title iconVALORANT 5 stacks are out of control as Bronze players are allowed to play Immortal

A Bronze 3 player was given access to a game mixed with Immortals and Diamonds in a VALORANT queue of five stacks.

Red Han "it hasn't" Nguyen, a professional player for CLG, posted a picture of their ranked game, asking how a Bronze player was allowed in the lobby. Their team was comprised of two Immortal players and three Diamond players, but the screenshot of their game has not been posted to Twitter. Against them were four Immortals and one standout Bronze player. 

“HOW IS THERE BRONZE??????????????? RIOT?????” It's not han said.

The Twitter users who commented below it weren't han's post argued back and forth if the Bronze player was Bronze or not. In the end, it was VALORANT's free rein on those looking to play in five-stacks that created the possibility of a Bronze player in an Immortal game. 

VALORANT released patch 3.10 in November 2021, which allowed players to five-stack in competitive regardless of their ranking. With this update, players of all ranks could play together without restrictions. Through these games, the amount of Rank Rating earned varied depending on the ranks of the players and the players on the opposing team. 

Known as "Phuc," the Bronze 3 Chamber made it through the game full of Immortals with six kills and 18 deaths. Triple negative is not an impressive stat by any means, but most Bronze players would be more than happy with six kills against most pros.Triple negative is not an impressive stat by any means, but most Bronze players would be more than happy with six kills against most pros.

If an Immortal queue contains a Bronze player, questions may arise regarding whether or not VALORANT should limit the difference between ranks when playing together.
