T1 vs Gen.G Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Pacific Playoffs

The T1 vs Gen.G game will be a fight between two South Korean rosters who once carried the North American banner


This is the final Upper Round 1 match, where the winner will join Paper Rex in the Upper Semifinal. While these squads’ last encounter in this event ended with Gen.G’s victory, T1 are looking much stronger right now with their recent winning streak and, therefore, are the favorites of this Best of 3. Before we start predicting on this matchup, here’s a fun fact – both of these names were once part of the North American scene where they struggled to make a big splash. 

T1

With an impressive 6-3 run in the Regular Season, T1 became the third-best team in the standings. While their last week’s match against fellow South Korean DRX ended with a 2-0 defeat, Sayaplayer had an unbelievable series, picking up the most kills in the server and staying miles ahead of his teammates. Now, the rest of T1 need to catch up to their Duelist player to ensure a solid beginning in the Playoffs.

T1 vs Gen.G

Gen.G

Gen.G ended their 4-0 beginning with an opposite 0-4 end, as they have been struggling a lot in recent three weeks, even against weaker names like Talon. Coming from this losing streak and barely making it to the Playoffs isn’t the best news for this South Korean team, and they are likely going to face a quick farewell at this stage without bringing better changes to their gameplay.
