During a stream on July 23, he said that according to them there is a perfect balance in the game, only the utility is working low, But the Operator is totally fine. He also stated that the players starting a fight with the Operator in the wrong way. By default, according to the previous design is you are walking around the corner and also OP is there, you die, this is not a problem and it’s not going to change anyway.

The Meta is enhancing the realized problem which needs to run Sage and Cypher in the time of neglecting the OP counters. Instead of nerfing the OP, there are other problems that need a solution. The problem is that when players are running a Reyna, or a Breach, or a Phoenix those who have the flash-like utility because the flash like utility is not strong enough compared to the featured gun in Valorant.
