Paper Rex’s VALORANT Champions Tour 2023 campaign just received a huge boost.
Last Friday, Ilya “something” Petrov announced on Twitter that he will be participating in VALORANT’s most prestigious event to be held at the Shrine Auditorium Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California on August 8.
“Hey guys! See you at champs!😎 FOR REAL NO BAIT TWEET!” said something in a tweet.
The Russian player encountered Visa issues back in Paper Rex’s campaign at the Tokyo Masters. This forced the top Southeast Asian squad to tap Patiphan “CigaretteS” Posri as stand-in.
Paper Rex will be joined by Evil Geniuses, NRG, LOUD, KRÜ / Cloud9 / Leviatán, Fnatic, Team Liquid, FUT Esports, KOI / GIA, DRX, T1, EDward Gaming, Bilibili Gaming, and FunPlus Phoenix.
The participants from the Pacific LCQ and the EMEA LCQ have yet to be determined.
