Valorant, the 5v5 tactical shooter, has gained much praise from players all around. Many pro players retired from CS: GO to start their careers over with the new game. The 25-year-old Belgian sensation is by far one of the biggest names to make that switch. 

ScreaM looking to make a comeback

ScreaM had a sensational run in CS: GO. He has played with many of the top teams including G2 eSports, Titan, and Team Envy. ScreaM is still tied to GamerLegion but is an inactive member of the group.

He entered the professional scene in 2010 and has competed in both CS: Source and CS: GO. He has been ranked in the top 10 players list numerous times. Nicknamed “The One Tap Machine”, ScreaM arguably has the best headshot ratio of any CS title.

The Belgian had been streaming Valorant since its beta release. He also took part in the recent Fnatic Proving Grounds: Valorant Open Tournament and won along with his team. He played along with mixwell, Shaiko, Darfan, and KingMezii. Mixwell Cañellas will also be joining alongside ScreaM for their new adventure.

What is Valorant Pro Division?

Valorant Pro Division competitions are not affiliated with Riot Games or Valorant eSports. The Pro Division works on different ground and has three different groups. Open is playable for any gamer, whereas Challenger and Pro Division are invite-only.

Players jumping to Valorant are certainly becoming a huge blow to CS: GO. Veterans, former players, and even mid-tier players have made the switch from Valve’s flagship title. However, Valorant’s eSports scene is still heavily under development. Now that ScreaM has joined the new FPS title, he would be looking to make a comeback to the scene. We wish him the best of luck for his new adventure.
