Another Ask Valorant session has been hosted this week, and this time Riot has gone in-depth on the game’s rank rating system. Specifically, how the game’s hidden MMR system relates the visible RR that players gain and lose according to their performances in competitive mode –something that has been the subject of much discussion around the community.
The article is very in-depth, so I won’t be covering all the points here, but here’s the TL;DR breakdown and a handy image that helps illustrate how the two stats –MMR and RR– relate to each other and affect how often players either rank up or down after competitive matches:
- If your MMR is higher than your rank, you’ll gain more RR on wins than you lose on losses
- If your MMR is even with your rank, you’ll gain and lose closer amounts of RR for wins and losses
- If your MMR is lower than your rank, you’ll gain less RR on wins and lose more on losses
In other recent Valorant news, the game’s latest patch, 2.05, recently went live, introducing new disciplinary measures to combat bad practices. Also, a new skin pack has just gone live, which is inspired by 20th-century guns.
