In Valorant, AFK even just one round means that your team will be at a disadvantage not only in that round but also in the following rounds.
One thing is quite certain when playing Valorant, that you or some of your teammates will sometimes have to afk for some reason. This is completely understandable and understandable because everyone has different lives and needs outside of the game. However, when prompted by AFK constantly or too often, many people will respond with the attitude of “only AFK one round, nothing to stress”, or use the “mantra” “Chill bro” for the purpose of ironic contrary to those reminders.
If you are the type of person who thinks like that, today, Tin Game Channel will explain why AFK one round affects more than just each round!
Being AFK for “just one round bro” doesn’t effect just one round, bro. from VALORANT
First, you need to distinguish that FPS is completely different from MOBA games in all aspects. If AFK in MOBA is about you being a few minutes ahead of your opponent, you and your teammates can limit the fight without being limited in time in many different ways. Then for FPS games things don’t work like that. AFK means that your team has to compete with a limited number of people and has a limited time.
When you “AFK a round” in Valorant, you give your opponent a billion advantages in terms of money and play, and it not only affects that round but will snowball into the following rounds. For example, when the whole team is having a key round, if you lose, you will have to eco in the next round and you accidentally AFK in that round, when you come back, you will be the owner of the money, while Teammates must be eco. This creates an inconsistency in the way the team spends and it is difficult to control the game.
Or another example is being ahead of the opponent and subjective AFK. Let’s say the team is leading 9-3 and you decide to AFK in the green round. This will cause your team to lose a series of 3 rounds, including bonuses instead of 2 rounds as before. And the score will be shortened very quickly to 9-6. Not to mention the other mental effects when you accidentally apply it to teammates during AFK and lose unnecessary rounds.
In short, as Mo mentioned, AFK for a force majeure reason is inevitable when playing Valorant. However, the important thing here is how you communicate with your teammates. If you really need to get away from the computer to do something, apologize first and show sincerity, then try to get back into the game as quickly as possible rather than using statements like “Only AFK one round, why stress?”. Naturally, AFK even for just 30 seconds makes you the wrong person first!
