Valorant any good?
CIS S1MPLE_TOP1_2021 
How is it to be playing Valorant after CS:GO? I might switch for a few weeks cause I'm tired of cheaters and trollers in mm and faceit won't let me create an account

good for casual playing with your friends, but gets boring after playing for too long imo

He is right however, as I said million times in this forum already, Valorant has so much better netcode. The maps though are not that good (the 2 new ones are much better) and I haven't played it much lately after the economy patch, before that the economy seemed "whatever" since after 2 rounds everyone had money all the time. It's a good game, but so is CS.

it's a lot easier to troll especially as solo as you can't kick players but people rarely do, cheaters in valorant are very rare at my level but they are also very rare at my level in CSGO so I wouldn't know, definitely harder to cheat in valorant though, a lot more AFKers since penalties are very weak EDIT: should mention that you also can't choose which maps to play so you can play some pretty shit maps often

my faceit games -> get a nice lucky headshot through smoke, or win an unexpected clutch on a crucial round. Suddenly random ass no-name accounts with 100-200 hours simply become better than NEO in his prime, knowing every position (even when I change spots/angles almost every round) Hitting incredible opening hs with a pixel peek. Wow! 1337 gamer ! it's simple, they think I'm cheating and they toggle to win. It's sad af and Valve doesn't give a shit. Inb4 "get good" I am good, it's why I constantly get cheated on by shithead losers.

Game is slow, fights tend to be "I peek and I kill or die" where in CS there's a lot of "mini" encounters" and ways to engage a fight, peek or bait the shot. Physics are boring, slow crouch, slow peek, slow fire rate of weapons, you cant be dirty like in CS with the recoil and control it / spray transfer. Killing someone is either aiming at the head, fire 2-3 shots, strafe, repeat or with spells. Spells are a good addition, it hads variety and tactics. There's a lot of innovative stuff to do with them. It's a bit more tactical than CSGO in pugs. All in all it's a poor FPS but a decent game.

well no idea how thats even possible cuz u literally cant compare the cs of 2013 to valorant now. cs barely changed at all during the years and it didnt get "harder" in any way, it was always easy to get into but extremely hard to master. the only difference is the growth in the average skill level, and it will happen to valorant too in 2-3 years but it wont change the fundamentals, which are valorant = made to be easy

2021-07-22 17:13
I just played it for the first time yesterday and I couldn't stop...played probably 10 games in a row It's super fun, basically csgo but with different agents so you can keep switching every map based on what and how you feel like playing (entry, support, info, firepower...) Also maps are first to 13 rounds which is great because it takes like 30-35 minutes instead of 45-50 like csgo + economy is better, you can half buy 1 round then full buy next round all the time, no need for full eco

It is like downgrading your overall game overall. A top skillful CSGO guy will be a top Valorant player in no time. A top Valorant player will take a long time before he reach that level in CSGO , if ever. Valorant is the casual version of CSGO in everything. Easier to execute, easier to smoke, easier to flash, easier to navigate thru maps, easier to hit headshots, easier to be effective at all fronts. So if you are a low skilled player you might find Valorant more "fun" since youll feel like you doing more and being more effective.

People usually having more fun in games they feel they doing more. Those games are called CASUAL or CASUAL friendly for a reason. Valorant is taking CSGO and making it casual friendly.

1.6 really took more skill and it was the consensus of everyone at that time.

I can tell you the only reason CSGO is harder than cs1.6, the players average skill level has increased dramatically since back then, otherwise mechanically the game is a casual version of CS.

I guess the only thing I like about Valorant is how Radiant rank is like the top 1000 players at a time. It'd be cool for Valve to implement a similar ranking system that is more dynamic, but considering the state of MM, hahahahahahahahah. MM is literally HVH at this point, Valve should be fucking ashamed what they've done. "Woooohooo skins yeah!! money money money!!!! wooo hooo! Oh wait, you mean there's consequences for selling our souls for $$$$$? WAIT HOLD ON!"

valorant is no better if you are tired of cheaters/trollers. its matchmaking works on mmr and when you que for a game its like a lottery where you have a 50% chance to get a good teammates or what you basically mentioned earlier so sometimes its really hard becouse of the people who plays this game :/ But the game itself is easier than cs and for me personally more enjoyable, maybe it will work for you as well

Recently Riot has oriented the game more to gunplay, how? They have reduced the number of skills per round (for example an agent could previously launch three flashes one after another, now they can only two and with a second or two to cast) and they have released an agent who has abilities to block enemy abilities

id say trolls in mm are just as common cs player since 2012, switched to valorant in early 2020, gotta say it's a really fun game. a lot more variability in how you can play due to being able to choose different agents which adds a different element than cs. i'd definitely give it a shot- a lot of people on hltv are closed-minded and just shittalk the game because cs is the best competitive FPS ever (true) and tie their egos to it, so props to you for being open-minded

Valorant is filled with smurfs as much as CS is filled with cheaters lmfao but for real I climbed to Plat 3 solo queue before I stopped playing and in my experience, people give up very early in Valorant which is a mood killer when the matches are already so short. Toxicity is also extremely high in Europe usually from Jett players who instantly lock into the character. From Iron-Plat1 it's filled with smurfs (which they try combat with their hidden mmr system) and anything after that everyone pretty much has a similar level of aim because of the hitboxes so it's not that big of a problem, smurfs still exist after that but with team effort you can still win since solo carrying is hard in Valorant. Cheating is almost none existent, but there are probably undetected private cheats that barely anybody uses since they would cost hundreds per month so you should be good in that department.

"anything after that everyone pretty much has a similar level of aim because of the hitboxes" wtf are you talkin bout You say diamond has the same aim as radiant? XD Why are they not going pro? Of course there is huge difference in terms of aim (reflex, spray, overal gun control) even on pro level, thats why some pros are top 1 and some are top 200. In Valorant you have to master your abilities, yes. Aimining has lower skill ceiling than in CS, yes. But it is definitely something you need to master and its not 'easy' like many people say

I've played on Immortal accounts, I can say from experience that I had almost no trouble out aiming immortal players and I'm only Plat 1 this act. There isn't that much of a noticeable difference in aiming itself. High ranking immortal to Radiant I can say definitely have better aim in general but I'd say more in terms of reflex and consistency rather than aim itself.

Solo experience very bad. Low ranks no info/many people without mics. Higher ranks people start to talk but mostly angry turkish people. Info is poor. Overall game is pretty fun, a bit slower than CS tho. Sometimes can feel clunky but mastering your agent allow you to do some crazy outplays and I find that fun.

You clearly don't know how to make a game and you don't know the history of your favorite game either, CS was a Quake mod (Activision game), Valve just copied that mod and created a new game, the same did with dota underlords, copied a mod from Dota without paying anything to the creator (who then went to Epic Games). Valorant dont have as decisive a skill as Overwatch and neither does a firing system like the CS. If you think it is a copy, then all the FPS are copies of Doom.

It's worth to try, but for me it was very boring, due to abilites you're attached to one specific role, the hitboxes are larger, maps are simpler and smaller than cs maps. But overall, it was nice.

2021-07-22 18:37
I don't know about other ranks but soloq around high plat / diamond is a toxic experience most games. It goes something like this, eastern european or turkish dude instalocks duelist, manages 8 frags in a 20 round game, complains about teammates non stop and shouts about how he'll be reporting everyone. Playing with a group of friends is pretty fun though in small doses, but it isn't CS.

One thing for sure, Riot cares more for their game than Valve

Pretty boring, also strafing is too fucking slow. Ak 1/3 times doesn't reset accuracy between bursts. Running and gunning sometimes isn't punished for no apparent reason. Fun 2 tap bots coming from League of Legends/kids but the more you play the game starts feeling like a cheap ripoff.
