Los Angeles, Californiandash; July 27, 2013ndash;nbsp;Today, vVv Gaming is proud to announce a newnbsp;aspiringnbsp;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 anbsp;prominentnbsp;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,nbsp;is hungry to win and has a lot to prove.
