Nyx added a topic in InterviewsNovember Community Spotlight: vVv Tahvvy
It's November! That means it's time to celebrate the wonders of a cooked bird, what we're thankful for, and one of our very own... vVv Tahvvy! Read on to find out why this friendly graphics artist and Call of Duty community member is sure to bring a smile to your face, as well as spur a sudden craving for peanut butter.
Tell us your name.
Christopher "Tahvvy" Ferri.
How old are you, Christopher?
Where are you from? Where do you wish you were from?
New Jersey, and there's no other place I'd rather be.
What's your occupation?
I'm a freelance graphic designer.
What inspired you to join vVv Gaming and how long have you been a member?
I've been a member for about half a year now, since joining mid-June 2013.
Of the Five Pillars of vVv Gaming, which one speaks to you the most? Why?
Value. I love seeing people trying to help out others & it makes me happy to do the same.
Our community has always prided itself on the diversity of its members. What's something that you feel is unique about yourself?
I'm quite friendly and I tend to crack a lot of jokes. I just like to see people smile. Your happiness is my happiness.
Who, within our community, do you look up to the most?
I look up to vVv Buzz. He has helped me out so much since I was an applicant for vVv. My swag level has been raised to 8,999. He also helps me out with how I design graphics every now and then. Outside of the community, not many people choose to help me out, so when he does, I feel very thankful.
Outside of gaming, what do you like to do for fun?
I enjoy music, graphic design, dancing (alone and out of sight), singing, baseball, basketball & eating peanut butter.
What, in your opinion, has been the most underrated video game of 2013? Which has been the most overrated? Why?
To me, the most underrated has been Ascend: Hand of Kul. It's a really fun game that has a companion app similar to the Call of Duty app for Ghosts. It's a game where you have to keep an eye on your in-game currency or you might break your armor or weapon.
As for what I feel has been an overrated game, I would have to go with Call of Duty: Ghosts. It's a pretty fun game, but after being announced as the official Call of Duty title for MLG this season, it seems that it hasn't made any progress in supporting it. I believe this title can still change to be a good game, to not only play casually and to spectate, but also on a competitive level.
Which professional gaming teams have you looked up to in the past? For which games?
I didn't take much interest in competitive gaming until the Call of Duty Championships in 2013, which is about the time I applied to become a member of vVv. I now watch events online and I'm wanting to go to one soon. During the CoD Champs, I was quite surprised about Fariko Impact because I had never even heard of them and they ended up winning the whole thing.
Black Ops 2 or Ghosts? Why?
As of right now, Black Ops 2. The competitive aspect of the game has been really fun to play and to watch. The only part I've hated is how much a good or bad connection can affect the game for online play. With Ghosts, I get bored after a while when playing alone, which didn't really happen when grinding solo league play on Black Ops 2.
How has being a part of vVv Gaming affected your every day life?
My graphic work has improved. Most of my nights and early morning consist of me either doing a request or trying to learn new techniques with Photoshop. All of my selfies now include my Siberia v2 headset.
This month is about giving thanks. What are you thankful for?
I'm thankful for my dad. Even since my mom left he's kept his cool in the eyes of others & he's the most responsible person I know. He's probably the only one who can be better with numbers than I am. It also makes me feel good that I'm usually the only one able to correctly answer his random logic questions.
What does the fox say?
"There's a song about my species, have sex with me pls."
What would you do with a lifetime supply of peanut butter?
Make suits for everyone & host a peanut butter party.
Is there anyone you'd like to give a shoutout to?
I'd like to give a shoutout to my main girl, vVv Medusa, for having such beautiful red hair and for hosting the most fun Community Game Night lobbies during her time as a vVv Call of Duty community staff member.
vVv Buzz, for being like a best friend to me.
Bombhor, for still using my overlay I designed for her streams.
vVv Tak, for giving me this amazing Steelseries Siberia v2 headset.
vVv Jiggy, for playing League of Legends with me, even though I'm so bad at it.
vVv Zodyak, for gifting me with Counter Strike: Global Offensive, which I probably won't play again until I get a better build for PC gaming.
