      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!

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

      Please come to watch and show your support!

  1. Formally know as Sugar, whats the story behind the name change?

  2. Balmung just sounds raunchy
  3. It wouldn't be League if it wasn't All Random All Botlane
  4. Most of those nerfs are very minor. Everything needs to be nerfed until ADC is in the game for more than to push towers and DPS baron.
  5. Actually that was more directed at the people who don't do anything but talk about how good things used to be than intended for you.
  6. Staff is and has always been willing to listen.
  7. How is BDO? I've heard it's become very "pay to compete" with real-money purchasable content giving you pretty big advantages when it comes to major loot events (world bosses or something?). Any thoughts on that? Do you see yourself playing it for a while? What are some things you want to change to make your life great and enjoyable? Do any of those relate to gaming? I understand Bagzli's perspective because it feels like there's just a long parade of old-timers doing nothing, waiting for things to get better, and then making angsty melodramatic posts that lack any real substance or feedback when they decide to leave. I also understand that this isn't what your intentions were when you wrote this post, but it does strike a similar chord. Just looking at the responses on your Facebook post it's clear that others felt you were joining with them in that kind of exit, so it's understandable that Bagzli would pick up on that. I also feel like there's too much focus on negativity and "but things used to be this way...". You'll never see the way forward by looking backward. People who get disgruntled and then leave because "things used to be better" are just a distraction. Give me some feedback with substance and we can talk. I get it though. Leading is hard. Extremely hard. To me now, it seems so obvious what people could do to improve the organization, but looking back to where I started I also had no fucking idea how to lead. Fuck, I didn't even know how to be authentic back then, not even with myself, what a critical skill to be missing in a leader. People feel like they don't even know where to start, and for the most part they are too afraid of failure to even try, so of course nothing happens. I get it. I don't blame anyone. I just want to look forward and build something that makes the world better, something that I really believe in and can put my passion behind. Dwelling on what one facet of a community was like half a decade ago doesn't inspire me, and it's amazing to me that people spend so much time doing it. People went inactive and left in 2012 too. People went inactive and left when we had teams competing at every MLG and even teams who stood a pretty decent chance of winning. Look at the list: #BelievVve anyone? Glon facing off against Stephano and making him sweat? Ruff making it to the top 16 in an INTERNATIONAL SC2 competition? REO and CDJr winning 1st and 2nd every MLG for an entire season? People will leave. I had to struggle with people to get them active on the forums , active on the shoutbox, and active in-game the entire time I was on staff, so that's nothing new either. Looking at who comes and goes, or who is posting what, it's all wind. What impact we can have on the world tomorrow, how to position ourselves to make that difference, and how to most effectively budget our time and effort to pursue our passion is substance. I'd rather vVv become a group of 3 people actively working toward that type of change than 100 people playing games poorly, jerking themselves off on the forums, and waiting for someone else to do something about their problems. Gaming is huge. It's a huge opportunity to connect with people and make a difference. Look at Operation Supply Drop. Look at Extra Life and Child's Play. Riot improving the quality of life for esports athletes. Twitch supporting gamers who want to stream games for a living. Even some guild leader running Uncle Woody's Fucking Clan just to create a space for people to laugh and socialize together, all of it contributes to making a better world. We can all make a difference if we want to. I'd encourage each and every person making a post negging on vVv or even dwelling on the past to instead use that time and energy to think of one thing they'd like to change in the world, and come up with a plan to lead that change. I think that would be a much better use of time and energy.
  8. Hey Sean, I remember meeting you at a couple MLGs but unfortunately never really got a chance to bond with you. I'm curious if you are still playing games, and if so, what games are you playing right now? Would also love to hear what's important in your life right now. Other than reminiscing about old times, what do you see in the world that you'd like to change and in what way would you change it?
