      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

    In addition to gaming, I am also classically trained in Oil Painting.
  1. Looking forward to seeing what I can do. Depending on the schedule Ill be looking at T2. Should be fun.
  2. That may be a great way to allow a player to maximize their potential. If we have a player capable of soloing one of the npcs, while also being a good contributor to team fights it may be a viable option to look at.
  3. Generally there will be specific builds that have an advantage for taking out the NPCs. The issue is trying to find a build that will be both good at soloing NPCs and running good interference. If a 2h warrior can consistently solo them it may be a good solo roaming character with its mobility and chasing power.
  4. I have seen some classes able to solo the boss npc. Engineer actually comes to mind. The only issue I see with this is that the classes that can solo it are not that amazing at zoning or fleeing if they get attacked. I think that the team that stays mobile as a group of 3 or more will have a huge advantage on this map. A 3/2 team split will work wonders. Thief and maybe ranger or mesmer would make a great 2 man where as the more aoe or defensive classes would do well as a 3 man.
  5. Guild Wars 2 PvP Map Guide 1: Table of Contents 2: Overview 3: Battle of Kyhlo Map Overview Objectives Competitive Strategy 4: Forest of Niflhel Map Overview Objectives Competitive Strateg 2: Overview PvP Game Types 8 v 8 “Hot Join” These game can be accessed through the server browser in “The Mists.” Accessible to anyone who wishes to PvP, they are the base level of conquest pvp in GW2. Played on “Capture and Hold” style maps, these games can be joined by the player mid match and can be left at any time. Generally this will be the casual side of PvP, a place for you and your friends to get your feet wet while feeling out your class or builds. 5 v 5 Structured Team These games will be accessible through a separate browser that will require 5 people to queue up for pvp together. Played on the same maps as the “Hot Join” games, the teams with the higher level of coordination and skill will have clear advantages. Team matches will be the primary focus of most guilds, and A-Net has stated that they intend on implementing a server based tournament system to allow the best teams to compete against each other. W v W v W Played on a series of 4 huge open world maps, this PvP type pitts three servers against each other over the course of a two week ongoing battle. Unlike the Conquest style of PvP, this will use your PvE Character's progression to determine your Skills and Traits, However your stats will be elevated to the equivalent of a level 80. Each server will have a “Home Map” where their players spawn, and control the structures there. Each server must gather resources to build siege equipment to assault the other servers with. At the end of the two week period the servers with the most points across all of the game will be pitted against each other. 3: Battle of Kyhlo Map Overview This is a Conquest style map with three capture and hold points. The unique features of this map include a trebuchet, destructible terrain, and a distinct vertical element that makes the playstyle on it about rapid mobility and map awareness. Objectives Teams will gain points through both capturing and defending their control points as well as player kills. Because of the close quarters of this map, having someone to man the trebuchet can be a very important aspect in gaining an advantage. With the trebuchet you can change the dynamic of the playing field due to the destructible terrain giving players different access routes to each objective. Competitive Strategy In this map, mobility is king. Because of the close quarters and vertical aspect, Blinks and Stealth are both very powerful tools to gain access to the central point. AoE is also very effective if you can catch several people in a hallway or ramp, causing significant damage to everyone within the radius. This particular tactic is fantastic for defending the lower level of the Clocktower. Your tankier characters can also help in this map by defending the outer points and trebuchet. These three points are the only really open areas on the map and are ideal locations to position your Engineers, Guardians and Necros. Trebuchet control is another important aspect in this map. Due to the extremely high damage that this can lay down, between 10,000 and 12,000 per shot to anyone in a large aoe, having someone to man this weapon is critical to a good teams success. Almost as critical, is having someone on your team to harass the player manning the opposing teams trebuchet. Generally you will want a high burst damage character in this role. I have found Mesmers do this very well because they do extremely high DPS to the trebuchet itself, after they have defeated the player manning it. 4: Forest of Niflhel Map Overview The second Conquest style map, this also sports three capture points. This map is unique because it has much larger open areas and wide corridors with very little vertical space. In addition to the more traditional layout, Forest of Niflhel features two boss style NPCs that, when killed, grant the slaying team a significant point boost and stat buff. Objectives As with Kyhlo, your team will accrue points based on the number of captured positions as well as player kills. The team that slays either of the two NPCs that spawn will also gain 50 extra points. Controlling the NPCs as well as the main routes between points will be critical to the success of a good team on this map. Competitive Strategy Control of the large central area in this map will be key to success. The area just south of the keep is wide open with multiple routes leading into it from all directions. This area will be a critical battleground for large team skirmishes, and maintaining dominance of it will grant easy access to the Two NPCs as well as the central control position. Because of the amount of points that they grant, prioritizing the Boss NPCs will also be very beneficial. On this map it is possible to only hold one point for the majority of the game as long as you maintain control of the NPCs. Keeping spawn timers on the Neutral Bosses will also ensure you can gain the maximum amount of points from them. Due to the wide open areas on this map, team fighting will play a much more integral role. Having a good mix of offensive and defensive players with plenty of CC will allow a team to dominate the center of the map. Defence of the outer points is much easier if you control the center due of the long routes that the opposing team will have to take to traverse the map. This also gives the added benefit of having control of at least one NPC. If you are attacking the center point remember that a team can easily be ambushed as they are attacking a NPC Boss. The Neutrals hit extremely hard and can easily kill a few people if they are CC'd or bursted down by a player. You can use this time to swiftly attack the weakened NPC to steal the points or use the confusion to assault an opposing control point.
  6. Lol, well turns out I can use the post he made instead of wormholes... Who knew?

  12. We just need to stop being on opposite teams. Then will you share the windmill?
  13. Really? That's kinda strange...
  14. I disagree here cwalk and here is why. While a ranger can kite a rogue effectively if talented correctly, you have to ask the question, why is the rogue chasing the ranger in the first place? As a rogue in a constructed PVP environment your job will be to engage and disengage quickly. The longer a fight drags on the worse off you are. Therefore if you are chasing a ranger talented for kiting you should probably stop and find a better thing to do with your time. You have to remember this is not a 1v1 game and kills are not all that important.
