it was never finished to release in my eyes.
1 troll mode, unranked and ranked. not even dm or tdm
4 maps, at least 2 of them absolute garbage
new hero op as fuck, some old heroes useless
its just not ready lol
valorant is still in alpha tbh, wait for full release in 3 years
Only retards thought Valorant 'would kill CS'.
Also, Riot never said that Valorant would kill CS.
But, as a fanboy that plays CS since version 1.3, i have to be honest and say that Riot did a great fucking job on Valorant, because damn that shit is fun to play.
Unfortunelly, to enjoy playing Valorant you need to learn the differences between the characters, what each one of them can/can't do and shit... and people usually dont have the patience to learn new things nowadays... so yeah..
I can find competitive matches really fast at any hour on any day, and it shows that, at least on Brazil, theres a lot of people playing it.
Valorant and CS have totally different proposals, this "competition" that people created between both games shouldnt even exist.
Everyone knew it's never gonna happen. Nothing can kill CS atm.
I got platinum 1 first try screwing around with friends while we learnt how to play. It really is fun to play with each hero bringing different elements to the game so it doesn't get repetitive to quickly, I do expert this to change when a clear meta is formed. Interesting to see how riot continue this project.
Valorant has like 3 million daily users more than csgo btw
It is a new game.
Is like LOL and DOTA both will survive but the player and fan base of the older game will slowly decrease.
Who said it was going to kill CS?
And tbh the game is more enjoyable in PUG setting than CSGO will ever be just due to the fact that everyone has a role to play, they are forced roles that suit you, some are aggressive, some are support others have great utility, this combination there is just more coordination than the PUG system that CSGO offers.
As a pro game CSGO is more competitive and more enjoyable to watch, those who don't have a team or don't want to be in a team pugging in Valorant is more enjoyable.
My biggest gripe with the game is the maps, there are only 2 decent maps, decent but not great which is Bind and Ascent.
The gun system is much more balanced in CSGO and there is no catch up mechanics like SMG's.
If you die to SMG in Valorant you fucked up, very similar to CS1.6.
Also utility is much cleaner there is no one ways, there are no one way mollys it's all pretty clear which never exist in a competitive game like CSGO.
I was thinking a similar thing as someone who has been playing frequently. However, one thing I noticed is that Hiko still gets around 20k viewers just streaming Valorant. At this point most of the "hype" is gone, but unless I'm not remembering correctly, s1mple gets around 10k. Let's see if Hiko is on a constant downtrend. If he is, then I think Valorant will slowly become more irrelevant. However, if he doesn't, it's more likely that Valorant has a stronger casual playerbase than CSGO. As someone who has played Valorant a lot, I can definitely say it's way easier for bad players to play it and do well. Not saying it doesn't take any skill, but it's just a fact that in the current meta with dominating awpers and characters with abilities that almost guarantee your death, It wouldn't be a surprise if the players who quit CSGO for being too hard are sticking with Valorant.
The casual playerbase may be strong, but the competitive playerbase seems wayyyy smaller. It's kinda odd. The T1 X NSG tournament had very underwhelming viewer numbers. I think that Valorant is not really interesting to watch like CSGO and the UI is just god awful for observing. A lot of it has to do with the maps to be honest. The maps are, in short, garbage. Pretty much every map is just small choke-points. The gameplay mechanics themselves seem like they could work, but it's just not fun entering a site and getting hit with a barrage of abilities dulling your movements and blinding you. With better maps, the competitive scene will most likely grow, but right now it's not looking "great."
maps make the game so bad all maos are so generic and shit no open spaces just close bs. not a good game and way too easy
How does any game kill any game lol. But anyways, I would give a game some time to develop before making any judgement. Look at Siege, shitty launch but turned into one of the stronger esports. Valorant probably will continue to do well and outside of CSGOs tournaments the numbers for both are fairly close. CSGO - 41k Valorant- 65k as of 2am est.
The game would've been fun if the powers complemented the gunplay. Instead they're insanely overpowered and have pretty much an equal role in game to the guns if not more.
And the mechanics and level design are trash too. The movement feels awful, the levels are full of crap when they should be streamlined and optimized, the spray control is pure luck, and you move way too slowly.
the game isnt bad but i also feel like the hype around it is already dead
gunplay feels nice for example, and every weapon you can buy is viable, and the spike rush mode is a nice idea. dailies and weeklys add motivation to play. butttt:
- there are a lot of overpowered abilities in my opinion
- almost every map is shit
- and in my opinion it is not a good idea to push more and more agents to this game
flavor of the month, bye valonite
it killed csgo so hard that i almost got killed too, did you not see that?
Cheap Chinese csgo ripoff will kill csgo...
*surprised pikachu face*
It was meant to kill tier 2 CS.
i mean valorant is constantly over csgo when there are no tournaments and there have rarely been any serious tournaments in valorant. so i dont think we're allowed to complain yet. cuz even world of warcraft has more viewers than csgo on a wednesday and throughout the week.
Everytime i watch twitch valorant is over csgo in terms of views.
just wait for the game to be released in china. csgo will say good night, good bye and auf wiedersehen in terms of numbers.
after playing CS exclusivly since 2005, i kinda enjoy valorant more atm :D
I was 100% right that valorshit never kill CS. Because it looks shit. Boring maps 2.0 overwatch give it 2 years game death.
Rainbow six siege was the csgo killer
Pubg was the csgo killer
Valorant was the csgo killer
Every year a new csgo killer is born
Im waiting for 2021 csgo killer
Actually Valorant declined much in HK server, many players stop playing it, sometimes you can't find a match for over 10 minutes currently in rank.
VPN & Server error code problems are part of the problem, and it's just easily boring.
I'm not sure whether it will pop after it releases in China, but if the game only has these elements, it surely will not affect csgo in China.
new games must have champions with abilities. fucking hate it.
Valorant kill Counter Strike???
Hahahahahahahahhaha. Nothing can kill such a huge game.
Game is fine and all but the skins from it are dumb af the new dragon omegalul
Am I the only one person who never played this game?
Honestly worst part about this game will be Fortnite kids who got platinum or whatever and start talking down to you like they know more about FPS
Even killing enemies doesn’t feel so rewarding than in csgo
talked to some random ppl and they thought it was boring and nothing new, valorant is trying to fit into an oversaturated market for its genre. but i think it will be able to carve out somewhat of a playerbase when hype fully dies
only brain damaged people and people who cant play cs;go plays valorant. the community is cringe as hell. fortnite + lol + retard part of csgo community united in one big pile of shit
I didnt like new hero, i played before had some problem and stopped, new hero is included, and ofc typical riot style new hero needs sales so he does like everything alone than other heroes can do together
it's going pretty good. many high price online tournaments with t1 teams and pretty good twitch viewer count and player count overall and this shit is not even released in china yet.
No valve kill cs with new update
guns are boring and have no soul
movement is awkward af, you cant do cool ferrari peeks / jiggle peeking like in cs:go
its actually better to stay still and just tap aim, it kinda looks like how bots in CS:GO stop and shoot in small bursts while standing
the worst part when I started playing this game is the maps though.. ugh
