An 82-minute documentary series from VCT Pacific unfolds across four parts, immersing viewers in the journeys of teams within the Pacific region as they carve their unique paths toward greatness.
SOUTH KOREA – VCT Pacific has released a new four-part documentary series, offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Pacific teams competing in the 2023 season across various locations: São Paulo for VCT LOCK//IN, Seoul for the VCT Pacific League and its LCQ, Bangkok for VCT Ascension Pacific, Tokyo for VALORANT Masters, and Los Angeles for VALORANT Champions.
In the first installment, titled “REDEMPTION,” the focus is on the progress of Gen.G, Rex Regum Qeon, Team Secret, and ZETA DIVISION as they continuously improve with each stage appearance. Ultimately, ZETA DIVISION emerges victorious in the Last Chance Qualifier, securing their qualification for VALORANT Champions LA at the season’s conclusion.
“Treat each game as if it was your last. Relive the stories of the VCT Pacific teams as they journey highs and low in the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023 season and fight for the last spot at VALORANT Champions in Los Angeles.”
The second series, named “ASENSION,” is centered around the journey of the ten teams participating in the Pacific region’s tier-two circuit. The Bangkok event determined the team that would be promoted to the VCT Pacific League for the subsequent two seasons, joining the other existing ten teams.
Bleed Esports ultimately emerged victorious, featuring a memorable highlight from Nutchaphon “sScary” Matarat, who chose to navigate the challenging system from the Challengers circuit, reaching the pinnacle once more and delivering an unforgettable clutch moment destined to be remembered in history for years to come.
“VCT Ascension Pacific brought the top talent from all over the Pacific region to Bangkok, Thailand to battle over 1 coveted spot in the VCT Pacific 2024. Go behind the scenes in this episode to see everything these teams laid on the line for their dream of competing at the highest level of professional VALORANT.”
The third chapter, titled “THE 6TH MAN,” zeroes in on the journey of inaugural VCT Pacific champions Paper Rex, competing at VALORANT Masters Tokyo. Despite being the Pacific favorites to go deep into the bracket at Masters, Paper Rex faced challenges fielding their full power roster for the Tokyo event due to a visa delay affecting their star player Ilia “something” Petrov.
Given the season’s requirement for a six-player roster, Patiphan “CGRS” Posri, who had been recruited as the team’s sixth member since the conclusion of the 2022 season, emerged as the most logical choice to complete the lineup at the eleventh hour, stepping into action in Tokyo with only a few weeks’ preparation. Despite Paper Rex lacking a full roster, the Thai player significantly contributed to their success, culminating in an impressive third-place finish.
After the elimination, coach Alexandre “alecks” Sallé emphasized, “I think most people don’t know that we didn’t sign him [CGRS] as a content creator. We signed him as a sixth man, like someone who has more experience, someone who can be an older brother to the team, and I think he has done that perfectly.”
“With their best duelist unable to compete and only a few weeks left to train for VALORANT Masters Tokyo, APAC team Paper Rex’s hopes for a championship run fall on Pacific’s most unlikely hero – CGRS. Take a behind-the-scenes look at one of VCT’s most unforgettable miracle runs in this feature documentary, The 6th Man.”
The concluding episode, titled “RISING,” shines a spotlight on the four Pacific teams at VALORANT Champions Los Angeles: Paper Rex, DRX, T1, and ZETA DIVISION.
“Champions. The tournament where winning and rising matters the most. Four Pacific teams had a long road through the International League season and the VCT Pacific Last Chance Qualifier to compete in the global finale of the VCT, VALORANT Champions. Relive moments as these teams rise and reflect on their journey for 2023.
