MVP Ozone is one of three teams founded by the StarCraft 2 team MVP. It was bought out by Samsung Electronics in September 2013, and is now Samsung Galaxy Ozone.

History

The gaming team MVP created its League of Legends teams in May 2012, creating MVP White, MVP Blue and MVP Red. MVP White would have strong showings in the major tournaments they entered in 2012, winning the best Korean amateur league, NLB Summer 2012, placing 2nd at CPL Shenyang 2012 winning over Chinese team OMG and losing to one of the nation's best, Invictus Gaming, then coming in 3rd at another Asian international, International e-Culture Festival 2012. Winter of 2012 brought along the opportunity to play in Korea's most competitive professional league, OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013 after qualifying along with sibling team MVP Blue. The team would play solid during group stage and advance to the playoffs then losing quickly to NaJin Sword 3-0, who went on to win the OGN Winter. Eliminated from OGN, White would continue to play in NLB Winter 2012-2013. The team would come in 6th for OGN and 5th for NLB.

After the Winter season, MVP would announce changes to their teams, renaming MVP White to MVP Ozone, acquiring the team of GSG and shuffling around the roster for both Ozone and Blue. The newly revamped MVP Ozone entered OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 in April 2013. Going 2-2 in groups would be enough for them to advance to playoffs, where the MVP roster changes would shine. They first faced against KT Rolster B and able to conquer them in a 3-1 set. They went to the semis against newly popular team, SK Telecom T1 2 but bested them 3-1, advancing to the Finals against the veteran powerhouse favorites, CJ Entus Blaze. In a huge upset, Ozone would dominate the Blaze team in a sweep 3-0, winning OGN Spring and claiming a spot as one of the new top teams in Korea and the world.

Expectations were high for MVP going into HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013. Coming out top in their group stage going into playoffs, they would face new team Chunnam Techno University but besting them 3-0. In the semifinals, it would be one of the more anticipated match ups of the brackets, with Ozone facing the strongly re-modified SK Telecom T1. Able to pull a game off the opponent losing 1-3, Ozone would succumb to T1, who would eventually become the Summer champions. They would go to the 3rd placement match against CJ Entus Frost and in an exciting best of five back and forth match, MVP would take 3rd place in OGN Summer 3-2. SK T1 would win 1st over KT Rolster Bullets which would prove important for MVP as that would mean they clinched 2nd in the Korean Circuit Points, therefore winning them a coveted spot to go to the US to play in the Season 3 World Championship alongside NaJin Black Sword and SK Telecom T1.

In September 2013, the announcement occurred that major electronics corporation Samsung would acquire both MVP Ozone and MVP Blue to play under the names Samsung Galaxy Ozone and Samsung Galaxy Blue.
