If you've been a follower/fan of VexX since 2013 when we started, then you might remember the glory days when we had a Pro League team, you might remember when we had one of the top NA CS:GO teams, you might even remember when we we're top 3 in Gears of War!! We have had a lot of successes in the past ( and a lot of failures as well ) but it was mainly due to our ability to find top upcoming players and unfortunately we never took the right approach to continue to grow at the rate we were. In time, as Esports got bigger in North America it became harder for us to continue to try and compete with the top organizations and we began to fall aside.
Well, we're happy to say that we've come up with a new course of action and it's very familiar to us!! Our goal will be one of a "stepping stone" or even and "academy" of sorts. The focus will be to find upcoming talent in the scene at the semi-professional level and help them move forward with their careers! Will be able to help brand them, market them, get them streaming & creating YouTube videos and of course competing online and at LAN events. The next step will be working with the other bigger named organizations out there and helping our players move onto bigger things after their term in almost compete with VexX, eventually after a few of our goals are hit will have a separation of sides and will have professional teams along with semi-professional teams ( like VexX.Gears and VexX.Acad ) in order to not only compete with the top level organizations out there but also to continue to grow Esports overall.
If you look at our past we've been able to do this with a lot of top players, we've had the pleasure of working with a few now World Champions when they we're up-comers and feel like this is where we excel in the scene. So we're taking on this "stepping stone" role head on and jumping back into games like Call of Duty, Gears of War, Counterstike and maybe even star to support a few upcoming games like Battlerite and more!! If things go as planned by 2020 will have all the resources we need to move forward with being the professional organization we've always envisioned.
We're so thankful for everyone's support of the past few years and will be working hard to make this year and awesome year!! With new players, new apparel, better streams, new video creators and more 2018 is looking great for us and we can't wait to get things rolling!! #VexXFam
