    • Join us for the new SWTOR Expansion!   10/27/2015

      Does doing the right thing always excite you? Do you follow the path of truth and righteousness despite how hard it can be sometimes? Do you love Jawas and think Ewoks are adorable? No? NEITHER DO WE! As the guild that invented the dark side before George Lucas even thought of it, vVv Gaming is looking for other fun, sociable gamers to join us in our never-ending quest to exterminate everything cute, cuddly, and Jedi.

      While we are newly coming back to SWTOR, we have had multiple top guilds across many MMOs including Rift, Aion, and Warhammer Online. In addition to SWTOR, we support a number of other titles including League of Legends, Rocket League, Heroes of the Storm and Guild Wars 2.


      With our own TeamSpeak server that we purchased to justify drinking alone, we offer a space for all of our members, applicants, and guests to come join us and enjoy each others' company while also enjoying the game. We also have a website and forums that allows everyone to stay connected regardless how bad your sleep schedule gets. 

      Join us! We have alcohol...

      If you're interested in joining, we have no skill or experience requirements, but we do ask that you bring your personality, charm, and interest in getting to know your fellow gamers. We aren't going to tell you to be mature or any of that bullshiz, because we're too busy having fun. Oh, and you'll probably want to be on The Harbinger server, since that's where we play. 

      To join us, log onto our TeamSpeak server at ts65.gameservers.com:9222 and find one of our officers (usually in the SWTOR Channel) and ask for an invite. If you like us and want to be a part of something truly despicable, feel free to fill out an application on our forums

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.
