The only time we ever saw tarik performing as good as he did was with Stewie afterwards it was good games now and again but no real star performances. That being said I think he needs to be IGL or 2nd caller in order to have the impact he had on cloud9 and early on in NRG/EG.
I never really tried VALORANT so I can't say how much skill is required although I do view it more as a retirement home for now until we see someone breakout and dominate the game who started with VALORANT and no other shooter. If he moves to VALORANT it's basically confirmed that he'll do that for 1 or 2 years and then move to streaming. BIG sadge
