Detonation FocusMe (DFM) shocked the VALORANT esports world on the final day of Week 1 of VCT Pacific by securing a remarkable 2-1 victory over T1.

This triumph not only marks a significant milestone for the team but also signifies their first victory in the VCT Pacific scene since joining the franchise in 2023.

Breaking free from a daunting losing streak that has haunted them since April 2021, DFM’s win injects newfound confidence and momentum into the team’s dynamics.

Their victory against T1, a top-three team from VCT Kickoff, is particularly noteworthy, showcasing their capability to compete at the highest level.

The match unfolded with intense action across three maps.

On DFM’s pick of Ascent, despite T1’s strong defence, DFM displayed resilience and tactical prowess, ultimately clinching the map with a score of 13-10.

T1 retaliated on Lotus, dominating the first half and securing a convincing victory at 13-5; however, in a fiercely contested battle on Sunset, DFM emerged victorious with a hard-fought 13-11 win.

This breakthrough victory was the culmination of dedicated efforts and strategic enhancements, including the appointment of Moon “Astell” Ji-won as head coach and “NorthernLights” as a coach, aimed at bolstering the team’s competitive edge.

Emotions ran high as players and fans celebrated this long-awaited triumph.

Tears of joy were shed, evident in the emotional reactions of players like Ibuki “Meiy” Seki.

The significance of this victory resonates deeply, as it not only ends a prolonged period of disappointment but also marks DFM’s first series win since First Strike Japan in December 2020.
