what a dumb comment. of course their job is a dream job, but why the fuck wouldn't they pick the better option for themselves lmao? Like yes, they are in an insanely good position, playing video games and getting a shitton of money for it, but if they choose to be in a better position, who the fuck can blame them?
It's about their future. CSGO is just a game, they don't have to stay "loyal" to this game at all, especially not to valve who doesn't seem to give a fuck.
The NA CSGO scene is currently dying ffs. The future of NA CS does not look bright AT ALL, meanwhile NA Valorant scene is looking really bright.
On top of that, Riot seems like a way more competent company than Valve. Waaaaay better communication with both the pro players and the player base, they seem to actually listen to feedback. Seems like they have less travel and overall just seems better for pro players.
And they can play from their home country.
I sadly disliked Valorant mechanics, but the rest is just everything I wish CS had.
