Valorant is one of the biggest first shooters out there. The esports scene is gaining viewers in huge numbers. The vct circuit is proving itself to be worthy and vct qualifiers are giving chances to new players. Now today we are going to talk about Valorant’s best players in 2023. Because Valorant doesn’t have anything like Hltv’s top 20, it’s going to be based on MVPs and trophies that the players have won. Mind you that players earning will not be part of this list because it doesn’t matter in the team composition of which player has more prize money.
3.Nikita ‘Derke’ Sirmitev.
I am starting with the list with the most obvious player from Fanatic. This 20-year-old has been a phenomenal player for the last 3 years and has been a part of Team Fanatic for 2 years. Fanatic has been a powerhouse in Valorant’s esports scene since he joined the team. fanatic has winsome S-tier tournaments like Tokyo Masters, and VCT Lock-in SAU Paulo to just name a few. Nikita is the sniper of the team remaining agents like Jett and Raze like the rest of the superstars on the list. He switched from CS: go to Valorant in 2020 and going by his 1.20 rating in his matches he made a great decision.
2.Erick “aspas” santos:
The second player on the list is Erick aspas Santos. Now I know that his team’s performance wasn’t that great in the VCT Champions this year. It was a good journey but not great and up to the mark but don’t forget that “Loud” was the VCT Champions in 2022. Erick is Brazilian and you all know how passionately Brazilians feel about esports. Unlike Max Erick is a duelist playing with Jett and Raze mainly and Neon sometimes.
Aspas like everyone else first started playing just after the release of Valorant and joined Slick for his debut. Later on, in February 2022 the 20-year-old joined “Loud” and after his joining the team quickly became one of the best in valorant. Winning the biggest title in 2022 and vct America League this year. He got MVP in both of these tournaments. Aspas is really popular in the valorant community naming him the the best ever from Brazil. Currently, as the player break continues, we are yet to see another match from him after vct.
The difference between pro players and casual competitive players is most definitely skill and the other thing that separates pro players from us is that they have coaches to tell them when and where they are making mistakes reviewing their games and keeping them in line. If you are serious about Valorant and want to get better at the game and gain a competitive advantage, then Valorant coaching is for you.
1. Max “Demon1” Mazanov.
The 21-year-old is part of the current world champions “Evil Geniuses”. Demon 1 is not a game switcher like most other pros who shifted from CSGO to Valorant. He comes from the United States and is renowned for his mechanical skills in the game. Max is one of the most immense rising talents in valorant. He first shows signs of eliteness in vct masters Tokyo where Evil Geniuses lost the game to Fanatic by a 3:0 scoreline. Demon1 also got the MVP for this year’s Vct masters. The thing that sets demon1 apart from the rest of the players is he doesn’t solely rely on a single agent but main two to three agents so he can be comprehensive at times. Currently, his highest KD agent is Kill Joy. other than VCT Champions demon 1 also has other tournament wins under his belt like Knights Arena and Dream Hack Community Clash just to name a few. Although some of his wins are C-tier tournaments. He is still a young player, but he has already accomplished a lot in his career, and he is sure to continue to be a dominant player for years to come.
