Valorant’s latest patch ends up a ‘technical nightmare’ and earns a rollback

You know it’s not a good patch week when the game’s studio comes right out and admits that the release has been a “technical nightmare” and is being rolled back to try again. But that’s exactly what’s been happening in Valorant this week, and it’s a huge pile of suck all around.

“Real talk: 1.11 has been a technical nightmare,” Riot Games posted yesterday. “In 30 minutes, we’ll be rolling back the patch for North America, Brazil, and LATAM (one at a time). We’re also delaying all other regions until we get a fix. We know we’ve said this every patch, but thanks for sticking by. We’ll redeploy later in the week once we can figure out a less disruptive time for the VALORANT First Strike Qualifiers (and have a solution, obviously).”

Riot clarified to PC Gamer that the patch ended up being incredibly unstable: “The instability of this patch was particularly egregious because it impacted competitive integrity, so we’re rolling it back until we can fix it.”

One of the big selling features of the patch was the addition of the character Skye. Riot said that if players happened to roll her during the patch mess, they’ll have to wait until the redeployment of the update to make progress with her.

I don’t care who you are, this is a NIGHTMARE for players, devs, eAthletes, everyone. This is the worst case scenario come to life, bub. My sympathies to the Valorant community while this gets dealt with.

I meant in the general sense, when a patch has to be reverted for any game. Apologies for not making that clearer, too much blood in my caffeine stream currently.
