idk if its worse than BR or a different region, but for most part apart from Pros in very high elo - ranked is just for fun video game played by kids. I think most pros forget that especially those who get paid thousands of $$$ playing the game that the rest of the kids playing it are doing it for fun.

"listen chat, once the franchised teams start playing and realize they lack a quality sentinel player, who will they choose? im waiting for that"

tbh its amazing to see the skill gap between immortal players and pros.. its almost as much as a bunch of silvers and immortals

posted 1 week ago

currency valuation has nothing to do with it, like japanese yen is 25x BR but Japan is more developed. Its just the fact that Sentinels and some other NA orgs can afford to pay players extravagant wages and still turn a profit because of the amount of brand endorsements, merch sales and other revenue. If Valorant keeps growing in Brazil, China, India etc the trend will change and you will see players move to these regions in the future.

beating a franchised team shouldn't really be a thing/stat to care about until the actual thing kicks off and players have settled in. maybe it will count more next year

Did you see how Rawkus and others involved in strats didnt say a word? Cause that video was a joke/meme and its obvious Shaz cant take a joke. Moreover even if you give benefit of doubt to Shaz saying he was promised a spot for allowing shroud to play LCQ, how does Shaz explain the pathetic performances year round which put SEN in the position to play LCQ which they hardly qualified for? He takes no blame for anything, ever.

Going by the logic, zombs could say he played according to Shaz's strats and expected to keep his place, so Shaz did him dirty by getting rid of him once they lost. I would never want a guy like Shaz in any team irrespective of what skills he brings to the table.

the list of players accused/guilty of throwing, match fixing is too long. if they wanted him out, they could've taken action last year

"the game doesnt care for me, takes my money and my time so this is how i hit back"

posted 3 weeks ago

i think this is streamer games, so only radiant level ranked players have the opportunity to stream/queue snipe which makes the probability of having 2 throwers on opposite teams in the same match very low.

posted 3 weeks ago

i mean alot of people if they had a chance to make money while playing a video game - would love to do it. Not everyone is lucky enough to be tarik or tenz to blow up. Not to mention people like Marved have thrown lower tier CS games before they became main stream. I am not the one to judge

posted 3 weeks ago

there are obviously alot of players with 1000s of hours of CS and Val but never amounted to anything - kids in Immortal lobbies who neither have a stream nor went pro now making money through crypto betting/throwing on streamer games and making $$. yall hate them or respect the hustle?

oh yh i aint trynna defend his shit takes and most of it is denial.. but at the same time i take no criticism of my work from nobodies either.. if one is opinionated about valorant but not good enough to do any work and play at the tier 1 level - their opinions belong in the trash called vlr with the rest of the peasants - so i understand where he comes from when he doesnt heed to the opinions of his chat

traded was toxic to tarik and dasnerth too tbh - somehow that got cut and didnt make it to youtube.. guess someone who really wanted to say that to Shaz but couldnt reach Radiant and Q snipe him and say it to his face found some satisfaction through traded. Allllllll goood

It is not unfair.

If your concern is allowing NBs and Trans will allow men to "finesse" the system by just saying "hey im a girl hehe" and winning trophies - that does not happen. The social taboos/stigmas and transphobic comments that these people have to go through on a daily basis will fuck your mental up to the degree that no gamechanger/masters/champions trophy can soothe. It simply does not happen and we know for sure that people like C9 Bob are 1000% trans. We can have this conversation when a single "finesse" instance comes up in Riot. Until then, these conversations and questions will always have a transphobic undertone - questioning their right to identify as men/woman and competing in a competition where there is no physical attribute so no real advantage.

If you are trying to say lesser women play pro scene compared to casual ranked, that just proves my point.

posted 3 months ago

to add to what you've said - video games have historically been conditioned to be a "boy's activity" which has discouraged everyone else to participate. Its a classic case of society deciding activities one should partake in depending on their gender assignment - which is also why the study is biased even if it has a small sample size of 22. Professional esports is hopefully changing that, and given there is no physical attributes like weight involved in esports, I think women (cis or tran) can even outdo men (cis or tran).

ty for breaking stereotypes and making a W agent from India

I work as a software eng, where i am surrounded by Indians and the stereotypes in the west about them having a "funny" accent, bad body odor, "women are pretty but men are ugly" are soooo bullshit. Indians have to be one of the most smartest, down to earth motherfkers i've met - they dont even make much fuss about all the racist serotypes like they should.(Definitely not covered by Asian hate movement). Its nice to see most Indians i know are happy about the accent of Harbor aswell.

W RIOT
cant wait to play harbor

any fan who is disappointed has and will never be offered the kind of money that Sacy has been offered to do something he is passionate about so they are malding. you need to be happy for the player - you need to understand its business and they need to take financial decisions... again if u were or will ever be in such a situation u will understand

couldnt care less for the "core" team. I dont get how dapr or shaz were expecting to be franchised after a year round shit performance with no results to show - especially when champions participating teams got disband and most of their players were LFT. It would have been a shame if those players didnt find a team, but im glad they all did and some of them like yay, pancada, sacy are making big $$$$. totally deserved

posted 3 months ago

In franchised league, there are 25 (THATS TWENTY FUCKIN FIVE) spots and when u break down by role its 5 spots up for grabs. If THE BEST of THE BEST dont play then its a sham. None of the core SEN players have shown any evidence in the form of results in the past year+. They did not deserve to be franchised, especially when so many players are out in the market. It should not come down to who has clout. HOW do u explain players who did extremely well and qualified for champs being left out so ur fav streamer can play?

If he had a long conversations with the coaches, he 1000% knew which way the narrative is going, he might still be waiting for final confirmation but nothing beats the fact that Rob told him that he is free to look elsewhere. He had enough hints to KNOW but he decided not to listen and kept hoping for the best - which is just copium.

Shaz should just thank the org for the time and move on a good note, but he keeps feeding to the trolls on the internet. In my book, for his attitude - he is un-employable

posted 3 months ago

NRG, EG did better than SEN in the past year - 90% of their roster is cut. Will from 100T qualified for champs - got cut from his team. C9 mitch had better matches than TenZ in the last year - cut from the team. The list goes on for players who played better than TenZ and Shazam and they dont have a chance in franchised league

BUT somehow supporters of Tenz and Shaz think they deserve to play in the franchised league. If they are so good, they should be able to prove themselves just like everyone else has to.

yay mentioned in his stream that most top level players in NA make around 350kish. Yay could be making 400ish but I am sure this is not base salary, surely has performance linked variable bonuses and im not sure if they provide shares of the org.

out of topic - Riot pays similar salaries to their senior software engineers, designers etc - so if ur not radiant at this game, try coding :)

thats what they paid C9 for the contract. i think OP is asking about salary or TC per annum.. yay mentioned most of the elite top players in NA make around 350k

posted 3 months ago

they shouldnt just go for xset.. zekken and dephh maybe but now that C9, 100t and NRG - with ardiis look so strong.. I feel if language barrier isnt an issue just go after aspas or someone from BR. Maybe even PRX or DRX players if they are willing to relocate. Maybe someone strong enough from EU aswell..

SEN didnt drop Zellsis or even Shroud technically. Zellsis was on loan from V1 for LCQ and his contract is with V1. I dont think shroud will play T2 tbh

posted 3 months ago

i dont agree, i feel there is abundance of "GREAT" talent + untapped young talent which can win champs with the right team setting. If you believe in the idea of collecting the "best" for each role and slapping them together - u are setting urself up for a disappointment. 100T was a young team and they beat fnatic lol - you can say "never remotely close to the level of quality needed to win champions" to any team that wasnt in the Top 4. If u look at teams like Faze, Guard with players like babybay, jonahP, dicey, moose and u think they are not good enough to win champs - then i have nothing to say to u

posted 3 months ago

its supply and demand bro - point is they can still win the whole thing without paying huge and running after stars like yay. The supply of great talent is HUGE and the seats are limited + every player in ascension is going to go after your seat. If you play the long game like EG in this situation - you can draft those contracts like you please, pay what you can AND win.

posted 3 months ago

you really think there are only 20 top tier players in NA? When you break down role-wise there are MORE top tier players than there are slots available in the franchised league. Orgs are the alpha in the franchised world, and every player is in danger of losing their job. There is no hurry to pick a team lol, they can wait and play the long game and still end up with a star studded team with players who are greatful to be involved in a T1 league.

posted 3 months ago

EG is being smart. Its not like there are a limited number of players so orgs have to hurry and bid the highest. Even if all the 4 orgs lock their 6 thats just 24 players - EG can swoop up any player for any price on their terms after that because most players will prefer T1 Franchised league over playing in ascension league.

posted 3 months ago

EG is being smart AF with their roster tho - they havent picked anyone it seems (source : george). They know there is too much fish in the sea and they are letting the big fish go (yay,cryo etc). They will still most likely end up signing REALLY good players at their own terms - lower salary etc

posted 3 months ago

True lol. He is NOT tarik or shroud ... The only reason Shaz has viewers and making the money he is, because of the popularity of SEN and him being the IGL and winning the first international masters... If you wanna guess where he would be if he just streamed, look at Wardell - that was Shaz's competitor during CS days..

Thanks for this thread. Someone who qualified for LCQ gets removed - only 1 thread
