      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. Thanks buddy, I will
  2. Name: Jay Warner Age: 21 Location: Burke, Virginia Summoner Name: vVv Torment (Never changed it back...) What is your current division in Ranked? Unranked, didn't play for over a year How long have you been playing ranked? I played ranked for the first three seasons, but I was more involved in it with seasons 2 and 3 What rank were you at the start of last season? Bronze What rank were you at the end of last season? Silver Have you ever been banned in-game? If so, why? No What is your favorite champion and role? Why? Shyv, Noct, Hec, and Vi are a few of my favorite junglers. I like to jungle, because I like to roam and help out the other lanes. I also don't really enjoy the lane mechanics as much as jungling. Plus, I feel like jungling is one of the most challenging roles in my opinion of course. How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? I was a vVv member for a year. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? JayC, Medusa, Sugarbear, LordJerith, Doomhammer, and a bunch of others, because I used to be a member Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? Naturally, I can play games without being a member. However, I want to be a member again, because I'd like to contribute to the gaming community in practice for creating my own community. Not an online community like vVv, but a brick and mortar store that supports gaming. (Ask me about this for further details) What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Well, I would say that this question is directed at online gaming, so I'd like to say that my other hobby is offline gaming. I play Warhammer, Warmachine, Malifaux, and other table top games. Gaming is a major part of my life, and it is the reason why, I'm planning to create a gaming store. This kind of gaming also means that my hobbies include modeling and painting. I also enjoy graphics design from time to time and guitar. Do you have competitive tournament experience? Kind of? I played in the 1v1 tournaments that vVv created. I also have played inhouse games that were structured like tournaments. Have you attended any national events? No, I really wanted to, but school got in the way What do you hope to achieve competitively this season? I'm looking to have fun, but to do well. I'm looking to evaluate my play on a critical level and make myself a better player. All I hope to achieve is to play well seen in a positive winning ratio. Are you interested in finding a ranked 5s team to play on? Not at this time. I'm more interested in working with the community and helping it to evolve.
  3. I, vVv Torment, endorse Desalace. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in game or out? I've spent a lot of time with Matty in mumble. More so than anyone else from his team. Also, I've played several games with him. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? if so, how? Matty's a really nice guy, You can tell that he's good at League, but he'll still respect your opinion and discuss builds or strategies. What was your favorite moment with them? Matty and I like to joke around a lot. When I first met him he was telling me about the college humor joke with bane. "Do you know what happens to your body without fiber?" What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He's a very good player, so he brings coaching to the table, and he's also an awesome guy that people will just want to play with. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? Only once I have seen Matty get into an argument with someone on mumble. It lasted for far longer than it should have, so the only advice I have is to either know when an argument is really worth it, and to have it in private if it is worth it. Anything else we should know about this applicant? I believe the other endorsements have covered what I know of Matty's skills. Do you feel that they know and understand the five pillars of vVv Gaming? What about the Summoner's Code? Yes, I believe that Matty holds true to the values of the five pillars, and he is a nontoxic player in game. Beat ya to it
  4. I, vVv Torment endorse Chrono. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I've only played a few games with him so far, but it's obvious that he's a good player, and he doesn't rage. Out of game, I have spent quite a bit of time talking with him as well as his friends Desalace and Quasimodo. I believe that he's a really nice guy, and I'm happy to give him his first endorsement. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? I think he's a pretty chill guy, and he's got a good sense of humor. From spending time with him, I've only noticed these attributes more and more. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? I really enjoyed talking to him after the inhouse games last night. He's very good at pointing out what others did well, and I feel like we could use some more members like him in this regard. (Complimenting other players). What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? I feel like this community is filled with awesome people with a passion for gaming. Chrono is one awesome guy, and he's been very active, so I can only assume that he's passionate about League of Legends. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? He's very active in mumble, the inhouses, and his attitude is very good in my opinion. From my point of view, I would be perfectly happy having him in the community as is. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? He has joined the vVv Beta Community Team. Do you feel that they know and understand the five pillars of vVv Gaming? What about the Summoner's Code? I personally pointed out the pillars to him, and I would not have invited him to the community team if I did not believe that he was a nontoxic player.
  5. I, vVv Torment, endorse MephistosMark. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? About 12 years. Yeah, I know him. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? He was kinda short. A little young, but I asked him to be my friend and he said sure. Been best friends every since. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? He and I went to New York with a few of our other friends, and we had a good time just hanging out and enjoying ourselves. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He's a skillful player, and he likes to play with the community. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? Sometimes he starts to rage in game, but I think he is trying to tone it back and enjoy the game. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? He's versatile in all champions, and has about 3000 League games under his belt. Do you feel that they know and understand the five pillars of vVv Gaming? What about the Summoner's Code? He certainly understands the values of vVv gaming. After all, he has been around vVv for as long as I have. Also, he may be vocal at times in game, but he will rarely share it with others via typing. For the most part he's an honorable guy! ENDORSED!
  6. I, vVv Torment, endorse Sarahdactyl. How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? We've played quite a few games together, and we talk in mumble practically everyday. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? She's a very nice person overall, and the more I got to know her the more I got to like her. I feel that she would make a good addition to vVv. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? Mostly talking with her. For example when she asked me to endorse her a week ago, I told her that I might have to get to know her a little better first. She said to me that we're always in the same room (of course she meant mumble channel, but I still loled). What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? She's crafty, fun, and overall a friendly person. Furthermore, I believe that she shares our passion for gaming. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I believe that she hasn't played with too many members in vVv. So, I think it would be good for her to be a little more outgoing with the community and play lots of games with us. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? She's very good at arts and crafts. Plus, she's a crazy bird lady (new champ coming out?). Do you feel that they know and understand the five pillars of vVv Gaming? What about the Summoner's Code? Absolutely, in fact, I went over the 5 pillars with her myself, and I believe that she doesn't have a harmful bone in her body. ENDORSED!
  7. Bought Halo 4, and I actually like it a lot!

    1. Th0r


      No Black Ops 2? :o

  8. I'll do my best. Thank you for all the support! It's true though..
  9. For the first few weeks of college, I was still in a summer mood and somewhat neglected my classes to stay online longer. Naturally, my grades aren't up to my standards at this point in time, so I'll be inactive for a couple of weeks. (Now-November 17 or so) I'll still be getting on from time to time to play a couple of games, but I'm playing catch up right now with my classes. Once I've caught back up with my academics, I plan to start taking my extra time and putting it towards vVv once again. vVv Torment
  10. Prefer to sign up as a caster New headset coming in!
  11. I am also very impressed by this. I'm getting pretty interested in going into casting for League of Legends, and I found this very helpful. Thanks for posting!
  12. Agreed, her personality fits very well in our community. I would be happy to see her as an addition to our community
  13. Welcome to vVv Gaming! I'm so glad to hear that you like our community. vVv is filled with awesome gamers, so the question is, do you want to hang out with awesome people? Make sure you join the mumble and the vVv chat channel in game Looking forward to meeting you!
