Fracture came to VLAORANT a year ago, but it hasn’t been able to settle in the players’ minds. Despite having novelties in terms of design, in most cases users do not value the playability of the map positively. For this reason, on August 27 Riot Games advanced that the map would undergo changes. Now the modifications have reached the Public Beta Environment (PBE), which will have more impact in the area of A than not in that of B.
As VALORANT Map DesEsports ExtrasLead Joe Lansford confirmed.Pearl Hogbash«, Fracture has never suffered a rework. However, the changes will have a major impact on how the map is played by A. Satellite will no longer have the rock in the center, but on the right side for players to pass through. drop it has also been opened up with a ramp and offering less cover. The A rope has also had an important modification: it will have a walkway that will open up more angles and allow you to see drop with greater depth.

In contrast, in B the modifications are minor. Riot Games has added a ramp to access Arcadian. As with all new skins that appear on PBE, none of them are confirmed until they are released on the official server. Anyway, in this case it is quite likely that they will be accepted since Fracure is, together with Breeze, one of the most hated maps by the community. The goals are to make A a more defensible place.
Over time, Riot Games has proven to have the necessary pulse to make changes to the maps when it is necessary or the community demands it. This has been the case with Pearl in patch 5.06.. The map based on Lisbon, Portugal, had good reviews but also some that needed improvement and the developer touched both A, and B and a half to improve the gaming experience.
