Shroud does not believe that Riot Games should add content created

The 27-year-old retired professional shared his thoughts about community content in Valorant. Riot Games is famous for keeping things closer to their chest, as the studio believes in adding original content. Community content is not something the studio believes in, as the studio likes to protect its Intellectual Property.

Shroud also believes that the studio should not add community content into the game. A fan quizzed him about community content, and the streamer responded with his honest opinion.

” I don’t Valorant should do that. As much as I would love the skin that’s entering like dangerous territory. You know what I mean, because you can’t the second you add content creator skins, if you plan to only do it for one person, okay that’s fine like one or two people that’s fine but you have to take that stance to the grave. That’s what makes it so challenging like you. If you’re gonna give content creator skins, you give it to a couple of them and you take it to the grave”

Keeping that viewpoint insight, it would not make sense to add a community-created content weapon or character skins into the game. The studio keeps its stance consistent and avoids making this move, regardless of the external factors.
