Valorant : Mode Replay

Riot Games is working on a Replay mode in Valorant

16th July 2020 – 7:10pm

In a new Ask VALORANT, Riot Games confirms the arrival of a replay tool to see your own games again.

The replay features are hard to implement, but are invaluable. They allow competitive players of all skill levels to have un regard critique sur leurs propres parties. À l’heure actuelle, les joueurs professionnels enregistrent déjà leurs parties et leurs entraînements. Ils revisionnent également leurs matchs, mais aussi les matchs des autres. Le but est bien entendu d’analyser les différentes stratégies des joueurs, mais aussi constater ses propres erreurs.

La plupart des jeux compétitifs du moment, a fortiori les FPS, proposent désormais ces options. Riot Games avait déjà créé un outil très performant pour League of Legends, offrant énormément de possibilités ainsi que des statistiques poussées. On espère donc profiter de leur expertise dans ce milieu.

However, we will have to be patient, since Riot has not even started working on it. It would be one of their next projects. Let's note anyway that recent developments in spectator mode are remarkable and should greatly benefit a replay feature.

It this same edition of Ask VALORANT, Riot Games returns precisely to the spectator mode. The developers say that while the tool has been improved, it's still far from meeting all of their expectations, as well as those of commentators. In order for Valorant to become high-quality esports entertainment, it's essential to offer numerous features.

This is the priority project of the team in charge. For this, the Ignition Series provide an ideal environment to test new tools and see what works and what doesn't.

You will therefore have to be patient if you plan to analyse all the details of your games using internal tools. In the meantime, we advise you to record your games to do so. You will certainly learn a lot.
