too much magic shit n shit
I played, I used jett and it was entertaining, more than cs, but I got an error that I didn't solve and I left it
Higher skill floor in Valorant. Everytime you outplay someone, they can counter it with a running dog, flash going through the wall, an ultimate that will literally put you in a cocoon and you can't do anything about it or one of the other 1000 abilities.
In CS, when you you outplay someone, they are usually dead. It just feels more fair being in gun fights. Also, the random spray in Valorant feels ass.
I appreciate the different agents and their designs though and how they have different personalities.
looks and feels like first person shooter world of warcraft
when valorant was in development I was really excited, little did I know they were gonna add all this magic and spells bullshit
I like both. I don’t really play CS anymore, I just 5 stack with friends on Val. I think the biggest point in Val’s favor is how complex it is. There is always something new to learn, even on agent’s you’ve played a hundred hours on, there’s numerous ways to combine agent abilities into new strategies, or to counter strat with them, etc.
Because game is trash for kids. I played for a week or so and it was bad. I would rather play overwatch if i want to play with some abilities. Much better and fun game
main reason: it gets boring in the long run cuz repetitive , restricted abt everything , doesnt have mods , no community servers
cs is skill based everyone's on a level playing field. valorant is not it is champion based.
dont like the art style
dont like core game mechanics
dont like the pro scene
dont like the community
dont like the maps
its pretty simple
fun to play only for 2-3 games
played for a month, got radiant rank and left lol
The abilities are low skill, annoying and visually disrupting.
Ragdolls feel like they are gliding on ice. The peeking is weird if you have 40+ ping and the opponent 5-10, because it feels like playing on 150 ping in csgo, you barely see the player swinging and you are dead instantly, same with holding corners, you are cleared before you even see the player.
I havent played it since 2022
because the game has like that kind of spells. I prefer the classic mode like CS.
partly because the characters seem made to attract a child audience.
Also because I don't think I can play cs and another fps at the same time, I play other games, rpg, adventure, etc, but when I want to play some fps, I mostly play CS
I don't like shooters with hero abilities
I tried it because CS was getting boring to me but in the end CS still feels better to play imo. Gunplay and movement is better than in Valorant and i don't like how Valorant looks but CS2 is sadly going for a different style now too.
What really ruins Valorant for me are the abilitys.
Actually Valorant is catchy and competitive af,smooth and dynamic,CS2 is not CS anymore (atm),i have 5200h in csgo playing since 2016,i used to wake up at 8 am to play till 2pm,and after a break,again to play from 7 pm to 10pm,now i switch to Valorant recently bcs after 1-2 games in cs2 i just get bored to play more.
(Before like Valorant i've installed it and unistalled 10 times)
Now it's fun to headshot people left and right,and at least it's smooth and reactive.
I like the small things of cs which valorant couldn't copy. I like the aim, I like the movement, I like the start menu, I like my capsules, I even like a tutorial map. In cs go, getting a tap is like scoring a swish in basketball. Sure, the game isn't perfect. sure, the beta is rough. But I just like cs more, it feels more human to me.
I have never tried it bcs the caracters look like from the wings saga + they even have abilities if i understand correctly?
I played it a little in the first season, gave it a "this ok, not great but ok" rating. Came back a few seasons later and found out it had essentially turned into overwatch with all the abilities and changed the rating to "can't be bothered with this".
valo ability gameplay is interesting, more interesting IMO than csgo's 4 nades. the problem with the game is everything else, the gunplay, movement and maps are just a downgraded version of csgo.
i dont play valorant because a 1on1 aim dual in valorant just does not seem as competitive as in counter strike
riot games built an inferior quality FPS game but a strong entertainment product
Valorant is okay but a totally different game. They can coexist and have their playerbase but I stick to cs2 since I don’t like the abilities.
i just dont like that the main thing in valorant is operators, the more they will have them, the more complex game will be and it is not good
look at dota or lol, new players dont want to come in, simply because it is so hard to come in, too many different heroes + abilities + little things that change from hero/operator to hero/operator
and it looks like adhd, my eyes are burning while playing it
I've played Valorant a lot, but CS way more. I had periods where I preferred VALORANT, but currently I'm definitely on the side of CS, and here's a few reasons why:
-The spraying / RNG of spray feels really dumb to me. It doesn't even feel like an OPTION to spray.
-It isn't a real issue, just a personal one, but having to aim at models that look extremely different (even if the hitbox is the same) is really hard, and throws my aim off. In CS models look different, but not as different as in Valorant.
-Some of the maps suck ass, sorry not sorry.
-There's a few too many agents right now. I feel like they should've focused on maps and weapons for a while instead of adding new characters.
-The movement is a bit too slow for me, and gunplay is less interesting that in CS.
-First bullet accuracy's weird. Some of the guns are either ridicilously shit or ridicilously OP as well. Noscoping with an OP is useless and that's kinda ehh but it's not that big of an issue.
could go for more but i wanna watch yugioh lol
valarante child game.... look to cartoon grapfix to make kid player happy like children show.. valarante cartoon world with rainbow unlike counter strike with dark corridorr and raelistic gun.. valarante like playhouse. valarant playor run from csgo fear of dark world and realism
no spray, bad movement and too many girls
I do. It’s better than CS because of hitreg and anti cheat alone
Gunplay sucks. Maps suck even harder.
Riot Vanguard. I had to uninstall Riot Vanguard, which is the whole launcher and Valorant included, because it was blocking me from installing drivers for my Arctis headset. A free game blocking $300 headset drivers is unacceptable.
Because I don't want to learn a new game
csgo utility > valo abilities
I stopped playing it because the community reached a point where I found it ridiculous and I just stayed with cs, I only play occasionally if a friend invites me
I've played it, its just kind of boring. And very hard to take seriously due to the graphics, skins, and crazy crap happening everywhere. I prefer realistic games is all, the game tries too hard to be competitive when its graphics and abilities make it feel like it should be a casual game.
valorant is an okay game. its not as good as cs tho and therefore its a waist playing that instead of cs ^^
I'm fine with the artstyle and other Valorant things but the variety of agents and their abilities make the gameplay too complicated for me to comprehend. I haven't played much though maybe I'll change my mind if CS2 turns out bad
1. movement and shooting mechanic.
too slow + you can't spray but you can't burst either.
the delay between bursts to regain accuracy is too big.
2. 3yo map layouts, very, very bad.
3. too casual. (noob-friendly)
4. abilities that are 1 click often win over aim duels.
5. riot artists carrying the game more than devs.
I might have enjoyed it had i never played CS. But there is too much going on for me. Too much to remember, and the maps don't have years of player testing like in CS. The skin system valve has is also vastly superior. Also I felt like i lagged a lot more than CS for the same ping. The rng spray also makes it more of a tap fest, but the furst bullet accuracy is not as good. Mixed with the lag problem the game doesnt feel as good to play. Finally the heat my laptop experienced was a lot worse than playing CS at double the FPS. Its good in its own right, and the target audience is very happy with it.
-maps suck (probably the worst aspect about the game for me)
-pro matches boring af to watch
trash, boring, looks ugly, guns look retarded, never liked abilities in a game. also, i play cs
I just don't like the setting of this game. Feels kinda like it's not for me, cartoon graphics, abilities and stuff.
because it’s not CS and it never be
Abilities gave me a headache
no native 4:3 true stretched support, spraying is not consistent, maps are bad
No spray patterns at all, spraying in CS is a beatiful mechanic you have to learn. Movement is terrible. Art style Is weird. Guns are weird. 80 percent of the community are onlyfans girls or femboys/soyboys. Valorant crowds are boring. Valorant esport Is not existent in czech republic. I don't know one single person in here that plays Valorant. I don't want 20 champions to learn and chaotic abilities, thats nerdy. Valorant is very boring to watch. Many pro plays on the other hand in CSGO are legendary. Valve nowadays communicate with us more than Riot to their community. Also community in CS can create maps, skins. Valorant maps sucks. Graphics sucks, sound system suck, physics sucks, whole Valorant engine sucks. I don't get people that want to move to shitty Valorant in a case CS2 will be shit and not fixed yet. I would either move to CSGO if possible or CS 1.6. Or just play sim racing. Valorant just have 128 tick, rankings and intrusive anti-cheat. Faceit got all that with goated CS
i played Valorant a lot, and was immo when i did, but i stopped a while ago
ranked and pro play have become way too different, to the point where the ranked experience is so terrible by comparison. Nobody comms, most comps are terrible (3 duelists, no smokes etc.) and people will always overheat/greed for kills and throw rounds, because they care more about stats than winning
the strategy around Valorant is why i fell in love with the game, because there is so much nuance, but its become clear that the community cares more about tiktok clips than actually playing the game as intended.
cause it's literally a Overwatch mixed with Csgo Knockoff
I never played it, but I have played OW.
That game was the biggest waste of time know to man (Play one hero get countered hard, switch and insta dominate the server). Hero shooters are a terrible concept and I have hated them from day 1. (I tried because my friends played)
IMO abilities mostly detract from the skill and fun of a game for me.
Why learn how to take proper duels and tempo control when I can W M1 with sage heals.
Why learn how to lurk, when to lurk, and how map pressure and rotations work, when I can just teleport around as omen.
Why learn proper crosshair placement, when there are character with an XRAY ultimate (I hate ultimates too because it directly hinders more agressive playstyles).
Why learn proper util, when I can just play it down on a IPAD as brim or have it go through walls as Skye?
That rootkit of an anticheat.
I hardly ever play CS, let alone other games, so I don't have time to try another one
i played it once and it rlly sucked
I tried it and it felt plastic and I don't like the cartoon graphic
1. Player base: Almost everyone is so terrified of fighting unless you throw an ult. very few people make trade attempts. very rare for all 5 to do the same things. If you dont go all 5 down 1 lane, they think your griefing.
2. Too lazy to learn/play meta characters: I just wanna play the simple ones (Phoenix, Chamber, etc.) but they are very low value. A good KJ is untouchable, but looks lame/boring to play
3. I think its more toxic/childish than CS: Way more FF attempts 3 rounds in, getting screamed at and griefed after 1 bad round.
4. esports is unwatchable: way too much shit happening on screen.
idk, valorant looks too unsightly and boring
I really enjoy cs:go and ow2 but tactical shooter with abillities sounds like a bad idea
The teammates are better in Valo for sure
it's banned in my region lol, i simply cant play w/o vpn or other third party software
I stopped playing valorant because it stopped working on my pc (need to reinstall windows to fix that shit)
- Negative things:
- I can't keep up with so many updates: not only the new agents and maps, but the constant change of old agents' habilities that suddently make them unplayable in certain maps.
- In other words, having to re-learn the game if I spent more than 2 weeks away: abilities keyboard configuration, new maps, new agents, movement dynamics, abilities cooldown, damage, use, etc.
- Also, if the agents I was good in a certain map were picked, I felt lost and overwhelmed during the defense half, especially when rushed by 4-5 enemies. And then I felt bad for being a dead weight to my team.
- Spending in cosmetics and season pass feels like a waste of money when u stop playing.
- Some maps look lazy done and predictable.
- Many agents/abilities are repetitive.
- The "rush X site in the first 15 seconds" meta is boring and predictable.
- People doesn't know how to play after 30 seconds of round.
- Knowing the exact damage dealt when dying.
- Small customization.
+ Less tryhard people than in CSGO.
+ Shorter rounds and matches.
+ Cool skins and cosmetics.
+ Fracture map spawn idea is cool and different.
+ Economy is not so punishing when defending.
