League of Legends developers discuss how to improve Behavioral Systems in the game – The dev team at Riot Games has introduced new champions, features, and updates in League of Legends. Yet, one department still remains quite lackluster and unaddressed, much to the chagrin of the League of Legends community. It is the improvement of the Behavioral Systems in the game. But it looks like the developers are finally willing to improve on it in 2022. Here are some of the steps that they are planning to take.
Address issues of the 95% of players
League of Legends receives a bad reputation because of the toxicity of the online players. But in reality, only 5% of the total player base is really toxic and disrespectful in the game. According to the developers, a majority of the reports that they receive (about 95%) are just the reaction to the tilted behavior of an average player.

League is a competitive team-based 5v5 game and it can become quite frustrating to play if your teammates are not playing properly. It can be seen more in solo ranked games as you get matched with random players. If you are at the receiving end of the tilted and disruptive behavior, it can ruin your game and experience. While there is no perfect way to solve this, the devs will try to build solutions that directly impact the players and create a stronger community together.
Appreciating positive player behavior
The League dev team has stated that Behavioral Systems is not only responsible to track and punish the bad behavior of players. But, it is also responsible to reward those players who respect others in their games. The Honor 2.0 system will receive updates and will provide players with rewards for their good in-game conduct. Players who reach Honor 5 will get a new special recall VFX and also an exclusive skin as a part of the End of Season rewards.
Champ Select report action
Many players start to become toxic right from the Champ Select stage when they do not get their favorite champion picks. The devs at Riot Games are planning to punish players according to their bad behavior during the Champ Select. More details about this will be revealed in one of the upcoming League of Legends patches.
Targeting Widespread Behaviors
The League dev team will also address problematic widespread behavior that has become common in the game. For example, improving the Verbal Abuse detection model. Verbal abuse is often the cause that leads to disruptive behavior inside a game.
From all these steps, we can see that the dev team at Riot Games is truly committed to improving the gameplay experience of League of Legends. They will bring in more changes in the Behavioral Systems by taking feedback from the player base community.
