MVP Roster 2018 Spring.png

MVP is a Korean professional gaming organization based in South Korea.

History[edit]

MVP first signed League of Legends teams in May 2012, forming MVP Blue, MVP White, and MVP Red. MVP Red disbanded a few months later, but White and Blue went on to participate in multiple seasons of Champions. In February 2013, the organization shuffled the rosters of the two teams, and White (now renamed to Ozone) became the flagship team. With a roster of Homme, DanDy, Dade, imp, and Mata, Ozone won Champions Spring 2013 with a 3-0 sweep of CJ Blaze in the finals. In Septermber 2013, Samsung Electronics acquired both MVP lineups, forming Samsung Ozone and Samsung Blue.

In November 2015, it was announced that MVP would return to League of Legends,[1] and in December they announced a new roster of relatively unknown players: ADD, Beyond, Ian, MaHa, and ChaResh.[2]

2016 Season[edit]

Before the start of the season, support ChaResh left the team, and Max, formerly of CJ Entus, joined. During the Challengers Korea 2016 Spring Season, MVP performed admirably during the regular season with an 85% winrate, giving them first place with 34 pts. This seeded them directly into the finals of the Challengers Korea 2016 Spring Playoffs, where they were upset 3-2 by ESC Ever. However, they still earned a spot in the 2016 LCK Summer Promotion, where they beat Kongdoo Monster 3-1 to earn a spot in the 2016 LCK Summer Season.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Split, MVP managed to go 7-11 in series, netting them sixth place overall. Unfortunately, this made them barely miss the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs for the season. Their lack of circuit points from the spring season of the 2016 LCK Spring Split made them unable to qualify for the 2016 Season Korea Regional Finals as well.

At the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup they were drawn in round 1 against Afreeca. With their new coach Saroo they managed to sweep them 2-0 but lost in quarterfinals against SK Telecom T1 0-2.

2017 Season[edit]

Going into the 2017 Season MVP kept their roster unchanged and were rewarded with consistent performances that lead them to a 5th place finish in Spring Split after they lost the tiebreaker for 4th against Afreeca. Due to the playoff format they got the chance to take revenge in the wildcard round and took it before getting dominated in macro play by KT Rolster in round 2 of playoffs.

They struggled at the start of Summer Split losing 7 series in a row 0-2 which realistically already ended any hope of another playoff participation and in between they participated for the LCK at Rift Rivals but fell short in finals against LPL. They recovered to 8th place with a 6-12 record which meant that they saved their championship points from spring to participate in the Regional Finals where they lost in round 1 against Afreeca after threatening to reverse sweep them.

At the 2017 LoL KeSPA Cup they swept past amateur team Gangwon and bbq Olivers before getting drawn against world champions Samsung Galaxy where they expectedly stood no chance.

2018 Season[edit]

Going into the 2018 Season they decided to sign a second AD carry in Pilot who returned from his time abroad. Another pretty bad start in Spring Split ended up costing them this time as they despite recovering from 1-5 to 6-12 finished the split in 9th place which meant they had to defend their LCK spot in the promotion tournament. There they first faced Challenger playoff champions Ever8 Winners and turned the series around after losing game 1 before facing Griffin who went undefeated in regular season in the first qualifying round. This series went the opposite way as they won game 1 before getting dominated for the rest of it. In the second qualifying round against Kongdoo MVP was 2-1 up after 3 rather one-sided games. After they almost came back from a big deficit in game 4 they used their second matchpoint in a slow but dominating game to keep their place in LCK.

The coaching staff still had faith that the roster is good enough to compete in LCK and they managed to do well in the opening weeks of Summer Split despite the major meta changes. After the teams got used to the game state MVP fell off and went from 4-6 to 4-14 which meant another 9th place finish. In the promotion tournament they lost the series against Team BattleComics convincingly before avoiding relegation by dominating bbq in the elimination round. This meant they had a rematch against Team BattleComics where they were once against clean swept and therefore relegated to the Challenger Scene.

Following the relegation Ian, Pilot, Max, and ADD left the team to continue their careers somewhere else so MVP went into the 2018 LoL KeSPA Cup with some new players. Motive and Carrot moved up from sub to the starting roster and they signed rookie Garden and midlaner Edge from also relegated Kongdoo while MaHa moved to a coaching position. In their first match they had to face challenger team GC Busan Rising Star and were 0-2 swept by them.

2019 Season[edit]

Before the spring split they also signed Beware, Syu, Neulbo and iffy. They recovered from a 0-2 week 1 to 3-3 after 3 weeks whilst constantly swapping around their botlaners while Carrot was benched in favor of Beware as toplaner. They could not keep this positive trend going though and finished the split despite only winning one more series in 6th place barely avoiding directly dropping down to another promotion tournament.
