**UPDATE**

So, it appears there is going to be a delay in Riot turning on ranked mode in Valorant for a bit. The company announced on Twitter that there are some issues that puts competitive at risk, so they're holding off until they can get a fix for it.

Original Story

Okay Valorant players, Riot has heard you and would like to request that you quit messaging them about Competitive Mode, because it's being implemented in patch 1.02. The patch implements various changes to several agents, weapons, and the game map in addition to Competitive Mode.

When made available, Competitive Mode will feature a few changes made since Beta, including updated rank iconography, a new top rank title, and an expanded skill disparity range for playing with friends. The top rank is "Radiant". There's also a new surrender option, for when things get a bit too hairy.

Players will also see a change in tagging that improves their chance of escape if they're near cover and there have also been changes to the game's menu. Full patch notes for the update have been posted on the game's site.

Just we needed another "Competitive" game. Another Competitive game to rot peoples brains. And add more toxicity to the world yay!

I think I read a tweet today where they say they found a bug that negatively affects Competitive so they delayed it again.
