The roster will consist of their original roster from 2022 in Laz, Crow, Dep, SugarZ3ro and TENNN with the addition of barce, an ex-ZETA Division player. who recently played in VCT Japan: Stage 2 with DetonatioN Gaming.

ZETA Division had a strong 2022 season with the team being the top-contender in Japan for most of 2022. In stage 1 of the VCT season, ZETA made their mark besting other top contenders in the region along the likes of Crazy Raccoon and NORTHEPTION. They managed to dominate their way through JP groups and Playoffs to be Japan’s only representative at the first international event of 2022, VCT Masters: Reykjavík. While the team started shaky with a 2-0 loss in groups to DRX, they were able to bounce back and qualify for playoffs besting FNATIC and Ninjas In Pyjamas to qualify for playoffs. Again they entered the playoffs with a rough start, losing 2-0 to G2 Esports in the Upper-Bracket. But, the team was able to make a miracle run through the lower bracket defeating Team Liquid, DRX and Paper Rex before they fell short to eventual tournament winners OpTic Gaming, leaving them with a top 3 finish at the event.

Stage 2 of VCT remained consistent for ZETA, they remained a top team in Japan with their only loss being the VCT Masters: Copenhagen qualification match to NORTHEPTION at a 3-1 scoreline. While they failed to qualify for the second masters of the year, with NORTHEPTION’S group stage exit at the event, they were able to qualify directly to VCT Champions 2022. Unfortunately, their run at champions would be cut short with a elimination in the group stage to eventual winners LOUD.

Since champions 2022 and the announcement of their entrance to the Pacific League, this is the teams first roster move.

ZETA Divisions roster for VCT Pacific is:

Ushida “Laz” Koji
Maruoka “crow” Tomaoaki
Yuuma “Dep” Hisamoto
Shota “SugarZ3ro” Watanabe
Tenta “TENNN” Asai
Takebayashi “barce” Ryo
Motoyama “XQQ” Hibiki (Head Coach)
Sawada “JUNiOR” Yuya (Coach)
“Gya9” (Analyst)
