Valorant Patch 5.08 UI Changes Detailed
The updates are aimed at the screens and menu outside matches. Patch 5.08 aims to make menus stylish and consistent. Changes will be added to the MVP screen along with brand new lobby pre-match loading and end screens.
Riot Games hopes by fixing the UI that they make menus more legible and remove any visual clutter. The Agents as they appear in the menu will be presented in their 2D key art to highlight each character's unique personality.
Another change can be seen in the Face-off menu which will no longer show the map of the match. This will allow extra room for players to show off their banners titles and ranked badges. The end match screen will also show the whole team's stats right on the front rather than just the individual player's.
There are similarities to the UI in League of Legends. It is no surprise that Riot Games would try to replicate methods that made League of Legends the phenomenon it is. Riot Games will rely on the player's reaction to tweak the UI as updates come along. With the recent announcement of the new Agent, Harbor, Valorant players will have plenty to look forward to in the near future.
