      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.

      vVv Gaming Presents: ADL Season 10!   08/12/2016

      TL;DR: Season 10 of the vVv Gaming LoL ADL begins Friday, August 19th @9pm EST/6pm PST! Discord Info              Just be on Discord at the check in time and have a level 30 with at least 16 champions to participate! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ vVv Gaming has had a long history in competitive e-sports; and, while the LCS may be a long way off for the organization, we can still participate in semi-competitive LoL activities as a community. The ADL has, and will continue to be, our main way to achieve this. However, let’s be honest, the ADL has had a rough time over the past few seasons. This comes from both participant enjoyment, as well as coordination and structuring of the event as a whole. While I do not plan on completely fixing the system from the start, I do believe that there are some short (and long) term changes that can make the experience better for everyone: ·         We are keeping participation points for this season, as well as the Elo ranking system used for previous seasons. ·         We will have people recruiting more in the game from the community, and attempt to bring more LoL community members to the discord that we feel would be good for the vVv community. ·         We will be implementing new rules for the drafting phase. Some of these rules will be introduced as the season progresses and are covered below. ·         Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is no information regarding a prize. If a viable prize method/opportunity comes about in the future, current season winners will be rewarded retroactively. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rules and Details (Read if new):          Nights will consist of two matches per night. You must be able to attend both games (Don’t be that guy, play it out).          Be on Discord NO LATER than 8:55pm EST/5:55pm PST for Check In. This will be slowly changed to 8:45pm EST as the season progresses. We want the drafting phase this season to be as smooth as possible.  We want to give people time to announce their roles before hand.           Check in will happen in the ADL Check In Discord Channel BEFORE players move to the regular ADL channel, and at 9:00pm EST people will move to channels matching their Dynamic Queue rank. Missing the check-in deadline means that you will not be able to participate that night and will not receive a participation point.          During the Check In, participants will announce their top 3 preferred roles for a staff member to place in a spreadsheet (Discord does not allow for your descriptions to be changed, that I am aware of).          Have a level 30 account, at least 16 champions, and be ready to have some fun!          Additional Questions? Contact vVv Eternal or vVv Yui        The ADL will last for 10 weeks this season, there will then be a three-week break before the next season starts (Currently scheduled for Nov. 11, 2016).        Cheating or Smurfing in the ADL is not permitted. Anyone caught doing either of these this will be suspended from the ADL, no exceptions. Cheating will result in a permanent suspension, smurfing will result in a 5-week suspension.  New Drafting Process: So, in previous seasons of the ADL, the highest ranked players were given the priority in being team captains for any given night. While this was not a bad system, it did leave some players feeling left out over the course of the season. That being said: ·         Highest ranked players will no longer be automatically chosen as the team captain. ·         Team captains will be chosen by the number of participation points that a player has (you earn 1 point for each night you attend, REGARDLESS of whether or not you are picked). ·         No player can be captain more than once every 4 weeks (depending on overall participation). ·         The first weekend will have captains from an arbitrary division and lower. So here is my logic (bear with me). With some outlying cases, most of the team captains would pick from highest available skill in a role down, until all of the top players (and a few peoples friends) were picked. I don’t expect this to change at all; however, this allows for both new and lower skill level players and community members, as well as frequent participants, to always have a shot at playing. They also get the benefit of knowing (eventually) in advance that they will be captains. Additional Information: I would like to try and address the speed of the drafting process. For now, the primary way of doing this will be the check-in time; however, if another feasible method is suggested, any changes will be updated in this section. After the Games: ·         Players will join the winning team's discord channel, and all players will be given feedback if they desire it. ·         Players may also provide criticism and suggestions for the ADL. (We are still seeking to improve the event if the community desires it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More Darn Rules ·         Teams will still be matched by alphabetical order of Discord channel for the time being. ·         The winner of the first match will play the winner of the second (both matches are played out simultaneously), and the same goes for the losing teams. ·         The higher team alphabetically will be chosen to be on the blue side for the first game, and the lower team will get blue side when the second game is played. Leaving/AFK: If someone leaves a game for any reason and does not reconnect, they will be given a 2-night suspension from the ADL. The player may appeal the suspension with an ADL Staff member if there was a legitimate reason for the disconnect. However, all appeals must happen at least 24 hours before the next ADL event. You also may only appeal a disconnect once per season. Pausing: Players may pause the game for UP TO 10 minutes if a player on their team is having connection issues. PLAYERS MUST INFORM AN ADL STAFF MEMBER IF A GAME IS PAUSED. If the reason cannot be resolved in 10 minutes, the team whose player disconnected will concede the match. If the enemy team agrees, they may also use their 10-minute pause to give the other team more time. Teams only get two pauses per game. Replacement Players: Player replacement will be handled the same as in previous seasons. A player may be replaced by another player of the same rank or lower, provided both teams agree to the replacement. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So that’s it folks.  Thank you for sticking through the whole announcement, we understand it is somewhat lengthy, however the information had to be provided.  You are now ready for the 10th season of the ADL! If you have any questions feel free to contact vVv Eternal     See you on Friday, August 19th at 8:55pm EST/6:00pm PST!     ADL Staff: vVv Eternal   To join the discussion click here!

vVv.CoD: The Road to MLG Dallas

 

With Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 announced for the MLG Winter Championships and community excitement for the launch of the new title exploding, vVv decided it was time to re-enter the Call of Duty scene. Based on our successes with previous console titles such as Gears of War and Mortal Kombat, our standards were high when it came time to look for a team. Adversity stood out as an exceptional choice. Although not a former pro-team, they were rapidly rising stars on the scene and more importantly, their goals aligned with what is most important to vVv: developing into true eSports professionals and providing an awesome experience for the community.
 

about-us_main_img_2.jpg

 
Adversity's first major Black Ops 2 LAN was at UMG Chicago where they took Top 12, upsetting the fan-favorites of EnVyUs and setting the stage for the team's 2013 season. The team then solidified their roster, acquiring Replays and Realize, and began their search for an organization and partner. Adversity then discovered vVv Gaming, and thus vVv.CoD was born.
 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MySuDD2iZ-w

 
With their eyes on a goal, the team began focused preparation for MLG Dallas, avoiding League Play and concentrating solely on practicing with other pro-teams. With no pressure to grind the ladder, the team competed in several of Major League Gaming's "Pro Scrims," taking out teams such as Thrust, nV, Quantic Gaming, Donut Shop and SoaR with convincing wins. As the qualifiers approached, vVv.CoD stood undefeated on the MLG Stream. Now, the team would need to place Top 12 to secure a seed in the Championship Bracket at Dallas.
 
In the bracket, vVv.CoD took early wins against Aftermath, TEC 1Effort, Team No Sleep and aBnormaL, securing their Top 12 seed without breaking a sweat. Eager to continue their momentum, the team doubled down to improve their seed. In what was their first loss on the MLG Stream, vVv.CoD fell to Team FeaR in triple overtime on CTF Raid. Using the loss as motivation, they stormed through the losers bracket eliminating HeXp Gaming, Donut Shop and Dare, finally losing to Fariko in the Losers Bracket Semi-Finals. The team's dedication and persistence secured them a top 4 seed at MLG Dallas.
 

 

We had a chance to sit down with one of the more outspoken member's of vVv.CoD, vVv Realize, to get his thoughts on the road to MLG Dallas and the competition itself. 
 

Good afternoon Derek, thanks for your time. To start of for the fans who may have just started following you and your team, can you tell me a little about yourself?

No problem, thank's for having me! My name is Derrek Jordan, also known within the eSports Community as "Realize". I am currently a 16 Year old Gamer. I grew up in Deltona, Florida. Growing up, I played many sports such as Football & Basketball, but found love in eSports back in the Black Ops I Season. Ever since then, i've been making a name for myself.

I have to first ask because of how relevant it is in the community right now, what are your initial impression of the patch that Treyarch released? Good or Bad for Dallas?

I honestly feel like this patch was a bad idea. For one they reduced the two main subs in this game which is a huge impact and will affect a lot of situations. For two they released this two days before the most major event of the MLG season. For three Treyarch  took what we asked for and then felt like they needed to fix things that weren't broken.

How prepared do you feel for Dallas? What do you feel is your strongest game-type right now? Why?

I feel very prepared and confident with our team going into Dallas. Our strongest game-type at the moment would definitely be Capture the Flag. Ever since I switched back to a sub we have been a lot more aggressive and it has started to pay off.

Being that this is your first event with a Top 4 seed, how do you feel the team is handling the added pressure and spotlight?

Obviously there is some pressure on myself and the team as a whole but I think we will get past it and we will show up and play our game. We are really focusing on us and we are really ready for this event.

Thoughts on the open bracket? You will most likely have to play the first seed out of open, has that affected you or the team at all?

No, we feel like if we want to win this event or if we want to do well we are going to come across almost every team and we need to be confident and ready to play everyone. We are not going to let stuff like that get to our heads because we feel like it will only come back to bite us in the butt.

You've been with vVv Gaming for just over a month now, what are your initial impressions of the organization?

My honest opinion is I think they are an amazing organization with an amazing purpose. They are huge community based organization and I love it because I can go into the vVv forums and just talk with members. I feel like they want to talk to me and I enjoy it. I couldn't ask for a better organization to be apart of.

I think it's pretty awesome how involved your Dad is with your passion for Call of Duty. When did he first get involved?

He has always known I wanted to get really serious with gaming but he really didn't fully support me until I got onto aDv right after UMG10k and I have been on this team ever since and he now has twitter sits in streams and I believe he enjoys watching and keeping up with the Call of Duty community and he will be at Dallas.

If you could make one change to Black Ops 2 what would it be? Why?

Remove machine pistols. I feel like they take less skill then anything in any cod. I have never enjoyed machine pistols and I truly wish they would take them out.

Excluding your team, what are your Top 4 Predictions for Dallas?

Fariko, coL, UNiTE, ???? 4th is a tossup.

Any final thoughts or mentions?

I would like to thank vVv Gaming for giving us this amazing opportunity to represent them! Also, big shoutouts and Thanks to SteelSeries, my Supporters and my teammates! Without my Supporter's & Teammate's, we wouldn't be in this position! Also, be sure to Follow me on Twitter for updates at the event! @vVv_Realize

 
 
Be sure to tune into the MLG Winter Championships all weekend long where the best North American Call of Duty teams will be competing. With a total prize pool of $50,000, the top eight teams will also earn a paid trip to Hollywood to compete for $1,000,000 in the Call of Duty Championships!
