Scalability and Load Testing for VALORANT

When VALORANT was still early in development, we had high hopes that in the future we’d launch with high initial popularity. From the beginning, we prioritized scalability to make sure we could support the number of players we were hoping for. Once VALORANT entered full production, we began working in earnest on a load test framework to prove out our tech.

That’s how we grow and that’s how we get better.
