Ranked Live in Europe & NA

Fri, May 1, 2020

After a successful EU roll out of the hotfix, Ranked is now live in EU & NA!

The VALORANT hotfix patch brought stability to servers, addressing a number of service issues and bugs. This allowed Riot Games developers to feel confident in rolling out ranked in NA first, then EU in the early morning hours of May 1st.

Looking for Ranked mode? Click the “Play” button at the top of the screen. Then click the “Competitive” tab that appears below.

Remember, to play Ranked matches you must meet the following requirements:

  • Complete 20 Unrated matches to unlock Competitive mode
  • Queue with up to 5-player parties, but must be within 2 ranks

The eight levels of rank, each divided into three tiers are: Iron, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Immortal, and the highest rank — VALORANT.
