Change is in the air this week for vVv!

Following EVO 2012 and the release of the vVv fighting division, the organization will be undergoing some major changes to staff. The first and most important is LordJerith stepping down as President of vVv Gaming!

Having signed a contract to work at Riot Games, the developers behind League of Legends, LordJerith will be moving out to California to begin his new position and will no longer be able to dedicate his time to the day-to-day running of vVv Gaming.

LordJerith will continue to support vVv as the owner, and will remain as a consultant to the organization.

However this means he will no longer be a part of the Losers Bracket podcast. His passionate rants and straightforward discourse on the latest news in eSports will be absent from the show and will be deeply missed.

Stepping in to take his place as president of the organization will be the previous vice-president Jordan “Doomhammer” Kahn. Doomhammer has been on the vVv staff since 2009 in numerous roles, giving him the knowledge and experience to take the organization forward into the future of competitive gaming.

Additional changes to staff, though with less cross-country relocation, include vVv Rinzler taking over as the Guild Wars 2 manager. His efforts will be focused on making sure the organization is prepared for the upcoming beta event and throughout the launch of the game.

We look forward to continuing the legacy that is vVv Gaming, and are excited for these changes and opportunities for the future! Let’s go, vVv!

I'm really sad to see Jerry step down. vVv is what it is because of him, and because of his vision & ideas. There are many haters, who dislike Jerry and our organization. I am not happy to see this day, especially now; we are losing people, whole teams. I just have a bad feeling from this. It may be just me, but the feeling is lingering in the air. I certainly hope that we will remain the organization we used to.

And Jerry, do stick around us, no matter if you are officially a leader or not. What you did mattered. The haters can kiss the place where the sun doesn't shine.

It is quite sad and I haven't even been here for a month yet.

I thought Corza was the GW2 leader though? Is he not anymore?

When I think of vVv, Jerry is one of the first things to come to mind, it's unfortunate he won't be on TLB anymore. Congrats on GW2 manager though, Rinzler!

To be clear to those that read too fast: LordJerith still owns vVv Gaming, and will remain a consultant. Jerry will still be here, however he cannot be CEO of vVv Gaming and work for RIOT Games simultaniously.

I have faith in Doomhammer and so should everyone that is a part of vVv. We all know he puts in work and does a damn good job at it.

Also, to the question about Corza and GW2, we had to drop him as it just was not working out, thus Rinzler is taking over the position.

Side note: Jerry was deemed to be adding a lack of value, so staff put him on the chop-chop list :P

Lol @ the chop. And we're all supporting doom 100%. He's got the skills. He pays bills. Looking forward to it.

Alot of changes but as president Obama says change is good. We must look forward to the future of this community and not let the changes deter us from greatness which we know as E-sports. I'm looking forward from here on out never to look back as you might stumble and get lost. I also have faith in both of the guys put forth to lead us.

Indeed. This news probably came as a shock to some but in reality it has been played out over the last few months. However i invite everyone to think of the long term opportunity this brings us as well. Jerry will be working for Riot Games, a company who is heavily invested in e-sports with one of the most successful online games around. We also continue to maintain a good relationship with MLG and are pushing forward with the idea of a talent factory. There is still so much vVv Gaming is doing, and our future holds many opportunities. The community is still here and we are because of our common love of gaming and e-sports... and that will never die.

vVv Gaming is not dieing, it has only just begun.

I am both honored and excited by this opportunity to continue to grow vVv Gaming. While I can't pretend to ever fill the the shoes LordJerith is leaving behind, I'm confident in what I've learned from him and in the best staff in eSports.

vVv Gaming is perfectly positioned to continue to grow and be a leader in the future of eSports and that is exactly what we will do!

Will they make a new champion based on Jerry? That would be pretty epic :)

It saddens me to see Jerry step down from his position, but I have faith that Jordan will do a tremendous job. The Losers Bracket won't be the same without him. I wish Jerry the best of luck in his newest chapter of his life.

Best of luck Jerry. Riot couldn't have done any better.

I trust that you put the right people in charge and hope that this transition to new leadership goes well for the organization.

I can't say I am sad, I am happy for Jerry, and obviously he wouldn't be doing this if he didn't have full faith in the individuals he has put into place and spent so much time with everyone! He mentors many, so that in an event like this, which has never happened, even when I was on staff 3 years ago, a couple can take over and without stride be able to continue and take one issues as they arise and speak with Jerry as needed. Happy for everyone as this isn't an end, it's a true tremendous beginning.

Wow crazy stuff.. Sad to see Jerry go. Still remember almost 3 years ago just having a life conversation with him and about what I wanted with life and what role gaming played in my life. What an amazing guy, but also very excited to see what doom does with vVv. But I know it will still flourish as long as we have some of the dedicated people working hard for the community.
