Riot Games are taking back the 1.11 Valorant patch after a “technical nightmare” in the latest update brought with it a few more problems than it was meant to fix.

It’s a pretty big update too. After pushing up the release for a new map and hyping up the latest Agent, Skye, there’s been a lot of anticipation for this patch. Unfortunately, not all worked out how the studio wanted, leading them to make a major decision that affects all players.

“We’ll be rolling back the patch for North America, Brazil, and LATAM (one at a time). We’re also delaying all other regions until we get a fix,” the company announced on October 27.

It should be noted that the Valorant First Strike x NSG Qualifiers and the Patch 1.11 were on a collision course before the update’s roll back.

There were plenty of people, both pros and casuals alike, who were noticing problems with the latest offering almost immediately after downloading it.

Riot have locked in a new date for the Patch 1.11 update though: November 2. They’ve got a stable patch locked and loaded, and are ready to ship it to players as soon as possible.

“We have a stable patch to ship beginning 8am PT on November 2. The Americas will go first, then we’ll roll out to KR/JP/OCE/SEA and EU/TR/MENA/CIS regions thereafter,” the devs announced on October 30.

“This shouldn’t disrupt our regular patch schedule, so expect a small one next week. Skye will be immediately available post-patch, and Reaver will be available in the store the day after the patch.”

Valorant 1.11 bug issues

While there were still old bugs like Viper’s ultimate or Brim’s smokes improperly reducing vision from within them, new – and slightly disturbing – bugs were also introduced to the game.

One of the biggest offenders was a glitch that randomly showed Sage’s character assets on the screen while navigating around smokes like Omen’s Dark Cover.

A lot of people managed to find it, even 100 Thieves teammates HiKo and steel on separate occasions during a game.

It’s a ‘blink and you miss it’ type of bug. But it can be really distracting when it appears then reappears numerous times while pushing up on a smoke.

There were other glaring issues like more stuttering when getting a headshot or if an opponent appears on the screen, but the devs should be on the case.

The delay now puts the refurbished 1.11 patch due at the start of November on the 2nd, if the Valorant developers find and fix all that needs to be addressed in time.
