However, the most exciting element is the opportunity for match replays to exist.

It allows teams to analyse scrims, professional matches and general gameplay to ensure that they are playing at their best.

With statistics galore, this is a great way for analysts and coaches to spot weaknesses and strengths within their teams.

What About Casual Valorant Players?

Whilst this is currently only for professional teams, there is the possibility for this to be included with casual players too.

John Knauss, the competitive data programs for esports at Riot Games stated...

"The VALORANT Data Portal is the first step in our shared vision for how we make official VALORANT data more broadly available, starting with our professional teams"

So, the future is looking bright for many players in the community who have wanted match replays for years.
