contributes to your team
>>1072481Ok.>>1073231>How about choosing an agent who is fun and contributes to your teamLike who? I already picked reyna but I will get another one on lv10.I chose her because she has a self heal and flash. She looks easy was recommended in a lot of youtube guides.For now I'm playing with her and phoenix.
>>1073677Any of the initiators or sentinels, they add value to your team by just using your utility and you'll actually figure out how to play the game. Duelists are just running at each other and shooting without knowing what's happening, positioning or understanding how to play with their teammates. Same with dps rolls in other games, lowest skill players who think they win the game because they think big numbers mean big contributions
>>1073692>Any of the initiators or sentinelsI heard that initiators are bad in lower ranks because you need team coordination to do well with your habilities. Do you agree? Are sentinels better in this regard?What about controlers?
>>1073722Team coordination doesn't exist in low ranks, which is true. The real value to you as an initiator is the ability to get information and be self sufficient. Skye for example can scout ahead with her dog and flash for information or to blind. She can heal her teammates and her ult finds the opponents. She has enough to play well when it's 5v5 and when you're 1v3 at the end you can play off your abilities to win
>>1073722About controllers, i think they require too much gamesense to play as a starter character. You can do so much damage to your own team with bad smokes than any other role. It's doable, I just wouldn't recommend to a new player
>>1073769>>1073770I see. Thanks for the tips.
Low res anon here, pic related happened 3 days ago, you know well what happened next, it is always the same.>>1069570Good job anon, I am 34 years old and I got in diamond on my NA account 2 months ago, just focus on adapting and improving, your rank will go up or down but you can always improve as a player, you can watch Woohoojin review videos if you wanna take the game too seriously, you are doing good for now.
>>1073231>>1073677Raze then. She's hella fun and takes so much space. She also fills in for a few roles on some parts of the map, like Haven A short when you have no Skye dog / Sova recon. As a bonus, she's just the meta pick in a lot of the maps right now.You do need to learn a few lineups to play her to her true potential, though.

So now that ISO is confirmed S tier by the pros and the Radiants, what went wrong for VALORANT? Why make a character that sucks for low and mid elo but is absolutely fucking retarded in the highest peak of the game?
>>1083437because riot doesnt give a fuck about the regular players of the game. thats why they keep nerfing all the fun out of the game because the "pro players" aren't playing the way riot wants them to play. it actually gives me the shits because agents that I used to like playing have become pieces of shit (for breakfast)

Riot has marked my account for a perma loss streak. Out of the last 20 games, 17 have been 5-13 sweeps with my entire team having single digit kills while the enemies have over 2.0 kd. 2 of those games were overtime wins, 1 was an overtime draw. In short, I haven't won a single non-overtime game in 3 weeks. I play site anchors but nonetheless I'm team MVP about half of the time. This is Ascendant 1 and I'm at the point where I can no longer spectate my teammates without getting tilted in a major way. They're not humans anymore, as my dog plays better than them, or anyone with headphones and a mouse plugged in for that matter.Rewinding back 4 months, I've had a 53% winrate in immortal 2. People have got better since then, and factoring in me being rather rusty, I would say Ascendant 3 is a decent place for me. That said, next week I'm hitting Diamond 3, in which I'd need to switch from my typical anchor characters who are no longer suited for strategic gameplay to brainless pub stomping characters and try to have kda of 4 to carry out the lobbies.I just want to play the game that I like, that consists of both strategy and technical fights. Why am I being flagged to go down to the cavemen level where hitting shots is the only thing that matters? People there peek and don't kill with their first bullet, what's the point then? First bullet accuracy is a major gameplay mechanic, without which you lose to a free gun 100% of the time. Why do those players even exist? And why am I being forcefully queued into them now?Perhaps I should make a new account. This has got ridiculous at this point.
>>1086470This new act has been hell for matchmaking, their new algorithm is ass. Unrated is nigh unplayable too, always stomped or stomping. Always the level 2 Jett who aces for the fourth round in a row

I'm still quite new to the game and it's my first competitive fps so my aim and reaction time isn't the best. Other than improving aim, are there any agents that can let me get away with not being as good as people with years of aim training?
>>1090625Not playing a duelist means less relying on aim but honestly you're going to have to confidently shoot people no matter what you're playing.The only people who can get away with not being able to aim well are IGLs
>>1090625>are there any agents that can let me get away with not being as good as people with years of aim training?You don't need to. That's what skill based matchmaking is made for. You will face people on your level when you play ranked.
i wish theyd go apeshit with an agent design for oncelike shooting through walls or shrinking down to ant size or something dumb like thatmost of their new agent designs are super safe and esports certified
>>1090941Do you really want this to turn into overwatch?
>>1090941isn't summoning someone to a 1v1 arena kind of apeshit?
>>1090625>aim>reaction timeA fight is decided most of the time by who is more prepared.Keep your crosshair where the enemy's head might be.Hold it far or close to corners depending on how you think the enemy will peek you. HInt: if you're on an off-angle, hold uncomfortably wide.Take your time with the shot, even if it feels like forever.
Why 4chan HATES valorant
i dont have the best puter but it can run CS2 at high settings at 60FPS with not problem at all, why cant i run valorant? no offense but the game looks like trash and is supposed to run in a toaster yet it freezes every time after i select an agent and the game warns me for 'dodging' and when i finally get in a match it goes from 144FPS to 2FPS non-stop making it unplayable i dont get it
>>1093383shitters can't hit keep up with modern game so they stick with their dying game
>teleports, magic, satellite lasers, pokemon, and literally sending people to another dimension>strongest ability in the game is a short dash like 5 feet awayexplain
Please carry me out of Gold...
>>1093948Turn down all graphic settings.
>>1093948The exact opposite for me for some reason. CS2 runs like shit but does well with Valorant.
>>1093948Are you on an old spinning hard drive that's dying?>>1093962Lol they hate the old game too.
Post your skins, I don't have any yet and I want to know what you guys bought
>meet cool people in swift>they add you >sure maybe we can get some games sometime>never play with them againIs this common?

say something nice about gekko
>>1099678He, along with Phoenix, will probably be my favorite character(s) when the inevitable Valorant anime comes out.
Play duelist, they saidThat is how climb the elo ladder, they said
WHAT IN THE NIGGER FUCK IS THIS DOGSHIT MMR
Aimlet and reactionlet. Any point in getting into Valorant?
>>1102141I'm 27 and I'm having fun. Not only if this the first fps I've ever played, but I started in 2021 and I'm peak Gold while only playing casually.>>1100447It works for me.
>>1102358>Works for me>Peak goldI don't think its working for you, but its 100% true.I'm as old as you are and a tourist from cs so i only play like once a year for 30-50 games and have been immortal multiple times.
>>1102367>tourist from CSWell that explains why you're so good. Prior to Valorant my only video game experience are RPGs and MMOs type games. Sometimes it's my fault we lose, most of the time it's my teams fault. I had a rank up game last act that went south really fast. I dropped 41 kills into OT on Split and we still lost :(. It turns out there was a Diamond on the other team and I just couldn't compete.
>>1102141Do you wanna gitgud? Do you have fun with the game?I'm 35, 280ms reaction time in a good day (when I'm well rested plus high on caffeine), playing the game on a toaster (50FPS, 1024x576 res), I have peaked diamond and I'm having FUN™I like this game, it is full of gay normalfag zoomers and cringe memes but it still has a few things I found fun, these days most mainstream multiplayer games are the exact same but still have shit gunplay on top of being fucking battle royale/extraction shooters, I can't play CS2 on my toaster but valortant is cool enough.If you are worried about you performance, in lower elo you can just play a Sentinel or Initiator, you get to spot, blind, hurt and even kill enemies with utility before getting in contact with them.Wanna help with the execution/entry? play initiator, these have tools to clean corners so you don't have to get in.Wanna help holding an area? play sentinel, their utility can take control of the area, that way you get info of when you are getting attacked.>Aimlet and reactionletYou can get a lot of easy kills with just crosshair placement, basically preaiming the place where the enemy is going to be, even when I'm looking at the minimap I would click when my peripheral vision catches something moving in the screen, by the time I react I realize I got a kill. Getting kills with just muscle memory is a common thing in this gameThe game is not that much about reactions or aiming until way later. it is mostly about teamwork, watching angles positioning, "game sense" and adapting, if you are defending you can hide in a corner and get 2 free kills if no one cleans that corner, on attack you have to be sure to clean every single corner. You can also get into the lineup autism and get a huge advantage by autistically memorizing random pixels on the walls, it works wonders.Just try the game, you don't have to be an esports legend or a zoomer to have fun in this game.
>>1101617>that poor sageThe game fucked him over, the same thing happened to the enemy jett in this pic.Shit like that keeps happening this episode, the queue algorithm keeps fucking people over, pic related is from 2 months ago, our Omen and Chamber were queuing together, Chamber was a girl (female) an she just walked down middle with an OP killing everyone almost every single round, I guess I lost so many matches that month the game just moved me to the winners queue, after that one I won like 20 matches in a row.>GurafagOur ranks are pretty closeBro I keep thinking about adding you but I am dogshit at the game and pretty much a 4chan weirdo (basement dweller, nasal voice, literally autistic) I mostly play controller and sentinel, what do you think? maybe we could play a few matches.>>1096046Iktf, I'm too socially anxious to talk to people more than once.
>>1102522I'm in LAN tho
>>1102524ehm sure to I play scarcely because I am around playing Elsword
Idk how ranks before immortal even exist>goldIs where you have your monitor plugged in>diamondIs where you have your monitor and keyboard plugged in>ascendant 2Is where you have your monitor, mouse and keyboard plugged in>immortalIs where you have all the peripherals plugged in and you can process information further than the immediate information on your screen (i.e. think 10 seconds ahead, instead of not thinking at all)Spectating anyone below immortal is always like watching paralympics. Good thing it takes less than a week of casual play to climb out of that elo. Mind boggling how bad the average player is.
>>1104519If I call you daddy while you degrade me in VC, will you coach me out of gold?
>>1104524I can't fathom what "coaching out of gold" would entail. You literally need to pay attention to what's happening on your screen and just don't run while shooting.If that's too much, you can cheat your way into ~diamond3 by buying odin and spamming all angles while crouched.Players before ascendant can't kill with 1 bullet consistently when they peek, so you can punish them with odin that wins against any rifle that bodyshots 2 or more times instead of instantly killing you like it's supposed to.
>>1104869>while crouchedActually scratch that until you reach diamond. People before diamond mostly bodyshot, so crouching gives them easy headshots that they don't actually deserve due to their poor crosshair placement and lack of aim. Never crouch in <=plat
>You can tell a person's character by their-Color>first action.Always gets me. I'm not even racist.
this is the dumbest fucking ultimate in the game
>>1106239I like the mind games of the 1v1 arena, trying to catch the other player off-guard while also trying to figure out where they are at the same time
>>1106239It is, but not for the reason shown in your clip. This viper's pit is relatively easy to dismantle even as a team of 2, and you have all 5 alive + sova + skye.They should've cypher caged into B main to let viper ult there at the entrance, now that shit is not retakable even if you have all 5 agents capable of revealing and getting info.
Didn't know there was a thread around. Haven't seen one on vg for a while
>>1024607We had a nice recurring /vm/ thread, but then we got force migrated to /vg/ where everything went to shit due to absolute peanut brain spammers. Mostly Neonfag and a few KJ counterspammers, but even the few discussions in-between the flood of semi-erotic valorant fanart were brain dead. The thread never really recovered since most people didn't move or were turned away by the abysmal quality of the general (like yours truly). I don't think valorant threads ever truly recovered from that and now they spend their time in the shadows
>>1109624It was absolutely the KJ bots that ruined everything. They jumped into every discussion and spam revolting images of their boring waifu.
what's the best way to git gud at valo? I main Skye. I warm up on range and aim labs then play deathmatch/team deathmatch then I go into swift play and/or rank. lately ive been averaging an even k/d score or I end up going .5 (like 8-16 or something). This is my first mouse/key shooter
>>1111672K/D isn't really going to be much of a measure since there's matchmaking in every mode. You probably know this already but just getting good at crosshair placement is the biggest thing for new players.
>>1111672>This is my first mouse/key shooterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxP2y_q51IEThe most important part here is the final tip, which is to just take every 1v1 fight you can get in ranked.
how do i get more of these guys on my team and not on the enemy team
