Bazzi back with Global Esports

The organization Global Esports has announced that Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki would be returning to their roster for the 2024 season, which will be his 2nd stint there. In the previous one, he participated in the entire first VCT Pacific season and placed ninth. While Global Esports had been hinting at Bazzi’s comeback as early as January 24, the announcement was made 3 days prior to the start of the VCT Pacific KICKOFF event.

Bazzi, who last participated in the VCT Pacific League in October 2022 under the GE banner, had little success there and was unable to qualify for international competitions. He shared the field with the team’s longest-serving player, Abhirup “Lightningfast” Choudhury, at that time, as well as Cahya “Monyet” Nugroho and Kim “t3xture” Na-ra. After a major roster purge in September 2023, GE parted ways with a number of players, including Bazzi. Ever since, he has mostly avoided the spotlight and hasn’t taken part in any elite competitions.

After initially joining Cloud9 Korea in the summer of 2020, Bazzi has been a mainstay in Asian Valorant since that year. He contributed to the team’s several top four finishes with players like BuZz and Munchkin, however he was let go as Cloud9 closed down their Korean operations in advance of the 2021 international season. After that, he tried his luck at LAG Gaming in Japan, but he remained in the area with Crazy Raccoon. The squad made it to both Champions 2021 and Masters Berlin, but they were both unable to advance past their respective groups. After that, Bazzi was signed by OnSla2ers, a squad that took him to the Challengers Korea and East Asia LCQ finals but kept him out of international competitions. Based on statistical analysis, he was among the top performers in Korea that year, earning ratings of 1.26 and 1.12 in the Challengers stages.

Bazzi’s position in Global Esports’ starting lineup is still unknown; it’s possible that other plans will use him as a 6th man or substitute. Bazzi lives in South Korea, where the VCT Pacific events are planned to take place for the remainder of the year, thus logistical difficulties are minimized should he be called upon to play. It’s still unclear exactly what Bazzi’s responsibilities will be on the team. There is much conjecture as to whether he will earn a starting position or play a supporting role. But rumors suggest that he would replace Blazek1ng on the first day of the Pacific League, because the latter is supposedly having problems in Indonesia. In the VCT Pacific League, Global Esports will have to compete against powerful teams like T1, Bleed Esports, and Zeta Division in order to advance to Group A. Considering that GE is the underdog in the group, a strong showing on the opening day will surely heighten the tension of the battle.The new Global Esports, minus Bazzi, have already participated in Convergence 2023. They defeated FURIA Esports to finish in third or fourth place, but they were defeated by Team Vitality in the first round.
