Valorant eSports: A Glorious Shooter with a Claim to Success

Valorant is called the CS:GO killer and the most promising team shooter in the world. Pretty loud statements, especially if you consider the fact that they were uttered at the game, which came out quite recently. To be more precise, the game was released in June 2020. Despite its young age, the new shooter has already gained fame in the widest circles and gained an impressive army of fans. Such success from the start is due to important factors that allow us to make predictions about this game as a promising eSports discipline. It was developed by Riot Games and is focused exclusively on quality competitive gameplay. Riot also developed League of Legends, which is the most famous and massively popular game in the world. Fans and pro players have no doubt that the project created by Riot Games will definitely become a success and break into the top of eSports.

The Basic Essence of the Valorant

Some representatives of the eSports community compare the shooter with another famous game, which is called CS:GO. Indeed, there are a number of similarities that allow us to draw such conclusions. As in Counter-Strike here is a confrontation between the two teams. Each opposing side has 5 players. The teams have their own goals and objectives. One team defends, while the other attacks and storms the defense. In order to win, the attacking team must beat all defenders or detonate a bomb, which in this game is called a “spike”. The defense team must not let the bomb go off in order to win the round.

Visually, the games also resemble each other, but this is not surprising. After all, they belong to the same genre — first-person shooters. The player has a wide arsenal of firearms to choose from, with which he can hit the players of the enemy team.

But there are some serious differences. First of all, players are offered a choice of several agents. Agents are special characters with a unique set of characteristics, parameters, and, most importantly, special skills. Each agent plays a different role and performs strategic tasks. Interaction between agents in a team allows you to deploy and implement a lot of the most interesting tactics. This brings the competitive potential to a whole new level.
