1st May 2020 – 1am
As more and more players play Valorant beta everyday, many of them have plenty of time to practice and their competitive mind is in full swing. Don’t worry, it’s time! You’ll finally be able to tackle the ranked games and raise your rank!
Patch Notes 0.49 already implemented ranked games, but these were not yet activated.Riot Games has announced on Twitter the launch of competitive mode this evening (0.30am French time) for US severs and from 9:30am on 1st May for the European server if everything is fine for our American friends.
Good luck to you all!
In the next 30 minutes we’re going to turn ranked on in North America.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 30, 2020
If all goes well there, we’ll turn ranked on in Europe after the hotfix patch (so after 9:30AM CEST on May 1).
We also… reserve the right to turn off ranked at any time if things get weird.
