is cracking down hard
on noxious player attitudes and actions on League of Legends'
public beta environment (PBE) server. The studio admits that it has not done enough to enforce player behavior guidelines on the server. Riot also says that this ends now.
"Our take-away message today is quite simple," the studio posted
. "The PBE has zero tolerance for toxicity, and change is coming."
The studio says that the PBE is a premium server that should function under higher standards, and as such the devs are working on ways above and beyond the norm to enforce and improve player behaviors as well as hold players accountable for their actions. One of the new features is an automatic system that will deliver bans to so-called toxic players, starting with 167 such bans today.
