VALORANT Patch Notes 3.05: Competitive Updates

    • Diamond 3 → Immortal 3
  • Adjusted Competitive ranked distribution as detailed in a previous article (To be released)

    • This queue is a standard, Unrated mode that will give players a chance to practice the new map before they see it in Competitive play.
    • Fracture-only queue will be available for 2 weeks, afterward, Fracture will enter other modes, including Competitive.

Premium Battlepass Bonus XP

  • Upgrading to the Premium Battlepass will grant a 3% XP boost toward the Battlepass tier progression for all matchmade games until the end of Act II
    • We believe the Battlepass experience is at its best when you’re able to earn hype rewards as you unlock tiers, hitting major milestones and feeling good about what you’ve earned.
  • This is not retroactive, so upgrading early will give you access to the most amount of XP
  • The XP boost does not apply toward Daily or Weekly Missions. 

SOCIAL UPDATES

  • Updated AFK detection logic to deter players from farming Battlepass/Account Levels by AFKing in-game modes like Deathmatch and Snowball Fight 

PERFORMANCE UPDATES

  • Updated the ping calculation to exclude the server frame time.
  • Updated markers used by NVIDIA Reflex
    • NVIDIA Reflex is used to reduce and measure rendering latency. This update should allow Reflex to better pace frames by adding present markers as well as fixes on some older markers.
