T1 vs DRX Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Pacific League

The T1 vs DRX game will be a fight for better seeding in the Playoffs


As T1 and DRX approach their last game of the Regular Season, both teams have confirmed their spot in the Playoffs. Before this Superweek, you would have expected DRX to win this easily. However, MaKo and his teammates are coming from their first VCT Pacific defeat, while T1 are enjoying a long streak of wins. Therefore, without a doubt, this battle between two mighty South Korean rosters will be competitive, and we have a challenging prediction to make.

T1

Switching from North America to South Korea has been the best decision for T1’s Valorant roster, as they are now dominating the Pacific League with strong members like Sayaplayer and Munchkin on the lineup. Their first match of this Superweek was a close game against another formidable opponent ZETA DIVISION, where the Jett players of T1 helped their team close the series in a 2-0. With the Duelists on good form and the team’s current 4-match winning streak, this roster can beat the strongest Pacific team in this match.

T1 vs DRX

DRX

The seemingly unbeatable roster was vanquished this week as the South Koreans faced the biggest upset of this event against Team Secret. Foxy9 was not present in that game, and BuZz was in charge of playing Jett, who started well on the first map but had a terrible 0.43 rating on the second. However, they are still the best team in the standings and with MaKo continuing to be such a valuable player, we are predicting a win for DRX.
