I'm not that standard CS:GO fan that will hate valorant for it's competitiveness within the esports scenario but as a player and follower of the pro scene for almost 5 years now, I like Valorant as a game overall, although I feel like Valorant still does not have enough quality to be compared to CS:GO as an FPS game. Lack of map depth, overuse of abilities (which I understand that some of the CS:GO players dislike, because in my opinion this type of fantasy is more suitable for a game like LoL rather than an FPS like CS or Valorant), lack diversity in the weaponry and mechanics, lack of third party features like community maps and the existence of a console, personal thing here but I think the game is a little bit too slow paced due to the footsteps being heard "all across the map". To reply to your comment, I feel like the valorant scene is more exciting for being too stacked, which is pretty predictable from the get go. Teams are still learning, adapting and improving on a daily basis and it will take probably many months for the scenario to stabilize, but I really hope the end of covid and the beginning of the lan era for Valorant really helps the game compete and be more on the level of quality where CS:GO stands on. Also when lans return I hope vlr.gg mixes the rankings instead of being separate into 2 regions and I hope TO's do something on the UI cause spectating a valorant game can be so so confusing regardless of how much playtime you have in the game. That said, still though, I think it's a good game and I personally like it, just wouldn't put it on the same level as CS:GO but then again it's a new game and the room to grow, considering Riot are managing it fairly well so far, is big.
