      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.

      New Supersonic Series Start Time   10/17/2016

      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. It's ADL time again! We're excited to announce that Season 8 starts February 19th and we will be playing every Sunday and Friday at 9pm EST (6pm PST). Once again, we've made some changes to this season but I think this will make everyone much happier! Let's just say that the theme of this season is SIMPLE!... literally. Things were just getting too complicated for everyone involved and it was sometimes hard to understand what was happening and why. Now everything will be easier for everyone! Jump past the Quick Info to get the summary of the changes!! How the Amateur Draft League works (read if you're new!): Show up in TeamSpeak a little before 9pm EST on Sunday or Friday (about 10-15 minutes works). Once in TeamSpeak, right click your name, click "Change Description", enter your Summoner Name, Solo Q Rank, and the Top 3 positions that you would like to play (or a position you absolutely cannot play), then "OK". You will move into the channel that correlates with your current Solo Q rank under Skill Sorting Hat (if you're currently unranked, go based off of what you were last season). The highest ranked players that show up that night are deemed team captain for THAT NIGHT ONLY. Team Captains will begin drafting their team out of the remaining players (dodge-ball style picking, pick order is under rules). People who are picked will be automatically moved into their team's channel. Once teams are drafted, you will play a total of TWO GAMES. After a game, the winners of the match will move into the same channel as the opposing team for a feedback session. Each game is against a DIFFERENT TEAM. Once you're done with BOTH games and your feedback sessions, you're welcome to leave, start inhouses, find someone to Duo Q with, etc. You can attend any night you want; you're not required to follow any type of schedule. If you show up to play, you must play both of your games. All you have to do to play is show up, you don't have to sign up anywhere or do anything beforehand. You must be level 30 and have at least 16 champions (NA only). There is no minimum Solo Q rank requirement. Have questions? Hit up vVv Medusa or vVv Organicbear! Quick Info: TeamSpeak Server: ts65.gameservers.com:9222 (NO PASSWORD) Click Here to Learn How to set up TeamSpeak Start Time: 9 PM EST/6 PM PST every Friday and Sunday Changes based on your suggestions: Scoring system moved from a complex ELO system to a simplified Win-Percentage-based system. One of the things you guys asked for was for us to simplify the scoring system. The ELO system was confusing and made it so it was difficult to understand what was happening with your scores since everything was calculated behind the scenes. As a result, this season we'll be moving back to a spreadsheet system and simplifying the scoring system to Win/Loss percentage. Your score will be displayed in a simple google docs spreadsheet so that you can look it up easily and see all the math involved in calculating your score. Adding an attendance-based bonus to remove the "hidden penalty" of showing up more often and having a lower win rate than someone who shows up a few times and has a win streak Additionally, you guys said that you didn't like that someone could come in at the end of the season and get a lucky 8-2 streak and end up placing higher than people who were showing up the majority of the season and doing relatively well. We agree that this is something that should be addressed, and although it's highly unlikely for someone to go on an 8-2 streak based on luck alone, we are adding a bonus multiplier to help those who show up to more games throughout the season. This will remove the unintended penalty for those showing up to more nights and trending toward a 50% winrate and prevent someone from showing up and doing well late in the season to sweep an easy victory, unless it's truly deserved. If you DO manage to go 8-2, you will still end the season with a relatively high win rate, but those who attend more nights and manage to perform at an above average level will still end up with a greater score. We will no longer be having a "Finals Night" to determine our winners; the winners of the ADL season will be determined by the end of the season Win/Loss Percentage after the attendance bonus is factored in. Since we no longer have ADL ELO, we will no longer have the Champion/Challenger Tiers. If we have 40+ people on a night, we will have the highest ranked players do a separate draft from the lower ranked players. This will make drafting go faster as well as help with the "my lane opponent is diamond while I'm in silver" problem. The 20 highest ranked players will be moved into Group A while the other 20 players will be in Group B then drafting will resume as normal. We will have 3 groups if we have 81-120 players. So the maximum a group will ever hold is 40 people. Always be sure to give vVv Organicbear or vVv Medusa any feedback you have! We can always make things better or easier, we just need to be informed that something needs changing! A link to our profiles containing our contact information are at the bottom of this post. Feel free to contact us at any time in any way that is most convenient for you (including chatting on TeamSpeak). How to Participate: Literally all you have to do is show up! Get into our TeamSpeak BEFORE 9pm EST (10-15 minutes), go into the channel Amateur Draft League, then wait for further instruction! NOTE: Anyone can play, regardless of Solo Q rank, as long as you're Level 30 and have at least 16 champions to participate in Custom Tournament Draft. Official ADL Rules: Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the rules! You are expected to know the rules before you join TeamSpeak and participate!!! Are you excited about the beginning of Season 8? Should we have made any other changes? Be sure to communicate with us!! If you have questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions, contact Organicbear or Medusa and we'll be more than happy to help you <3 (srsly, with anything at all... except math). See you on February 19th at 9pm EST (6pm PST) for the Amateur Draft League!! ADL Staff: vVv Organicbear vVv Medusa
  2. After an impressive showing at the second WellPlayed Qualifier, vVv LoL came up just short of qualifying for promotion by grabbing the third place spot in Qualifier #2 behind Quantic Gaming and The Walking Zed. Due to an unfortunate disbanding of Napkins in Disguise, who qualified in the first qualifier, vVv Gaming was given the spot and are now moving on to the Spring Promotion Challenger Stage! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3MzPnDhiJU vVv LoL stormed through the group stages of Qualifier #2 going 3-0 against Team LoLPro, SouLControL, and Denial eSports. In the qualifying round vVv LoL ended up falling to The Walking Zed 2 - 1 in a closely contested series, securing them a 3rd place spot. Now in the Challenger Stage vVv LoL will have their toughest competition yet as they fight for one of three spots for the Promotion Stage. The team will play a series of group stage matches from December 6th to December 8th to determine, a total of 5 group stage games will be played. The group stages consist of up and coming challenger teams like Complexity Gaming, To Be Determined(team name), Cognitive Gaming, The Walking Zed, and Quantic Gaming. The Promotion Stage teams are all the teams that were relegated in the last LCS split; Curse Gaming, Team Coast, and Velocity eSports. vVv LoL will kick off their first match of group stages against rival Quantic Gaming at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific time this Friday, December 6th 2013. The stream will be live on the WellPlayed Twitch Channel the entire weekend. Be sure to head to the Leaguepedia page that is linked below for a full schedule of times. This thread will be continuously updated throughout the weekend.

  11. Hey guys! Mooch here throwing out some new ideas to help our community grow. After having a chat with Chrono we have decided on a couple of opportunities for the community that we think we can really strive to achieve, but we need your input first! One of the more recent ideas that we have come up with was a little bit of a change to our in-house structure but only for Tuesdays. We want to gather 4 teams together, from the community AND applicants, to participate in a little mini tournament for a prize pool that has yet to be determined. These four teams will play together in a best of 3 show match, on the Tuesdays that I mentioned earlier with the winner moving on to a "Grand Final" to play for the aforementioned prize pool. We want you guys to be able to play for something, get a team-like competitive feel, have fun together as a community, and to get behind you favorite community team! So let us know what you guys think! If you have any suggestions OR if you want to be on one of the four teams, let us know below! Again, this is for existing community members AND applicants!
  12. Summer LCS Relegation Review!

    The North American LCS Summer Relegation tournament concluded this past weekend with some amazing games. There were two challenger teams that made their way into the LCS, while two of the more noticeable and popular LCS teams remained in the summer split. Quantic Gaming, Velocity eSports, Counter Logic Gaming, and Team Dignitas will all be in the LCS Summer Split along with Team Solo Mid, Good Game University, Vulcan Techbargains, and Curse Gaming. Here is a recap of this past weekends exciting results. Quantic Gaming Quantic Gaming came out on fire and they never cooled down throughout the entire weekend. Quantic showed up in the Challenger round beating a well rounded Team Astral Poke handily giving them a quick 2-0 loss and their dreams dashed in games that lasted no more than 25 minutes. In the Promotion round Quantic did not let up, beating a compLexity team that had been coming on strong towards the end of the Spring split, 3-0 in 3 games that again were quick and ended under 30 minutes. The most impressive part about Quantic Gaming was how dominant they looked as a team, even better than some of the LCS teams that were not bottom four. Quantic Gaming's jungler was the only person the entire weekend that did not have a single death in 5 games. William "Meteos" Hartman had a mind blowing KDA of 45 at the end of the weekend, playing junglers such as Zac and Elise (he played Zac 4 times that weekend) made his presence known in the lanes early and often with ganks that led his team to victory. It was not all Meteos though, the entire Quantic squad played amazingly. The squad boasted an average combined KDA of 15.3, while Spring Split Champions TSM only had a combined KDA of 4.7. The team gathered an average of 1.8k gold per min with an average gold total of 44k per game. Quantic Gaming looks to be one of the more fierce competitors going into the Summer Split, and I sure look forward to seeing what they can bring to the table next split. Velocity eSports Velocity eSports did not have as commanding of a weekend as Quantic had, but they definitely showed they are going to be a tough competitor going into the next split. In the Challenger round, Velocity started off shaky, losing their first game to Team Salad Bar. The team bounced back though, dominating the next two games against TSB to secure their spot in the promotional round. In the only series in the promotion round to go to 5 games, Velocity vs Team MRN proved to be an instant classic. The wins went back and forth, Team MRN securing the first game win behind impressive play by Nientonsoh boasting a 15/1/3 KDA at the end of the game. Velocity fired right back in game one as they threw the meta book and everything you have ever known about League of Legends out the window as Velocity played Ezreal jungle, with a Janna mid lane. The "double support, double ADC" push comp proved to be too much to handle for Team MRN as Velocity jungler Nk Inc showed that Ezreal's utility can be used for more than just laning as he pulled off an ever so smooth Arcane Shift, Smite Dragon steal, Flash out on an early dragon attempt by Team MRN. Split pushing with Janna and good team fighting secured Velocity eSports the game two victory. Game 3 was an epic clash of two teams not wanting to see their last moments of LCS promise be dashed before them as this game would thrust the losing team one loss away from the dream ending. Team MRN started off winning most of the team fights but a Baron grab by Velocity secured the next fight for them an inhibitor. Velocity secured a second Baron attempt rather easily as Super Minions were rushing towards MRN's base, forcing them to defend. As Velocity went for the next fight Nientonsoh had other plans picking up a double kill to that forced Velocity out of the base, relinquishing an inhibitor in MRN's favor. As MRN was looking for the killing blow Velocity's support, Evaniskus, held off a seemingly impossible push from MRN by getting a kill and forcing the team to fall back as Velocity respawned and immediately shot down mid lane for victory. However, Nientonsoh had other plans as he cancelled his recall and went in for the last nexus turret and the nexus itself in a thrilling base race that Team MRN has been known for. With 75hp left, Nientonsoh secured the victory for Team MRN and in the words of LCS caster "Kobe" put it, "Velocity just got MRNed". Despite the heart wrenching loss for Velocity they never gave up the passion, having their dreams be so close within their grasp, taking the next two games off of Team MRN and making their way into the LCS Summer Split. Team Dignitas One of the story lines that everyone wanted to see happened as Team Summon faced off against Team Dignitas in the promotion round of the LCS tournament Locust went up against his former team, but unfortunately could not pull it through and was relegated out of the tournament. Dignitas was a team that had extremely high expectations in the Spring Split. Not only that though, but they were number two in the standings up until the last week when they dropped down to number three. Losing in the first round of the Spring Split playoffs to GGU forced them into the Summer LCS Relegation tournament. Facing a very strong Team Summon squad, Dignitas looked to be back to their old form. Using such champions such as Rammus and Evelynn secured them the series in four games. Alberto "Crumbzz" Rengifo played brilliantly in the four games as he brought out the jungle Rammus and played it to perfection, securing the match MVP with his stellar played that through Team Summon into a tilt after game three. William "Scarra" Li also had an amazing performance on his Evelynn, going 11/1/12 in the first game of the series. Dignitas played like the team they showed they were throughout the first 9 weeks of the Spring Split. Counter Logic Gaming The other story line that everyone wanted to see, bigfatlp and Azure Cats going up against CLG, the team that he was on since the creation. CLG swept Azure Cats with a 3-0 series score that put CLG back into the LCS. Austin "Link" Shin boasted an almost Meteos-like KDA, having a very impressive 34 KDA, which helped propel his team in the series. Strong play by Aphromoo's Blitzcrank in game two set the tone for a very convincing CLG victory, as well as Doublelift displaying that he is meant to be the NA All-Star pick. HotShotGG went to his old standby as he brought back out his top lane Nidalee which proved to be useful in game one, and playing another non-tank champion in Diana in game two, getting rid of their old "protect the Doublelift" comp. All in all CLG had a very solid display against Azure Cats and it looks like CLG will stay together for a long time, so no worries CLG fans, your team is safe. The teams for the Summer Split are as follows: - TSM - Curse Gaming - GGU - Vulcan - Dignitas - CLG - Quantic Gaming - Velocity eSports So there you have it folks, your North American Summer LCS Split! It is looking to be an exciting set up for the next split, I know that I am really excited for it!

  21. We now know seven of the eight teams that have qualified for Season 3 and will play in the North American League of Legends Championship Series. Four teams still remain in the offline qualifier, but only one can receive a contract from Riot Games this Sunday. Three of these teams will have their dreams denied for at LEAST the next six months. Unfortunately, for the majority of players remaining, the harsh realization is that this might be their last chance to become a professional League of Legends player. Let’s take a look at the competitors facing off later today and what the keys to success are for each team. Dirtnap Gaming Overall record this weekend: 3-2 Champions Selected: Important Champions to Watch For: Jayce - 100% (2-0) Maokai - 66% (2-1) Sona - 66% (2-1) Graves - 60% (3-2) Olaf - 50% (2-2) Keys to Success for DNG against Azure: Dirt Nap has excelled this weekend when Cris is able to make plays. Get Cris early kills against Azure and apply early pressure. PR0LLY succeeded with Jayce in early matches. Expect him to pull out AD Casters instead of picks like Kassadin or Kayle. Graves has been played in all five DNG matches. As that ecKo feels most comfortable with Graves, expect him to stick with what works. - Azure Gaming Overall record this weekend: 2-3 Champions Selected: Important Champions to Watch For: Katarina 100% (1-0) Nunu - 66% (2-1) Cho'Gath - 50% (1-1) Keys to Success for Azure against DNG: Azure was shut down vs. Curse Gaming. Azure needs to pick champions they are comfortable with and play safe and standard. There is a lot of momentum against them. Wait for the opponent to make a mistake and capitalize to gain momentum back on their side. Shut down Cris. DNG rocked through the group stage when Cris was able to make early plays. Never allow him to get to that point. While it might seem like an odd move, a ban of Graves against DNG could potentially throw them off their game. ecKo has only played Graves at this event and it could remove him from his comfort zone. - Meat Playground Overall record this weekend: 2-3 Champions Selected: Important Champions to Watch For: Sona - 66% (2-1) Vladimir - 50% (1-1) Malphite - 33% (1-2) Keys to Success for Meat Playground against MRN: If xHazzard gets his hands on Malphite, make sure to land those Unstopable Forces! We saw just how much of a game changer he could be when Meat Playground eliminated 1 Trick Ponies. xHazzard hasn't had the same luck since. If Malphite is banned, xHazzard is also comfortable on Nidalee. Pick her up and split push to a win. Make Team MRN uncomfortable and never underestimate them. MRN was able to base race a win already this weekend. Meat Playground needs to contain any potential tricks that MRN could have up their sleeves. - Team MRN Overall record this weekend: 2-2 Champions Selected: Important Champions to Watch For: ? Keys to Success for Meat Playground against MRN: Stay unpredictable! Team MRN has played four games this weekend and they have chosen 19 different champions. The only champion that has been played twice was Cho'Gath. With this spread of champions, the team cannot be banned out. Keep using a variety of champs and keep MP guessing as to what they will do. Use nonstandard play to throw Meat Playground off their game. The base race vs. Cloud9 took everyone by surprise. Pulling out Urgot, the only time in the tournament thus far, was a shock against Azure. If MP cannot react to the off the wall strategies of MRN, this team could be one step closer to a Season 3 contract. Tune in live at 2:00pm EST as the final day of action unfolds!

  22. For 16 of the best League of Legends teams in North America, this weekend could potentially be the most important tournament in their eSports careers. The S3 Qualifier LAN event this weekend in Los Angeles is a culmination of hard work for those attempting to break into the League of Legends Championship Series. So much is on the line for these 80 individuals as that the top five placing teams will secure a salary for Season 3. Additionally, teams that qualify are one step closer to the glory of competing for the eventual LCS crown! Which teams will join TSM, Team Dignitas, and CLG to play in Season 3? Let's take a look at the competition! Group A Curse Gaming The Brunch Club Pulse eSports compLexity Academy The Storylines: Did Curse make the right choice in putting Elementz back on support? Where does the team go from here if they fail to qualify for Season 3? Considered to be one of the strongest teams in this tournament, the pressure is on Curse Gaming to win big at this event. The Brunch Club, Formerly known as She Said She Was Level 18, has three long time members of the team Chuuper's Troopers on the roster. With the addition of Lautemortis from former Team Legion and Brunch Ü, this is a strong lineup with great team chemistry. Unfortunately, the lineup doesn't have the best history of performing well during events. Can this team overcome performance anxiety and break into Season 3? Pulse eSports is a team comprised of former Absolute Legends players and two newcomers. Without as much public practice in the time leading up to this event, can the former aL squad mates use their experience to carry the team to victory? The compLexity Academy team is the biggest underdog in this entire event. Recently swapping out Top Laner The Cpt America for Grim Samurai, the team is still a fairly new roster. Will the team be able to overcome juggernauts such as Curse Gaming and make it out of Group A? The Keys to Group A: Curse needs to exploit the inexperience of the other teams in the group. Curse is by far the most tournament ready team in Group A. If they can put pressure on their opponents early, they will able to secure a berth into Season 3. The other competitors in this group need to catch each other off guard. Throw something at Curse that the team will not expect. Use champions in roles that "break the meta". Don't underestimate the coL Academy team. Complexity has a long history in eSports and they see something special in this team. Watch out, the compLexity crew could have unexpected tricks up their sleeves. Predictions: Expect the winner of this group to at LEAST make it into the top 5. This could be the group that provides two qualifiers. Brunch Club and Pulse will both have strong showings. My expectations: Curse and The Brunch Club make it out of Group A. Group B Team FeaR Good Game University Epik Gamer Team TowerDiveTV The Storylines: After a disappointing 13th/16th place finish at IPL5, how does Team FeaR do after the departure of Aphromoo? Will Zuna and "Benny" be able to lead Team FeaR to victory? Some pros speculate that the team has actually grown stronger since Aphromoo left to join CLG. Can FeaR prove this to be true? Good Game University has a lot to prove in this event. While the team does have some great tournament placings in the last year under their former banner of Team Dynamic, players such as Shiphtur and I am Anjo are brand new to the Squad. Additionally, the team finished in the same spot as Team FeaR at IPL5. Can this team of young players earn validation by making it into Season 3? Epik Gamer reformed specifically for the Season 3 qualifier. Will this team have the necessary chemistry to compete with FeaR and GGU? Additionally, if the team does fail to qualify for Season 3, will the roster stay together? TowerDiveTV recently won Go4LoL #92 , but little else is public about the team. Will these underdogs be able to scrap through the potential hardest group and into Season 3? The Keys to Group B: This group is arguably the hardest road into Season 3. Remember, one loss is not the end! Teams in this group must keep their heads in the game and realize this group will be an all out struggle. The teams that stay the most focused will move on to the bracket stage. Predictions: Close games between FeaR, GGU, and Epik will make this the group to watch out for this weekend. These games will be good! My expectations: the standings will be near tied after group play with Epik or FeaR finishing in first place for the division. Group C Meat Playground Dirt Nap Gaming 1 Trick Ponies Falafel Gaming The Storylines: Meat Playground has a history of placing towards the lower end of results during LAN events. With the pressure on, could this be the event that MP changes things for the better and shows a substantial performance? Dirt Nap Gaming was reformed in November 2012. Featuring former vVv Gaming player Cris and members of 4not, this is a team that has a lot of potential. The Dirt Nap lineup won back to back Go4LoL events (#90 and #91) in December of 2012. Can they repeat their success in an offline environment? 1 Trick Ponies may be one of the most interesting teams to watch out for at this event. Managed by Angel Vigil, formerly of Dirt Nap Gaming, 1TP is a collection of five friends from Southern California. As that friendship is a huge advantage in competitive team games, could the chemistry of this team help propel them into Season 3? Falafel Gaming is headed up by popular Jungler Azingy. While the team has no noteworthy accomplishments to date, could the unpredictability of what this team brings help them blindside other members of Group C? The Keys to Group C: While no team stands out as an overwhelming favorite to win Group C, Meat Playground and Dirt Nap are both experienced teams. Finding a way to make them uneasy and play from behind is a must for 1TP and Falafel. With so little known about what Falafel is bringing to the table, play cautious. Predictions: 1TP is made up of former Dirt Nap Gaming players. Expect the Dirt Nap vs. 1TP match to be an exciting grudge match. My expectations: The winner of 1TP vs. Dirt Nap goes on to win the group and will finish in the top four at the tournament. Group D Azure Gaming Cloud 9 Team MRN The Salad Bar The Storylines: Azure Gaming may be the 4th seed, but the roster has recently changed and the team doesn't have as much practice as Cloud 9. Azure may arguably be the highest seeded underdog in the tournament. Will Azure make it out of Group D or will they be left feeling blue as they are eliminated from Season 3 contention? Cloud 9, formerly Quantic Gaming/Orb, is at first glance a clear cut favorite in this Group. While the team has had an unstable road over the last few months with sponsors, can the team recover and finally gain stability by qualifying for Season 3? Marn, formerly of Evil Geniuses and a mainstay in the fighting game scene, recently reformed his League of Legends team in the closing days of 2012. While the team has no accomplishments to speak of, they do have some impressive players on the team. Is this enough?Managed by DJ Wheat, can Team MRN continue their growth with a berth into Season 3? The Salad Bar is another unpredictable squad looking to play the role of underdog in this tournament. The Salad Bar has won the two most recent Go4LoL tournaments and looks to continue their momentum into Season 3. Could this be the team that wins Group D? The Keys to Group D: Group D is filled with unpredictability. Be prepared for anything. With many teams in this group having limited scrims before the event, team fights and synergy could be a bit sloppy. Teams that group together early will have an advantage. Predictions: Cloud 9 is the team to beat. Expect them to show up strong during the opening rounds of this weekend. My expectations: Cloud 9 and Team MRN move on to the bracket round. - Now it's your turn to discuss! Who do you think will move on from the group stage and into the bracket round?
