Overview[edit]

Team Nv is an international eSports team based in Australia and one of the leading professional teams in the SEA region. The team was formed on the 12th of February 2012 by reputable tournament host Derek "Dox" Reball (manager and sponsor), and featured many former members of the now disbanded Archaic esports team. Originally Invidia, the team announced a title partnership with Plantronics in April 2012, where they re-branded to their now-known title of GAMECOM Nv. In November 2012, Team Nv announced the addition of a Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360) division.

Trivia[edit]

  • Upon announcing the team it was also revealed that the team would "attend an MLG event in 2012."[5]
  • The team originally launched as Invidia, however later changed to Nv
  • In Latin, the name "Invidia" translates to "Envy".
  • The clan tag is "Nv" which also sounds out as "Envy" when the letters are pronounced.
  • Before the team was announced a series of clues including the logo, clan name and player silhouettes were released and left to the SEA server public to solve.
  • Team owner Dox, in his blog, said that in 2012, he invested $26,659 of his own money in the team to pay for flights, accommodation and team jerseys. Of these, $2,216 were to be refunded by ESL, whilst head sponsor GAMECOM refunded $2,500. As a result, GAMECOM decided to provide an "EXTREMELY generous deal" for 2013.[6]
