Valorant Features

Some players say that Valorant reminds them of CS:GO and Overwatch. Indeed, there are some similarities. Riot Games did not reinvent the wheel and implemented a time-tested competitive formula – two teams of 5 people each. Teams oppose each other and perform their tasks in the game. The attacking team tries to set the bomb and wait for it to explode. The defending team tries to prevent the explosion. Detonating or defusing an explosive device earns a point for the team that has successfully completed the scenario. Typically, a match consists of 25 rounds, and the victory goes to the team that wins a total of 13 rounds. An important difference from CS:GO is that each of the players controls not just a team member but an “agent.” That is a specialist who has certain skills and abilities. Agents have their roles, based on which they perform individual tasks in the confrontation. This makes the game even more interesting and varied.

The next Valorant tournaments will take place very soon. This competition will not be boring, as the best Valorant players will fight in the competition. Many of them already have experience in competitions as they have participated in top esports tournaments in CS:GO, Overwatch, and other esports disciplines. Valorant gives them the opportunity to test themselves in something new and gives them new career prospects and opportunities. In addition, victories in competitions bring players good money. So there are interesting matches and new sensations waiting for us.
