Riot Says No To League of Legends Third Party Mods

By   /   May 3, 2014

Riot Games, the creators of free to play MOBA League of Legends have revealed their stance on 3rd party mods such as Curse Voice. In a recently released statement by Riot Sargonas, the company has made it clear that while they want the users to be able to enjoy the competitive experience, any such mods which alter the gameplay in any way will not be tolerated.

Under this new policy which can be seen here on the official forums :

“No software should interfere with the League of Legends player experience between when you press “Play” and the end of game screen.”

One such software is Curse Voice, a free voice chat client for gaming. On the outside Curse Voice seems to be totally harmless but the fact that your personal information can be pulled using this software and then sold to advertising companies speaks volumes about the harmful side of it.

Under this new policy, two elements of Curse Voice, Automated Timer and Automated Voice Calls are not allowed because of the unfiltered and thus untraceable access they provide to other users via voice chat. Obviously Riot has no control over such a thing if it ends up being misused, creating a negative player experience.

The policy is still being amended which will be followed by a TOU update in order to notify all the users of the change.
