VALORANT has been one of the fastest growing esports of the last several years. It seems like each trip around the sun sees it reach new heights. That's honestly great considering the state of esports currently in the minds of many.

As 2024 begins, looking back on VALORANT's success, in terms of community, in 2023 is rather eye-opening. With its availability on YouTube, Twitch viewership could have easily suffered.
