Riot To Record Valorant Voice Chat To Root Out Toxic Players

Talk about taking drastic measures. Riot Games, the studio behind League of Legends, will start recording voice chat in its hit multiplayer online shooter Valorant for moderation purposes.

If you want to opt out of being recorded, you will have to not use the voice chat in the game. Here’s the company’s official statement:

“We know disruptive behaviour using our voice chat is a concern for a lot of players, and we’re committed to addressing it more effectively.

In order for us to take action against players who use voice comms to harass others, use hate speech, or otherwise disrupt your experience, we need to know what those players are saying.”

I can’t imagine why Riot would go through such Orwellian lengths & short-term solutions to curb voice chat. Oh right: its games (and others like Dota 2) attract the worst of people due to their low ceiling of entry (they’re F2P). Exhibit #A, out of many, many more.

It’s insane, yes, but opting out of voice chat in a co-op game like Valorant that demands coordination will be a detriment. But so far, the response from players has been positive:

So unless you know a better way to weed out toxic players via voice chat recording, Riot Games is going through with this move. It’s their game, and they have cultivated this sort of toxicity since the LoL days, so now it’s just them doing drastic clean-up. Better late than never, I suppose.
