DRX vs Paper Rex Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Pacific Playoffs

The DRX vs Paper Rex matchup will decide the first grand-finalist of the VCT 2023 Pacific Playoffs


The clash of the pacific titans is ahead of us as DRX take on their long-time rival, Paper Rex, in the upper finals of the playoffs. We call it a rivalry, but the DRX fans may perceive it otherwise, considering the resoundingly favorable track record against the SEA giants. The fast-paced and unique playstyle of PRX, while intriguing, has thus far failed to pose a significant threat to the Korean powerhouse. Here is how we think the match will play out.

DRX

Following the 1st place finish in the league stage, DRX started their playoff journey from where they left it, beating Paper Rex 2-1. Beyond securing a spot in the playoffs, this win held additional significance for Stax and his team, allowing them to avenge their only loss during the league stage. Stax’s calling has been top-notch throughout the event, while the entire team, notably Buzz, is in excellent form. This remarkable synergy and individual brilliance were pivotal in their qualification for the upcoming Masters event.

DRX vs Paper Rex

Paper Rex

Paper Rex wrapped up the league stage with a 7-2 record. Their playoffs journey began on an equally special note as they blew T1 off the server in the upper semi-finals. With that win, the best of SEA secured the ticket to Tokyo. However, the upcoming match still bears significance as it will decide seed placements for the Masters event.
