The LG UltraGear Faceoff is pitting top players and streamers from a variety of FPS games against each other in Valorant, to decide which game is the best experience for dominating Riot’s new tactical shooter. Here’s how to tune in and catch all the action.
Teaming up with Tempo Storm, LG want to determine who has the best FPS skills in Valorant, coming from CSGO, Call of Duty, Overwatch or Fortnite.
Valorant is often seen as a mix of CS:GO and Overwatch, with tight, tactical gunplay mixed with hero abilities for each character. But, which type of player has the biggest advantage?
To decide, players will be represented by a captain with a different gaming background. For example, former Overwatch pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel will lead out the Overwatch team.
