How a Jaded CS:GO Journeyman Became Valorant's Most Feared Player

  • How a Jaded CS:GO Journeyman Became Valorants Most Feared Player


    No matter what game you play, just about every top team you’ll face has that one standout player. Someone who is capable of putting the team on their back and getting the job done in just about any situation.

    Some of these stars are flashy highlight machines, capable of pulling off plays that most of us could only dream of, while others pride themselves on consistency, letting their accolades speak for them.

    Going up against players with huge reputations like this can be nerve-wracking because there's always a strong possibility that they’ll produce something spectacular.

    But in the brief history of Valorant esports, no single player has struck fear into the hearts of their opposition quite like Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker. The gasp-inducing aim god of Team Envy, whose reputation for collecting souls has earned him the nickname: El Diablo.
