DRX vs LOUD Preview and Prediction – Valorant Champions 2023

This year’s second DRX vs LOUD encounter will take place as one of the opening matches of Champions 2023 Group D

DRX have never beaten LOUD before in their previous two encounters, and you wouldn’t be alone to think this will be an easy win for the Brazilians. However, LOUD’s disappointing winless journey at Masters Tokyo has stirred up some doubts in the air, and the recent rumors about the team aren’t helping the case at all. However, on the other hand, DRX’s recent performance hasn’t been much eventful as they are suffering from role issues. As a result, this match will prove which team has been able to fix the internal issues better.


After the dominating run in the Pacific League’s Regular Season, the South Koreans have not returned to their glory yet, and Paper Rex have established themselves as the kings of APAC by winning VCT Pacific and coming #3 at Masters Tokyo. According to some analysts, DRX’s role issues between Foxy9 and Zest have played a part in the team’s poor performance at the Masters, and we expect them to have fixed those issues to secure a decent run at the Champions.

DRX vs LOUD Preview and Predictions - Valorant Champions 2023


Securing the Grand Final at LOCK//IN and then winning the Americas League – the Brazilians have shown dominance throughout most of 2023. Unfortunately, they faced humiliation at Masters Tokyo, leaving the event with a 0-2 record. Many rumors have blamed this fall in performance on internal roster issues, but let’s not forget that this squad includes some of the best players of Valorant we have ever seen, and they can go back to their glory at any time.
