      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. Very sad sir. Very. =[
  2. Yeah..about all we can do is watch the videos being released online for Halo 4. It's different preparing for a tournament this way. Big time!
  3. vVv Ability Update #1

    Hello all! I'm here for the first update on vVv Ability. To talk about my thoughts on Halo 4, our team, preparation, and what I've been doing outside of the gaming world. We also received some bad news yesterday and I'll make sure to get to that at the start of this blog. Yesterday we found out bad news about Kevin (FragThat). Due to Military orders he found out yesterday that he is unable to attend the Dallas event. This was a shock to us all. Especially for me seeing that he is one of my best friends and I haven't been able to see him since our Columbus tournament. All of us are pretty tore up about it, along with Kevin. We appreciate his service and understand tho. Now we have reached out to a few solid players whom we have known for a period of time and have full faith in. Our plan is to have this situation figured out within the next couple of days, and bounce back into things easily. Onto the things that I have been doing outside of gaming. Mostly I just have time for work. I just recently got promoted to full time which I was pretty excited about. Besides working I try to fit in running, tennis, hanging out with the casual friends, and keeping up to date with the Halo 4 videos being released. Its been a busy schedule for the most part! Going into how we have been preparing for Halo 4 release. As everyone knows there has been pirated copy's of Halo 4 leaking. Ability is not going to and will not pirate a copy of Halo 4. We appreciate what they are doing to bring this game back to life for the whole community. It's pretty crappy people are actually doing that to get an edge on the competition at Dallas in my opinion. All we have been able to do to prep for Halo 4 is keep up to date with all the video releases, news, and info that's being released. I'm really looking forward to the oddball game type. Especially for MLG settings. I'm thinking that the oddball gametype will be the most intense gametype for MLG thus far. Being able to throw the ball to and from teammates and even to enemy's is an awesome idea. I'm also thinking the new way capture the flag set up is an awesome idea. Yeah it's different, but coming from Halo Reach we are needing different. In my opinion the objective gametype's for Halo 4 are going to be amazing compared to the last few titles. As a long term halo player (sinec halo CE) I'm really anxious to all the new Halo 4 gameplay and how it will effect the competitive scene. Hearing that there's only 10 Halo 4 passes left for MLG is also a big boost of confidence that this game is bringing Halo all the way back for MLG! I was thinking they would sell around 75-80% of the passes, but to almost be sold out now is amazing! That's about it for this blog! As soon as new things happen I'll make a new one to update everyone. Dallas isn't too far away! -Thanks guys!
  4. Trying to wait for some/a few questions before posting the first update. =P
  5. Thanks.
  6. Thanks man! I didn't think it would mess up like that because of a proxy site =P
  7. whoops. I'm at work and I have to use a proxy site to get on vVv. Just search his username and link it on here for me please ibrashear7
  8. In my opinion he is one of the most underrated players. I'm trying to get him fully into the competitive side. He's going to for BO2. I told him I would help him out with his youtube channel and live stream. Every night I play with the guy he drops 5 or more MOABS. Just check out the gameplay! http://www.youtube.com/user/ibrashear7
  9. I'd be down. For the games I actually own at least. =P
  10. Also: I'm starting a blog series to keep the community up to date with what we are up to and how the team is doing. Check it out! Hopefully I can get my MacBook back soon and start some Vlogs!
  11. Hello all! I'm just posting this first entry to let everyone know what is going to happen. Starting Friday on the 12th, I will be posting blog updates weekly (every Friday) to let everyone know what's going on in the vVv Ability world! We are really looking forward to Dallas, and seeing all you guys that are attending again! Once I get my MacBook back from being fixed, I'll start doing some Vlogs also! Like I have previously stated. This is just a introduction to what's to come! If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to stop by and say "hey" just post them in here. I'll be sure to get them in on the #1 starting blog on Friday! -Thanks Guys
  12. I agree!
