Valorant now reports bad behavior after each match

Valorant will now report bad behavior in its endgame screen to try to limit toxicity.

A new update has been released for the game, focusing primarily on changes to the Pearl map.

Still, tucked away in the patch notes is a social update to add a “gameplay-based disruptive behavior indicator.”

Riot Games available with Xbox Game Pass

“We’ve introduced a feature that will display at the end of the game screen which players have been detected for engaging in gameplay-based disruptive behavior,” the update reads.

“This has been added to the following game modes: Unranked, Competitive, Spike Rush and Replicate, with more game modes to follow in the near future.”

It’s unclear exactly what constitutes “disruptive gameplay-based behavior,” whether it’s toxicity in voice chat, going AFK during a match, or harassing another player.

In July, Riot began monitoring voice chat in North America to train its language models. A statement at the time read: “Voice rating during this time will not be used for reports of disruptive behavior.”

A beta launch of the voice rating system was planned “later this year”, so perhaps this latest update will tie in.

The update also fixes an issue with KAY/O zero/point, along with other bug fixes.
