Instant Penalties for Toxic Valorant Players
Now, tons of players will have to reconsider before chatting. After all, the game has an extreme problem with toxic players. Although Riot has put plenty of countermeasures, it still hasn’t stopped since the game launched. Now, the moderators plan to stop any toxicity in their tracks immediately.
Riot will now track toxic Valorant players in real time with their new secret technology. They will evaluate ALL text messages in Valorant, which will lead to fair but firm punishments. Yet, we don’t know how they can counter this in the voice communication system.
Today, Valorant will begin a global rollout of our Real-Time Text Evaluation and intervention system. Up until recently, the system which mutes players in voice and text chat who send disruptive text messages in the game was tested in NA regions only.Riot Games
Toxic Valorant players will have a hard time fighting this enforcement. After all, they will receive penalties DURING a game and might get muted or chat restricted for what they said. Riot also says that this system will encourage healthy communication instead of another verbal abuse session.

Should Riot release a list of words or should they improve the list to consider the context? Riot did say that they will continue to gather universal data and force players to be careful of what they say. It may end up with more toxic Valorant players using voice comms than usual.
