Valorant’s 5.05 Patch was released on Sept. 7 and there were no major changes during this update because of the VCT Champions. Patch 5.05 includes a few bug fixes to improve the competitive scene, but what do Valorant players want to see in the upcoming patches? Here are three things we want.
Valorant Patch 5.05: 3 Things We Want
1. Voice chat bug/chat delay
Players are still experiencing the chat delay and there has been no comment by Riot Games that it will be fixed. Players have also shared on Reddit that there are always issues with trying to use voice chat and they are unable to speak. It seems like this bug has been fixed multiple times, but it keeps coming back. Although Riot has done something about this, players want a better fix because communicating with the team is very important in the game.
2. Agent Balance
Agents and their abilities are continuously being reworked, but sometimes that is not enough to balance all the agents. Chamber recently received a nerf, but players think he needs more of a change because he is still a strong sentinels agent. Reworking Chamber’s Rendezvous and teleports can help with how fast he is able to rotate. Reworking Astra is something many controller players have been asking for. Astra is the least-picked controller player and that is because it is like playing the waiting game with her utility.
3. Avoid Players
When playing Valorant, you can come across amazing players, but there is always someone who can be very toxic or throws your games. Many players have been asking to see a system like CS:GO where you can avoid a player. This was mentioned to be added in the future, but there is no clear timeline of when we can see it in the game.
