We are very excited to be back in Call of Duty, because we know that the vVv Gaming brand just doesn’t feel the same without a strong console presence… We have seen great success over the years in Call of Duty and we believe that this new roster of PHiZZURP, John, TwiZz, and SinfuL will just add to our past success and surpass all expectations. We are so excited to watch them compete at a LAN event for the first time under the vVv Gaming name this Friday, May 15th.
We would like to congratulate vVv Gaming on their return to the Call of Duty eSports scene, and we wish the best of luck to them at UMG California.
I am very excited to join the vVv community as a player on their new Call of Duty professional team. First off, I’d like to say that my gratitiude towards their staff can not be described. I’m sure I speak of the rest of my team that we can not thank them enough for working with us through a tricky situation. We are going to make the best of this opportunity as you will all see this week at UMG Ontario!
