Riot Games Releases Warming Message To The Community Alongside Valorant Launch

Riot Games' first-person shooter Valorant went live on June 2, marking Valorant’s transition from beta to full release. The CEO of Riot Games, Nicolo Laurent, sent out a heartwarming message to the entire community showing Riot’s appreciation for the millions of gamers who have played the game already.

In a blog posted by Riot Games, Laurent stated that “Amidst everything that’s happening, our dedication to you remains strong. It’s the fabric that binds all of us together, and if we can build on the things that unite us, we can weather any difficulty around us. So, despite the challenges we are facing in the US and across the globe right now, we want you to have the chance to come together and create positive memories in the midst of all that is weighing on us.”

The Valorant team is excited about the hype they have created around Valorant within the first-person shooter community. Riot Games is already competing against the top FPS games such as Rainbow Six Siege, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Overwatch.

Laurent also addressed the rough times the world is going through right now. Riot Games is standing with the community to end events such as injustice for Black Americans and also the COVID-19 pandemic which is threatening the world’s population.

During this unfortunate time, Riot Games wants to help change the situation into a more positive one. Laurent concluded the blog post on a positive note, reassuring that Valorant will be a ray of light in this darkness.

Riot has also launched new agents, new game mode, and a new map after the end of the closed beta, along with multiple other buffs and nerfs for Sage, Phoenix, and Omen. Unfortunately, competitive game mode won’t be accessible to players until further notice as Riot wants to make sure everything is stable before adding in competitive matchmaking.

So, what are your thoughts on Riot Games’ launch for Valorant? Do you think the game will be a full-fledged esports success? Personally, I think it’s going to replace a number of competitive games and Valorant is here to stay for the long run. Whatever your thoughts may be, let us know in the comments below.
