Raze has been a headache for many Valorant players since introduction so they can look forward to a brief pause without her. Meanwhile, Riot Games are taking a collective break.

Riot Games' issues with Raze persist despite the nerfs introduced in patch 1.05. Then again, the problems this time are not of balancing nature but rather a result of a glitch that appeared on August 4, 2020.

Namely, some situations can cause Raze's ult to be duped so she can actually fire two rockets. If you thought that hearing "Fire in the Hole!" was annoying before, wait until you hear it twice.

It is for this reason that Riot disabled the agent until the issue gets fixed. Now, when that might be, remains dubious as the team is taking a collective vacation in the week of August 10. Granted, there are five days left before it happens but some bugs can be persistent. Either way, enjoy the Raze-free experience until she gets fixed.

Back on the topic of Riot's vacation, it seems like the team was under the weather from being overworked. There is no doubt the difficulties caused by Covid-19 pandemic added to their strain and the devs will be taking a break in the week of August 10.

The break will apparently affect different games directly as their teams will speak with the players separately over the coming days. This applies to League of Legends, Valorant, Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics.
