vVv deathsgrasp got a reaction from vVv Alexa in Member Application - Alexa.
I, vVv deathsgrasp, endorse Alexa.!
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I play with alexa almost every day at least in both pubg and RL when I'm feeling brave enough What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
Sounded very young and was questioning his maturity a bit. however, he has managed to impress me a lot as he is continually willing to learn and prove himself to be a great potential vVv member What was your favourite moment with them (in-game or out)?
Honestly too many to count there is at least one time whenever we play we look back on the next day and laugh it out! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
He is always willing to learn more about admin related topics and is always a great help to the community whenever someone has a question! How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
Have more confidence in yourself! I over slept on last Thursday's tourney and alex held down the fort till I got back! remember everything I teach you I was told the same exact thing so if I could figure it out I have complete faith that you can as well... just stay cool and solve 1 problem at a time! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
Thinks he has no friends but doesn't realize he has a family right here waiting to accept him ;D

How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I have been playing with him off and on around a few weeks now and I must say even though I usually play RL on east servers I don't hear not 1 word of complaint coming from him which is cool. shows character! Lord knows I'd be huffing and puffing. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
He's a chill down to earth guy very cool to play with and even just talk to. He is very friendly and always willing to play. He has been like this since iv had the pleasure of meeting him What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
Every time I play with grim its always a fun experience! I'd have to say my favorite time with him is probably every time he carries me when I'm drunk makes me feel like im not too much of a burden and allows me to continue having fun as well! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
The fact he's always willing to play with anyone who he meets IMO makes him a perfect candidate because after all what good is a gaming community if people aren't willing to make friends. How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
I think maybe offering his help to some of the staff members for example on Monday night drafts is a quick and easy way to better his potential! it's really easy and doesn't take more than like an hour and REALLY helps the staff set up teams and what not. NOW GO AND BUG MOH! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
IM NOT A STALKER JESUS but if I do find out in my research some new and interesting set of skills he's hiding... I will come.... and edit this post...
YOUR JOURNY IS JUST BEGINNING YOUNG GRASSHOPPER! look forward to seeing you around!

I, vVv Broba, endorse Petedz!
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I have played with the applicant several times across several different games. Rocket League, Golf with Friends, stuff like that. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
My first impression of Pete was that he was a great guy who loved to play Rocket League. I remember several times in private matches us being on the same team and having a blast and that hasn't changed since I've met him. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
My favorite moment with Pete was the time we were in a private 3s match and I almost scored a goal after slamming into the wall and boosting out from my car turning. I hit the ball and it just barely hit the post. Such a close goal!! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
This applicant makes a good fit because he is a great member of the community. I've seen him around all the time, even just sitting in the discord playing games. I have seen that he is really passionate about gaming and he seems really eager to help out more. Perhaps he could be on staff?! How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
The best thing I could say to Pete would be to keep being active and available and to think about something that he could really bring either to the community at large or even to our events and possibly other games. If there's something that you would really like to do don't be afraid to let us know! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
I'm not necessarily sure about skills or talents but you should know that he loves Rocket League and is always someone you want to be around playing games and things. I can't wait to see what he will bring to the table.

*takes a deep breath and begins*
well i work in the textile industry which in the usa is a bit odd considering its mostly outsourced to china these days, but hopefully trump will do something useful and use incentives to bring those jobs back which in my case will be great. now, i dont have a degree what i do have is work experience in just about every single area in the industry. from spreading fabric, to cutting it, to putting it into a sewing line to inspection, to even screen printing, and finally shipping it off to customers. I know how everything operates and how it should be controlled. not to mention i have already established contacts which in my opinion is better than a degree in most situations. so to finally answer your question. if 5 years i see myself in an operations manager position controlling everything from orders to shipping and everything in between. however, depending on life i might just end up over either spreading and cutting or shipping as i am currently the supervisor of both and i dont see my father in law choosing me over his son anyday soon ;D but in the mean time i learn everything i can so if any job opprotunities in the future present themselves ill be a great candidate with all my experience in all areas. *finally exhales* lol if yall cant tell i suck grammatically please dont judge run on sentences are my favorite!
NEXT QUESTION >=D
vVv deathsgrasp reacted to vVv Broba in Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!
The reasons I am proud to display the V's in front of my name are simple. I was someone who had a passion for this game of soccer played by cars, I wanted an outlet to send that passion through and make it grow even bigger. Bagzli trusted me enough to let me try my hand at sharing my passion for Rocket League here and in the few short months that I have been here I truly feel like myself again. I've struggled through some pretty rough stuff in my life but vVv introduced into my life a place to call home. I've helped us try to become bigger in the community for the game as a whole and I want to show everyone how amazing everyone here is. This community is one of the best I've seen and I really do love it here. Thanks especially to Bagzli for giving me a chance and helping me to grow in the role that I play here.
I remember my first experience of seeing what vVv Gaming was all about and that was actually going through and watching the video about what vVv is. I was so inspired by everything that I saw that I just had to become a member. Now, I'm the stream coordinator and, while its not always easy, the feeling of seeing something that I've worked so hard to put together, whether it's one of our tournament streams or being on staff for the RLXL event last year, is something that I've never felt before and it was amazing. I love what I've done here and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
vVv deathsgrasp reacted to vVv Mohulis in application - deathsgrasp24
I, vVv Mohulis, endorse Deathsgrasp!
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I've spent a fair bit of time with him, both in and out of Rocket League. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
Super friendly as a person in general, but I noticed he was very accepting to teammates no matter how good at RL they were. He's continued to be this way as long as I've known him. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
It wasn't really one moment, but during Season 4 of the Supersonic Series his weekly fight for the top of the Draft leaderboards was pretty hilarious to watch. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
He is active in our discord, frequently looking for or playing with others, and friendly. How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
Win more often. j/k || Attend/help with more of our tourneys. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
Nothing that currently comes to mind.
vVv deathsgrasp reacted to Nick Slagle in vVv Application (Mugen)
Name: Nicholas Wayne Slagle
Location: Buda, Texas
Steam profile link: http://steamcommunity.com/id/MadMadMugen/ Battle.Net Tag: Mugen#11350 What is the game you are currently most active in and why? (only name one game) Rocket League. The community makes the game playable, I'm super competitive and I excel at playing the game more than any other game. What are some other games that you currently play? H1Z1, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Battlefield (all), Overwatch, Golf with Friends, Arma 3, Shellshock Live, and most importantly Skyrim (this game means a lot to me, I've been a part of the Nexus modding community for a long time. I haven't created mods since I don't have the skill set for that but I am constantly an active part of the community's feedback and support. Skyrim in my opinion is one of the greatest games ever made even though it's birth year is only 2011. I am very enthusiastic about this game and could talk for hours on end about it.) How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? I originally played rocket league on ps4 and wanted to upgrade my gaming platform so I got a pc and the first game on pc I got was Rocket League. Eventually I met new people and friends and was invited to play in the Monday night draft several months back. I cannot remember who referenced me to vVv. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How did you get to know them? Petey, Bliss, Broba, Syracuse, Pretzl, Mohulis, Bagzli all I met from Rocket League or Overwatch while spending time in the vVv discord chat channels. All of which I've spent lots of time with and greatly enjoyed their company. If I had to say what makes me want to join vVv I would say that it is because of these people I have listed more than anything else. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? I've never been a dedicated member of a community this large and I'm curious to see what it has to offer. I have no real ambitions for joining since I am unfamiliar with what gaming communities typically do, but Bagzli made it sound pretty badas* What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? I enjoy hunting and the outdoors (I work at Cabela's which is a huge outdoor sport store as an inventory specialist), I love love love anime. Like I've seen probably 400+ different shows..... #weebstatus How do you plan to add value to vVv Gaming? I'm not sure what I can offer to this community apart from my loyalty and some time to be a part of it, I'm unsure if my skills can be useful but if they can be used for the development of any aspect within the community then I'd be happy to bring forth my talents to the best of my abilities. Apart from just gaming I consider myself to be well educated and very analytic, I often find myself as a mediator between conflicts of interest since I am able to remain objective and unbiased on most subject matters. When I was 21 years old I worked as an assistant manager at Radio Shack for 3 years, so I believe I have a strong sense of duty and an ability to lead others as well as take direction and constructive criticism well (I, in fact, enjoy hearing the constructive opinions of others). I'm sure there is more I could offer and should I be needed, I feel comfortable enough to state here in this application that you may count on me to do my best for this community - whatever it may be. I also might be able to continue, at the very least, as a caster for some of the rocket league related live streams. I am currently a complete novice at the casting process but I feel comfortable with learning the trade from those within this community and I feel confident in my exponential growth as a caster. That being said, I am still unsure as to how I feel about continuing this path for vVv since I have spent so little time with it, however if I decide that I will not continue this path I will give the appropriate higher-up significant notice before I completely resign from that role. Do you attend LAN Events? As I am going to school and paying as well as working money for me is a little constricting so I am only able to be a part of LAN events around my area, in fact this month Austin is hosting the South By South West festival where Rocket League and many other games will be showcased in a LAN setting that I will be visiting! Basically if I have the ability and familiarity with the LAN event I am usually willing to go. Will you be meeting with us in person at PAX SOUTH in January of 2017? I believe this question should answer itself considering the time frame for which I am currently going to post this application...

well I know I'm not an official member yet but I just wanted to put my 2 cents in.
why do I love vVv gaming? well, I haven't had the pleasure of being introduced to the all the old vets here but from the members, i have had the pleasure of talking too I must say. vVv member is some of the most welcoming and just straight forward people iv met in any community. sift through all the jokes and tomfoolery and you've got people who enjoy playing games and who are always open for conversations. (no matter how drunk I may be at the momment! ;D) then on top of that if you have any questions, no matter how trivial, they are always around to help out. anything from finding a team to improving your gameplay they not only will help coach you but will do so happy and willingly. I look forward to bolstering the vVv ranks and just having fun with all of you!
I may not be a member yet but this is why I love vVv gaming. Cheers!

vVv deathsgrasp reacted to vVv Saturn in Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!
Great read Bagz. Your particularly long posts are always awesome to read.
But I'm going to take your post one step further. I CHALLENGE current vVv members to reply with why they love being a member.
I have always been an explorer. No MMO ever has a class that I can play for more than a day or two. vVv Gaming has been a home now three years. I've been a member for about two and a half years. Every time I get an idea, I try to make it happen. Whether it be failing to start new divisions (reference Nosgoth and Heroes of the Storm), threw my hand at managing the Social Media accounts (I think Medusa and Robz can understand) and attempting to lead the Supersonic Series. Every time I've convinced myself to jump at a new project, vVv Members have always been there for me. Mentoring me to learn best practices, giving me people to look up to (LordJerith and Paradise), and goals to aspire to live out. Consider this my experiment to find my talents, I know I'm good at something, but I haven't quite found it yet. Consider this post my gratitude to awesome people I've met along the way. LordJerith for your unrivaled honesty, you truly are someone I look up to as a role model. Rob, you didn't quit on me when I struggled with handling the social media accounts, for that I thank you. Medusa for kicking my ass in gear to put my very best in everything I did. And Bagzli, for pushing me to be the very best version of me, no amount of thank's can ever give back the amount of time, patience, and energy you've given me. For that, I call you all friends, family, and people to aspire to become. For the next few months, I know I will be inactive. However, when I return from my study abroad, expect a new Saturn.
That is why I love vVv Gaming. That is why I am proud to be a vVv Member. And that is why vVv Gaming is the best fucking gaming community in the world.
vVv deathsgrasp reacted to vVv Bagzli in Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!
Have you wondered as of late why people do some of the things they do? Take me for instance, I have a well-paid job for my age and work experience. There is a full career ahead of me. I also have a very specific set of tools within my belt that would allow me to join any community on the internet that I wish and yet I choose to stick with vVv Gaming. Why?
The answer to this question is actually rather simple, it is one word that was spoken to me a few days ago by vVv JasonParadise. Roots. He told me, you’ve got to remember your roots. Whether I have realized this just a few days ago or have known it all along, the truth stands. The force that drives me to lead vVv Gaming is that I want to give back the opportunities to those around me that have been given to me. I want the place that has started it all for me be the place that starts it all for you.
vVv Gaming has had many talented individuals pass through. If you take our owners, for instance, vVv LordJerith, vVv Doomhammer, and vVv RobZGod, they have started their gaming careers at vVv Gaming. They are now at Wargaming.net, and previously Riot Games. Heck vVv Lord Jerith doesn’t just work there now, he is an executive! To me that is incredible, to me that is inspiring and to be fully honest, I’m a little envious that they were able to do so much with vVv Gaming that it lead their life on a path to what I am considering a paradise. Even more amazing I find is that they still find time in the day to offer me advice and guidance when I need it.
We have had individuals start their careers at vVv Gaming and end up at Riot, Ubisoft, Curse, Naughty Dog, and even on the main stage of RLCS! Looking at Liefx and Lawler, I cannot be more proud of these two amazing individuals, who started their casting career with Season 2 of Supersonic Series and are now casting on the biggest stage Rocket League has to offer. It really makes me happy to hear stories like this.
I can go on for few pages as to why vVv Gaming is awesome, I can talk about how the leadership opportunities given to me here have helped me reach the potential of what I am capable of. I can tell you about an angry kid who lashed out at his clanmates over stupidest of things because he did not know how to handle pointless drama in an online gaming guild. This angry kid is by no means perfect today, he is a grown man who, like all of us, has a lot of learning and growing up to do. However, thanks to the guidance he has acquired within vVv gaming, he has learned many great qualities that come with being a leader. He also has a message for you all and I would be honored if you would pay close attention to what he has to say:
Each person is good at something, in fact, everyone is good at more than just one thing. It sometimes takes the right environment to bring those skills to light. It can take a lot of encouragement, friendship, and hard work to show the world your true potential. I have found mine thanks to the opportunities and support given to me here at vVv Gaming. As such I would like to help you find yours. There are mentors here who will help you learn, who will help you get on the right path. There are also numerous individuals here who just want to be your friends, because after all, what are gaming communities if not a group of friends who share common interests and are there for each other through the good and through the bad.
Why should you join vVv Gaming? To better yourself and people around you. To make friends for life and to create an environment that will live on to help future generations find their talents and survive in the cruel world that we know as the Internet.
I am vVv Bagzli, a proud member of vVv Gaming, and I urge you to not sell yourself short. To not allow others tell you that you can’t do it. If you have a passion for gaming and if you want to fill your belts with tools that we can offer, then hop in our Discord and chat with us. Tell us that you want to get involved, tell us what you are passionate about and then if you are ready to put in the hard work, we will help you thrive.

This thread hasn't been active since October xD. I think everyone realized "Oh yeah, finally a GoW for PC" turned into "Oh yeah, they made a GoW for Xbox and threw in a PC port because that's where everyone's at with no intention of taking it anywhere."

How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
Been playing Rocket League with Death for a couple months. Actually I met him when I was a applicant. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
I wasnt so hot at Rocket League when I joined the community so I was excited to play with anyone better than me. Death was easy to get along with and will play with anyone so I enjoyed his company. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
The other week I did a Viewer Games Stream and he joined, we played Turtle only game play and that was hilarious to play. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
He is always in discord waiting for people to join in and play with him. Very friendly guy too. How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
Post on the forums and attend more of our tournaments. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
Well he is in the military so I believe his has what takes to bring some new talent and ideas to the table.

If you could be anything/anyone in the world! What would it be? Job, Trade with person, or trade to be something. i would say a literal gaming potato but i already am that... soooo... i would say an undercover lottery winner... that way i wouldn't have to work my ass off like i do now and i could just invest into stocks and maybe a company or 2 then id just move into probably sub 2k square foot house and pretend i work for a bank... id do all the research and maybe even take a class or 2 just so i can use it in social situations while i secretly don't do shit all day... might even get a minimum wage part time job or something just to start on another cover if i get bored (plumber, electrician , janitor etc)... probably change my name just to be safe... im a man of simple tastes and manage money well so i think that would be enough to entertain me...
vVv deathsgrasp got a reaction from vVv Saturn in application - deathsgrasp24
yea im active duty national guard.... which basically means i get deployed just as much as active military but the difference is i only do 1 weekend a month for training and 2-3 weeks over the summer as apposed to active military does it as an every day job.... if that makes sense.... thats why i have a real job and not just military stuff all the time XD ill try to keep checking this if anyone else has questions!
if you are familiar with army active reserves then its just like that
