Vive la France!

French esports organisation DfuseTeam, has picked up VALORANT team Opportunists. The team consists of the French players Rodolphe "rodeN" Bianco, Logan "logaN" Corti, Dylan "hoppY" Aube, Jonathan "TakaS" Paupard, and Alex "AKUMAAAAA" Lo Bello.

The team has been considered one of the up and coming rosters in the European scene despite falling short of qualifying for the European finals of First Strike. In the first qualifier, the team missed qualifying in the last round, losing to one of the best teams in Europe, FunPlus Phoenix. Even though they did not qualify, they garnered respect from a lot of teams around the scene who brought them up as one of the ones with high potential during several interviews surrounding the event.

Slowly but surely, European VALORANT is picking up speed. While there is still a noticeable lack of organisations, more and more teams are willing to take the leap and sign teams. It is expected that the announcement of next year's Riot sponsored Champions Tour will help convince teams that VALORANT is an esport worth investing into. Of the large multi-gaming esports organisations, so far only Team Liquid, G2 Esports, Team Heretics, and Ninjas in Pyjamas have invested in the scene with tenured teams like Fnatic, SK Gaming, Natus Vincere, Astralis, and more still absent.

Until the year's end, there are several lower calibre tournaments through which you will be likely to follow DfuseTeam's progression through the European VALORANT scene.
