There is nothing quite worse than getting absolutely pummeled in a game, no more so when you can't give up and hand it to your opponent that they were the better team. It is a problem that many Valorant players will know all too well because during the closed beta there was no ability to surrender matches that were a forgone conclusion.
Riot say a surrender feature will soon be making its way into the game. (Picture: Riot Games)
That could be set to change with Riot devs confirmed that a surrender feature will be added putting the decision of ending the game in the playerâ€™s hands.
No player wants to sit through 13 or more rounds with an AFK player, griefers or when you are getting absolutely slammed and that is why implementing a surrender feature into Valorant is a great move by Riot Games.
This feature wonâ€™t be ready on release, but will be implemented by the developers "soon after launch". This is a step in the right direction for Riot Games.
However, the biggest controversy with a surrender feature is; when will the option be usable?
surrender feature coming soon after launch and AFK penalties are a lot higher, this is very good news for solo players at mid to low levels #VALORANTâ€” back to usual... sorry. (@OwFracture) June 1, 2020
Players donâ€™t want misuse of the surrender to ruin games and Riot would want it to only be used when a team is down a certain amount of rounds or a player has disconnected from the game.
