DRX vs T1 Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Pacific Playoffs

The DRX vs T1 match will be the first Best of 5 in the Pacific League, with the winner proceeding to the Grand Final


Both of these squads have already confirmed their journey to Masters and Champions this year, and they are hungry for more as this Best of 5 will let one of them reach the Grand Final of this event. These South Korean rosters’ Regular Season game ended in a 2-0 win for DRX, even though Sayaplayer from T1’s side had one of his best series in that matchup. Therefore, unless the star Duelist gets enough assistance from his teammates, we are likely going to see another domination from MaKo’s crew.

DRX

The Kings of Pacific Valorant faced their second defeat in this League in the Upper Final, where Paper Rex dominated the South Koreans on both maps. MaKo had a slow series in that game, and Foxy9 continued to underwhelm on Duelist roles. Nonetheless, despite these exposed weaknesses, we see DRX winning this Bo5.
