Vodafone Giants punished by Riot Games for bug abuse: Vodafone Giants have been punished by Riot Games for using a Cypher Cam exploit on Breeze in the EU VCT Stage Three: Challengers One open qualifier.
Vodafone Giants' Cypher set up his camera in such a position on the A-Bombsite of Breeze that he could see the A-main entrance but the enemy team couldn't until and unless they committed and pushed into the site. Vodafone Giants used this exploit for a total of six rounds out of the twelve defending rounds.
Riot Games mentioned in their ruling "Team Vodafone Giants has violated section 7.2.6 of the VALORANT Global Competition Policy and will receive a one-map loss applied to their next official VALORANT Champions Tour match".
Section 7.2.6 of the Global Competition Policy:
Intentionally using any in game bug to seek an advantage is exploiting and is prohibited. Exploiting includes acts such as making use of any game function that, in the Tournament Operator's sole judgement, is not functioning as intended and violates the design purpose of VALORANT. Team members may confidentially check with the referee at the beginning of a Competition to determine if a specific act would be considered Exploiting. Riot reserves the right to make an ex-post-facto determination of whether an exploit has occurred.
