Valorant Streamer Calls for Permanent Bans After Receiving Sexual Assault Threats

In a recent incident that has sparked outrage within the gaming community, a Twitch streamer shared a disturbing clip from a Valorant match where a teammate made a sexually threatening comment towards her. The streamer, known as Morgan, is now urging Riot Games to implement stricter measures to safeguard players from such toxic behavior in voice chats.

Morgan’s call to action is not just for temporary suspensions but for permanent hardware bans to effectively deter this kind of misconduct. She expressed her frustration by stating, “Nothing will ever stop these men from acting this way until hardware bans go into play. They should never be able to play the game again”. This statement highlights the severity of the issue and the need for a zero-tolerance approach to ensure a safe gaming environment.

The situation was further exacerbated when Morgan revealed that she had received an in-game penalty for leaving the match after the incident occurred. This has led to other content creators and players joining her in demanding that Riot Games hold individuals accountable for their actions.

Riot Games has previously taken steps to “combat disruptive behavior” in Valorant, which includes recording players’ voice communications during matches as a measure to identify and address toxicity. However, Morgan’s experience and the clip she shared indicate that threats and sexism are still rampant in the game’s voice chat, raising questions about the effectiveness of Riot’s current strategies.

As of the latest reports, Riot Games has not issued a response to the post. The gaming community is watching closely, waiting to see how the company will handle this situation and what actions will be taken to protect players from similar threats in the future
