      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.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops     We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming.  
      Stack-Up's Mission   "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside.  They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies.  It isn't just about having fun either!  Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief!

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

As a member of the eSports community? I feel I always can improve my gun skills, communication, and mental aspect. Support more titles, more activity in the eSports community as well.

  7. MLG Dallas 2011

    Adam "IceVayne" Konen MLG Dallas 2011, where do I really begin with this event? I guess the best way to recap this eventful weekend would be to skip the uneventful Thursday and start on Friday in Dallas. Before going to the event we chilled out for a while, because we didn't want to deal with the super long line MLG always has for people to check in. We headed there around noon, and were able to catch up in the line with Jason, Keara and others near the front of the line. The line moved slowly forward, and we finally checked in and walked around the venue to see the new set up. It was pretty amazing. The only thing that I wish was different was to have the commentators more interactive with the spectators. We started warming up on the new the MLG monitors. If you don't have one yet, you need to go out and grab one. After warming up we grabbed something to eat since we knew it was going to be a long night. Our first round was a bye, so watched our friends playing. Round 2 and 3 were pretty easy for us and we won both series 2-0. Round 4 we played against Extreme Z, Killzone, Xile, and Napoleon. We dropped the first game of Element TS to them, and I know I played really bad that game. Despite our practice I wasn't fully warmed up for full screen. But no worries, cause after that loss we proceeded to take the next two games with ease. We advanced onto Winners Round 5 to face Cryptic, took both the games easily and won the series 2-0. To get into pool play we had to play Swagga Like Us. Game 1 was Zealot TS, which wasn't the strongest game type or map, and we lost like 50-37. Game 2 started out really slow for us, and we were really slow and inactive. Halfway through the game Frosty got everyone pumped and told us that we need to get into it or we were going to lose, plain and simple. We bounced back and won the game 5-3 (or 5-4). We were pumped for the next game which was Sanctuary TS. It was a back and forth game for the most, but we took a bad turn at the very end with some miscommunication and we lost the game 50-49, losing the series 2-1. That was one long and dreadful walk back to our hotel. We ended up being able to joke about the whole situation and kept ourselves in a good mood. Saturday came and it was mostly us just us standing around and watching people until like 6PM. We had a pretty awesome chant going for my team called "Who ate all the pies," saw some pretty insane upsets happen in losers bracket, and got some time to warm up against Hot N Mild. We got some good warm up games in with them and were ready to play our first match up. We ended up facing against Young Money for top 24. Game 1 was Sanctuary CTF and wasn't too much of a challenge (they
  8. Myself and the rest of AR will be there.
  9. The playlist is pretty messed up.
  10. Opening day a couple days away! Pretty pump to see baseball season start back up.
  11. We possibly might make it out. Depends when we all get there, which is still up in the air.
  12. Welcome to vVv! Enjoy your stay.
  13. Video is pretty sick. Def a great combo with Eminem and Dre.
  14. I don't think the Yankees off season was that a big of a bust. They did sign 3 pitchers that are more low risk, high rewards. Bartolo Colon has been pitching pretty well this spring. I haven't seen much of Freddy Garcia, but they can add some good value to the rotation. It just depends if A.J. will be solid or not.
  15. Hewwo!
