My friend is trying to go pro in Valorant. Do you think he can make it?
Do you guys think it's better to play comp than unrated?
And do you believe comp shows the real abilities of a player or unrated can do so as well?

Valorant | How to Save Stupid Teammates as Sage
As the de facto support of the game, a lot is riding on your shoulders when you lock-in Sage. Whether it was under duress or out of choice that you chose her, now that you’ve pressed that button, the weight of your team’s well-being is on your shoulders. With the power you provide, you have the ability to make or break your team. This is a Sage guide so when the ball is passed to you, you don’t fumble it.
The single barricade ability in the game, the Barrier Orb, is a great tool to hamper opponents with. It’s a very diverse ability with many uses outside of what meets the eye. Whether it’s propping up allies, an alternative smoke, cover, or even to block people in, the 400 credits it costs to buy are well worth it. The great thing about Sage’s Barrier Orb is that can always be a use for it, be it for outplaying potential or covering your flanks.
Scenario 1: You can use this like Viper or Phoenix’s wall to block the line of sight
Scenario 2: Barrier Orb can be used to cover an angle when defending a site
Scenario 3: Use it to end up in uncanny positions to catch your enemies off guard
Scenario 4: Use it as cover to stall enemies as you retreat or revive someone
In conjunction with her Barrier Orb, the Slow Orb makes Sage one of the strongest stallers in the game. A large part of this can be attributed to the Slow Orb. While the ability may be fairly simple, the places that you put it and how you use it can be a fairly complicated matter. You could either slow your team and drag them down, or move your enemies into a mire where they will be like sitting ducks. This abilities’ greatest use is to halt enemy tempo. For instance, say that they have used a flash to clear out some space to rush onto the site, if you were to use a slow as they or after they flash, then they would have to use another utility ability because their initial attempt is halted by the 80 percent slow. This ability is a lot more useful to defender Sage than attacker, but it can still make or break games.
Scenario 1: Slow Orb can be used to stop an enemy rush onto a site
Scenario 2: It can be used to keep them inside of something, whether that is Brimstone, Killjoy, or Raze’s ultimate range.
Scenario 3: To cover an angle for 7 seconds
Scenario 4: To ensure someone doesn’t escape or hard swing from a corner that you know they’re in.
The Healing Orb is straight forward, you heal someone that got tagged. When deciding who to heal, You should heal when someone is missing at least 20 - 30 HP at least. The earlier you use this heal, the better so don’t be stingy with it in the first few seconds of the match. You won’t want to use it on someone in the middle of fire, because it will most likely be wasted on them, or at least the effectiveness will be greatly reduced. Either do it in a moment or peace, or in cover of some sort. If you or an enemy is tagged, the heal will be halted for 3 seconds.
Bring people back from the dead is a powerful ability and it should be used wisely. As Sage, it is your job to turn the tides of unfair fights, or even make fights unfair in your favor. With such an important ability in your hands, it is necessary to know how to use it when the time comes. If you’re just a one-tap god and you only need to use teammates for bait, these tips aren’t for you. That’s right, I am talking to you xX360NoScopeX, just go play Reyna.
For those of you trying to bring something tangible to the team, just sit back and listen. Reviving itself is a simple process, but the intricacy comes with who you revive, where you revive them, and when you revive them. So here are a few things to keep in mind when reviving a fallen friend:
Consider how near this person is to you
Consider how good the player is (You can gauge this by their score on the board)
Consider how well they communicate with you (If someone doesn’t have comms and another does and listens, it may be better to revive that player even if they aren’t as good)
Finally, always use some sort of cover, whether it is asking a teammate to smoke or using your Barrier Orb, you don’t want to be caught with your pants down while reviving a teammate.
Some contexts you might find yourself using Resurrection in:
Scenario 1: Use the Resurrection to even out an uneven trade or even to reverse a 1 for 1 trade
Scenario 2: It can be used to increase momentum to ensure what you might think is an “already won” round.
Scenario 3: You can use it to salvage your economy or save money for your teammates
Scenario 4: And probably the most hated one, you can use your teammates as bait for the enemies’ attention, though at higher ELO, people generally just shoot Sage first then deal with the reviving teammate so positioning is key.
So now we’ll cover some of the situations you will use Resurrection in, as it isn’t something you can use willy nilly.
~Tips & Tricks
1. Try to use your Barrier Orb either for yourself or teammates to put them in unexpected positions.
2. It is not a waste to use Barrier Orb to secure an ultimate orb point if it is your final one for revive, or any other teammate’s ultimate.
3. If you want to trap an enemy, don’t shoot your Slow Orbs directly at the enemy, but somewhere in the space between you and them or behind their path of retreat. There is an exception for this if your purpose is to bog down the enemy and not trap them, then just ignore this.
4. Don’t immediately heal after you or a teammate have been shot. Wait about 3 seconds after you’ve taken the damage.
5. When reviving an ally to as bait, put the ally in between you and the enemy, so it is obstructing their vision to you.
6. When deciding who to revive, check to see who has their ultimate ready and take this into consideration when reviving.
7. When choosing a site to go to, go where the most people on your team are so you can assist with heals, assuming everywhere else is accounted for.
8. With this, you should be better equipped to deal with knothead teammates intent on inting your games.
Safe stitching aspiring Sage mains. RIP Sage 6/2/2020—9/2/2020

Since I'm not into any of these games, I'm curious what are your opinions?
Vandal Vs. Phantom
There has been a raging debate going on over which rifle is better, the Vandal vs. the Phantom. So I'm here to just give you the stats, and only the stats on the 2 guns, so you can decide which is better.
Fire mode: Fully automatic
Head damage: 156 at 0-15 meters, 140 at 15-30 meters, and 124 at 30-50 meters
Body damage: 39 (at close range)
Leg damage: 33 (at close range)
Range: 15/30/50 meters
Magazine size: 30
Fire rate: 11
Fire mode: Fully automatic
Head damage: 160
Body damage: 40
Leg damage: 34
Range: 0-50 meters
Magazine size: 25
Fire rate: 9.75
So, those are basically the stats for the 2 guns, with these in mind, you can make the decision of which gun is right for you.
See you on the battlefield!
