Team BDS Team BDS Europe Rank #6 has announced the signing of Opportunists, formerly of DfuseTeam DfuseTeam Inactive , following the players splitting with the casting organization following their good results during the VCT.
Announced just after the qualification of the roster for the European Stage 1 Masters, Dfuse released their players due to administrative problems, a move that surprised many people and placed one of the best European teams on the free market. This acquisition by Team BDS directly propels the organization to the top in France and even in Europe, with the team currently in Top 4 in Europe.
First known during the summer of 2020 under the tag Opportunists Opportunists Inactive , the team has scoured many French tournaments such as the Occitanie Esports or the Shooting Stars tournament finishing respectively in second and first place. Afterwards they won the NGL Open Cup, their first European victory, in front of Gambit Esports Gambit Esports Europe Rank #5 . It is after a failure during the First Strike: Europe that the five signed with DfuseTeam.
Formed around Logan "logaN" Corti and Rodolphe "rodeN" Bianco, two former CSGO players who have played for Team LDLC, Team Heretics, and 3DMAX, the French roster has been able to relaunch itself in 2021 with a great performance during the qualifications for the RedBull Home Ground. They made it all the way to the Main Event qualifier but fell to the future Team Vitality Team Vitality Europe Rank #13 .
After a scare in Challengers 1 of the first phase of the Valorant Champions Tour by losing to Ro256, the French-speaking lineup managed to make up for it by beating Giants Gaming Giants Gaming Europe Rank #15 , Team Finest Team Finest Europe Rank #24 before taking out G2 Esports G2 Esports Europe Rank #8 by a score of 2-1 in the final match. The Masters did not go so well for TakaS and his teammates, as they were defeated by FunPlus Phoenix FunPlus Phoenix Europe Rank #3 and then by Guild Esports Guild Esports Europe Rank #10 in the elimination match.
In the second phase, the French five managed to reach the Challengers Main Event twice, beating Team Heretics Team Heretics Europe Rank #7 and Guild Esports Guild Esports Europe Rank #10 on their way.
