      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!

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

      Please come to watch and show your support!

  1. Maybe they're still reeling from the stinking failure that is Fiora?
  2. Careful Anax, I played a solo queue game last night and won. Either it was a fluke or your luck is about to run out for a while...
  3. I play until I get bored... I dunno, I'm not one of those players that chain queues on any kind of streak. I hardly play more than 2 or 3 games in a single session (solo queue that is) without breaking it with something else. Ranked 5s is a different matter and I'm more interested in running many games in a row. Just remember, Elo is only a number. Don't let it define you.
  4. Not exactly. I had an olaf go 5-0 in lane, but when it got down to the late game, he couldn't reach their AD carry to do damage. I guess things may have fared differently had he simply joined us in pounding their bruisers. One of the things i've noticed when playing against Janna is you sometimes have to let their AD carry just pummel you, and just try to nuke their meat before she does too much damage (let your tankiest person be closest to her), because going for them is a suicide mission and you won't get anything done.
  5. If I lose 2 or 3 games in a row, I usually stop playing ranked for the day/night. Some days (or even weeks) the queue gods are just not on your side.
  6. He's actually back at 2230. Silsol is a very high risk, high reward player (doesn't take flash ever, notice his summoners are always heal ignite). He also tilts a lot, hence the humongous losing streaks. That's the danger of just chain queuing - losing streaks extend because you are already losing, and your mentality changes (even if you don't perceive it), and you will play worse.
  7. People are flipping out about the mana restore, but it's only 30, guys. 30 mana isn't that much. That's ~10-20 seconds of passive regen, depending on what time of the game it is and your runes/items.
  8. If you're going to make a tier list like this you need to submit your reasoning for placing each champion at its place in the ladder. What makes them strong, is it their ability to farm, live in teamfights, scale well, scale badly? You're turning such an intensely multi-dimensional problem into a flat one without any rhyme or reason. The real story? Most of the ADs are equally strong when played correctly.
  9. Olaf was simply weak because he's easily countered by champions who can kite him (the same pitfall of Udyr). Pick Janna against either of these and watch them flail helplessly around as they get slowed, knocked up, and knocked back away from the people they're supposed to do damage to. (they have no instant gap closers)
  10. He doesn't write anything particularly groundbreaking in this post. It's always been the same. Also, make sure that you don't fall into the pitfalls of riding an OP champ up the Elo ladder, because when he/she gets nerfed, you may just as quickly fall back down. The best advice to gaining Elo: simply get better at the game. Play more, and instead of watching everyone else make mistakes, focus on YOUR GAME and YOUR MISTAKES. Reflect and improve.
  11. People at most levels of play have a large ego and do not wish to put themselves in the passenger seat and let his teammates drive the van to victory. To be fair, they have a point: support has a smaller impact on the game's outcome and is easier to do at a low level (sit back, heal, babysit). Players would rather play a different role that they could perhaps hard carry their team with.
  12. He is also a 2k+ player and plays some of the meanest AP mid out there.
  13. I'm a 2k elo player and I've been playing with the team for a little over a month now. We haven't won anything yet, but have placed 3rd twice and 2nd once in the last few go4lol tournaments.
  14. Nope. It's Venusaur.
  15. Teemo's short range and limited sustainability make him vulnerable to many of the top champions that can close gaps easily, such as renekton and irelia. He will also cause you problems later game, especially if you don't have a bruiser in the jungle, because he's just another squishy ranged champion in teamfights (if you don't build him with frozen mallet). His mushrooms aren't infallable, either: you can still gank him through the lane, with global ults (TF, nocturne). He's a slot champion that generally does well against singed, but he's been nerfed a number of times and quite simply isn't the dominant force he used to be. Anyone claiming to know the 'strongest champ in x lane' simply doesn't understand how to counter champions, because no champion will be the best in all situations. You have to consider your team, their team, your lane, and your confidence playing said champion goes a long way in making them a strong champion to play. Simply find a champion you like to play and get really good at him, and you'll win most of the lanes unless you hit someone who's also really good with someone who counters you.
