freakazoid calls it quits

Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir has announced that he has decided to quit CS:GO in order to pursue a career in VALORANT.

The news hardly comes as any surprise after Swole Patrol, having been released from eUnited earlier this year, spent the last two months without support despite the 27-year-old's continued efforts to find an organization to represent.

As a result, the team went on to gradually disintegrate over the course of May, with Victor "food" Wong first announcing his departure to the Riot Games-developed FPS title, before Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro followed suit and Austin "Cooper-" Abadir left the team to further his Counter-Strike career elsewhere.

freakazoid follows food and Zellsis to VALORANT

It's unclear what will happen to the last remaining player of Swole Patrol, Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado, who has yet to comment on his future, as does the coach, Armeen "a2z" Toussi.

North American Counter-Strike has been affected by far the most by the arrival of VALORANT's closed beta. Braxton "swag" Pierce was among the first to announce his move to the new game, followed by a plethora of others, such as Austin "crashies" Roberts, Hunter "SicK" Mims, and the Swole Patrol trio.

Having started to play at a high level in Counter-Strike: Source, freakazoid had a long career in the franchise. In CS:GO, he is perhaps best known for his year-long tenure with Cloud9, with whom he went on a successful streak in the summer of 2015, placing second at three consecutive international events: ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 Finals, ESWC, and FACEIT League Stage 2 Finals.

Why? He has more or less faded into obscurity anyway, same as most of the others who swaped.
2020-05-10 18:37
The only reason Freakazoid was still playing was because his brother handed him a spot. Otherwise, he would already be retired.

Im all for talking shit but if youre going to do it then at least be accurate bout it so you dont look like a retard. Freak was on swole before cooper
2020-05-10 22:21
I am accurate. I'm talking about the current Swole Patrol, which was eUnited until recently. Nov, 2018 Cooper left Swole Patrol to join eUnited. Then in 2019 he invited Freak to join. Basically felt sorry for him because he didn't have any other offers.

Not really, the only ppl switching are the ones whose careers are over and cannot compete at high or even intermediate level. You don't see any t1 t2 player considering the switch yet.

It is, I believe that CS needs to change, mostly on domestic tournaments. I don't know how Valorant is thinking about solving this problem because if they don't, it's the same thing all over again, 40 teams to be invited and the others discarted and struggling to earn money. In my country, they're treating esports as another sports, with it's own federation, news coverage channels, locals tournaments, divisions, even awards at the end of the year like the Oscars. And it's gradually growing. I think that we have the only player on CSGO community to be sponsored by RedBull. The big world org invites should be directly linked to the nations tournaments winners, to promote the country's competitiveness first, and of course, to bring more viewers and revenue.

No one wants to see bad teams getting invites for free. If decent Portuguese teams exists, they has to earn their invite by playing like everyone else.

Portugal MCDOUG 
That's what I'm saying, the top 30/40 teams of the world normally get invites for free, but that don't promote the scene, you first need good competitive challenges on each country and depending on those scores the teams are awarded with invites like the champions league, how things are right now with bo1 qualifications doesn't protect the teams and player's. A lot of luck gets into the equation and it shouldn't be like this. It's awful for a pro player career.

America invented every device you are using, the internet, this game. We have the best universities in the world. We lead the world in the 2 most important industries - technology from Silicon Valley, and finance from Wall Street. You are speaking English because of American global economic dominance in the 20th and 21th centuries. Contrary to online memes and the propaganda of your country which styles itself as an enemy of the US, the US is a pretty cool place. You should come and visit San Francisco, New York, or one of our several other beautiful cities on the Schroeder global cities index.

Even spanish and chinese is more spoken than english. Why i’m speaking english? If u read the text in the bottom of the site it says “This is an international site”. Btw if u know some history u will know that ur country was made by europeans because id europeans didn’t reach america, u will be a cultureless random citizen of a tribe.
2020-05-13 17:01
Lmaooo you just proved my point - "international site" where you speak the "international language", which is English. And why is it English, especially when other languages have more native speakers? Why are you forced to learn my native language before you can use international forums like HLTV? The answer is because of America's cultural and economic dominance of the 20th and 21st centuries, very much so on the internet in particular. Not sure how you thought you were making any other point than exactly mine haha

Well actually the best university in the world is Oxford, then followed by Caltech, but the size of that university is so small with only around 2k students. If we look at the bigger picture, the US might be one of the best educated countries atm, but your future workforce will suck, just look at the global competitiveness report. Technology-wise China are ripping your companies of their technology if they want to enter the Chinese market (why wouldn't they? 1,4 bil. potential customers). The Chinese market is build for the China, therefore foreign are at a major disadvantage, because they can only enter the country by a joint venture with are Chinese (most likely government funded) company. And regarding to finance the American market is huge, but it has been suffering hugely due to corona virus, and the country has debt with almost every other country. American dominance is suffering even though a lot of countries are dependent on you, but they are more dependent on China. unluko Oh and I forgot to mention student debt before. 0))

I see you're treating the Times' list as absolute truth when it's actually a contested topic, but I'm not arguing 1 vs 2 vs 3 anyway. Look at the top 20 on your list and you obviously see the United States dominating. The research and innovation comes from here. Top professionals come from all over the world to the United States to conduct research, and interact with other elite in their field, at our universities and top companies. If you are a rising programming savant from the EU, your dream is to work for a top tier US tech firm like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, etc, where you can be on a team with other world-class minds, with a huge budget, doing bleeding-edge work on super cool futuristic stuff. Your dream is not to work for one of the top EU tech firms, like SAP or Skype. And yes, China is good at stealing technology and making partnerships with African countries, but America's intellectual (and cultural) dominance is going nowhere anytime soon. That programmer's dream is not going to swap to learning Chinese to work for Huawei and the CCP.

2020-05-11 02:17
It has some cleanliness problems (in a few parts), and some problems that big cities have. But overall, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and the US leading the world in technology from those places, is something to be very proud of as an American. Most likely you are right-leaning and associate San Francisco with liberals... a debate about America's merit vs other countries is not the time to bring in your domestic politics-based perspective
2020-05-11 06:46

America has a larger population than Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Netherlands combined. Not bad for a first world country with high salaries, dont you think so? There are lot of people who get tired of their boring life in Norway or Switzerland and move to USA, a country with all the possibilities and all kind of activities in this life.

America dominates at every sport it is interested in, as the biggest first world country + genetically diverse + deep rooted sports culture. Have you heard of basketball? Have you watched the Olympics before? The best players in the NFL and NBA are of an insane athletic caliber, it's literally not comparable to soccer (and yes I am a fan and watch a lot of EU soccer). Even an insane athlete like Ronaldo does not stand out at all/slightly pales in comparison to guys like LeBron James, Michael Thomas, etc Soccer is unpopular here as a men's sport. If there were interest in it, we'd easily be #1 in the world, as is the case for our women's team. Just by soccer being one of the top 3 women's sports here, we easily crush every other country in the world, where of course soccer is the top women's sport. Most likely you are a kid who only watches esports, has watched ~20 soccer games in your life, and is aware American football exists but knows none of the rules.

Everything I just said about sports is literal fact. America has the demographics to dominate any sport it is interested in, and the historical record/today clearly show it. Try actually presenting a counterpoint to a single statement I made there? Obviously you won't though and are just going to ad hominem attack me, bring up something completely unrelated to sports, or not respond at all.

If you removed the top 10% from every 1st world country in the world, America would by far be the stupidest. You piggyback on the achievements of people millions of time more successful than you. And did I mention that most of those people's successes are from fixing basic problems about your absolute SHOTHOLE of a country.
2020-05-11 13:20
Every country's innovations and world-class achievements primarily come from the elite of the country... But each country's elite are a product of the entire ecosystem of the country. And you have no basis to say anything about me personally, rein it in bud. Your last statement is also nonsense, just a boorish, zero-effort belch without remotely bothering to try backing it up. What did the invention by Americans of all the technology you are enjoying right now, and almost all of the other websites most people use, have to do with fixing our country? First to the moon/innovator of almost all space technology, cellphones, countless breakthroughs in medicine and science, world leader in pop culture... I could go on for a while... were to fix our country? I really don't get where all this hatred comes from among young people from other first-world countries that are friends of the United States. It's absolutely one way - the vast majority of Americans (except maybe some idiot nationalistic rednecks) have very positive opinions towards Canada, Europe, AU/NZ, Japan/Korea, and other American allies.

Easy there Patriot. America dominates American sports, you don't care about soccer world doesn't care about handegg, Basketball, baseball... That's like saying Canada dominates hockey not because no-one else gives a shit. You would dominate soccer? Really? Against SA + Europe + East? Idiot. As for CS, it's Americas most played FPS. And what do you have to show for it internationally? Compared to EU, nothing. I feel bad for Brax, he would have carried teams far. Career rekt went Valulrent ofc. Freak won't be the 1st of non factors to move, and most will be NA'ers.
2020-05-12 20:49
Basketball is extremely popular around the world - the third highest viewership numbers worldwide, just barely behind cricket. And ofc the vast majority of cricket's fans are in India, so there is an easy case that basketball is the 2nd most popular widespread sport across the world. I guess you haven't heard of athletes like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, and Lebron James? Have you heard of the Dream Team? Probably not, since you don't seem to be familiar with the Olympics, where the United States dominates in countless sports. On soccer - again (bad comprehension?) look at our women's soccer team - incredibly dominant. That is what happens when soccer is one of the 3 most popular sports among women in our massive, wealthy country. If soccer weren't extremely unpopular as a men's sport like it is (because basketball, football, baseball, track sports suck up all the top talent), I think it's a fair thing to say that we would stack up A LOT better with SA + Europe where every athletic talent dreams of being a soccer star. On CS being America's most played FPS, did you just make that up, or can you provide a source? I know ZERO people IRL that play CS. Know many that play Fortnite, some CoD, and even some Overwatch. But zero CS.

"Your juxtaposition is invalid as I doubt anyone will say something like that irl against someone from another nationality, saying it from behind a screen to someone who is miles away from you is way easier than saying it to someone's face." Still doesn't change the fact that he did it for many many many people to see. Not that s1mple isn't guilty of being toxic, he does it in a more pure and straight-forward way. I dont like you = fuck you. Freak was on some middle school bullshit that I find does not fit anywhere except middle school.

How deluded are you xD Game is not even out yet and orgs are already signing players, others are switching to Valorant. Not in NA only, also Japan, Korea. Valorant is going to be much bigger than CS. I'm not even talking about the hype this game has. Look how much influence Riot has in Asia. It won't kill CS but Valorant will be much bigger title than CS ever was/will be in a matter of moths after its full release.
2020-05-10 18:14
Valorant is only relevant because of the excessive marketing that riot uses to atract people. People only care about that game because it's literally everywhere.
2020-05-10 18:27
You say that Valorant will be a much bigger title than CS ever was but at the same time call ME deluded. Incredibly low tier trolling. And there's a reason Valorant will be big in NA and Asia, cause they ain't got shit on EU when it comes to raw talent and dedication, therefore the talent sticks with the tactically and explosively superior game that is CS and the lazy pot smoking NA jumps ship to the snooze fest that is Valorant. Valorant blew up because of the marketing, the whole key drop thingy on Twitch that got way out of hand. When the smoke settles and people start realizing how incredibly dull it is, they won't stick around. Remember this comment when it happens.

I feel Europeans are just scared that they wouldn't remain dominant as they're in CSGO right. Bcuz they know CSGO is gonna get over shadowed by Valorant They're acting like pussies bcuz sooner or later American , Asian , SEA talents are gonna crush Europeans in a game that's definitely gonna become more popular than CSGO.
2020-05-10 22:45

:p Actually thing is Many Europeans had kind of head start in CSGO as you know being a better continent y'all got servers way before asian countries. So Valorant is kinda like a new start for players around the world as it needs your raw CSGO skills and just requires you to use that skill with some abilities which are not as over powered as they seem on screen
2020-05-11 11:50
Your second sentence makes no sense. I cant understand it
2020-05-11 12:39
Valorant will surely won't kill CS. People who played CS will continue playing it. However, CS will stop growing. You have a good example - Quake. People stopped playing the game cuz the skill gap between players was too big. Kids dont want to grind one game for 10k hours to get good at it. They want to compete right away. Valorant is much easier game to "master" in comparison to CS. Also the graphics are more attractive to young players. Also consider how much influence Riot Games has. They still own the largest esports title out there. CS community wont loose much players to Valorant. It's going to struggle to get new players to start playing CS. Give or take 3-5 years and csgo majors will be a memory. Im just curious what will Source2 bring to cs.

well valorant gives pros who are stuck in tier 3 or without any proper team or org to back their financial status will go to valorant. Scream: without team for a long time and does not look like will be in a team unless vitality/heretics will ask him to join. He is enjoying valo atm. Draken: dont know but as he wont be joining nip/fnatic he might try to go to valorant. Pyth: career dead after left nip NA: no orgs want to pick up csgo tier2-3 teams Aka orgless for a long time without org, swole patrol too and they showed pretty good results for their level and could improve.

NA CS players looking at this as their opportunity to jump on a short-term Fortnite like bandwagon, they couldn't play Fortnite and compete with those 12 year old streamers, but they think they can in Valorant. Good luck bots. This is actually great for the NA scene. Gets rid of the stagnant middling level players that hang around in the toxic tier 2/3 scene stealing opportunity away from growing teams.

"I can’t wait to be apart of the team that competes at worlds or whatever it’s called for it and fucking shit up against teams world wide." What he, presumably, meant to say was that he wanted to be "a part" of a successful team, meaning that he would be one of its components. What he said was that he wanted to be "apart" from a successful team, which means that he wanted to be distinct or separate from one, i.e. meaning the total opposite. But, yeah, it is 2020. It's not like anyone can fucking spell any more.

The only people that see money in valorant are the ones that are not getting any in csgo. Look at all the NA pros going pro in valorant. None of em have had anything going for them in CS scene for the past few years.

You're both blind, Do you think some top tier csgo player who sees an ex-csgo tier 2/3 player making money hand over fist in Valorant won't want a piece of the action? Don't be so naive, Money drives esports, players follow money they are not loyal to a game. What everyone is missing is these t2/3 players will show the t1 players how easily they can dominate Valorant and rake in money.

True but it doesn't matter if they are mediocre, The news of the day still reads CSGO Pro Moves To Valorant. That headline repeating over and over and over is not good for CSGO. I wouldn't be surprised if after Rio a lot of Tier 1 players move to valorant.
2020-05-10 23:03
Yeah makes sense move from a game where you make 500k minimum a year, to a game where you currently earn money by streaming it (numbers arent even that good anymore now that the key hype is over) and hope that riot will establish a scene relatively soon, thats also big and sustainable. Because if this game takes another 6-9 months till theres an actual scene with orgs and stuff, these people will either have to switch back or work at mcdonalds, which in turn is a big warning sign for anyone wanting to switch.
2020-05-14 06:53
Next news: "All of NA leaving CS to pursuit a career in Valorant"
2020-05-10 18:56
Such wasted potential. Ah well at least NA will finally be better than the EU at something
2020-05-10 18:57
I dunno why people are bashing on the "pros' who switch to valorant. I mean look: only washed up players are doing it. They realized they will never be at the top of CS anymore and they can't keep up with the scene. I mean if any of you were on their place you would've done the same. They have no future anymore in CS besides playing for tier 100 teams with laughable paychecks or stream with 400 viewers regularly just to survive. And if Riot is paying them some kind of money ( I doubt it) to jump in and promote Valorant it makes sense. They just want to try and have bigger prosperity in something new and fresh.

They were playing pretty good after they disbanded in EUnited. I see a lot of people making fun of this but this is terrible news for people like me that love CSGO. Surely they were not tier 1 players but they were decent and It does harm the scene to lose them.

They still have huge earning potential in the first stages of Valorant because of their name recognition.
2020-05-10 20:07
If they get on teams with big salaries sure, but there is no way that these 25-30 yo players are going to go win tournaments against younger players with twice their aiming ability.

I love freak, sucks to see this. I mean he lost way too many players and didn't want to start from the bottom again really sad... all these players that didn't do that well in csgo won't magically be t1 in valorant lol just wait till asia jumps on this game, they're all sent straight to t3.

2020-05-10 22:19
He likes it bc no1 is good at it yet. So if he and all these other t3 players that cant make it big in csgo transfer to valorant early, they can make a team and win all the early tournaments before people become good. Just like NIP did with csgo...

Everyone laughing and insulting. Valorant is clearly having a negative effect on the professional CSGO community. The NA scene could be in a lot of trouble if this keeps going the way it's currently going. If for example, Stewie was kicked from Liquid or Tarik from EG, there are literally no other NA teams to move to. All of a sudden, you have a big name NA pro making the move to Valorant. The game is in serious trouble.
