Map 1: Haven

On the NA top seed’s Haven selection, Paper Rex caught The Guard off guard early, jumping out to a 6-1 lead. Jinggg led the attack for Paper Rex early on, collecting 7 kills in the first two rounds. Even from a 1v2 position towards the finish, momentum swung back and forth,  with f0rsakeN 4k clutch. JonahP quickly followed with a 4k of his own, putting Paper Rex in the final round of the half without a full buy. Despite this, Benkai scores a vital flanker to put Paper Rex up 8-4 at halftime.

Paper Rex extended their advantage to 11-4 before The Guard began to string together rounds, but Jinggg sprung a trap at A main to make the score 12-8. The Guard fought back, but a f0rsaken Op collateral put an end to the comeback, and Paper Rex won 13-10 on Haven.


Paper Rex breezed through the first pistol of Split, picking up four picks and planting with ease. In the series, the Guard had yet to win a pistol round, which was costing them early leads in every half. In the first half, Split was a back-and-forth battle. Both teams traded unusual rounds and clutched the route to a 6-6 halftime deadlock, which was completed by a Jinggg ace on Raze. VCT Masters 2022 Playoffs Paper rex Defeated The Guard
