      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.

      vVv Gaming Presents: ADL Season 10!   08/12/2016

      TL;DR: Season 10 of the vVv Gaming LoL ADL begins Friday, August 19th @9pm EST/6pm PST! Discord Info              Just be on Discord at the check in time and have a level 30 with at least 16 champions to participate! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ vVv Gaming has had a long history in competitive e-sports; and, while the LCS may be a long way off for the organization, we can still participate in semi-competitive LoL activities as a community. The ADL has, and will continue to be, our main way to achieve this. However, let’s be honest, the ADL has had a rough time over the past few seasons. This comes from both participant enjoyment, as well as coordination and structuring of the event as a whole. While I do not plan on completely fixing the system from the start, I do believe that there are some short (and long) term changes that can make the experience better for everyone: ·         We are keeping participation points for this season, as well as the Elo ranking system used for previous seasons. ·         We will have people recruiting more in the game from the community, and attempt to bring more LoL community members to the discord that we feel would be good for the vVv community. ·         We will be implementing new rules for the drafting phase. Some of these rules will be introduced as the season progresses and are covered below. ·         Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is no information regarding a prize. If a viable prize method/opportunity comes about in the future, current season winners will be rewarded retroactively. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rules and Details (Read if new):          Nights will consist of two matches per night. You must be able to attend both games (Don’t be that guy, play it out).          Be on Discord NO LATER than 8:55pm EST/5:55pm PST for Check In. This will be slowly changed to 8:45pm EST as the season progresses. We want the drafting phase this season to be as smooth as possible.  We want to give people time to announce their roles before hand.           Check in will happen in the ADL Check In Discord Channel BEFORE players move to the regular ADL channel, and at 9:00pm EST people will move to channels matching their Dynamic Queue rank. Missing the check-in deadline means that you will not be able to participate that night and will not receive a participation point.          During the Check In, participants will announce their top 3 preferred roles for a staff member to place in a spreadsheet (Discord does not allow for your descriptions to be changed, that I am aware of).          Have a level 30 account, at least 16 champions, and be ready to have some fun!          Additional Questions? Contact vVv Eternal or vVv Yui        The ADL will last for 10 weeks this season, there will then be a three-week break before the next season starts (Currently scheduled for Nov. 11, 2016).        Cheating or Smurfing in the ADL is not permitted. Anyone caught doing either of these this will be suspended from the ADL, no exceptions. Cheating will result in a permanent suspension, smurfing will result in a 5-week suspension.  New Drafting Process: So, in previous seasons of the ADL, the highest ranked players were given the priority in being team captains for any given night. While this was not a bad system, it did leave some players feeling left out over the course of the season. That being said: ·         Highest ranked players will no longer be automatically chosen as the team captain. ·         Team captains will be chosen by the number of participation points that a player has (you earn 1 point for each night you attend, REGARDLESS of whether or not you are picked). ·         No player can be captain more than once every 4 weeks (depending on overall participation). ·         The first weekend will have captains from an arbitrary division and lower. So here is my logic (bear with me). With some outlying cases, most of the team captains would pick from highest available skill in a role down, until all of the top players (and a few peoples friends) were picked. I don’t expect this to change at all; however, this allows for both new and lower skill level players and community members, as well as frequent participants, to always have a shot at playing. They also get the benefit of knowing (eventually) in advance that they will be captains. Additional Information: I would like to try and address the speed of the drafting process. For now, the primary way of doing this will be the check-in time; however, if another feasible method is suggested, any changes will be updated in this section. After the Games: ·         Players will join the winning team's discord channel, and all players will be given feedback if they desire it. ·         Players may also provide criticism and suggestions for the ADL. (We are still seeking to improve the event if the community desires it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More Darn Rules ·         Teams will still be matched by alphabetical order of Discord channel for the time being. ·         The winner of the first match will play the winner of the second (both matches are played out simultaneously), and the same goes for the losing teams. ·         The higher team alphabetically will be chosen to be on the blue side for the first game, and the lower team will get blue side when the second game is played. Leaving/AFK: If someone leaves a game for any reason and does not reconnect, they will be given a 2-night suspension from the ADL. The player may appeal the suspension with an ADL Staff member if there was a legitimate reason for the disconnect. However, all appeals must happen at least 24 hours before the next ADL event. You also may only appeal a disconnect once per season. Pausing: Players may pause the game for UP TO 10 minutes if a player on their team is having connection issues. PLAYERS MUST INFORM AN ADL STAFF MEMBER IF A GAME IS PAUSED. If the reason cannot be resolved in 10 minutes, the team whose player disconnected will concede the match. If the enemy team agrees, they may also use their 10-minute pause to give the other team more time. Teams only get two pauses per game. Replacement Players: Player replacement will be handled the same as in previous seasons. A player may be replaced by another player of the same rank or lower, provided both teams agree to the replacement. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So that’s it folks.  Thank you for sticking through the whole announcement, we understand it is somewhat lengthy, however the information had to be provided.  You are now ready for the 10th season of the ADL! If you have any questions feel free to contact vVv Eternal     See you on Friday, August 19th at 8:55pm EST/6:00pm PST!     ADL Staff: vVv Eternal   To join the discussion click here!

      Changes to Community Game Nights   09/13/2016

      Thank you to everyone who participated in week’s survey.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants the previous week, staff availability, and looking at conflicts with other tournaments, we have decided to make changes to our Wednesday Night Tournaments.  Moving forward, as of Thursday, September 22nd, team tournaments will be hosted on Thursdays as opposed to Wednesdays. We hope with the new schedule, the overall participation will improve, as there will be fewer conflicts between tournaments being hosted.   If you have any further feedback, please leave us a comment in the following thread:  http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/topic/72439-supersonic-series-feedback-thread/

  13. DEVASTATION 2010! Amazing

    This past week I attended DEVASTATION 2010 that was held in Phoenix Arizona. It was the first time I had ever been to a gaming event and I wasn't sure what to expect really. As soon as I got there I was floored. The venue was huge, there were games everywhere, it felt like I was in heaven. I flew out to Arizona Thursday afternoon and met vVv mDaWg at the airport. As soon as we walked outside we noticed Arizona's heat. But of course we were in the shade at the time. When we walked over to our cab we stepped into the sun and it was like 20 degrees hotter. When we got to the hotel we met up with vVv Paradise and vVv Brock to get checked in to our hotel room. As soon as we set out stuff down the first thing we noticed were $5.25 bottles of aquafina sitting on the dresser. We decided it would be a great idea to hide them so they didn't get drank or accidentally opened or anything. After that, we got the xbox set up and started gaming. Later on Paradise and Brock went out the a Dream Theater concert and mDaWg and I headed over to the DEVASTATION VIP party. The VIP party was just a day to come out and get a look at the venue and play a bunch of games. We played some DJ Hero of course and looked around at all the game areas set up. I would have played some other games but it was bring your own controller and I didn't have controllers for them so I was kind of bummed, but that's ok. We also met vVv Pythagoras that day while he was jamming out to Guitar Hero. Later that night we met up with vVv Smokyprogg and went out on a bit of an adventure to find food within walking distance. I think it was around 10 pm we found a Subway, a Baja fresh, and a Burger King and they were all closed. Since we were all tired and hungry we settled for the restaurant inside the hotel that we were trying to avoid because we figured it would be expensive. The prices actually weren't that bad though. After eating we met back up with Paradise and Brock and headed to bed. The next day was a pretty lazy day. We didn't have anything going on competition wise and there weren't really any games that we cared about watching the tournaments for. We just hung out, mingled, played games, stuff like that. I guess Brock was talking to someone about a get together that was being put together. A guy named Brent, who goes by eXcelon on Scorehero, has a really awesome house and he invited us all over in addition to Edge of Insanity and a few others. We played a bunch of Rock Band and had burgers and hot dogs that Brent grilled. I spent almost the whole night playing drums and I kind of slowly noticed people start to disappear outside after a while. When it was time to go I discovered that they had all been drinking out there and I missed out cause I was gaming. I was kind of bummed but it's ok. I got to hear a really funny story from Paradise though. If you ever get the chance to see him drunk ask him to tell the GO story. He only tells it drunk though. That night vVv mikeHAZE showed up at the hotel in the middle of the night and vVv Havok showed up a few hours later. In the morning it was time for the Brawl tournaments. I was able to witness most of the epic doubles match with mikeHAZE and Havok against vVv Mew2King and DrkLink. I didn't get to watch all of it but I was definitely rooting for mikeHAZE and Havok and I was glad to hear that they won! At the same time the DJ Hero tournament was kicking off. I was happy to have gotten a Bye in the first round. The second round, my first match, was against some guy named Preston. I had seen him play earlier and I wasn't impressed so I wasn't too worried about it. I won that match which put me against vVv Paradise in the next round. He picked Elements of Life which is a song I'm not usually too strong on and he knew that. I ended up playing that song the best I'd ever played it. I forgot to take a look at the stats screen but I think I probably missed less than 10. So I beat him on that and whatever I picked and I advanced. I think my next match was the winners finals against mDaWg. I was pretty nervous about this one. We had a really close best of 5 game with both of us winning 2. The decision for the 5th song came from a judge who knew nothing about the game. I believe mDaWg bribed her to pick Rockit, which is his best song. Needless to say, he sent me to the losers bracket. After a quick match against Jumpaan I came back for the grand finals against mDaWg. This set wasn't quite as close. He beat me 3-1. After the tournament was all said and done. Paradise comes up to us and tells us that there are people doing a documentary on the culture of competitive gamers and they wanted to talk to a really good rhythm game player and asked him if he knew if Prod1gy X would be at the event. We all got a good laugh from that. He said he told them about how Smokyprogg was the best Guitar Hero player in the US and how he took 3rd at the WCG Grand Finals in China last year and how mDaWg and I are the 2 best DJ Hero players in the world. So they interviewed the 3 of us which was pretty cool. Sunday was Finals day and it was full of a lot of very interesting games. First up was the Brawl singles match featuring vVv Mew2King vs vVv Havok. We were a bit disappointed to see that on screen they didn't have the V's in front of their names. But it was a good match none the less. M2K took home gold and Havok took home silver. One of the games, Blazblue, I saw a little bit of for the first time the day before and I found it interesting. After watching the finals for it I was even more interested in it and ended up buying it when I got back home. The Street Fighter 4 tournament was the finale and it was really exciting. I felt like I was watching a basketball game or something. One of the players, Juicebox, had the crowd on his side the whole time. Whenever he landed a move we all cheered for him. I was sad to see him take 3rd but it was awesome watching him play and to see the crowd behind him like that. After that it was time to head back to the Airport. We got a ride from a cool kid we met named Isaiah. When we got there we went and ate at Paradise bakery. Paradise thought maybe he could get a discount because the place was obviously named after him but that didn't work out. After eating we all said our goodbyes and that's when my trip turned sour. I knew that I was going to be waiting at the airport for a while because my flight wasn't until 6:30 AM and it was only like 11 PM, that I didn't mind because I knew it was going to happen. What I didn't expect however was the weather in Chicago to be crappy and for my 6:30 flight to be canceled and to be placed on a 1:30 flight. After trying to sleep in those uncomfortable chairs for what seemed like forever I found out that that flight was delayed to 3:20. I was at the airport quite literally all day and I wasn't a fan. When I finally got home at like 10 I just passed out... Anyway, overall it was an amazing trip. I met some really great people and it's clear to see why they're sporting V's on their shirts. I can't wait to see these guys again. DEVASTATION 2011 here I come!
  14. Congrats on that invite man. Getting the only invitation for the whole country is already a huge feat in my eyes. I know you're gonna rock the tournament, good luck to you. I'm looking forward to seeing the results
  15. Thanks brother. It was great meeting you.
