Valorant has been storing text messages from players for a long time in order to be able to take action against toxic behavior. With a new, updated user agreement, the same will soon apply to everything you say about the In-game voice chat of you give. The new feature will soon be limited to North America as a beta and will also be rolled out to the rest of the world at a later date.
Riot will save voice chat in the future. If a report about toxic behavior is then received, the Valorant developer can check the data and take action against the players. In addition, the delinquent should receive a copy of the recordings. After that, the Data deleted become.
The developers also promise that no one actively listens to voice chats if no message has been received. If you still feel uncomfortable, you have the option of deactivating the voice chat in Valorant.
Why is it necessary?
The developers explain in one Blog postwhy this step is being taken. Accordingly, Riot is constantly looking for effective ways to “monitor disruptive behavior” and “improve the game for everyone who plays it.”
According to this, toxic players are a “great pain” for many players. In addition to a simple and direct way to report such players, evidence is also essential to ensure that innocents are not punished.
So far, the function is only planned in Valorant. Other riot games such as League of Legends initially get by without the new system. However, the updated user agreement also allows corresponding changes there.
