Phong Vũ Buffalo (PVB) was a Vietnamese League of Legends team. They were previously known as Young Generation.
In November 2016, Saigon Jokers disbanded, Nevan, yT, Venus, Hafa (Naul), AD (BigKoro), and Suicunee (Palette) who were Saigon Jokers trainees decided to form Young Generation and start all over again from VCS A 2017 Spring Promotion
The team ended the VCS A Spring Promotion group stage at 1st place, with a 5-1 record. Advancing to 2nd and 3rd round, Young Generation swept Hue Audora and Cherry Esports with the 2-0 record, officially qualified for VCS A 2017 Spring. In the team early days, they didn't have any sponsor, gaming house or even fan, the players had to use their own money to maintain the team; however, none of them came from a well-to-do family. Luckily, QTV who was Friends Forever Gaming owner helped the team with training facilities and allowed them to sleep over at his PC Bang.
In their first split playing professionally, Young Generation played extremely well and finished 2nd place in VCS A 2017 Spring, the only team that they could not defeated is Marines Esports, YG was swept 0-3 in the Final. After NIXWATER and Nevan left, Ren joined and became the team leader. Thanks to Marines Esports miracle run at 2017 Mid-Season Invitational, GPL got the second slot at Worlds and Vietnam got 2 slots at GPL 2017 Summer as well. They finished 2nd in VCS A 2017 Summer and was only lost to Marines Esports again.
YG ended GPL 2017 Summer group stage with a 7-1 record, advancing to 2nd round facing Ascension Gaming as they lost 2-3 and fell to loser bracket. The teams met again at the loser bracket final in order to gain their slot for Worlds 2017, losing the first 2 games of the series but they made a reverse swept, ending the match at 3-2.
Finished Worlds 2017 Play-In group stage with a 2-2 record, placed 2nd. Losing to the 2nd round to Team WE (0-3), YG came back to Vietnam with cheer while GAM was blamed for their disappointed performance. Thanks to this record, Young Generation won at WeChoice Award with 53297 votes.
Without changing anything, YG came up short at VCS 2018 Spring with the 4th place.
Coming to summer, YG decided to release yT and Venus and Ren moved to head coach, Zeros, Meliodas and Xuhao joined. The team rebranded to Phong Vũ Buffalo after they received a huge sponsorship from Phong Vũ Computer. They then won VCS 2018 Summer with ease and represented Vietnam as an independent region at Worlds 2018 Main Event. Although the team failed to make it out of group, they still managed to bring Flash Wolves home with them, 'Thank Mr Buffalo'.
The Buffalo started the group stage with three wins before Bombers and 1907 Fenerbahçe took games off of them in the second round of the round robin. Fenerbahçe also finished 4-2 to force a tiebreaker game, which Phong Vũ won to advance to the knockout stage.
Team Liquid swept Phong Vũ to send the Buffalo to face off against Vega Squadron for the final MSI Main Stage spot. The Buffalo jumped out to a 2-0 series lead before Vega took games three and four to tie the series. The fifth game was a back and forth affair before Phong Vũ aced Vega with the help of a triple kill by Naul to give the team the lead it needed to get the ball rolling and win the game.
Phong Vũ was unsuccessful in the main stage of MSI until it faced G2 on day three where the Vietnamese squad won its first game of the round robin. Phong Vũ won again versus G2 on day five, but could pick up no other wins and left the tournament after a sixth place finish in the group stage.
Before the summer split, Phong Vũ renamed to Dashing Buffalo to match their new sponsor.
