Is it right or wrong that we choose agent Sage and use this agent to fight more fiercely than supporting our teammates in Valorant?
In Valorant, the Sentinel, also known as the Guardians, is a collection of agents with strengths in site defense and team support. These Sentinel-class agents include Sage, Cypher, Killjoy, and Chamber. The most obvious identification point in Guardian agents lies in the fact that their skills are all skills to slow, hold or stun to reduce the opponent’s attack speed.
It is because of such a skill set that most Valorant players implicitly assume that the Sentinels, especially Sage, must have the task of holding the spike, supporting their teammates and not shooting each other.
Most recently, a Valorant player complained that she didn’t like Sage pickers and never had spikes, didn’t use ults to revive teammates, kept shooting at each other and dying early.
This article, after being posted on the community, received a lot of comments after that. Some people agreed, some people disagreed and created a heated argument. Some people think this is Battle Sage, others say it’s because they like it. However, have we understood right or wrong about choosing Sage and using this agent to take the lead?
“I really hate people who go to pick sage and never take spike, don’t use until, just run up and peek the person first and die.”
Usually in the lower ranks in Valorant, players who don’t shoot well will play support positions, just like League of Legends. With Cypher and Killjoy, timing and setup are relatively difficult. Although Chamber is a Sentinel, this agent possesses a skill set that is almost the same as a Duelist skill. What about Sage, this girl has the ability to slow, build walls, heal and revive teammates, so Sage is the first choice. Sage players in the lower ranks will usually try to defend the site, live as long as possible to heal, revive teammates and most importantly place Spike.
But if you do not know, Sage has another nickname that Valorant players give her, which is Battle Sage. This Battle Sage phrase is used to describe Sage players who rarely support teammates, but instead have strong skills, shooting each other as strong as Duelist. Battle Sage players will constantly actively shoot each other, seek early kills, make the most of the “first-serve” philosophy, sometimes even resurrecting teammates and sacrificing them to save their lives. win. One of the true Battle Sages is the Valorant World Champion – cNed.
Going back to the complaint article of Valorant players, it is known that this girl once achieved the Immortal rating in the game – a relatively high rank compared to most players. But at such a high rank and still making this girl warm, it can be understood that she has met a Battle Sage that is not “prestige” enough.
