      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.

      Please come to watch and show your support!

  1. I see myself adding value by bringing professionalism and skill to the community, I would love to teach players my skills and also learn from others and help anyone way in shape or form that I can. I am currently getting internet installed into my new house, but unfortunately that takes a while, I do happen to get free unlimited data on the weekend by a mobile provider so I am up for games on Saturday/Sunday which is very cool.
  2. I used to be very Competitve back in Black Ops where the AK-Master profile picture came from, but I have been competitive in other titles including Halo, Call of Duty, Guild Wars, Warcraft, Wolfenstian Enemy Territory, Rainbow Six Vegas and many others. I left because I started work and was very busy so I have a break from gaming, I was involded in the Modern Warfare 3 team with BizKit and others and I am looking to come back to CSGO and to rock. Guild Wars, Halo , Call of Duty, Wolfenstian Enemy Territory, Rainbow Six Vegas, Warcraft and many others.
  3. Name: Ryan Keys Age (minimum 16): 21 Location: Australia Steam Name: TheRyab How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? I have known vVv Gaming for years now and I have meet many members over the years like LordJerith, BizKit, RobZGod, Doomhammer and many others that I have forgot, haven't been on the website in a long time. Who do you know currently in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? Refer to above. What do you hope to get out of being a member of vVv Gaming? I am looking to joining an active community that I can strive to becoming more a community member again and also looking to spark up my competitive side . What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Karate usually. Do you watch replays and/or pro player streams? How often? No I do not watch pro player streams or replies I do however watch tournaments that pro player participate in . Who is your favorite competitive Counter Strke player? Why? It would have to be any Australian professional player as I like to cheer on my home country or JW from Fnatic due to his skill and great playstyle. What is your favorite competitive Counter Strike team? Why? NiP or Fnatic as I have been a fan since 1.6 days I seem to remember the legendary NiP and Fnatic have took the world by storm in CSGO. What is your favorite Counter Strike Map? Why? Dust 2 because it is the easiest to know callouts and get around, other then that I like Aztec as it seems enjoyable, only played it once and I enjoyed every minute of it. What is your MM rank? Due to not been playing for a while I am Gold Nova 1 but if I get back to my prime I will be past that. What was the moment or play you are most proud of while playing CSGO? What moment or play are you most embarrassed about? My proud moments are when I either doing a clutch or I am the last player left and I win the round for my team also I started using M4A4 more and that help me alot. Worst moment will be chocking on the easiest kill or walking infront of people and getting shot in the head. When you play CSGO, do you primarily play to win and improve, or do you primarily play to have fun and don't care much about learning or winning? I play to win and improve but I enjoy playing for fun, you shouldn't take a game overboard because you want to be the best, if you look at all the professional teams out there, they play cause they enjoy it and that they can play at a top level. What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have? I got years under my belt for various games. Have you attended any major tournaments (Cevo, ESEA, ESL)? No they don't have that in the Land Down Under. How often do you participate in online tournaments (Cevo, ESEA)? Due to not having internet, I have not signed up yet. What type of organization are you looking to join? What would the ideal environment look like for you? I like to join up to a environment where people play for fun rather then showing off and trying to become the best and a place that I could call a "Family".
  4. Well normally being professional and sounding professional are normally done by top teams, they were not saying they were not going accept you, they were saying you didn't put any effort or research into vVv Gaming before applying. Just as you know alot of the top organisations or gaming communities will not pick you up if you get upset over someone asking you to act professional, just cause you are a top tier doesn't mean that anyone will pick you up as they like to respect their branding in a professional manner. Just think before you do anything.
  5. Congratulations SugarBear!
