    vVv Pherzghul got a reaction from vVv Milkyy in CHOP LIST APRIL '20   
    The way that I see Honorary Members, they are individuals that have positively influenced vVv and left their marks in history. While not exactly 1=1 equivalent, it would be similar to "chopping" past tournament achievements just because players are no longer active in vVv. So while the intent is in the right direction, it is the wrong approach to go about it.
    Now, if y'all want to turn Honorary Members into Historic Members (exemplary members of the past), and create a new tier of membership where members are exemplary and are required to remain active, then yea that would be something that would work. So basically splitting Honorary into Historic Member (or any similar name) and then Exemplary Member (or similar name) for active ones. This keeps our history untouched and elevates current exemplary members where they should be. Eventually Exemplary Members will get archived into Historic Members as they retire.
    As for my activity, I only have a Switch for console, I currently playing WoW classic. I recently started to play Valorant and have picked up some games with Amped and Stitches. I'm only active around here when my presence or help is needed. Also if anyone wants to play Valorant, hit me up.

    Hey All,
    I talked it over with Jerry and Exodus, and based on your feedback we came up with a proposal. This idea is based on five pillars of activity where vVv will focus. The pillars include:
    Social Events
    One of the underlying messages I keep hearing is that people want to play together. We are here because we're gamers, and playing games together is one of the core elements of vVv. Activities this should include are community game nights in specific titles, streamer viewing parties, and tournament viewing events.
    Professional Networking and Support
    Once upon a time vVv got people jobs in the games industry. Well that time is still now, but we can expand the opportunities beyond the games industry. We can support the people who want to hone games industry skills (community management, event coordination, etc.) and also support members who want to become streamers, influencers, and content creators. Specifically for Streamers, this is a symbiotic relationship. Streamers represent vVv, vVv supports streamers (viewers, retweets, etc), and that system could build some real steam once it gets momentum.
    Central business activity
    Several people mentioned bringing back tournaments and vVv-supported competition. These can become the nexus around with the organization rotates, giving our competitive members a chance to compete, our staff something to build, our community something to cheer for, and our streamers something to build on. "But what game should we compete in?" I hear you ask. All of them! No one just plays one game anymore, we rotate through them as they get stale. vVv's tournament should be more like the PAX Omegathon, where your final result is dependent on your performance in several different games (just an idea, is this too crazy?).
    Making new Friends
    This is another big part of why we're here. We want to be a part of a community of friends and fellow gamers. That should infuse everything we do, and all of our activities should be built to support it.
    Classy Environment
    One of the earliest things I heard about vVv Gaming was that it should be a place where any member is someone I'd want to play games with. We've always kept out, or removed, people who didn't fit the culture, and we should continue to do the same now. Part of this is holding each other accountable, and part of it is moderation, but we should maintain that culture of "I could play games with everyone here."
     

    To start, we don't need game divisions to do this. There aren't enough people or big enough titles. Instead this focuses on the core experience of building a community of great people, which can be further refined as it starts to grow again.
    So that's our proposal for how to build on the new direction of vVv. Thoughts? What is it missing?
     
    Who wants to volunteer to be responsible for each pillar?

    I just wanted to say thank you, vVv Gaming wouldn't be what it is or where it is if it wasn't for all of you.  I may run vVv Gaming but all of you make it what it is, I am grateful for all of you,  I want you all to know that. I want to thank vVv LordJerith for making me President of vVv Gaming, for being a close friend and always believing in me. I want to thank vVv DoomHammer for all he has done, working tirelessly on the new site, making sure it flows smoothly as well as the new logo getting finalized. Thank you Jerry and Jordan for the new website, it looks amazing and we all appreciate it. Thank you vVv Buzz  and vVv Pherzghul for the tireless work you both did on the new logo, thank you vVv Buzz for all the GFX work you're doing now, updating the homepage with the new logo in certain areas as well as the icons for specific groups on the site.  I'd like to thank all of my staff for everything they do, they're a great group of people that will do anything for vVv Gaming and it doesn't go unnoticed. I look forward to the future, the progress we have made since I took the helm is crazy to me, we're only going to move up!

    You can use the wallpaper for personal use, I would assume that using vVv logos/banners on any social media or streaming platform would require you to be a vVv member first.

    Indeed it is! Taking the fantastic work from Buzz and Pherzghul and revising it with your feedback we now have a new official vVv Logo.

     
    The next step is to add the logo type (the "vVv Gaming" text) and update our style guide, and once that's finished you can expect to see the new logo rolling out officially as we get the website updated.
     

    The alternative solid color version will be used on mediums or locations where a gradient is impractical or impossible.
     
    Thank you to everyone for your input and feedback during this process of change. It's sometimes difficult, but we have ended with an awesome result because of it.

    I made a few design concepts. They are not finished, they need work. I just wanted to put together some ideas to see if there is any momentum to change the shield design on to something else. The left side is the logotype and the right side just the logo. For example, the logotype is what would go on the forums and other places where the whole name of vVv Gaming needs to be shown. The logo is the symbol that represents us and is usually used on apparel and other areas where the logotype is not the best to use. Again, these are not finished, just concepts that we can use develop ideas.

    Had some free time and put this together real quick using the same shield design and slight variant design of the "vVv Bird."  It's a mix between the round old logo and shield concept. The design has a heavy tactical emblem feel, while keeping the shield as it's main point of focus. It uses the same typeface so the logo is a lot more familiar, just like an old friend you haven't seen in a while that you still recognize :] I'm ok to hand over the illustrator file if you guys want to grab anything from this.

    If you want to go with this design then the typeface needs to improve. It has no hierarchy or visual appeal. Play with font weights and make specific text stand out.
    I like the "vVv bird" concept, but it needs a lot of work to make it the point of focus on the design since it's right in the middle of everything. Play with the distance between bars, bar thickness and the shape of how the bars end.

    I like the use of shadows to show depth on the bottom banner, but it doesn't work well on the right side of the shield. It looks likes an afterthought of attempting to make the shield have some form of generic depth without adding any other visual value to the design.
    Overall this design is the start of something that needs a lot more work on the layout, visual elements and polish. It is not entirely finished as is.
    What do you want the new logo to achieve?

    I hope you find this constructive, let me know if you need help.

    Oh man. I haven't been around much, but I do still play games here and there. It's awesome to see vVv coming back around.
    Where am I at today? I am a graphic designer for a high tech direct marketing service. It's an awesome job with a great team that reminds me much of when I was a staff member here in vVv. I've won an ADDY award for a custom design piece I created for one of our clients. I still find it weird when I get introduced to visitors as an award winning designer at work. #humblebrag

    Do I still Game? Definitely. I just picked up APEX and been doing some Dota AutoChess on the side. I'm patiently waiting on Star Citizen...and on The Division 2 to be released.

    What platform do I mainly play on now? PC and Switch.

    What do I do for work? I create seasonal postcard content, marketing design, Premedia and online template automation.

    Did your time in vVv affect where you are at today? If so, then how? Probably? I never asked my boss if it did affect his decision or not.
    Let me know if anyone wants to play APEX on PC. My tag is Pherzhgul on Origin.

    vVv Pherzghul reacted to vVv Shadow 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...
