A final verdict has been reached on the alleged Valorant cheating accusations as Tier One Entertainment and RIOT Games announce that local streamer Mika Daime is innocent as of Friday evening, Philippine time.
The local streamer has been accused of cheating in the first-person shooter game after several of her clips have circulated in the Internet, with international players such as WARDELL and Player1 even weighing on the issue with their takes (serious or otherwise).
Since then, there has been a lot of posts and comments regarding Daime’s case, exhibiting both sides of the fence.
The heated (and sometimes out-of-hand) discussion regarding Valorant cheating has lead to multiple local Valorant groups putting a plug on any discussion regarding the matter.
A similar statement has already been posted by an account that is said to be linked to RIOT Games earlier this morning on Reddit, stating that Daime has been innocent of the accusations that have been hurled at her.
According to the official definition by RIOT Games, Valorant is a 5v5 tactical shooter matchup in which players plant or defuse the Spike in a one-life-per-round, first to 13 series. Players can choose Agents armed with adaptive, swift, and lethal abilities that will allow the player to create opportunities to complement their gunplay and impact the match in a very meaningful way.
