Thanks to what appears to be a growing problem, Riot Games has announced that it will be increasing the penalties imposed on AFK players in VALORANT

In a tweet, the developer stated that the change would include longer queue restrictions for multiple rounds. However, they’ll also keep an eye out for situations that may have been caused by server instability. Anything that makes players think twice before putting the whole team in jeopardy will be a welcome development for fans.

Before the new change, AFK players received “a time penalty of increasing severity each time you’re determined to be missing in action.” It also included a countdown timer, so offending players know just how long they have to wait before they can play again. Hopefully, the new change will dissuade VALORANT players from going idle during matches without wrongfully punishing those with connection issues. 

VALORANT, Riot’s first-person tactical shooter, is currently in beta but will arrive in Summer 2020.
