Shroud: VALORANT makes Counter-Strike “look like a joke”


About to do his job VALORANTS beginning for the Sentinels four years after retiring Counter-Strike in 2018, Tic Star Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek said Riot Games’ shooter was a much tougher game to play.

This contradicts the view he has expressed in the past. In 2020 he said it was easier because the cards had fewer distractions and a month later he said the skill cap was lower.

However, after sinking his teeth into Riot’s first-person shooter to more than 1000 hours live – and joining a professional team – he changed his tone, and now that he is at the absolute top in terms of skills, his vision has completely changed.

“This game is difficult. CS: GO looks like a joke compared to this game, I tell you,” he said after being possessed by a random player during his July 23 stream. “There’s no sugar coating or anything. This game is just hard.

After thinking about it for a moment, however, his old thoughts about a lower skill cap came to the surface.

“I wonder if it’s hard because everyone’s so good, and everyone’s so good because the game is probably easier,” he added. “Maybe that’s why [it’s harder]. This keeps the competition high.

He didn’t elaborate beyond that. However, his position could be because VALORANTS has classes and skills like Surveillancewhile CS: GO doesn’t, which adds more depth.

The human aimbot still obliterates his opponents most of the time, as evidenced by the absurd triple wall blow he managed to win his team’s round in a pub game on July 11.

However, he is adamant VALORANTS is more difficult than CS: GOwhatever the real reason, and although his team is do well in the scrimshis courage will be tested VALORANTS Champions Tour: last chance qualifier on August 1.
