Valorant players have come across the ‘Queue Disabled’ error, but such an issue is rather common as closed beta made available for online multiplayer games are usually full of bugs and crashes. Riot‘s latest IP game is no stranger to this either.
Ever since the release of the closed beta in April, Valorant has managed to become one of the most popular tactical FPS in the world. Therefore, it can be rather annoying for players to have to repeatedly encounter errors. Still, besides the more common error codes, there is a particular issue reported, which is the queue being disabled.
What Causes the Valorant Queue Disabled Issue?
There are two main factors that cause this issue. One is the player’s connectivity, and the other involves Riot and whether the developers are performing server maintenance. Another scenario is that the gaming studio is in the process of uploading a new patch and bug fixes and doesn’t allow any player online while the update rolls out.
If the issue is caused from your side, there are a few things you can do to fix it. First of all, quit the game and restart the client. If the error persists, try restarting your PC, as well as your Internet router. If this method did not work, check whether a new patch is out. Finally, if neither one of those solutions function, try running the game as an administrator.
If the issue comes from Valorant servers that are down, you will have to wait for a few hours before being able to play again. The chances are that the developers are working on either the server or are uploading some balance changes and implement bug fixes into the game.
The queue being disabled, therefore, has to do with one of those factors. You’ll probably keep encountering this issue often because the game is still in beta stages, and Riot has been changing things in the game a lot.
