Jamppi confirms move to VALORANT

The 19-year-old Finn is hoping to start with a fresh slate in the Riot Games first-person shooter.

Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen has confirmed the rumors of his plans to make a switch to VALORANT in a video statement released on Twitter.

He also commented on his stint with ENCE, where he played for close to nine months until he got benched earlier in January as part of the organization's overhaul of the CS:GO division, which saw the Finnish side take the international route as it signed Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer, Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi, and Paweł "⁠dycha⁠" Dycha.

Jamppi makes the switch to VALORANT

"These kinds of things happen all the time in esports, nothing I can basically do about it," Jamppi said in the video about his benching in ENCE. "It was nice from ENCE to give me the opportunity to compete against the best for eight months, it was always my dream to play against the best and I got it."

"I will be switching to VALORANT. The first reason all of you know," the 19-year-old shared, referring to the VAC ban that has prevented him from participating in Valve-affiliated tournaments and which he has tried to get lifted in a drawn-out court battle with the American company without success.

"Obviously, it's like a fresh start for me," he went on to explain. "Mentally also, I think it's a very good thing that I can play freely and compete and hopefully become one of the best players in that game."

Jamppi follows in a long line of players who made the switch to the Riot Games FPS with hopes to start anew. The youngster first came into the public eye when he joined SJ, where he played for a year and a half in 2018-2019, with some impressive performances there earning him a "One for the future" spotlight.

However, in late 2019, his VAC ban reportedly cost him a spot in OG when the team was being formed, and eventually led the Finn to file a lawsuit against Valve in a pursuit to remove his ban from Major competitions as he claimed the Steam account in question had been sold to a friend before it was banned.

cheating in computer games is really nothing compared to real crimes but In Jampiis case he lived a good life, everything he needed he got served on the plate by his family. So I don't see any reason why anyone should complain about a weakass punishment for a weakass violation. smh

Dude, you think he cared about eSports back then? You think he knew he'd become this good at the game like 6 years ago? Imagine being so senseless to think a kid deserves to have no career in some field because they messed up once. It's like saying a person who cheated in a relationship once never deserves to be in a relationship ever again.

Jamppi is not allowed to join any valve related tournament, not only cs. Dota, tf2 etc, scratch it all, yet they're all different games, care to explain? Moreover, if you get banned on league for scripting(as a pro) you're still allowed to play valorant.

dude, you clearly don't understand how fragile eSport is. if Valve start removing vacs after player get caught cheating, tournaments are very soon full of cheaters and they just come to cheat again because there isn't any really punishment and deterrence then and soon pro scene is dead because everybody cheats and sponsors leave did you see what happened to csgo matchmaking after csgo become free? cheaters just made new account so they can again play like jamppi and it was ruined secondly, many jamppis friends confirmed it was jamppi him as well cheating and he still lie about it when he is adult (+18 years old, which mean he haven't changed at all)

It is most certainly dumb when it provides no context or clarity to the topic, and when it isn't needed. That's like if someone said "Oh, I have to move out of the country, I guess my job is worthless to me now", and I tell them "Actually it's you who's worthless to the job now." Sorry if I come off as pretentious, I'm just trying to explain it.

I think cs is trending lower, but it's definitely more of an esport than valorant rn.
2021-01-28 19:34
Valorant is the best thing that could happen to both the csgo players (active and migrating) and csgo fans. Too many young players switched to valo, both eu and na, which means there isnt enough money on the table to keep playing cs - their deafult game. Talking about players who were playing majors regularly. And that means that valve stopped giving a fuck because csgo is the biggest team competitive shooter so why would they right? The whole world has been narrowed down to a top20 teams dog fight for 7 years now. Rich get richer but the scene is stagnated. Now valve has a rival so they need to be more creative and productive, which is always good for the market.

valve didn't ruin anything, he ruined it himself arrogant jamppi thought he would be above rules, but valve showed that he isn't csgo would be dead if valve wouldn't be strict with these rules he deserve ban, now he have to pay 80 000€ also to valve, nice move to make sue in wrong country lol

2021-01-26 16:35
Valorant is the Qatar league or China in foorball. retired game. Or CSSource years ago. They will cry soon like happened with cs source and CGS. (So similar, USA was the most affected) 5 minutes watching valorant and a normal person see that it is not a esports game. (twitch.tv numbers is the reality)

There is no point in making a fool of yourself and looking for mistakes, spelling mistakes, or picking up on sayings just to blindly defend a guy because he's from ur country. He is a cheater, he was banned rightfully, end of story. If it's any consolation to you, I wish cheater snax would also be banned for life, but unfortunately that's not for me to decide, anyway getting rid of every single cheater is a small success for the cs community. DEAL WITH IT NOW

Thats was my first and only Time i cheated(did not get vac banned its just made game feel pointless and stoped cheating same day as it lost its purpose) somewhere in my life but ye i guess u are right . I hope u guys never cheated in school or else cheater is and always be cheater in future .Kids do dumb shit to later regret and learn from mistakes if not then i would be dead by now.

By playing the game u agreed to accept the rules , and that's about it really. Whatever is ur explanation u should be banned too. Ur feelings about cheating doesnt change anything in this matter, but if u don't like the rules u ACCEPTED by playing then create ur own csgo and play there on whatever rules u want to play. Cheat , friendly kill, do whatever,otherwise just be a man to take the consequences for actions U DID.I agree, u can change with a time, but what if he would kill someone from ur family , would u be also so indulgent ?Of course no,ure indulgent towards jammpi cuz ure cheater urself :). Btw who are u to say i have no compasion to others, you don't know me, but anyway, yes i have, simply not to cheaters and im actually happy cheaters gets banned. Nothing wrong in it. U have compansion , BECAUSE URE CHEATER URSELF :). I never cheated , im not that weak minded to do it and im happy they fighting with this disgusting plague, which is destroying our gameplay. Let jammpi be an example to others. It's a good lesson to all of us.

ZERO CHANCE since he did sue valve in wrong country, finnish court don't have jurisdiction on this matter, they can't tell valve that "you have to let him play in country X" even he would won and he couldn't won anyway, because all facts, rules and laws were against jamppi now he have to play +80 000€ (probably in end like 200 000€ when second court done for valve and pay that debt for rest of his life since no money in valorant)

2021-01-26 19:13
This is the first real loss for cs, in my opinion, if vsm leaves too because of his vac ban he will be the second one, basically, everyone else either was washed up braindead aimer or just pretty bad in general. Steel and nitro somewhat hurt the scene, but I personally think nitro was overrated and in terms of steel it was only a matter of time before his vac ban drove him out of the scene, same with brax even though I think he was pretty overrated and didn't do shit even when he came back to playing and from what I've heard he isn't doing anything impressive in valorant either. Also, steel shared a lot of his knowledge via content and teaching the younger gen of players that are still active so his legacy isn't completely lost.

In almost all other sport/game you get second chance after cheating/doping or what ever. In football you get few years ban for doping for example. Valve should have just lifted his ban, especially for such an old case.
2021-01-27 01:09

old case? it happened just few years ago and secondly, pro csgo would be dead in moment if valve would say: now you can cheat all much you want, your vac bans will be removed if get caught, everyone would cheat and win in tournaments in begin and then sponsors would left and csgo die (and valve will never let this happen and they shouldn't, cheaters like jamppi deserve their permanent ban, otherwise whole system collapse because in eSport there are millions guys to cheat in tournament if valve is tight with it, so jamppi have fun with KQLY, Sf, emilio and smn in valorant where isn't any money (already dead game, deserved)

It is old case, something like 4 years I think. I disagree with your thinking that CS would die if players like Jamppi would get second chance. CS is already full of cheaters, permanent ban is clearly not scaring them. Also I don't think it makes any difference in a mind of a pro player who is considering cheating, that if caught, does he get 5 years or permanent ban. And come on, Permanent ban from pro competitions for cheating as a kid/teen in some matchmaking game. Totally out of proportion punishment. Jamppi did not even know back then that he is risking a career there. I would maybe understand that you would give someone permanent ban for cheating in a pro match, because there is money at stake etc.

permanent banning is scaring people who want to be pro (or are pros) and thats the point thats the thing keeping csgo alive PS: 20 years old case is old case, 4 years old thing is recent past
