The definition of GOAT in Esport games would be a person that has a huge fanbase but also achievements to back his "mount rushmore" status. Valorant potentially has a few, but none have been engraved yet.

Can We Get A Goat At Valorant Champions 2023

Los Angeles has been known as the city of angels, but GOATS as well. In sports terms, a lot of NBA superstars have made their careers so rich of success they've become one of the best in their era. Valorant can be no different, and with so much at stake at Champions 2023, a Goat might be born.

But, what is the definition of a Goat in Valorant?

Here are some examples:

  • Multiple Masters winner? - That would be FNATIC Chronicle
  • Invincible's style win at a Masters? - That would be SEN TenZ
  • Two-Time VCT Champions Winner? - Aspas, Less & saadhak could be candidates if they lift the trophy in Los Angeles

Who's A Goat Candidate At Valorant Champions 2023

Timofey "Chronicle" Khromov

Fnatic are a powerhouse right now, and it doesn't seem like anyone's stopping them, yet. Team effort is the one to blame for their success and the individual from Chronicle. Currently, his trophy cabinet is the richest in all of Valorant and has become the only player in Valorants three year history to win two Masters trophies.

With a Champions 2023 win, his status would probably be sealed, and he will be engraved as one of Valorant's best all-time players.

Here are his most important achievements so far:

  • Masters Tokyo Winner
  • Masters Berlin Winner
  • LOCK//IN São Paulo Winner
  • Valorant Champions 2021 Runner Up

LOUD aspas, Less & Saadhak

There is no splitting between these three, as they are all defending their Champions 2022 title in Los Angeles. Together with Sentinels's pancada & Sacy, they won last year's Champions 2022 and have a chance to defend it and write history in LA.

There is no better proving ground than to be a back-to-back Champions Winner, and having that, certainly puts you in the GOAT category.

Here are their most important achievements so far:

  • Valorant Champions 2022 Winner
  • VCT 2023: Americas League Winner
  • Stage 1 Masters Reykjavik Runner Up
  • LOCK//IN São Paulo Runner Up

Fnatic Boaster, Derke & Alfajer

As they are currently being predicted to be the winners based on odds made by bookmakers, these three can fill up their already filled trophy cabinet and make history. Fnatic are on fire, and their team has shown no flaws so far, and with their previous performance and success, they are potential GOATees if they manage to lift the trophy in LA.

Here are their most important achievements so far:

  • Masters Tokyo Winner
  • LOCK//IN São Paulo Winner
  • Masters Reykjavik (2021) Runner Up

Not as good as their teammate Timofey, but that Back to Back International Champions vibe sure hits hard.
