Riot have banned nearly 9000 Valorant cheaters

How many Valorant cheaters does it take to change a light bulb? Just one Phoenix, and he'll do it in a flash. Haha. But no, let's be serious. Riot have dropped the ban hammer on 8873 cheaters in their new guns 'n' wizards FPS, and say "this banwave is still only the beginning".

As you may know by now, Riot's new tactical FPS, Valorant, has an anti-cheat system that's come under fire over the last few weeks for allegedly being a bit invasive.
