After this week, Kevin “PewPewU” Toy will be testing out the waters and leaving Melee It On Me. An exciting Marth Main, PewPewU has consistently performed well at nationals in both singles and doubles with his partner Zac “SFAT” Cordoni. At Apex 2015, he placed 9th in singles, narrowly missing the Top 8, but also managed to take down Liquid.Hungrybox in Winner’s bracket. To many, he embodies creativity and a strong will to overcome obstacles that stand in his way. As a team, we wish him nothing but the best.

MeleeItOnMe has given me countless opportunities and connections in the eSports world. My time with the team has been incredible, and the lessons I’ve learned over the past two years have helped me grow not only as a player, but as a person and community figure. It pains me to announce that I will be leaving the MeleeItOnMe team. I absolutely loved being a part of the MeleeItOnMe team and I wish them the absolute best. Sponsorships are often seen as impersonal business relationships in which a player is financed to promote their brand. This is far from the case with MIOM. The team has been a family to me and the most amazing support group a player could ask for. The best lesson I can take away from being a part of the team for the past couple of years is to work for yourself and to fully commit to your decisions. That said, I feel that my time with MIOM has come to a close and it is once again time to pursue my goals as a free agent. – Kevin “PewPewU” Toy

The rest of the MIOM team supports PewPewU.

PewPewU is that dude, and I’m glad that MIOM had the opportunity to support him in the little ways we could for the past 13 months. We’re proud to have Kevin as a MIOM alum, and I can’t wait to see the amazing he does in 2015 and beyond. – Bobby “Scar” Scarnewman

Kevin has been astounding, watching him grow as a player and set his sights higher and higher is something we’re accustomed to. Of course, we’ll miss him on the team, but we want the best for him. He’ll always be part of the family – Wynton “Prog” Smith
