Paper Rex has officially reinstated Wang "Jinggg" Jie to its active Valorant roster. The Singaporean organization made the announcement via its social media platforms, marking Jinggg’s return to competitive play after navigating through a significant hurdle.

Jinggg's comeback comes as a result of a unique circumstance – he successfully bypassed mandatory military service due to a medical condition. This development not only safeguards Jinggg's professional gaming career but also reshapes the composition of Paper Rex's roster, benching Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha.

Paper Rex wasted no time in integrating Jinggg back into its competitive lineup, confirming his participation in the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Pacific Split 1. The organization's Chief Gaming Officer, Harley "dsn" Örvall, expressed gratitude for the fortunate turn of events, emphasizing the meticulous planning undertaken to maintain the team's competitive edge amidst potential disruptions.

Addressing concerns surrounding Jinggg's medical condition, Paper Rex clarified that the player's ongoing treatment effectively manages the condition, allowing him to compete at the top level of esports without compromise. Both Paper Rex and Jinggg's family have urged the public to respect the player's privacy regarding this matter.

Reflecting the confidence in Jinggg's abilities, Paper Rex extended his contract until the conclusion of 2026, solidifying their commitment to his continued presence in the team. While acknowledging Monyet's contributions to their recent success, Paper Rex confirmed his transition to a reserve role, recognizing the need for roster adjustments to optimize performance.

With Jinggg's return, the current Paper Rex roster stands as a formidable force in the Valorant scene:

  • Aaron ‘mindfreak’ Leonhart
  • Jason ‘f0rsakeN’ Susanto
  • Khalish ‘d4v41’ Rusyaidee
  • Ilia ‘something’ Petrov
  • Jing Jie ‘Jinggg’ Wang
  • Cahya ‘Monyet’ Nugraha (Reserve)
  • Alexandre ‘Alecks’ Salle (Coach)

As Paper Rex prepares to embark on their competitive journey with Jinggg back in the fold, anticipation mounts for the impact he will undoubtedly make on the Valorant stage, reaffirming his status as a star player and a vital asset to the team's ambitions.
