Valorant Players Accept Letting Nature Take Its Course Against Cheaters

Cheating is a significant issue in VALORANT. Players often encounter cheaters in their games, and it can be frustrating to deal with. However, players agree that it's acceptable to keep playing ranked games even if you have a cheater on your team. Reporting the suspicious activity is the right thing to do, but it's not your responsibility to punish cheaters by surrendering or intentionally throwing the game. Riot Games is responsible for catching cheaters and punishing them for violating the game's competitive integrity.

Players who intentionally throw games to teach cheaters a lesson risk being reported and losing RR, which is not worth it. Instead, it's best to let nature run its course and trust that unlucky situations will balance out. For instance, having an AFK teammate in another game could be seen as a disadvantage that cancels out the advantage of having a cheater on your team. Sometimes it works in your favor, and other times it works against you. In the end, it should all even out, unless you're exceptionally unlucky.

Most players agree that reporting the cheater and continuing to play is the best course of action. It's not your fault for being randomly put onto a team with a cheater unless you're in a party with them. Surrendering or throwing the game to make things right is not necessary, and it's on Riot Games to do something about cheaters in their game.

In conclusion, players should report suspicious activity and continue playing ranked games even if they have a cheater on their team. It's not their responsibility to punish cheaters, and intentionally throwing games can result in losing RR and being reported. Riot Games is responsible for catching cheaters and maintaining the game's competitive integrity.
