Valorant Patch Notes Have Arrived

Have you heard of Valorant? You might have. It's a little FPS game from Riot that's been making the rounds on CMG, Twitch and a few other places.

Maybe you're one of the 1,000s of people competing in our daily $250 guaranteed Valorant tournaments. Maybe you've just been watching from the shadows waiting for your own drop from Twitch. Or maybe you're already one of the top players sniping and slashing your way through the ranks. 

Whoever you are, you should probably take a look at the latest Valorant patch notes

The most notable changes are to Raze and Sage. Raze had her Paint Shells reduced from 2 to 1 and they now have a kill reset when players notch 2 kills. She also recieved audio adjustments so her abilities would be easier to hear in hectic situations. Riot stepped back from nerfing her to hard because they "predict savvy players will perform better against her over time."

Sage recieved a couple sizeable changes to her Slow Orb. It now "also slows the air speed of players in the zone" and players can walk through it without making noise. According to Riot, "Players were able to circumvent too much of Sage’s Slow Orb by bunny hopping through the zone" and "dding a stealthy yet slow way to move through the field brings more nuance to playing against the zone and a bit more uncertainty for Sage."

The other major change coming for Valorant with this patch has to do with Melee Damage. Melee attacks now inflict double the damage per hit to Sage's barrier, Haven's metal double doors and other destructibles.
