      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!  
      Donation Page

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

      Please come to watch and show your support!

  1. Ive been thinking alot and I actually agree balancing life and two communities would be too much. I'll definitely stay active on the site but I believe my place is elsewhere. Thanks guys
  2. its not that i wont be able to be active on the forums, i will be very active on the site and the forums, its that when i play competitively (which is 95% of the time) it wont be with vVv players for now because i am with a team of kids from different communities.
  3. without backing from administration i wouldnt even try to give a date, i doubt it will happen at all
  4. I agree. Very few other places do you see administration as dedicated as Jerry. And good stuff to all mentioned players. keep it up guys.
  5. thank you Matter and Medusa I appreciate all the help. and to answer your question Matter, let me start off by saying I don't think in a game like Call of Duty there ever comes a time where you have mastered it. Professionals have tons of insight, but everyone has secret little tricks that you have to learn for yourself. Therefore while Game Guru may seem like a fleeting goal, however it is a great challenge to further my abilities to the best of my extent. Some of the ways I go about gathering information on Call of Dutys: - Experimenting and trying new ideas - Using past experience from other CoDs that may or may not apply to newer versions - Watching professional streams daily - Playing with others better than myself - Reading forums (vVv, eVa) Some thought provoking threads: - Gun Tierlist (Nov 27 '12) - vVv Online Tournament? (Nov 28 '12) - K/D vs. W/L (Nov 23, '12) Post #8 - Simple Mechanics (May 9, '12) - Competitiveness, Parts I & II (which I plan to continue as I was chopped narrowly after I began these) - The Elephant in the Room (Jan 2, '12) - Thoughts on MW3 New Maps (Jan 25, '12) Posts #4,9,11,13,15,17,19,22 - BO2 Custom Classes (eVa Gaming Forum) (Nov 27, '12) Post #4 - Black Ops 2 Thoughts (eVa Gaming Forum) (Nov 29, '12) Post #12 I also just wish to voice that I am teaming with a few kids from eVa and will probably have little time to hang out with vVv members as much as I would like to. I will of course still add all the members I can and play pubs whenever I have the chance, but I just wanted everyone (who cares to know lmao) to know that is the reason behind my seemingly isolated activity. I have much to learn and a long road ahead. Have a good one, -Grimmm
  6. im sure haha, i could imagine the lengthiness of it but I am serious about doing this if i had backing from administration, but dosent look too good honestly haha
  7. haha definitely man. hmu on xbox for pubs and stuff. you play bo2? gt: vVv Grimmm
  8. I believe many people would have the same mindset haha
  9. I think we'll have to wait until after FG4 if its going to happen at all. Without a prize it has to be at a point with little to no other events within a week of it. I also want vVv approval before we do anything or say anything official, and that dosent look too good either
  10. Oohh I didn't mean like winner gets sponsorship, though that may seem good idt is economically the right choice for vVv being that a team that may not deserve such a sponsorship may have just been on a hot streak. I think if you had five tournaments and a single team placed t3 in all, THEN they might be considered for such a prize haha. I meant that vVv could get GamerGrub to throw in $x and call it the GamerGrub Cup haha you know what I mean?
  11. Even like 4 vVv T-Shirts haha, just at first until the tournament can get an actual monetary sponsor
  12. Name: Pat Brannigan Age: 17 GT's: - Xbox: vVv Grimmm, PSN: vVv_Grimmm How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom?: - I learned about vVv from watching vVv Fly Society at an MLG event in 2011. Who do you know currently in vVv Gaming? How do you know them?: - It seems as though everyone I became close with my last time around has either been chopped or moved on, but I am eager to meet the new gamers in the forums now. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming?: - After the release of the new Black Ops 2, I saw this game as having the potential to revive the competitive Call of Duty scene, and I knew just where to go to find like-minded individuals I am applying for the position of Game Guru (Call of Duty) What games coming out are you looking forward to play and why?: - I have waited a very long time for the release of BO2 because of the rumors of it being another modern warfare but I stayed hopeful it wouldnt suck too bad haha, and I am astounded by it's performance thus far. I also am enjoying Halo 4 and Assassins Creed 3. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming?: - I captain the rugby team at my high school and also play bass for a bagpipe band What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have?: - Multiple locals, 3 NJHalos Have you attended any national events (MLG, WCG, IPL)?: - No, but I hope to at some point during college. What was your best competitive moment? What was your worst?: - My best has to be on Gamebattles after facing the future semi-pro team Reality Check and having my team come together afterwards, watch film and learn from our mistakes. My worst has to be during the breakup of our team after a third straight loss and the breakdown of one of my teammates. What do you hope to achieve, competitively?: - I hope to learn all that I can about competitive Call of Duty, play competitively online or at local LANs, help organize/ ref major tournaments, and either host or appear on a casting show with my knowledge and experience.
  13. My thinking was with the weight of the name vVv in the title of the tournament, and scheduled around a period of time with few other major tournaments, teams would play for the fact that winning the vVv Cup (first thing that came to mind haha) would pull enough weight to be incentive to play in it. And only after a good showing with alot of coverage maybe a potential sponsor could be brought in to bring more incentive into the tournament. Another option to counteract the lack of prizes is having an entry fee. this would also keep away inexperienced teams that would not be willing to pay to enter. I think if ran correctly and covered properly we could really pull off a big showing. Just a thought, just my opinion.
  14. moved the AN-94 up 1 and Chicom down 1
  15. I havent had as much experience with the M27 so ill check it out, but the PDW is getting alot of playtime with pros and once you get used to it you see why its pretty ridiculous. while the fire rate isnt there, its power with accuracy puts down people with very good range. great obj gun
