While Patch 3.06 of Valorant brought many welcome balance changes, some characters were not touched that really needed a bump in terms of strength. The bottom tier of Valorant’s Agent list was not really shifted much, in fact seeing some characters not being buffed in this update was shocking for some. Here are the five worst Agents currently in Valorant after Patch 3.06

While Breach for many players is the most annoying Agent to go up against, he really is not nearly as impactful as many other agents in the game, and after KAY-O was buffed, he is now most definitely the worst Initiator in the game. His flash is still quite impactful, but the rest of his kit can be described as nothing more than inconvenient. The two stuns he has can both be avoided pretty easily on many maps, and even if they do hit a player, it is not uncommon for a victim of Rolling Thunder to get a lucky tap shot onto an opposing player. Breach really is annoying to play against, nothing more. he can be effective in the right hands, but many Agents fill his role better.

Like Breach, Phoenix is not inherently a bad Agent. Unfortunately, his role is simply done better by others in the Agent pool. Phoenix’s flashes having such a limited range really hurt his effectiveness as an entry, and his fire-based abilities either don’t do enough damage or don’t last long enough to impact a round. His ult is incredibly useful in certain situations but is more about gathering info than anything, and some free abilities do the same thing.

Cypher suffers again from having his toes stepped on by other Agents, but unlike Phoenix and Breach, he is genuinely a weak Agent. His traps are now easily recognizable by most players and his camera spots are known as well. The element of surprise Cypher’s traps used to give are no longer there as players have learned where the best spots are for them. His ultimate is probably the worst in the game as well, as it provides useful information, but free abilities like the recon dart of Sova do the same thing but even better. There are very few situations where Cypher is usable in Valorant right now, and he would need some sweeping changes to get back in the meta.

This part of the list is where the Agents are genuinely bad. Brimstone is by far the worst non Yoru Agent in the game, and he would comfortably be the worst Agent in Valorant if Yoru wasn’t simply useless. His smokes are the weakest of any controller due to their smaller size and limited range. His stim and molly can give value, but they don’t give nearly enough to give him any playability. His ultimate can zone incredibly well, but is easily avoidable and doesn’t last long enough to bring enough value. Like the smokes, his ultimate also suffers from limited range. Brimstone needs a lot of changes to become useable over any other smoke-centric character, starting with addressing his range issues.

Yoru deserves a bottom five list all to himself. This Agent was underpowered since he was introduced into the game and Riot has done nothing to help that fact since then. Every part of Yoru’s kit is underwhelming other than his ultimate, and even that is just mediocre. His footstep ability is borderline unusable, as most players know that they are fake due to the different sounding footsteps. His teleport is not bad on its own, but its large audio radius as well as its ability to be seen from a somewhat decent range causes this ability to be very difficult to use and provides minimal profit. Yoru players will almost always have to invest at least a flash along with the teleport to make sure they aren’t shot in the head the moment he activates it. Riot has said that a rework is coming for this Agent, and it cannot come soon enough. Every ability he has needs change to make him viable, but for now, he is at the bottom of this list by a considerable margin.

New World team share details of upcoming server transfers in Q&A

Published

on

New World players have been eagerly awaiting news on the promised server transfers that Amazon Game Studios announced to remedy long server queues on launch. While they have been delayed, many questions were answered regarding the subject during a Q&A on the New World forum earlier today.

The Q&A took the most popular questions from the community regarding the server transfer service and provided some insight into its limitations, what players can expect, but sadly, no official date for it to join the game.

When server transfers are added to the game, all players will receive a single transfer token that is tied to the account, not character. This means that if you have multiple characters, you’ll only be able to transfer one. These tokens will be permanent so they can be used any time after distribution.

Amazon also confirmed that players will only be able to transfer between servers in the same region, but cross-region transfers are something the team is looking into for the future.

Something that players were worried about was not being able to transfer into servers that are currently marked ‘full,’ but the team attempted to ease fears of this by sharing that many servers will have the ‘full’ tag removed over the coming days.

“We monitor full status on a daily basis with changes as recently as today,” the spokesperson wrote. “’Full’ doesn’t indicate a server that always has queues, it indicates a server that during typical peak usage has a substantial queue. We will be relaxing Full status on many worlds when transfers start, to allow the most flexibility possible. After transfers have slowed down we will re-evaluate which worlds might still need the designation.”

If server transfers overwork a server, the team said they will re-evaluate and hand out new transfer tokens to players where necessary.

There were plenty of other questions answered so if you’d like to know what was said in detail you can check out the Q&A here.

NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

Published

on

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment. 

This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10. 

“By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the current lineup,” NoPing said. “We respect the decision and wish success to the players that took the NoPing VPN name to various achievements in Dota 2.” 

Neither NoPing nor the players—William “hFn” Medeiros, Gonzalo “Darkmago” Herrera, Oscar Chavez, Farith “Matthew” Puente, and Jose “Panda” Padilla Hernandez—specified why the decision was made, but it is likely due to the team failing to qualify for TI10. Even though they were one of three teams from SA to make it to a Major, finishing ninth at the WePlay AniMajor, they flamed out in the regional qualifiers, losing to Infinity and Team Unknown.

It is also unclear if the players wish to continue playing together or if they will disband entirely and look to find teams elsewhere rather than pursuing a new sponsor together. Here are the players that are now looking for a new home. 

With this announcement, only beastcoast and SG esports remain untouched among the top four teams in SA, meaning they have an edge heading into the next DPC season if their squads remain together. The ex-TP players did note that they would continue playing together, so even if they don’t find a new sponsor they will likely still be a force in the region.

Call of Duty: Mobile season 9 is called Nightmare

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile’s season nine is almost here. The new season will be called Nightmare, Activision revealed today, as Halloween is right around the corner.

As usual, a lot of new content is dropping with the season. This includes a Battle Pass (BP) which contains a new operator, weapon, blueprints, calling cards, charms, and more.

At tier 14 of the free BP, players will be able to get the Tak-5 Operator Skill. This skill gives players the ability to heal their team in battle. Besides this, players will be able to get the Swordfish at tier 21. This tactical rifle was first seen in Black Ops 4 and is now making its way to CoD: Mobile as well.

Modern Warfare’s Havoc Sawmill will be the new map for season nine. Additionally, the Halloween Standoff is returning to the game for a limited time as well to mark the festival.

Later in the season, players will also be able to unlock a new weapon, tactical equipment, and battle royale class through seasonal challenges. The weapon is called Thumper, which is a grenade launcher with just one ammunition. Flash Drone is the new tactical equipment that blinds enemies. Finally, the Pumped BR Class gives players a jetpack to take to the skies.

The season will last for about a month. The new content will be available gradually throughout season nine, Nightmare.
