Riot data suggests 10 percent of LoL’s high Elo games have had cheaters in them

Riot Games’ anti-cheat software, Vanguard, is coming to League of Legends in the near future. While cheaters might seem like a rare occurrence at lower ranks, they’re frustratingly common in high-Elo games.

On April 11, Riot Games released a blog talking about Vanguard coming to League. In one section, the team highlights the number of cheaters at specific ranks since the beginning of 2022. It turns out that in the first half of 2023, more than 10 percent of Master games had a cheater in them.
