The new game mode's name was announced on ESPN Esports va Joe Ziegler (@riotziegler). Spike Rush.

What we know, per Ziegler, is that it is similar to the core game place of VALORANT but a much shorter game length. It is designed to be quick fun and something you can play in about 10 minutes. It is meant to be a fun experience for inbetween games, or a quick warmup, or cool down / cool off.

From the v1 patch notes: "Spike Rush (beta) also arrives to deliver a fresh and more hectic flavor of VALORANT."

@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!
