VALORANT News: ignition

Game Launch Times Released

Mon, Jun 1, 2020

VALORANT is launching on Tuesday, June 2nd and release times have been revealed for each region:

Korea, Japan, Asia-Pacific: 8AM KST

EU, Turkey, MENA, Russia & CIS: 7AM CEST

NA, LATAM & South America: 5AM PDT / 8AM EDT

The image accompanying the post on social media appears to be the opening frame from a short film / trailer. In addition to the text reading, “Episode 01: Ignition”. There’s also smaller text below the title that reads “Ascent // Italy” under the title.

This suggests that there are seasons in VALORANT, called “Episodes,  and the first season is known as Ignition. Maybe we’ll get a bit more information about the Agent’s backstories in this opening trailer.

The image and text also suggest the new map could be based around an Italian theme. The trailer that accompanied the launch date reveal, showed Jett jumping over a canal with gondolas. That scene looked exactly like Venice, Italy. Maybe the new map will be based in Venice? Either way we can’t wait to play VALORANT during the official launch!

@Bloomed Well they do have software installed on your computer, so they could get your hardware MAC address pretty easily. They aren't confined to the limits of the web browser as you are insinuating.

I would bet they can combine MAC address with your hardware profile to come up with a pretty...

How does a hardware ban really work? Do they do like a mac address ban? Can they ban a mac address? Can they even see a mac address? I don't think mac addresses leave your local area network so even if you are online they aren't seeing your mac address just your IP or something

Zedd didn't merely play Overwatch! He performed at the 2019 grand finals, reached grandmaster status as a Widow main (though rumors that he was boosted there), and has an official honorary Widowmaker-Zedd skin!
