Suppose you have been playing Valorant for a while. In that case, it’s almost certain that you have experienced the misery of playing a full match with a disconnected player. It makes the whole game a slow death, and everyone spends more time in team chat than planning for the round.
Riot Games have solved the problem, and now you can remake a Valorant match. There are so many players worried about the implications of using the remake feature, so we will clear a few misconceptions today and teach you how to use the remake feature.
How to remake in Valorant?
If your match history is entirely red and you have been playing with lopsided teams, then it’s your lucky day. You can get out of it, and we’ve prepared a guide to show you how to remake in Valorant.
You and other connected players can initiate a remake vote if a player disconnects on your team! The players can activate the remake very swiftly. Still, you have to remember that it’s only possible to use the remake option in the second round of the game.
Suppose someone disconnects at the start of the first round and aren’t back till the end of the first round. The team members can execute the “remake” command at the beginning of the second round by typing ‘/remake’ in the chat. It will pop up a voting system on the right side of your screen. If all the players cast yes votes, the match will be remade.
What if one of the players votes no to remaking?
Unfortunately, a remake in Riot Games’ competitive shooter Valorant can only succeed if all the players agree.
Suppose you have four players remaining on the team, and one of them votes no because their premade will come in the next round. There will be no remake in this scenario, and you have to play several rounds with fewer players than the enemy team.
Will the remade games contribute to MMR loss?
Valorant players would be happy to know that if they aren’t the disconnected player, there will be no punishment. The player who disconnected would get a leaver penalty and won’t queue again for some time. They might also get an MMR loss if disconnecting is common.
You should remake a game whenever you get the opportunity! It’s not your fault, and you shouldn’t try to salvage the game even if you won the first round because they might disconnect in the game once again!
What if your premade friend is the disconnected one?
Suppose your friend is disconnected, and the other team members want to initiate a remake vote. In that case, you should accept their decision. If you force them to play and say things like your friend is coming in the next round, they will blame your disconnected friend and start fighting you. It will dampen the game’s mood, and the better approach is to select the yes option in the remake vote.
