Following the update, several players have flooded Reddit. The users have complained about not being able to login. On logging in, a dialogue box appears, “Unable to access game – You don’t have permission to play this game.” A Riot Games representative commented, “Working on this. Should be fixed momentarily,” however, users still appear to be facing the hurdle.
After his initial comment, the representative assured that the issue was fixed. Although, after his assurance, players were able to login, but, they are getting stuck on loading screen. 0.49 patch has for sure shipped in some problems for Valorant players.
