Just over a year ago I had applied for vVv Gaming, not really knowing anything about competitive gaming or what vVv even was. To me, I was just a MMO gamer looking for a guild to call home. At first I was actually quite skeptical about a guild that would call themselves vVv Gaming as it sounded more like a business rather then an actual guild name. In time, I had made quite a few friends within the community, learned about the state of competitive gaming and eventually took on the prefix vVv for myself. This last year has been quite an interesting trip for me, I've had both good and difficult times, but when I came to the forums or vent, everything else would just go away. But even after all of that I wondered... who are all these people I now considered friends? In a mere two and a half days, that question answered itself.
I headed to Washington D.C. last weekend with quite an open mind, both towards the MLG event and about all the members of vVv that I would soon meet. At first it was kind of an awkward moment, I was walking all around National Harbor and yet I didn't see one person with a vVv logo. Thankfully I had technology on my side! I hopped onto my phone and started posting on twitter and the shoutbox trying to figure out where everyone was. Suddenly I got a call from Paradise and he told me everyone was across the street at a different hotel.
