Valorant: DAY 1

The widely anticipated game Valorant released today worldwide. With hundreds of thousands of players rushing into games, the servers seem to be holding strong, *cough cough besides the APAC and SEA severs*which were down this morning.

With relatively minor issues arising as launch day comes to an end, Valorant launched successfully and offers exquisite gameplay and functionality for all players.

Unlike many games before, Valorant is a breath of fresh air when it comes to game mechanics. Landing a headshot actually kills your opponent without having to release a barrage of bullets that “hit” but did nothing. Being able to aim, is crucial in Valorant, especially if you are in it to win it.

After playing a few short games of Valorant, I was very pleased with what it offered. Balanced gameplay with a meaningful mechanic.

What games is Valorant like?

If CSGO and overwatch had a baby with a sprinkle of Aplex Legends, Valorant would be that baby.

How many characters are in Valorant?

Unlike its big sister League of Legends, Valorant launched with 8 characters. It is assumed with further patches new agents will be added each with their own unique lore and abilities.

What are Valorant classes?

There are 4 types of classes within the game, and I’ll break them down into a nutshell.

Duelists: Front line attackers. Force combat.

Initiators: Supports team with gathering intel / achieving objectives

Sentinels: Back line / defenders

Controllers: Support/enemy vision sabotage

in my opinion, Looks super generic, its like a low budget FPS, even Paladins and Overwatch clone has more identity than this. Those who played TeamFortress and Overwatch may find this boring and without soul.


I heard that the game has a virus is that true if no i will get it it seems very fun.


It looks like a less fun more closed version of apex legends with more open aoe skills.

Im sure it will do well though at least as well as the first 2 months of apex legends.

Yes it is more similar to CS: GO, but always unsure what the market potential is.

i got beta access over a month ago and after watching streamers play, i realized its nothing but a marketing campaign for a game that I probably won't enjoy, so i never even bothered to play it... 

most streamers I watched playing did not seem to genuinely enjoy playing it, and only seemed enthusiastic when when they were surprised with lucky headshots or random hits through smoke clouds.

i dont want to play a game that is more frustrating than cs:go servers.

it's a twitch  / mixer game, most people were there for a free key and streamers won subscribers with that



Интересный и красочный сюжет, немного юмора
