VALORANT’s MMR or more commonly known as Matchmaking Rating has always been under public scrutiny as many players feel they can’t determine exactly how many green arrows they need to ascend to the next rank.

Riot has talked about how their ranking system works in the past. They even explained why they don’t want to reveal more details regarding a player’s exact rank number as that may lead to more frustrations for the players.

Following player feedback, Riot did decide to add green and red arrows to signify whether your stats improved or not. While this change was great for most players, some were still not happy as they felt Riot needs to give more clarification on the ranking system.

Leak reveals hidden point requirements

A new leak from a pretty reliable data miner in VALORANT reveals the actual points required to rank up in the ranked game mode. Turns out, there is a hidden points system in place to determine if a player can actually rank up or not.

Every time a player loses a match the point goes down and with each win players gain extra points. Apparently, when a player reaches 100 points in total, they get a promotion by ranking up. However, how low a player can get without deranking is still uncertain, but some are speculating that reaching below 30 points might be the trigger.

This hidden system already exists in the game’s current patch, according to the data miner. Since these are all still leaks, take them with a grain of salt. That being said, this hidden system currently determines the ranking process, and some players want a more thorough system from Riot.
