By the end of this year, Valorant to get dedicated Indian servers
If you've been keeping up with the latest in Gaming, you know that Riot Games' all new FPS title Valorant is all the rage. The game came out officially less than a week ago, before which the closed beta was ongoing.
With a successful launch in almost all countries, they have decided to provide dedicated servers for countries in South East Asia and other parts of Asia as well. By the end of this year, gamers in India can expect dedicated Valorant servers.
Expect better games
Essentially, having servers for India within India means that all the players in the area will be pitted against one another. This will put an end to all latency and ping related woes that often plague a game of Valorant.
Following the installation of new servers, Indians can expect ping of less than 100ms, which is ideal. Currently, if you have a slow network, your ping will most likely fluctuate and stay above 100ms, which isn't all that bad but it gets in the way.
This is a rather interesting move by Riot Games. Initially, the game wasn't even going to launch in India and several other South East Asian countries. However, it seems that the launch has been successful and people all over have picked up this game.
Servers by the end of this year
Sukamal Pegu who is the publishing head of South Asia for Valorant remarked “While you’ll be joining the worldwide launch on June 2, the official servers which will support the Middle East & South Asia will come later in the year. Players in South Asia will be playing on the South East Asia servers (for now), and though you will experience a higher ping, you’ll still be able to engage in enjoyable competitive battles.”
At any rate, we're looking forward to see this game grow and get a dedicated playerbase.
