  • Tfue expresses his opinion on VALORANT while comparing it to CS:GO.

  • States that VALORANT is a fun game and it might do well.

  • Ranks CS:GO above VALORANT when it comes to competitive gameplay. 

Fortnite professional and popular streamer Turner “Tfue” Tenney in a recent stream of his expressed his opinion about VALORANT, while also comparing it to the veteran first-person shooter CS:GO.

“VALORANT is a more casual CS:GO,” said the 22-year-old, while adding that “If you want to die to f**king air-strikes, Go play f**king VALORANT. If you want to actually play a game that takes f**king true skill, go play CS:GO.”

While the CS:GO community would happily agree with Tfue’s stance on the matter, is it actually true? Is this how VALORANT actually stacks against CS:GO?

Though placing VALORANT below CS:GO, Tfue said that he thinks it is a fun game and it might do well also. But competitive wise he doesn’t see the game being bigger than CS, showcasing another reason why CS:GO might have the upper hand.

While listing the problems he has with VALORANT, Tfue said that “The problem that I have with it is that is is too repetitive, it is not fun to watch, and I feel like the abilities are like kinda not balanced. It is kinda like how Overwatch was at the start.”
