Vanguard Anti-Cheat Coming to League of Legends: What It Means for EXO and You

In the world of competitive online gaming, integrity and fairness are paramount. With the increasing sophistication of cheating methods, game developers are continually challenged to safeguard their games. Riot Games, a leader in the industry, is stepping up its game with the introduction of the Vanguard AC system to League of Legends (LoL).

Understanding Vanguard Anti-Cheat

Originally developed for Valorant, Riot Vanguard has earned a reputation as one of the most effective anti-cheat systems available. Its unique approach, combining a client that runs alongside the game and a kernel-mode driver, provides unparalleled defense against cheats. Created in-house by Riot, Vanguard prioritizes both game security and user privacy, undergoing rigorous testing and review by internal teams and external cybersecurity experts.

Vanguard’s implementation in League of Legends is a testament to its effectiveness in combating cheating.

Vanguard’s Implementation in League of Legends

After its success in Valorant, Vanguard is set to enhance the integrity of League of Legends. Although planned for release in Update 14.4, unexpected bugs have led to a slight delay. The testing phase revealed issues that Riot’s dedicated team is swiftly addressing. The new timeline schedules Vanguard’s debut in LoL for Patch 14.5, starting with the Philippines on March 6th. Success in this region will pave the way for broader implementation in subsequent patches.

The Future of EXO Software in League of Legends Post-Vanguard
