Vegetables Esports Club started out in 2015, when Ben “Merlini” Wu, Austin “Capitalist” Walsh, Jacob “Maelk” Toft-Andersen, Kevin “Purge” Godec, and Monib “Monib” Baray registered for the Shanghai Major.
The commentators’ team participated in the Summit 5 and Shanghai Major open qualifiers for the North American region.
The team took the 3rd-4th place in the NA Shanghai Major Open Qualifiers and 8th-11th place in the Summit 5 qualifiers. Their lack of presence in other tournaments is mostly due to being a casual Dota 2 team with limited time for training and competition.
Since the team’s inception, Monib was replaced by William “Blitz” Lee. The Veggies registered former Evil Geniuses manager Charlie Yang as their official substitute, in March 2016.
Vegetables Esports Club registered for The International 6 Americas Open Qualifiers with a modified lineup. Veteran players Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier and Ioannis “Fogged” Loucas will compete in lieu of Maelk and Purge. Purge is on vacation with family.
