Riot Games, the same company that created League of Legends, has developed VALORANT, a first-person shooter that many expect will succeed in any game released under the Riots banner, such as Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics.
FURIAs Khalil Khalil Schmidt went even further, claiming that VALORANT might outlive the League's fame and fortune. "I personally believe that VALORANT might outperform League of Legends," he said in an interview with Sportskeeda.
VALORANT is already on a steady path to guaranteed glory, taking into account all international VALORANT tournaments hosted by Riot, including VALORANT Champions and VCT Masters. On top of that, Riot is clearly investing a lot of time and effort to monitor and fix bugs in VALORANT in order to see it in its best light.
Although VALORANT has advanced in the last several years due to regular updates and game balancing, it still has a long way to go before it can reach the great heights of League. Not only is League a well-established esport that has existed for over a decade now, but it is also Riots' first child that will never be forgotten.
With little to no competition at their backs, it would be best for both League and VALORANT to maintain their lead in the championship.
