Valorant have issued an official statement through their Twitter handle which will excite the user base. The much anticipated ranked queues will be finally enabled by the developers of Valorant.
North America will be the first recipient of the update, with ranked matchmaking set to be rolled out within the next few minutes. The developers will carefully observe the effects of it and subsequently enable the same for European servers, if everything meets their standards.
The tweet though clarifies that they reserve the right to withdraw the ranked matchmaking feature at any given point of time.
This is the right way to go about things in my opinion. Since it’s a closed beta, this could just be a large experimental process and the developers could withdraw ranked matchmaking after seeing the response and gaining invaluable feedback from the users.
