VALORANT ranked mode launched on June 24th, 2020. Prior to its release, Riot Games revealed the changes made to the game’s competitive setting and rankings. This included renaming VALORANT’s highest rank from VALORANT, which was confusing, to Radiant. We got a couple of extraordinary achievements from Muhammed “mini” Salman and T1’s Victor “food” Wong for becoming the first Radiant players in Europe and North America respectively. However, players have been complaining about the lack of differentiation in the rank and motivation to continuously improve after gaining it.
G2 Esports’ Oscar “Mixwell” Cañellas Coloch suggested a few changes he would like to see to VALORANT’s Radiant rank, specifically adding a way to differentiate players within it. In addition, he suggested other quality of life improvements, including the ability to go into the practice range while being in a queue and a sixth spot for the coach to be able to join during custom games.
VALORANT Game Director Joe “Ziggs” Ziegler responded and confirmed that the development team is already working on a League of Legends-inspired ranking system beyond just obtaining Radiant. This will give everyone a chance to compete for rankings and dominate the leaderboard, so we can truly know who is the number one player in the world.
