As Riot Games gears up for the release of Valorant Episode 7 Act 1 with patch 7.0, players have encountered a “Competitive Queue Disabled” message. This article will clarify what this means and when the rank reset will take place.
Valorant Episode 7 Act 1, scheduled for July 27, promises a host of new features and changes. Among these are the introduction of a brand new agent and a fresh method to unlock them through Agent Recruitment Events. Additionally, Riot Games will debut a new currency, Kingdom Credits, and overhaul the progression system entirely.
However, ahead of this substantial update, Riot Games will disable the competitive queue and matchmaking. In simple terms, this means that players won’t be able to play the game until the release of the new patch. This pause in the gameplay is signified by the “Competitive Queue Disabled” message that has appeared for many players.
According to the June 27 update, the Valorant Competitive Queue is ending soon, urging players to maximize their game time before the rank resets. This temporary halt in the competitive queue is a precursor to the rank reset that will come with the introduction of patch 7.0.
When Will the Competitive Queue Be Back Up In Valorant?
The “Competitive Queue Disabled” message signifies the end of the current patch, i.e., 6.11, and the game will resume once the new patch 7.0 is released. The expected times for the game to resume are:
- Asia Pacific: 14:00 PDT
- Brazil: 6:00 PDT
- Europe: 20:00 PDT
- Korea: 14:00 PDT
- Latin America: 6:00 PDT
- North America: 6:00 PDT1.
Moreover, Valorant servers will undergo maintenance during this period, and players will not be able to log into the game until the release of patch 7.0.
Players can stay up-to-date with Valorant’s real-time server status to be informed as soon as the game resumes.
As we anticipate the exciting changes that Valorant Episode 7 Act 1 will bring, remember to stay tuned for updates and prepare for a refreshed gaming experience.
