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!
Hoping to be the change I need to be for myself.

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.

Big changes, staff will be stepping up big time to fill the hole left by Jerry's new role.
