      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.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      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!

  1. Don't forget we raised 500k in a week for the HCS!!!
  2. disregard...i found it
  3. So was thinking of re-creating this thread...But this one's here...So who would be interested in starting this up again?
  4. It's right in my back yard as well!!!! Would be happy to arrange some rides to grab some grub while its in town!!
  5. Kinda feel like this will be the testing block for the million dollar tournament....I haven't heard of the IG 10k before....Like at all....Not one mention of it(I know it just got announced but tournaments like these generally have some sort of rumored event)
  6. I'm extremely skeptical of this whole thing....I'm willing to give it a chance...I feel like it is to little to late and they may be doing it for the wrong reasons....Do not get me wrong...I'll be the first one to fight for it. But they haven't given a single care up until Halo started dying....Why should they care now? Because it might save their game? Mehhhhh
  7. So Halo had a decent turn out for PAX....Was crazy...School has been beating me over the head since it started....Senior year of being a double major sucks hahahaha.
  8. I tend to agree with Sun Down on this....You guys might want to look into the website and community a bit more. I hate to do it, but figured I would put it out here before people got to involved, vVv currently(as far as I know) is not looking to pick up a Halo team, as we are attempting to re-build the Halo division, you guys are more than welcome to stick around and help with this. The help would be welcome, then apply at a later date!
  9. I'd like to do one on Thursday if we can get the people and if the game will cooperate
  10. Hey, I'd like to grab the 5/6 people we have togeather on XBL on Thursday night if everyone would be free....Say, 9pm EST give or take? Anyone's free to join in as well though! Thanks
  11. FR is sent! WIll add to the group once you accept
  12. Yepp, I already have been As of right now, everyone whom is active is added to the skype.
  13. Updated my post a tad haha
  14. Whats going on folks! Figured I should make another thread since there are a whole bunch of new faces around My name is David, or Apollo, i'm 23 from Pennsylvania! I am a Marketing/Management double major in my 6th year of college(graduating in May yay!!!!) but changing my majors half way through sucks and screwed me over haha. Gaming wise? I've been in vVv before Proud member of the Halo division back in the day, coach of vVv Ability(Halo Reach team) we placed 17th at the last Columbus event where Halo was held. Looking to hopefully bring back the Halo division Figured i'd pop in and say hello
  15. Honestly, I dont have the time right now to respond to this thoroughly, as I am about to head out to work.......Short answer is Yes and No for both. I'll update once i get back from work. But yeah.....Those two, as well as a night where we can just have fun, and build/get to know the community from within...One night where we can just have fun, cause that is what gaming is really about. Edit Before work: Like I said though, thats part of my personal input...vVv CGN was Andy's baby back in the day Edit: I feel that it will be a good way to develop players and reach out to find new players for a while, it would be a consistent thing for people to do an consistancy is key. So people would know Wednessday night, we are playing Halo. On the flip side however, after a while, we may only see the same people, so therefore it would stop to be a factor, eventually. As for developing, sure it'll help when we are taking things seriously.
