It has boobies unlike CSGO, and a massive marketing campaign. It's all artificially propped up by Riot/Tencent money.

>>
all the basic UX stuff is easier

Consider smokes. CSGO - all smokes require research+lineups+practice, jump timings require macros. Valorant - click on a map

Consider economy info. CSGO - you need to know all guns your enemy bought last 3 rounds, then do mental math. Valorant - you press tab

also, zoomer marketing

CSGO kind of is a millennial/boomer game. Its aesthetics are tacticool. It has roots in a series that started in the 90s. Its a game that appeals to them.

Valorant is aimed at the post 2010's gaming crowd (which is when gaming went mainstream). So they're probably going to have a wider audience to tap into. Along with what others have already said. Its aesthetics are that western cartoon look. You know how a lot of weeb games sorta have a similar aesthetic/look? Not exactly the same, but a lot of them look very similar. Valorant is like that, but for a western inspired cartoon look. LoL, valorant, fortnite, overwatch, etc. They all sorta have that western cartoon look. Valorant also combined that with social media. Quite a few of the characters have this "social media influencer" look. The most extreme example is killjoy. Since most kinds grew up idolizing these personality archetypes, it appeals to them more.

The final issue with this post is that this is based off of "twitch views". Twitch leans heavily into the zoomer crowd. Boomers and millennials are a much smaller audience for twitch. They're still there, but much smaller. Valorant doesn't really release their population statistics. They too scared. If you look at stats like activeplayer, it shows CSGO is more popular. Just that valorant has it beat on twitch. So this entire discussion is basically pointless because nobody can prove how popular valorant is.

But none of this really matters. OP is just a kid. Probably under 20. Looking to validate their beliefs.

>Valorant is like that, but for a western inspired cartoon look
for some reason, valorant art style makes it look like a cheap copy of csgo, at least in my eyes
>>
>>795368
because youre old
>>
>>793139
Tencent marketing

>>795368
valorant uses that cheap low effort texture that riot is known for, riot is also known for making cheap knockoffs of popular games and having tencent market the fuck out of it
>>
>>793139
why are they all super low time to kill
or super sponge shit like overwatch
>>
is it worth trying if i'd play solo 99.9% of the time
>>
>>793139
its the streamers, if i were to guess, but notice how cs go still peaks significantly higher than valorant, i'd say theres a shitton of hours watched on val, but much less viewer engagement, and alot of people just have it in the background, as where in cs, the people actually watch the thing, because when they watch, its exciting pro matches
>>
>>796932
Most people play solo

Better looking than overtrash

The real reason is that 1.6 didn’t get popular off of streamers and content creators in the first place and valorant did

Who cares

lol, lmao even

>>797586
I hate Overwatch way more than valorant but Blizzard isn't afraid to have sexy characters. All Valorant females are intentionally ugly. Overwatch made prime sex objects
end the cope
>>
>>797605
Overwatch bitches are all ugly except for d.va
>>
>>797628
All Valorant bitches are hideous, and intentionally designed that way. Makes it easier for the transexual audience to get immersed

I’ve been playing cs since 1.5 when I was a kid and this is a huge part for me >>794661

It’s just easier to focus on the fun part of the game. Everything from queuing up for a game, to the buy menu in valorant is better. I was indifferent to the cartoonish graphics but right now I like how much easier it is to just see things in general. Also it feels for me like shots actually register better in valorant and are more satisfying. Maybe the higher sever tick rate? I’ve hear people say the opposite but that’s I how feel.

Also, cs feels dead. I join servers and it’s all bots. If there are people, it’s Mexican, weird foreigners or just boomers that think they are cool. In valorant I can always get games quickly with real people. People are pretty chill in general, obviously there’s some overlap in the people and there are some annoying kids though.

In CS you have to learn 2 different sets of grenade throws depending on tickrate. Garbage fucking game lmao

The fact that CScucks let Valve treat them like that speaks a lot about both their intelligence and self-worth.

why do all newfags type like insecure transexuals?

My son is 9 an he is way more interested in CSGO, I think he likes the realism with it where valorant is too cartoonish. He still plays Fortnite but yeah maybe CS appears to be more an adult cool game to him

Why? Dont know.
Don't care as long csgo is alive. And it is.

you can't even form a coherent argument about your game's dogshit infrastructure

it isn't

I've don't play Counter Strike and never will, I'm just trying to get to the bottom of why you type like such an insufferable homosexual

so am I a transsexual or a homosexual?
make up your bigoted mind kek

Literally the same exact thing what are you talking about? I have never in my life heard the word "bigot" uttered IRL, do you get sexual pleasure from typing like a fag?

Define "not alive" then. Currently game has 984k players online which is just slightly less than the amount of cocks your mod serviced. How is this "not"? Are you retarded?

Hey, remember those threads saying valorant is a dead game at launch, and valorant streamers are third grade outsiders? It wasn't that long ago.

What has changed? Valorant is for mentally stunted children, botted views and Ewhore streamers dont change this

What's the deal with Rust? Didn't seem like it would be that popular.
PS THE ABSOLUTE STATE OF R6

Yep, but definitely not a dead game as faggots here said back in 2020 (it's 2023)

You have no evidence otherwise until riot shows a live playercount

the women. boys in puberty. although they won't admit it. it is what it is.
even CSGO has to go through several "transformation" to succeed in some region.
>>
>>801546
Valorant may as well be a dead game on 4chan. The top 5 games on Twitch yet can't even have enough discussion on /v/ let alone a general. It's all boosted, unorganic garbage.
>>
>>793139
Everyone watches it because no one can play it except Windowsfags. Make a Mac version or throw it on Nvidia GeforceNow.
>>
>>798083
CS always worked in phases. I heard they’ll release a revamp with items ported over and re-released. Apparently it’s going to be on the Half-Life 3 engine.
>>
>>801617
Rust is popping off. The customizability is unmatched. Gun play sucks, but GTA is worse. I think they should have tiered servers by playtime. It’s very unforgiving for new people unless you play modded. But then you always play nodded like an arcade mode and never try vanilla.
>>
>>802185
I did the money glitch and maxed everything out on GTA online way back before heists were even implemented in it. I never touched it since, I never understood how people play that shit

yes I am sure valorant is a more popular viewing experience on twitch, but that doesn't make it a more popular game

both games are infested with cheaters at the pro level (what a surprise)
>>
>>793139
Valorant was made for zoomer masses with an anime art style that children can consume. It also easy to pick up so any child could play like you throw utility by clicking on a map
>>
>>793139
valorant is CS:GAY
same shit but filled with faggotry
it appeals to the faggot generations

This entire thread is "valorante child game"

You guys are pathetic lmaoooooo

I’m bored as fuck of the same csgo maps that I’ve been playing for the past 9 years. There’s hardly anyone pleasant left to play with in solo queue (NA), assuming you even get English speakers. At least half my faceit lobbies are full of Mexicans, Colombians and Peruvians. Shooting also feels better in Valorant.
I don’t see how people think source 2 is supposed to fix any of this since it’s basically just a graphics update + probably stealing more features from Valorant.
CS esports is still fun to watch even though it has none of the soul that the early days up til ~2016 had.
>>
>>793139
csgo is unplayable because of cheaters and bland gameplay because everyone can do everything
valorant has much less cheaters, agents have different abilities that change the gameplay slightly, better 120 tick servers
>>
>>793139
I tried playing CSGO for the first time in years and every game was filled with bots, it's dead.
>>
>>812927
same with fortnite, pubg, fall guys, multiplayer gaming is dead
>>
>>812927
So you have prime? I actually just got it and it seems better. I also realized there are community servers that people use a lot. But yeah, certain times of the day with certain games are just not very crowded. Ranked can always find a game in a few minutes it seems

Twitch viewerbase isn't the same as popularity.
Also, CSGO doesn't do Twitch drops.
>>
>>797658
Only a few years ago it had 1mil players at a time. So did Dota, and TF2 was also far more popular. Valve has lost its fanbase, due to laziness, lack of direction, lack of vision, and an unwillingness to modernize its community features.
