How long has this roster been playing together? Our team has been together for almost 4 months now. We planned on teaming for reach before it even came out so we just gamed H3 hard on gamebattles to tune our chemistry and then when reach came out we have been gaming hard as a team ever since.
Where do the players live in relation to one another? Scarred and I live 5 minutes away from each other in Debary FL. Nester and Meltdown live 5 minutes from each other as well in Port St. Lucie FL. Overall we live about 2 hours away from the other 2 and we attend every local LAN tourney we can afford to.
What are your team’s accomplishments? With this exact roster? Links? If this exact roster has not accomplished anything, please list each player's accomplishments with supporting links. Our current team has won 2-3 local LAN tourneys at Fusion gaming and other smaller local tourneys that didn't have to much of a payout. We attended the first DC Reach Combine in washington this past weekend and placed 13th out of the 230+ teams that showed. Scarred also placed 23rd in the FFA. As far as past placings my other 3 teammates haven't attended many events but I got them gaming hard and we are planning on attending every reach event in 2011.
What are your team's latest tournament results? Please provide support links and any links to supporting pictures. http://www.mlgpro.com/content/news/317057/MLG-D-C-Halo-Reach-4v4-Full-Results We placed 13th overall losing to Livin the dream and Line of Sight.
What is the team's next event online? LAN? The 10,000$ Dr Pepper ladder is our next online tourney. Right now we are ranked 16th because meltdowns grandmother just recently passed and we just took a short break for him after DC. http://gamebattles.com/xbox360/halo-reach/team/southern-comfort . Then our next LAN tourney will be wherever they decide to hold the 2011 Reach Opener.
If you've been sponsored before, who was your best sponsor? Why? I've been sponsored before by Paragon gaming nation and it wasn't the best experience mainly because we were promised quite a bit of financial help and nothing actually panned out.
Why are you no longer with them? He quit sponsoring teams in order to open a LAN center locally.
What was your worst sponsor? Why? Paragon, and above reasons.
What do you hope to achieve with your team? We hope to hold a pro seed all throughout 2011 and come out on top at as many events as possible. It's a new game and in my opinion new talent will be at the top. Having 4 months of chemistry on top of that makes our odds pretty solid as well.
Who do you see as your toughest competition? Some of the tougher teams are currently still playing halo 3 untill after dallas. Teams like FB, tD, and Dynasty will be some of the harder competition in my eyes.
What is your expected finish at your next event? Anywhere within the top 8. Top 16 gets a stipend of 400$ from MLG so that helps a ton. But in the grand scheme of things we would like to win as many events as possible.
What do you hope to get out of vVv Gaming? We want to represent your name among the greatest teams in reach. Similar to how UoR has a lot of really good teams in their core. I feel like we are a perfect fit just due to our chemistry as a team and the fact that our team will make vVv look good at tourneys and away from them as well.
Individually, all team members (Including the captain) must answer the following:
How long have you been playing competitively? I have been playing competitively since Orlando 2007 where my team placed 27th overall in pro bracket.
If you are attending a LAN event, please detail your travel plans here (flight info, car info, train info, bus info, etc). Depending on where the opener is we might be driving. We like to drive usually because we all live so close and it's a great team bonding experience.
How many hours during the week do you devote to gaming? How many of those hours are for the game for which you are applying? We play anywhere from 40-50 hours a week and then an additional 8-10 hours a week on LAN with our full team. 100% of the time we are gaming halo reach.
Have you attended any national events? (MLG, CPL, WCG) MLG and PGL
Are you shy around people you don't know? Not one bit. I'm 23 years old so i have that outgoing leadership experience that helps our team out a lot. I have also talked to some vVv kids at nashville last time I was attempting to get a sponsor through you guys and they were pretty cool kids.
Link us to some of your best personal achievements. I finished 27th overall at MLG Orlando 07. Won the first Halo 3 Film Festival on MLGPRO.com collecting 500$. Got 2nd at PGL 07 in orlando winning another 300$. I've only made top 48 like 3-4 times in H3 because i had to go with a sponsor kid for most of my events because i couldn't afford to go. I've won close to 10 locals in FL for H2-H3 and just recently won my first for Halo reach.
What was your biggest loss or disappointment in gaming? Why did you lose that match? My biggest let down would probably be at this last reach tourney at the DC Combine. We were predicted to be one of the top teams and 13th to me is a let down. We had some things that happened out of our control though that contributed to that but we know the problems we made and we will be on top of correcting those and improving at every tourney we attend.
How can you PERSONALLY benefit vVv Gaming? I personally can benefit you guys by having your vVv name associated with a very respected player(myself) and team. There are way to many arrogant and cocky Halo kids and I think our team is one of the nicest most respected teams gaming so far. And that in my opinion will make your guys image look even better. That and I personally gurantee my placings in reach make vVv look even better.
If your team has a coach, please have him answer the following: We are currently looking for a full time coach and with a sponsor I think it would make our search that much easier. It isn't hard to get a coach a month before the event but we are looking for a full time coach/manager type person.
Placings and Accomplishments: 27th Pro MLG Orlando 07, 2nd PGL Orlando FFA, Top 32 AM MLG Orlando 2008, Top 16 AM MLG Anaheim 09, 1st Place H3 Film Festival, 8-10 Local tourney wins at Gameknights, Fusion Gaming, and Action Play in Florida.Top 32 AM MLG Orlando 2010. We got 7th on the last H3 ladder but didn't play in the playoffs because we were focused on Halo:Reach.
Hey just to let you and all the others know. If you don't have time to add value to vVv-Gaming as an applicant please read this and decide if you would like to add value this way or another! Much Appreciated
