      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!

      vVv Gaming Returns: Community Game Nights! (CGNs)   08/15/2016

      Rocket League Community Game Nights (CGN) with vVv Gaming are back starting on Monday, August 22nd!  These CGNs will allow teams and individual Rocketeers to continue to bring their A game and level up their gaming skills in two unique events each week! Whether the goal is to improve teamwork, find suitable opponents, or just acquire valuable feedback on how to improve one’s game-play, these events will help accomplish just that! 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
      When: 9PM  EST (6PM PST)  Check-in starts at 8:30PM EST and closes at 8:45PM EST
      Where: vVv Discord Server  (https://discord.gg/p44AjNf)  Discord Guide: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/discord Format: 3vs3 - Double Elimination Tournament. Best of three in the winner's bracket and best of one in the loser's bracket until the last two matches which return to best of three. Captains are chosen at random and each captain picks their team-mates. Registration: Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/RLRegister on the day of the tournament to register.  While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain.  If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of tea`ms, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers.  If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players.  Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team.  Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

Bygone: exactly vVvMagnet: my friend got kicked out of vVv Bygone: i can just as easily change my name to have vVv in front of it and half of you wouldn't know the difference You: You can.

  7. I'm doing good as well. Just catching up on the vVv latest. Been missing out.
  8. Hello all who read this and know me, and to all those who read this and don't know me. Just wanted to drop by and say hi and ask how everyone's doing. That being said, how's everyone doing?
  9. New phone! Xperia play. How freaking cool can something get?

  10. Thankful for vVv!

    This year; one of the things I'm thankful is none other than... vVv, umm duh, especially LordJerith. But, it's not just because they are here to play games with, and that they're just a great group of guys and gals, though those things help. It's actually because no matter how my real life is going, or how it dampens my ability to do the things I need to do for vVv, they always have my spot open for me when things settle down. Hopefully, with how things are going now, I'll be much more active, and have the ability to do much more for the vVv Family that I love so much. Now, on to LordJerith. I'm thankful for him as he is always around to talk to about family problems when no one else around, including real life friends due to their immaturity and other such nuisances, is willing to just chill and talk. Thank you LordJerith, I appreciate it. Expect me to keep my work load up and consistently completing tasks from this point on for you guys. --- Recap: Thanks to LordJerith and vVv in general. You guys are great! --- Written kind of fast, as I now have to leave to go eat grandparents, etc. Have a good thanksgiving everyone whether you're vVv or not! Though, if you're reading this you better be or be becoming part of vVv, or I'll hunt you down.
  11. Behind the Player: vVv Zero --- Released: http://t.co/uaKfkNW2

  12. - vVv Zero * vVv Zero Twitter * * vVv Zero Facebook * --- vVv Killzmane: Tell the community a little about yourself. vVv Zero: I’m a high school student that studies at home. I live in South America, Chile, Chillan. I live with my mom, my two dogs (Maxi and Copo) and my mom’s cat (Bandido). I’m a very social person that’s always down to do anything. Hang out with my friends, read a book, watch a movie or take my dogs to a walk. --- vVv Killzmane: As we all know, you play Super Smash Brothers Brawl. What made you choose the Brawl fighting style game over a First Person Shooter like Halo, or a Real-time Strategy game like StarCraft 2? vVv Zero: I love Nintendo and its characters. And for me, every Nintendo game has a “magic sparkle” on them. I also love the soundtrack of every Smash game. - --- vVv Killzmane: Have you ever played another game competitively? vVv Zero: I played Halo 3 & Reach competitively. I love the competitive community of Halo and the skill that Halo takes to be played at a high level of competition. --- vVv Killzmane: You are Chilean so; tell us, have you ever competed outside of Chile? vVv Zero: Not yet. But I’m planning to attend Apex 2012 with the awesome help of vVv Gaming. --- vVv Killzmane: What are the best competitions you’ve been too, whether the reasoning be, simply the venue, or how you placed? vVv Zero: The 1st and 2nd National Tournaments were AMAZING. Playing the Melee grand finals with 150 people watching was AWESOME, so much hype! And winning Brawl Singles & Doubles for the 2nd National tournament felt AMAZING. --- vVv Killzmane: Who do you think your biggest competition is in and outside of Chile? vVv Zero: Inside of Chile: My best friend, Iori. He knows EXACTLY how I play. Outside: Ally, Mew2King, Anti, Brood, 9B, Mr R, Leon. They are AMAZING players. --- vVv Killzmane: What kind of preparation do you think it takes to place high at the most prestigious brawl tournaments? vVv Zero: Practice, practice and more practice. Not only in the game, but also outside of the game. You have to be ready for EVERYTHING in a tournament. No excuses. - --- vVv Killzmane: If it becomes clear to that a really known, good, and talented player will be at a tournament you are soon attending, do you ever prepare, particularly, for that player, or is it just preparing for the match-up? vVv Zero: Yes, always. I practice for the player and the match up. I watch tons of videos of that player and I study a LOT how that player plays before the tournament. --- vVv Killzmane: Do you play any other games casually? vVv Zero: Sometimes. It depends on how much I’m practicing, or if I’m just really bored. Games like Ace Attorney and Halo are quite common. --- vVv Killzmane: Aside from the obvious, what is your favorite genre of games? vVv Zero: I don't have a favorite genre in video games. ¡I'm down for anything! --- vVv Killzmane: As a member of vVv, what are your responsibilities to team, and how do you go about accomplishing these tasks? vVv Zero: As a Smash player, I have to: Take great pictures at every tournament, place well at every tournament, and then write a good blog summarizing the tournament. --- vVv Killzmane: Thanks for spending the time to answer a few questions for this interview. Are there any final things you’d like to save, or shout-outs you’d like to give? vVv Zero: Thanks for having me, and yes! I would like to give shout-outs to my Mom for supporting me on everything, and being a WONDERFUL mother. Shout-outs to my Sister, this is for you Paloma! Shout-outs to my friends, Felipe, Jose, Mauricio for being AWESOME friends all this time. Shout-outs to my aunts Jessica, Marcela and Ester for being the BESTS Aunts of all time! Shout-outs to EVERYONE that has housed me for a tournament; Rodrigo, Ivan, Marcos, Jaime, Miguel! Shout-outs to vVv Gaming for supporting me, and helping me to become a better player and person. Shout-outs to the vVv Smash members! Cheese, ChiboSempai, Pelca and Kirikou Rung. You guys are AWESOME! Shoutouts to the amazing vVv Gaming staff: LordJerith, DoomHammer, Exodus, SugarBear, Slauney and Voison! AMAZING people and staff. Shoutouts to Killzmane! Thanks for the interview! - --- Written and edited by: Matthew "Killzmane" Spaulding
  13. Scheduling Changes

    Please bear with me through this, Reasons for changes, numero uno (number one): School started back a couple weeks ago, and between school, football, and other stuff, it's tough for me to do ANYTHING throughout the weekdays. Reasons for changes, numero dos (number two): It's more convenient for me and makes me more reliable. What is changing? Times that Community Spotlights and Behind the Team/Players interviews will be published. Details? Community Spotlights will still be twice a month, only it will come out on Sunday's. Behind the (whatever) will be on a week-by-week basis depending on when/if I have one scheduled for that week. Will ALWAYS come out on Sundays though. Most likely, the Sundays at which no Community Spotlight is dated. Community Spotlights will be the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the Month. Months that have FIVE Sundays will have a Community Spotlight on the 1st and 4th Sundays of the month. That being said, Behind the Team/Players will be on: Months with four Sundays, 2nd and/or 4th Sundays. Months with five Sundays, 2nd and/or 3rd and/or 5th Sundays, again depending on if there is one scheduled. All other activities, and jobs I currently have will commence/resume/end on Saturdays. Outlook of my schedule: Can't do krap on Weekdays, basically. Weekends, filled with homework, some downtime, will be spent mostly on vVv from this point forward. Side Note: Understand for all Community Spotlightees, Behind the Playerees/Teamees that ALL interviews will be sent out as normal throughout the Weekdays, and Microphone interviews will be conducted on Saturdays. Thanks, vVv Killzmane Writing Staff.
