vVv Gaming Returns to LoL with acquisition of Team VEX and Training Facility in Southern California!


Los Angeles, California – October 30, 2013 – Today, vVv Gaming is proud to announce our return to the League of Legends scene with the acquisition of VEX, a team that is rapidly rising in the North American Challenger Scene.
Formed back in May, team VEX started to make their name in the PAX Prime Qualifier, falling short to coL 1-2 in the early rounds, and then later securing Top 3 on the 5v5 Challenger ladder. Getting their first taste of success, the team realized that to achieve their goals they would need to go all-in and commit everything to making it into the League Championship Series. They did just that and three months later secured a team house with no sponsor funding whatsoever. The entire team with the exception of their support player have been living and practicing in the house for the last month. 
Statement from Rob "vVv RobZ" Thompson, President of vVv Gaming:

It's no secret that League of Legends is the biggest competitive title in the world. For us, it's always been about finding the right players to work with, players who understand the big picture and have the drive to focus on improving and winning, not fandom or drama. After a year of searching, I'm beyond excited to say that we've found the right fit. VEX really stood out to us with their entrepreneurial approach towards their goals, pure initiative and passion for the game - their story is truly inspiring and I look forward to working with them!

Statement from Captain and Top Laner for vVv LoL, Richard "vVv Dr Snugglez" Pilkington on joining vVv Gaming: 

We chose vVv Gaming because their management seemed very knowledgeable about esports and specifically League of Legends. I see them being able to promote us very effectively as well as market us to additional sponsors. BelievVve!

gallery_4154_416_836.gif Team Manager: Charles "vVv ggCharles" Burch
gallery_4154_416_836.gif Analyst: Yun "vVv Truemafia" Choi
Joining the vVv staff and running the training facility operations will be Charles "vVv ggCharles" Burch who originally formed the team back in May. Alongside Charles is the teams analyst Yun "vVv Truemafia" Choi, who is fluent in Korean and follows the International scene very closely. Yun has a great eye for talent and originally scouted the teams ADC, Tails, back in Toronto. Both Charles and Yun live with the players in the house in Southern California, about an hour outside of the vVv Gaming HQ in Los Angeles.
Charles had the following to say about the transition to vVv Gaming:

The last three months have been a roller coaster ride for us. We were all sitting at home, discussing the future of the team, and we found our goals were the same: to become a professional team. We put a plan in motion to acquire a team house in Southern California, deciding to move in with or without any sponsors to help us out along the way. We knew our potential, even if others did not see it at the time. vVv Gaming listened to our story, and were frankly shocked to hear that a team took so much initiative to secure their success. Being a part of vVv Gaming is very exciting for us as a team. Without the added stress of paying for our own gaming house, we will be able to fully focus our efforts on becoming the best League of Legends team that we can be. With vVv Gaming at our side, we seek to be at the top of the North American League of Legends competitive scene, and eventually rise to the world stage. I would like to thank Rob and vVv management for the opportunity to work with vVv Gaming. I would also like to thank my family and the families of all my players for being supportive in our endeavor into e-sports.




The team will be competing this weekend in the Semi Finals of the North American Season 4 Spring Promotion Qualifier against COGnitive Gaming. The Winner of this match will earn a place in the Season 4 Promotion Tournament and a chance to go pro in the LCS in December!

Please join us in welcoming the team to vVv Gaming and wishing them the best in their upcoming leagues and qualifiers!
