      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.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops     We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming.  
      Stack-Up's Mission   "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside.  They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies.  It isn't just about having fun either!  Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief!

  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!
