      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.

It's a cool Monday evening as we drive through the mountainous death trap that is known as West Virginia. I could hardly believe I had just traveled 30 hours, covering 1600 miles, just to coach a competitive gaming team for the weekend. A year ago, I was living in Hawaii working a regular nine to five job and spent the rest of my day casually gaming with my roommates and friends. I didn't imagine that video games would become a bigger part of my life than it already was. At the time, the only competitive experience I would get was competing in the local LAN tournaments for the Call of Duty series.

In November 2010, I came back to Chicago to spend the holidays with my family and friends that I hadn't seen in a while. Eventually, I decided that moving back to finish up my degree was what was best for myself as well as my family. Upon moving back, I realized that most of my friends were away at college. The first week back was awful, just schoolwork and barely anyone to hang out with. As I sat in my room puffing away at my hookah and searching through my contact list for anyone to hangout with, I crossed over a few names I hadn't seen in a while; Enter Kyle aka NBK.

At the time, Kyle was just an old friend I had made at our local hookah bar. I knew he was a gamer, just never saw him outside of the hookah bar. I gave him a call, and twenty minutes later I had my hookah packed up and was headed to his house. Now I thought I was a pretty hardcore gamer, that is until I got to Kyles. Two Xbox setups, two hookahs, and I watched him play Halo: Reach for hours non-stop practically steamrolling over most of the online competition. I tried my hand at Halo, but being a Call of Duty player, I got my ass handed to me. Being the competitive guy I am, I vowed to get at least get to be decent at Halo; too bad I wasn't warned about what I was getting myself into.

Months pass by, and I slowly realized I was developing a routine. Go to class, get my work done, stock up on hookah supplies for the day, then go to Kyles and game for hours; a routine that is still followed to this day. Over the past few months, I had completely stopped playing Call of Duty and began focusing on Halo. The majority of the time I spend on Halo was dedicated to custom games with Kyle and his teammates, just trying to get better. By no means was I on their level, but slowly I started noticing my stats getting progressively better when I played multi-player matchmaking. It was also around that time that I started to get involved with vVv.
