    • LoL ADL Season 7 Begins October 16th!   10/05/2015

      It's that time again, boys and girls! We're proud to announce the Amateur Draft League is returning for its Seventh Season! Since dropping Tuesdays worked well last season, we will continue to be playing every Sunday and Friday at 9pm EST (6pm PST) starting on October 16th and continuing until December 13th. Even though the ADL falls on days that the LoL World Championship is taking place, we will STILL be playing! World Championship games start anywhere between 5-7am EST so we will have plenty of time between then and the beginning of the draft :} Be aware that we moved from Mumble to TeamSpeak! Our Server Information is down below along with a guide on how to set it up.

      Last season, we also removed MVP voting, introduced our new Champion and Challenger Tiers, and also randomized Captain selection within the same relative rank to make picking a little more fair for the captains who were closer in Solo Q rank. All of you who regularly play in the ADL were super happy about those changes so they'll be around to stay! Since there was no demand for an ADL All-Star match, we didn't have one, but that doesn't mean we can't have one at the end of this season! Just be sure to let us know you want it and we'll make it happen.      Significant Dates: 10/16/2015 - Start of Season 7 11/13/2015 - Week 5 of Season 7 (Champion Tier and Challenger Tier begin) 12/6/2015 - Last night of the regular season 12/13/2015 - Finals Mini-Tournament (Must attend to qualify for Top 4 finish) Quick Info: TeamSpeak info: TeamSpeak Server: ts65.gameservers.com:9222 How to set up TeamSpeak ADL ELO Lookup: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/adl-look-up Start Time: 9 PM EST/6 PM PST Sundays and Fridays Holidays: The Friday after Thanksgiving there will be no ADL (11/27/2015)      
      Changes based on your suggestions:   This isn't a change that only we can do, but we got some feedback where you guys wished there were more people to play with/against. Even though our debut first nights are the most attended, we get a very stable 30 or so people per night, and they're the same people who attend every night. If you would like to learn how to get more people involved in attending the ADL, make sure you read this guide on how to bring in more people! Everyone needs to pitch in on this effort, it's not something that we as Staff have ultimate power over. Also, don't forget to bring your friends!Also on the topic of recruitment, if you guys are interested in bringing more players let us know if you'd be willing to participate in recruiting nights where we would get together on TeamSpeak and try to bring new players onto the server to get to know us and join us for ADL :3Season 6 was a HUGE success in the fact that multiple people stated that the event was organized and run better than other events they've been to. We're very proud of this! If you see something you would like to see changed, be sure to hit up one of the Staff members! We specifically ask for feedback after every night, so there are plenty of opportunities to speak up!As always, we MAY make changes during the ADL Season. This only happens if there is enough negative feedback about a certain aspect where it warrants an immediate change, or if it's something we want to test out (ie: a better pick order, a better way to determine who faces who, how we draft, etc). We will always ask for everyone's opinion beforehand. If any changes are made during the Season, players will be informed of said changes before drafting begins.For this next season, we want to focus on providing more opportunities for getting to know your fellow LoL players. One of the things we've learned that could benefit from an organized play environment is that higher level players have trouble finding teammates who share their motivation and goals. By providing a more relaxed environment people can come to after each night's games are finished, we can offer moments for people to connect outside of simple game comms so that you can actually get to know each other and not just how you are in-game. We've made a couple nice visual guides that hopefully explain the season format and how to participate much easier for new players.Always be sure to give vVv Organicbear or vVv Medusa any feedback you have! We can always make things better or easier, we just need to be informed that something needs changing! A link to our profiles containing our contact information are at the bottom of this post. Feel free to contact us in any way that is most convenient for you (including chatting on TeamSpeak).         How to Participate: NOTE: Anyone can play, regardless of Solo Q rank, as long as you're Level 30 and have at least 16 champions to participate in Custom Tournament Draft.   Season Format:      Official ADL Rules:   Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the rules! You are expected to know the rules before you join TeamSpeak and participate!!!  
      Are you as excited for Season 7 as we are? Let's make this another fantastic ADL! See you in TeamSpeak on Friday, October 16th at 9pm EST!
      If you have questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions please contact any of the below ADL Staff members and they would be happy to assist you!

    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.

  3. vVv Spike added a post in a topic Anyone for CS:GO?   

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

  5. vVv Spike added a post in a topic 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.

    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?

    What was the problem?
  9. vVv Spike added a post in a topic CS:GO Draft League?   

    I would love to help get it going if needed!
  10. vVv Spike added a post in a topic Blue Screen of Death and League   

    1.  Look at your video card.  If you don't know what it is, click start and type devmgmt.msc or "device manager".  In this window, you will see your video card, it should be called something like "NVidia GTX blah blah" or "Radeon blah blah".  It may not be these, but you will be able to figure it out.  It's going to be under "Display Adapters" (I think, not looking at my device manager).
    2.  Google search the name of your video card and find driver updates.  Download them and install them.
    3.  The next thing I would do is make sure your memory (RAM) if not going bad.  There are third party tools out there that will easily test this (Google it).  If it is, you need to find the stick of RAM and either remove it or replace it.
    4.  If it still occurs, try to get the information from the bluescreen (camera?) and share it.  Another (even better) option is to get the .dmp files and upload them here.
    If you have absolutely no fucking idea what I'm talking about whatsoever, then I don't think Google will either.  Your best option is to bring your computer to someone.
  11. vVv Spike added a post in a topic Hey vVv! Just introducing myself! :D   

    I would like a story from this bat-shit crazy dad.  Also, feel free to add me on steam!

  13. vVv Spike added a post in a topic Is there something I'm missing?   

    Nope, welcome to LoL, where you could literally say anything and piss someone off.
    Actually fuck it ... if you say nothing at all you will probably piss someone off too.

    Jesus Christ I wish people would throw themselves in front of me, too!

  15. vVv Spike added a post in a topic My vVv Application!   

    This applicant is strongly interested in making videos for vVv.  I recommend posting some here or on the Xbox forums so Bizkit (or whoever) can reach out if they are good!
    Good luck on your application!
