Riot Looking to Prevent Harassment in VALORANT

A tweet from Riot Greenlilly showing an incident where the League of Legends UX designer was harassed in a VALORANT match for being female inspired a response from colleague Anna Donlon executive producer on Riot's upcoming first-person shooter (thanks VG247). Anna says they are looking into long-term solutions to create a safer environment where such things don't happen:
Gross, this is creepy as hell. This is why I can't solo. I'm so sorry. We're absolutely looking into long-term solutions for making it safe to play VALORANT - even solo queue!

I watched the clip... such a bizarre world we live in.

Riot has created a game in which it encourages violent execution of human-like characters with firearms for competitive sport. And that's acceptable.

LOL are you serious? I've never heard of anyone being an anti cartoon violence advocate on a games site before. Are you worried cartoon characters might get hurt in real life? What about bugs bunny cartoons is that animal abuse?


Yeah I watched the clip too. She isn't being harassed for being female, as they try to claim. She was being hit on by a minor. Sexism was not involved, so I don't know why they are framing it that way.

So you're saying the minor would be treating her the same way were she a male? Ok.

So you're saying the woman would be reacting the same way were the minor a female? Ok.
