      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.

vVv Ability at MLG Columbus!

Written by vVv Apollo

"What an event! Another year, another Columbus!! Tis the tale of vVv Ability at this year’s MLG Winter Championship 2012! A little background on the team, Xploits, FragThat, Expozur, and I all live within an hour of each other, Xploits and Expozur are closer, while PappaCat is from Kentucky. PapaCat flew up Wednesday for some Halo/Floor Hockey boot camp! When Friday afternoon rolled around the team had assembled in Columbus Ohio, getting ready to tackle the weekend.

Friday started really late for the Halo Free-For-All, which would determine the teams seeds for the event. This was taken with mixed emotions for much of the community. Many of the “professional” halo players had not played split screen, where you are sharing a TV and Xbox with one of your teammates or another person, since the very beginning of Halo 3, some maybe longer. There were several pros who had been knocked out early on and were blaming the new equipment and the split screen. Ability had a decent amount of success. PappaCat, unfortuantely, was knocked out in the first round, and FragThat and Xploits were knocked out in Round 2 of the FFA. Expozur made it the furthest, going to the fourth round and having it come down to the wire, but he had a few bad spawns and some bad luck, which ultimately knocked him out in Round 4.

vVv Ability playing MLG Columbus

We left the venue late and ended up ordering some Domino's to the hotel room around 1am. Where we chilled, ate, and generally messed around until getting some much needed sleep. Saturday morning rolled around and we overslept by a small bit. Wanting to be up and at the venue around 8:30, we ended up sleeping until then, only to get up and grab a quick bagel from the continental breakfast and running down to the venue. We arrived at the venue around 9, only to find out that they pushed the start time back to 11am! At least this gave us some great warm up games. We ended up going 7-0 in warm-ups against a few semi-decent teams. From the Halo FFA tournament the day before, we ended up as the 82nd seed, which by no means was a bad thing. If we could not have a top 16 seed, then we defiantly wanted a middle of the road seed because it would give both a challenging bracket, but reduce the chance that we played a top 16 team until later in the bracket.

Ability managed to secure a bye in Winners Round 1, which gave us even more down time which was both a good thing and bad thing. It both gave us time to relax and grab some lunch, but it also made us a bit anxious to play. In Winners Round 2, we played the team GodSpeed, whom we defeated 2-0. In winners Round 3, we played the team Evolution, which we also defeated 2-0. In winners round 4 we played one of the top seeded teams from the Free For All, 15th seed UoR Stay Dreaming. They won the first game, but we rallied and defeated them 2-1! Next we would face the only professional team in our bracket, Carbon, which consisted of Ryanoob, Blaze, Assault and Snipedown a team that would later move on to take 7th in the entire tournament. The winner of this game would place within the top 12. However, we were defeated pretty soundly in a 3-0 loss for it was the first round in the best of 5 series. We were disappointed, but we kept our heads held high because if we lost, we wanted it to be to a professional team that would go far in the tournament. We headed back to the hotel to get a good night rest.

vVv Ability after winning a match

Sunday morning we woke up early and grab breakfast to head to the venue. We arrived to a nearly empty venue. We were to play the European team, Apex Devastation, for top 16 and professional status. We played hard, but ended up losing 3-0, placing within the top 24. While Devastation continued on to place top 16, by being defeated next round by another professional team, Warriors. After the defeat, it definitely shook us. We were hoping to outplace the 21st placing that we got in Anaheim, only to place in the top 24, with no definitely seeding, due to there not being any consolation matches.

As a team, we are ready for the next event, though we will be losing Kevin (FragThat) who is going to serve our nation by going to boot-camp. He will always be a part of Ability. If you see him on twitter or the forums, make sure you thank him for going. We plan to go into the next event even more prepared and wearing our three V's!"
