Fragbite has learned that Vexed Gaming is trying out a new team in the form of Vexed Academy. The team has played under the organizations banner during both Home Masters and the now ongoing Legend Series #3, two tournaments that the organization's been supporting them over.
"Currently we have had an agreement to support the team over two tournaments, after these tournaments, we may discuss the possibility of moving forward with a longer deal", the organizations COO Mark Weller told Fragbite.
The roster for Legend Series #3 contains the former NiP-member Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi, two more Swedes and two players from Lithuania. The team has also been playing under Vexed during Home Masters, with a different lineup around Tim "DEFINE" Möller.

According to Weller, the above-mentioned information about the Academy team was previously correct. Weller later changed his position on this and has confirmed that Mourujärvi was only a stand-in and not a part of the Academy team.
The only player who is said to have ties with the organization is Tim "DEFINE" Möller who according to his Twitter, plays under the organization's Academy team. The rest of the players have no connection with the academy team.
