Riot Games has banned several Valorant closed beta account sellers and botters to free up codes for fans. The developer announced the news on Twitter, which was met with a lot of praise and appreciation.
We've banned a pile of VALORANT closed beta account sellers and botters to free up more entitlements. Tracking more. Don't buy accounts, you might lose them!— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 9, 2020
Within a couple of hours of launch, the Valorant closed beta attracted 1.5 million viewers on Twitch, which is a good indication of how popular the game is. However, this also includes account sellers and bots who would have had to join the streams to get their hands on closed beta codes. Twitch entitlements were temporarily halted after day one to enable the developer to address the issues found so far.
Day 1 of Closed Beta has been incredible but humbling as we scale our servers. For now, we have to pause stream drops until tomorrow morning (PT). We'll let you know as soon as they're back. We hear your questions and concerns about CB access and will clarify as soon as we can.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 8, 2020
With Riot thinning the herd, it means more fans will get the chance the join the closed beta once Twitch entitlements return. Valorant’s closed beta will run for several months, so even if you don’t get in soon, there’s still quite a bit of time left to do so.
