riot games are only good at marketing. their games appeal to the casual majority. they aren't good developers, never have been. their two biggest games are just taking valve's two biggest games and making them easier. the second riot gets the advantage over valve, if that ever happens and all that marketing pays off they will stop putting in any effort whatsoever and will just milk their games dry. For god's sake they can't even be bothered to put in a marketplace to make skins way cheaper like their competitor did 8 years ago. They are greedy scum just like literally any company tencent owns and that will show if they get the upper hand. Valve on the other hand actually cares about gaming, has made numerous 10/10s such as portal, half life, tf ect and are spearheading VR game development just because they love to innovate. while riot just copies them and doesn't even let you get access to all the characters and playstyles in their games for free. they wouldn't even be on the map if not for valve.

you don't get my point, valorant's appeal comes from features counter strike invented, features valve developed and riot just assembled together, whilst removing some of what makes cs harder like counter strafing and fixed horizontal recoil.

nobody cares dude. this is how society works: people copy and adapt good work made by others yes valorant is easier than cs, but I think that was the idea: it allows Riot to venture into younger audiences, and also people looking to have a lighter/faster experience like me. games end at 13 points, etc if anything, valve should start copying some stuff from riot now. valorant doesn't have BULLSHIT one-way-smokes for instance. I was never burnt by fire I can't see in valorant, teams can surrender, etc etc

yeah right people play valorant for the absence of one way smokes aswell as 13 round games and not because its just csgo shooting and movement mechanics on easy mode. (also, teams can surrender in csgo and you can see fire wtf are you talking about)

People always says It'll become massive once Riot introduce a franchise league, when in reality it's pretty much a double edge sword. It'll generate hype yes but it could kill T2 and lower scene if they don't handle it properly. Just see what happened to OWL.

they're currently destroying the scene of their region. NA always had a pretty weak scene but all the promising young players leaving the scene could really be the final nail in the coffin for them as soon as the big dogs need to make changes. maybe there is no NA scene left when they want to return. and most NA players are probably not even considered for EU/CIS scene because we got way too much talent on our own

Valve games = Quality 8/10 and minimum ads Riot Games = Quality 4/10 MILLIONS OF ADVERTISING ON THE MARKET! BILLIONS !!! (and the goods are shit) Dota is harder and more interesting lol, but because of China and Korea, more players are playing lol. Lol advertise everywhere! On TV, on the Internet, and even on banners on the road. Where is Dota advertised? = once a year at the international, that's it! People will eat your shit if it's everywhere! Valorant is a shitty game and will never beat online cs (which has a SOURSE engine - which is older than me) If Valve advertised their products the way Riot does, Riot would go broke END

There are some players that feel they aren't going anywhere on cs go, losing on qualifications and struggling to reach the higher paid tournaments. They know, Valorant is similar in a lot of things to CS, the bomb, the 5v5, etc, so naturally, with their game sense and overall ability to play fps, they'll try Valorant because maybe there they will win, and reach those tournaments that on CS they couldn't. Scream is a good example. They're not switching because the game is better, because it's not. They're just trying to make some money while the competitive scene is still easy. At least for now.

We played a lot of Valorant when it was released up to the last Update, i made it up to Immortal 3 with Cypher but i never was 100% confident with the Aim and Recoil ... i mean even after making 3 Oneshots i totally missed the 4th and I never knew WHY ... its way too random, even the Devs said that the Aim is actually broken. The Sniper was absolutly OP, they Quadruple Nerfed it now. Anyway, everyone i ever played Valorant with is back at CS again, me too. *And the worst is you cant play 4:3 streched .. it wont stretch : (* At the moment we just play Valorant for fun when the Lobby wont get filled in CS or were too tired, but i like to watch some Pro Plays from time to time ... there are some nais Clips on HLTV

This 30k pm is a misleading bs. A lot of the orgs, even Jason lake himself said that it's bs and the regular valorant pros aren't making anything even close to that. It's been reported by several sources that "SOME" valorant pros and not everyone ( keyword is some) are earning 30k pm. Only the very big name popular guys like wardell, nitro etc are earning that much. Compare that to what good t1 ( liquid, furia, eg guys not even talking account of Eu salaries) pros earn in cs, it's more or about the same. The reason these unsuccessful pros are switching is because it's easy money for them and they get to make something out their flopped career.

Problem with valorant is that after playing it for 2months you’ve done everything the game can offer, I can’t learn anything, you don’t need to use your brain at all.. I’ve played counter strike since beta in 1999 and I still learn every game I play In to this day. That’s why CS is the dominant FPS, you are always having to think, learn and improve.

There is too much sci-fi action going on, just like fortknight and overwatch. I watched one clip on youtube of 2 minutes from that game and that was enough for a unsub. Good kids game but won't really steal public from CS. I think the valorant jumpers prays to be the next fortknight heroes, as i understand that game is pretty big still on the players 15 and under.
