So, it turns out servers for many regions are down right now. Riot Ziegler tweeted out that Riot's working on a fix and will have things back online as soon as possible.
"We’re aware many regions are down at the current time. We’re fixing it as fast as possible. Hang tight will update you when we have a fix."
We'll pop an update in here as soon as we know more, stay tuned!
June 2nd SERVER ISSUES
Valorant's EU servers are down for emergency maintenance, while NA/LATAM/BR/AP are running into issues around game starts.
According to a tweet from Riot EU's servers should be up and running within the hour, so that's around 5:20pm BST.
No word on the dodgy game starts, but expect those to be fixed within an hour or so too.

Expect the servers to be online at this time, but they're going to be working overtime as players flood in. Hopefully they'll cope just fine, but don't be surprised if they experience a few hitches on the day.
A new map, plenty of tweaks, and a new agent called Reyna is arriving with its release. Keep an eye on the site for continued coverage!
May 21st Announcement
Riot announced it's officially launching Valorant on June 2nd.
This means the servers will be going down on May 28th and will come back online on June 2nd.
Riot hasn't announced details on exact timing just yet, but we'll update this page as soon as we know more.
Expect tonnes of new content to drop alongside its launch, so be sure to keep an eye on the site for continued Valorant coverage!

April 29th Announcement:
Valorant’s latest update is being split between EU and NA, which means both servers will be offline at times that shouldn’t impact the majority of players in those regions.
On May 1st, EU servers will be taken offline for 6 hours. Things will shut down from 3:30am CEST. The servers are scheduled to come back online at 9:30am CEST.
On April 30th, NA servers will be down from 4:30am PT. They will likely be back online by 10:00am PT.
Tomorrow were deploying a hotfix patch to address some exploits, fix two bugs, and revert the headshot sound.NAs patch hits April 30 @ 4:30AM PT, back up @ 10AM PT.EUs patch hits April 31 @ 3:30AM CEST, back up at 9:30AM CEST.If all goes well after this... maybe ranked.VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 30, 2020
We meant May 1 for EU. The letters are close together.VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 30, 2020
As it’s still in closed beta, the contents of the update are slim, but important. Here’s what’s changing:
- Fix exploits.
- Revert headshot sound.
- Fix two bugs.
It’s important to note that these small hotfixes aren’t indicative of the update cadence Valorant will be home to once it’s fully launched. There will likely be much larger content drops, fixes, and updates with a proper server maintenance schedule.
As soon as we hear any more maintenance or server news we’ll update this page immediately. Keep this page bookmarked for all the latest!
