New overtime mode added to VALORANT includes draws


A new win-by-two rule has been added to VALORANT competitive mode.

In VALORANT‘s July 7 patch 1.03 notes, a new tiebreaker format has been added to replace Valorant’s overtime mode.

“Competitive matches have a new win-by-two overtime format with automated votes on whether the game should continue or end in a draw,”

In this manner, teams will alternate playing rounds on defense and attack until a team is ahead by 2 rounds.

Every round will reset teams to 5000 credits and four points short of their Agents’ ultimate abilities (So agents with 6 points total will get 2 points)

If both teams lose and win one round, then the game will proceed to the overtime voting system.

If the tiebreaker was not able to decide a winner, the lobby will get to vote to either end in a draw or play two more rounds.

  • First Vote
    • At least 6 votes to end in a draw.
  • Second Vote
    • At least 3 votes to end in a draw.
  • Third Vote
    • At least 1 vote to end in a draw.
  • If the vote fails, the match will end in a draw.

Riot has said “Players might gain rank off a draw but will never lose rank”

A game of Valorant can take anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes to complete. It is no surprise that the developers added this voting system to prevent the game from dragging on too long.
