I gotta let you know, the Honkai: Star Rail mind rot is actual. I’ve spent chunk of time enjoying it because it got here out, and I even downloaded the rattling factor on my telephone so I might rapidly pop in whereas travelling or in mattress. Fortunately, it is not fairly eaten into my day-to-day grownup obligations but—however the identical cannot be stated for professional Valorant group Ghost Commandos.

As reported by GamesRadar, the group had been compelled to forfeit a match through the second break up of the Challengers League in Taiwan and Hong Kong. The offender? In keeping with reporter Seulgi, one in every of their teammates had apparently failed to put in Valorant’s event consumer in time for his or her game towards S2 Esports, all as a result of they had been “too busy” enjoying HoYoverse’s house RPG. Truthfully, form of a temper.

Ghost Commandos got here again the following day on Could 3 to play towards ROA, although they sadly misplaced. Been spending an excessive amount of time grinding Stellar Jade to tug on Honkai’s banners and never sufficient time within the intention lab, maybe?

You’d suppose followers can be mad over such an enormous blunder from Ghost Commandos, however most appeared to grasp and recognize how tight a grip Honkai: Star Rail has on the plenty immediately. A reply to Seulgi’s tweet joked that the teammate was “too busy simping on digital waifus.” Even different Valorant professionals shared their sympathies—former banned participant Risorah stated “I do not blame them,” whereas participant and coach Fayde merely replied: “Comprehensible.”

Even when I did not really feel the Honkai demise grip (which I do), there are thousands and thousands of different gamers on the market who might most likely silently nod their heads and go “Yeah, I get it.” The game managed to amass over 20 million downloads on its first day, surpassing Genshin Impression’s day one download depend by three million. It has been a improbable expertise to date—from sniffing round trash cans and postboxes to completely annihilating problem content material with nothing however a lady and her large robotic. Let’s simply hope Ghost Commandos shifts its focus again to Valorant for a little bit bit first, eh?
