      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

      vVv Gaming Presents: ADL Season 10!   08/12/2016

      TL;DR: Season 10 of the vVv Gaming LoL ADL begins Friday, August 19th @9pm EST/6pm PST! Discord Info              Just be on Discord at the check in time and have a level 30 with at least 16 champions to participate! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ vVv Gaming has had a long history in competitive e-sports; and, while the LCS may be a long way off for the organization, we can still participate in semi-competitive LoL activities as a community. The ADL has, and will continue to be, our main way to achieve this. However, let’s be honest, the ADL has had a rough time over the past few seasons. This comes from both participant enjoyment, as well as coordination and structuring of the event as a whole. While I do not plan on completely fixing the system from the start, I do believe that there are some short (and long) term changes that can make the experience better for everyone: ·         We are keeping participation points for this season, as well as the Elo ranking system used for previous seasons. ·         We will have people recruiting more in the game from the community, and attempt to bring more LoL community members to the discord that we feel would be good for the vVv community. ·         We will be implementing new rules for the drafting phase. Some of these rules will be introduced as the season progresses and are covered below. ·         Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is no information regarding a prize. If a viable prize method/opportunity comes about in the future, current season winners will be rewarded retroactively. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rules and Details (Read if new):          Nights will consist of two matches per night. You must be able to attend both games (Don’t be that guy, play it out).          Be on Discord NO LATER than 8:55pm EST/5:55pm PST for Check In. This will be slowly changed to 8:45pm EST as the season progresses. We want the drafting phase this season to be as smooth as possible.  We want to give people time to announce their roles before hand.           Check in will happen in the ADL Check In Discord Channel BEFORE players move to the regular ADL channel, and at 9:00pm EST people will move to channels matching their Dynamic Queue rank. Missing the check-in deadline means that you will not be able to participate that night and will not receive a participation point.          During the Check In, participants will announce their top 3 preferred roles for a staff member to place in a spreadsheet (Discord does not allow for your descriptions to be changed, that I am aware of).          Have a level 30 account, at least 16 champions, and be ready to have some fun!          Additional Questions? Contact vVv Eternal or vVv Yui        The ADL will last for 10 weeks this season, there will then be a three-week break before the next season starts (Currently scheduled for Nov. 11, 2016).        Cheating or Smurfing in the ADL is not permitted. Anyone caught doing either of these this will be suspended from the ADL, no exceptions. Cheating will result in a permanent suspension, smurfing will result in a 5-week suspension.  New Drafting Process: So, in previous seasons of the ADL, the highest ranked players were given the priority in being team captains for any given night. While this was not a bad system, it did leave some players feeling left out over the course of the season. That being said: ·         Highest ranked players will no longer be automatically chosen as the team captain. ·         Team captains will be chosen by the number of participation points that a player has (you earn 1 point for each night you attend, REGARDLESS of whether or not you are picked). ·         No player can be captain more than once every 4 weeks (depending on overall participation). ·         The first weekend will have captains from an arbitrary division and lower. So here is my logic (bear with me). With some outlying cases, most of the team captains would pick from highest available skill in a role down, until all of the top players (and a few peoples friends) were picked. I don’t expect this to change at all; however, this allows for both new and lower skill level players and community members, as well as frequent participants, to always have a shot at playing. They also get the benefit of knowing (eventually) in advance that they will be captains. Additional Information: I would like to try and address the speed of the drafting process. For now, the primary way of doing this will be the check-in time; however, if another feasible method is suggested, any changes will be updated in this section. After the Games: ·         Players will join the winning team's discord channel, and all players will be given feedback if they desire it. ·         Players may also provide criticism and suggestions for the ADL. (We are still seeking to improve the event if the community desires it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More Darn Rules ·         Teams will still be matched by alphabetical order of Discord channel for the time being. ·         The winner of the first match will play the winner of the second (both matches are played out simultaneously), and the same goes for the losing teams. ·         The higher team alphabetically will be chosen to be on the blue side for the first game, and the lower team will get blue side when the second game is played. Leaving/AFK: If someone leaves a game for any reason and does not reconnect, they will be given a 2-night suspension from the ADL. The player may appeal the suspension with an ADL Staff member if there was a legitimate reason for the disconnect. However, all appeals must happen at least 24 hours before the next ADL event. You also may only appeal a disconnect once per season. Pausing: Players may pause the game for UP TO 10 minutes if a player on their team is having connection issues. PLAYERS MUST INFORM AN ADL STAFF MEMBER IF A GAME IS PAUSED. If the reason cannot be resolved in 10 minutes, the team whose player disconnected will concede the match. If the enemy team agrees, they may also use their 10-minute pause to give the other team more time. Teams only get two pauses per game. Replacement Players: Player replacement will be handled the same as in previous seasons. A player may be replaced by another player of the same rank or lower, provided both teams agree to the replacement. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So that’s it folks.  Thank you for sticking through the whole announcement, we understand it is somewhat lengthy, however the information had to be provided.  You are now ready for the 10th season of the ADL! If you have any questions feel free to contact vVv Eternal     See you on Friday, August 19th at 8:55pm EST/6:00pm PST!     ADL Staff: vVv Eternal   To join the discussion click here!

      Changes to Community Game Nights   09/13/2016

      Thank you to everyone who participated in week’s survey.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants the previous week, staff availability, and looking at conflicts with other tournaments, we have decided to make changes to our Wednesday Night Tournaments.  Moving forward, as of Thursday, September 22nd, team tournaments will be hosted on Thursdays as opposed to Wednesdays.

Hello, vVv Members and DJ Hero lovers! For those DJ Hero fan(boy?)s out there (WOOOHOO MEEEEE!!!) we know that there is going to be a release of a DJ Hero 3. There hasn't been any clues yet to show us what will be in the game.

In DJ Hero 2 that was released on October 19th, 2010(?) There were a few new features such as: Freestyle cross-fades, scratching and of course the freestyle samples that actually took samples from the song.

Now, for some of MY ideas that i believe should be in DJ Hero 3:

  • Song creation.
-I am pretty sure that song creation came into Guitar Hero World Tour for the first time. (Correct me if i'm wrong.) So why not make DJ Hero 3 have some song creation. That'd be really awesome and i'm sure it would create a more competitive experience for those who like to play other peoples' songs on GH. Don't you feel like if you FC their song or whatever, you get some good feeling like you totally raped their songs nuts? I'm not sure about some people, but that would be a pretty good feeling lol.. :P


  • Freestyle mode

-A freestyle mode that will allow the player(s) to access Quickplay or XboxLIVE Battle Online to have an opportunity to show your real DJ-ing skills. What the player(s) must do is complete a whole song with JUST freestyles. Including Freestyle samples, Cross-fades, and freestyle scratching. The song will not have lyrics, but just a beat; the music without lyrics. 2 players can go head-to-head and test your freestyle skills, and whoever has the most successful freestyles and most points at the end of the song wins!(my friend actually gave me this idea, and i sort of put more details in it.)

  • More "Back in the day" Artists
-We all love different genres of music of course, and some of us like modern day music, some like older music, and some of us just like both! So why not add in some more old-school Hip-Hop from back in the day. In DJ Hero 1 there was Jurassic 5, Tupac, ODB, and others. I am a fan of old-school and modern hip-hop and i really like the underground genre of some. What i want to see in DJ Hero 3 is some mixes with Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang, Jurassic 5, and others. (Those are just some artists that I myself like.)


  • The real deal..

-In DJHero 2 there was a bundle that gave you 2 turntables. What really disappointed me was that you weren't able to use them during Quickplay. So here's my idea: If you own, or plan on buying another Turntable, or you're just going to get the DJ Hero 3 bundle, you should be able to use those 2 turntables in Quickplay and XboxLIVE Battle Mode Online. It would test your real skill as a DJ. (Yes i know, being a real DJ is a tad bit more complicating :P) but this is for that real DJ feel. You'll have one turntable, the mixer(cross-fader, effects-knob, euphoria button) then another turntable. There also should be a separate leaderboard for those who will use the 2 turntables to see the best of the best!

So yeah. Those are my ideas i have for the upcoming DJ Hero 3. If you have any ideas yourself, please feel free to post some! I'm planning on sending my ideas in to see if the creators will listen. haha. These are some pretty nice ideas, i mean it would give people a whole new perspective on the game believe it or not! :D

For those who play DJHero 2 you will probably agree with me on this. I'm only writing this blog to just show people how stupid and boring DJHero 2 online is.

Basically what i am trying to say is that the amount of legitimate players is very scarce. I can only find a game with someone who is on Expert every 5-8 matches. The Online Battle Leaderboard, to me, is full of boosters. I'm not the only one who thinks so.

I think that the Leaderboards should be divided by what difficulty you play, and should only get paired up with your difficulty you're on. That only makes the leaderboards fair.

For example: The #1 player on the Battle leaderboards for DJHero 2 is some guy named KING T LOVE. He right now is 230-0. Yes, he DOES play on Medium Difficulty.

This is what the leaderboard looks like.

1. KING T LOVE 230-0

2. drAAvy 193-1

3. MikeJones 90-1

4. xZaccc 75-0

5. GTIAndy 243-4

6. DannyBoy2k9 58-1

7. Akatsuki Sw1tch 56-0

8. vVv mDaWg 49-1 (Reset due to illegitimate players) WAS i think was 5, 6, or 7 hundred and something - 5?

9. SI CHarMiiN 89-2

10. tjc zone 31 42-1

MY RANK: 18. ii LIKE CAKE 29-0(Reset due to illegitimate players.) I dont remember what i was before.

Before any of you say that i'm 'Complaining' or 'Whining', i'm not. The only ones i believe are legit players are vVv mDaWg, and GTIAndy. That's only because i have either played with them, or i obviously know how good they are. If i were to see what difficulty each player actually played on then i would apologize for making accusations. Once again, i am just a little suspicious because of the amount of medium boosters.

Now, this isn't really 'Proof', but one of my good Online friends of DJHero, EL OG Loco, is one of the best players i've seen in a long long time.I am not sure the last time he lost a game, but he should not be ranked at what he is now because he is an excellent DJHero player. Here are his stats on the Battle Leaderboards:

231. EL OG Loco 376-52

To me, he should really not have 52 losses.

This isn't the longest Blog Entry ever, but i felt that i had to let everyone know how people are on DJHero 2 Online.

Sorry if it sounds like im complaining.

Thanks for your time(who knows if you even care)

The CoD Series Review

We all know the huge 'Call of Duty' series that seems to gain the attention of so many people, but then that attention seems to go away after a new game of the series is released. The most popular 'Call of Duty' games (to most) are Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops.

Call of Duty 4 has plenty of things that is so great about it. The easy quick-scoping, decent recoil, nice hit detection, and players who are actually strategic.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 may be popular all over the globe, but has a lot wrong with it that needs to be fixed so the people still playing it can enjoy the game like CoD 4. Much like CoD 4, the quick-scoping is a huge fad. MW2 has so many cheap ways to kill people IMO. Noob-Tubes that can destroy a whole team in one explosion, insane knife lunges (even without commando) and ridiculous modding. If only there were a way to stop it all, and make the so-called 'Franchise' feel more realistic and not just running around like an idiotic soldier.

Now, Call of Duty: Black Ops. So many things wrong with it - So many things great about it. The killstreak rewards do not add on to your next killstreak, theres actually recoil to the guns to make it seem a bit realistic, and the sniping is more strategic and realistic. Most people do not like the sniping in Black Ops, but i really enjoy it.

What makes the game somewhat bad and unfair are the terrible spawns (Worse than MW2), Incredibly bad hit detection, and overpowered guns (just like MW2.)

Now, if you are into Objective type of playlists and games, then any of these call of duties are perfect for you. The objective type games are all the same and are fun to play with friends! Strategy and teamwork is always the key to winning so either party chat or stay in game chat to communicate with your teammates so you can be victorious!

TDM, and FFA are good playlists if you like to play alone, or with a team, but just to get kills and annihilate the opposing team.

Perks have not been a problem besides Commando(MW2), and Juggernaut(CoD4). All the other perks are fair, and reasonable.

The Guns in all of the CoDs are really great, but some are over-powered which most people dislike.' If you can't beat 'em, Join 'em! '

To end this entry, i would just like to say that after having experiences with all of the [Well known] Call of Duties, i suggest getting Black Ops, and CoD4 for having strategic gameplay and the most fair gameplay experiences.

-This is my first blog entry ever so im not sure how it is, but i hope you agree with my opinions on these games!
