Chamber’s worldwide decide price has taken a bit of a success at VALORANT Champions 2022 following the Patch 4.09 nerfs, however he’s nonetheless the most picked agent of the match. He and Fade, who’s seen a slight enhance as nicely, are the solely agents to be picked in over 50 % of maps throughout the group stage, in response to VLR.gg.

Across 49 group stage maps, Chamber and Fade had respective decide charges of 67 and 54 %. Chamber was a popular decide on Haven, Breeze, Icebox, and Pearl, and was picked on each single Fracture recreation. Fade noticed distinguished utilization on Haven, Ascent, Bind, and Pearl however was largely ignored on Fracture, Icebox, and particularly Breeze.

Chamber continues to be an extremely viable agent regardless of nerfs to Trademark and Rendezvous, plus an elevated price to Headhunter bullets. He is the go-to agent for getting opening kills, Trademark continues to be a great tool for catching rotators even after nerfs, and the Tour De Force continues to be one the most impactful ultimates in the recreation. On maps the place his decide price is low like Ascent and Bind, it’s not even as a result of he’s not viable, however simply because agents like KAY/O and Jett on Ascent, and Raze and Brimstone on Bind, are extra helpful.

There’s a reasonably balanced break up between initiator utilization, no less than when in comparison with severely divided classes like duelist and sentinel. But Fade is shortly changing into a number one favourite. The Prowler and Haunt skills are glorious recon skills and Seize is nice for defuse denial and establishing Molotov abilites or Raze utility.

It continues to be a wrestle for duelists not named Jett or Raze to get any display screen time. Neon, at the very least, is the second most picked agent on Fracture however is essentially ignored throughout the relaxation of the map pool. Yoru, Reyna, and Phoenix are the first, second, and third least-picked agents of the group stage, with solely a handful of one-off appearances between the three of them.

With the match shifting to its playoffs, we are able to anticipate the high decide charges to get even increased and the decrease ones to get even decrease, with groups much less more likely to experiment and take dangers with agent comps. Don’t be shocked to see Chamber’s playoff decide price climb over 70 %, or for one of the down-in-the-dumps duelists to be utterly ignored.

The VCT Champions 2022 playoffs received underway at present and conclude with the grand ultimate on Sunday, Sept. 18.
