Paper Rex is on the verge of finalizing their latest addition to the Valorant roster in preparation for the VCT 2024 season.
According to a report by Blix.gg, the Singapore-based esports organization is set to welcome Cahya “Monyet” Nugraha into their ranks.
The report by Alejandro “anonimotum” Gomis and Bo Hoogland announced that PRX reached a verbal agreement with Monyet. Global Esports agreed to transfer the Indonesian player to the reigning Pacific League champion’ roster.
Monyet will fill the void left by PRX’s star duelist player, Wang “Jinggg” Jing Jie. Following PRX’s second-place finish at the Valorant Champions 2023, the team’s coach, Alexandre “alecks” Sallé, announced that Jinggg would not be part of PRX’s Valorant roster for the VCT 2024 season.
Jinggg is expected to enter National Service at the start of 2024, preventing him from competing for at least one year. The compulsory duration of service is two years.

Monyet was a key player on Global Esports’ Valorant roster for the entirety of the VCT 2023 season. He was the team’s primary controller main, playing Astra, Omen, and Viper this year.
Despite Global Esports’ early tournament exits, which included tying for the last spot at LOCK//IN, finishing in 8th place at VCT Pacific League, and ending their season with a 5th-6th standing at VCT Pacific Last Chance Qualifier, Monyet has shown he is one of the top performers in the Pacific region.
Monyet was a top-four player in the VCT Pacific League, according to vlr. gg’s rankings. He was also ranked the top player in the VCT Pacific Last Chance Qualifier, beating out some of the best players in the region.
