      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.

Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!

4 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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!

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.
