A new VALUING Today’s blog post gave fans an overview of the Agents introduced in 2021, information on the changes they can expect in the first half of 2022, and cryptic clues about the next Agent.
The past year has been a big one for VALUING. Fans were introduced to Yoru, Astra, KAY / O, and Chamber, each with a unique set of abilities and place in the meta. Some Agents like Astra have become Dominant Agents, while others like Yoru need an update. Patch 3.0 also significantly changed the VALUING economy, and other agents have become great choices on specific maps, like Breach on Fracture.
The short 2021 VALUING The review gave fans a great look at the highlights of 2021, and the rest of the article offers a gripping look at what’s to come in 2022.
VALUING players can expect several changes for Agents in the first six months of 2022. The blog post acknowledges that Agent Balance has been on the back burner from previous episodes since patch 3.0, but that will change in the new year. The developers have reassessed their workflow and their team and changed their priorities until 2022.
These changes mean that players will see multiple agent updates in the first six months of the year. The team will also focus on solving balance issues faster than before. While Riot hasn’t revealed any upcoming changes, fans can expect more information before they go live.
The end of the blog post also has more information on the upcoming VALUING agent. The final message begins with “my friends” in Filipino, alluding to the nationality of the next agent. Next year will begin with the new agent who “[outpaces] the rest of the roster, shocking the competition and sliding straight into the fight.
This information doesn’t officially reveal the next agent, but it does provide cryptic clues to their abilities. The “shocking” treat could mean they’ll have an electricity-based kit, and “slipping right into the fight” could mean another duelist is on the way. The message ends with another Filipino phrase meaning “thank you very much”. Fans will likely learn more about this agent in early 2022.
