    • 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!

    I really dislike this build since it lacks a significant amount of survivability for only a mild increase in damage. It has overall too low of toughness and no life force to fall back onto in death shroud. I would recommend you try PZ Powerr's build: http://en.gw2skills.net/editor/?fQAQNAW7YjMat7haab87JAJFPfd0DiVOZKFwzOA;TsAAzCroay0koJbTumkNtqY8xuCA
  2. Nikota added a post in a topic So where did everyone go George?   

    I do not think Anvil Rock is very strong for WvW.
  3. Nikota added a post in a topic Possible November Update + DotA Playstyle?   

    Just talked to Jon Peters today, and he said they definitely are NOT doing a MOBA. They said they "tried it and didn't work out".
  4. Nikota added a post in a topic So where did everyone go George?   

    A lot of members of the guild who are focused on sPvP have moved to Anvil Rock server. This is because Anvil Rock is home to the vast majority of top sPvP teams and has a much richer community of competitive players. This change has no effects on the PvE or WvW community within the guild as the members who have transferred have no interest in said activities.

    Also, for you power build, why would you run Pistol/Shield with 0 condition damage?
  6. Nikota added a post in a topic Critique build - Grenade Roamer Engineer   

    Hair trigger would be a better option. More blinds, more conditions.

    I feel Infused Precision is a complete waste of a trait when you have Kit Refinement.
  8. Nikota added a post in a topic A Collection of sPvP Builds - All Classes   

    You mean you will "refer to" this. That is an incorrect use of "referencing".

    There aren't really random zergs in 5v5's atm, but it will increase the quality of teams (hopefully).

    And more importantly, new gear from Paid Tournament Tokens!
  11. Nikota added a post in a topic A Collection of sPvP Builds - All Classes   

    Just updated the builds. Some older builds that have been nerfed or are no longer used have been removed and have been replaced with stronger builds from the current metagame.

    We’ve relaxed our anti-exploiting system for loot and events.

    We’ve updated the camera to reduce the amount of camera smoothing currently in the game in order to lower the frequency of related bugs. We’re still looking into other camera issues, but we decided to make this quick change because it greatly improves the gameplay experience.

    [*]Fixed a rare bug in “Shards of Orr” where Herboza would not become visible.

    World versus World
    The northernmost keep in all homelands has had its collision adjusted on the inner western gate.
    Numerous items have been disabled for use in World versus World to prevent exploits and imbalances. This includes the Experimental Teleportation Gun, ettin gunk, drake eggs, seed turrets, and more.

    Big Ol’ Bomb: This skill has been updated to be a blast finisher.

    We are moving towards retaliation being more of a counter to taking many hits rather than a general boon to keep up all the time. We also wanted to improve the combo finisher of the guardian, so we reorganized guardian greatsword skills to the following:

    Skill 3: Leap of Faith (15 second recharge)
    Skill 4: Symbol of Wrath (20 second recharge)

    Mirror Images is standard for shatter build. It's for the stun break as well as a fast 4 hit Mind Wrack to start or end the fight. It doesn't have anything to do with surviving, it's purely for burst damage.

    I don't know what "Xee's" build is, but the mesmer in the video is running a standard shatter build.
  14. Nikota added a post in a topic Possible Necro Point hold build?   

    I would agree with putting the points into Death Magic. I feel Death Shroud should be used more as burst damage avoidance and a free fear more than just a second health pool. Death Magic overall just has better traits in it, and you get a bit of bonus toughness to make up for the loss of the Death Shroud health.
  15. Nikota added a post in a topic Possible Necro Point hold build?   

    You may want to include runes, sigils, and amulet in your build because right now I can't tell what stats you're going for.

    From the looks of it, you seem to be doing a hybrid well-minion build with some conditions but with no condition damage. Idk the build doesn't make sense to me, perhaps it would if you added in gear.

    For a point hold Necro, typically you use heavy condition damage and get as much toughness as you can possibly get. Here is a good example of a tank necromancer: http://www.gw2build.com/builds/simulator.php#
