Valorant’s competitive mode from the closed beta didn’t make the cut. The omission left rank grinders disappointed. Now, there is official word that ranked mode will soon make its way into the tactical first-person shooter, for the first time since full release.
This challenge is finally being interceded by Riot, as ranked match-making is primed and scheduled to drop sometime next week for everyone within Valorant.
Hey everyone, It's been hectic, so I haven't had a lot of time to post. To answer the biggest question: rated (competitive mode) will likely be out some time next week. We're spending this week putting together that release and making sure it is good. =)— Ziegler (@RiotZiegler) June 15, 2020
Competitive Mode will unlock after you've played those 20 Unrated matches and you can start climbing the Valorant ranks. You can, however, continue to play in Unrated mode if you prefer, as this mode will always be available in Valorant. Competitive mode will be directly affected by the feedback of the players, so it is possible to make changes before (or after) the end of the closed beta.
