A few days ago, Riot Games revealed their massive plans for VALORANT in 2021 with the VALORANT Champions Tour, a season-long competition tour. This for sure will encourage organizations who still didn’t pick up teams to start searching, and the latest to reveal their roster are DfuseTeam.
The French organization, founded by DfuseGG, are entering the VALORANT competitive scene through signing the Opportunists roster. DfuseTeam is looking into creating “an efficient team relying first on a healthy environment” by offering both the players and staff with all the resources needed for success.
The squad consists of Logan “LogaN” Corti, Rodolphe “rodeN” Bianco, Jonathan “TakaS” Paupard, Dylan “hoppY” Aube, and Alex “AKUMAAAAA” Lo Bello. Flavien “wallax” Lebreton will continue to act as their coach, which will be interesting to see how the players develop under him now with more resources at the team’s disposal.
rodeN is a former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional player with considerable experience under his belt, putting him in the forefront to act as the in-game leader for the team. He managed to win the ESL Championnat National Summer 2019, DreamHack Tours 2018 BYOC, and Breaking Lan. He finished 5th-6th in the Charleroi Esports 2019, and 4th in the FACEIT Pro League Europe: February 2020.
During his CS:GO professional career, logaN mostly represented Team Heretics and Team LDLC. He managed to win the ulkanBet Invitational, Liga de Videojuegos Profesional La Copa 2019, ESL Pro European Championship 2018, and ESL Championnat National Winter 2018.
TakaS and AKUMAAAAA are other CS:GO players, with the latter managing to place 9-16th in the Europe Minor Open Qualifier 1 ESL One Rio 2020 while representing Apologis. As for hoppY, he transitions into VALORANT coming from Fortnite and H1Z1. The French player represented Team Vitality during his H1Z1 career. He managed to finish 4th in the Fortnite Champion Series: Chapter 2: Season 1 Heat 4 Europe, and 2nd in both Fortnite Champion Series: Season X Heat 2: Europe and Champion’s Trios Cash Cup: Week 2 Europe.
While playing VALORANT together as Opportunists, they managed to win the NGL Open Cup, the Shooting Stars, and the Absolute Masters. They got 2nd place in the Occitanie Esports – 2020 as well. During the recent First Strike Europe: Open Qualifier A, they made it amongst the top 16, but failed to qualify for the Regional Final after losing to FunPlus Phoenix in the First Strike Europe: Qualifier #1 Playoff/Play-In. Out of a total 66 maps played, we have seen them heavily utilize Breach, Omen, Jett, and Killjoy in their team compositions, leaving the fifth agent as their situational pick.
