      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.

      vVv Gaming Presents: ADL Season 10!   08/12/2016

      TL;DR: Season 10 of the vVv Gaming LoL ADL begins Friday, August 19th @9pm EST/6pm PST! Discord Info              Just be on Discord at the check in time and have a level 30 with at least 16 champions to participate! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ vVv Gaming has had a long history in competitive e-sports; and, while the LCS may be a long way off for the organization, we can still participate in semi-competitive LoL activities as a community. The ADL has, and will continue to be, our main way to achieve this. However, let’s be honest, the ADL has had a rough time over the past few seasons. This comes from both participant enjoyment, as well as coordination and structuring of the event as a whole. While I do not plan on completely fixing the system from the start, I do believe that there are some short (and long) term changes that can make the experience better for everyone: ·         We are keeping participation points for this season, as well as the Elo ranking system used for previous seasons. ·         We will have people recruiting more in the game from the community, and attempt to bring more LoL community members to the discord that we feel would be good for the vVv community. ·         We will be implementing new rules for the drafting phase. Some of these rules will be introduced as the season progresses and are covered below. ·         Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is no information regarding a prize. If a viable prize method/opportunity comes about in the future, current season winners will be rewarded retroactively. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rules and Details (Read if new):          Nights will consist of two matches per night. You must be able to attend both games (Don’t be that guy, play it out).          Be on Discord NO LATER than 8:55pm EST/5:55pm PST for Check In. This will be slowly changed to 8:45pm EST as the season progresses. We want the drafting phase this season to be as smooth as possible.  We want to give people time to announce their roles before hand.           Check in will happen in the ADL Check In Discord Channel BEFORE players move to the regular ADL channel, and at 9:00pm EST people will move to channels matching their Dynamic Queue rank. Missing the check-in deadline means that you will not be able to participate that night and will not receive a participation point.          During the Check In, participants will announce their top 3 preferred roles for a staff member to place in a spreadsheet (Discord does not allow for your descriptions to be changed, that I am aware of).          Have a level 30 account, at least 16 champions, and be ready to have some fun!          Additional Questions? Contact vVv Eternal or vVv Yui        The ADL will last for 10 weeks this season, there will then be a three-week break before the next season starts (Currently scheduled for Nov. 11, 2016).        Cheating or Smurfing in the ADL is not permitted. Anyone caught doing either of these this will be suspended from the ADL, no exceptions. Cheating will result in a permanent suspension, smurfing will result in a 5-week suspension.  New Drafting Process: So, in previous seasons of the ADL, the highest ranked players were given the priority in being team captains for any given night. While this was not a bad system, it did leave some players feeling left out over the course of the season. That being said: ·         Highest ranked players will no longer be automatically chosen as the team captain. ·         Team captains will be chosen by the number of participation points that a player has (you earn 1 point for each night you attend, REGARDLESS of whether or not you are picked). ·         No player can be captain more than once every 4 weeks (depending on overall participation). ·         The first weekend will have captains from an arbitrary division and lower. So here is my logic (bear with me). With some outlying cases, most of the team captains would pick from highest available skill in a role down, until all of the top players (and a few peoples friends) were picked. I don’t expect this to change at all; however, this allows for both new and lower skill level players and community members, as well as frequent participants, to always have a shot at playing. They also get the benefit of knowing (eventually) in advance that they will be captains. Additional Information: I would like to try and address the speed of the drafting process. For now, the primary way of doing this will be the check-in time; however, if another feasible method is suggested, any changes will be updated in this section. After the Games: ·         Players will join the winning team's discord channel, and all players will be given feedback if they desire it. ·         Players may also provide criticism and suggestions for the ADL. (We are still seeking to improve the event if the community desires it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More Darn Rules ·         Teams will still be matched by alphabetical order of Discord channel for the time being. ·         The winner of the first match will play the winner of the second (both matches are played out simultaneously), and the same goes for the losing teams. ·         The higher team alphabetically will be chosen to be on the blue side for the first game, and the lower team will get blue side when the second game is played. Leaving/AFK: If someone leaves a game for any reason and does not reconnect, they will be given a 2-night suspension from the ADL. The player may appeal the suspension with an ADL Staff member if there was a legitimate reason for the disconnect. However, all appeals must happen at least 24 hours before the next ADL event. You also may only appeal a disconnect once per season. Pausing: Players may pause the game for UP TO 10 minutes if a player on their team is having connection issues. PLAYERS MUST INFORM AN ADL STAFF MEMBER IF A GAME IS PAUSED. If the reason cannot be resolved in 10 minutes, the team whose player disconnected will concede the match. If the enemy team agrees, they may also use their 10-minute pause to give the other team more time. Teams only get two pauses per game. Replacement Players: Player replacement will be handled the same as in previous seasons. A player may be replaced by another player of the same rank or lower, provided both teams agree to the replacement. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So that’s it folks.  Thank you for sticking through the whole announcement, we understand it is somewhat lengthy, however the information had to be provided.  You are now ready for the 10th season of the ADL! If you have any questions feel free to contact vVv Eternal     See you on Friday, August 19th at 8:55pm EST/6:00pm PST!     ADL Staff: vVv Eternal   To join the discussion click here!

      Changes to Community Game Nights   09/13/2016

      Thank you to everyone who participated in week’s survey.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants the previous week, staff availability, and looking at conflicts with other tournaments, we have decided to make changes to our Wednesday Night Tournaments.  Moving forward, as of Thursday, September 22nd, team tournaments will be hosted on Thursdays as opposed to Wednesdays. We hope with the new schedule, the overall participation will improve, as there will be fewer conflicts between tournaments being hosted.   If you have any further feedback, please leave us a comment in the following thread:  http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/topic/72439-supersonic-series-feedback-thread/

  1. Definitely! Best friends 5evar. <3
  2. I've met so many amazing people within this organization, but it's time for me to move on. I've lost my passion to remain a member, and once that's gone, there's not much I can do. I tried waiting around to see if it would come back, but I feel like I no longer have a place here nor do I have the drive anymore to figure out what I can do to add value. I've been inactive for a pretty long time and don't want to appear that I'm only sticking around to keep my v's. That'd be silly. It's been fun, and it's been educational. Take care everyone. xoxo
  3. Holy. Shit. Count me in.
  4. Well done, B Easy. Fatal.. great answers. It was a pleasure to meet you in Columbus.

  7. I was also a CoD member when it was dropped, along with you and Bizkit and a few others. It sucked, I left vVv, and said a lot of things I regret about vVv and the people in it. I don't want anyone else to have that same regret.
  8. I got through about 4 pages of this thread before I wanted to pull my hair out. * I'm red (obviously). * I've had mod powers and access to admin threads for months now, and have been invited into staff discussions on mumble & in pm's before. * I attended Columbus. These statements don't mean I'm bitter or that I'm complaining, because I completely agree with this new process and happily support it. I'll explain why, and mabye this could provoke some of you to stop and think for a second that maybe even though this feels insulting to some of you, it's not a personal attack. This is something that will greatly improve our community if only it would be given a chance by the stubborn few. I'll also be honest and say that I'm not a competitive gamer. Not anymore, at least. I moved to LoL simply because I'm incredibly burned out on CoD after playing competitively for around 7 years. It's just not fun for me anymore, and when something isn't even fun to do, why bother? My problem on LoL is that I know there's only a slim chance that I'll ever make it to Plat... plain and simple. And that's the requirement for me to get out of my 'red' status in the LoL community. Very clear-cut, very defined. I simply don't have the time or dedication to LoL in order to make it to that status. I'm in complete understanding of my status as a community gamer. Why stick with this game anyways? Because I'm terrible at it but still have fun playing it. I play it for the enjoyement of the game and community itself. Why am I in vVv and not interested in being a competitive gamer? Because that's not my path, AND THAT'S OKAY. Competitive gaming is not the only road to take in the gaming world. There are writers, artists, marketing professionals... the possibilities are endless. I'm in vVv because I feel that I can practice virtually any skill here and gain valuable experience from fellow members and staff. I like to think outside the box. The world isn't over for me if I never compete at a high level and it shouldn't feel that way for any of you, either. I attended MLG Columbus, and was aware of the coming changes as they were discussed with everyone, not just those who were being moved to staff or elite. We were all asked to give our honest opinions, and we did. Did they have to do this? Absolutely not. The ones who are staff or elite are not your enemies. They are your mentors. Take advantage of what they can teach you, but be ready to accept the fact that you might not be as skilled as you think, or that you may not always be right. We all get a little blinded by our own ego from time to time. Let that go and aspire to be something greater and to contribute to something greater than yourself. So much confusion is apparent among community members, with noone receiving the answers they want. Staff is trying to explain to you that all of the answers aren't there yet. Be understanding that this is a massive transition for vVv and that nothing great can usually be accomplished in one day. I think that to many of the community gamers, this is a slap in the face & could potentially create hostility amongst community and elite members. There are hurt feelings and bruised egos. And maybe there are some members who deserved more than a community member spot. I will admit that I am not one of those. I'm okay with saying that I haven't put in enough work or time to deserve something better, yet. I'm still finding my place, but I have faith in this community and in myself. Think of it in these terms... Pre-Columbus vVv = Regardless of color... community member. Or on the pro team. Post-Columbus vVv = You've been given the gift of not having to be one or the other. You get the chance to prove yourself and to stand out. Work for it. And when you become green? Help those who were once in your spot. Be the mentor that staff and elite members are trying to be to you right now. Trust them. Trust the community that many of you worked hard to become a part of. WE ARE WHAT WE MAKE IT TO BE.

  14. 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? I'm 19. 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. Follow us on twitter, like our group on facebook and join in the fun on our mumble channel!
