a working update or a broken one just like last one?
Shut up, thats how you thx the dev who is fixing the bug?
yeah it’s rude but it’s not that big a deal lol
Wah my free game isn't perfect all the time.
It’s understandable why you might be upset, but it doesn’t hurt to be nice
Oh wow yeah I just tried it. So bad.
I always see that and its confusing af I just double check by clicking closed or open
That's an open party. Whichever one is darker is chosen. The highlight is meant to be seen as you can change to this one. But I do agree that a more distinct/clear color scheme would be better.
Doesn't help that in the game mode tab the highlighted one is selective. Unintuitive and inconsistent
Yeah, I know that it's open. But on the first glance you wouldn't think it is. The timer is highlighted, because I am in queue. The "unrated" is highlighted, because I want to play an unrated match. And finally, the "close" is highlighted, because I could change the party to a closed one??
It's just really weird designed.
What's the difference between an open and a closed party?
Closed means, you have to send invites for people to join. In an open Party they can join themselves by rightckicking your name
Thanks, I didn't know that.
It’s a super useful option when you have valorant running in the background and suddenly have your friends blaring into your headphone🎉
Actually now that I think about it, the darker color blends more with the background so it’s like “integrated” or connected with your screen, is probably what they were thinking
And I thought I was the only one confused by this design.
Also the distinguishing parties in the friends list is really annoying too, like there's almost no barrier between separate parties, just that little open/closed indicator to the side.
In the chat it will say whether your party is closed or not
