A new Valorant agent has already had their animations leaked

As long as there’s a data miner, there’s a leak and Riot Games is finding that Valorant is no different. Fans, and specifically Valorant Express on Twitter, have been hard at work searching for any development details about the new FPS and they’ve found more than one hint on where the game is going next.

First, let’s talk about the next potential agent coming to the game, Killjoy. Riot has recently come out and said that they are aiming for around six new agents a year for Valorant, and so although Reyna has only just settled into the game, it’s not long before another agent will join the roster. And according to this data mine, it’s likely someone called (or codenamed) Killjoy will be added next.

Fans think that they’re the next agent because of an update to Killjoy’s files, regarding something to do with ‘Static Lightning’ – very possibly an ability for the agent. Within the VFX materials of the game, there is a similar reference to lightning. More excitingly, there is also an ultimate animation within the game for Killjoy where with a hunched back they struggle with some unknown (probably more lightning) power.

Some of the other leaks that the account has been breaking include the potential for a new Cyberpunk inspired skin set and a ‘Fallen’ skin set. It’s also rumoured that left-handed support is coming to the game soon.

When it comes to any competitive changes, it looks like the biggest change may be the inclusion of timeouts – pauses in the games that players can ask for. From the screenshot Valorant Express posted, it looks like these will be voted events – giving the team a say in if everyone gets a break or not.

It’s all very exciting but right now it’s all just leaks, and nothing is final yet. Right now we’re just enjoying the arrival of the fiery Elderflame skins.

NG continue to add to their international roster with the signing of another high-profile player in the Asian scene, Erdenetsogt “⁠erkaSt⁠” Gantulga, bringing the player count in the starting lineup up to four, each one of them from a different country.

Now a household name in Asia, erkaSt first made a name for himself in Oceania, where he was part of the Grayhound squad that played at IEM Sydney in 2018 and 2019, made two ESL Pro League Finals and competed at the IEM Katowice 2019 and StarLadder Berlin Major’s New Challengers Stages.

erkaSt will play under the NG banner from now on

The Mongolian player then had to return to his home country after not being able to secure a work visa in Australia following the StarLadder Major, where he achieved moderate success with TIGER, winning the first Regional Major Ranking tournament, the Weibo Cup Asian Championship and making the final of the latest RMR tournament, Perfect World Asia League Fall.

Since returning to Mongolia erkaSt has accrued a 1.15 rating and has had strong performances at all of the RMR tournaments with a 1.20 rating at ESL One: Road to Rio Asia as well as 1.19 and 1.14 ratings at the PAL Summer and Fall events, respectively.

“For the past year since Grayhound, I’ve been playing with and giving my experiences to my fellow Mongolians and the community there as a player”, erkaSt says, “but from today onward, I’m very excited to call NG a new home and really looking forward to play with my new teammates and the journey ahead of us. Thank you for all your support and especially NG for giving me this opportunity!”

NG are now:

Singapore Anthony “⁠ImpressioN⁠” Lim
Korea Hyun-Pyo “⁠XigN⁠” Lee
Thailand Thotsaphon “⁠cbbk⁠” Suphatthanaphalaphon
Mongolia Erdenetsogt “⁠erkaSt⁠” Gantulga

XTQZZZ on Vitality’s six-man roster: “We’re going to make substitutions mid-series depending on the map”

Vitality coach Rémy “⁠XTQZZZ⁠” Quoniam has revealed that Nabil “⁠Nivera⁠” Benrlitom will start practising with the team this week as part of a rotation system that will be employed moving forward. The 19-year-old is expected to make his debut in the BLAST Premier Final Series — the perfect proving ground for the former Heretics player as the team are already qualified for the BLAST Global Finals.

“The team will make substitutions mid-series depending on the map,” XTQZZZ wrote in a Twitlonger post. “It will allow some players to rest on training days (very few until the end of the year), to rotate, to be able to make decisions and to remain as competitive as possible.”

XTQZZZ says players will rotate to avoid burnout

XTQZZZ gives three reasons for the expansion of Vitality‘s roster, starting with the congested fixture schedule in Counter-Strike. “We have had a much higher number of tournaments, matches and weeks over the years,” he said. “This is essentially related to business, where we’re looking for a profitability that does not currently exist.”

The second reason he gave is the team’s struggle to perform consistently in a packed schedule while facing constant pressure to obtain results. This, according to him, affects “preparation ahead of intense matches”.

The French coach also talked about mental health and burnout, a hot topic as several players have requested medical leaves this year due to the heavy workload. “These problems are essentially created by a loss of balance, a loss of fulfilment, a loss in the professional life and a loss of pleasure,” he explained. “We must pay attention to each one of our players.”

Regarding the addition of Nivera to the roster and the effect that it will have on the group, XTQZZZ insisted that the Belgian player will not be claiming anyone’s spot in the starting lineup. “Vitality’s objective is to continue training young talents while keeping the experience of our legends. Nabil doesn’t come to bench anyone.”

The French coach also shared his thoughts about jumping into uncharted territory, saying that Vitality will “give the project a certain amount of time to see if it can be effective, well-received and beneficial.”

“We will try to adapt to the system in the short/medium term,” he added. “In six months it may be different or perhaps even more complicated, but none of us can predict the future with the current situation.”
