      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/

  1. Gaming - :D

    Have you ever had met a person in life who shared all of your interests? Thought the way you do? The Moriarty to your Sherlock - Sometimes the other way around? Well, my brother, Chris, was and is that to me. There is nothing in this world that gets my blood flowing like the thrill of a challenge, a competition, or pursuit of perfection. The earliest memory I have is playing Mortal Kombat Ultimate. My brother was a beast at Nightwolf and Sindel. God, I couldn't stand that fucker and his axe combo; if you know the game, it started with a low kick... followed by an annihilation of your manhood (insert rage). Anyways, we'd play the game with large health pools so that the matches lasted for 7-10 minutes. We figured this would balance out the flukes and allow the better player to always win. It was always him. I would practice hours upon hours, character after character, just to find a way to beat his Nightwolf. I would go so far as to play into the AM's while everyone was asleep on a school night. Finally, a miracle happened. Jesus took the wheel, or in this case, control of the controller leading me to accidentally pick Noob Sabot in the select screen. Well, it turns out the timing of Sabots combos completely and utterly destroy Nightwolf. I ended up figuring out something called an "infinite combo" in the fighter genre, like Marvel vs Capcom. I was unbeatable. This led to my brother demanding the hero be banned from play, lol. Fast forward a few years, and the best game of all time had been created; Starcraft: Brood War. Our second greatest rivalry. I can still remember the day my brother came home with a disc of this game. For all you youngins out there, we had to have cd-rom discs of the game to play it. This is back when windows 95 was the most up to date operating system. Anyways, our buddy Jeremy from down the street was all about this game. We installed, opened the game, picked protoss, and entered a world that would define our childhood. Even to this day, I find myself searching youtube for the game's music, old tournaments, and everything GomTV. The game was flawless. Alright, enough gushing about Starcraft, down to the nitty gritty. Like all games, top tier players separate themselves from the community and create their own secret hideout. In Starcraft, this was Clan x17. To put this place in perspective; think of the biggest crush you've ever had. Now imagine her surrounded by a multitude of bouncers, and around these bouncers are other nerds ust like yourself. Just like the world of dating, clan x17 is the girl you want to bang, and the amount of horny teenagers trying to get in her circle represents the starcraft community. This is where my brother played. Having only 1 computer growing up, I spent a great deal of time watching my brother in a chair right beside him, learning from his every move. There was this one game I remember vividly, the game he played against Testie. This guy was one of the top terran players in North America at the time, a man ahead of his time in terms of skill. Testie decided to do a tank push/contain on my brother's protoss base very early in the game. However, my brother had created a build rushing zealot speed and shuttles in order to drop on top of the tanks, nullifying the terran advantage. The game was a 30 minute slugfest of epic proportion. The result: my brother was victorious. Throughout the next few years, he would play against the top canadian protoss Smuft- from time to time, as well as many other Clan x17 members. I’m not sure of all the opponents anymore, but I am certain he had to of run into Artosis, Tasteless and Day9 at one point or another. As for myself, I played in x17 as well. My defining moment came before my brother’s success in the game. One late night, my brother went over to our friend’s house in order to play me 1v1 online. We played for hours upon hours into the AM’s, digging deeper into competitive nature with each passing game. And so the moment came where I defeated him in 3 straight games, convincingly. My brother didn’t even type a word as his connection disappeared from the LAN screen. I was beside myself because I had never truly beaten him on even terms before. But… he crushed me in a harmful way. The following day he told me this, “I was just playing around you know? I’m still better than you.” As a young, 12 year old boy, I accepted my older brother’s statement and quit Starcraft for good. There are times in my gaming career where I wonder, "what might have been if I had done 'x'?" Well, this is one of them.
  2. Umm... I can't think of anything specifically. I know LotV will come out soon, so if you need someone to help with that I can. I've also read a few forum posts about the current direction of vVv gaming leaning towards the PC side. Do you need anyone to help in any of those areas? I'm highly unaware of the overall state and vision for vVv, but am more than willing to learn and help doing anything that needs to be done.
  3. Yup, it's THE Titan (the one who makes moaning sounds. Ya know, That Guy) So yeah, I have no idea what I want to do. Is there anything you guys are in need of being done? Maybe Sugarbear (organic? what is THAT?) can take me under his gentle and soft wings. Either way, you've got me at your disposal.
  4. About me: I used to be a player for vVv long ago, well, I guess 3-4 years isn't that long. Anyways, I'm on my final year at the University of North Florida as a music education major. When I complete my degree, I intend to teach band at the high school level, which will allow me to create new "this one time at band camp" stories. Outside of music, I've always had a passion for gaming stemming back to playing Mortal Kombat on my SNES, or Starcraft I on my WIN95 computer. Gaming is just something I love and can never bury away within myself. Even to this day, I find myself logging into Civ4 to play on diety with my brother. What is even more, is that I find myself in the practice room thinking of all the great friendships I've made through the game, and the various regrets I have with how I handled my time. That's enough about me. I feel old because of all the memories I have, but it is just the beginning. Upload a personal picture of yourself. If you don't have a picture, please upload one before applying. (please save nudes for private channels): I don't have any pictures, lol. I made a selfie (don't judge) What would you like us to call you? Tristan What is your level (Age)? 28 Where ya from? Born: Portsmouth, Virginia (Navy Brat) -- Jacksonville, FL - Now What games do you currently play? World or Warcraft (sorta) / Civiliation4 What games are you looking forward to playing? I was looking forward to Legacy of the Void, but I dislike the direction of the game. I'll probably still pick it up and get grandmaster for the hell of it. Overwatch looks amazing. How did you hear about vVv Gaming? If it was by time travel device, please indicate the serial number. If by wizard, please indicate who. Wizard: "You're a Wizard Harry!" Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? Do you wish you didn't know them? I know a couple people, lol. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Wait, what's "outside of gaming"? Ultimate Frisbee, Trumpet, Music, Manga/Manhwa (Tower of God is the Sh*t), Conducting, Teaching, Redheads Do you have problems with toxicity or toxic behavior in game? If so, what have you done to reform this behavior? Would you like us to set you up with a "correctional administrator" (please submit $15 torture device maintenance fee)? I could be in denial, but I don't know if I've been completely toxic. I know in DOTA I've been a horrible person, but that game changes people man. Aite fine, I'm toxic from time to time. But you know what? If I present an idea which I perceive to be true, I will not back down from my belief until convinced otherwise. I think I'm more confident (egotistic) than toxic. When you play games, do you tend to grind games as much as possible, or do you often reflect on your mistakes and actively seek to improve upon them? Having played at a high level before, I believe there needs to be a balance between both of these styles of learning. I used to find myself on the tedious and reflective side. However, I didn't mass enough games and learn the different strategies and build orders that were currently present on the Ladder. In the end, I would become sloppy whenever faced with a foreign strategy. So, my belief is that there is a time for both sides of the spectrum to outweigh the other. Finding the balance is the hardest part about fulfilling one's potential. Have you ever competed in or attended any online or LAN tournaments? National events? (PAX, LCS, IEM, etc.)? Stripper competitions? All the above. The stripper competition didn't end how I had hoped... turns out I'm pretty average... and slightly above in other areas. What type of organization are you looking to join? What would the ideal environment look like for you? Would it have complementary pudding cups? Here is the bottom line. I have the utmost respect for Jerry and everyone in this organization. All I want to do is give back to the organization which helped me a great deal earlier in my life. Whatever you need from me, I will do my best to help in any way I can. What I'd personally like to be is a resource for those who are giving it a go at the competitive gaming thing. I don't know everything, but I would like to share the knowledge of things I have learned through the many years I played in the competitive scene. I would hope that perhaps it may be of some help to those within the community. IQ Test Portion.
