Paper Rex vs Gen.G Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Pacific League

The Week 8 of the VCT Pacific League kicks off with an exciting Paper Rex vs Gen.G matchup


These two teams have never encountered each other as Gen.G is a new arrival to the international scene. Paper Rex are the clear favorites of this game, considering the recent winning streak they are enjoying with their Duelist Ilya “something” Petrov. On the other hand, Gen.G’s current form isn’t looking good, even though they had a strong 4-0 start. Here are our predictions for this matchup –

Paper Rex

As expected, the Singaporeans have taken the second spot in the VCT Pacific ranking with a 5-2 record. Their incredible duelist player, something, has come as a blessing, as he is now the second-best player at VCT Pacific, right under MaKo from DRX. Also, their double-Duelist setup has been looking unstoppable in maps like Pearl and Split, as Paper Rex come from a 3-match winning streak. And not to mention, f0rsakeN has been contributing a lot to the team, as expected, picking up multiple different Agents from Initiator, Sentinel and Duelist roles.

Paper Rex vs Gen.G

Gen.G

The South Korean team’s incredible 4-0 start made them look like the second-best roster of the Pacific League. However, these recent three losses have set them back quite a lot, and their Playoffs spot is in question. While many would point their fingers at their Duelist player Meteor’s underperformance, it’s simply not the loss factor for Gen.G as Meteor also struggled in the matches he won. The remaining matches of VCT Pacific will be very important for this roster to win to not lose their Playoffs spot to some other team.
