      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!

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

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.

  1. I find these lists can help at first but you need to figure out for yourself which champs are good against others by trial and error. I find sometimes the way people play certain champs can make just as big a difference as the champs themselves. (in terms of things like aggressiveness in lane with certain champs)
  2. If you get lucky you can catch some good games. EG and TSM just played a scrim that was featured which wasn't bad. Though usually when I look through the games I see no names that i recognize.
  3. Honestly as I jungle a lot seeing people like this is sooo annoying. Is it that hard just to take smite so we don't keep losing dragon every time?
  4. they only took 1% off damage to overload from what i've read. While the slightly nerfed the mana they upped the base damages which will make up for part of it early game. As a result they did nerf his early game slightly. But the movement speed on his ult is a significant boost at 6 and his lategame is much improved by the ap ratios as in the long run you but some ap anyway.
  5. Ya I was wondering why in the world they decided to buff ryze........
  6. I pretty much agree with what you said I think this is more of a communication error . I said that you should gank pre-6 with warwick. You should gank pre-6 with every single person but with some it's more effective to gank more and some less before you hit 6. Warwick is one who ganks a lot more post-6 since it's a lot more effective. In comparison to a champ like panth or riven he ganks a lot less early game.
  7. That was actually a really good summary. Thought I have to disagree with one thing. Warwick pre-6 would not be considered a "gank" jungler. While you should gank it's not focused on that. Gank centered junglers are more champions like riven and pantheon.
  8. why does their tower in the background keep killing my minions after it's been destroyed?
  9. no it doesn't but when you end up with +31.17 armour from runes, +6 armour from masteries, 1% damage reduction from masteries and up to +15 armour from your w at lvl 1 that ends up stacking a lot of armour early. Though I do agree about the quality of your opponent poppy can beat a lot of bruisers with that base armour increase. They do make it a lot easier if they stay anywhere near a wall though.
  10. Well the thing about fid is that his route is so predictable early that it is extremely easy to counter him. You can deny him blue then you can mess up his jungle completely, if not you can just invade the other side and take most of his jungle since he really needs to start blue. Either way it puts him really behind. Even if you don't invade you know his route so you can show up for the second buff spawn either way to steal. I do agree though that pheonix udyr is an extremely easy jungle.
  11. I just find ram to be a more difficult jungle in comparison to junglers like shyv, ww or lee sin. I just have a lot of problems with rammus jungle ontop of those things. Didn't say cho was hard i said that he was quite fun but that I find it better for people to learn jungle with a more standard jungle.
  12. The thing about poppy is with her w with runes and masteries she can have a retarded amount of armour as Bluetoes mentioned. If you take advantage of that you should be able to beat most bruisers.(personally I'm still learning poppy can't seem to get the hang of her, but I have a friend that players her a lot)
  13. I find rammus jungle is not at all a good one to start with as it isn't anywhere close to a sustained jungle early and if you screw up even a little bit ur going to die and you'll be screwed for most of the game. to that whole list yes you can jungle some of them with ease but personally I'd think if someone wants to learn jungling it is better to go with one of the stronger jungles to get an idea of what to do. lol Cho jungle is quite fun, but see above. Havn't done trundle jung so I don't know much about it, but I do know that it is considered a very easy jungle. I find warwick isn't as easily countered as everyone thinks because at lvl 1 with a proper leash you'll have blue right away, and be at wraiths very quickly. You can then do red even before your smite is back up. After that you just time your buffs and make sure that you're there when they respawn. at that point the small camps don't matter as you should be running around ganking a lot more than farming your jungle. Also if they try and invade because they guessed/knew your timer you will be able to beat them or at least sustain long enough for one or both of your surrounding lanes to come help you. I find mao will a very good jungler wouldn't be the best one to start with for various reasons. Shyv is on my top teir because she is a very easy jungle and you can start with her if you want and if I had to choose 2 champs she would definitely be second but she isn't really the #1 easiest jungler.
  14. Definitely warwick as the easiest. He can literally start with any of the jungle starting items and do any route he wants and can still make it around. IMO gp jungle is not bad but it is easy to do something stupid and die in your rotation because u messed something up, and balancing ur w without blue after the first one runs out takes some time to get used to, and personally i figure if someone wants to learn how to jungle, focus on 1 thing at a time. Again agreed on ww. Fiddle can be done with relative ease I just find that beginner junglers always mess fiddle up as to be a good jungle he needs to get some kills from the lanes so once you get the hang of it you can always try fiddle, but I find him to be a weak jungle in general. If he gets fed he can carry a game but so can a lot of other junglers, e.g. ww, shyv, lee sin. If you're looking for 1 champ I'd definitely suggest warwick. Afterwards other junglers that you may want to try are some of the other really strong junglers because they're easier to learn, e.g. shyv and lee sin (those 2 in particular are nice as they don't have mana costs, so you don't need the blue buff except for the exp so you can give it away to your mid without issues) I tend to jungle a lot, if you want you can add me in game and I can answer any other questions you may have. edit: my IGN is the same as my username here, mat888
  15. The important thing is to change the build when you change the way you build a champ. There was a champ i found a better way to build and forgot to change it for a couple games and kept getting the wrong items because i kept getting what i was used to as it was already in the top bar.
