vVv Gaming Takes Down Lancouver 2012 After a team split a week and a half before Lancouver, RoshanNow and Altecx put together a new team for Lancouver consisting of the top lane player HolyitsDon, the mid lane Auke, and new jungler Long Le. The vVv Gaming team had swept the competition without dropping a single game all tournament, and were subsequently placed against The Vancouver Dream Team in the finals. The Dream team, led by their old team mates Tsunamiie and Skilly, who had left the team a week and a half week prior to the event, had shared their success leading up to the finals and also not dropped a game all weekend. The first game of the finals, the Vancouver Dream Team first picked Malphite who would ideally lead his team with a strong initiate. The rest of the Dream Team chose the champions Irelia, Nidalee, Corki and Janna to back up Malphite's strong capability for forcing engagements. The vVv team had gone into the finals knowing the meat hook jungle strategy that Tsunamiie was going to use, and allowed follow through with the pick. To everyone's surprise, vVv gaming chose a triple ability power team composition including a Karthus jungle. After an excessively long match, vVv Gaming came out with their first win of the best of 3 series. In game two, the Vancouver Dream Team stuck with their brutus beefcake muscle team, but opted to produce a tankier composition chosing Graves, Taric, Cho ’Gath, and Morgana, whilst vVv Gaming switched from the triple ability power team to a higher damage/lower health, force picking Janna, Kayle, Karthus, Ashe, and Nocturne. After a very intense game, in which both teams had given up large leads, The Vancouver Dream Team came out on top of game two. The final match of the series looked to be an all-out war for first place, with both teams throwing previous strategies out the window and picking new compositions. The Vancouver Dream Team switched from their usual composition to an area of effect team picking up Ezreal, Lee Sin, Leona, Amumu, and Kennen, with vVv Gaming changing their composition yet again choosing Janna, Corki, Ryze, Urgot, and Nautilus. No one could have expected that from gaining two kills early in the match, the vVv Gaming team would have completely dominated the game and destroyed the Dream Team’s Nexus before the 19 minute mark, yet here we are. After a stunning final, the vVv Gaming team took first place at Lancouver with a commanding finish. Each member of the team won an ASUS VE258Q 25″ LED Monitor (MSRP $289) + ASUS Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming Headset (MSRP $139) + $20 RP + Triumphant Ryze skin, and acknowledging their recent success, the vVv team plans on finalizing their roster and preparing for MLG Raleigh in late August.
