Despite Valorant only being announced two days ago, many CS:GO pros have already announced their intention to swap to Riot’s new FPS.
Long-time Counter-Strike pro, Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski, was invited to test out Valorant and his excitement looks like a sign he might be planning a comeback to the competitive FPS scene.
Similar to pashaBiceps, Fabien “KioSHiMa” Fiey was a CS:GO pro who has played for multiple organizations. KioSHiMa has so much faith in the new Riot Games FPS shooter that he is already saying the game will eclipse CS:GO. He has also already announced that he will be competing in it.
Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar is another notable name to join the possible Valorant pro scene. He’s a retired CS:GO pro who found better success as a streamer. But, make no mistake, summit1g is an FPS veteran and is already looking for players to link up with for Valorant.
Paul “sOAZ” Boyer is a professional League of Legends player who currently plays for Immortals as their top laner. sOAZ had a brief stint playing Counter-Strike 1.6 and has expressed his interest in switching to Riot’s new FPS game.
Braxton “swag” Pierce was a CS:GO prodigy who started his FPS career when he was just 15 years old. He’s mostly known for his time with Team IBUYPOWER and their infamous match-fixing scandal that got the young player permanently banned by Valve.
Coby “dizzy” Meadows is arguably one of the best Apex Legends players in the world. He was one of NRG’s pro Apex Legends players before dizzy decided to dedicate himself to streaming instead.
While dizzy hasn’t said anything specifically about Valorant, he has changed the bio on his Twitter account to “VALORANT Waiting Room.”
