MVP is a Korean professional gaming organization based in South Korea.
MVP first signed League of Legends teams in May 2012, forming MVP Blue, MVP White, and MVP Red. MVP Red disbanded a few months later, but White and Blue went on to participate in multiple seasons of Champions. In February 2013, the organization shuffled the rosters of the two teams, and White (now renamed to Ozone) became the flagship team. With a roster of Homme, DanDy, Dade, imp, and Mata, Ozone won Champions Spring 2013 with a 3-0 sweep of CJ Blaze in the finals. In Septermber 2013, Samsung Electronics acquired both MVP lineups, forming Samsung Ozone and Samsung Blue.
In the 2016 Challenger Series, MVP remained undefeated (10 wins, 4 ties) to secure 1st place in the splint split, earning them a bye straight to the Challengers Korea 2016 Spring Playoffs. Although they lost to ESC Ever in 2:3, they still secured a spot for the LCK 2016 Summer Promotion where they beat Kongdoo Monster in 3:1 fashion to secure their spot for the 2016 Summer Split. They finished 6th in the regular split with ADD, Beyond, MaHa, Max and Ian on the roster. Though unable to attend the 2016 Summer Playoffs, the team secured their spot for the upcoming 2017 Spring Split.
Entering the 2017 Spring Split, the team performed well enough in the middle of the pack to secure a playoff spot by ranking 5th in the split. In the first round of the playoffs, they swept through Afreeca Freecs 2:0 but in the next round they were unable to win a single match against KT Rolster. They end their spring split at 4th place to secure 30 championship points.
