We have seen CS: GO dominating the e-sports scene, we have witnessed Overwatch making a break, R6Siege as well, but we haven’t seen a mix of CS: GO and Overwatch in one video game. That is Valorant, Riot Games’ first-person shooter, which looks even more exciting than first believed of. During this “noobie period,” we are having quite a substantial experience, and there’s nothing else distinct about the game than notice its smoothness.
Stable FPS is a performance determinant that a competitive multiplayer first-person shooter requires, which also brings a fairer and explicit ground. The reason the game doesn’t offer customizable FOV, explains how Riot Games aims to develop the game in the future. Its transcendence to the e-sports scene will most probably come shortly because it holds everything a competitive multiplayer first-person shooter needs.
Valorant is one of the most anticipated first-person shooter titles, and the current Twitch Numbers are confirming the same. Fans may get closed beta access by watching the Streams that are eligible for drops. The intriguing factor about Valorant is how casual it looks, but how competitive it feels.
A game in which landing a Headshot is a determining factor of the player outcome, similar to CS: GO, and abilities which development offers robust game development throughout one round, similar to Overwatch. But, it feels way more tactical solely to its punishing one-shot mechanics (hitboxes do matter), which is way more different than what Overwatch has to offer.
Valorant is currently in closed beta, and the only way to get access to is being invited on Twitch. Twitch Drops are available on multiple channels of famous streamers, such as Timthetatman, Summig1G, and DrLupo, including others who offer the same. To get a chance to receive an invite, you have to link your Riot Account with your Twitch.
