Competitive mode will be available soon after patch 0. VALORANT's competitive system is still in its early stages, and we plan to evolve it over time, but we have a core experience we wanted to share with you all in closed beta so that we can build and evolve the mode together. While we plan to keep Unrated mode always available, Competitive matchmaking may be disabled for short periods throughout the closed beta as we work to refine the mode and incorporate your feedback. Our system aims to solve some of the common pain points we've seen players experience with competitive modes and ranked systems.

Your MMR determines the opponents you play against and is unique for each game mode. Because the estimate represents a range of possible values, winning a game might not immediately increase your MMR in some cases, the point estimate might actually decrease to account for the additional data. Playing more games ultimately increases the accuracy of the estimate and provides data to show historical MMR trends.
