A new eSports team has formed! Created by former Smashers Alan "SamuraiPanda" Bunney and David "Mashumaro" Wu, Panda Gaming is not only a Fighting Game team, but also an eSports agency. SamuraiPanda and Mashumaro are two best friends who used to be top players in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as well as MOBAs such as League of Legends. SamuraiPanda is also a moderator here on Smashboards.
Panda Gaming talked little bit more about themselves on their official press release. Here's what they had to say: "The idea that started Panda Gaming is simple: Too many of David and Alan's friends were not getting what they deserved from sponsorships. eSports teams were treating them like commodities instead of athletes, and they couldn't stand it anymore. Panda Gaming is a mutli-level approach to an agency. Players can sign to the team or the agency (or both) and Panda Gaming will represent them to help them achieve and reach the level they deserve!"
Along with top MvC3 player "Filipino Champ", three Smash Wii U pros are now part of Panda Gaming: Eric "ESAM" Lew, Jetstise "MVD" Negron, and Shane "SS" Bruce. ESAM and MVD are two of Florida's best players who main Pikachu and Duck Hunt respectively. SS is a Ness/Villager main who as been tearing up the Arizona scene, boasting an impressive #1 rank on their power rankings. You can cheer on Panda Gaming's ESAM and MVD by watching CEO 2015 this weekend.
