Riot Games opened Valorant closed beta key drops to all Twitch streamers broadcasting the game Tuesday, increasing the avenues by which would-be players can gain access.
Although beta key drops are occurring around the clock on all these channels, the number of drops will not increase. Riot Games manually provided beta keys to a few thousand of the most engaged Valorant stream viewers that had yet to receive keys.
"We know it hurts to be unlucky," lead producer Anna Donlon and game director Joe Ziegler wrote in a blog post. "Thank you, your internet, and your eyeballs."
Tuesday's update also brought a 25% increase to server loads as Riot Games moves to meet demand.
"We are still in the active process of rolling out server infrastructure around the world—including more in EU and NA—and closed beta is doing a great job of telling us where we need to be," wrote Donlon and Ziegler.
As server load increases, so, too, does the number of account sellers. Riot Games has banned many such sellers, and is actively tracking further ban candidates.
