    • Rocket League Community Game Night Tournaments!   10/03/2015

      As of 25th of August 2015, we have been hosting Rocket League events!  This event is open for everyone to participate.  Below you will find all the details that you need to know to get involved, so please take a minute and read through carefully!  Hope to see you there at our next event!     When: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm PST/9pm EST (we start on the dot, so don’t be late) Where: Our TeamSpeak server (click here for setup guide/details) Format: 3vs3 - Double elimination, best out of 3 games. How to participate: Connect to our TeamSpeak server with your team (or alone) before starting time and you will be entered in the tournament by one of the admins.  Currently, you do not need to pre-register to participate in the tournament, simply be in the teamspeak in the Rocket League channel by starting time stated above. Participating alone: If you have come alone to the tournament you will be drafted onto one of the teams by an administrator of the event. Participating with a team: If you have come with one or two friends to the tournament, you will be allowed to play together.  When the drafting starts, you need to move to one of the team channels with your friend(s) so that the administrators knows that you are not alone.  Should it be necessary, a third person will be added to your team by an administrator.     Drafting Process:  Upon all teams being selected, we will create a challonge bracket that will be used to keep track of the games.  Each team will choose a team captain and report to the administrators the name of the captain.  On challonge, we will use team captain's name as the name of the team.  Challonge will randomize the matchups for us.  To view the latest challonge bracket, visit http://vvv-gaming.com/RLBracket Playing your games and reporting results:  When the challonge bracket is setup, you will be able to see against which team you are up against.  Team captains are expected to communicate to one another at this point and organize a game.  The game should be created with a username and password so that our shout casters are able to join your game should they choose to do so.  Upon completing your games, report the result of the game to the event administrators and they will update the challonge. Streaming (Shoutcasting): One game out of each round will be streamed throughout the night. To accommodate the streamers we ask that you allow the streamer to join your game prior to beginning your play and also to let the replays play to the end so that they have a chance to analyse your plays over the streams and show those amazing goals you score!  Should your game be selected to be streamed, one of the shoutcasters will get in touch with your prior to your game starting. Keeping up with updates of the event: Don’t forget to check back on these forums for any updates to the tournament and you can also join our Steam group to to get notifications about our upcoming events and easier access to our announcements: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/vVvGamingRL

       Wanted: Rocket League Twitch Caster   vVv Gaming is looking for a streamer who wants to turn our biweekly Rocket League tournaments into a premier event.  Your role as a caster would be to stream the events on our vVv Twitch channel and commentate on plays in the game.  There are 4-6 Rounds in each tournament and you would be casting one game out of each round.  This is a volunteer position.   What we are looking for: - Available Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 9pm EST to about midnight - 1080p 60 FPS video - Ability to work in a team environment - Ability to interact with an audience   What we consider a bonus: - Familiarity with video editing and editing software - Previous streaming experience (specifically shoutcasting) - Familiar with Rocket League eSports scene - Know how to setup and use twitchalerts.com or similar system   These tournaments provide a chance for amatuer Rocket League players to connect with and play against others to learn key elements to the game and the importance of teamwork. The point of the stream would be to highlight great plays from teams and to recognize new and upcoming talent.

    Ceberus remote access exploit
    Severity: CRITICAL
    Ceberus, the popular anti-theft app on Android is vulnerable to remote disclosure of account credentials allowing attackers complete control of your phone. Uninstall Cerberus immediately.
  4. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Favorite BEER?   

    Should I care? If someone's favorite beer is commonly found in solo cups on college campuses or the 'official' beer of NASCAR than they dont know beer. Period. I dont know any microbreweries who strive to mirror a watery lager.
    Please dont confuse my response with giving a fuck what you think *cough* I mean drink. 
    Nice douchey comment yourself. Cheers.

    Wow there's a lot of piss drinkers in this thread. 
    I hate to break it to you but Coors/Bud/Miller are not real beers. Order one of those at Oktoberfest and you'll get laughed out of Germany.
  6. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic A New Compact PC things keep getting smaller and smaller...   

    The Raspberry Pi can stream HD video. Quite a cool little device. I have one at home running debian that I use to host a git repo. Not technically a PC in the sense that it cant run Windows applications but still very cool (and only $35).

    To anyone in computer engineering or computer science, feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the majors, courses, specific technical issues, or what software development in industry is like.

  8. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Insider Ubisoft spreads the technical specifications of the new Xbox (rumor)   

    I wouldnt put too much faith in a random chinese forum. It would surprise me for the next gen to have an 8 core though. Perhaps 4 core hyperthreaded, but parallelized work is hard enough to find for a single game. The major benefit would be in AI processing capabilities but it still would seem more of a marketing move to me.
    I would be cautious to hold my breath for a new xbox at all though. Xbox is less than 10% of Microsoft's total revenue (~9%), and reported a $229M operating loss in 2011 and 2012 is not likely to be much better. With the apparent flop of Windows 8, Microsoft could be in for some significant restructuring as they try to stay relevant.

    Java remote code execution vulnerability
    Sev: SEVERE
    Platform: Windows, OSX, Linux

    A vulnerability in the java jdk is being actively exploited in the w wild. The level of exploitation occurring appears to be very severe. The DoHS has issued an advisory recommending the uninstallation of Java until Oracle can release a patch. Apple has already released an update that disables java on OSX 10.6+



    This isn't one to ignore.
  10. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Tablets? Which would you buy?   

    The 16 GB Nexus 7 has been dropped to $200 and the 8 GB version discontinued. Also there is now a 32GB WiFi model and HP+ that can be attached to an AT&T plan. Additionally the Nexus 10 was released yesterday starting at $399 for the 16GB model.

    LOL yea because college students are Romney's key demographic.
  12. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Is 16gb of RAM overkill?   

    Its really going to be overkill for a vast majority of users but it really depends on what you use your PC for. For a gaming PC, 8GB is more than enough and you'll be fine with even 4GB, all assuming a 64bit OS. Video RAM capacity is more important for gaming.
  13. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Welfare and Drug-Testing   

    I get the feeling that you are trying to make a point with the statistics you provided so rather than speculate, perhaps you should just state what conclusion you think we should draw from that.

    Additionally here are some statistics, whose conclusions I will, for parity, leave for you to make.

  14. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Myers-Briggs Personality Test. What type are you?   

    You have an interesting definition of personality if its something you expect to change from day to day.

    Consider two things:

    1. This particular personality test assumes personality is a relatively unchanging trait. That is the basis of the test.
    2. What good is a personality test if personality is widely variable in short timespans?
  15. vVv Forsaken added a post in a topic Updating my 09' Build PC- Opinions   

    This is incorrect. Yes each DIMM is 64 bits wide but the memory bandwidth to the memory controller is described in channels. Each channel can communicate data to the controller at the same time. The number of channels on a mobo differ but Nowater's mobo is dual channel with a very important note of:

    This means that it is certainly in Nowater's best interest to get only 2 DIMMs whether thats 2x8GB or 2x4GB thats up to him (installation is important here, which slots you use matters). Even if the above limitation on the memory clock was not the case, there would be no bandwidth increase from using 3 or 4 DIMMs and for that extra nothing you are going to generate more heat, likely reduce overclock capabilities, and are more likely to encounter a memory failure down the road.
