VCT 2023 Pacific League: Team Secret Sweeps DRX to End Seven-Match Win Streak
The undefeated king finally takes a blow.
The undefeated king of the VCT 2023: Pacific League, DRX has dropped its first-ever match against the mighty Southeast Asian lineup of Team Secret during the last week of the regular season.
DRX went into the match with a perfect 7-0 scoreline, beating all teams that it had gone up against, dropping only two maps in the process, one each against Gen.G Esports and RRQ.
On the other hand, Team Secret did not enjoy a particularly great run and found itself on the verge of getting eliminated before this match. In dire need of a win, Secret stepped up big time and stunned the Korean giants by handing them a clean 2-0 sweep.
