Riot Games Offers to Revert Recent AFK Bans in Valorant
Valorant suffered from server instability issues earlier this week and many players have been banned despite Riot Games being at fault. Riot Games posted on its social media account that players who have been incorrectly banned due to the recent server outage can request their bans to be reverted. Players can submit tickets at the official Riot Games support portal to get their bans reverted if they are eligible. Reversals are applicable if you were genuinely affected by the server outages as accounts are likely to be manually reviewed when putting in ban appeals. Here is how you can submit a ticket and get your ban reversed by Riot Games.
How to get your ban reversed in Valorant
Riot Games issued an update stating, “if your games were impacted by the recent server outages, please contact player support to see if you can have your AFK penalties reverted.” Players will be eligible for the ban reversals only due to the recent server outages and intentional inactivity-related bans will not be entertained.
