    Ive been thinking alot and I actually agree balancing life and two communities would be too much. I'll definitely stay active on the site but I believe my place is elsewhere. Thanks guys

    its not that i wont be able to be active on the forums, i will be very active on the site and the forums, its that when i play competitively (which is 95% of the time) it wont be with vVv players for now because i am with a team of kids from different communities.
  3. I agree. Very few other places do you see administration as dedicated as Jerry. And good stuff to all mentioned players. keep it up guys.

    thank you Matter and Medusa I appreciate all the help. and to answer your question Matter, let me start off by saying I don't think in a game like Call of Duty there ever comes a time where you have mastered it. Professionals have tons of insight, but everyone has secret little tricks that you have to learn for yourself. Therefore while Game Guru may seem like a fleeting goal, however it is a great challenge to further my abilities to the best of my extent. Some of the ways I go about gathering information on Call of Dutys: - Experimenting and trying new ideas - Using past experience from other CoDs that may or may not apply to newer versions - Watching professional streams daily - Playing with others better than myself - Reading forums (vVv, eVa) Some thought provoking threads: - Gun Tierlist (Nov 27 '12) - vVv Online Tournament? (Nov 28 '12) - K/D vs. W/L (Nov 23, '12) Post #8 - Simple Mechanics (May 9, '12) - Competitiveness, Parts I & II (which I plan to continue as I was chopped narrowly after I began these) - The Elephant in the Room (Jan 2, '12) - Thoughts on MW3 New Maps (Jan 25, '12) Posts #4,9,11,13,15,17,19,22 - BO2 Custom Classes (eVa Gaming Forum) (Nov 27, '12) Post #4 - Black Ops 2 Thoughts (eVa Gaming Forum) (Nov 29, '12) Post #12 I also just wish to voice that I am teaming with a few kids from eVa and will probably have little time to hang out with vVv members as much as I would like to. I will of course still add all the members I can and play pubs whenever I have the chance, but I just wanted everyone (who cares to know lmao) to know that is the reason behind my seemingly isolated activity. I have much to learn and a long road ahead. Have a good one, -Grimmm

    Name: Pat Brannigan Age: 17 GT's: - Xbox: vVv Grimmm, PSN: vVv_Grimmm How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom?: - I learned about vVv from watching vVv Fly Society at an MLG event in 2011. Who do you know currently in vVv Gaming? How do you know them?: - It seems as though everyone I became close with my last time around has either been chopped or moved on, but I am eager to meet the new gamers in the forums now. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming?: - After the release of the new Black Ops 2, I saw this game as having the potential to revive the competitive Call of Duty scene, and I knew just where to go to find like-minded individuals I am applying for the position of Game Guru (Call of Duty) What games coming out are you looking forward to play and why?: - I have waited a very long time for the release of BO2 because of the rumors of it being another modern warfare but I stayed hopeful it wouldnt suck too bad haha, and I am astounded by it's performance thus far. I also am enjoying Halo 4 and Assassins Creed 3. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming?: - I captain the rugby team at my high school and also play bass for a bagpipe band What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have?: - Multiple locals, 3 NJHalos Have you attended any national events (MLG, WCG, IPL)?: - No, but I hope to at some point during college. What was your best competitive moment? What was your worst?: - My best has to be on Gamebattles after facing the future semi-pro team Reality Check and having my team come together afterwards, watch film and learn from our mistakes. My worst has to be during the breakup of our team after a third straight loss and the breakdown of one of my teammates. What do you hope to achieve, competitively?: - I hope to learn all that I can about competitive Call of Duty, play competitively online or at local LANs, help organize/ ref major tournaments, and either host or appear on a casting show with my knowledge and experience.

    Again I apologize for my recent inactivity. I'm having a really rough time at home right now, plus school, plus MW3 sucks (in case anyone didn't know that). Please excuse this behavior, it is not my full potential, and come this summer I will give 100%

    Hey Spike, I'm having kind of a tough time finding places to post and things to write about. topics now are very dry and complete speculation on upcoming BO2. any pointers? lmao sorry to be a bother. I'm sure with E3 I'll have more stuff to write about but still, it will only be speculation

    I wish to apply for the position of: Game Guru (Subject Matter Expert): You know everything about a game. It’s not that you think you know everything about the game, it’s that everyone in the game respects your opinion. To prove that you are well respected, please share links to the game related forums proving your expertise. I feel that I have much insight on Black Ops and CoD4, but I truly despise MW3 and MW2 and never delved into them as much as the older titles. I'm doing much research on BO2, and following every ounce of validly-backed leaked interview, theory and information, and hope to lead the community with information in the forms of analysis, hypothesis, and debate. I feel I can draw out a good debate and get people thinking about a game, how it works and some things that if tweaked may make the game better in different ways. To sum it all up are some of my previous threads on debate, and some of my posts on threads (In chronological order as posted): http://www.vvv-gamin...early-analysis/ http://www.vvv-gamin...w3-mlg-weapons/ (16th post down) http://www.vvv-gamin...nt-in-the-room/ http://www.vvv-gamin...ld-consider-it/ http://www.vvv-gamin...oughts-on-mw3/ http://www.vvv-gamin...mple-mechanics/ I have also began writing about what games should provide in order to be a successful competitive title, and i plan on finishing this series as soon as I get more time to write about it. These are the first two: http://www.vvv-gamin...part-i-balance/ http://www.vvv-gamin...-customization/

    Can i please request to whoever the App Admin is, to not close my app but possibly postpone/suspend it? I'm swamped with school and rugby, my mics broken, (im just a mess lmaao) and I know I'm not participating 100% in the community due to these issues and I know i can do much better. In about 3-4 weeks when all my finals are finished, im going to request it to be reopened. Thank you very much for any trouble.

How do you know them?: Apple, great friend I met through vVv. TRod is a great friend i met in school. Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? I miss being in vVv for the community feeling vVv gave me. Always knowing you can go to anyone for anything and they'd always give you 100%, with ther best and honest opinion/advice. Also for great connection vVv gives to competitive gaming. If I ever need/want to know anything in the realm of gaming, someone in vVv is talking/writing/tweeting/podcasting about it. Adding value is an important aspect of being in vVv Gaming. How will you, personally, add value? I will add value by constantly repping vVv through gaming, whether online or at local events, on twitter, by writing editorials, guides, ect.

Gonna be a few very exciting releases. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Rugby, Football, bagpipes, reading, movies, writing. Where do you see yourself next year at this time? Finalizing my choice of college. What kind of competitive tournament experience do you have? I have attended local tournaments (Play N Trade, NJHalo) Have you attended any national events (MLG, WCG, CPL)? Nope How long have you been playing competitively? 2 years on and off What was your best competitive moment? What was your worst? Best: playing 4v4 Gears and pulling a few rounds at NJHalo. Worst: getting spanked in a GB match by a team now known as Reality Check. What do you hope to achieve, competitively? I hope to follow eSports as much as possible, and pursue future tournament experience while in college. What was your toughest competition? At NJHalo with vVv Apple playing Doubles. The teams were great and we got ousted in the second round of playing. How do you see vVv Gaming adding value to you? I see vVv informing, educating, guiding, and pushing me to be the best eSports activist that I can be.
