Hunter Mims, known as “SicK,” is a 22-year-old American former CS:GO player who had played for teams like Team SoloMid, Rogue, Misfits Gaming, Complexity Gaming, and Chaos Esports Club. Right now, he is playing Valorant for Sentinels.

Yesterday, SicK took his official Twitter account to reply to the tweet of another former CS:GO player who switched to Valorant, Ricky “floppy” Kemery, which was saying that Valorant is was funnier game compared to CS:GO.

In the post, Sick claimed that Valorant will overtake CS:GO one day and revealed why such a thing would happen. According to SicK, the consistent updates and improvements that Riot Games made are one of the reasons.

Also, the second reason is that these updates are making the game fresh and more enjoyable, which are one of the most important things that CS:GO has been missing for the past two years because of the same map pools.

Furthermore, SicK mentioned that Riot Games is thinking about the long-term success of the game all the time, and Valve couldn’t keep the gap close in the future because of that, which also make Valorant more popular in the future.

“Telling you man, one day Valorant will overtake CS:GO. Consistent updates and meta changes keeps the game fresh,” SicK said. “It might not happen for a while but I believe it will. Even if Valve steps up their development, Riot built a game for long term success.

Who Is SicK And What He Achieved So Far?

SicK’s most successful moments of his CS:GO career happened when he was playing for Misfits in 2017. They managed to reach out to the finals of Americas Minor Championship – Boston 2018 and semifinals of ESL Pro League Season 6 – Finals.

After joining Rogue, SicK had the same results he had with Misfits. Even though they were in the finals of DreamHack Open Austin and Americas Minor Championship – London in 2018, they couldn’t get the trophy.

Later on, he tried his luck with Complexity Gaming, but couldn’t bring the results immediately. Then, he joined Chaos Esports Club in March 2020. After a month, he decided to leave and switch to Valorant as he joined Sentinels.

With Sentinels, SicK managed to win some trophies in 2020, and they were one of the best teams in North America alongside 100 Thieves, FaZe Clan, and Team SoloMid. But, 2021 was a different story.

At their first tournament, VCT 2021: North America Stage 1 Challengers 1, Sentinels managed to win against Immortals. However, they couldn’t close up the series in the finals of Challengers 2 against Team Envy.

But, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo added to the team as a stand-in at VCT 2021: North America Stage 1 Masters, and they were the most dominant team in the tournament as they lift the trophy against FaZe Clan.

Afterward, they managed to win VCT 2021: North America Stage 2 Challengers 2 and VCT 2021: North America Stage 2 Challengers Finals, and managed to find a ticked to the biggest tournament in the Valorant history, VCT Masters – Reykjavík.
