      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.

      New Supersonic Series Start Time   10/17/2016

      We would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent survey regarding the start time of our tournaments.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants we have decided to make changes to the start time of our events to try to better accommodate everyone.  Beginning on Monday, October 24th, all of our tournaments will start an hour earlier - at 8PM Eastern.  This means that registration will close at 7:30 EST, and that check-in starts at 7:30 EST and closes at 7:45 EST.

    Value: Having members that are all adding value is a critical part of having a rich and vibrant community. There are many ways to add value: creating content for our partnered YouTube channel, having a strong social media presence with appropriate vVv Branding on your profile, being social on our forums and helpful to aspiring players and applicants to even just donating. To see the full list of ways to add value click here. If you are unsure of how you can add value, reach out to the community for help. Excellence: There are two ways to demonstrate excellence in vVv Gaming. The first way representing our brand and community professionally at major lan events. The second way is by being a passionate community member that excels at adding value to vVv Gaming. Diversity: vVv Gaming is a diverse community. This is our strength! vVv Gaming has people that come from various backgrounds and we openly embrace differences in race, national origin, age, disability, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs and gender.

We also welcome people who are passionate about a variety of games, the key feature of vVv is our diverse community!

    Have you wondered as of late why people do some of the things they do? Take me for instance, I have a well-paid job for my age and work experience. There is a full career ahead of me. I also have a very specific set of tools within my belt that would allow me to join any community on the internet that I wish and yet I choose to stick with vVv Gaming. Why? The answer to this question is actually rather simple, it is one word that was spoken to me a few days ago by vVv JasonParadise. Roots. He told me, you’ve got to remember your roots. Whether I have realized this just a few days ago or have known it all along, the truth stands. The force that drives me to lead vVv Gaming is that I want to give back the opportunities to those around me that have been given to me. I want the place that has started it all for me be the place that starts it all for you. vVv Gaming has had many talented individuals pass through. If you take our owners, for instance, vVv LordJerith, vVv Doomhammer, and vVv RobZGod, they have started their gaming careers at vVv Gaming. They are now at Wargaming.net, and previously Riot Games. Heck vVv Lord Jerith doesn’t just work there now, he is an executive! To me that is incredible, to me that is inspiring and to be fully honest, I’m a little envious that they were able to do so much with vVv Gaming that it lead their life on a path to what I am considering a paradise. Even more amazing I find is that they still find time in the day to offer me advice and guidance when I need it. We have had individuals start their careers at vVv Gaming and end up at Riot, Ubisoft, Curse, Naughty Dog, and even on the main stage of RLCS! Looking at Liefx and Lawler, I cannot be more proud of these two amazing individuals, who started their casting career with Season 2 of Supersonic Series and are now casting on the biggest stage Rocket League has to offer. It really makes me happy to hear stories like this. I can go on for few pages as to why vVv Gaming is awesome, I can talk about how the leadership opportunities given to me here have helped me reach the potential of what I am capable of. I can tell you about an angry kid who lashed out at his clanmates over stupidest of things because he did not know how to handle pointless drama in an online gaming guild. This angry kid is by no means perfect today, he is a grown man who, like all of us, has a lot of learning and growing up to do. However, thanks to the guidance he has acquired within vVv gaming, he has learned many great qualities that come with being a leader. He also has a message for you all and I would be honored if you would pay close attention to what he has to say: Each person is good at something, in fact, everyone is good at more than just one thing. It sometimes takes the right environment to bring those skills to light. It can take a lot of encouragement, friendship, and hard work to show the world your true potential. I have found mine thanks to the opportunities and support given to me here at vVv Gaming. As such I would like to help you find yours. There are mentors here who will help you learn, who will help you get on the right path. There are also numerous individuals here who just want to be your friends, because after all, what are gaming communities if not a group of friends who share common interests and are there for each other through the good and through the bad. Why should you join vVv Gaming? To better yourself and people around you. To make friends for life and to create an environment that will live on to help future generations find their talents and survive in the cruel world that we know as the Internet. I am vVv Bagzli, a proud member of vVv Gaming, and I urge you to not sell yourself short. To not allow others tell you that you can’t do it. If you have a passion for gaming and if you want to fill your belts with tools that we can offer, then hop in our Discord and chat with us. Tell us that you want to get involved, tell us what you are passionate about and then if you are ready to put in the hard work, we will help you thrive.

    I, vVv Broba, endorse Petedz! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I have played with the applicant several times across several different games. Rocket League, Golf with Friends, stuff like that. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? My first impression of Pete was that he was a great guy who loved to play Rocket League. I remember several times in private matches us being on the same team and having a blast and that hasn't changed since I've met him. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? My favorite moment with Pete was the time we were in a private 3s match and I almost scored a goal after slamming into the wall and boosting out from my car turning. I hit the ball and it just barely hit the post. Such a close goal!! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? This applicant makes a good fit because he is a great member of the community. I've seen him around all the time, even just sitting in the discord playing games. I have seen that he is really passionate about gaming and he seems really eager to help out more. Perhaps he could be on staff?! How could they improve to be a better potential community member? The best thing I could say to Pete would be to keep being active and available and to think about something that he could really bring either to the community at large or even to our events and possibly other games. If there's something that you would really like to do don't be afraid to let us know! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? I'm not necessarily sure about skills or talents but you should know that he loves Rocket League and is always someone you want to be around playing games and things. I can't wait to see what he will bring to the table.

If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players. Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each.

    I, vVv deathsgrasp, endorse Alexa.! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I play with alexa almost every day at least in both pubg and RL when I'm feeling brave enough What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? Sounded very young and was questioning his maturity a bit. however, he has managed to impress me a lot as he is continually willing to learn and prove himself to be a great potential vVv member What was your favourite moment with them (in-game or out)? Honestly too many to count there is at least one time whenever we play we look back on the next day and laugh it out! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He is always willing to learn more about admin related topics and is always a great help to the community whenever someone has a question! How could they improve to be a better potential community member? Have more confidence in yourself! I over slept on last Thursday's tourney and alex held down the fort till I got back! remember everything I teach you I was told the same exact thing so if I could figure it out I have complete faith that you can as well... just stay cool and solve 1 problem at a time! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? Thinks he has no friends but doesn't realize he has a family right here waiting to accept him ;D

    Hi Amy, Welcome to the community. That was quite a colorful introduction lol. We are typically more active on discord than on these forum. With that said if you want to hangout and play some pubg join our discord. I typically play after 7pm eastern on weekdays. Feel free to hit me up for a game if you are looking for a duo or more squad members. Now I gtg to work lol. Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself! See you around.

    I, vVv Bagzli, endorse Grimwolf! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I don't have an exact number but been playing with Joshua for about 3-4 months at least. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? I don't honestly remember my first impression, however, I can say that he is a person who tries hard and is willing to take feedback. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? My favorite moment was when he defeated me in a 1v1 game. He didn't go to brag about it nor has ever brought it up. Typically people are too quick to brag about that, but not Grimm. I like him better as a person for that. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He is very active on our discord and I think this activity alone helps us bring more people to vVv Gaming. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I would say that I do often see him sitting alone in a channel. I would suggest that when you can't find anyone online to play with, a good strategy is to meet somebody in a pug 2v2 and befriend them, bring them on discord and next time when there is nobody around again, they might be! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? Unfortunately, I don't have anything

    Name: Nicholas Wayne Slagle Age: 22 Location: Buda, Texas Steam profile link: http://steamcommunity.com/id/MadMadMugen/ Battle.Net Tag: Mugen#11350 What is the game you are currently most active in and why? (only name one game) Rocket League. The community makes the game playable, I'm super competitive and I excel at playing the game more than any other game. What are some other games that you currently play? H1Z1, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Battlefield (all), Overwatch, Golf with Friends, Arma 3, Shellshock Live, and most importantly Skyrim (this game means a lot to me, I've been a part of the Nexus modding community for a long time. I haven't created mods since I don't have the skill set for that but I am constantly an active part of the community's feedback and support. Skyrim in my opinion is one of the greatest games ever made even though it's birth year is only 2011. I am very enthusiastic about this game and could talk for hours on end about it.) How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? I originally played rocket league on ps4 and wanted to upgrade my gaming platform so I got a pc and the first game on pc I got was Rocket League. Eventually I met new people and friends and was invited to play in the Monday night draft several months back. I cannot remember who referenced me to vVv. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How did you get to know them? Petey, Bliss, Broba, Syracuse, Pretzl, Mohulis, Bagzli all I met from Rocket League or Overwatch while spending time in the vVv discord chat channels. All of which I've spent lots of time with and greatly enjoyed their company. If I had to say what makes me want to join vVv I would say that it is because of these people I have listed more than anything else. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? I've never been a dedicated member of a community this large and I'm curious to see what it has to offer. I have no real ambitions for joining since I am unfamiliar with what gaming communities typically do, but Bagzli made it sound pretty badas* What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? I enjoy hunting and the outdoors (I work at Cabela's which is a huge outdoor sport store as an inventory specialist), I love love love anime. Like I've seen probably 400+ different shows..... #weebstatus How do you plan to add value to vVv Gaming? I'm not sure what I can offer to this community apart from my loyalty and some time to be a part of it, I'm unsure if my skills can be useful but if they can be used for the development of any aspect within the community then I'd be happy to bring forth my talents to the best of my abilities. Apart from just gaming I consider myself to be well educated and very analytic, I often find myself as a mediator between conflicts of interest since I am able to remain objective and unbiased on most subject matters. When I was 21 years old I worked as an assistant manager at Radio Shack for 3 years, so I believe I have a strong sense of duty and an ability to lead others as well as take direction and constructive criticism well (I, in fact, enjoy hearing the constructive opinions of others). I'm sure there is more I could offer and should I be needed, I feel comfortable enough to state here in this application that you may count on me to do my best for this community - whatever it may be. I also might be able to continue, at the very least, as a caster for some of the rocket league related live streams. I am currently a complete novice at the casting process but I feel comfortable with learning the trade from those within this community and I feel confident in my exponential growth as a caster. That being said, I am still unsure as to how I feel about continuing this path for vVv since I have spent so little time with it, however if I decide that I will not continue this path I will give the appropriate higher-up significant notice before I completely resign from that role. Do you attend LAN Events? As I am going to school and paying as well as working money for me is a little constricting so I am only able to be a part of LAN events around my area, in fact this month Austin is hosting the South By South West festival where Rocket League and many other games will be showcased in a LAN setting that I will be visiting! Basically if I have the ability and familiarity with the LAN event I am usually willing to go. Will you be meeting with us in person at PAX SOUTH in January of 2017? I believe this question should answer itself considering the time frame for which I am currently going to post this application...

    I, vVv Petey, endorse Petedz! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? Between playing Golf With Your Friends, Rocket League, Arma 3, and the new one The Hunter!!! A lot. Just hanging out in discord too, Pete is a wonderful gentleman who is polite and very helpful to anyone. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? Well structured guy, always willing to lend a hand when he can!!! It did not change, he is always willing to lend a hand o the community when he has a chance. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? Anytime we are playing Rocket League doubles. we will go for crazy passing plays, most of the time fail but we laugh it off and keep positive. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? Like stated Pete jumps right into Hangout channel willing to play and help anyone. He brings much value to vVv Gaming by doing just that. Getting people to play together and joining in on the fun himself!!! How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I feel Pete WANTS to help the community, BUT sometimes he says he will do something thats a little more than he can handle. as a staff for vVv Gaming, We really appreciate the help and we hold people to what they say and i dont want that to hurt Pete in the end. So keep offering services but just be sure to be ready for the responsibility!! Friendly Heads Up Buddy Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? He is a Great Caster!!!!

    I, vVv deathsgrasp, endorse Grimwolf! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I have been playing with him off and on around a few weeks now and I must say even though I usually play RL on east servers I don't hear not 1 word of complaint coming from him which is cool. shows character! Lord knows I'd be huffing and puffing. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? He's a chill down to earth guy very cool to play with and even just talk to. He is very friendly and always willing to play. He has been like this since iv had the pleasure of meeting him What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? Every time I play with grim its always a fun experience! I'd have to say my favorite time with him is probably every time he carries me when I'm drunk makes me feel like im not too much of a burden and allows me to continue having fun as well! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? The fact he's always willing to play with anyone who he meets IMO makes him a perfect candidate because after all what good is a gaming community if people aren't willing to make friends. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I think maybe offering his help to some of the staff members for example on Monday night drafts is a quick and easy way to better his potential! it's really easy and doesn't take more than like an hour and REALLY helps the staff set up teams and what not. NOW GO AND BUG MOH! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? IM NOT A STALKER JESUS but if I do find out in my research some new and interesting set of skills he's hiding... I will come.... and edit this post... YOUR JOURNY IS JUST BEGINNING YOUNG GRASSHOPPER! look forward to seeing you around!

    General Rules: Client-side mods are not allowed to be used on the server unless they are whitelisted. To see the full list of approved Mods expand the spoiler content below. If you wish us to whitelist a mod, please speak an Admin. By playing on our servers, you agree to be mindful and respectful of others and their property. Any form of harassment or griefing will get you banned very quickly. Pranks and PvP are allowed only when both parties give consent and are only allowed in areas where other player’s property cannot be damaged. Do not take anything player made/grown/raised that does not have a sign that specifically allows taking or use of said item. If there is an item that you wish to take, ask for permission first from the player that owns it. If you are not sure if something is allowed to be taken, ask a Mod or an Admin. Measures used to prevent idle timeouts (AFK kicking) are forbidden. Zombie Pig Farms are NOT ALLOWED. This is the server currency and would cause massive inflation to the economy. Read the signs and oblige to their rules. Players will put signs to pass along various information. You are expected to read the signs you walk by. Ignorance will not be excused. Process for suspected griefing If a user suspects griefing, take any possible screenshots that would aid in the process and post a brief description of the event on the forums. The user who was grieved must include all users who are allowed to access their land. An admin will check whatever possible in the area of suspected griefing, and conclude immediately whether it has happened, and by who. Land Rules: To declare your land area, build a perimeter around it so that other players know it was taken from bedrock to ceiling. If there is no perimeter set, other players will be able to build there. If 2 players conflict due to an accident, the person who built there first will decide how to resolve the conflict. Admins reserve the right to override this rule. Do not trespass on other player’s land. The player land is declared by building at least 2 walls that connect and form a closed section. Do not destroy, modify, or build around other player’s land or property. If you are not sure if an area is open for taking ask a Mod or Admin for help. If any player-made structures is left unattended or edited for more than three weeks, it is considered Probation Land which means anyone that wants the land can post on the forums under a specified subject with the coordinates and owner of the land (can be checked by an admin with /co inspect) Ex: PROBATION LAND X 92 Y 60 Z 334 OWNER: GUYTHATWASHEREAGESAGO Admins will reach out to the owner of the land and give them 7 days to respond. Trade Rules: Players can buy, sell, and rent land to other players. You can build a trade booth only if you have the status of Trader. Traders must have gold on one side of the trade in their booths at all times. Merchants may trade anything for anything in their booths. Ban Appeal Guidelines: To appeal your ban status, you need to create a new post in the Application section of Minecraft and explain what happened, why it happened and what you will do to make sure it never happens again.

    well I know I'm not an official member yet but I just wanted to put my 2 cents in. why do I love vVv gaming? well, I haven't had the pleasure of being introduced to the all the old vets here but from the members, i have had the pleasure of talking too I must say. vVv member is some of the most welcoming and just straight forward people iv met in any community. sift through all the jokes and tomfoolery and you've got people who enjoy playing games and who are always open for conversations. (no matter how drunk I may be at the momment! ;D) then on top of that if you have any questions, no matter how trivial, they are always around to help out. anything from finding a team to improving your gameplay they not only will help coach you but will do so happy and willingly. I look forward to bolstering the vVv ranks and just having fun with all of you! I may not be a member yet but this is why I love vVv gaming. Cheers!

    Great read Bagz. Your particularly long posts are always awesome to read. But I'm going to take your post one step further. I CHALLENGE current vVv members to reply with why they love being a member. I have always been an explorer. No MMO ever has a class that I can play for more than a day or two. vVv Gaming has been a home now three years. I've been a member for about two and a half years. Every time I get an idea, I try to make it happen. Whether it be failing to start new divisions (reference Nosgoth and Heroes of the Storm), threw my hand at managing the Social Media accounts (I think Medusa and Robz can understand) and attempting to lead the Supersonic Series. Every time I've convinced myself to jump at a new project, vVv Members have always been there for me. Mentoring me to learn best practices, giving me people to look up to (LordJerith and Paradise), and goals to aspire to live out. Consider this my experiment to find my talents, I know I'm good at something, but I haven't quite found it yet. Consider this post my gratitude to awesome people I've met along the way. LordJerith for your unrivaled honesty, you truly are someone I look up to as a role model. Rob, you didn't quit on me when I struggled with handling the social media accounts, for that I thank you. Medusa for kicking my ass in gear to put my very best in everything I did. And Bagzli, for pushing me to be the very best version of me, no amount of thank's can ever give back the amount of time, patience, and energy you've given me. For that, I call you all friends, family, and people to aspire to become. For the next few months, I know I will be inactive. However, when I return from my study abroad, expect a new Saturn. That is why I love vVv Gaming. That is why I am proud to be a vVv Member. And that is why vVv Gaming is the best fucking gaming community in the world.

    If you could be anything/anyone in the world! What would it be? Job, Trade with person, or trade to be something. i would say a literal gaming potato but i already am that... soooo... i would say an undercover lottery winner... that way i wouldn't have to work my ass off like i do now and i could just invest into stocks and maybe a company or 2 then id just move into probably sub 2k square foot house and pretend i work for a bank... id do all the research and maybe even take a class or 2 just so i can use it in social situations while i secretly don't do shit all day... might even get a minimum wage part time job or something just to start on another cover if i get bored (plumber, electrician , janitor etc)... probably change my name just to be safe... im a man of simple tastes and manage money well so i think that would be enough to entertain me...

    vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming. Stack-Up's Mission "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside. They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies. It isn't just about having fun either! Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief! Donation Page You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel. Please come to watch and show your support! Stack-Up Information Website Twitter

    Name: Ryan Age: 33 (34 in October) Location: Knoxville, TN Steam profile link: Mohulis Battle.Net Tag: Mohulis#1269 What is the game you are currently most active in and why? (only name one game) Rocket League is where my passion lies. It's the first game that doesn't fall under the MMO category to draw me in for so much play time / twitch stream watching. It's such a phenomenal game with so many aspects to it; and it's a game anyone can watch and understand as an e-sport since the basic premise is so simple. What are some other games that you currently play? I'm just getting in to Elite Dangerous, and I play Hearthstone/Kerbal Space Program/Overwatch now and then. How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? I stumbled across vVv Gaming way back during Season 1 of the Supersonic Series. I think it was Beardhammer who told me about / asked me to come play in a tourney with him. I kinda just stuck around after that - I met some pretty awesome people playing in the tournaments. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How did you get to know them? Currently I know Bagzli, Saturn, Pretzl, NaturaL, Yui, Dulce Arma, and quite possibly a few others than I'm missing (sorry if I am!). I know some better than others, but that'll change as time goes on! I originally met Bagzli wayyy back in Season 1 I believe on a Supersonic Shuffle night. Bagzli, myself, and Bliss were put on a team and we all had some fun getting to know each other a little while we got our asses kicked. I've gotten to know Bagzli and the others more and more later on through staff meetings, and playing some games with them. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? The Rocket League portion of the vVv Gaming Community allowed me to meet other Rocketeers to play with, learn from, and become friends with. There are a couple people I have met through vVv that have become good friends. It just makes sense to join and continue to build/form these sorts of friendships in a community interested in the same things I am. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? I dabble in a bunch of various things, but my biggest interests and hobbies outside of gaming include Psychology, driving, and writing. How do you plan to add value to vVv Gaming? As RL Event Manager I want to do my part to help regrow the vVv Community as a whole by growing our RL Division. Hosting events people want to attend - where they can learn, or teach, and meet like-minded gamers to play with and make lasting friendships with. I want the community I became a part of early on to not only survive - but thrive. Do you attend LAN Events? I haven't attended a large LAN event since Million Man LAN in Louisville, KY back in like 04/05. I've had small LANs with friends and such, of course. Will you be meeting with us in person at PAX SOUTH in January of 2017? Unfortunately not.

    We are happy to announce an upcoming Community Game Night for Rocket League on Saturday, October 22nd! This event will be a Captains Draft style, double elimination 3v3 Rumble. So grab your Captain Daddy hats, plungers, and boxing gloves and let's head to the Octagon for a little weekend fun! This tournament will follow the same rules and regulations as our regular CGN: Draft events do, (found here) except that the default map will be Octagon instead of DFH Stadium. When: 8PM EST (5PM PST) Check-in starts at 7:30PM EST and closes at 7:45PM EST Where: vVv Discord Server (https://discord.gg/p44AjNf) Discord Guide: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/discord Format: 3vs3 - Double Elimination Tournament. Best of three in the winner's bracket and best of one in the loser's bracket until the last two matches which return to best of three. Captains are chosen at random and each captain picks their team-mates. Rumble. Registration: Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/rocket-league/register on the day of the tournament to register. While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain. If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers. If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players. Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team. Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

    I, vVv PretzL Endorse Mohulis. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I have played with applicant for several months in and out of Rocket League. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? initial first impression of Mohulis was he has great leadership skills and knows how to run a rocket league tournament. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? Mohulis makes a perfect member for our community due to his strong leadership skills and hard working mindset from running the supersonic series I believe he adds a lot of value to the organisation and the community as a whole. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? The only advice would be to post more on the forums. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? He's awesome at rocket league.

    I, vVv Bagzli, endorse Broba! How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I have play a decent amount of games with Broba, but I can't say we play on regular basis. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? My initial impression of Broba was that he is very energetic and that he has the potential to make a great caster. Over time my opinion has not changed. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? Broba seems keen to help out, he was all too happy to accept the role of Stream Coordinator and from what I can tell he has been doing a fantastic job. He Volunteers his time outside of vVv Gaming, but understands and knows how to manage his priorities. From what I have seen he is a person to count on and I hope that he will show us what he is capable of now that he has all the tools to succeed. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I'd heavily encourage higher forum activity, if there is nothing to reply to, its ok to start a new discussion yourself! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? He works hard, plays harder and is a blast to hang out with. His casting is better with each stream.

    I, vVv PretzL Endorse Syracuse. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I have played with this applicant on several occasions during in-house rocket league parties and we've got the chance to get to know each other over the course of his application process and prior to him applying. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? My first impressions were very interesting, Instantly from hearing him speak on discord I knew from that point I would get along with Syracuse. He's very professional and he respects others around him. I heard that he was a caster for our vVv SuperSonic event and once I heard him on a livestream I instantly became attached to his perfection to analysing the gameplay. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? Favorite moment.. - Definitely our Cards Against Humanity moments What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? Syracuse is the prime example of a great member for this community he's very passionate about rocket league and vVv, I think if you were going to give an example of a ideal vVv member he would fit the picture perfectly. I've noticed that he wants to help the community grow and become a much greater place for our visitors to the supersonic event and community as a whole. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? Activity on the forums needs to be more consistent. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? When he was younger, he went from "Squeaker Squad To Barry White Deep Voice" in the matter of one night. I wouldn't call this a talent, but more of fact about Syracuse.. lol I wish you the very best of luck on your application! GOOD LUCK SYRACUSE #BestCasterInvVv-Dont-Tell-Broba.
