Every gamer is well aware of the new buzz in town; Valorant. With only a few days in the mix, the game has already attracted hordes of beta testers, and hackers too! It seems everyone is eager to lay hands on it in all forms, which is unsurprising considering how Riot Games have been rallying up support for their latest project and bragging about its hack-proof software design too! From the looks of things so far, I daresay they may have bragged a little too soon.
So far, Valorant has opened up the space for testing the game live and its definitely taking on well. Already, a bunch of the popular video gamers and streamers like Shroud have joined in the fun to get a taste. A member of Riot's anti-fraud experts' team, Paul Chamberlain, who is actually the team's boss, was quick to respond to the report of the hacker. In a twitter post, he confirmed that his team had hoped to postpone such worries to a later date. The hacker was quickly banned and Paul promised that more bans are on the way for any player who makes use of any Valorant hacks. He had this to say;
“Well it sucks, but today we had to ban our first cheater (and it looks like more bans are on the horizon). I was hoping for a little more time before this fight kicked off but we’re in it now and we’re ready.” It seems the team has failed to deliver on its promise to fix the valorant wallhack issue. Of course, they will probably handle it soon enough but, initially, Riot had promised to put an end to it at the launch of the game. These Valorant cheats tend to give players unfair advantages, making the whole playing field uneven, and I mean this almost literally! Such disadvantages can easily deter new players and affect the repute of the game in the long run. Riot, however, still has a good chance to rectify this and players seem eager to try it out despite these hiccups. Let's hope the interest lasts!
