The star participant of Cloud9 revealed Paper Rex are one of many few VALORANT groups he’s weary of on the upcoming LOCK//IN event.

“Dude Paper Rex is good, PRX is really good. They’re one of the teams I don’t like to face, especially in this kind of format where it’s one loss and you’re out. They do some really crazy comps, and you kind of don’t know what you’re going into,” he mentioned.
Paper Rex are often known as one of many extra numerous groups when it comes to playstyle. Rather than commonplace compositions, Paper Rex sometimes make use of off-meta brokers to pair with an aggressive playstyle.
A notable instance was Jason “f0rsakeN” Susanto utilization of Yoru throughout Paper Rex’s run at main VCT occasions comparable to Masters Copenhagen, which concluded in July 2022. Paper Rex completed in second place following a 3-2 defeat to EnjoyablePlus Phoenix.
“[Paper Rex] is really unpredictable with the comps they play. Plus, they play very loosely so it’s very hard to prepare against. They could have some really cool stuff that could catch you off guard. [The] same goes for us, we’ll have some unpredictable stuff too,” Yay mentioned.
Paper Rex are set to face off in opposition to Cloud9 within the first spherical of the LOCK//IN event on Feb. 15.
