    • LoL ADL Season 7 Begins October 16th!   10/05/2015

      It's that time again, boys and girls! We're proud to announce the Amateur Draft League is returning for its Seventh Season! Since dropping Tuesdays worked well last season, we will continue to be playing every Sunday and Friday at 9pm EST (6pm PST) starting on October 16th and continuing until December 13th. Even though the ADL falls on days that the LoL World Championship is taking place, we will STILL be playing! World Championship games start anywhere between 5-7am EST so we will have plenty of time between then and the beginning of the draft :} Be aware that we moved from Mumble to TeamSpeak! Our Server Information is down below along with a guide on how to set it up.

      Last season, we also removed MVP voting, introduced our new Champion and Challenger Tiers, and also randomized Captain selection within the same relative rank to make picking a little more fair for the captains who were closer in Solo Q rank. All of you who regularly play in the ADL were super happy about those changes so they'll be around to stay! Since there was no demand for an ADL All-Star match, we didn't have one, but that doesn't mean we can't have one at the end of this season! Just be sure to let us know you want it and we'll make it happen.      Significant Dates: 10/16/2015 - Start of Season 7 11/13/2015 - Week 5 of Season 7 (Champion Tier and Challenger Tier begin) 12/6/2015 - Last night of the regular season 12/13/2015 - Finals Mini-Tournament (Must attend to qualify for Top 4 finish) Quick Info: TeamSpeak info: TeamSpeak Server: ts65.gameservers.com:9222 How to set up TeamSpeak ADL ELO Lookup: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/adl-look-up Start Time: 9 PM EST/6 PM PST Sundays and Fridays Holidays: The Friday after Thanksgiving there will be no ADL (11/27/2015)      
      Changes based on your suggestions:   This isn't a change that only we can do, but we got some feedback where you guys wished there were more people to play with/against. Even though our debut first nights are the most attended, we get a very stable 30 or so people per night, and they're the same people who attend every night. If you would like to learn how to get more people involved in attending the ADL, make sure you read this guide on how to bring in more people! Everyone needs to pitch in on this effort, it's not something that we as Staff have ultimate power over. Also, don't forget to bring your friends!Also on the topic of recruitment, if you guys are interested in bringing more players let us know if you'd be willing to participate in recruiting nights where we would get together on TeamSpeak and try to bring new players onto the server to get to know us and join us for ADL :3Season 6 was a HUGE success in the fact that multiple people stated that the event was organized and run better than other events they've been to. We're very proud of this! If you see something you would like to see changed, be sure to hit up one of the Staff members! We specifically ask for feedback after every night, so there are plenty of opportunities to speak up!As always, we MAY make changes during the ADL Season. This only happens if there is enough negative feedback about a certain aspect where it warrants an immediate change, or if it's something we want to test out (ie: a better pick order, a better way to determine who faces who, how we draft, etc). We will always ask for everyone's opinion beforehand. If any changes are made during the Season, players will be informed of said changes before drafting begins.For this next season, we want to focus on providing more opportunities for getting to know your fellow LoL players. One of the things we've learned that could benefit from an organized play environment is that higher level players have trouble finding teammates who share their motivation and goals. By providing a more relaxed environment people can come to after each night's games are finished, we can offer moments for people to connect outside of simple game comms so that you can actually get to know each other and not just how you are in-game. We've made a couple nice visual guides that hopefully explain the season format and how to participate much easier for new players.Always be sure to give vVv Organicbear or vVv Medusa any feedback you have! We can always make things better or easier, we just need to be informed that something needs changing! A link to our profiles containing our contact information are at the bottom of this post. Feel free to contact us in any way that is most convenient for you (including chatting on TeamSpeak).         How to Participate: NOTE: Anyone can play, regardless of Solo Q rank, as long as you're Level 30 and have at least 16 champions to participate in Custom Tournament Draft.   Season Format:      Official ADL Rules:   Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the rules! You are expected to know the rules before you join TeamSpeak and participate!!!  
      Are you as excited for Season 7 as we are? Let's make this another fantastic ADL! See you in TeamSpeak on Friday, October 16th at 9pm EST!
      If you have questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions please contact any of the below ADL Staff members and they would be happy to assist you!

    Best thing to do is wall off. As soon as you see the forge put pylons at your ramp, just stop the probes from getting up the high ground and you should be fine. The best way to counter cheese is to scout it early.
  2. SuGaR added a post in a topic How's my casting?   

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate the feedback! I'm going to keep at it to improve.

    Good stuff! I remember seeing Murder a while back on a Daily as well.

    Thanks. I appreciate it. If you wanna send me some replays to streamingsugar@gmail.com I could give you some feedback while practicing casting

    How's my casting?
    So I started casting SC2 casually about 4 days ago when someone asked me to cast a game on stream. I really like casting and it's now something I hope to improve on.
    So here's a video of Game 1 of a gold league match I casted yesterday.

    Tell me how I'm doing!
    What did I do right?
    What can I improve on?

    Clarity (in speaking and in trying to convey thoughts), observer functions (camera, tabs, etc), explaining strategies, "uhhh, umm, uhhh", etc.

    Finally got around to playing the beta. I recorded my playthrough and have been uploading to YouTube parts 1-4 of 5 are up now!

    Wow! Looks awesome!

    You may be in the beta!
    Everyone! Go check your Battle.net accounts!


    I was randomly checking mine to get my Battle.net profile link for StarCraft 2 when I saw I had an active D3 beta account. I never got an email or anything, but I'm not the only person to have this happen.

    Downloading now! So excited!!!!


    UPDATE: I got an email at 11:17 EST (about 5 hours after original post) saying I got into the beta. Maybe they're just late in sending out the emails.

    You forgot:

  10. SuGaR added a topic in Music   


    I'll leave this here...

    I'm fucking addicted to K-pop lately. I find it incredibly soothing while laddering in SC2, playing Minecraft, or playing Dota 2.

    *NOTICE* I am not responsible for any ensuing K-pop addictions that may arise within or externally of vVv.

  11. SuGaR added a post in a topic Computer (mouse) question   

    This is actually a fairly common problem when booting any computer. USB ports are active during POST and while it's not "supposed" to happen, a keyboard or mouse can cause the computer to hang on startup.

    I've had the same problems during Windows updates and even when installing a new OS.

    Just unplug and peripherals during the boot process and you should be fine.

    Good news, everyone!

    What's a Zerg and Terran?

    Protoss please!
  14. SuGaR added a post in a topic #Sc2problems   

    On lowest settings? I doubt that. My friend's shit streak of a laptop can run SC2 on low and it's baaaaad.

    I would do the previously suggested dust removal, if it's still giving you problems after that, post back here, or message me, we'll see what else it could be.
