Riot Games releases Competitive Policies and Rules for Valorant esports

Riot Games releases Competitive Policies and Rules for Valorant esports

In a recent blog post, Riot Games discussed the competitive policies and rules for VALORANT esports. In the blog post, Riot Games has outlined the rules and policies that all the competitors will be expected to agree and abide by.

The first version of VALORANT‘s Global Competition Policy covers everything from eligibility and roster requirements to competitive integrity. This version of competitive policies will serve as the cornerstones of VALORANT esports.

Global Competitive Policy

Riot's main aim is to avoid the vast majority of rule violations which can be prevented by writing clear rules and being responsive to teams and players who are seeking clarification.

As VALORANT esports continues to grow, Riot's goal is to institute the greatest possible clarity and transparency for the participants of the competitive ecosystem.

Alex Francois Head of Competitive Operations for Valorant Esports said, "To further supplement our competitive policies and ensure fair play, we’ve built a strong partnership with the VALORANT anti-cheat team."

Hence VALORANT‘s anti-cheat team will also review suspicious behavior during competitive events to identify any players potentially using unfair tactics.

Going forward, prior to participating in any Riot-sanctioned VALORANT competition, all players will be required to accept and agree to abide by the outlined rules and policies.

Riot creating its own uniform rulebook is an important step toward the health of VALORANT‘s competitive ecosystem and will avoid several unethical instances of match-fixing and exploits unlike the competitive CS:GO scene over the years.
