  2. Hello everyone, For those of you who do not know me. I was a vVv member from 2012 to 2015, I was a member of the Call of Duty Division, was the Call of Duty Assistant Manager for a point in time, and then left vVv Gaming when the esports efforts were not pushed as much as I would have liked; then I became the Esports Manager for Clan Lucky Strike before it was sold to Operation Supply Drop. After the sell to OSD, I had left CLS to return back to vVv Gaming to become the Business Development Coordinator, before effectively leaving vVv Gaming. I just recently came back to the vVv Forums after seeing a post about vVv looking to make a return in the esports community. After seeing so many familiar faces in the shoutbox and some of them repping the V's once more, I wanted to make a post to see where all the former vVv Members are at today. So with that being said..... Former vVv Members, even the ones who just recently got their V's back.... Where are you at today? Do you still game? What do you do for work? What platform do you mainly play on now? Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? I will start.... Where am I at today? Well I am 24 about to turn 25 in March. Since my time in vVv, I have moved out of my parents house and into an apartment with my SO and 2 of our friends, where I have lived for the past 2 years. I have grown a lot since my time in vVv, and hopefully after talking with some old faces, that they can agree to that. I honestly am unsure what else to put here so this will be the last sentence haha. Do I still Game? Is the sky still blue? If you look at the sun will it make you blind? What type of question is this? Of course I still game. I game as much as I can nowadays which is not as much as I would like to, but that is what having a job and a life gets you. What platform do I mainly play on now? I mainly play on the PS4, but I do have a perfectly capable gaming PC to play on, but I do not have many people to game with on PC that much. Also I am in the market to buy a NZXT build PC but am currently debating on rather I want to drop 2K now... I also have a Switch to play Smash Brothers on.... Fight me. What do I do for work? After many years, I was able to turn my passion of gaming and esports into a career, and I am proud to say that I am the Operations Manager for OpTic Gaming now. Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? Yes and 1000x again YES!! vVv was my starting point in esports. vVv gave me a platform to learn more about the esports industry, and with the help of Jerry, Doom, and Rob, I was able to take what I learned from vVv to propel me forward into other organizations which inevitably helped me land where I am at today, and honestly if it was not for vVv Gaming, I would not be where I am at today and for that I am forever thankful. So thats me!! So who will be next to go? I still #BelievVve there are many old faces lurking the forums...
  3. Love the new Mission and direction vVv is headed. Also Jerry's line is t1
  4. Great guy to be around. Great commentator as well and good friend. Super passionate about vVv as well. This guy I believe deserves a interview
  5. I will be there If anyone needs rides, let me know. I can see what I can do.
  6. This guy is by far one of the greatest guys I met while I was in Clan Lucky Strike. He was eager to get things done, and got them done on time and quality work as well. I believe Eric will be a great fit for vVv
  7. Makes me sad but every word he said is true.
  8. CoD Championships did that this year for 8 places. 8 teams qualified through League Play, Some were really good teams, but most were teams that just played 24/7 for the past 3 weeks. Which most pros took off work to do. All teams that werent pros got first rounded though.
  9. Congratulatiosn on the new job Doomhammer. We will miss you!
  10. Dr Pepper Tuition Contest Hello everyone, I am Michael White, also known as vVv Shadow among the community. I am 19 years old, and currently going to community college to get my basics and hopefully will transfer to UTD to finish my degree unless my plans change, and I end up moving. If that did happen I would continue my education there and get a Computer Science Degree at whatever University they may have. I have been a member of vVv since February of 2012. I was here when there was 5 people in the Call of Duty Division, I was here when the CoD Division got dropped, I was here when it got reinstated. vVv is a significant part of my life. It has changed me in many ways for the better, it has made me a better person overall. It has taught me professionalism, business skills, people skills, as well as life skills. I wish to continue my education, and get a degree in Computer Science so I can help develop games. If I win this scholarship or a part of this Scholarship it would take a huge weight off my shoulders, with how I would be ending up paying for my education. All I am asking is to please help and please vote for me and show your friends this and have them vote for me. I would really appreciate it. My rolemodel in life has always been my brother, he got kicked out of high school, and joined the military and made something with his life, he always told me to not make the same mistakes he did and to go to College and get an education. I want to make him proud. As he was in the military, he was always stationed far away so the only way I could "Hang" out with him was by playing Video Games. It all started out with a MMORPG named Star Wars Galaxies, but after a few years it more transpired into the Console scene. I first heard about MLG when it appeared on ESPN, I was amazed by it, I tried to follow the scene since then, but I fell off, I picked it back up back when Black Ops 1 was on the Circuit for the first event when Leverage won MLG Dallas 2011. Right then, I knew I wanted to get into eSports, but I had no outlet to get into it with, I had no idea about Gamebattles at the time or anything else. In early January 2012, I got an email from Kontrol Freek saying that vVv Gaming was taking applications to join again starting January 19th. I was amazed, so on January 19th, I immediately applied, and there was my outlet to get into eSports. I honestly believe I would not be where I am at today in life, or in gaming, if it was not for vVv. I have met amazing people while being apart of vVv and I thank every single one of them. The smartest person I know, Jerry "LordJerith" Prochazka, is the owner of vVv. He personally has taught me a lot and has helped me a lot through life. One big thing that I love about eSports is how Dr Pepper personally supports MLG and eSports with the @DrPepperGaming Twitter, the Dr Pepper Ultimate Gaming House, the Dr Pepper Pre Game Show at MLG Events, and not to mention the Dr Pepper Booths, with free Dr Pepper at MLG Events (Personally my favorite). I really hope I get this opportunity and win the Dr Pepper Tuition Contest. I would truthfully be thankful for it. (Photo courtesy of www.teamliquid.net) Vote for me Here!

  12. My first endorsement in a few months. You should be proud MetalFoot I endorse MetalFoot How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? Ive spent about a month of game time with him and weve texted/talked every single day since then. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how? He seemed like a good guy all in all. I thought he could improve on his CoD skills though at first. It didnt really change over time. My impression of him was right. He is a really cool guy. His CoD Skills have improved though since when we first met! What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? Gosh heck Idk we have had a lot of favorite moments, but I guess the favorite moment was when he bet me I couldnt find out where he lived and I did *stalker Status* What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He like lives/eats/breathes vVv Gaming. I always see him on the forums. On Streams supporting players. On Xbox or Twitter. And it all has to generally go with vVv Gaming. He participated with the community and everything. How could they improve to be a better potential community member? I dont really think there is anything he could improve upon since he does everything exponentially in my opinion. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? he works long shifts and gets paid a lot. He doesnt put anything on the internet that can track him down! Just a chill guy all in all.
