Valorant bookmakers have priced both teams at the same odds, suggesting that there's not much to set them apart. Considering they have split their last two meetings and have looked solid in the first stage of the tournament, that's a fair assessment.

  • Gen.G won their most recent meeting with Paper Rex
  • Paper Rex finished the first stage of the tournament with a 2-1 record
  • Gen.G are on a seven-game winning streak

Gen.G Form


Gen.G have looked incredible so far this tournament. They finished the Swiss Stage with a perfect record, beating both LOUD and EDward Gaming; however, Gen.G have also dropped one map in each of the two series.

This doesn't necessarily prove that Gen.G struggled to win the series. They defeated the tournament favourites LOUD with 13-11, 8-13, and 13-5 and took down EDward Gaming with a reverse sweep with 13-5 on Split and 13-6 on Breeze.

Interestingly, Gen.G don't have a single player ranked in the top seven rating-wise this tournament. But have three players ranked top-11, proving that this team is strong as a unit and don't have to rely on one player to do all the heavy lifting.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


No changes for Gen.G.

  • Kim "t3xture" Na-ra
  • Kim "Lakia" Jong-min
  • Byeon "Munchkin" Sang-beom
  • Kim "Karon" Won-tae

Paper Rex Form


Paper Rex made it through the VCT 2024 Masters Madrid Swiss Stage with a 2-1 record. They reverse-swept EDward Gaming in the first round, then lost against Team Heretics and bounced back with a 2-1 victory against Karmine Corp.

Their loss to Heretics didn't look good, but Paper Rex didn't need long to improve the impression with a commanding victory against Karmine Corp – who were considered one of the strongest teams travelling to Madrid.

Like Gen.G, Paper Rex seem to be in good form, but form isn't necessarily that important in regional derbies.

Verdict

Paper Rex and Gen.G know each other well. As two VCT Pacific League teams, Paper Rex and Gen.G have been watching each other play for the entire season so far, and they've split their meetings 1-1, granted Gen.G won the most recent 3-1 in the VCT 2024 Pacific League finals.

Gen.G defeated Paper Rex a month ago, and it wouldn't be the most shocking thing to see them win again. But the quality difference between the two squads isn't as massive as their past meeting might suggest. Expect a close and competitive series.
