History

Halo: Reach

VwS started out as a community Halo clan. As early as 2012, teams represented VwS at events, with the first notable instance being the roster of Stanley "Paradigm", "Suh Suh Sweet", Dylen "PROVERB" Roberts and "Juicebox 4oz" attending AGL 1 Chicago, where they finished in the top 8. At AGL 2 Columbus, the final major Halo: Reach event, a roster of Cody "NyceK" Szczodrowski, "Fault Line", Shane "WinntuR" Ward and "Xrossfade" competed as VwS Bible, finishing 5th.

Halo 4

At the MLG Fall Championship 2012 Halo 4 exhibition event, Kevin "Brake" Zimmerman, John-Kenry "NocturnalKernal" Greene, "SickStory" and "TheOnlyToxic" competed as VwS Empire. They finished in the top 24 at the event. At AGL 3 Chicago, WinntuR teamed with Tomell "Very Nerdy" Day, "Bullseye" and Justin "Broadside" Price as VwS Underrated. They finished 4th at AGL 3 and top 24 at AGL 5 Nashville. At AGL Nashville, VwS also sponsored the Severance team of "Aptitude", Gabriel "Gabriel" Funes-Soto, Faisal "Goofy" Khan and PROVERB. They finished 3rd as VwS G4C SvR.

At Gamers For Giving 2014, VwS fielded a roster of WinntuR, Casey "Sargoth" Current, Joshua "Tragic" Lingenkuel and Ayden "Suspector" Hill. They won the event. At Iron Games Toledo 2014, Sargoth and Tragic teamed with NyceK (now ContrA) and Devon "PreDevoNatoR" Layton, again taking 1st. For RTX 2014, Sargoth and Tragic reunited with Suspector and recruited Austin "Mikwen" McCleary. They took 5th place at the event.

Halo 2: Anniversary

For the PAX Prime Showdown 2014, VwS fielded a roster of Mikwen, Brett "Naded" Leonard, Goofy and Bryan "Legit" Rizzo as VwS USA. They finished 2nd. The same roster finished 4th at the ESL MCC Launch Invitational. For UGC St. Louis 2015, VwS fielded a roster of Suspector, WinntuR and Tragic alongside Kyle "Nemassist" Kubina. They finished in the top 12.
