VALORANT’s executive producer claims that Riot is already working on fixing toxicity in the game

Riot is currently working on something to combat toxicity

VALORANT isn’t even a month old yet and players are already asking Riot to fix the overwhelming amount of toxicity that is prevalent in the game right now.

With the launch of the competitive ranked mode in VALORANT, toxicity has gone up to a whole new level. And streamers are facing more random stream sniping, random inting, abuse over voice chat as it has become a common occurrence in almost every other game.

Since the closed beta players were asking Riot if there was going to be any solution to these problems. Things were so bad during the closed beta that even VALORANT’s executive producer couldn’t play the game due to the harassment she faced online.

Riot is finally taking serious steps

Anna Donlon, VALORANT’s executive producer recently explained that they are already working to combat the toxicity that has become quite a commonplace in VALORANT. Combating online toxicity and harassment is always going to be a really delicate matter and needs to be handled correctly.

Both punishing online toxicity while keeping the fun aspect alive is always going to be a difficult aspect to balance correctly. Furthermore, ruining the fun factor in the process of removing toxicity can in fact affect the game in a negative way.

What kind of system Riot will introduce to mitigate online toxicity is still not as clear as of now. Although if it is automated like their anti-cheat solution that might be a positive or a negative depending on how good their system turns out to be. We will just have to wait and see what Riot is really planning to combat toxicity in their games.
