Jingg has returned to the pro roster, now an active player for PRX.

On 29th March, PRX announced on their social media channels that Jinggg will return to competitive play and will be participating in VCT Pacific Split 1

Talking about this shocking return, PRX Chief Gaming Officer Harley "dsn" Örvall said “We were always prepared for the time that Jing Jie would have to register for his military service. Plans to keep our VALORANT roster’s competitive edge began as early as the start of 2023. However, we consider ourselves extremely fortunate that recent developments allow Jing Jie to continue competing on our team. Naturally, we’re ecstatic and are working to ensure Jing Jie’s documents and paperwork are in order to get him back in the game as soon as possible.”

Update on Jinggg's Contract Situation :

According to the announcement, the Singaporean went through medical examinations, which determined that he is medically unfit for military service due to a life-long medical condition. However, the player's condition is managed with ongoing treatment.

“Paper Rex has determined that his medical condition does not affect his ability to compete at the highest levels of esports. Jinggg’s medical condition is a personal and private matter, therefore, Paper Rex and Jinggg’s family request that the public respect his privacy in this regard. Jinggg has remained signed to Paper Rex as a reserve player throughout this time. With the recent developments, we have signed a contract extension until the end of 2026."

PRX also acknowledges former Global Esprorts player Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha’s contribution to the team and at the VCT Masters 2024. The statement declares that Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha has been moved to the reserve player role, but he is still part of the Paper Rex VALORANT team and may assume an active role if necessary.
