Hiding account levels, skins via the rotating shop again? Riot answers
According to ask valorant - AUG. 27, Riot Games answered important questions we will cover in this article about hiding account levels feature like how they did in League of Legends, the second one is about releasing skins again via the rotating shop.
Will you ever release skins again via the rotating shop?
Joe Lee, Revenue Lead replied:
“There's always a lot of discussion around VALORANT's rotating shop, but we made a key strategy change about a year ago when we released Sakura in the rotating store for the first time. Many of you loved the aesthetic and were rabid to acquire it.
We originally planned to release almost half of our skins via the rotating shop, but seeing the hype around Sakura, we wanted to make sure that all of you had access to a skin line when it was released. So, we turned all of our rotating releases into featured releases after that.
Yes, the rotating store still exists, but all of you have equal access to new skins at the launch window (when demand for that skin is at its highest).
Finally, this isn't to say that we will never have skin lines that are introduced exclusively in the rotating store. There are some exciting ways in which it could make sense for a skin line to be released that way, but those will be few and far between.”
Will you make it, so we can hide account levels?
Naoise Creaven, the Senior Producer, answered :
“We’ve seen the feedback on account levels sometimes used as fuel to be toxic to another player (be it their rank-to-level ratio, or something else). We hear you, and we're working on it right now (along with some other minor improvements to Account Leveling). It'll take a couple of patches to wrap development and release the change, but we intend that those of you who don't wish to share your Account Level can obscure it.”
