Earlier this year in an exclusive interview with AFK Gaming, Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić - Head Coach for Bleed Esports, mentioned that the only goal they were focussing on was to become one of the franchised teams for the VCT 2024/2025 Pacific League.
This was stated right after Bleed Esports had won the VCL 2023 Malaysia & Singapore Split 1 and goes on to show the belief that LEGIJA had in his team to win the next event as well.
The organization made a necessary adjustment before the current tournament by signing Marcus "Nephh" Tan over from X10 Esports and this move has paid out in dividends.
Here is a quick comparison of their performance across Split 1 and Split 2, where Bleed Esports went from being a dominant team to achieving absolute perfection.
Just one look at some of the key stats from the two tournaments is enough to showcase how one impactful roster change has resulted in the team achieving a near-flawless run in this regional league.
Bleed Esports swept their rivals X10 Esports in the grand final with utmost ease, giving away just 16 rounds across the three maps - Pearl (13-10), Lotus (13-4), and Bind (13-2).
Derrick "Deryeon" Yee had a big role to play in his team's utter dominance on the day and was named MVP of the grand final for registering a K/D/A of 52/29/12 along with an ACS of 265.
Bleed Esports will now be seen representing the regions of Malaysia and Singapore with its international lineup at the VCT 2023 Ascension Pacific, which is the final step to qualify for the VCT 2024/2025 Pacific League.
It will be their toughest challenge yet with top teams from every region delivering their absolute best to grab the one available spot and make it into the international circuit.
