Valorant Game Changers Champion Accuses Riot of ‘Ignoring’ Major Concerns
Acclaimed Valorant Game Changers, a program that rewards content creators for covering the game, Champion Oak_Sao has alleged that Riot Games is “ignoring” major concerns from the program. Oak_Sao shared their dissatisfaction with the ongoing situation on the official Valorant subreddit, highlighting their lack of communication with Riot.
“It seems that Riot just simply ignore us and our concerns with it not improving, it seems that most of the GC [Game Changers] are just quiet and scared to speak,” Oak_Sao wrote. “They ban us for the stupidest notifications and never reply, I even sent a ticket alleging that they were not keeping their word and I got no answer.”
In a separate post, Oak_Sao also accused Riot of “pushing” users to spend money on microtransactions to be rewarded with “very scarce content.” This claim comes shortly after Riot released the latest Battle Pass with exclusive Riot skins that players must pay to unlock.
Riot responded to the claims, noting that they had addressed those concerns in the past. “We’ve had an ongoing dialogue with the GCs over the course of the past year and we recently shared some of the changes we’re making with the GCs before they went live in the game,” Riot wrote. “We understand that there are always areas where we can improve and we will continue to do so – alongside the GCs – to make sure we’re on the same page.”
Despite Riot’s response, Oak_Sao remained skeptical of their claims. “They just don’t seem to care, just because they ’feel’ like they’re doing the job is not enough,” Oak_Sao wrote. In the wake of this controversy, fans are left to wonder whether or not Riot will actually address these “major concerns” in the future.
