vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv LordJerith in CHOP LIST APRIL '20
I think what Bagzli says is the right approach. It's worth reaching out to people and asking before just chopping. I suggested yesterday to maybe put a Facebook post and e-mail letting members know that there is new leadership and that the new leadership want to understand what we could offer them to come back.
At this point, dialogue is important. It doesn't mean you can't cut them, I am just suggesting of all the things to do,, you want more dialogue with people, not less.
vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv Hoagie in CDL Hardpoint Map Overview/Locations
Azhir Cave (Preferred Start Team: Allegiance) If you start on bad side your first goal should be to flip the spawns by rotating through hill locations 3--->5 and to the back building. You want to hold spawns on this side of the map most, if not all, of the map.
1. Town Center
2. Cave East
3. Soccer Field
4. Cave West
5. Cliff Path
Gun Runner (Preferred Start Team: Coalition) If you start on bad side you want to fight your way through hill 4 and wrap behind hill 2 to gain spawns you want. If your team doesn't win the gun fights needed to do so you can flank through the opposite side of map for control (not preferred). For hills 3, 4, 5 you want spawns by hill 5.
1. Center Platform
2. Munition Depot
3. Mine Entrance
4. Cargo Containers
5. Shipping Warehouse
Hackney Yard (Preferred Start Team: Coalition) If you start bad side your first goal is to push left side of map past hill 4 and into the back area of hill 2. Building control that hill 4 is in (green building) and top L control are crucial throughout the entire map!
2. Tire Shop (Upstairs)
3. Smokestack (Square area ground level)
4. Office (Bottom level by stairs)
5. Dock Building (Bottom level)
Rammaza (Preferred Start Team: Allegiance) If you start on bad side you want to push through hill 5--->hill 2 and to where the player arrow is to flip spawns. You can this spawn side all game if your team is slaying out the opposition as you can spawn trap them for hills 3 & 5 easily. If not you can hold spawns behind 3 & 5 for those hills but risk getting trapped yourself.
2. Electronic Shop
3. Barber Shop
4. Construction (Bottom level)
St. Petrograd (Preferred Start Team: Coalition) If starting bad side you want to push up the left side of map (water side) and get behind hill 4 to control spawns. You will want to keep control of these spawns most of the map.
1. Shipping Area
3. Hazmat Building (Bottom level)
4. Pool Hall/Bar

vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv RobZ in What are you trying to improve on as a CoD player?
vVv has always been a place where the community can improve at the games they're playing with like minded members and gamers. Back in the Gears of War days, we used to have threads sharing feedback with each other on where we could improve and also share what we're trying to work on so that others could help support us.
I'll kick this off!
What I'm trying to improve during April on CoD:
learn call-outs on competitive maps learn map choke-points, spawn points, and rotations for respawn game modes SnD setups learn more about class-setup options and create my own custom class setups based on my play-style
I'm not a competitive player, but when I play, I prefer to win and I believe the above will help make me a better player.
If anyone has resources or ideas for how I can improve on the above, I welcome them!
I also welcome everyone to post the areas that they are trying to improve on. It could be with a specific weapon (SMG/AR), game mode (SnD, HP, Dom), flaw in your play-style (being too aggressive/patient), improving communication, etc.
vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv Hoagie in What are you trying to improve on as a CoD player?
Call outs can be tricky as some spots have multiple names and which one is used depends on who you are playing with. Luckily for most of the areas the name for them is displayed underneath the compass at the top of the screen.
Spawn points are VERY weird in this game. Even with the perfect setup the enemy team can still spawn with you and your team.
I just made a big post with each map overview with each point marked and the names listed below the image for all CDL Hardpoint maps.
SnD setups come with playing and reviewing footage from top AM teams and Pros. I'm more than willing to go over SnD setups.
As for class setup it depends on what you prefer (AR/SMG) and your play style. I'm going to make a post with the most basic class setups used in comp.

vVv B1zkit reacted to BlacK StaRR (ex-vVv) in Former vVv Members and where they are now....
Where am I today?: I'm 25, 26 in March. Happily engaged to my girlfriend of almost 3 years. Saving up to hopefully buy our first house by the end of the year.
Do I still game?: not nearly as much as I'd like to, I get a few hours in every few days but with work and being an actual adult now I cant sink in the hours I used to
What platform do I mainly play on now?: ps4 or PC mainly. My xbox collects dust.
What do I do for work?: I'm a fraud analyst for a large UK bank.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? absolutely. I had many roles in the 2 stints I had in vVv, I was the assistant EU manager on my first stay where I learnt a lot of skills when it comes to dealing with people and leadership. When I came back to vVv a few years later I quickly became the assistant and then the CoD division manager. I took over with the division in a pretty poor state and I'd like to think i turned it i to the most successful period the division had. The skills i learnt then by working with the division and Jerry have been applied in my professional life and got me into the position I'm in now which I'm extremely grateful for.

Where am I at today?
Many of you here that have posted probably do not know me as I came after your time here, however, I am Bagzli and I did a number of things at vVv Gaming. I've started out as an admin in our Guild Wars 2 Guild and moved onto running the said Guild, followed by running all the MMO guilds we had and then even became the President of vVv Gaming. I've also built the current website that we have now. I have been eSports focused with my time here, but I focused on creating content instead of participating in it. For example, I would create Tournaments for players to participate. I did this in Guild Wars 2 (Kings of The Mists), Rocket League (Supersonic Series), and PUBG (The Armaggedon Series). Currently, I still lurk the forums from time to time and drop in to say hi on Discord. I would say today I'm in a great place. I've recently bought a house and am counting days until I can move in. For me, this was a huge milestone to cross and I'm very happy I've finally accomplished that goal.
Do I still Game?
I still game, however, due to my efforts mostly being focused on a personal project, I've driven down to currently playing a game that lets me be very casual... Runescape... I've always loved MMO's, That is actually how I found vVv Gaming, through Guild Wars 2 Guild. I also play from time to time: Rocket League, Dead By Daylight, Dota 2, PUBG, and Overwatch.
What platform do I mainly play on now? I've always been a PC Player, although I did buy a switch and been loving Legend of Zelda. I do also own XBOX One, just its been collecting dust lately...
What do I do for work? I'm a software engineer. I create websites. I've worked on Payment Processing websites in the past and now I work for a startup company which is a different type of adventure for me than what my previous work was.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today?
Yes, time spent here I will never regret as it has given me opportunities to grow in various areas. I'd like to believe I have grown as a person from my interactions with various people I have met due to the work I did here and as well as professionally. vVv Gaming website has been the first website I ever made on my own and it has given me the confidence to create more websites and seek better opportunities due to that experience.
vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv Pherzghul in Former vVv Members and where they are now....
Oh man. I haven't been around much, but I do still play games here and there. It's awesome to see vVv coming back around.
Where am I at today? I am a graphic designer for a high tech direct marketing service. It's an awesome job with a great team that reminds me much of when I was a staff member here in vVv. I've won an ADDY award for a custom design piece I created for one of our clients. I still find it weird when I get introduced to visitors as an award winning designer at work. #humblebrag
Do I still Game? Definitely. I just picked up APEX and been doing some Dota AutoChess on the side. I'm patiently waiting on Star Citizen...and on The Division 2 to be released.
What platform do I mainly play on now? PC and Switch.
What do I do for work? I create seasonal postcard content, marketing design, Premedia and online template automation.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? Probably? I never asked my boss if it did affect his decision or not.
Let me know if anyone wants to play APEX on PC. My tag is Pherzhgul on Origin.
vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv NerdPrblms in Former vVv Members and where they are now....
Love this @Shadow (ex-vVv)!
Where am I at today? Its been a long 10 years, and even more growing up in that time frame. I now have 2 kids and I moved to NC. I work with a company who is the orignal creator of geophysical mesauring equipment using nuclear radioactive sources. I am the sole International Sales Advocate.
Do I still Game? Absolutely, I cannot imagine a world where I would not continue to do what I love.
What platform do I mainly play on now? Mainly, as it as always been, on Xbox. But I do dabble on PC as my secondary. I will soon be getting a Switch so you can find me there co-oping with @vVv Skeensyy
What do I do for work? I work with a company who is the orignal creator of geophysical mesauring equipment using nuclear radioactive sources. I am the sole International Sales Advocate.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? With out a doubt. If it wasn't for vVv I would not have made the friends and connections I did and still have to this day. Main shoutouts are to @vVv Skeensyy and @vVv Exodus whom are a HUGE reason I am here today. On the personal side, @vVv Skeensyyis my best friend and without vVv, I would have never met such an awesome friend who has stuck by my side for the last 10 years.
vVv B1zkit reacted to Mr Jones in Former vVv Members and where they are now....
I chose a good day to check out the forums again, lol. Many on here won't recognize me or my name, at least I don't think so. I was a vVv Member for just over 2 years, from 2008 to 2010. I was the Community Manager about 6 months, but mostly I was on a few of the amatuer Gears of War teams.
Where am I today? I'm 28, in college on the G.I. Bill and will become a cop fairly soon.
Do I still game? Regularly, yes. I'm not as competitive as I was before. I mostly use gaming as a way to relax now.
What platform do I mainly play on now? PS4. I'd like to get into PC Gaming, but I just never seem to have the money to put together a rig that would make it worth it.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? No, not really. Jerry did put me in my first management position, though, and I learned a lot while I was Community Manager. Out of my time in vVv, I'm most thankful for that. Getting to meet a lot of the vVv Community at MLG Orlando 2009 was great and a memory I'll cherish.
vVv B1zkit reacted to vVv Hoagie in Former vVv Members and where they are now....
Where am I today?: I'm now 25 and still living in Chesapeake, VA. When I was originally in vVv, back in 2010-2014, I was in high school and college and I now work at Newport News Shipyard.
Do I still game?: If I'm not at work, sleeping, or have something important to do I'm playing.
What platform do I mainly play on now?: PS4 is my main system as I'm on a team going to compete at CWL Fort Worth. I still play on X1 and PC from time to time when I fell like switching things up.
What do I do for work?: I'm a ship-fitter at Newport New Shipyard. I build all the structural components for submarines for the Navy.
Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? Yes it did. Made quite a few friends through vVv that I still keep in contact with and a few I still game with from time to time. I still have a drive to compete at the highest level I can, as well as step back and enjoy just little things a game can offer. I try to take the various lessons I learned from Jerry, Doom, and many others during my time here and apply them to my life daily.
