Valorant became the most trending and the FOTM game ever since its closed beta release, it was very fun and casual to play with your friends up until Riot Games released the ranked/competitive mode.
Ever since the release of the ranked mode, everyone started getting competitive and a lot of egos were on the line, specially after the new changes in the valorant ranked system. And we all have this group of friends who just aren't on the same level, and will probably drag us down if we play competitive with them in Valorant. We have to avoid them and appear offline to them so we can climb.
So a lot of people were asking how do we appear offline? how to avoid playing with my friends without actually losing them for life. So we had to take a look into it and figured a way to appear fully offline in Valorant so you can successfully ignore this Iron stuck friend and climb to diamond rank in Valorant.
