During the inaugural season of VCT Pacific, yb worked with RRQ at a time when the in-game leader leadership alternated between David “xffero” Monangin and Saibani “fl1pzjder” Rahmad, and upon his departure, he had helped to cementing them as one of the most progressive teams in the league.
Despite a rocky debut in São Paulo that included a decisive defeat to FUT Esports, Rex Regum Qeon secured seventh place in the VCT Pacific League’s regular season, boasting victories over DetonatioN FocusMe, Team Secret, Global Esports, and Talon Esports.
Their final campaign with yb in the Last Chance Qualifier was a narrow affair, marked by a win over Global Esports but ending with two hard-fought losses to Gen.G and the ultimate victors, ZETA DIVISION.
