      Changes to the Application Process   08/03/2016

      Hello Everyone!   I'm creating this announcement to inform every vVv applicant that I have introduced a few short-term goals that we all will be working toward accomplishing over the next few weeks. One of these goals directly affects your application process.  If you would like to read the full post in detail, and maybe learn a little about me, follow this link. The TL;DR of why I'm addressing this announcement to you is to inform you that our application process will be undergoing a few dramatic changes that will affect your application. vVv Gaming wants to be as transparent as possible when it comes to what changes our Staff team makes and why. We will be changing the applications themselves as well as how they work. Our community wants and needs a larger say in who is accepted and who isn't. We also want to encourage community interaction as much as possible. With these changes, we are wanting to allow members the ability to give constructive criticism to applicants, provide the opportunity for applicants to interact with members and other applicants that they normally may not, and open a platform for discussion and the sharing of ideas. With the reimplementation of the Endorsement System, vVv Gaming is looking to give the power back to our Members and put the fate of the Applicant (and their application!) in their own hands. Applicants will need to receive 5 endorsements from current vVv Members (Staff endorsements work as well!) to earn their pre-interview. If an Applicant fails to receive a new endorsement every 3 weeks the application will be closed. Full details on how the Endorsement System works can be found through this link. Because we are introducing new application forms and a different way of how the application process works, we will be closing all currently open applications. Once the new application forms are posted, all applicants that had an application open during this time will be able to immediately reopen their applications. This means that those applicants do not need to wait 30 days as the new rule states, this will be a one-time exception due to circumstances under which these applications were closed. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message. I apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause. Thank you for your patience and your enthusiasm for joining vVv Gaming!

      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!

Mondays will continue to be our draft night and due to your feedback, we will be returning to a format of random captains with the ability to opt out of being a captain. Wednesdays will continue to be a night for pre-made 3v3 teams. Supersonic Series Season 4 is happening and we will be announcing information on that and the start date at a later time.   Monday Night Draft

  1. Ohhhhh! I have been looking for a MMO to play with a friend from back home! We thought about this one. :):):):):):):)
  2. I will always support vVv's direction. Medusa is motivated and and smart; I think she will be a good leader. Cheers, vVv.
  3. Hey guys, I'm at work right now, so I'll edit this later. Any vVv members, and any vVv prospects can message me for some Archon mode fun! I'll coach you through the games, assist you, and you will get to feel first hand what intense Star Craft is all about; without the ladder anxiety! I'll reply with my battle.net information here later. POWER OVERWHELMING!
  4. I am so down!
  5. I am interested in starting a team, but only with those who are interested in perusing this competitively, and will actually take the time, and steps to take this to the semi-pro and professional levels. I personally have a long way to go, but I can do it.
  6. hasu17
  7. It's good to be back. Lots of work to do! Let's catch up soon old friend! Hey Spike! Long time no see! I certainly hope it sparks everyone, who is, and once was, passionate about this franchise. Heart of the Swarm was a huge let down.
  8. Hello everyone, Been nearly a few years since I've been with vVv. How is everyone doing? Anyone planning on revisiting SC2: LOTV? I certainly am, and I am looking to bring a community, and a semi-professional/pro-am team back to vVv. Whose coming with me? vVvHasuuCrAfT
  9. I'm sorry for your loss guys. Terrible tragedy. rip :'(
  10. I'll let you know when I pass 1600 . A lot of people have been saying the same thing you have said. I absolutely know exactly what you mean, but as Jungler I do have control over the game. We'll see how far I get, but I will learn a carry very soon if my rating ELO comes to a stand still. vVvHasuu.791 is my account. I'm not on much anymore, but add me up. I'm training a silver leaguer friend I work with./ So maybe you can tag in some sessions.
  11. Hi guys, As some of you may or may not know - I was on the StarCraft 2 division as a sponsored player. As our company focus's towards new games, I figured I would jump aboard our LoL community and have some fun. I've been playing almost 4 months now and I got a long way to go. I'm considering taking it to the professional level, but not sure yet. HOTS is coming out soon and I believe I still have what it takes to splash on the SC2 scene. Currently I am about 1450-1500 ELO and I main as a Jungler. People often refer to Sejuani as very under powered, but I beg to differ. I actually think she is much better than Amumu in the jungle in S3 with the new items and buffs. I have still so, so, so much to learn. Aiming to get around 1800-1900 in just a couple more months and I plan on taking Sejuani as far as I can take her. My next interested heroes are Noc, Malph, Vi, and Thresh. I choose to play uncommon heroes for some reason.. I always feel that there is something to prove, and as a former Balance Designer myself, under powered heroes scream for my attention. My summoner name is "Hasuu" and I look forward to meeting and learning from you all. Cheers, Colin "vVvHasuu" Hamilton
  12. Hey guys! Sorry I havent been around to boot up coaching or doing any replay reviews. After the holidays you can expect to see me back. I'll be doing the replay reviews a little differently. Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.
  13. Hes a PvPer; takes far less time and effort to play arena than to organize raids. I was only an 1800 Rogue. I havent played since multiple redesigns.
  14. Generally, your opening was correct, but you did not use chrono boost effectively in the early game at all. You also want to to avoid getting a Stargate before any sentries. Also, don't open two zealot when doing this build; instead zealot/stalker/sentry is the way to go. When you scouted your enemy, you noticed he had nearly 3 chrono boosts, 1 gas, and a zealot building. With this information, you should be weary of a gateway rush, as it was aiming to be that way. Additionally, your probe can stick around and continue to scout until that stalker is about halfway built, then you may run away safely. Go hold the middle tower with a zealot or your probe so that you know this isnt coming. This will allow you to opt out of building the second sentry, simply because you know you are safe; allowing for more gas for Robo and Stargate. When opening Phoenix, it's wise to chrono boost out two as fast as possible; some players scout on the first, some wait for the second, because you can snipe two gas probes and take the information and be on your way. I think either or is okay, because the first phoenix will still gather all the valuable information you need. Also, when executing this the purpose is containment and information. You already know this, but you built just too many phoenix. 4-5 will do the trick just nicely. You also need to be a little more active with them; Phoenix are the fastest air unit in the game, so make sure to use them that way. Its incredibly easy to drive by snipe sentry's and probes. Also, when transferring probes make sure that both nexus are rallied to the expansion if your main is already saturated; you want to saturate your exp as quickly as possible. You also expanded much more effectively against him, so you need to get your gas on the expansion faster and advance your tech. You actually almost lost to his push because you simply had too many Phoenix, and Immortals and not enough AoE and Zealots. You don't need many immortals to deal with too many Stalkers as the Colossus are already going to do a fantastic job. By overbuilding phoenix and immortals you left a window open to be killed. Most players will go directly for colossus tech, because it simply helps them defend better, and will be great against stalker, zealot, immortal, archon. In the main fight you will be lifting immortals and stalkers, and your own 3 Immortal/3 Colo army with gateway units will shred him apart. Also, keep a observer with your army, as he was watching you a good amount of the time. After the second base is up and running throw down a second Robo and maintain an AoE advantage over his Anchons and make sure to have enough zealots to tank enough damage so your colosus remain untouched. Remember you do not need anymore phoenix beyond the 4-5 originally. You need to learn to extend your leads. Next time your in this same position throw down a double robo faster after expansion, and you could of easily maintained the upgrade advantage the whole game; your forges were not active enough. Always, always, always be spread apart in defensive posture. (spread out) You want to aim for a 8 Colossus army, then begin to add a meat shield of immortals, then its a small group of stalkers, and zealot/archon. If the game goes super late you add a mother ship into the mix. If minerals begin to float close to a 200 army you just expand and add gateways. Against compositions such as his, dont be shy to build half-gateway walls to use a defensive choke point against units such as zealot/immortal/archon push. Its a staple defensive method, and once you get enough colo, the game is yours unless he does something drastic and you make a colossal mistake. Break down 1. Zealot/Stalker/Sentry opening begin second sentry and cancel it if nothing is coming your way. Remember to hold the Xel'Naga tower. When cross positions' I can't stress how important it is. It may allow you to skip a step or two. Keep the Stalker/Sentry close to home to prevent scouting and defend. 2. Chrono boost for the love of Auir! Probes, units anything, But especially probes. Full chrono boost is pretty much always bad. 3. Do not over build Phoenix and only expand when you know your safe. You moved out before you knew what was coming. 4. Do not over build immortals. Colo/Zealot/Phoenix/Immortal is going to hold a Zealot/Immortal/Archon/Blink Stalker army any day. Control the immortals with phoenix and position the rest of your units properly. Even if he wipes our your meat shields, the colo advantage should pull through with the back up of your gateways. 5. You have to try and pay out more with the Phoenix focus on this, there was a lot of nice openings and gaps you could of exploited. You will get better with multitasking. 6. Faster second Robo after expansion, and make sure to double assimilator your expansion ASAP. Gas is too important in PvP. 7. You expanded faster, and teched harder. You should of been ahead in upgrades, and higher tech units, instead you were only 2-2. You build probes through the game, which is good. You need to make sure your observation improves so you know how to pounce on and extend leads. By cutting down 1-2 phoenix and 1-2 immortal you already have another Robo bay down producing double colo. You should try to get this as reasonably fast as possible toward a saturated income and 4 gas.
