Global Esports Eliminated From VCT 2023 Pacific League


AFK Gaming

Global Esports has been eliminated from the VCT 2023 Pacific League following a clean sweep by Team Secret.
This was the final nail in the coffin for the side as they finish in the bottom four of the overall leaderboard winning only three out of their nine matches.
Team Secret has managed to qualify for the playoffs on the back of this win but their final placement will be determined following the match between RRQ and Paper Rex.

The final blow has been dealt to Global Esports by the dominant Team Secret in their final regular season match of the VCT 2023 Pacific League. The South Asian representatives tried to put up a valiant fight but fell short on both maps, Haven and Lotus, resulting in their elimination from the tournament.

On the other hand, Team Secret was able to register consecutive 2-0 victories to qualify for the playoffs which are scheduled to take place from 19th to 28th May.

Currently placed fifth on the leaderboard, Team Secret's final placement will be decided after the match between RRQ and Paper Rex takes tomorrow, 16th May. It will also determine matchups for the upper-bracket quarterfinals of the playoffs.

Team Secret wipes Global Esports knocking them out of the VCT 2023 Pacific League while qualifying for the playoffs

After struggling through most parts of the regular season through which only six of the ten competing teams were supposed to qualify for the playoffs, Global Esports received the final nail in the coffin following a clean sweep by Team Secret.

  • Haven - TS defeats GE on its map pick with a 13-9 scoreline

  • Lotus - GE lose to TS on its map pick with a 13-10 scoreline

  • Bind - Series did not reach the decider map

An inconsistent performance by Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar proved to be a huge hindrance for the side. The talented prodigy, Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha, once again proved to be an effective controller but limited success on other ends stretched the team too thin.

Team Secret having gained massive momentum and confidence after handing a clean 2-0 defeat to the indomitable DRX were unstoppable once again. They handled every situation with ease, maintaining their composure, and never seemed unfazed by anything thrown their way.

It was the youngster, Jeremy "Jremy" Cabrera, who was named as the MVP of this series for his impactful performances with Raze and Killjoy.

  • K/D/A: 32/32/15

  • ACS (Average Combat Score): 210

  • ADR (Average Damage Per Round): 145

  • Head Shot Percentage: 23%

Team Secret vs Global Esports - MVP

The loss resulted in Global Esports getting knocked out of the tournament with a bottom-four finish guaranteed on the leaderboard for the side. However, a victory would have resulted in a three-way tie between Global Esports, Gen.G Esports, and Team Secret, their placement on the leaderboard depending on map difference.

This would have raised the stakes associated with the match between RRQ and Paper Rex to another level. However, now things are a lot simpler, if RRQ wins they take the last qualification spot, and if they lose it all comes down to map difference.
