Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has been an evergreen competitive shooter for almost a decade now. However, its popularity has been on the decline for the past few months. As an alternative, the gaming community has seen Riot’s FPS game Valorant take over the competitive shooter space. As someone who has been grinding the game for some time now, Dr Disrespect had a few words to say about the rise of Valorant.

Valorant is a fresh scene, according to Dr Disrespect

Doc might not have any personal plans for Valorant, but he did have a few wise words for all the esports organizations out there. He feels that Riot’s FPS is the perfect investment opportunity out there right now.

It’s the up-and-coming competitive shooter, right? That’s already here. If I was a big investor, if I was an esports team tr organization that hasn’t tapped into Valorant, I don’t know what you’re doing.”

Coming from a person who has spent almost half his life around competitive FPS gaming, these are gold words. Still, fans are curious to know how serious Doc is about his own advice.

The Call of Duty veteran has often teased owning a Call of Duty League team in the past few months. He had also gotten a jersey made for his ‘upcoming’ team. Naturally, with all his recent sponsorship deals, including the one with FanDuel, Doc is also a potential investor.

Getting a seat in the CDL, at least for the next couple of years, is close to impossible. Therefore, with all the popularity around Valorant, and the official majors, such as the Valorant Champions Tour, it would be a perfect investment opportunity for Doc himself.
