The Valorant 1.02 patch that will finally give players at the wrong end of a righteous ass-kicking the opportunity to throw in the towel is going live today, but the ranked mode is going to have to wait just a wee bit longer. Riot said over the weekend that competitive play would be included up with the update, but tweeted earlier today that it will in fact be coming later.

Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like competitive will be too far behind. “Currently evaluating stability and tracking any issues with the patch as it goes live across different regions,” game director Joe Ziegler tweeted a few hours later. “Based on what we see we will turn on competitive tomorrow after all regions have the patch or later this week. Will update you later today.”
