Velocity Esports is a North American Esports organization. The team was founded by Matthew "RVAClassic" Sim in 2014. The team has renamed to Virginia Velocity in 2020.

History

Velocity did not attend Iron Games Columbus. Their first event for season 1 was UGC St. Louis, with a roster of Arbin, RobTheTurtle, CreepyTrash, and MoNsTcR. They took top 16 at the event. Velocity released CreepyTrash for eL ToWn and played in two HCS Cups, placing top 16, and top 8. They then announced that MoNsTcR had been released for Blaze. Within one week of the new roster practicing, Blaze was released and replaced by Suspector. Following this, Arbin and RobTheTurtle were released and they were replaced by Cratos and Nemassist. At Gamers For Giving 2015, Velocity faced off against 8th seeded Noble Black in their second round match. They were defeated 2-0, sending them to the Losers Bracket early. In the Losers Bracket, Velocity managed three straight sweeps against Goats R Us, iSo Essence, and Scorched Halo, securing themselves a top 12 placing. They then faced off against the 5th seeded Cloud9 for top 8. During a close standoff on Shrine, the team used a unique boost to get on top of their base which got a lot of attention in the Halo community. Velocity would be swept 3-0 in the series to finish top 12. Despite the impressive showing, it was not enough to earn Velocity a top 8 seed, so their season ended at Gamers For Giving.

Following Gamers For Giving, eL ToWn expressed displeasure on social media regarding his teammates, leading to his removal from Velocity. Shortly after TowN's departure, Velocity announced the signing of Bradley "iTz So Frosty" Bergstrom. However, this would not last, as they soon after replaced Frosty with Lifestyle. They soon placed top 16 in both of the preseason cups, earning themselves the 10th seed. At Iron Games Atlanta 2015, Velocity started off strong, upsetting Noble Black 2-1 before being swept 3-0 by Evil Geniuses. In the losers bracket, they swept eLevate 3-0 and were swept 3-0 by Cloud9. They lost to Noble Black in a consolation rematch to end their tournament with an 8th placing.[1] The following week, it was announced that Velocity's Halo team had left the organization, and that Velocity was seeking a new team to sponsor.[2] On April 26, Velocity acquired the former End Result roster of Krizen, Burton and DARKscorpion. This was short-lived however, as the roster disbanded soon after forming. On May 14, Velocity announced a new roster including a returning Burton as captain, alongside former SyA members Calm Mentality, JeRawockee and Blaze, as well as former Noble Black coach YosH. As Velocity did not acquire SyA seedholder Dewbron, they do not retain SyA's HCS points and seed. On June 17, RESTACKZ retires and Burton, Calm Mentality, JeRawockee, Blaze and YosH leave.

On November 1, Carter Musgrave takes ownership of Velocity eSports in search of a new Halo roster to represent Velocity in the Halo World Championship event. On November 18, Posey xR, Eccentrik, JuicyFruit, and TireIron join. December 13, Eccentrik is released and replaced with Prototype. December 15, Velocity decides to release their full roster of Posey xR, Prototype, JuicyFruit, and TireIron for disclosed reasons. On January 6, Velocity announced a new roster on Twitter consisting of Levy, Scaryotic, Danoxide and Kaotic Fours. On January 10, Levy, Scaryotic, Danoxide and Kaotic Fours disbanded.
