Overview[edit]

Gen.G esports, formerly known as KSV eSports (Korea + Silicon Valley) is a professional esports organization created in 2017 in collaboration between Silicon Valley and Seoul. KSV's first announced team was Seoul Dynasty, a franchise participating in the inaugural season of Overwatch League. In May of 2018 they decided to rebrand their organization under the new name of Gen.G esports.

In October 2017, it was announced that KSV acquired the rosters of two Korean Heroes of the Storm teams - MVP Black and MVP Miracle. [1] This acquisition took effect after BlizzCon 2017, where the name MVP Black was still used. The first Heroes tournament for KSV is the 2017 Gold Club World Championship.

Due to official restrictions by Blizzard, KSV eSports was not allowed to acquire more than one team for the HGC season of 2018, therefore having to drop their roster of KSV Miracle.
