Disguised Toast: Valorant's Competitive Scene to Get More Expensive
The popular Disguised Toast streamer has shared their thoughts on what the future may hold for Valorant’s competitive scene, and it’s not looking good – at least financially. While the NA Challenger scene will continue to produce some of the best League of Legends players in the game, Disguised Toast suggests that the cost of talent will only continue to climb.
“The Challenger scene is the breeding ground for the best talent in the world,” Disguised Toast says. “But it’s becoming a much more expensive place to get started.” The streamer goes on to explain that, given the current state of the NA Tier 2 market in Valorant, they believe that the costs of entry to the Challenger scene will continue to escalate in the coming years.
Disguised Toast’s comments imply that the cost of talent will rise not only in the Challenger scene but across the entire spectrum of competitive play. Valorant’s competitive landscape is poised to become even more financially demanding in the years to come.
“The Challenger scene is a proving ground to get into the LCS,” Toast continues. “But the cost to prove yourself is only getting higher.” The streamer touches on a recent wave of player transfers, which they believe is a direct result of the increasing demands of the competitive scene.}
