VALORANT Observers Told Off For Zooming In On Agents' Butts

VALORANT Observers Told Off For Zooming In On Agents' Butts

We all know Omen and Brimstone are stacking junk in the trunk when it comes to VALORANT, but do we really need to get a thirst fix in professional matches? Hmm, arguably we do, but not according to the development and coordination team behind the scenes, as they've cracked down on observers who have continued the joke of collecting crotch shots in official broadcasts.

During any breaks in play, including tactical timeouts or even buy-in phases, what are the observers supposed to be looking at? How many shots of Bind's crusty walls can we expect to see without going crazy? Instead, the personalities behind the cameras have had an ongoing joke with the analysts and casters by panning in on agents' derrières, but have since been told off.

VALORANT Observers Won't Be Snapping Agents' Butts Again

Melanie "mel" Hoi-San Man is one of the most well-known observers in VALORANT and CS:GO, especially across the European and North American regions, recently taking control of the VCT 2022 EMEA Challengers 1 and Game Changers Series 2 events. Despite her success though, someone from Riot Games has told her to calm down on the butt vids.

In a recent Reddit AMA, the observer said, "I haven’t technically gotten into trouble for the agents’ butts during timeouts. But I have been told to avoid it in the future. Honestly, I’m stupid, and I shouldn’t have even started it."

Observing is a tough balance though, according to mel, who tries to add a bit of humour to the competitive games when not juggling ten different players' perspectives. 

 

"Being an observer is about being a good video editor. You have to show the right things at the right moments and not make it seem boring," she continued. 

For the flair in the future, we may get many more snaps of the surrounding areas and some of the Easter egg sloths on Bind. But this slight telling off from Riot won't stop mel finding innovative ways of observing, as she's identified the more tactical games as an area where her observing could be improved, especially as the action explodes into life.

"I would say tactical T1 gameplay with slow rounds and fast executes are hard to observe for different reasons," she said. "If you observe a tactical round slow to fast execute, you're able to see cause and effect. It's more structured, where entries are actually entry-ing, and supports are actually supporting. However, if this becomes a 5v5 retake situation, it's GG LOL."

Mel is to continue her record of impressive observing throughout the 2022 calendar, although if you're hoping for some more horny-on-main butt zooms, you may want to tune into another stream, as it won't be mel who is preserving your perversions anymore.
