Up to now, Riot has always made efforts to solve the problem of game breaking in League of Legends. These actions include “feeding”, leaving mid-match or using obscene words to attack each other between gamers. In general, “game breaking” and toxicity are everywhere, but with a global game like League of Legends, this problem is even more complicated and difficult to solve. Not to mention, gamers always have many ways to “circumvent the rules” and Riot’s regulations and tools are also “given up”.
Riot always tries to improve the situation of toxic or “game-breaking” gamers.
But recently, Riot itself “helped” gamers when the “Quick Surrender” mode, which was only being tested in the PBE version, appeared right in the League of Legends rank. For those who don’t know, the “Quick Surrender” mode does not require all members to vote or 4 votes (if 1 person has exited the game) to surrender, but only needs 1 person to vote to surrender.
No one knows why the experimental “Quick Surrender” mode appears in the official client
There were gamers who immediately received the consequences
Therefore, it can be said that in just a short time, many places have recorded gamers competing to “break the game” with this tool. Forcing Riot to immediately lock the ranked mode when a player is simply dissatisfied with something, or doesn’t feel like playing right away, can affect all other players, both on our side and on the opponent’s side. .
Vandiril: “Rank mode is locked immediately, at least on the OCE server”
According to “bug saint” Vandiril shared, this error appeared briefly a while ago. However, at that time the incident was not really serious so Riot still let everything operate normally. This time, the incident was more serious and therefore, Riot was forced to take emergency measures in a short time. Some opinions from players also say that Riot may have to recalculate the entire Surrender mode. Among the popular MOBA games today, perhaps only League of Legends has many shortcomings in this Surrender function.
The League of Legends community is upset that Riot let such a serious error slip
Although it is unclear how Riot will handle or apply the “Quick Surrender” function in the future, it is clear that gamers’ reaction is not very positive. Riot will have to consider carefully because for toxic gamers or those who have previously intended to “break the game”, this is no different from a powerful tool for them to carry out their tricks.
