Ardis "Ardiis" Svarenieks' Valorant career has already been a wild ride since the Latvian born player switched from CS:GO to Riot's new tactical shooter back in April.
In just three months. Ardiis has managed to take first place in the 10 tournaments he's competed in with a Best-of-3 finals setup. An impressive feat that saw him leaving the Fish123 squad and signing for G2 Esports, one of the most prestigious esports organisations in Europe.

His performances were so good that he was at one point accused of cheating, however, these accusations proved to be unfounded and G2's interest didn't waver and once Riot cleared his name, the confidence from the Spanish org paid off as Ardis led the team to victories at the Vitality European Open and WePlay! Invitational.
In a celebratory post-match interview after beating Fish123 (which are reportedly signing with Team Liquid), Ardiis set out to make a proper statement, claiming that he is, at the moment, untouchable in Valorant.
“I’m here 10 and 10 in finals ok? Not lost a best-of-3 in the whole of Valorant, including the beta! Listen, I walk on water in this game, simple as. It’s just the way it is!”
It's hard to argue against Ardiis being the best player Valorant in the world at the moment and G2 one of the best EU squads, yet fans are eagerly awaiting a clash against top teams in North America which includes opposition such as T1, TSM, Immortals, and Sentinels.
