Riot is being criticized for being too mechanical.
So far, in League of Legends in particular and eSports in general, there has never been a shortage of stories about the malicious behavior of a part of players, and affecting others. . However, Riot – the publisher of League of Legends does not have any really effective measures to solve this problem. And the toxicity from a part of League of Legends players still exists throughout the development length of this game.
League of Legends always has a lot of negative behavior from a part of players that Riot can’t handle thoroughly
Like the case of a recent female League of Legends player named Kim So-hyun. Specifically, this girl was playing League of Legends on live broadcast and the incident happened when she had a match lasting 3 hours. Accordingly, the person who created this match was none other than her teammates and two people on the opponent’s side.
So-hyun’s two teammates helped the two opponents to use 2 generals Nasus and Senna (names that can increase strength over time very well) to extremely high strength. Not to mention, every time So-hyun was about to surrender, they refused to let the match be extended. Moreover, these teammates also help the opponent hunt So-hyun by constantly revealing her location to the opponent.
Kim So-hyun and the match is not fun
However, after the match ended, the poor girl’s account was locked by Riot for 14 days. According to many comments made by the community, maybe because her kill stat was up to 121, she was reported to Riot by her teammates, and therefore, her account. has been punished.
And this girl was fined by Riot 14 days after the game even though she was a “victim”.
This incident made the League of Legends community extremely angry. Because, Riot’s processing system worked too mechanically, making a girl become a “victim” of a part of players with low awareness. Even the tools used to deal with negative behaviors in League of Legends have become a factor for these ignorant people to attack a girl.
At the moment, Riot has not yet commented on the incident. However, if not handled properly, this publisher may continue to lose trust in its own player community.
