This was bound to happen sooner or later since most players I’ve seen on either League of Legends or Dota 2 gain faster profanity skills than any other game-wise skills. Thankfully, Riot Games shares the same vision and wants to keep League of Legends a fun and welcoming place.
The developer wants to make an automatic world-wide banning system for players who use verbal harassment in the game. The system is said to have rolled out for the European Union, but should the tests prove to be successful, it will roll out in the rest of the regions soon enough.
The system works by sending notification cars to players who have used verbal harassment in matches, providing an evidence of the latter and an appropriate punishment that will take effect. The player can be punished in two ways, with either a two-week ban or a permanent ban, after exiting the match. It takes only 15 minutes after the match ends for the system to register the verbal harassment and deliver the ban.
Riot states that the player behaviour team is looking over all verbal harassments being reported and if the test goes as planned, the system will be available worldwide shortly. But this is not all that it brings. The new system will also keep players who reported others up to date with the process status and rewards players for positive gameplay. Personally, if the system gets rid of all annoying players out there, it might even tempt me to join the MOBA community. How about you? What are your thoughts?
