With the addition of the Replay feature, what will be the state of competitive gameplay?

On one hand, there are some in the community who consider this game to be the best FPS eSport title out there. While on the other, there are players who believe this title is filling in for CS: GO, Overwatch, and more.

Now, this is true that the title features gameplay elements from both. The title has been quick in building a loyal player base for itself. This has happened mainly because the devs at Riot have been all ears for whatever complaint the player base has had. This is something the fans have never seen in the case of, say, CS: GO. Furthermore, Valorant is currently one of the only titles with an effective anti-cheat system (looking at you, Warzone).
