Valorant is the hot ticket right now. We already discussed all the big Overwatch players making their way to Riot’s new FPS. The same problem has been plaguing CS:GO.
Ryan “freakazoid” Abadir is leaving Swole Patrol for Valorant, with no team ready for him yet. This is another big hit for Swole Patrol after Victor “food” Wong and Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro left both moved over to Valorant and Auston “Cooper” Abadir left to look for a new CS:GO team. Other players leaving for Valorant from other teams include Braxton “swag” Pierce, Austin “crashies” Roberts, and Hunter “SicK” Mims.
CS:GO has had a rough month with many big names moving to the new game. ESL’s Season 12 starts August 31st, and can create enough hype to entice players back.
