FunPlus Phoenix Wins Over Paper Rex And Becomes VCT Stage 2 Champions

APAC vs EU was one of the most exciting matches of VCT 2022 and one of the most highly anticipated matches. Because the stakes were so high, neither team wanted to give away the match.

The series opened with FunPlus Phoenix rout Bind 13-3, followed by Paper Rex’s 13-7 win over Icebox. The game was tied again when Paper Rex won 13-7 on Haven, giving FunPlus Phoenix a lead once again.

As Paper Rex was trailing 7-5 on Breeze, the decisive fifth map, managed to score four straight points to take the lead 9-7. The final six points of the game were scored by FunPlus Phoenix to secure a 13-9 victory.

The kills-death-assists ratio for SUYGETSU was 78-65-26, while the ratio for his teammate and countryman Andrey “Shao” Kiprsky was 82-64-40. The match-high number of kills for Paper Rex was 95, led by Singapore’s Jing Jie “Jinggg” Wang.
