The recently released list by Liquipedia offers insights into the most searched player pages in VALORANT throughout the entirety of 2023.
SINGAPORE – Esports wiki Liquipedia has released a list featuring the most visited VALORANT player and coach pages in 2023.
On the top 20 list, there are only four representatives from VCT Pacific, and interestingly, all of them belong to the same Paper Rex team: Ilia “something” Petrov, Jason “f0rsakeN” Susanto, Wang “Jinggg” Jing Jie, Patiphan “CGRS” Posri.
something claimed the top spot as the most popular personality in VALORANT throughout the 2023 season while representing Paper Rex. 2023 marked his debut in the tier-one scene after his involvement in the Japanese circuit under the Sengoku Gaming banner. Impressively, the duelist from Paper Rex outshone the VALORANT icon Tyson “TenZ” Ngo, currently playing with Sentinels, who claimed the second spot on the popularity chart.
Trailing closely in the third position is the Indonesian standout f0rsakeN, who experienced a one-rank drop from 2022. Jinggg secured the eighth spot, while CGRS captured the community’s attention during his stand-in tenure for Paper Rex at VALORANT Masters Tokyo and claimed the 11th spot among the most visited player pages last year. This also placed CGRS above the Chinese star duelist Zheng “ZmjjKK” Yongkang.
An interesting aspect is that the top 20 list of the most visited player pages only features players from Paper Rex in the 2023 season, with no representation from any other teams in the VCT Pacific League.
Apart from the four Pacific players and a Chinese player on the list, it comprises five players and a coach from the Americas and features nine players from EMEA. Christine “potter” Chi takes the spotlight as the only coach and female personality to secure a spot on the list, claiming the 17th position after successfully guiding Evil Geniuses to a runners-up finish at VALORANT Masters Tokyo and ultimately a win at the 2023 VALORANT Champions, an achievement celebrated on their home turf in Los Angeles.
Of particular interest is the presence of Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker, who stands as the sole Challengers player to secure a spot on the list. The current Bleed Esports player made the list despite being with Cloud9 for only the initial three months of the year and participating in the VCT LOCK//IN event before moving to DSG.
