    Hey all,
    I am going to be creating a new youtube series for Overwatch called the Overwatch Comp Shop, where I discuss various different hero compositions centered around a single hero.
     

     
    Here is the video detailing everything else.  Thanks for watching!

    Hey Bardo I have some suggestions:
    1) For a scoring system, I think it should be win/loss base with an MVP chosen by the team members of both winning and losing side.
    2)  Drafting process should use the highest ranking team members as captains choosing others.  Players should put their 3 best roles in comments (i.e. Ranged Assassin, Tank, Healer/support), to help balance out teams.  Hots is a little trickier because there isn't a standard Top, Mid, Bot/support, Jungler.  There are no real set lanes based off that.  The meta I see now is more along the lines of 2 Assassins (either 2 ranged, or 1 ranged 1 melee) Tank, Support (either ranged or melee) and Specialist (usually ranged).
    3)  Ranking people can be done 1 of 2 ways.  
             a) We can take people's hero league number (lower the better) and situate people that way, with leaving non-ranked players in a separate pool.
             b ) We can use http:/www.hotslogs.com to get everyone's MMR for HL and Quick Match.  Hots Logs appears to be the standard of ranking for                          figuring out MMR.  You simply download the Hots Logs program, install and run it.  It will upload every gameplay demo that you have recorded                    (its on by default).  Hotslogs then runs an algorithm to compare and contrast based off of W/L Ratios to give a player an MMR.  Here is an                          example of my HotsLogs info page                              
                  https://www.hotslogs.com/Player/Profile?PlayerID=1613451 
                  It gives pretty comprehensive information but most importantly an MMR rating as well as a Tier (i.e. Silver/Platinum).  
                  I think that we should use QM MMR as a baseline until we get more people in for ranked.
    4) ADL times should be during my Wednesday Night Weekly Stream 10pm to 1am =D
     
    Any ways those are some preliminary thoughts, what do you all think?

    Sorry to hear about you leaving.  To a degree I see where you are coming from with "non-competitive competitive" community point.  vVv has a strong history of winning several tournaments in several different continents.
    Than that died off.  Now vision's evolve over time, however one could argue that vVv was not willing to make the necessary adaptations to stay competitively viable.  I always thought the vVv community was at its best when it did have "pro" teams.  It gave us something to cheer and root for.  It gave us role models to look up to and bragging rights when we win.
    There are also some other things that I see that are problematic with the community but this is not the venue for that discussion.
     
    Best of luck Bullet, I'm sure you'll do well wherever you go.

    It looks like your scores are really solid but unfortunately this isn't season 2 and adc's dont have the kind of impact in the game they used to. They are more balanced out now. But what I can say is that if you are playing bot lane and crushing, make it your goal to take the tower as quickly as possible and rotate to other lanes to push towers. That is the best way you can apply pressure as an adc/support. Especially a champion like Jinx (who it seems like you prefer) she can shred through towers so if you are winning lane, rotate mid ASAP after your own tower goes down. Take towers and then maybe call for a dragon etc. Dont just continue crushing your lane once they are already down, you gotta spread the wealth XD

    What is your current division in Ranked? Silver5, might drop to Bronze 1
    What rank were you at the start of last season? Bronze 3, didn't even do placements went 1-1 before the new rank system and put me in bronze 3.
    What rank were you at the end of last season? Silver 4
    Have you ever been banned in-game? No
    What is your favorite champion and role? Why? I have too many favorite champions. Marksman(ADC) because there are a lot of people who can't ADC and it forced me to go from the support to ADC so bot lane is something I excel at. I will support but I am very picky to who is my ADC, had a guy who was in perfect sync with me but he stopped playing shortly after we met.
    How did you hear about vVv gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? League of Legends clan and team recruitment forum
    Who do you currently know in vVv gaming? How do you know them? N/A
    Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? Sucks playing league by myself (except in rank because I play seriously). I've know a lot of people who come and go in League so I thought joining a gaming clan would be better towards finding long term league of legends friends
    What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Partying and hanging out with friends (which sadly I do none of)
    Do you have competitive tournament experience? No but would like to
    Have you attended any national events? No but would like to
    What do you hope to achieve competitively this season? Diamond and pro sub
    Are you interested in finding a ranked 5s team to play on? Yes
    What Level of seriousness are you looking for (semi-serious, serious, or professional aspirations)? Professional aspirations
    What are your goals for playing on a ranked team? Diamond first season, LCS second
    When are you generally available to practice and how many nights per week are you looking to practice with a team? Every night unless I have plans
    Do you have any interest in shot calling, analysis, or being a team captain? Analysis

    Hey all,
    After my PAX weekend a took a little break from LoL ranked now it seems I am on an upswing.
     
    http://www.lolking.net/summoner/na/440740#matches
     
    Overall I feel more confident with Jinx and Lucian as well with AD carry.  For me its a really fun position and my mechanics have improved significantly.  I wonder if there are other AD carries I should try out as well, just to have a little variety.
     
    I credit my ability to play to vVv for helping me grow and learn.
