Skye could have come to the dwell servers with one of many most stacked capacity kits {that a} Valorant agent can ask for.

Nonetheless, not each participant feels the brand new Agent is a superb addition to the Valorant roster. Some, like Twitch sensation Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek, have overtly criticized her for being nothing however a ‘heal bot.’

Positive, Skye might need some scouting and a flash device at her disposal, within the type of “Guiding Mild” and “Trailblazer,” respectively, however Shroud doesn’t really feel that it’s sufficient to make her a viable possibility for solo queues.

Though she is “undoubtedly good,” the previous CS: GO professional mentioned: “I really feel like Breach continues to be higher. Like Breach is a greater model of Skye.”

Skye may be possibility in professional play, however she could be extra of a detriment for solo queue matches, he added.

“Valorant’s Skye is just not possibility for solo queue gamers”

Within the video, titled “My Ideas on Skye,” Shroud opened up in regards to the newest Agent.

He mentioned:

“Skye’s not an excellent PUB (public sport) character for me as a result of she depends on setting your group up. Being vocal for them, flashing for them. Working collectively. However PUBs by no means actually are like that. PUBs are extra so, particular person performances.” 

Solo queue matches within the decrease ranks hardly have any voice communication between teammates. The synergy is simply not there, and gamers normally go for particular person performs over coordinating with the remainder of the group.

The problem that Shroud feels Skye is having proper now’s one which Breach confronted earlier than the collection of buffs he acquired to his package. After Valorant’s official launch, he and Viper had been the two-least picked Brokers within the sport.

And after Breach acquired a good quantity of buffs to his Flashpoint, he’s lastly a viable choose in professional play and normal matchmaking.

Shroud continued:

“You possibly can’t actually make many particular person performs along with her. You possibly can’t flash for your self. You possibly can’t smoke for your self.”

“That may be the final time I play Skye. There’s no actual purpose for me to play her. Probably not my model.”

Judging by Shroud’s feedback, Skye’s package may want a couple of tweaks within the coming Valorant patches to make her extra user-friendly for individuals who should not have a pre-made squad to queue up with.
