Riot Dev Reveals Some New Information About Ranked MMR
VALORANT Episode #3 is now in full swing. A new ranked act brings back the age old question of progression and matchmaking. In the previous Act, the developers stated that some ranks feel bloated due to the large number of players who are stuck in that percentile.
@RiotEvrMoar, VALORANT’s senior competitor designer, recently shared some untold facts about ranked MMR. He explained that points are determined by four main factors. His tweet attracted many VALORANT players, pros, and content creators.
The Act 2 ranking system was a problem for players. A lot of this had to do matchmaking. The recent discussion was led by @RiotEvrMoar, who revealed how ranked is a ladder and that winning games is basically stealing MMR from other players to climb higher.

VALORANT: RiotEvrMoar reveals how Ranked Progression Works in Act 3
@RiotEvrMoar tweeted on 22 July that they are trying to figure out the reason lower ranks are so bloated. He explained that it was about distribution which is the percentage players in each rank. He then confirmed that Act 3 will see ranked changes.
The senior competitive designer recently posted the following: “Your point gain is determined by four things!” We give you points for wins, round differential and performance/how you do in your MMR. We then multiply this amount by an amount that is related to your rank: MMR. This was said in the past. We are just sharing it again!
This shows that a player’s ranking is determined by whether or not the team wins the match. It also depends on how many rounds they win/lose and how impactful the encounters were. He also said that players should finish matches, not surrender mid-game. It is believed that the more rounds you win back, the less points you lose at the end of a match.
RiotEvrMoar explained how encounter MMR works within VALORANT. He explained that encounter MMR adjusts your MMR based on all interactions in the match. The performance bonus is a RR bonus that rewards you for performing better than your MMR expected.
