Streamers have been offering their thoughts on the new shooter from Riot Games, and not everyone is aboard the Valorant hype train.

Turner “Tfue” Tenney has expressed his thoughts on Valorant during a Twitch stream, calling the title “boring” and an “old man’s game”.

The new tactical 5v5 FPS from Riot Games has recently entered a closed beta, allowing selected players and streamers to try out the title ahead of release this summer.

While Riot’s past pedigree with League of Legends has many expecting it’ll become the next big shooter, looking like a cross between CS:GO and Overwatch, it seems it probably won’t pull away any of Fortnite’s audience.

Tfue, who is considered one of the best Fortnite players, streamed Valorant to give the title a spin - although his early impressions weren’t exactly glowing.

Speaking on stream about Valorant, Tfue said: “I don’t know if I’ll play this game much. It’s pretty f**king boring dude. I don’t like playing on a team with people. I just like 1v1.

“I mean, it’s a good game. It’s just boring. It’s for like older people for sure.”

Asked his verdict on the shooter later in the stream, he added: “It’s just so f**king slow. Kids aren’t going to want to play this.

“It’s more of like a patient, strategy-based old man’s game, you know?”

Tfue’s frustrations with the title however aren’t exactly surprising considering Fortnite and other Battle Royale titles are more immediate in thrills - which isn’t exactly what Riot is going for with Valorant.

The closed beta has so far been a huge success too, making history with the highest amount of concurrent viewers on Twitch ever - although many of which will simply be trying to score a beta key drop for access to the title.

Valorant is set to be released on PC in summer 2020.
