As a result of the discovery that Chrysania was providing commercial boosting services, she will be suspended for four months. In a statement, Riot stated that the player intended to use an online marketplace to sell the boosting services and profited while violating a number of Valorant rules.
For years, Riot has had strict rules against boosting, and it has previously banned professional players who were found to be engaging in matchmaking abuse. Following her participation in such activities, Sophia “Slaze” Ramirez was expelled from Valorant Game Changers and suspended from the team for three months earlier in September.
Why has Chrysania been suspended by Riot Games
This was revealed by Riot Games in an official statement: “Chrysania participated in creating a commercial boosting service that would facilitate financial arrangements between customers of the boosting service and a group of players in order to boost the MMR of the customers’ account. Chrysania planned to promote the commercial boosting service using a Singapore based selling application that is used to market a range of goods and services across Singapore and Eastern Asia.”
Chrysania’s actions are in violation of Section 7 of Valorant’s terms of service, which states that any activity intended to elevate an account’s status or rank may result in disciplinary action being taken against the account. MMR (Matchmaking Rating) boosting is prohibited by Section 7.2.9 of the Valorant Global Competition Policy, and players are not permitted to enter into a financial arrangement in order to increase the MMR of a Riot ID.
In the end, Riot Games found Chrysania guilty, and she will be barred from competing in Valorant events for a period of four months. In addition, he will be unable to join a team until his suspension is completed.
What is “boosting” in Valorant?
The following are the four situations in which boosting is considered in Valorant:
- When a player offers access to their Riot ID, the player’s account’s MMR will be increased by the player.
- In order to increase the MMR of the account holder, a player must gain access to a Riot ID.
- When a player enters into a financial agreement with another player, the two of them will queue together in order to increase the MMR of one of their accounts.
- In Valorant, a player who repeatedly queues with another player who has been identified as an active cheater is considered to be a cheater.
Even the acquisition of services from boosters can result in suspensions, and this type of behavior is strictly prohibited. Riot Games strongly condemns such behavior, and players are advised to refrain from providing or acquiring boosting services.
