      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

  1. Congratulations, SB and SunDown!
  2. <33 I have been on hiatus for far too long. I remember when you were applying and now you're on staff!
  3. I want to say my favorite moment came at MLG Columbus 2012 as Fighting Game Division Manager, when vVv fighting game players brought home a combined $23,000 in prize money. In actuality, that moment is runner-up to my first time meeting the rest of vVv Staff–Brock, Doom, Jerry, SugarBear, and others–at MLG Providence 2011.

  9. Newly Acquired SCV Player, vVv RTD, Battling for Over $10,000 in Prizes Be sure to tune in tonight to root for our fellow vVv Gaming Fighting Games Division competitor, vVv RTD!
  10. Of course this happens days after I place my order for a new headset. I suppose I can just use this as an excuse to purchase something else :-]
  11. That prize pool is ridiculous! Congratulations on earning the opportunity to compete for it!
  12. This is probably attributed to the fact that I rarely play RPGs, but my favorite was Lost Odyssey.
  13. vVv Gaming Begins 2012 With MLG Dominance Five years ago, the concept of vVv Gaming was in its infancy. Spawning from an idea and a passion for Gears of War, vVv Gaming was able capture a first place finish at the Meadowlands during the first Major League Gaming event of 2007. Now, during its five year anniversary, vVv exemplified the organizational motto "Entertain. Educate. Dominate." by winning big at the MLG Winter Championships in Columbus, OH this past weekend! With exciting and emotional victories, vVv Gaming was able to demonstrate why it is considered to be one of the premier competitive gaming organizations on the planet! The action began Friday night with our StarCraft 2 players, vVv Ruff, vVv Glon, and vVv DaiSuki battling through the open bracket. Newly acquired King of Fighters XIII player, vVv Romance, also started on his way through the KoF bracket by making quick work of his opponents. By the conclusion of the first day of competition, vVv Ruff and vVv Glon had each worked their way to an undefeated position in Round 4 of the Winners Bracket. vVv Romance had also posted an undefeated Friday night and would be featured in the Winners Bracket Finals when KoF play resumed on Saturday evening. vVv Romance plays CMD_DUC in the winners' semifinals match If you think Friday night was successful, the rest of the vVv Gaming competitors would argue, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" The vVv community Halo team, vVv Ability, kicked off Saturday morning with an early win over Godspeed. From there, they would turn heads and win two more matches before falling to #2 seeded UoR Carbon in Winners Bracket Round 5. Their efforts solidified a share of an impressive 17th place finish. That afternoon, vVv REO and vVv CD Jr, the most successful and accomplished Mortal Kombat 9 players in the country, began their quest for MLG fame. Each player had battled their way through pool play without a sign of weakness and acquired a spot in Sunday's Top 16. To add to vVv's fighting game success, vVv Romance placed 3rd in KoFXIII and brought home $2,400 during the exciting conclusion of King of Fighters. The performances from the first two days of competition would have been enough to put the stamp of approval on a successful MLG weekend for vVv Gaming, but we weren't done yet! When all was said and done, Championship Sunday became a story of success and emotions. Leading into Columbus, the entire Mortal Kombat community had an eye on EVO 2011 Champion, EMP Perfect Legend, who was competing in his first major tournament since defeating vVv REO in the EVO Grand Finals last July. The first match during Sunday's MK9 Top 16 pitted none other than Perfect Legend with vVv Gaming superstar, vVv CD Jr. A pre-match interview put the intensity through the roof before play even began. The tension between the two players pierced through the convention center as they stared one another down while expressing minimal approval of the other's chances in the upcoming match. The match lived up to the hype as vVv CD Jr took down Perfect Legend 3 games to none, avenging his teammate's loss during the EVO Grand Finals. CD Jr turned to the crowd following his victory with a look of confidence. That confidence would propel him all the way to Grand Finals to face familiar foe (and teammate) vVv REO. vVv CD Jr. and vVv REO square off in the GRAND FINALS of the Mortal Kombat Tournament! After this weekend, I can say without a doubt that CD Jr and REO are THE greatest Mortal Kombat players walking this earth at the current moment. The Grand Finals match was a back-and-forth, neck and neck race for the $12,000 grand prize. Due to the continuation rule, CD Jr began the series with a 3 to 1 advantage in a first to 6 final series. After a slew of close rounds and counters to stuff the opponents efforts, REO had battled from his early deficit to tie the series at 5 games a piece. The final game would come down to an ultimate, deciding round. In this final round, CD Jr would come out on top and take 1st place in Mortal Kombat's inaugural appearance on the MLG Pro Circuit. vVv CD Jr. holds his trophy up high after taking 1st! During the award ceremonies, an emotional, teary-eyed CD Jr held his trophy high and looked into the crowd. He had made it to where he wanted to be and vVv Gaming was back to where it began: at the top. Five years of success was able to shine through in that single moment. There was no better way to cap off a five year existence. vVv Gaming continues to engrave its legacy within the foundations of eSports and I can assure you that even after five years, it has only just begun. vVv Gaming placements at the 2012 Winter Championships in Columbus, OH. Please join me in congratulating our competitors on a fantastic showing in Columbus! I expect nothing less when we travel to Anaheim in early June!
  14. What an amazing event! Not only did MLG have one of their best weekends to date, but vVv Gaming had, quite possibly, the most dominant performance at a Major League Gaming event in its 5 year existence. So many things will be happening this year! I couldn't even express my excitement last night.
  15. vVv Gaming Acquires King of Fighters Player, Romance After months of dominance within the Mortal Kombat community, vVv Gaming is excited to announce the addition of top talent from another reach of the fighting game community. vVv Gaming has acquired top King of Fighters player, Raymond "Romance" Navarrete. Romance hails from Southern California, a hotbed of KoF talent, and will strengthen vVv Gaming's already impressive Fighting Game Division. Romance is considered to be one of the top tier players within the KoF community and has recent top finishes at EVO 2011 (2nd) and Final Round XV (2nd). Romance will be competing this weekend at the MLG Winter Championship in Columbus, OH in King of Fighters' first appearance at a Major League Gaming event. Be sure to tune into the stream this weekend while Romance competes for a shot at a first place finish and the $6,000 grand prize! Romance (left) with EG.Justin Wong at EVO 2011 Please join in welcoming Romance to vVv Gaming, and be sure to root for him and the rest of the vVv Gaming fight club while they compete this weekend at the MLG Winter Championship in Columbus!
