Valorant is a new FPS game. A lot of people including streamers try to play this game. Even some of them try to compare this game with the other games such as CSGO. Then, as a streamer and former CSGO professional, what does Shroud think about Valorant games compared with CSGO?
As a former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro, Shroud said that the game is easier to play compared with CSGO. The reason is mostly due to the simplified map. He explained that the time to kill is one-to-one with CS. He also said that the game just seems easier since the game is like 1.6, where it is just bland, super simple. In addition, he stated that the walls have nothing on it and the characters pop.
The simplicity in the game makes it easier to target opponents. It is when there are a lot of skilled CSGO player’s accuracy and mechanics will serve them well and also the headshots will begin rolling in. Firstly, he speculated that he did not know if this game is able to surpass CS but he thinks that it will be successful. He also kept getting confused about the abilities which are various that he was seeing in the Valorant gameplay that Riot released. He complained that the game may be hard to watch compared to CSGO due to the addition of abilities that people may not understand at the beginning.
