Riot Games Disabling All Chat in Patch 11.21

League of Legends

Riot Games is set to disable all chat in matchmade League of Legends queues in their upcoming patch 11.21 in response to the marked rise of verbal abuse this year.

“While /all chat can be the source of fun social interaction between teams, as well as some good-hearted banter, right now negative interactions outweigh the positives,” Riot said in an announcement posted on the League of Legends website. “We’ll evaluate the impact of this change through verbal abuse reports and penalty rates, as well as surveys and direct feedback from you all.”

“We’re aware that verbal abuse happens in team chat too, so disabling /all chat won’t get rid of abuse altogether,” Riot said. “But team chat also plays an important team coordination function, so the potential value it brings is much higher, even if it can also host some negative experiences.”

All chat will be the only communication feature disabled in Patch 11.21, which is set to arrive on October 20th.
