To read about the Korean player of the same name, see Mvp.


MVP or Team MVP was a South Korean organization originally based in Incheon which owned a team house in Seoul. It was originally founded as a professional StarCraft II team mainly consisting of players from the MVP clan. Another Korean clan, Project Supreme, served as MVP's B-team with a team house in Incheon until this was disbanded in early 2012 to make way for MVP's new League of Legends division.

MVP roster: KeePing, Sniper, GuineaPig, TAiLS, Vampire, finale/duckdeok, Monster, KeeN, Dream and Noblesse

MVP enjoyed close relations with the American team compLexity Gaming, and a joint venture called coL.MVP was announced on 22 July 2011 whereby MVP's ace players, Genius and DongRaeGu would be representing both teams, and travel support would be provided by the American team. On the other hand, the Korean players would support compLexity in online team leagues, and would make their team house in Seoul available for compLexity's players who wish to train in Korea.[1] The partnership was further expanded on 23 August 2011, including all of MVP's players, together with sponsorship by Creative Sound Blaster.[2] The partnership came to an end on 17 April 2012.

MVP was one of the original members of the e-Sports Federation as announced on 30 March 2012, being one of the prominent competitors in the GSTL. However, on 16 November 2013, the team departed the eSF to join the KeSPA and participate in Proleague.[3]

In 2014 and 2015 they finished 7th place over all in Proleague. Their best result was a second place in 2014 Proleague Round 2 which also is the only time they made it to playoffs.

On December 3rd, 2016, it was announced that the team disbanded its StarCraft II division.[4]
