Valorant Drop Exploitation Addressed By Twitch, Guidelines Updated
Riot Game’s upcoming shooter Valorant is a hot topic at the moment and there is a lot of fans itching at the chance to get into the beta. With keys frequently dropping from Twitch streamers, many fans are flocking to various channels in the hopes of receiving a key for themselves. Unfortunately, it seems that some streamers are attempting to take advantage of the situation and are using the Valorant drops as an exploit to increase their view count.
Jumping on the bandwagon is all fine and good, especially when it comes to gaining views as a streamer. Unfortunately, some streamers have begun to use VOD streams of Valorant as a way of gaining views by marking them as “live.” While this does increase a viewer’s chance of receiving a key, Twitch has claimed this method of farming views “harms the integrity” of the Drops program. An update has since been made to the “Spams, Scams, and Other Malicious Content” portion of the platform’s Community Guidelines to now prohibit “Cheating a Twitch rewards system” – whether that’s the Drops program or the channel points systems.
