    vVv Shadow got a reaction from Vulgar in Former vVv Members and where they are now....   
    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...

    Hey MetalFoot,   We've decided to tweak our application process so that getting five endorsements will not be the only thing we look at when we decide who gets a pre-interview. Instead, we'll be looking at a list of criteria to determine if someone is a ready to become a member of vVv Gaming. The list of criteria can be found here:   http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/topic/62080-how-do-i-get-into-vvv-gaming/   Please read through the list and let me know if you have any questions.

    vVv Shadow got a reaction from MetalFoot in MetalFoots CoD community APP.   
    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.

    vVv Shadow reacted to vVv Doomhammer in What is a vVv Gamer?   
    A large part of what has always made vVv Gaming exceptional is that we only allow the best people to be a part of the community. There is an exclusivity that comes from refusing to lower the standards of what we expect from each other, and from constantly striving to meet those standards ourselves.
     
    The endorsement application system is designed to give the power to vVv members to decide who they want to be a part of the community. This lets them directly shape the organization, but it also comes with the responsibility of consistently ensuring they are only letting in the best people.
     
    It used to be up to staff to decide if an applicant was a good fit for vVv, and they were taught what to look for through training and leadership. We wanted to help clarify what an endorsement means, because it's important that you, the community, understand the key traits that determine what a vVv Gamer is.
     
     
    A vVv Gamer is Curious: You love to learn, find new challenges and solve problems. You are eager to understand more about the bigger picture of eSports, vVv's history and culture, and you're excited to explore new titles and play with different gamers. You question all assumptions, even if it means being uncomfortable or uncertain, or not having the "right answer." ​
    A vVv Gamer is Passionate: Other people get jazzed when they are around you. You unlock the potential in others and can get other people to love what you love by making it engaging. You actively take the initiative to improve vVv because you understand that this place and this community is only as great as you make it.  
    A vVv Gamer is Collaborative: You foster creativity by sharing ideas and working with others improve both in-game and as a person. You want to answer questions, offer your knowledge, and encourage others to join you on the path of becoming better in every way possible. You look for opportunities to assist others and you have decided that it's your responsibility to take leadership and get involved with the community.  
    A vVv Gamer is Fun: You are not thin-skinned and you don't take offense to every little thing. You also are not callous or make crude, inappropriate jokes. You tailor your humor to your audience. You are classy. You don't degrade other players, you encourage and welcome them. You evangelize vVv to the world, and you actively strive to make other people have a great experience. Maybe sometimes you act a bit silly. I don't know. I'm a forum post, not a cop.  
    A vVv Gamer is Humble: You know that there's no room for ego. You recognize that your own skill is only important because of how well it allows you to help others improve. You positively represent vVv members and our culture on social media, in-game and on the website, because you understand that you are the face of vVv Gaming every time you interact with someone.  
    A vVv Gamer is Social: You relish the opportunity to meet potential applicants and hang out with old friends. Whether in the shoutbox, on social media, or in-game you always look to include new people and give them the opportunity to become a part of this amazing community that you call your own.  
     
    As a community member, when you are looking at an applicant and deciding if you want to endorse them, look at this list. Does the applicant have these traits? Does this person embody an exemplary vVv member?
     
    It can be hard to tell someone, "I won't endorse you because I don't think you're a good fit for vVv." Just remember, the applicant who gets angry or dramatic is the kind of person we don't want in vVv Gaming.
     
    The kind of gamer we want will say something like, "I'm sorry to hear that. What are some ways I could improve, or some things I could do differently." Those are the opportunities to get awesome new members that will continue to make vVv the greatest community in eSports.

According to this link that you provided in your application which are the Full DC Halo 3 Results - http://www.majorleaguegaming.com/news/mlg-d-c-full-halo-3-results-2 - It only shows 20 teams at that tournament, so I dont see how you can place 25th with only 20 teams at the Tournament.
