Killzmane added a topic in Off-TopicAnother day, another whollop?Bygone: mostly protoss though
You: what about protoss?
Bygone: broken as shit
You: Going to go ahead and move on to something else, before this conversation becomes long and drawn out.
How is everyone today?
Bygone: probably for the better, not like you know what ur talking about anyway
You: You're right.
vVvMagnet: its ok clearly he does since hes #1 in the game and has won so many gsl's
oh wait he hasnt
Nothing more needs to be said.
Bygone: k then leave
You: You are in my team's channel.
Bygone: you're 'team' doesn't want you here either
just another guy that decided he wanted to sign up on the website
vVvMagnet: if they didnt want him they woulda kicked him...
You: "You are" can't want anything because that doesn't fit in your sentence.
Bygone: can't kick him
vVvMagnet: yeah you can
kick me out of here right now
You: And if you hate how vVv runs thing, why do you continue to chill in this channel.
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.
I'm glad you'd be supporting our organization.
You: You are adding population in our SC2 channel?
Bygone: which in turn obviously supports all of what u guys do right
You: Our community is everything to us.
The more the merrier.
Bygone: its cus its all you have
You: Just have to be dedicated.
Bygone: nothing else to pride urself on
bryan gemler (vVvGlon): Why such hate?
You: We also pride ourselves on many championships, like in the recent MLG, our fighters won both first and second place.
Bygone: acttually wathced that..very impressive
You: Your ability to try and down vVv is not impressive.
You actually suck at it.
But, please, we would love it if you'd continue to idle our channel.
Bygone: wasn't tryin to down it at all
just sayin its not a big deal to be on it
You: You say that, because you are not on it.
Bygone: ? lol no
i thought about signing up on the website..but i dont wanna use my only namechange
LGShowtime: bygone im not on vvv and even i know
they do so much shit for the community >>
vVvMagnet: you probably wouldnt be accepted even if you did, mainly cause you continue to be very rude and all you do is complain
You: He would be accepted. And then two days later he would go into a room with Jerry in it, and Jerry would make him cry in a corner while sucking his thumb for being so insolent.
Bygone: who the hell is jerry lol
You: Shows how much you know about our organization, and yet you judge it on the fact that "all we do is pride ourselves on the community"
Bygone: great...you gonna tell me now?
You: No. Jerry's name need not be spoken, or described to garbage like you.
You: ^ for good measure
Bygone: so how do you know about him?
BluDragon: we're a good guys
You: And yet, I may be garbage. If that is true, that's okay.
Because vVv is a family, and they have accepted me into the family.
Shoutouts to vVv Magnet, LGShowTime, BluDragon, and vVv Glon.

Killzmane added a blog entry in ThanksgivingThankful 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.

Killzmane added a topic in InterviewsBehind the Player: 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!

Killzmane added a blog entry in Community SpotlightScheduling ChangesPlease 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.
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.

Killzmane added a topic in InterviewsCommunity Spotlight: vVv Titan
vVv TitanvVv Killzmane: Tristan "Titan" Johnson, what in the world are you all about?
vVv Titan: Well, I have lots of problems. Where to start? I make baby giggle noises and horny Asian girl sounds, emphasize that they are girl noises. I enjoy long walks on the beach, ultimate Frisbee, trumpet, all genres of music, sports, and I am available! When it comes to food, I am the most picky eater in the world. However, I am a huge lover of Shellfish and dark meat Chicken. Oh man, my favorite part is the liver type thing on thighs, you know, the stuff on the backside between the bone? SO GOOD. I've started working out at home recently, because the monthly fee around here is like 60+ a month. No thanks. So, I found a website my brothers’ suggested, scoobysworkshop.com, it helps create a routine for every month and a half. My personality is comprised of a few major things, I'm eccentric, hyper-active, focused, and enjoy being the underdog in everything. There isn't much more you need to know about me.
vVv Killzmane: Do you have any brothers or sisters?
vVv Titan: Yup, I am the youngest of 4 and whenever my birthday comes around our ages align. I am 24, my sister Brittany is 25, my brother Adam is 26, and my oldest brother Chris is 27.
vVv Killzmane: Every family is different, so tell us about your family.
vVv Titan: Overall, my family is rather conservative in all aspects. There isn't much to say about them, except that they are all extremely wealthy except for my mother and step-father. No bitterness there.
vVv Killzmane: Do you work, go to school, or neither?
vVv Titan: Now this is an interesting question to answer considering the decision I made a few months ago. I was offered a full-scholarship to USF as a music major for the Fall '11 semester. However, life sometimes gives you an opportunity to do something you really enjoy and you have to take it. I do love music and intend to eventually finish my degree but, I have decided to pursue Starcraft 2 for the time being. Of course, the consequences have led to the loss of my scholarship and uncertainty for when I'll finish schooling. But, I do not regret this decision considering it only comes around once in a lifetime.
vVv Killzmane: Many people probably have never been to your town, me included, so tell us a little bit about it.
vVv Titan: Really? My Town? Bleh. Palmetto, FL, sometimes referred to as Palmghetto. It is a quaint little town only 10-15 miles vertically and horizontally, it hosts a small population. A better way to describe where I live would probably be to generalize it within its county. Last time I checked, Manattee County was the 2nd most populated county by retired folk in the USA. The driving consists of abysmal 35's in 50's, right lane interstate driving in all lanes, and having to be an offensive driver. Yay! Activities include Bowling, movie theatres, and putt-putt. It sucks. Does someone need a roommate?
vVv Killzmane: What causes you to choose too play a Real-time Strategy game like StarCraft 2, as opposed to a First Person Shooter like Black Ops, or even another genre of game that is competitive?
vVv Titan: Ya know, this question is kind of tough to answer because my heart honestly lies with FPS games. Long ago I played Delta Force 1, 2, land warrior, task force dagger, black hawk down, and joint operations. I was utterly terrible at first, but eventually learned how to be precise and become a top player in the community. However, the reason I play RTS is because Starcraft has always had a hold on me. I can still remember the first time playing the game as Protoss, the feeling the game brought upon me is unexplainable. Just, amazement, wonder, and yeah, unexplainable.
vVv Killzmane: Have you ever tried to become competitive in a genre other than Real-time Strategy?
vVv Titan: I played competitive Dota during the early stages of its drive to be a competitive e-Sport. The reason I switched from Dota to Starcraft really only has to do with the Blizzard brand. I've played SC:BW, WC, TFT, Dota, WoW, and now Starcraft 2. So, it was kind of pre-determined that Starcraft 2 would be my next stop.
vVv Killzmane: Do you play any other games, casually?
vVv Titan: Hell yes. CS:S, ALIEN SWARM, TF2, L4D 1&2, and Starjewel.
vVv Killzmane: So, for those who may not know, what is the game you choose to play competitively, StarCraft 2, all about?
vVv Titan: Starcraft 2 is a RTS game that revolves around the balance of three catagories: Tech, Economy, and Army. True mastery of this game comes to deciding which of these three things to invest in at the correct times. Due to the various choices and timings, Starcraft is an ever evolving game. The most accurate way to correlate it to another game would be to call it Speed Chess... on crack.
vVv Killzmane: You play Zerg in StarCraft 2, tell us a little bit about the decision to play that race as opposed to one of the other two races?
vVv Titan: Okay, so I have been watching SC2 since the beta and knew how to play before I bought my beta key. Deep down I always wanted to play terran, but the warp-in mechanic for Protoss drew me in. After about a month, I switched to terran and ended up playing them the rest of the beta. Sadly, the game was too easy and I couldn't accept the lack of challenge to the race. Soooooooooo, being the underdog type player that I am, I switched to zerg because it was seen as the weakest and most incomplete race. I enjoy destroying others with less of an advantage.
vVv Killzmane: According to most professional StarCraft 2 players, it is counter-productive to play Random, what is your opinion on this?
vVv Titan: To answer this question I am going to use a musical example. Suppose, you are a woodwind player and perform all your works on the clarinet. However, due to your desire to play in jazz band you not only have play the saxaphone, but the flute also! Although your mastery on the saxaphone and flute are nowhere near the clarinet, it does not hinder your performance because each instrument has a certain mechanic to allow superior performance. So, as an answer to this question, yes and no. The ability to know more about a different race and less about your main is just as beneficial as knowing only one race and nothing of the others.
vVv Killzmane: You most recently competed at MLG Raleigh, an international LAN tournament, how do you think this competition went for you compared to maybe a recent LAN tournament, or even an online tournament?
vVv Titan: MLG Raleigh was a disappointment for me, as I only made it to LB6. If I had won my game, I would have been at least top 44. Going into this event, I had been taking games off various pros such as Demuslim, Idra, and various others. Overall, I really expect to perform at a much higher level than my previous showing. Sadly, I returned to the same plateau as before.
vVv Killzmane: How did you prepare for this tournament, and how do you think you could’ve prepared better?
vVv Titan: I prepared for this tournament by solidifying my mechanics and going through each strategy currently in the meta-game. I honestly feel I have a sound understanding of each match-up once it progresses past the early game. But as it goes, cheese is extremely tough to deal with in SC2 when it is least expected. I will be changing how I practice in efforts to cover this weakness.
vVv Killzmane: In your opinion, what are your three best placements/competitions whether it be online or at a LAN tournament?
vVv Titan: I am not proud of any of my accomplishments.
vVv Killzmane: What are your plans for the rest of your competitive career?
vVv Titan: Everything is up in the air at the moment. I plan on continuing to pursue Starcraft until I find a peak in my performance. Once this is reached, I will assess myself and decide if I can maintain my form, performance, and competitive edge against the competition. So yeah, it could be a year, two, three, who knows. Everything comes down to performance.
vVv Killzmane: Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. Are there any final statements you’d like to make, or shout outs you’d like to give?
vVv Titan: I love my vVv family and want to thank you all for the wonderful times we have had together! Shoutouts to Roar, Relent, Chibies, oh my god, spell it wrong, don’t kill me, Doomhammah, Dway, Sugarbear, and the ever so sexy MileyCyrus.
