Los Angeles, California – July 27, 2013
– Today, vVv Gaming is proud to announce a
new aspiring team that is rapidly rising in the North
American Call of Duty scene.
In typical vVv fashion, this team is on the verge of something
great. With a leader in Folsom, who was formerly
a prominent sniper in the YouTube team, OpTic Gaming,
Freddy brings strong in-game communication and a professional
approach to the scene. Folsom's duo in Sham has stuck by his
teammate throughout the entire game securing 17th at MLG Dallas,
13th at Anaheim and just falling short with a 3rd place at UGC
Niagara. With the recent pickup of both Wolf and Legend to round
off their roster, this team, formerly of Dare, is hungry to
win and has a lot to prove.
vVv Gaming Roster:
Brennen "vVv Wolf" Lockhart |
Freddy "vVv Folsom" Gerard |
Tommy "vVv Legend" Bennett |
Tristan "vVv Sham" Eccles |
Coach: Angelique "vVv Luxx" Cherie |
With Sham and Wolf playing from Folsom's house for the next week
