The game has a ranking system that requires players to rank up over time. The process can be frustrating because it involves a lot of grinding, depending on the player. While this is a fun part of engaging with the title, some get frustrated and eventually disappointed with the game.
Disappointment might lead players to permanently delete their account. There can also be other reasons for not liking the game that might drive an individual to the same conclusion.
Players must note that a Riot Games account is used to connect to all titles in the catalog. Hence, deleting the Valorant account means players have to delete their Riot Games account as well. This can be done by submitting an official request to the publisher through their support page.
