Firstly, the game launched in Brazil, North America and Latam. After some hours of launching, Players faced a lot of problems.

And most importantly in online games, connection problem is a major issue and no one wants to face this problem, but in Valorant this happened. Riot realized the situation of the players and tweeted that they are investigating the problems and trying to solve it as soon as possible.

The shutting down problems are also there in Europe for low maintenance. Valorant tweeted that they are trying to solve the issue with instability and will be back as soon as possible. In Asia Pacific regions and South East Asia servers were bought for maintenance to avoid these circumstances. Also, besides these technical solutions players also faced in-game problems, like during closed beta period many players had purchased Valorant points, which is not available after the official launch. Because of these players are getting frustrated for the purchases of Valorant points.
In Twitter, Valorant is facing many criticisms for these problems of server down. Many people told that this game is not ready now for playing. Now Riot Games are under lots of pressure but they are trying to overcome and solve the issues as soon as possible.
Battle Pass also crashing:
With the first episode ‘IGNITION’ Act-1, Valorant launched the first battleground pass. For the newly launched ten chapters in Valorant developers are under pressure. Players who purchased the premium pass with $10 USD, they are not receiving any rewards in-game after the progress.
We are aware of and looking into an issue where players are missing VP they purchased during Closed Beta.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) June 2, 2020
The main objective behind the battle pass is to attract the players by giving the players something new in the game to help. But now the rewards are not being given out, players are getting frustrated and want to leave the game. Valorant tweeted that they are trying to fix these problems but Asia-Pacific regions are still facing the problems.
Richard Lewis added a Tweet that the issue the game is getting wrecked on Metacritic. Currently, the game is on 3.4 for user reviews. He was not expecting Valorant will face these problems after the successful closed beta period and after the praises that the game received earlier in the beta period.
The Valorant team is trying to solve the problems, but as the game has launched tomorrow, players are giving red signal. The players are getting frustrated and giving a lot of hatred. If this continue, for many times the game will never able to survive in this competition with other ruling games. But one thing we have to keep in mind that unlike other games just within few months of beta period, Riot Games’ successfully launched the game globally. Hopefully, the problems that the players are facing will be solve by Riot Games as soon as possible.
