Expectations were high from Global Esports (GE) coming into the fifth week of the VCT 2023: Pacific League, fresh from its dominant victory against Talon Esports. Unfortunately, all hopes came crashing down as Paper Rex (PPRX) mounted an incredible comeback to hand the team yet another 2-1 defeat.

Global Esports was off to a solid start but Paper Rex reacted quickly and shut the team down before they could capitalize on their momentum to run away with the series.

The extra effort put in by Ilya "something" Petrov played a crucial role in Paper Rex getting the upper hand on multiple occasions. He was unstoppable, especially on Pearl which was the deciding map, slamming Global Esports like a truck with his mind-blowing maneuvers on Jett.

Once again GE found the ropes slipping out of their hands as they flailed helplessly. Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha tried his best to keep his team in the competition but something was too powerful to contain, securing an ACS of 329 along with a K/D/A of 24/14/5.

With this, Paper Rex secures its third win of the regular season and jumps up to the fourth spot on the overall points table. On the other hand, Global Esports registered its fourth loss of the league and maintains the eighth position on the overall points table.
