Riot adjusts Bind pickrate in VALORANT’s Escalation mode2021-02-22 20:56:00
Riot Games is aware of VALORANT players camping in the teleporter in the Escalation game mode, and it has lowered the pick rate for Bind while it works on a fix.
Escalation is the newest game mode introduced to VALORANT: each team progresses through different weapons by killing enemies, and the first team to successfully finish all weapons wins the match.
A few players discovered an annoying tactic that allows them to continuously hide in the teleporter on Bind. This forces opposing players to enter the teleporter to kill them, but the teleporter players have the advantage.
Riot acknowledged the issue and is working on stopping the camping that will be introduced in Patch 2.04. In the meantime, the developers have lowered the Bind pick rates in Escalation, which will prevent players from encountering the issue as often.
We heard your concerns about the chaos that is playing Escalation on Bind. With Patch 2.04, we're working on ways to stop camping at the TP.
For now, we're adjusting the pick rate for Bind to lower your chances of playing Escalation on this map. Hope this helps!
