Valorant streamer and creator @royalgftw has done something nasty. Going from unranked to Immortal (he placed Silver 2) all with just a Classic (yes just a pistol)

For royalG, those 136 hours on Classic were undoubtedly well spent. For him and his fans, Christmas has definitely come early.
Valorant fans around the world are utterly flabbergasted about how on earth was royalG able to play such a competitive shooting game with only a pistol. Well, there seems to be a method to his madness.
Many of his hardcore fans pointed out that he avoided several things that can be a player’s demise. However, the most important one was that he avoided peaking. Moreover, he patiently waited and analyzed to get the best shot.
On the other hand, some fans have deemed him to be the single best person to partner up with, and we can certainly see why they would want that.
Many are excited to know what’s next for him. Will he try his hand at getting to the highly exclusive Radiant tier? Well, the verdict seems mixed; while it is technically not impossible, the chances of that are few and far between.
This is mainly because only 500 players around the globe get to be in that tier, so as you can imagine, the competition is steep. Would royalG be able to get to that Valorant tier with only a pistol?
Valorant is a free-to-play first-person tactical hero shooter developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows. Teased under the codename Project A in October 2019, the game began a closed beta period with limited access on April 7, 2020, followed by a release on June 2, 2020. The game is available on PC.
