    • Rocket League Community Game Night Tournaments!   10/03/2015

      As of 25th of August 2015, we have been hosting Rocket League events!  This event is open for everyone to participate.  Below you will find all the details that you need to know to get involved, so please take a minute and read through carefully!  Hope to see you there at our next event!     When: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm PST/9pm EST (we start on the dot, so don’t be late) Where: Our TeamSpeak server (click here for setup guide/details) Format: 3vs3 - Double elimination, best out of 3 games. How to participate: Connect to our TeamSpeak server with your team (or alone) before starting time and you will be entered in the tournament by one of the admins.  Currently, you do not need to pre-register to participate in the tournament, simply be in the teamspeak in the Rocket League channel by starting time stated above. Participating alone: If you have come alone to the tournament you will be drafted onto one of the teams by an administrator of the event. Participating with a team: If you have come with one or two friends to the tournament, you will be allowed to play together.  When the drafting starts, you need to move to one of the team channels with your friend(s) so that the administrators knows that you are not alone.  Should it be necessary, a third person will be added to your team by an administrator.     Drafting Process:  Upon all teams being selected, we will create a challonge bracket that will be used to keep track of the games.  Each team will choose a team captain and report to the administrators the name of the captain.  On challonge, we will use team captain's name as the name of the team.  Challonge will randomize the matchups for us.  To view the latest challonge bracket, visit http://vvv-gaming.com/RLBracket Playing your games and reporting results:  When the challonge bracket is setup, you will be able to see against which team you are up against.  Team captains are expected to communicate to one another at this point and organize a game.  The game should be created with a username and password so that our shout casters are able to join your game should they choose to do so.  Upon completing your games, report the result of the game to the event administrators and they will update the challonge. Streaming (Shoutcasting): One game out of each round will be streamed throughout the night. To accommodate the streamers we ask that you allow the streamer to join your game prior to beginning your play and also to let the replays play to the end so that they have a chance to analyse your plays over the streams and show those amazing goals you score!  Should your game be selected to be streamed, one of the shoutcasters will get in touch with your prior to your game starting. Keeping up with updates of the event: Don’t forget to check back on these forums for any updates to the tournament and you can also join our Steam group to to get notifications about our upcoming events and easier access to our announcements: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/vVvGamingRL

    We gather a list of players who are interested and can practice a few nights a week.  We get a list of times that players are available (in both PST/EST)
    We get a list of HL rank as well as roles preferred, and we get this party started.
    Please use the following format
    Bnet Name:
    Hero League Rank:
    Preferred Roles (in order of preference):
    Preferred Heros (in order of preference):
    Times Available (PST/EST):
    Bnet Name: vVv_FireWater#1683
    Hero League Rank: 24
    Preferred Roles: (in order of preference): Ranged Assassin, Tank, Support/Healer
    Preferred Heros (in order of preference): : Valla, Raynor, Johanna, Diablo, LiLi, Malfurion, Muradin

    TK is a buddy of mine,
    Perhaps we should recruit him to vVv?

    gameplay videos look awesome for him.
  7. FireWater added a post in a topic Competitive play   

    Is there any movement on this, who is accountable?
  8. FireWater added a post in a topic Leroric back door in will be fixed   

    Yeah I think if he dies consistently, he should have to go back into spawn, or give him like a 100-200 second timer on passive.

    Thats my buddy, he's a good dude.

    Eh its perceptions vs reality.
    Heros in HotS are complete, meaning there are no runes or masteries.  Granted in LoL masteries cost 0.  Runes can't be bought with real money however they do take a fair amount of IP to get it.  Rune pages can be bought.
    I just wait for heroes to go on sale, or save up enough gold.  The free market will decide what costs are acceptable and what are not.

    Hopefully that will stimulate some growth.
    I bet a lot of people maybe intimidated regarding hero prices.

    Stormie and I the other day were using a Tyrael, Johanna double warrior comp and we would just blow up their mages/damage dealers.
    Either I would initiate with my Shield Stun and Tyrael would ult with a dash, OR he would ult first and then I would follow up with my ult right afterwards.
    Good bye Jaina/Kaelthas.
    Its a really brutal combo against mages, very difficult for them to escape or have their warriors peel.
    If we do 5s, I definitely want to learn Tyrael because I feel he is under used in Solo Q, but man he has some power.
