DetonatioN FocusMe is a Japanese esports team. They are Japan's first League of Legends full-time pro gaming team.


At the beginning, they had been working as a non-corporate team FocusMe.
DetonationN FocusMe was founded in April 2013 when DetonatioN acquired the roster of FocusMe, including Gorira13, Anelace, Ceros, Yutapon, and PresidentMaa. In 2013 and 2014, they placed highly in multiple seasons of the JCG Premier League.

2014 Season

In 2014, they placed last out of four teams in the first season of the LJL but then won the second season later that year. That victory gave them an invitation to Korea's NLB Summer 2014, where they lost in the first round of Gold League to Prime Sentinel. Domestically, DetonatioN FocusMe also won the LJL Summer Season and then played against Rascal Jester, the Winter Split victors, in the LJL Grand Finals, which they won 3-2.

2015 Season

After winning the LJL Season 1 finals in a 3-0 victory over sister team DetonatioN RabbitFive, FocusMe attended the 2015 International Wildcard Invitational. There, went 1-5 in the group stage, securing their only victory over the Latin American Kaos Latin Gamers and placing in sixth out of the seven teams present. Returning home for LJL 2015 Season 2, FocusMe placed second, behind Ozone Rampage but then won the Grand Finals for the second year in a row, securing their second chance at international competition at the International Wildcard Tournament in Turkey. There, they surprised expectations on the first day with a 2-1 record and victories over Oceania's The Chiefs eSports Club and SEA's Bangkok Titans. They lost all of their remaining games on the second day and ultimately placed in last, but their performance on the first day - and the individual performance of top laner Yutapon in particular (including a very strong  Ryze performance against the Bangkok Titans) drew international attention to the Japanese League of Legends scene, especially ahead of Riot officially expanding into Japan and Japan being awarded its own servers.

2016 Season

DetonatioN FocusMe acquired Catch and viviD (now Eternal) from SBENU Sonicboom for LJL 2016 Season.
