6. March 2024 by Never

Ahead of the Masters of Madrid tournament, Riot Games has rolled out Patch 8.04 for Valorant, with the most significant updates focusing on Premier improvements.

In anticipation of the Masters of Madrid tournament, Riot Games’ tactical shooter will undergo some changes on the official server. This Tuesday, Valorant’s developer released the patch notes for 8.04, highlighting changes to Premier. Additionally, a crucial error in one of KAY/O’s abilities has been corrected, and we’re here to delve into the details.

Valorant Patch 8.04 Highlights

Starting this Tuesday, Riot’s FPS will enter the second act of Episode 8. As we all know, this entails the reset of rank ratings, the introduction of a new Battle Pass, among other things. However, that’s not all, as the new act also comes with an update. For this reason, here at CodigoEsports, we’ll go over the Valorant 8.04 patch notes, focusing on Premier improvements.


  • Teams can form and start playing at any time during the phase.
  • Provisional divisions are displayed immediately after creating the team, updated whenever the roster or zone changes, and locked in once the team plays its first match of the phase.
  • Teams can change zones at any time before playing their first match of the phase.
  • Weekly matches now have rematch protection, ensuring you won’t face the same team twice in a single phase (unless waiting for an extended period).
  • You can only play 2 matches per week, so no hopping from one team to another as a free agent within the same week.
  • Rankings show playoff results once they begin and are locked in 48 hours after they end.


  • Fixed certain known cases where KAY/O’s Zero/Point (E) ability would occasionally convey inaccurate information.
  • Fixed an issue where, if revived by Sage’s Resurrection (X), you would be slightly pushed at the end of the animation.
  • Fixed an error where bullets could penetrate the corners of Sage’s Barrier Orb (C).
