Paper Rex’s Duelist Wang “Jinggg” Jing will be completing his mandatory National Service requirement in 2024 as a Singaporean citizen
Paper Rex are enjoying a dominant run in their 2023 VCT Season, and a lot of it was possible for their talented Raze player Wang “Jinggg” Jing, who, alongside Ilya “something” Petrov, brought Duelist prowess to the team. However, the 20-year-old player won’t be able to participate in the team’s 2024 VCT journey to complete his mandatory National Service.
Paper Rex’s head coach Alexandre “alecks” Sallé confirmed this to Round Up Gamers, saying, “Jinggg is leaving PRX at the end of this season and will not be participating in the 2024 season,” adding, “We would like to send him to the army as soon as possible. That way, he will leave the army sooner.”
Singapore employs a conscription system where all qualified citizens and second-generation permanent residents are required to do military services for the country.
