I'm playing CS since 2008 (if you DM me I'll link my steam profile) and I'm still playing. I just admit that Valorant have better future than CS because Valve doesn't give a shit about CS. Even operations in CS are shit, boring missions.
Tick 64 servers on MM (ofc I don't play MM but many people do), shit ping on servers (Valorant has polish server, 2 german servers etc, you can pick whatever you want for better ping, I have 2x lower ping and 2x higher tickrate on MM on Valorant. Way better ranking system. If you're good enough you can get to Radiant/high Immortal rank and play MM with pros, that's really fun. In CS you have to play Faceit and even then many pros just play FPL/team practice and not regular faceits)
I just don't get why HLTV people try to say Valorant is shit game, Valorant is dying etc. You all are so insecure about CS or what? I'm playing Valorant sometimes when I just want to chill out and it's nice game. Aiming and movement is worse than in CS but it's still fun and more relaxed.
I don't get all that hate, probably virgin faceit lvl 7 kids
