Ocelote Believes VALORANT Will Eventually 'Destroy' CS:GO

Ocelote Believes VALORANT Will Eventually 'Destroy' CS:GO

G2 Esports owner, Carlos "ocelote" Rodríguez Santiago believes that VALORANT will eventually "destroy" Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

With many players quitting CS:GO to pursue careers in Riot Games' new tactical shooter, many people have questioned the future of the esport that has blessed us with years of high-class entertainment. Just yesterday, the ESL announced their new event calendar for the year, including a $5M prize pool and a state of the art COVID-complaint Pro Tour arena. However, G2 Esports' owner, and former League of Legends professional, ocelote, believes that CS:GO is destined to be overtaken by VALORANT.

Speaking to ESPN, ocelote stated: “[I think VALORANT will] end up destroying, in terms of numbers of people playing the game, Counter-Strike, because in Counter-Strike, the only thing you have going for you is the mechanics and I love the game to death, I really do. 

“In VALORANT, you have different characters and each character has lore and background. We, humans, are very empathetic by nature so we want to know about these characters".

Bringing the game into real-life is something that appeals to gamers too. Riot have excelled in this area in both VALORANT and League of Legends, creating Spotify playlists for their agents to bring them into real life. Having this connection is something that ocelote believes will see players choose VALORANT over CS:GO.

Most recently, players such as Joshua "steel" Nissan, has made the transition over to VALORANT, leaving the Counter-Strike scene stagnated and wilting. 

The G2 VALORANT roster consists of players that have also made the switch from CS:GO, such as Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks, David "davidp" Prins, and Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas Colocho. Mixwell was once a part of the second highest-ranked team in the world in his tenure playing for OpTic Gaming's CS:GO roster.
