Valorant Act 3 ‘Icebox’ Update Bug Players Can’t Enter The Queue

Recently, VALORANT released the Act 3 update to introduce the brand new ‘Icebox’ map. Other than that, the Riot finally launched the Middle East and North African servers, including dedicated servers for India.

However, ever since the update went live, players aren’t able to enter matches in Valorant because of a bug.

Valorant players were extremely excited for ACT 3; unfortunately, the new update came with several bugs. After installing the 1.6GB update, players are not able to enter the queue.

Apparently, the ‘Party not Ready‘ error is popping up every time players are clicking on the Start Queue option, which is incredibly frustrating. In case you’re wondering, this problem is persistent in all the Valorant game modes, whether it is Deathmatch or Competitive.

What’s even worse is that players can’t even play custom matches. That’s because the Custom game mode is temporarily disabled. So, you could say that after the Act 3 update, Valorant is currently unplayable.

As of now, it’s hard to tell if players from some specific regions are facing this problem or the issue is common for players around the world.

The good news is that Valorant is working on the issue, however, we don’t know how long will it take to get rid of this bug.

“Due to issues we’ve temporarily disabled multiple queues. We’re working on resolving this as soon as possible,” says Valorant in its current server status.

For now, all we can do is wait for the developers to solve this issue. In case you come across any different bug after the ACT 3 update, do let us know in the comments below.
