A new Valorant leak from ValorLeaks on Twitter revealed a new competitive rank coming to the game.

Ascendant, featuring an emerald green design, is a new rank between Diamond and Immortal, according to ValorLeaks. If the leak holds to be true, this would be the ninth rank to be added and would also include three divisions like others in the game.

The new ranking system, should Ascendant make its way to live servers, would look like the following:

  • Iron
  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Diamond
  • Ascendant
  • Immortal
  • Radiant

Think of Ascendant acting similarly to Masters in League of Legends. For Riot Games' popular MOBA, there is a Masters rank between Diamond and Grandmasters with Challenger sitting as the highest rank. Radiant would translate to Challenger in this situation with Immortal essentially becoming Grandmaster.

Fans hope this new rank creates more stability in the ranking system as the game approaches Episode 5 Act 1.


UPDATE (June 16, 1:59 p.m. ET): Riot Games confirmed the new Ascendant rank in a Valorant developer live stream.
