Most Valuable Gaming Signs APEX 2013 Champion Salem



On October 8th 2016, New Jersey's Saleem "Salem" Aklel Young announced that he will be joining Most Valuable Gaming, becoming the third player on its active Super Smash Bros for Wii U roster.


For the uninitiated, Salem is a top player and one of the best Smash Wii U Bayonetta specialists in the world. As of lately, Salem has gone through a winning streak of tournaments in the past few months and has had impressive wins against the best top players in bracket such as Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios, Nairobi "Nairo" Quezada and Gavin "Tweek" Dempsey.

His most recent tournament win was Little Big House 2 where he defeated Yuta "Abadango" Kawamura, who is ranked 5th on Panda Global Smash Wii U Rankings and the best Mewtwo specialist in the world. Salem is also known for his victory at one of the most historic Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournaments, APEX 2013.

MVG League is a tournament organizing company and team of Smashers based in Arizona and Florida. Getting signed on with MVG League is a huge accomplishment for Salem in terms of his Super Smash Bros. career. Sharing the same sponsor as Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman and Andrew "ScAtt" Huntley can only make him work harder than ever to continue his excellent tournament performance.

Please do not forget to subscribe to MVG's YouTube for their weekly tournament vods and to follow them on Twitter for any announcements or updates on MVG League. For any updates and upcoming tournaments that Salem will be attending, follow him on Twitter. Stay tuned for more MVG and Salem related news on SmashBoards.

Salem's ZSS at Apex 2013 was what truly brought to the competitive side of smash.
Good to see him back like this.

Aba's 5th on the PGR, not 6th.

Grats to Salem. His Bayonetta is legitimately magic.

It's a shame Brawl is effectively dead, I'd love to see his ZSS back in action.
Why else would I want Wolf back, his exclusion was sad and the idea of being a "Clone of Fox" is bullcrap! Either way, kudos to Salem for having been signed to a normally southern league. Of course I'm pissed that Bayo still finds her way to be the Umbra ***** that she is especially long after the Bayo hammer, but good thing Salem found his way around it. First Abadango now him, who's next Cosmos? (would be awesome for all Corrin mains but a guy can dream for another guy right?)

I am hosting Brawl exhibition matches, this week on thursday to try and build a community, just saying. It is not big enough to warrant anything, but it will be on youtube. I hope it works out because I do not know if something will come up or if it will work to well or not.

When one man tries to revive a portion of a community that has been long overlooked thanks to one thing... pointless tripping. Is this exhibition close?

He goes by Salem and mains Bayonetta, a witch. If that's not intentional that's an awesome coincidence.

Congrats either way though.

Salem... Dumb...? Witch...? Ohhh I see the connection he was aiming at Salem is famous for all those witch hunt thingies that goes on every October, honestly tho could be both coincidences.

Correct me if im wrong but Salem's name was Salem well before Smash 4's release (and therefore has nothing to do with Bayonetta)
