Playing solo or in pairs against a full 5 stack team has long been a subject of debate among the Valorant community. While the skilled players appreciated the extra RR obtained by winning such matches, others were rather sour about it.

To effectively fix such concerns, because the Riot Valorant developers do take its community seriously, the Ranked Rating is re-calibrated! Read on to find out how playing with friends above your Valorant rank is now possible within the same party!

Valorant Rank Queue Stacking – Valorant Smurf Fix!

Valorant smurf has plagued many Valorant players within the lower rank matches for a while, and developers have a solution!

Valorant Patch 3.10

…removing All ranked restrictions from 5-stack parties in Competitive Queue.

Although such a change is astonishing, it is ultimately fantastic for every valorant player indulging in competitive valorant matches. If skill disparity is your greatest concern with this update, fear not. Concrete ruleset measures are enacted in the queuing system to prevent scenarios abusing the competitive gameplay integrity.

While its pending to see how it changes the Valorant Meta, here’s what can unfold with this adjustment:

When Every Valorant Player in a Party is Under Diamond 2 Rank

  • Expect extended queue times.

Your party will only match with a 5 stack team with a similar MMR average.

  • Reduced Rank Rating (RR) gains.

The reward sum of RR depends on the disparity of rank within the party individually.

-> For instance, facing 50% RR reduction in a full-team with the lowest player at Silver 1 & highest at Platinum 1.

The rank disparity is only 1 rank above and below the previous standard group restrictions.

-> Similar example except with one Bronze 1 player, one Silver 1, and one Platinum 1 player, gets team 75% RR reduction.

It is because the rank disparity between Bronze and Platinum is 4 levels against the previous standard group restrictions.

When one or many Valorant Players in a Party are Diamond 3 or Higher

  • Dramatically extended queue times.

The queue could take an indefinite amount of time to pair you only with another 5-stack team having a similar MMR.

  • Minimum 50% RR gain reduction to all players & up to 90% with greater skill disparity.

All members of a 5 stack will face a 50% RR reduction, with respective greater reduction for higher-ranked players.

-> For instance, facing 75% RR reduction to all in a party having 4 Immortal rank players & 1 Diamond 2 player.

It is because the skill disparity is significantly higher between one of the players with others.

When one or many Valorant Players are Radiant Rank Players

  • Dramatically extended queue times.

The queue could take an indefinite amount of time to pair you only with another 5-stack team having a similar MMR.

  • Minimum 75% RR reduction to the entire team

A Radiant Valorant player engaging in a competitive game with any other rank will automatically get 90% decreased RR gains.

Moreover, parallel to such 5 stack team arrangements, developers are removing 4 stack queue arrangements from Competitive matches. Such a change is made to prevent the playing experience of the solo player from being typically worse or dissatisfactory.

Valorant has launched a New Valorant Agent, and it’s a Sentinel-class agent called Chamber. The range of Chamber Abilities has already been introduced during the launch of the Valorant 3.09 patch.

Yet, let’s explore him formally since developers couldn’t previously release him sooner due to unresolved performance issues concerning his gameplay.

Chamber Abilities

Chamber Biography & Unique Abilities

The Valorant New patch 3.10 brings the French Weapon Expert Chamber, a precision kill expert carrying a unique arsenal. His abilities can help to trap or confuse enemies and tag them from afar when utilized correctly.

His voice lines do reflect a French accent & he’s said to carry a contingency plan for practically every situation. Sounds promising? Let’s check out his unique abilities!

The Valorant New patch sure seems exciting for players awaiting the new Valorant Chamber Agent. It will be better to practice with the agent first in the Custom/Unrated game mode to understand his abilities better. Lastly, we recommend not picking the agent for a competitive game without properly familiarizing yourself with his abilities.  Happy Gaming!
