T1 vs Global Esports - Who will win this matchup on the first day of VCT Pacific League?
Global Esports had a great run in South Asia in the past. After franchising, the team saw a complete revamp as talented players from all around the globe were brought in to form the roster. The new roster was able to win one map against Team Vitality at LOCK//IN but was eventually eliminated from the tournament.
On the other hand, T1 started out competing in NA. It was only after franchising that the organization completely shifted to the Pacific region. Here, they brought in players from Cloud9, The Guard, and Crazy Racoon to form a stacked team.
This matchup is a tough one to call as both teams possess the firepower and strategic capabilities to emerge victorious. However, based on their recent performances, Global Esports may have a slight edge over T1 as they performed better than T1 at the LOCK//IN tournament.
This is the first time both these teams will be going up against each other.
Global Esports' last match was at VCT LOCK//IN where they went up against EMEA's Team Vitality. Unfortunately, the team was eliminated in this first match itself as they lost 1-2 in the BO3 (Best of Three) series.
T1's last match was at VCT LOCK//IN where they played against the Brazilian team FURIA. Here, T1 lost to them 0-2 in the BO3 series and was eliminated in their first match as well.
