In a surprise announcement that has the entire Starcraft 2 community giddy with excitement, premier North American eSports organization Complexity Gaming, and South Korean Starcraft 2 team MvP, has announced a joint partnership with two of MvP's players.

Both Min-Soo 'Genius' Jung and Soo Ho 'DongRaeGu' Park will from now on sport a coL.MvP tag for their ingame names and will represent both Complexity and MvP in future Starcraft 2 tournaments not only in South Korea, but also all over the world.

The Protoss powerhouse 'Genius', is mostly known for his first place finish at Blizzcon 2010 for Starcraft 2 after defeating the Chinese Terran beast Yi 'Loner' Dai. He would go on to compete in the Global Starcraft 2 League, where he would reach the round of 8 in the second GSL Open, and so far this has been his highest achievement in the GSL.

The Zerg monster 'DongRaeGu' or 'DRG', as he is called by his loving fans, is notorious for his hilarious antics on screen, but also for his monster like ability to destroy his opponents. His greatest achievement in tournaments would be his first place finish at the LG Cinema 3D Special League, where he took home $9320 after defeating Seung-Chul 'sC' Kim.

Founder and CEO of Complexity Gaming released this statement:

"We are very happy to make this long term commitment to MVP and to StarCraft 2,” said Jason Lake, founder and CEO of compLexity Gaming. “The Korean community is a global powerhouse and we’re confident the addition of DongRaeGu and Genius will allow compLexity to continue our success on the stage of global gaming. Thanks very much to Choi at MVP for his amazing cooperation and vision and thanks to our sponsors SoundBlaster, PNY and Origin for making this dream a reality. We look forward to working along side our Korean friends and humbly ask for the support of their vibrant community.”

“MVP is very excited to work with one of the most famous gaming teams in the world,” said Choi Yoon Sang, manager of MVP. “We are extremely confident that this partnership will expand both our brand and the gaming experiences of DongRaeGu and Genius. Complexity approached us in a very respectful manner and the negotiations made it clear this is a great deal for both parties. I am very excited for the future."

The partnership also allows joint cooperation on various endeavors for both their teams. In international events both DRG and Genius will sport jerseys with a Complexity logo with a MvP logo, and in Korean events they will wear jerseys with the MvP logo then a Complexity logo.

Also the current members of Complexity's Starcraft 2 squad will also be allowed to train at the MvP team house in Korea, if they wish to train with Korean players. Complexity will also be providing international travel support for its current two members in the partnership as well.
