How to check Valorant Elo in 5 easy steps. Valorant is an extremely competitive hardcore shooter and that leaves a lot of players in elo hell when they play matchmaking. Every player has a certain elo, just like other games, however in Valorant players can only see their rank and not their elo.
Knowing how much elo you have is very important because it tells you how close you are from ranking up or deranking. It also allows you to calculate how many games you have to win or lose in order to rank up or down. The higher the elo, the higher the rank you will have.
Each rank has a set elo which is invisible, you gain elo by winning games and lose elo by losing games. Once you pass the elo threshold of a certain rank, you will be awarded that rank for the time being. If you beat a team with a higher average rank than your teams average rank, you will gain a lot of elo for that win and only lose a small amount if you lose and vice versa.
This is how pretty much all competitive shooter ranking systems work. So in this guide i’ll show you the quickest and only way to actually check your elo in Valorant. This is purely informational and not my program, if you have any issues caused by this program you can contact the developer himself.
Valorant MMR and why it’s important to ELO
Valorant like many other games, uses an MMR system (match making rating), basically its a ladder that consists of all players competing at a given time. Each player is ranked based on their elo, the person with the highest elo is rank 1. When you win games and your elo grows, the players you beat will have their elo decreased.
This will allow you to climb the ladder and overtake other player’s positions when your elo surpasses them. MMR and ELO are the invisible driving factors behind your ranking in Valorant and these mechanics of the game are running in the backend, however I’ll show you how to reveal this soon in the article.
