In this article, we’ll drive you through Yay’s new and updated VALORANT settings that you need to know. So you can tweak your settings accordingly and get even better at the game.

Born in 1998, Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker is an American player who is playing VALORANT as a professional eSports player for OpTic Gaming. His journey to FPS competitive scene began with Call of Duty, but later, he made a switch to a more competitive scene in CS: GO. He is also known as Yayster.

Though he had a rough start in CS: GO and had a hard time breaking into the top tier. He eventually managed to get to the top with Complexity. However, after many ups and downs in NA CS: GO competitive scene and his mental health, he stepped down from competing in the game.

Not long after, VALORANT was announced, and like many others, Yayster saw an opportunity to make a name in the game. He invested his sweet time in VALORANT and became a very renowned player in a short time.

Unlike CS: GO, Yay didn’t take much time to become a force to be reckoned with. Because of his insane aim and gameplay, people started to call him the “el diablo.” He started his VALORANT career with ANDBOX and later joined Team Envy, where he had a pretty good run in VCT masters. In late 2021, he joined OpTic Gaming and is still playing on the active roster.
