The skin market in Valorant is pretty poor right now, and there are literally a couple of good exclusive skins that are pleasing to the eye. In general, the skins are a little faded, and the cartoonish graphics of the game sometimes make it difficult to create something light and impressive. While in CS: GO this is the trick – due to the realistic graphics – all skins that are relatively simple in design look cool.

Recently, an article was also published on our site, in which another problem was raised related to CS: GO and Valorant – this is the transition of players from one discipline to another.

Valorant has a lot in common with CS: GO, in some important places this game is very different from CS: GO. However, the scale of the transitions was no greater than that from other games and the mass migration did not take place. Despite everything, CS: GO is still in trend and does not lose its popularity.
