When asked who Paper Rex would like to meet in Brazil, many of the PRX members express a desire to compete against North America’s Sentinels, including 18-year-old Jason “f0rsakeN” Susanto, who wants to meet Tyson “TenZ” Ngo on the same server. “I just want to see how my aim is against him,” he says.
The Paper Rex team have also acknowledged their longstanding rivalry with DRX, with in-game leader Benedict “Benkai” Tan highlighting the recurring trend of the two teams facing each other in international events. Benkai notes that the team has a running joke about this pattern, saying that “every time we go to an international event that our first draw is always DRX. It is one of those things where you just think that DRX is our kryptonite.” he says.
Khalish “d4v41” Rusyaidee also expresses gratitude for the team’s inclusion in the partnered league “Because earlier in 2022, we were basically just a bunch of friends in the VALORANT scene, and I’m very grateful that I have this kind of opportunity to compete with my teammates.”
