      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/

  1. yah, to early .. should have coffee before I post
  2. was I overlooked? we did have the required chat
  3. Group size is fine, 5 people doing Underground or other PVE activities with the right group setup works. PVP (DZ) is fun as well with 5. Have played the game since release solo and with groups, the major issue with the game (for me) is the exploits and bugs that go unresolved as they add new content.
  4. ICK! No Chop Chop for me please I visit forums regularly even voted for Discord Have not had a chance to play any game since late May / early June due to personal issues
  5. Right now Monday / Wednesday / Friday .. weekends are sporadic at best with soccer tournaments and games.
  6. Wish this was on another set of nights Coach Soccer Tuesday and Thursday. Add me (DarkDante#1839), usually play after 7PM PT
  7. Checkout Tech N9ne and others on the StrangeMusic label.
  8. Bit of rocky start, was unable to get in game until around 4:30PT. Played a few rounds, felt laggy at times. Hopefully things stabilize
  9. Good Luck! My daughter is going to Fairfield University next year for Nursing
  10. State of Game 12/05/2016 NO CHANGES THIS WEEK Weapon Talent Balance/Tweaking (won't land in 1.2) 1.2 Changes confirmed (some at least) Sentry Bug fixed in 1.2 (occurs when you get close to a player that has applied the sentry "mark" to you previously) Same as gas grenade bug NB. this isnt the only bug thats occuring with Sentry's.... Brutal - currently is multiplicative (changing to additive instead) Balanced - works on first bullet only after shouldering Sentry 4 set piece being tweaked (will only work with Semi-automatic weapons eg Pistol/Shotgun/Marksman Rifle) Set pieces (bonuses) will work with "Specific Weapons" where applicable New set pieces coming in 1.2 Reckless chest fixed Talent stacking fixed in 1.2 (so still works in current game) Performance Gear Mods being buffed New stat - Toughness in 1.2 will be bundled stat that combines Armour/Stamina Armor cap increased to 75% (so using 4560/65*75=5262aprx) Phoenix Credits - double cap - 2k Hinted 1.2 arriving next week on a couple of occasions.....
  11. Was able to play a few hours Friday evening, was fun had a good time. I pre-ordered so looks like I'll be playing at launch boy do I need practice, so many heros I suck at *lol*
  12. COD4 is by far the best of the COD series, can't wait to see the remastered version.
  13. Looks like Massive is taking a stand against hackers.
  14. Yes, they pushed a server side hot fix but two talents can still be exploited. Right now I am reducing my gear score to sub 161 and enjoying playing the sub 161 GS DZ bracket, rolled through DZ for about ~4 hours yesterday without a single hacking / exploit issue. Was the most fun I have had in the DZ since Open BETA.
  15. I would avoid doing DZ until current exploits are resolved. As it is, one can easily get over 1 million damage and one shot everything that moves. Have been very frustrated the past few days and finally decided to-do some searching and what I found is disgusting! Have seen a video were a player enters Challenge Mode Incursion and proceeds to ONE SHOT the APC, very very sad times for this game.
