@  vVv Daviepants : (02 September 2014 - 09:41 AM) If you can't see anything in the jungle I don't really think it's tunnel visioning
@  vVv Daviepants : (02 September 2014 - 09:40 AM) @iHonkey yeah well that's besides the point LOL
@  iHonkey : (02 September 2014 - 09:39 AM) @daviepants you totes got bad tunnel vision hahaha
@  vVv Daviepants : (02 September 2014 - 09:38 AM) Omg lol...maybe it's just bc I'm paranoid when I play mid...I need to have some form of vision from the top and bottom river so I can avoid getting ganked as much as possible D:

vVv Gaming's Mortal Kombat Division Does It Again!



Posted Image


Over the years, to describe the eccentric personality of Major League Baseball slugger, Manny Ramirez, his teammates would often use the phrase, "That's just Manny being Manny". Coincidentally, vVv Gaming has its own Manny whom that phrase can be applied to, except it's not used to describe a personality trait. When Manny "vVv CD Jr" Brito is being Manny, he's doing what he does best, and what he's done since the release of Mortal Kombat 9; he's winning tournaments.


This past weekend, NEC Philly hosted their first major of the year, Winter Brawl 6, a fighting game tournament featuring a host of top players from the east coast. As far as Mortal Kombat goes, the weekend was filled with numerous surprises. A 13-year old prodigy was able to take down some big names in the MK community on his way to a top 5 finish and an online warrior, competing in his first tournament, had turned heads and shown execution comparable to that of vVv REO. Something that did not come as a surprise, however, was the placements of vVv Gaming. Throughout pool play on Saturday, vVv CD Jr and vVv REO were able to remain unbeaten and acquire winners bracket positions in Sunday's Top 8. When all was said and done, the two vVv teammates were able to acquire the gold and silver placements, and show the Mortal Kombat community that they deserve to be ranked #1 and #2 in the world.

vVv CD Jr and vVv REO throwing down in the MK9 Grand Finals at Winter Brawl 6 in Philadelphia, PA on Sunday


The vVv Gaming heavyweights, both of whom were flawless throughout the tournament, met in the winners bracket finals for a battle of the unbeatens. CD Jr was able to have his way with REO's Kabal, easily sending him to the losers finals with a 3-1 defeat. In the losers finals, REO sent VSM Crazy Dominican home with 3rd place finish, and advanced to grand finals to seek revenge against his teammate. This time, REO didn't let CD Jr push him around. Coming from the losers bracket, REO was required to win two best-of-5 series over CD Jr to take home the title. When the grand finals begun, REO seemed to have made adjustments and was able to deliver a 3-1 win over CD Jr, resetting the grand finals, and forcing a deciding best-of-5 series. With the hype mounting, CD Jr kept calm, stuck to his fundamentals, and easily took the gold medal with a 3-0, clean sweep of REO.

This was vVv CD Jr's second straight first place finish at a major in 2012, which means he has acquired valuable EVO points that will be used to seed him when the Evolution Championship Series kicks off in July. After this weekend's performance, there is sure to be a giant bull's eye around the three Vs when the MLG Winter Championships take place in late March in Columbus, OH. With the domination that has been displayed by vVv's Mortal Kombat Division, it seems the organization is now a heavy favorite to take the top spots at Mortal Kombat's first appearance at a Major League Gaming event!


Please join me in congratulating vVv CD Jr and vVv REO on their winnings from this past weekend and be sure to wish them luck when they duke it out for the top prizes in Columbus later next month!

Congrats guys!, I wish I would have known about this tournament sooner. I'm from Philly and live now about an hour away. I'll keep an eye out for when vVv is in the area. Would have been cool to cheer the best of the best on.

Hi im new a.k.a the 13 year old prodigy that everyone has been talking about >_>. I remember fighting cdjr right before i came into top 8 and he put me into the loser brackets. (score 2-1) While fighting his smoke with kl, when he beat my kl with his smoke the first match, i thought of the mk belt that the guy who interviewed me said i would win if i came in first. So i thought of it and it motivated me and i was able to beat his smoke at least once! That made it 1-1 and then he switched to jax and i went "OGOD" Lol his brother crazy dominican took me out. Best kit ive fought. Then i was just crossing along the forums and found this on one of the forums. I remembered cdjr and reo wearing these shirts so i decided to finally sign up. So hi everyone!
