Riot Games ‘League of Legends’ Player Behavior System
The developer of the hit multiplayer online battle arena or also known as MOBA, Riot Games has revealed that changes are coming to the player behavior system of ‘League of Legends’.
According to a report by game radar, Riot Games’ Behavioral Systems Product Manager Hana Dinh herself has posted an update regarding the new approach that “League of Legends” will follow.
Riot Games’ product manager went on to say that Riot Games is now “changing its approach” to countering toxic behavior from its players. In turn, this should “have a direct impact” on players’ experience of its games, as well as the subsequent strengthening of their communities.
On top of that, the Product Manager for Behavioral Systems acknowledged that his players have been “disappointed with the lack of progress made in Behavioral Systems over the past few years.”
Despite this, Dinh echoes the clamor of their players, noting that the behavioral system at play is key.
Therefore, the Riot product manager further explained that this is why the developers of “League of Legends” are introducing a new approach this year, which seeks to provide a solution to bad player behavior.
