      Changes to the Application Process   08/03/2016

      Hello Everyone!   I'm creating this announcement to inform every vVv applicant that I have introduced a few short-term goals that we all will be working toward accomplishing over the next few weeks. One of these goals directly affects your application process.  If you would like to read the full post in detail, and maybe learn a little about me, follow this link. The TL;DR of why I'm addressing this announcement to you is to inform you that our application process will be undergoing a few dramatic changes that will affect your application. vVv Gaming wants to be as transparent as possible when it comes to what changes our Staff team makes and why. We will be changing the applications themselves as well as how they work. Our community wants and needs a larger say in who is accepted and who isn't. We also want to encourage community interaction as much as possible. With these changes, we are wanting to allow members the ability to give constructive criticism to applicants, provide the opportunity for applicants to interact with members and other applicants that they normally may not, and open a platform for discussion and the sharing of ideas. With the reimplementation of the Endorsement System, vVv Gaming is looking to give the power back to our Members and put the fate of the Applicant (and their application!) in their own hands. Applicants will need to receive 5 endorsements from current vVv Members (Staff endorsements work as well!) to earn their pre-interview. If an Applicant fails to receive a new endorsement every 3 weeks the application will be closed. Full details on how the Endorsement System works can be found through this link. Because we are introducing new application forms and a different way of how the application process works, we will be closing all currently open applications. Once the new application forms are posted, all applicants that had an application open during this time will be able to immediately reopen their applications. This means that those applicants do not need to wait 30 days as the new rule states, this will be a one-time exception due to circumstances under which these applications were closed. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message. I apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause. Thank you for your patience and your enthusiasm for joining vVv Gaming!

      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!

      vVv Gaming Returns: Community Game Nights! (CGNs)   08/15/2016

      Rocket League Community Game Nights (CGN) with vVv Gaming are back starting on Monday, August 22nd!  These CGNs will allow teams and individual Rocketeers to continue to bring their A game and level up their gaming skills in two unique events each week! Whether the goal is to improve teamwork, find suitable opponents, or just acquire valuable feedback on how to improve one’s game-play, these events will help accomplish just that! Mondays will continue to be our draft night and due to your feedback, we will be returning to a format of random captains with the ability to opt out of being a captain. Wednesdays will continue to be a night for pre-made 3v3 teams. Supersonic Series Season 4 is happening and we will be announcing information on that and the start date at a later time.   Monday Night Draft
      When: 9PM  EST (6PM PST)  Check-in starts at 8:30PM EST and closes at 8:45PM EST

Captains are chosen at random and each captain picks their team-mates. Registration: Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/RLRegister on the day of the tournament to register.  While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain.  If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of tea`ms, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers.  If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players.  Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team.  Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

    oh and of course Day[9]
  1. Im game if you guys need anyone! Been itching to play against not-ladder people....
  2. Not every change that takes place automatically makes something imba.. the point of a balance patch is to.. well.. balance! So the medivac change isn't imba.. it's a balance patch to make sure medivacs dont just die. This is perfect, especially the last phrase. Protoss can warp in, zerg can make a thousand things at once, but terran HAS to win big late-game engagements or have a TON of production structures or the game is over if he loses.
  3. Oxford Ohio!
  4. Seen any recent results? He definitely still is.
  5. this is AWESOME thanks for sharing!!!
  6. I think this is probably true. These changes are pretty major, so the metagame would, in many senses, reset. I don't think completely though, because not TOO much early game stuff is changing. At least not enough to drastically effect whether or not i go 15 hatch 15 gas 15 pool, etc. It would definitely effect the lategame, all of these changes seem to be directed towards late game with the exception of the reapers that makes sense. I wonder what they will do, increase attack speed and decrease damage maybe? Idk, the whole usage of DTs seems to be kind of a gamble, and kind of a harassing unit anyway, so inclusion in an army has always seemed a bit odd to me. It doesn't really happen. Though I guess that's what blizzard wants to change. It will be interesting to see what they do next. I think it is important for all players here to remember that this is still just the beta so they could basically do whatever they want just for the purpose of seeing how it effects the overall game and the happiness of the players, etc. I think that, Reere, maybe they ARE trying to reset the metagame to see where it takes us and how quickly, and if the changes are positive or negative. And what better way to test this out than the beta of a new game? It seems foolish at this point in WoL to make drastic changes with lots of big events coming up. Can you even imagine how horrible that would be for the pros if everything reset just before the end of the year, and right before a new game? Some would probably quit
  7. Nerf the infestor? what is this crap? Thats a joke for all of you who just loaded your shotguns and google mapsearched my house. I think this is all good. Zerg has been making me so mad lately with all the flack it's getting for the infestors so I'm glad I can actually use different units and try to win in a, what I hope will be called, 'legit' way. Not sure what I think about DTs, they are difficult to deal with late game when a lot of stuff is going on already if you aren't prepared. The IF is important there, but aren't DTs kind of supposed to be a gamble anyway? Just my thoughts
  8. I use Ikari and razer blackwidow.. i'll be getting either a 6gv2 or a Das. Though honestly I like the cherry blues and the blackwidow isn't nearly as bad as all the hack it gets on forums and stuff. I like it. As for the mouse, it is HUGELY preference in my experience. I love the Ikari. Some people hate it. It works for me I guess, though I'm sure a sensei would as well ^^
  9. SC2 was my first PC game, and I was placed into bronze. I started because two of my friends were gold level and invited me to try the demo. I loved it and instantly fell in love, and taught myself the game, moved from bronze now to top diamond in a bit over a year. I also roflstomp the two guys who got me to play. I have great dexterity which helps a lot, and I analyze really well so ladder progress has been, for the most part, pretty easy. The one thing that is really still frustrating is that I can coach or tell people what they should be doing really to masters level, but can't quite do it myself, I still do idiotic things like forget infestation pit and or upgrades. However, my mistakes have been slowly eliminated by good replay analysis and stuff. A major problem of mine a month ago was lack of scouting and now, I can scout and know the metagame well enough to make a very educated guess as to what my opponent is doing. Unfortunately, and I'll be honest, you can't really do this below diamond all the time because players get gas and then go marines or zealot rush. It is silly and nonsensical and for that reason, to get out of lower leagues into plat-diamond and eventually masters, i am taking Reere/Glon's advice and learning only one or two builds TOTAL and then learning the mechanics to progress past the early game if your build (it is generally an attack of some sort, aka 2base roach bust, 4gate, etc) to still be able to win. I recommend watching a lot of replays and seeing the metagame and what the pros are doing as this helps drastically improve your builds. Day[9] is AMAZING for helping improve as well because of his detailed analysis of builds and games.
  10. As a zerg player, I'll tell you i feel like zergs have a LOT more options on how they open. I personally choose roach bust a lot of the time because my macro is a little more shaky than my micro is, and i usually hit with 7 roaches around 6:20 with a natural complete. Of course, i can also open 3-base and you can't do much about it. These both are assuming that you are going ffe. Now, the one thing that protoss can do is choose a wacky tech path that zergs aren't prepared for. You could go void ray/phoenix, double robo, fast 3rd, blink, and if you catch me off guard with any one of these you will get in enough damage/economic gain to push ahead. It seems like the metagame forces both p and z into certain specific final builds, but I'd honestly argue in some ways that protoss late game (with a good army composition) is better than zerg IF certain things go right. For a zerg to win things need to go right also. It's true that infestor/BL/roach or whatever else is probably a bit stronger than mothership/archon/stalker/etc.. but it depends on the micro. That's my zergy perspective on it, feel free to correct me of course ^^
  11. So i ran into a bit of trouble vs all 3 races, i noticed, when i got cheesed. It was honestly lack of knowing what to do and prioritizing the build over saving my natural hatch and losing it, stuff like that. Live and learn i guess, but so far doing really well on ladder, moved up to rank 1!
  12. My computer does not stream at high quality no sorry... yours might have to do, i dont stream
  13. Ill co cast! Been meaning to for a while
  14. Definitely a good idea, if you need any help setting this up let me know and ill be there!
  15. Thanks! I felt my mechanics were good but never felt comfortable with a style of play. This is literally perfect for me, it lets me do damage to my opponent and get tons of econ knowing i am safe. I played one game where i had 3 bases up while my opponent was expanding. Idk i just feel.. better with this build! My apm went up on average llike 50 no joke and my scouting has been great also... thanks for the advice too about playing vs the AI btw that helps a ton when i have like 20 mins to play and am not sure if i can squeeze in a ladder game.
