VCT Pacific

The Korean team GEN.G had a tough day of gaming, but they managed to eliminate two very strong teams from the VCT Pacific Kickoff competition. In a fierce and tense day, Team Secret and ZETA Division fought tooth and nail in their matches, clinging desperately to their chances and hopes of participating in Masters Madrid. In the first match, Team Secret engaged in an uncompromising game against GEN.G, where the “Adobo Gang” displayed their strength right from the first round on the Breeze map. However, GEN.G, relying on their experience, read the game and turned it around. On the next map, Lotus, Team Secret couldn’t replicate their success and suffered a 13-9 defeat.

However, it was on the decisive Icebox map that both GEN.G and Team Secret showcased their willpower and resilience as the match went into overtime. In the final round of extra time, newcomer Noel “NDG” De Guia from Team Secret made a devastating backstab and ruthlessly eliminated the opponent. It was perhaps the key moment of the entire encounter, and Kim “Lakia” Jong-min executed it perfectly.

Second match for Secret

In the second match, the Filipino powerhouse, Team Secret, showcased their exceptional prowess as they swiftly dismantled ZETA Division on the Icebox map, leaving their opponents in the dust with an overwhelming score of 13-1. At first glance, it seemed as though there would be no contest whatsoever. ZETA Division appeared to be utterly absent, allowing Team Secret to assert their dominance and dictate the pace of the game at will. With every move, Team Secret executed their strategies flawlessly, leaving no room for their opponents to mount any form of resistance. It was a one-sided affair that demonstrated the vast gap in skill and coordination between the two teams.


However, the narrative took an unexpected turn as the match progressed. Against all odds, ZETA Division mustered an incredible display of resilience and determination on the second map. They refused to back down without a fight, effectively slowing down the tempo of the game and disrupting Team Secret’s momentum. The battle became a grueling test of skill and strategy, with each round fiercely contested by both sides. It was a testament to the unwavering spirit of ZETA Division that they managed to keep the scoreline close, refusing to let Team Secret run away with an easy victory.

Despite the challenges posed by their opponents, Team Secret showcased their adaptability and composure. They weathered the storm and gradually pulled ahead in the scoreline, showcasing their ability to seize crucial moments and capitalize on their opponents’ weaknesses. With their unwavering determination and strategic brilliance, they secured their second victory with a respectable score of 13-8 on the Ascent map. This hard-fought win not only highlighted Team Secret’s individual skill and teamwork but also underscored their mental fortitude in the face of adversity.

It’s worth noting that this match held significant implications for both teams. For Team Secret, it could have potentially marked a premature exit from the Kickoff stage of the tournament. The pressure to perform and secure a victory was palpable, and they rose to the occasion, showcasing their resilience and fighting spirit. ZETA Division, on the other hand, fought tooth and nail to extend their tournament journey, refusing to bow out without leaving their mark. Their valiant efforts and spirited performance, despite the eventual defeat, should be commended.

In conclusion, the second match between Team Secret and ZETA Division was a rollercoaster of emotions, packed with thrilling moments and unexpected twists. It exemplified the unpredictable nature of competitive gaming and the relentless pursuit of victory displayed by both teams. Ultimately, it was Team Secret who emerged triumphant, but the battle waged by ZETA Division will not be forgotten, as they pushed their opponents to their limits and fought with unwavering determination.


The match that decided everything

The third match of the evening between ZETA and GEN.G proved to be the pivotal moment that determined the fate of both teams, as well as that of Team Secret. Team Secret was hanging on to the hope that ZETA would emerge victorious in this series, providing them with a lifeline to cling onto for a spot in the playoffs. However, it became evident right from the start on the Icebox map that Tiger Nation was determined to leave no stone unturned in their quest for victory. Taking advantage of ZETA’s prior experience against Team Secret, GEN.G executed their strategies flawlessly, showcasing their superior skill and game sense. The end result was a convincing win for GEN.G, with a scoreline of 13-6 on the Icebox map.

As the action shifted to Ascent, it became a shining example of Tiger Nation’s dominance. A dominant first half saw GEN.G establish a commanding lead of 10-2, effectively turning the tide of the game and shattering Team Secret’s dreams of qualifying for Masters Madrid. The final blow on the Ascent map came in a critical moment when Hiroki “hiroronn” Yanai was unable to defuse the spike in the face of relentless pressure from three GEN.G players: Kim “t3xture” Na-ra, Kim “Karon” Won-Tae, and Kim “Meteor” Tae-o. It was a testament to the coordination and skill of the GEN.G squad.

With the conclusion of the match, all three South Korean teams – DRX, GEN.G, and T1 – alongside the VCT Pacific 2023 champions, Paper Rex, have successfully secured their spots in the playoffs. This sets the stage for an intense and highly anticipated playoff stage in the VCT Pacific, which is scheduled to commence on February 24th. The competition is expected to be fierce as these top-tier teams battle it out for a chance to represent their region on the international stage.

The third match not only showcased the dominance of GEN.G but also highlighted the level of competition in the South Korean region, with multiple teams proving their mettle and securing their positions in the playoffs. It serves as a testament to the high level of skill, dedication, and talent within the VCT Pacific region.
