Counter-Strike Global Offensive has a separate fan base altogether. No game can ever overtake its popularity. Even celebrities spend thousands of Euros on it for their favorite accessories. The game has grasped people’s undivided attention for the better half of a decade. So, it is not a surprise to see the extent people go to for in-game cosmetics and other items.
While CS:GO’s popularity remains unmoved, competition has taken birth in the form of Valorant. Most pro players have been quitting their games to move on to Valorant. Even world champions are doing so, simply because Valorant offers much more scope with regards to the gameplay.
