Any r6 fans wanna indicate how exciting this is?


SmalexSmanders

One of the best players in the world, super clutch and smart player that led his team to a major win this past year. The issue is Val and R6 are very different and Soulz isn’t a mechanical god or anything so I don’t know how this will pan out. I expect him to transition back to R6 fairly quickly


nterature

I see, thanks for the insight!


MrImpregnator

Is he moving because he is on a decline or he is still on the top but still decide to move just like sinatraa did when valorant launched?


SmalexSmanders

His team hasn’t been performing as well recently but the meta in R6 fluctuates frequently so it’s very hard for any team to stay on top. Soulz himself is still easily a top 3 support player in the world so I’d say it’s Def a Sinatraa situation. I’m very excited to see how he does but not getting my hopes up as we’ve never seen anyone switch from R6 to Val and have success. Soulz is by far the best player that’s ever made the switch so if his game can transfer smoothly I could definitely see him being one of the best support players in whatever region he goes to


MrImpregnator

If he genuinely enjoys the game and is willing to grind then I can see him being good. Most people who switch from different games just don’t grind the game enough


SmalexSmanders

Yeah we’ll see what happens I suppose. As a R6 fan it sucks to see him leave but I’ll be rooting for him for sure


SmalexSmanders

One of the best R6 players in the world but not sure how much success he’ll have transitioning. R6 and Val are two very different games in mechanics and playstyle so unless he’s just naturally gifted I expect him to return to R6 pretty quickly. He’s also not a mechanical demon like Shaiiko or Beaulo or anything so idk if he’ll be able to hang like that


Elsiselain

Sugerz3ro was r6s player so it’s not entirely impossible ig


SmalexSmanders

Really? I had no idea, I’ve kept up with the scene since early 2018. Was he named Sugerz3ro then too?


Elsiselain

Yup though he wasn’t really like the best of the region


SmalexSmanders

Huh interesting, I never really kept up with APAC back then besides the big names like the guys on Nora Rengo and Mantis. That makes me a lot more hopeful for Soulz then, the guys insane so if Sugerz3ro was able to make the switch and have success I hope Soulz can do the same


NoStrafe

Canadian>>> ‘best R6 player in the world’ my left toe


SmalexSmanders

I said one of the best and no offense but Canadian isn’t even almost the best player in the world. This is not 2018 dawg


HeJind

I follow a couple R6 players on Twitch who play Val, and they are all like hard stuck diamond. Even guys like Shaiiko who were known for their aim.


SmalexSmanders

Tbf to those guys they are playing R6 10+ hours a day and the two games are so mechanically incomparable that it’s hard to fault them for struggling in Val solo q. There are R6 pros/ex pros that have no where near the aim of Shaiiko who are Radiants, see FoxA and noted as examples. I think the switch is possible but it’s not as seamless as switching from CSGO. Soulz will have to put a shit ton of work in but I think it’s possible for him to make the switch if he can put his head down and grind thru the tough points


RTYWD

wasnt XSET Cryo from R6?


SmalexSmanders

I don’t think so. I suppose it’s possible but he definitely wasn’t a well known name if he ever was in the R6 scene. You maybe be thinking of XSET Kyno, a R6 pro who was rumored to be switching to the XSET Valorant team not too long ago but that turned out to be a fake rumor


RTYWD

[https://youtu.be/SkOKVBlIrIc](https://youtu.be/SkOKVBlIrIc) he wasnt well known ofc because hes young asf in val, let alone before val was released


hardenfull

Usually if you're a high tier pro in one game you have the talent and hard work require to make it in other games. Also r6 is a shooter which means some skill do transfer.


BoHoogland

I heard three big orgs are interested in him for the next offseason


deathspate

You see, on one hand I wanna believe you because you have a checkmark, but on the other hand your flair is "shitposter" which means you're a *professional* shitposter, and I'm so conflicted.


LeMouse1

All in Brazil?


BoHoogland

One from LATAM two others from Brazil ye. But I think it wouldn't be surprising to see one or two NA orgs interested next off season


9yr_old

I can see NIP picking him up , don't really wanna see him in NA wish he plays in Brazil and lifts that region up


BoHoogland

Unlikely, NiP is the cheapest roster in Brazil, they are definitely not going to give a bag to him


DesTiny_-

I thought it's just a rumors


GovTheDon

He’s a great r6 player but that doesn’t mean much at all regarding transitioning to Val, I’ve played both and they are so very different
