How Baiting His Fanbase Turned a CS:GO Major Winner into Valorant’s Biggest Streamer

When it comes to the current esports’ zeitgeist, no discussion is more contentious than the CSGO vs Valorant debate.

On one side you have CS fans who are passionate, experienced and think Valarante is child gaem. Then there are the Valorant stans who are fresh-faced, enthusiastic and see their tac shooter cousins, as a bunch of butthurt boomers.

With the lines in the sand firmly drawn, almost all notable content creators and pros have made their allegiances clear.

But there is one colossal content creator who has chosen to navigate this battlefield, a little…. differently.

A despicable heel of a head clicker, who despite having written his name into the history books of Valve’s fabled franchise, has seemingly become the poster boy for its rival IP. Of course, I’m talking about no other than Tarik “tarik” Celik.
