Riot Games wants to fight toxicity in Valorant

Riot Games wants to fight toxicity in Valorant

Toxicity in video games is a recurring issue. Greenily — LoL and TFT UX Designer — has had a bitter experience with it while streaming Valorant. After that, Riot Games has announced that action will be taken to limit this.

Riot Games wants to fight toxicity in Valorant

It was during a live broadcast of Greenily — LoL and TFT UX Designer —  on Valorant that the controversy has started.  

In the video, Greenily is verbally abused by a male player who makes clearly inappropriate comments.

To solve this issue, Valorant allows players to mute one or more of their teammates during a match. However, it's obvious that no one should make such comments or have to ear that during a game. It should be noted that the voice chat is essential in every FPS to communicate with your teammates. Such actions prevent you from having fun while playing. On the Internet — as in real life — it's sadly common to encounter such behaviour. 

This situation forced a member of the Valorant development team, Anna Donlon, to react. She has declared that this situation was unacceptable and she has promised that a longer-term solution to this recurring issue is being investigated.

Even if the ideal solution seems difficult to conceive, other publishers have already put in place certain measures. Rainbow Six offers an automatic ban system based on report, while Apex Legends isn't based on voice chat, but rather on in-game commands.
