Team Secret returned to their winning ways during VCT Philippines Stage 2 Challengers, securing the top spot in the tournament’s group stage with a 6-1 record.

A day before the playoffs were set to begin, Jayvee “DubsteP” Paguirigan announced on Twitter that if he won VCT Philippines Stage 2 Challengers, he would confess to his crush.

Riding the momentum from their performance in the group stage, Secret looked highly motivated as they went on a flawless run in the upper bracket, defeating fellow Filipino rivals South Built Esports and Rex Regum Qeon 2-0.

Secret proved that they were the best Valorant team in the Philippines once again, beating Oasis Gaming 3-1 in the grand final. DubsteP himself showed off a wider agent pool beyond his usual Jett, picking Yoru on Bind and Ascent, and KAY/O on Haven during their VCT Philippines Stage 2 Challengers run.

After their win, DubsteP reiterated that he was going to confess his feelings to a very special someone.

“I’m not lying,” he said. “That was one of my motivations going into the tournament.”

The Filipino duelist then praised his teammates, saying that they inspired him every day they were at their bootcamp. “It’s really great,” he said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better roster than this.”

Keeping his promise, DubsteP told his fans on Twitter that he had indeed gone ahead and confessed to his crush with a bouquet of white roses the day after Secret won VCT Philippines Stage 2 Challengers.

“I am so glad I had the courage to say it,” he said.

DubsteP, however, decided not to reveal the girl’s identity, because he did not want to disturb her peace.
