      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.

      We would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent survey regarding the start time of our tournaments.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants we have decided to make changes to the start time of our events to try to better accommodate everyone.  Beginning on Monday, October 24th, all of our tournaments will start an hour earlier - at 8PM Eastern.  This means that registration will close at 7:30 EST, and that check-in starts at 7:30 EST and closes at 7:45 EST.

  1. How is it going all? My name is Alex, or better known around here as Trivium or Triv. I am an ex vVv member and staff from the Xbox days. I applied early in Black Ops 2, and had an unusually long application, earning my V's near the end of that game, right before Ghosts came out. At MLG Columbus, I met a lot of our community at the time, and had one of the most memorable weekends I have ever had. That was also the weekend I joined vVv staff as a Call of duty application manager, alongside vVv Bizkit. We spent a few months together there, and due to Call of Duty as a whole, I rejoined the community members, and shortly after, regrettably left to do staff work for a few low end Call of Duty organizations that never had the same drive for competition like vVv did. I am an inline hockey player for Penn State, where we earned 1 title, and 2 second place finishes in my 3 years on the team. I have also earned the accolades of assistant captain (from our coaching staff) and vice president (voted for by team mates) there. I would love to be involved with vVv again, as well as help grow the community back to the level it used to be! If applicants have any questions, feel free to ask, but I am sure the application processes are way different than I remember them being. Any members who are still around from when I was here, feel free to say hi, I will be on here a few times a week just to keep my name around the community. I will have my discord up and running in the next few days, I am looking forward to seeing you all there! Triv
  2. What would you like us to call you? Alex, Triv, Trivium, or the Alex not from the UK. Honestly doesn't matter too much What is your level (Age)? 21 Where ya from? Pittsburgh, PA What games do you currently play? League of Legends, NHL 16 (soon to be 17) and recently hit Runescape back up. For all of the old players, there is an Old School server up again! What games are you looking forward to playing? Pretzl told me Rocket League is pretty sick, definitely giving that a try soon. How did you hear about vVv Gaming? If it was by time travel device, please indicate the serial number. If by wizard, please indicate who. Used to be an application manager alongside Bizkit for Call of Duty Ghosts (see dates on profile) as well as a member for the time also listed on my profile. The first time I applied, I was referred to vVv by a wizard named Jeff. His name seems really makes me think he wasn't a wizard, maybe a time traveler. Now, I will never know. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? Do you wish you didn't know them? Pretzl, who I really wish I didn't know. I also think I saw Buzz in the chat box, so we all have the great fortune of knowing he's still here Jerith, the king of good advice, Organicbear (Nice name change), Doom and RobZ. I think I was NaturaL online as well. Everybody else under staff, not including Saturn and Cherp, I know at least by name or small interaction in the chat box. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Wait, what's "outside of gaming"? I play hockey at my college, as well as a local adult league when I am home. I play (mostly) metal music with my band downtown on occasion when we are all home from school, and work at a catering company. Do you have problems with toxicity or toxic behavior in game? If so, what have you done to reform this behavior? Would you like us to set you up with a "correctional administrator" (please submit $15 torture device maintenance fee)? I am not a toxic player myself (at least publicly ), but it drives me up a wall when other players are. I do what I can to stop others, but its ultimately up to them to quit. Generally, I just try to ignore it and still try to play my best game. In hockey... thats a different story. When you play games, do you tend to grind games as much as possible, or do you often reflect on your mistakes and actively seek to improve upon them? I tend to grind more, but I have never had a problem reflecting my own gameplay and figuring out what I have been doing wrong. Have you ever competed in or attended any online or LAN tournaments? National events? (PAX, LCS, IEM, etc.)? Stripper competitions? I attended MLG Columbus in 2013 supporting vVv, but mostly in meetings with Jerith, Bizkit, OrganicBear, Tavvy, RobZ, and plenty others, shortly after my acceptance to vVv. I roomed there with Sintherius (who never claimed his batch of my mothers cookies... so I ate them), and Brock. I also strip in competitions, and if I place above third in my next one, I will have an opportunity to strip in Amsterdam at the Strip-O-Lympics. What type of organization are you looking to join? What would the ideal environment look like for you? Would it have complementary pudding cups? Semi-Lax but always competing in some form. I don't have as much time as I used to, but would like to stream while I am playing, either competitive content across games, or more relaxed, interactive content. IQ Test Portion. Please complete the following sequences: E Pluribus Unum, shakeweight, candyland, _________ Ball in a cup 1, 3, 69, 69, 69, __ 69 Kevin Bacon, Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Lucille Ball, ________ Johnny Sins I, Fucked, Your, _________ Wife, 18+ year old sister(s) and mom.
  3. RIP Mikey :( Great dude, great player, and great friend!

  4. Hi guys its Trivium! Long time no talk? Anyways, we had an outbreak within Agent eSports, which spread onto Twitter. It infuriated me and I immediately though of vVv and The Five Pillars. For those who don't know I am an ex member of vVv, and I still love this organization! Many don't know, Jerry is a huge inspiration and one of my most favorite people in the world! I spoke to him a few times before, but when we met at MLG Columbus back in November, I was awe-stricken by the amount of intelligence one man can have, and motivated by his wording. Honestly, he's one of those people that can tell you more about yourself than you knew about yourself before! I'm sure everyone else who ever met him can agree with that as well! Well anyway, here is the article! If you enjoyed it please retweet this tweet it would be very much appreciated! #BelievVve! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ @Agent_Trivium on professionalism in @AgenteSports, eSports, and in General. I expect everyone in @AgenteSports to maintain a higher level of professionalism, weather you are planning on going pro or not. If were giving you the chance, the least you can do is show we don't just pick up anybody. If you were able to look at our DM's on the Agent twitter and see how many people would love to have your opportunities, maybe you all would stop taking things for granted. For those who don't know I was a player and staff member for an organization known as Vision Valor Victory, or vVv. When you apply and earn an interview to become part of the organization, you are expected to know and be able to explain the "Five Pillars of vVv Gaming" which I will link for everyone at the end of this article. These were written out by the owner himself and one of my personal mentors, vVv Lord Jerith. These pillars were established for two purposes: one as a guide to give every single person wanting to be involved in the a concrete post explaining what is expected of them as a member of vVv: and two, help vVv maintain the prestigious image it has managed to upkeep over 7 years, and earning itself over 120 top 5 placements in 20 different titles. Is there a correlation to maturity over social media and respect for the teams each player represents? I'd say so. It doesn't matter if you are a youth AM wanna be AM team, or a T8 team, act mature. If you think the players of Evil Genius, Complexity, Optic, Team Kaliber, or even Annex are where they are today by complaining about their team mates on social media, or down talking their own organization where the public can see or hear it? I don't think so. Of course everyone messes up and says something they don't mean, or a harmless joke is taken the wrong way. But when it turns into a 14-15 tweet battle back and fourth, that is UNACCEPTABLE. I don't care if you have 40 followers and half of them are smurf accounts you made to make yourself look better (which thats a whole other story), that is still 20 people that get a poor taste in their mouth of you, as a representative of an organization, therefore making the organization, your team mates, other players, the staff, the designers, and the organization as a whole look bad. Of course I used a small example and that may or may not have gotten the point across. Lets move on a larger scale now. Your an AM team with a combined total of 1200 followers (we will say 500 per player and 200 on the team/org Twitter), you drop one player and announce you have an open slot on social media. Everything between you and the dropped player is worked out behind closed doors, everyone looks good. On the other hand, if you say something along the lines of, "@'insert name here' is dropped from our team LF1" and nothing was resolved prior, or the dropped player wasn't informed before the Tweet went out, thats a major problem. Especially when names get thrown back and forth at one another, people cry and carry on, etc. Now that looks bad in front of a lot more people. Lets say somewhere along the line something gets 4-5 retweets from randoms with 200 followers a piece. Thats an additional 600 that see your immaturity, now your at an 1800 person reach. Thats how a lot of teams get a bad rep. Even outside of eSports this little lesson is very, if not more, applicable. One day every single person reading this will represent something, weather its a small business, clothing brand, musical group, or even just there self. Being able to show the correct level of maturity, based on the situation, is key in anything you do, and problem solving is the most important skill in both the workplace, and at home. Why not practice on a small scale? Learn how to interact on a day to day basis. Most importantly, hold yourself to the highest standards. Who knows, one day you could be interviewing for the position of a lifetime and how you compose yourself could determine your fate of that position. One more thought before I end this post, I want to leave everyone something to think about and its a quote from Lord Jerith himself: "It's not about what an organization can do for you, but what can you do for the organization". For those of you not understanding that quote, I can tell you right now you will need a lot of work, especially if you want to be in the gaming and eSports industry. This quote simply means , if you do good work for somebody (an eSports organization in this case), it will get recognized. If you are someone who puts 110% of their effort into something, passion, and maintain a positive presence in the [eSports] community, the organization will grow, and because of your involvement, YOU will grow. In conclusion, just problem solve behind closed doors, and if you do get in an argument in public on social media, there are things called "Direct Messages". Send them there, leave them there. I want nothing but the best for the people we at Agent eSports pick up as players, but I also expect them to give us their best. If I see poor representation, I will take note and let you know in a PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL message. If problems persist, actions will be taken. On the other hand, I will do my best to reward the positives as well. Thank you for reading this and I sincerely hope that this has opened some peoples eyes. As promised here is a link to the 5 Pillars of vVv. Everyone should read this! http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/topic/39135-five-pillars-of-vvv-gaming/

  10. Name: Alex Ribeau Age (minimum 16): 19 Location: Pittsburgh, Pa Gamertags (for all systems you own): Xbox: vVv Trivium If you have any social media accounts, could you provide links directly to your account (Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc.)? https://www.facebook.com/ribeau https://twitter.com/mlg_trivium How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? I used to be in vVv Who do you know currently in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? I know just about everyone in Titanfall and CoD Division, as well as a lot of honorary and executive members. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? I am looking to join an organization that will allow me to rebuild my skills as a player, and push me to the next level of competitive gaming. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? I enjoy cooking, and performing heavy metal music. What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have? I have played a few local LANS, picked up with friends of mine, as well as game battles. Have you attended any major tournaments (MLG, UMG)? I attended MLG Columbus as a spectator. How often do you participate in online tournaments (360 Icons, GB)? When I had a team, I would compete in latter matches daily. Do you prefer pickups/team scrims or matchmaking? Why? I enjoy team scrims with teams of the same caliber or higher. It allows me to see how other people play and shows vulnerability in my own, or my teams, style of play. Thus, teaching us how to adjust accordingly. Do you watch replays and/or pro player streams? How often? When I am at my peak level of competition I watch every day when I am not playing myself. Who is your favorite competitive Call of Duty player? Why? Wolf is by far one of my favorite players. I have spent a lot of time talking to him recently and I think he is a great player who needs to find the right team for him, and has an awesome personality to match! What is your favorite competitive Call of Duty team? Why? Team Kaliber has been a favorite team of mine since it's rise in Black Ops 2. Most of that team was composed of vVv players (the ones who originally brought me here) and from the day they left fourth they have improved to a top notch team. What is your favorite Call of Duty game? Why? My favorite game to play is Modern Warfare 2. It takes me back to the days where I just had fun with the game. My favorite game competitively is Black Ops 2. I find it to be the best game since it provides the most action, online and at LAN, as well as the online gameplay being the least "broken", for lack of a better term. What was your best competitive moment? What was your worst? My best competitive moment was either the team scrim where I had 22 blitz captures, or a SND 2V1 clutch to take the map. My worst moment is accidentally walking off the side of Meltdown SND, causing a loss. What do you hope to achieve, competitively? I want to play with a team to achieve top placements and I will do whatever it takes to do it. I've had a few months off from CoD (since Titanfall came out actually) and just need a short adjusting period to get used to the dynamics of the game again, and the Xbox One. This time, I am not losing sight of the people who will help bring me there, and bring back the glory vVv once had in Call of Duty eSports.
