    • Join us for the new SWTOR Expansion!   10/27/2015

      Does doing the right thing always excite you? Do you follow the path of truth and righteousness despite how hard it can be sometimes? Do you love Jawas and think Ewoks are adorable? No? NEITHER DO WE! As the guild that invented the dark side before George Lucas even thought of it, vVv Gaming is looking for other fun, sociable gamers to join us in our never-ending quest to exterminate everything cute, cuddly, and Jedi.

      While we are newly coming back to SWTOR, we have had multiple top guilds across many MMOs including Rift, Aion, and Warhammer Online. In addition to SWTOR, we support a number of other titles including League of Legends, Rocket League, Heroes of the Storm and Guild Wars 2.


      With our own TeamSpeak server that we purchased to justify drinking alone, we offer a space for all of our members, applicants, and guests to come join us and enjoy each others' company while also enjoying the game. We also have a website and forums that allows everyone to stay connected regardless how bad your sleep schedule gets. 

      Join us! We have alcohol...

      If you're interested in joining, we have no skill or experience requirements, but we do ask that you bring your personality, charm, and interest in getting to know your fellow gamers. We aren't going to tell you to be mature or any of that bullshiz, because we're too busy having fun. Oh, and you'll probably want to be on The Harbinger server, since that's where we play. 

      To join us, log onto our TeamSpeak server at ts65.gameservers.com:9222 and find one of our officers (usually in the SWTOR Channel) and ask for an invite. If you like us and want to be a part of something truly despicable, feel free to fill out an application on our forums

  1. So, not trying to be a dick or anything ... but ...   First off, HTML/CSS aren't programming languages, and the time it takes to become an "expert" in designing web-based shit is 100x easier than learning a programming language.  When you deal with HTML and CSS, you only need to worry about what looks good, and compatibility with other devices/browsers.  There is much more than this when you get into programming.     Next, I went to a school that had a pretty big game development program and I can safety tell you that it is EXTREMELY competitive, and the unemployment rate after college is quite high, so you need to be REALLY good, and have a great portfolio.  However, if you are young and don't need a job to pay bills, then fuck it why not?   From what I heard at school, most people in the game programming degree started off with Python then went from there.  I personally know when you get the hang of one language, most others will come pretty easily to you (except weird shit like Perl, which is like looking at fucking Chinese).   One of the requirements for graduating from my school is that you had to create something "innovative" (I know, stupid, right?).  I decided to write a program in Ruby for network security related stuff.  The thing is, at the time, I was pretty shit at programming, and didn't know how to even output "Hello World!" in the language.  Being the lazy shit I am, I waited until about a week before we needed a "prototype" to present.  I stayed up for about 48 hours straight an wrote a good portion of the module I wanted to create without knowing shit about Ruby.  All I did was pretty much just come up with a basic written out English-written program, and looked up the best ways to actually do it.  For instance:   If you wanted to do the following in something like PHP (just because PHP is easy as fuck):   variable x equals 4 if variable x equals 3 then output "3 is the answer" if variable x does not equal 3 then output "the answer is not 3"   This is obviously in not a language, but you can look up every step, to get the following: $x=4; if ($x==3) { echo "3 is the answer"; } else { echo "the answer is not 3"; }   Basically what I am saying in a way too long of a post is fucking just dive in, come up with a plan, then look up and study how to do it.  For me, books were useless and the content taught in them you would forget or need to reference anyways.  I initially got into Python by downloading a module for a tool I was using and pretty much altered everything about it, through doing that, you learn quite a bit.  Reading everything in CodeAcademy or your favorite language reference site is a waste of time, because you will never retain all of the information you need, and you will eventually end up just needing to go back anyways to reference it again.     If your interested in Python, I googled something quick and got: https://wiki.python.org/moin/SimplePrograms Go find a program in there that strikes your fancy, and change the shit out of it.  When you actually get some languages under your belt, join an open source project, you will get great experience, contacts, and a place to build your portfolio.

    Very nice, in my honest opinion you went a little overboard.  But hell, if you were going to build a ridiculously nice PC, you did it right.
  9. CSGO Steam IDs [Compiled]

  10. Anyone for CS:GO?

    Welcome!  If you haven't yet, there is a vVv Gaming group on Steam that you should check out.
  11. I'm back. Whatevs.

  12. Why do you game?

    About 3 years ago, because friends played them, they were fun, they were competitive .... all at the same time.     Now, because it's relaxing and a nice change after dealing with people in stress all day (which is also interesting and fun, but in a different way).   I could be a little out of my mind, but....   I think we were a little spoiled with the popularity of LoL.  We were able to run huge events that a TON of people would attend, with League becoming stagnant and dying out a little bit, I feel (maybe you will feel the same) that vVv sometimes feels a little "dead".  I think we really need to focus on a game.  Throw all marbles at it.  For instance, before LoL, it was Starcraft.  We had streamed games against pro teams every Wednesday, although some people didn't play the game, I feel like almost everyone showed up to at least watch our players.  Before that, Gears of War and Halo were big.  I was kind of new at the time and didn't play the games, but I remember a sort of hype around those games.  And of course Call of Duty, which is the game that has always been there.   With a lot of vVv people being less active in LoL, I think we should be making the next step before the popularity shift does it for us and we end up being behind the curve.  PC gaming is the thing.  I mean, I'm really not trying to be biased, but CSGO is booming, I think we need to put more effort into it before people realize the potential it already has.
  13. Introducing myself

    19 years young?  Don't only people over the age of 70 say that?       For the Call of Duty applications, once you put in an application, it is reviewed by community members and the division manager.  IF they believe you are a good fit for vVv Gaming, you will be put into an interview where the more upper-management type people will meet you and gauge you as a potential vVv member.  Applications typically take around 3 months, unless you show you are a strong fit for vVv, in which case they would take less time.   What LAN did you compete in?  Any prominent teams?
