I can't create a team in the new 'competitive' tab.

So recently the competitive tab was introduced, and my friend made a team, but for some reason was unable to invite me. Confused, I tried to make my own team when this error message appeared: Unable to create a team. Check the service status and try again later if this keeps occuring. I'm level 44 and unranked.
