Team Secret’s DubsteP crowned as the Number 1 Asian Valorant Player of 2021

After showing an impressive performance in the Valorant Champions 2021 tournament, Jayvee “DubsteP” Paguirigan became a notable figure in the Valorant esports scene that even got him an award.


Just last weekend, DubsteP was crowned as the best Asian player in 2021 by VALO2ASIA. The duelist garnered all nominations from the 20 judges composed of shoutcasters and journalists.

VALO2ASIA acknowledged that his gameplay performances was what propelled Southeast Asia into the esports global scene and served as a motivation that “everything is possible”. In response to that, DubsteP expressed his gratitude for the award in his official Twitter page.

Even FPS shoutcaster, Nico “Blackenblue” Gayoso, only had high praises for DubsteP that he even stated the reasons on why DubsteP got this award.

“He had the 8th highest ACS during Champions, the highest of any Asian player at the event, and was a huge part of the roster dropping only a single one of the 18 maps they played during the entirety of the VCT Stage 3 SEA Challengers Group Stage and Playoffs. The amount of responsibility put on his shoulders, and how he has stepped up to take all of it head-on at the top level of competitive VALORANT, while also having a great mix of explosiveness yet discipline in his playstyle, puts DubsteP as the definite #1 player in Asia in my book, and I know in many others’ as well,” explained the FPS caster.

DubsteP was not the only Filipino listed in VALO2ASIA’s awards. The other members of Team Secret were also ranked on the list with Kevin “Dispenser” Te ranked at 17th followed by Jim “BORKUM” Timbreza. While the “otso-otso” originator Riley “Witz” Go placed 13th and the Filipino esports GOAT, Jessie “JessieVash” Cristy Cuyco was at rank 11th. The rest of the players ranked on the list were from Thailand, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
