His remarkable 64/43/25 KDA and an average combat score of 214 were instrumental in securing Gen.G’s triumph.

Throughout the grand finals, Gen.G showcased exceptional strategy and adaptability.

On Ascent, they dominated with precise execution and aggressive play, showcasing t3xture’s sharp aim and Karon’s anchoring skills.

Despite a setback on Split, where Paper Rex demonstrated their prowess, Gen.G bounced back on Lotus with standout performances from t3xture and Munchkin, clinching a hard-fought victory.

The final map, Bind, saw Gen.G’s strategic brilliance shine through as they outmaneuvered Paper Rex with a double controller composition, securing a decisive win and claiming the championship title.

With their triumph, Gen.G not only secured a significant cash prize but also earned three championship points towards qualification for VALORANT Champions.

Both Gen.G and Paper Rex will now represent the VCT Pacific League at the VCT Masters Madrid, solidifying their presence on the global stage.

Gen.G’s unexpected victory over Paper Rex marks a pivotal moment in the 2024 VCT Pacific season, signaling a shift in the competitive landscape of VALORANT esports.
