vVv Gaming's new-look Gears of War team will be seeking the top spot at Hypefestation v2.0 this weekend!
The technical definition for underdog is "a competitor thought to have little chance of winning a fight". According to most, the vVv Gears of War team has been an underdog since the launch of Gears of War 3, but don't tell them that. They would say they have as good a chance as any to snag a first place finish among the best teams in the nation. At the first Hypefestation in October, the word 'underdog' was thrown around for most of the weekend whenever vVv Gaming was in the discussion. When all was said and done, vVv had used a fairly new roster to power their way past a host of previous MLG Gears of War professionals, all the way to the loser bracket finals, sealing the deal on a 3rd place finish.
vVv Gaming will be aiming to have that same amount of success, and more, this weekend at Hypefestation v2.0 in Newark, NJ. They will enter competition on Friday night with a new-look roster that has had no previous LAN experience together. It looks as if vVv Gaming will again be referred to as underdogs when the bullets begin to fly. If history repeats itself, vVv won't have a problem using an unproven roster to knock off top teams one-by-one. With the immense amount of chemistry shared between Enmity, MonK, Vishouz, and BaySoldier, success seems inevitable.

Let's bring Gears of War dominance back to the organization that defined Gears success!
