Whether or not it supplants CS: GO is something we have to wait and watch. However, with the rising tide of modern-day gaming, there is a fair chance that it might. An insightful video from Esports Talk has revealed the finer details of these professional organizations. 

One of the very first teams ready to go with their roster is T1. Their approach looks to be quite radical. Unlike others, they are planning to go all-in with their efforts. They are going to have three rosters in total. One North American, one South Korean, and another academy team.

At the same time, we have also seen that other teams are officially letting their players switch over to Valorant. In an interview with T1 CEO Joe Marsh, several future plans came into focus.

Their strategy looks to be top-notch. However, a lot depends on what Riot Games chooses to impose in terms of regulations. Since it should be fair to every organization alike, there is a good chance that this won’t fly.

“A set of players that are up and coming can feed to our main roster.”This statement at once confirms two significant things. T1’s teams will be in a constant state of change, where new players will always have a way in.

Subsequently, a younger generation of gamer will grow up playing Valorant. For those of us still arguing whether it is the “CS: GO killer” or not, it is about time we face facts. Teams like TSM, Sentinels have already started building their arsenal. It looks like Valorant is here to stay for quite a long time and define the new era of FPS tactical shooters.
