      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/

  6. A huge piece of information I made about my gaming career so far, and our team, titled: "Making a name for myself" By Charles "Spectre" Draga Went from Gears of War 2, to Modern Warfare 2 then moved to Black Ops after becoming a full time Call of Duty Player. Back in Call of Duty 4 I played with Driven by Instinct. Starting off my Gow2 career I lead the team Sacred Image which ended up 2 players from the team turning into Semi Pro players. Anyways after switching to MW2 I basically played that to practice and get better going into this game. Played with Savage for about 2 days with Exquizent, Noxide, and tR Pr1mal. They wanted to go with NightFox though which I had no problem and then look for 1. So me and Pr1mal ended up free. After that I ended up being free for a little and running with some good teams but never really found anything set that interested me going into Ops. After a while I decided to give it a shot and create something. Me and Phantom (Hoody) then started C5. We picked up SpooK (Li7eMare/FearLess) and Crush. We played with that team for a while and then I left and went on a search again because everyone was fighting to much. After that things didnt work out between those 3 and me and Phantom then started looking for 2 again. On our search and moving into the game we went to team with NeMo and PoinT. NeMo wasnt active when the game came out according to Phantom so he wanted him dropped and we ended up picking up Caution. We stayed for this team with a matter of time after the release building but then Caution up and left for no reason to team with Expo, didnt tell us anything just left. We were 19-1 at the time top 10 on team ladder, really in all reality who cares about that. We had a couple options of who to run with but decided to drop PoinT because he didnt fit with who we were trying to run. After that me and Phantom ran for days looking around, ran with some solid players but he wanted to build a team with some people that had no prior skill or big time experience in MW2 or COD4. So we thence parted ways. That was the complete end of C5 for me. After that he teamed back up with SpooK and in a matter of time they changed the roster again, lots of roster changes, thats why I left. Anyway C5 has their set 4 now. After that I went on and knew I had a chance to be big in this game. After Sony released the $25,000 ladder for PS3 I got a PS3 the next day. Note* more than likely this game will be MLG for PS3 anyhow. Going on I decided I was going to build a team once again, but this time it was going to stick and become something big. I figured moving to PS3 id start off trying to find a team, so I joined Severance with Sly and Jay and we were teaming with Amazing, but Amazing and and Sly were very inactive which held us back in going on into the game. So we both became F/A's. Note* Jay is a very good player. I spoke to Pope a few days prior but he had already had a team. I then spoke to him days later and figured out that he was now a F/A because his teammate could no longer play during the week. So this is where our big team began. Me and Pope started up Damage Points and then we were looking for 2. After going through all our options and running with some people we decided to bring back my teammate Jay, who is a awesome teammate to say the least. So the main 3 anyway whom started dP were me Pope and Jaymann. Anyways we were looking at all our options and we really had to make something of our team before we could get any top player offers to run. We needed someone so we could start playing so I stayed up until 2 in the morning on a school night looking for a 4th so we could play 25k. Ended up I finally hit up Mochila. After our first day as a team running, and playing we decided this will actually be something if we stay together as a team. We decided we could work with Mochila and turn him into something. He already had great skill, just needed to work on his attitude and we did just that. He now has no more emo rage towards the game which was a huge plus. So Damage Points was set. We started playing 25k together and won our first match 2-0. Second day GB was down all night so we scrimmed as a team for a couple hours. 3rd day we played 2 matches, 1st match was against HOBL/Trademark/SyNergy. Anyways we lost, best part was we kept our heads up. Going back and posting another match we seen we had another tough challenge to play against, the pro team Nex[-TT-]hreat. Indeed it was a well fought match, in the end we 2-0'ed them and easily knew we had the skill to compete at a very top level in this game. 4th day I went to the Cavs vs. Heat game and we got to do 1 match when I was back. 2-0'ed them. Every team we played we have shutout so far accept our 1 loss. We have been building every day as a team and making great progress. Our motto is this
  7. Yessir I like all the faces they have there funny, the banana dance is phat lol
  8. If it were Black Ops im going for sure. They will end up having one with enough votes and support for the game. My team will definitely be heading there in great spirits and hopes to win if there is one. Good luck in the Reach tournament though to all who are going.
  9. There awesome, look the same exact way as my sig but just say fan bar. Awesome for sigs, we are trying to build some support out there in the gaming world. Got a great great team going right now. Couple MW2 pro players on our team who went to nats so we are looking for cool supporters! Just post your AIM and I will send you the fan bar thank you everyone who is going to support us!
  10. My teammate Jay is from Chicago, we are currently all applying to become a vVv Black Ops team. http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=46054&st=40 There is our team name if you want to wish me and him luck. Add me of PS3 if you have one and him PSN: Spec_MaNia PSN: JayMann-_-
  11. lol I dont understand this. What is your point just asking.
  12. Wrong place but I still got you on a answer. What drives you to be as good as you are when in tournaments ? When in tournaments the most driving factor is winning and adrenaline. When you make that big play to change the tempo of the game and you know it, you get the greatest feeling and it just pushes such adrenaline within you to carry on and keep going. The most key factor though to continuing doing this to dominate is being consistent. How do you get so good at that certain game you enter a tournament for? Being good at a certain game is a gift for no one, you must work and work hard to keep getting better and becoming something so you feel confident traveling and going into a tournaments so you can come out on top. You need dedication and team with chemistry, then you scrim and practice, practice, practice, and when your team is not on and you are, get in some pickups, go hard and practice some more in them like you would in real situation. Are there any obstacles that you must break through? Well being under pressure would be one thing, to know you have people watching you play on main stage or even on live stream millions of people can watch and say hey that kids doing amazing or even good, or they might be saying that kids doing bad. Fact is you will never know what people are saying when you are playing but you have to play and prove yourself to be one of the best. Stay calm and cool under pressure, dont get to hyped or overconfident or even cocky or you could lose. The main thing is as I was taught and stuck with, "never play like you have something to prove" mainly saying do your own thing what you practiced so hard, have fun with it, if you play like you have something to prove you will play bad no doubt. Who are the people who are always there to support you when you play? When I play my support are all my close friends in the Call of Duty community, if our team application is accepted and we become a vVv Black Ops team I will definitely be looking forward to the support of all the great people in the community, and my last 2 are my Dad who I travel with hes mad cool, and God. It may sound corny and all but I look up to him and he definitely guides every one of us every day, as I believe. But thats all hope this helped
  13. If you have a PS3 lemme know your PSN and I will add you bro
  14. Even though there my teammates gotta like the love being shown! Hopefully I will get some more good nominations. Thanks guys!
  15. My votes all in order were: Call of Duty Black Ops Forza Motorsport 3 WarCraft 3: Frozen Throne NBA 2K11 World of Warcraft: Cataclysm DJ Hero 2 Definitely interested in Black Ops for sure. Got our great team application going right now with vVv and I will also be playing some Cataclysm when it is out, should be a awesome switch in the WoW world!
