9-3 curse unable to help BBL Esports as DRX make statement in VCT 2023: LOCK//IN Sao Paulo debut.

Day two of VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN Sao Paulo has been a day jampacked with several surprises in the competitive VALORANT scene. From FunPlus Phoenix’s failed attempts on Lotus to seeing the tournament’s first Yoru pick, VCT 2023: LOCK//IN Sao Paulo has provided top-tier diversity in the 2023 VALORANT meta. However, something that was not out of character to other international VALORANT LAN events was DRX’s utter control over their opponent as they continued their strong form from VCT Champions 2022.

9-3 curse unable to save BBL from DRX domination

DRX were considered the heavy favorites going into today’s matchup against EMEA’s BBL Esports, who tried to confuse DRX with a cheeky Yoru pick on Pearl. Unfortunately for BBL Esports, the only thing confusing about the first map was why QutionerX’s Yoru was the only saving grace for the team against DRX. The rest of the team ended the series with abysmal score lines as QutionerX’s Yoru was the only pick to have a positive rating, 1.05, on the side of BBL Esports. 

Sorry DRX, but I'm gonna say it, not even the infamous 9-3 curse could save BBL Esports from you. It was pure domination in the second half from the side of DRX as they closed out the second half in four quick rounds.
