Not rude. I actually don't know because I never checked.

Or when someone from the enemy team texts "Nice arrow Sova"

Oh yeah, that's just pure embarrassment at that point.

Question regarding this, how come the same variants weren't introduced to ion 1.0, and why did prime 2.0 have diff colors? Personally speaking, I'd like all of them to be matched. I don't own them all, but just a personal thing

Ion - we wanted to make variants but our team was very small and we didn't have time, so we chose between either Reaver or Ion having variants

Prime//2.0 - it's not the same as original Prime (new design entirely), so we wanted to add new variants; Ion, Oni, RGX, and Reaver are continuations of the same theme but Prime//2.0 is a re-invention

Weird. Seems like having devs using the skins in game would be a net positive.

We have internal test accounts we use for internal playtests (while we are also testing out new agents, maps, etc.), so we get that net positive for testing the skins to make sure they're working well, bugs, etc.

Huh, I always thought Riot employees would at least get a small amount of Creds or RP, and now I know you guys dont.

You're right, we get a play fund, which is awesome: https://www.riotgames.com/en/work-with-us/life-at-riot/riots-play-fund. It's a nice perk. I'm terrible though because I end up spending more than that because I buy so many games and skins. I've already spent more than $400 in 2023 between Steam games, 2 Nintendo Switch games, and VALORANT skins and it's not even March.

What do you mean? If you mean the blue paint swipe, that's also on the Oni Phantom

Yes generally when you love something, you also love the same thing? Doesn't make it a good product, your niche has been filled by 1.0.

They want a Vandal, so it's not fulfilled til they get the Vandal.

You guys did a great job, when the teaser dropped yesterday I immediately re-equipped the Oni Shorty, Bucky, and Guardian that I haven't used in months. Phantom was already set to Oni. I'm looking forward to having the full Oni 1.0 and 2.0 Collection equipped with the katana.

that's so hype! you'll have the full set! what's your favorite variant?

Wait, what? You don’t just have it for free? Legit mindblown lol.

No, we play like players and have to unlock and pay for all the stuff same as players. I prefer it that way because I feel good about the stuff we're making if I am buying/grinding for it too.

Do you have an idea if it was ever considered to make n oni skin for a sheriff or operator? I personally love this skin line but I don't really use the bulldogs or the aries. Most players can vouch that the gun selection was odd for such an overhyped 2.0 skyline.

We decided this a long time ago (Oni has been in development for about 2 years). IIRC we felt we had a lot of top tier Sheriff and Operator skins, so we wanted to include some guns that had less evolving skins.

Been learning Phoenix, and I die inside when I use my wall to help provide coverage for my team, only for the wall to not even go fully across the way to cover them. :(
