After eliminating Global Esports to start their Pacific LCQ conquest, RRQ dropped to the lower bracket after succumbing 2-1 to the might of Japan’s ZETA DIVISION.
The first game of the RRQ-ZETA series ended really well for the Indonesian-Filipino squad as they managed to stomp ZETA 13-2 on Ascent. Sadly, their winning confidence didn’t last long as ZETA managed to equalize the series by winning the second game on Split (13-8) and eventually completed the reverse sweep by closing it out on Ascent (21-19).
Moving on to the second series of the day, Team Secret swept Gen.G 2-0 in their matchup. The all-time Filipino VALORANT greats wasted no time in beating the South Korean team to a pulp as they swiftly took Haven (13-6) and Ascent (13-8), finally avenging themselves for their previous loss against Gen.G during the Pacific League 2023’s lower bracket playoffs.
With the day’s results, RRQ falls down to the lower bracket of the tournament where they will face Gen.G to determine whose team will exit from the tournament. Meanwhile, Team Secret is set to face ZETA DIVISION in the upper final for the chance to become the first team to secure a spot in the grand final.
