Riot Games’s competitive title is also plagued with teammates who go AFK mid game. These are usually smurf or blatant hackers, and in most cases just pure toxic players. The developers will have to counteract these issues, however, dealing with non responsive players might seem tricky. Although non communicative teammates dampen the ranked experience, they are not committing a serious crime. However, that does not change the fact that the absence of communication puts you at a serious disadvantage, often costing you the game.

Twitter reacts to TSM Myth down playing Valorant players

This tweet attracted a lot of comments from the community, as fans shared their experiences on the thread. No competitive title can ever work with mute teammates, lesser so, with toxic players. The Valorant community also highlighted various other issues that make ranked lobbies a serious headache for everyone involved.

Toxic behavior might be the most important issue that Riot needs to tackle in order to promote free flow of communication.

This might be because of aggressive players who never let other people talk. If this is the norm in the competitive titles, then newer players will not find much use for their communication devices.

Another reply pointed towards a rather common issue that female players within the community have to go through daily. Gamers either act abnormally when they encounter a female or some might scream random curse words at them. This will also come under the umbrella of toxicity that needs to be addressed at the earliest.

A recurring problem in the ranked games is that players don’t really want to work together. Instead, they prefer to critique each other in the worst possible manner.
