Ukrainian commentator and analyst Alex yXo Malecki said that Valorant will not be able to compete with CS:GO.
“Valorant definitely not an alternative to CS:GO. The new game will take the part of the audience, then some people will remain there and some will return to CS. CS:GO for many years not losing popularity at all. There was a time when online dropped to 500 and I even began to worry. Once I survived the death of Counter-Strike, and wouldn’t have stood it a second time, when I have the top commentator, working for important matches.
Back to VALORANT… the Alternative? This is ridiculous. The game will overcome the audience have some sort of Overwatch. What positive is there? Heard, the developers claimed that it will go on weak computers. About active abilities, I treat them well because played a lot of new Quake. And there’s this issue with ebillme went well, despite the fact that Quake is a classic first person shooter. The game did not take off for other reasons. Including, I think, because of the carelessness of developers. Therefore, CS does not appear alternatives never. Forget about it. This will not happen.
Much depends on Riot Games – the developer depends on everything. For example, PUBG developer working on the product, adds some chippies, card, but online falls. Falls because there are some other alternatives. To VALORANT seized 300 thousand people in Counter-Strike must match very many things. And so the game looks nice, but there are some funny and silly moments. It is impossible to think of a game that will surpass Counter-Strike. Because Counter-Strike is a symbiosis of all. A small simple map, clear and simple gameplay. Now the discipline is so old and famous that organized corporate tournaments, the players in the quarantine playing CS. Counter-Strike is already a household word. This is like Schumacher. Therefore, he will live a very long time,” said ear.
Earlier it was reported that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will not be transferred to Source 2.
