Valorant artwork for the Agent Skye

[Update]: Valorant update has fixed some of the common complaints about the Icebox map.

When Update 1.11 arrived a little while ago, it brought with it a brand new Agent by the name of Skye, numerous balance changes, the introduction of the Icebox map to competitive play, and a whole bunch of quality of life improvements. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the update also broke the entirety of Valorant.

On the funnier side of things you had bugs like Omen's smoke displaying Sage's texture files for some bizarre reason, while on the less fun side of things you had bugs that caused performance problems and malfunctioning abilities, both of which made regular gameplay a bit of a nightmare. With all of that in mind, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that Riot Games quickly pulled the patch back.

A few days have gone by since then, and I'm happy to say Update 1.11 has now made a triumphant return. The bugs have been corrected, you can now properly swap between the left and right viewmodels, and the performance is once again rock-solid! So if you were waiting for the update to arrive before diving back into Valorant, this would be the time to do so.

You can learn more about Update 1.11 by hopping over to the official patch notes, and just in case you haven't seen her already, I'll leave you with Skye's ability preview. Enjoy!
