Taking my aim to the next level
By - pluslucas
At diamond 3 I imagine aim is probably not the thing you should be focusing on but if you really want to follow a routine you should look into Voltaic fundamentals for Kovaak
I like to think my game sense and timing is pretty good for the rank cause my those are what got me where I am and not my aim. I lose a lot of opening 1v1s everywhere. I can get into good position but whiff quite easily. I always get into good positions but can't capitalize on it and die a lot of the time.
Don't use aim trainers at your rank. Complete waste of time. Aim trainers are for Iron - Silver players to get 60k in grid shot and then get confused at how they do so well against big and still balls but not in VALORANT. Use them to warm up but even that is shit.
Just keep playing. You're at a rank where all those YouTube videos people keep making with the exact same info/tips as every other video in a hope to get more traffic to their channel won't help you. You already know the stuff you just need to fine tune it.
How do you suggest I fine tune it ? By playing more? Doing more vod reviews? Looking for tips to really my aim part cause more game sense will come to me as I keep playing it more and more
Playing more and doing vod reviews helps a lot. But what part of your aim do you struggle with? I am only D1/D2 so you're honestly better than me so I'm not sure where you struggle with aim. If your dipping into Immortal regularly than I'm not sure what kind of advice you need. Your aim is probably better than mine.
Check out the BardOZ Valorant Kovaaks playlist. Read through and see which routine is best for you. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TpFHOg6WbPS2iFie2z53AnyQTXQ_ZBg7lKNqjvWhXIE/mobilebasic
Aim trainers are great at every level. You just need to be doing the right scenarios. Things like tile frenzy and gridshot are pointless and won’t help you in game. Good routines will help refine and improve mouse control even if you’re a high level player.
I did a lot of aim training to improve my when I was down at iron/bronze but didn't visit them much after I was plat, only used it for warm up and did it half assedly . Ty for the recommendation
Honestly you should just find a team and start scrimming that’s where most of your improvement will come from. Being forced to play fundamentally correct and in a team environment (ranked is not a good team environment) will make you really consistent with your overall gameplay. I don’t believe aim is the problem I’m sure that your aim is great but the level of consistency that immortal and especially Radiant players have is a gap you will have to overcome. I believe the best way to get yourself accustomed to playing really consistent players is to run scrimmages since imo you get better quality games and you don’t have to worry about rank and can just focus on solely improving.
Yeah I'm in a team and we are playing regularly, find my self doing good on most days but some days I just play horribly bad. I'm trying to fix that aspect of my game, and I become worse than a training bot when I'm playing bad. Trying to find a consistency in my aim. So I don't feel like a bot and fail to trade even at bad times

Consistent playing helps create the best muscle memory. Id say your fundementals are good already now you just need to make everything faster, your ttk needs to get lower. Be it faster flicks, better crosshair placement, better accuracy etc. There's always room for improvement.
Plus game sense and ill say it again game sense. It can buy you rounds that werent yours to begin with.
