What is a “thrifty” in Valorant?

Each video game has its own set of nomenclatures/words based on its universe, and Valorant is no different. While most Valorant vocabulary, like Spike, Defusal, or ADS, is self-explanatory, few words require a detailed introduction and explanation. One such regularly used word is Thrifty or Thrifty Round. A thrifty round is a situation in Valorant where a particular team has won against the other team by spending less credit/money compared to their overall purchase value.

For example, suppose there are two teams – A & B. If team A made an overall purchase of 20K in one round, and team B still manages to beat them by spending less than 20K . Then that particular round will be considered a Thrifty round for Team B. Remember that this is just a title and you will not receive any additional credit for the accomplishment.
