    • Twitch Caster Opportunity for Rocket League!   10/04/2015

       Wanted: Rocket League Twitch Caster   vVv Gaming is looking for a streamer who wants to turn our biweekly Rocket League tournaments into a premier event.  Your role as a caster would be to stream the events on our vVv Twitch channel and commentate on plays in the game.  There are 4-6 Rounds in each tournament and you would be casting one game out of each round.  This is a volunteer position.   What we are looking for: - Available Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 9pm EST to about midnight - 720p 60 FPS video - Ability to work in a team environment - Ability to interact with an audience - Willingness to stream from our official channel.   What we consider a bonus: - Familiarity with video editing and editing software - Previous streaming experience (specifically shoutcasting) - Familiar with Rocket League eSports scene - Know how to setup and use twitchalerts.com or similar system   These tournaments provide a chance for amatuer Rocket League players to connect with and play against others to learn key elements to the game and the importance of teamwork. The point of the stream would be to highlight great plays from teams and to recognize new and upcoming talent.
      For the specifics of the event, refer to our guide on the Community Tournaments here.   If you are interested in the opportunity, please send me a private message via these forums!

    Really sucks for him since accidents happen, but if Twitch lets this go that will look bad on them
  2. Astroorion added a post in a topic Attendence List for vVv   

    WOOHOO! I'm attending, was going to compete, but something worked out for me and I get to go as an SC2 Ref. Hope to see you guys there!

    Woohoo! You finally made it! Worked with Miserie on a few different things and I'm glad to see her here!

    Personally, even though I don't play Call of Duty professionally, if you are able to gain an advantage because you have a coach/extra player on a team whereas the other team might not have one, something is wrong. So I definitely thing it's good that you will be able to disable this feature and that it should, hopefully, even the playing field for both teams.

    Going as a competitor this time, so excited!
  7. Astroorion added a post in a topic Hotel locations?   

    MLG just released the hotel info for Raleigh, and it's the hotel that I was mentioning. I would suggest that you call to make a reservation and mention that you are with MLG

    Congrats guys! Very entertaining games to watch, are there VODs anywhere?
  9. Astroorion added a post in a topic Hotel locations?   

    I know that MLG hasn't put out their hotel specials yet, but usually this one is on the list. The Mariott is right across the street from the convention center, and would save in travel costs from hotel to venue, or hotel out to eat because I know a few good places around the hotel that I could show you guys
