    Community sets new vVv Donation Drive Record! The Fall Donation Drive ended Friday night and Rob and I could not be more proud! In November, we announced the Fall Donation Drive to give everyone the opportunity to contribute to the growth of vVv Gaming in a vital way, with the help of a few incentives. These perks range from vVv wristbands and t-shirts, to our limited edition vVv jerseys. Also, the top donor would not only get the ulimate package, but would eventually win the opportunity to fly out and stay the weekend in the vVv Gaming house in Los Angeles, Californa on an all expenses paid trip. View from the back patio from the vVv house in Los Angeles In previous drives we have successfully redesigned our entire site, designed and printed the official vVv Jerseys and sponsored entire events for competitive teams. With the addition of our competitive LoL team and our focus on talent in 2014, this donation drive helps vVv Gaming continue to pursue new heights in eSports! The community continues to exceed our expectations and will surely start us off on the right foot for 2014! Our original goal was to reach a total donation of $3,000. That goal was broken with ease in early December thanks to two of our top donors, vVv Chrono and vVv Tak. With over 40 people donating during this one month period, we were able to break our stretch goal of $4,500! When it was all said and done, vVv Chrono would be our eventual winner of the all expenses paid trip to the vVv Gaming house after he donated a hefty $700! And as promised, LordJerith matched the community donation penny for penny! Total raised from our Fall Donation Drive: $4,784 (Donations) + $4,784 (LordJerith) = $9568! This Fall not only marks our most successful drive ever, but it surpassed our previous high by almost $2000! This proves the passion and dedication this great community possess for eSports and vVv Gaming alike! We are humbled by the the number of people who are willing to help vVv grow and continue to be successful. I want to extent a thank you to the following people who continue to help with the growth of vVv Gaming during this very important time:

    Sooo Question for everyone

    So I get pretty bored in my off time, I'm not always able to meet up with my friends and the rest of the cod division to play every night because obviously people have lives lol and I was wondering what PC games most of you play that maybe I could pick up I'm really trying to find something to where I am able to play with friends and the community I really dislike gaming by myself as I get terribly bored I can grind CoD all day but I would rather have fun chatting with some friends so I'm just wondering What games you all would suggest, and if you say a game maybe say the server you're on and I can try to join you I'm kinda looking at this as a way to get to know the rest of the community even though I want to be part of the CoD division I would like to get to know more than just the Cod area because vVv is one big family so like say you suggest WoW be like: Title : Server: Character name World of Warcraft: Sargeras : Sailox something like that I can obviously see some of the games we have already in vVv but I also know a lot of you guys know some of them hidden treasures that are just amazing games like Phantasy Star Online was for Dreamcast and Gamecube Also I can def tell you what games I currently play and what not if you'd like to join me Path of Exile World of Warcraft League of Legends (I'm kinda bad sorry) Hearthstone Diablo 3 Minecraft these are games I currently have but curious about other suggestions people may have

    Reviews and stories?

    Well so some of you have heard I plan on doing my own writing bit every Friday. Its a review on anything that could let the community know a little bit about everything or anything. Ive already done one. when I finish them they will be blogged. This is set for me and if you want me to do a review on anything you would like to see up don't hesitate to ask. now on another note I wanted this to be pure entertainment for the community to read. I love writing stories and use to do it all the time in school. This is like make believe stories and sometimes stories about real life experiences. Something to just lay back and read to. I wouldn't mind some opinions on this. do you think its a good idea? and if you like it what kind of stories do you want to see?

    Talent Spotlight - vVv Fatal EvO

    December is here, which means we have only a short wait until the "Year of Talent" is upon us. I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with vVv Fatal EvO to conduct the first of many Talent Spotlights, meant to highlight the most talented gamers within the vVv Gaming community. There's no better way to say goodbye to 2013 and kick off 2014 than to introduce the "hugging machine" himself! Let's get personal; what's your real name? Justin James Osborn How old are you, Justin? I am 21 years old, nice sir. Where are you located? I am located in a small town called Bradford, Ohio. If you could live anywhere you wanted to where would you choose? I would probably have to say upper New York, in the mountains. Do you work or go to school, or both? (Occupation or Major in school.) I graduated after two years in a Bible college with a certificate in general Bible studies, and I work at a Speedway affiliated gas station. I will be looking for a new job soon. What brought you to vVv? My friend Nick, vVv Fearless, and I were trying to get into competitive and find a team. Fearless looked for communities and we looked on the website. A couple days later, I put in my application. Which COD game was your favorite? Which were you the best at? Call of Duty: Black Ops II was my favorite and the COD that I was the best at. You competed at MLG Columbus with Hype Extinction.What was your favorite moment from the event? When we beat HITM and I dropped a 35 bomb on Octane Domination. What did you learn from the event that you’ll implement into your teams in the future? Learning to lose. Going from having really good potential to picking up two new people with only a week of chemistry messed with my mind. Crispee and I had really high hopes for the team that we went in with, but our confidence may have outweighed what we were actually capable of with such a fresh team. Now we know what it feels like to lose and we don’t want to be in that position again. How much time do you put into COD on a weekly basis? Do you think that’s enough to be on the professional level? Roughly 6-8 hours per day, maybe less if I am working a lot. Yes, I think a lot of teams practice between 6 and 10 hours per day, give or take a couple days for life getting in the way. What sort of value do you feel you've brought thus far to vVv? I feel like I’ve helped a lot of people. That was my number one goal coming into vVv was to help people become better gamers and better people. What do you envision for your future here in vVv? I am content where I’m at, but I like the new focus on talent in the COD division. It makes people strive to get better rather than sitting where they are at. It would be cool to get on the vVv pro team, but right now I am happy where I am at. What role do you play on your team? I am a slayer. How important is K/D or W/L overall? With COD: Ghost Win/Loss is important. Kill/Death is more crucial in this game than it was in Black Ops II because dying in this game takes time away from the playing field because in competitive play there is always a respawn delay. What is your favorite loadout for COD Ghost? Primary – Remington R5 Attachments – Red Dot, Muzzle Break Secondary – None Lethal – Grenade (in Dom and Search) Tactical – Concussion (in Blitz) Perks – Ready Up, Lightweight, Marathon, Quickdraw, Focus (Domination) Ready Up, Lightweight, Dead Silence, Quickdraw, Focus (Search and Blitz) What do you think is the best map/gametype combination in the game? Octane Domination Of all the games you've ever played (Not COD specific), which were you the most skilled at? Gears of War 1 What is the most unique thing about you, what makes you different? I’m a funny, charismatic guy. I tend to go with the flow and I enjoy making people laugh. What is your biggest flaw? My temper, when I get angry it messes me up in game. Who is your favorite video game character of all time? I have to go with Cole Train from Gears of War. I love that guy. Sweet or salty snacks? I’m gonna have to go with sweet, but I do love salt and vinegar chips. Maybe a solid tie. You can’t have sweets every day. Of the current batch of applicants, who have you seen showcasing real in-game talent? KBreezzyyy, not because he’s on my team, but that is WHY he’s on our team. Vall has also been showing real talent in game, she was wrecking in an 8’s lobby a couple nights ago. How long until you make the switch to Xbox One: Ghost? I would have to say January or February. Follow us on twitter, like our group on facebook and join in the fun on our mumble channel!

    Talent Spotlight - vVv Fatal EvO

    What a great interview. On a more serious note it was a lot of fun to sit and chat with Justin and have what seemed like more of just a fun conversation, rather than a question-by-question interview. I look forward to sitting down with more of the talented individuals around the community.

    my gamer tag was given to me as a nick name around the end of halo 2. Growing upI grew up in a rather getto area just south of Pitt. PA and I would never hang out with white people only black. After so long they started to say i wasn't white but that i was white chocolate lol. I don't know why but it has stuck and i use it for just about any gaming related thing i do.

    tbonechris- nickname was t-bone for football so i added that with my name to make my first GT Brave Knight 94- Thought it sounded cool TXI Sp4sM- Joined TXI which is like KSI back in the day but it died shortly after i joined. These were my halo days Chrislovetits (like 5 variations of it)- Self explanatory, kept having "tits" in it because i know that i can change my GT for free as long as it is innapropiate 2ProForCod- Thought it was pretty funny TG ThunderPony- Joined TG and i wanted to change my GT and someone came up with the idea "TG ThunderPony" these were the time when i was introduced to My Little Pony and became a brony. Octavia l- Was looking for a brony clan and found one with GTs all ending in "l" and i liked the background pony named "Octavia" so i used that. vVv Tahvvy (When i change it)- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ConyeXm8MC4 since Tavi is short for Octavia but i wanted it to be pronounced "Tah Vee" so yeah.

    My GT has a pretty simple story, got hurt in the army, after i had surgery on my leg and ankle, spend a few days in the hospital and then went back to my unit, when my sgt saw me crutching up to report back in he said "hey look guys, its the metalfoot back for revenge" since that day everyone has called me metal foot, so once i got back on XBL i changed my GT and its been that way ever since.

    I dig this post. So, Finloctopus. I made a name for myself in the sniping community as Titanz, but it felt like it didnt represent me. While searching for names, Xploh decided to merge my last name (Finley) and the word octopus. It was funny, unique, and available and now I'm the Octopus.

    This is a really good topic man, good job on coming up with the idea! I've gone through about 12 different gamertags, but I had coach as about my 3rd one, KO CallMeCoach, and everyone called me Coach lol it just stuck, and no matter what name I had, I always had people calling me coach. Well, I started coaching GB/iCN teams, so I went back to the gamertag, and I'll probably never change!

    My gamertag I was formerly and most known by was FlashKetchum. Its pretty easy, growing up in basketball my nickname was "Flash" because I'm pretty quick so I always had that as my gamertag, then one day my friends and I were sitting in a lobby trying to figure out creative names that wern't taken for Flash which is like impossible and we came up with Flash Ketchum, kind of a play on words and I thought fitting since Pokemon was my life when younger lol. Newest gamertag is 'FWEY' its easy, I didn't like how long flashketchum was, "vVv FlashKetchum" doesn't even fit on xbox so I wanted a new one. I don't know why but my favorite word is Fuego, but again it would be a pretty un-original name, so I made my gamertag 'Fwey" because thats the sound that the "FUE" would make and the original version of it is available everywhere =)
