VALORANT is here!

The VALORANT closed beta is open in NA and EU and the response has been overwhelmingly positive!

However, the interest from cheaters has also been very high and we had to ban our first cheaters during the first week of the closed beta.

There's also been a lot of interest around the details of the Riot Vanguard anti-cheat system, especially the kernel component. I ended up talking on reddit about it a fair bit and even got some interest from the gaming press (I sent written statements to some outlets, don't know if they'll run the articles though Edit: Ars TechnicaKotaku and Polygon).

I also wrote a big article about the VALORANT Fog of War system that I'm really proud of. It has some gameplay clips and some illustrations I made as well as a good overview of the road we took to shipping that system.

It's been a really busy first week but it's all looking really promising!
