Things have got so bad in League of Legends' public chat rooms that Riot is shutting them down, the developer has announced. They're "rife" with RP sellers, scammers and Elo boost spam, Riot said in a statement published on the League of Legends forum.
RP is Riot Points, one of two in-game currencies. Elo boost spam refers to having someone boost your Elo rating, a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players. There's also the issue of moderation. These chat rooms - and even private chat rooms and community hubs - lack moderation tools beyond the ignore button, Riot pointed out.
So, Riot is disabling the public chat rooms "until they're useful and accessible". In the meantime, private chat rooms and messaging will remain available to everyone, and Riot will work on improvements to chat and chat rooms "aimed at enhancing usability and adding new functionality".
It plans to create a set of tools that lets players and the developers create, own and manage "different kinds of social environments. The public chat rooms will be brought back "as soon as we can", Riot said. Meanwhile, Riot outlined its goal for chat in League of Legends. It wants to create a persistent hangout for the friends you play the multiplayer online battle arena game with. Riot has long battled problems with the millions strong League of Legends community, which has a League of legends public chat rooms for the "toxic behaviour" it mentioned in the statement on chat.
The free-to-play MOBA, which pits two teams of five players head-to-head in competitive multiplayer matches, is often criticised for the behaviour of its gargantuan player base, despite Riot's best efforts to improve the situation. Last year it released a video calling on players to employ sportsmanlike behaviour - and released statistics to show it's in their best interest.
