Valorant Breaks Out

With closed beta testing underway for Valorant, there are videos appearing all over of Riot's upcoming multiplayer shooter. Here's a Google Search and a Twitter Search that will lead you to a treasure trove. There's also an inside look at the VALORANT bootcamp on ESPN with some hands-on impression of being slaughtered in the game by a bunch of pro players. Last weekend. Here's a Welcome to the team Dev Diary from Riot from the event. And here's a list of various articles that look at the game to some degree or another:

Way too many 1-shot kills for my liking. "every headshot is a one-shot kill"? Oh that isnt going to be good

of course, they're blatantly ripping off CStrike with no fucks given, but wasn't their League of Legends a ripoff of DOTA? so it's not their first time ripping off a game.

The alt-fire of the knife looks like they used CSGO's animation.

Ugh, this game is going to make them a billion dollars at minimum.

That's just how the universe works now.

That looks way worse than LawBreakers....

Definitely not my kind of game, but neither is Fortnite and it is making millions,... so who knows what is going to hit big or not..?

They think they can make a better CS.
It's been a while since a big studio has tried.
People consider the gameplay outdated yet CSGO is still huge competitively, mix some OW/TF2 character abilities into it, promise the best netcode and anticheat ever... they certainly have the money to throw at it.

It's a combination of CS and Overwatch with a primary focus on competition / pros.
It's been tried before... but hey maybe this time it will work.

This looks surprisingly bland. The characters looks quite generic and why do almost all of them have some form of annoying bubble or wall skill that just completely blocks vision? Are matches of Valorant going to consist of annoying skill objects that are in your face and will consist of players spraying shots through them, getting lucky kills and then shit-talking trash in chat?

For all of it's faults, at least Overwatch's characters had personality in their design and skillsets.

It looks like someone made an Overwatch mod in a 10 year old engine.

They also have what might be a little bit of cs_italy going on...

For all that LoL money, this looks remarkably unimpressive.
I'm like the man who single-handedly built the rocket and went to the moon. What was his name? Apollo Creed?
