Today is the second wave of Twitch drops for closed beta access to the new competitive first-person shooter from VALORANT. Due to the high volume of people, there are some server issues and errors preventing people from getting into the game.
VALORANT is temporarily pausing drops to closed beta due to server issues. Their official Twitter says people will still be eligible to get access from watching, but the distribution will resume later.
This morning at 8:00 AM EST, viewers who watch Twitch streamers with drops enabled have a shot at getting access to the closed beta. Riot Games is supposedly giving access to between 75,000 and 100,000 more people today.
We’ll keep you updated on the “Drops” situation from VALORANT as we find out more.
Update: The VALORANT team deployed a fix for the problems and will begin distributing drops again once they’re confident the fix worked.
