Summit clash between Mandatory and DVM - Split 1 of the France 2024 Challengers

It was probably the most eagerly awaited and feared match of the regular season: the clash between Mandatory and DVM! The match was all the more important because it came at a time when a win for Mandatory and a loss for DVM would have reshuffled the cards in the Split 1 standings of the Challengers France 2024 ! Although they got off to a rocky start, the Mandatory players managed to overcome the obstacle. They won the BO3 by a score of 2 maps to 1.

Match summary Mandatory vs Valiant (Split 1 - VCL France 2024)

Map 1 : Sunset - DVM hits the ground running

Despite winning a few rounds at the start of the map, Mandatory was unable to contain DVM on Sunset. Marctylinho's team was unstoppable in Attack once equipped. They won duels at both long and short range by positioning themselves very boldly around the various smokes and chokes points. At the changeover, DVM led 9-3.

They then confirmed their lead by reaching 11 points and putting Mandatory in a tricky position. Despite a few spurts of energy from CyvOph and So0n, who were dreaming of a comeback, DVM managed to close the map with a score of 13-8.

Map 2 : Lotus - Mandatory's fantastic comeback

DVM is on a good run and confirmed it on Lotus. The team played perfectly with the doors to set traps for Mandatory, or catch them unawares. DVM leads 7-2 and looks set to roll over our team. But with their backs against the wall, the Mandatory players really came into their own! AKUMAAAAA in particular, who scored hat-tricks, and TheBigFiz, who pulled off some improbable revenges, taking several opponents with him, even while playing sheriff.

Mandatory won the last 3 rounds of the side and began to do to DVM what they had done to them so far. Mandatory climbed back up the scoreboard to 8-8 and the DVM players erred on the side of caution by giving up too many rounds in the hope of keeping their weapons. Mandatory took advantage and eventually won Lotus by a score of 13-9. The cards were reshuffled and it all came down to Ascent.


Map 3 : Ascent - Mandatory sets the pace

On Ascent, Mandatory got off to an attacking start by winning the first 3 rounds, thanks to improbable clutchs from AKUMAAAAA and Fiz. Despite some good keloqz picks on his Jett and the Operator, DVM couldn't slow down Mandatory's offensives. Often forced to play retakes, they often found themselves at a disadvantage and Mandatory won the Attack by a score of 8-4.

The Mandatory players are now confident. Even though they lost the pistol round and the Defence side eco, they played well together and regained control of the game. Tired of playing cautiously, the DVMs start to make force buy Mandatory took a large lead and led 12-7 in the final phase of the game. Even though the team had 5 match rounds, it only needed two to close out and win this BO3. It was an explosive victory that boosted morale and virtually confirmed Mandatory's place in the Split 1 play-offs.
