Valorant will now flag dangerous behaviour in its finish of sport display in an try to curb toxicity.
A brand new replace has been launched for the sport, centered predominantly on modifications to the Pearl map.
But nestled within the patch notes is a social replace so as to add a “disruptive gameplay-based behaviour indicator”.
“We have launched a function that can present on the finish of sport display, which gamers have been detected for partaking in disruptive gameplay-based behaviour,” reads the replace.
“This has been added to the next sport modes: Unrated, Aggressive, Spike Rush, and Replication, with extra sport modes to observe within the close to future.”
It isn’t clear precisely what constitutes “disruptive gameplay-based behaviour”, be it toxicity in voice chat, going AFK throughout a match, or harassing one other participant.
Again in July, Riot started monitoring voice chat in North America to coach its language fashions. A assertion on the time famous: “Voice analysis throughout this era won’t be used for disruptive behaviour experiences.”
A beta launch of the voice analysis system was anticipated “later this 12 months”, so maybe this newest replace will tie in.
The replace additionally fixes a problem with KAY/O’s Zero/level, in addition to different bug fixes.
