      What is the game you are currently most active in and why?

    I'm currently most active in Escape From Tarkov. I enjoy the realism the game provides and find myself performing well in first person shooters.
      What are some other games that you currently play?

    CSGO, Destiny 2, Resident Evil 2, Apex Legends, and the occasional Elder Scrolls V.
      How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom?

    I heard about vVv Gaming through word of mouth in Gears of War and was vVv Gaming's Gears of War Division Manager until the division was dropped.
      Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How did you get to know them?

    There are a lot of new faces that I can't wait to meet. So far, I've seen Th0r and Exodus and I hope to see many more familiar faces in the upcoming weeks.
      Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming?

    I'm interested in joining vVv Gaming because I want a community that I feel like I belong in and always have people that I can talk to.
      What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming?

    I love playing and listening to music. My other interest is in Martial Arts.
      How do you plan to add value to vVv Gaming?

    I plan to add value to vVv Gaming by spreading the word that the amazing community that I know and love is coming back via Twitch & other social media platforms.
      Do you attend LAN Events?

    Yes. It's been quite some time but I would love to continue to do what I did in the previous years.


    Thank you for reading my application. I hope to meet all of you very soon.

    A good series to watch is D.C Titans. I’m not a huge fan of how D.C make their shows, but this one is really well done. 
     
    Film-wise, you should watch Hurricane.

    Last year in December I registered to become a stem cell donor. After a week I registered, I got matched with someone. From then on, I was giving someone hope to a new life. 
     
    It was only last week (21st of January) that I successfully donated my stem cells. A few days after I managed to find out some minor info about the patient. I learnt that my stem cells were going to a male in his 60s, and is from the U.S.
     
    This happend to be one of the proudest moments of my life, and I’d happily donate again!

    Minotaur reacted to vVv LordJerith in Being Good Internet citizens and An Overdue Apology   
    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to update you on something we have discovered that has effected everyone's ADL experience: our site-wide ban on Reddit.
     

    So, why was vVv Gaming.com banned?
    We have been banned for several reasons. I want you to understand why, so that we all become better citizens of the internet. Reasons:
    members/staff actively engaged in vote brigading. It's when a group of people get together to up vote the same thing, be it a single person, or a group of people representing something.  It's just not fair, and hurts what Reddit is all about at it's core. If our events are good or appealing, people will organically upvote the events. Period. Former member, Sundown, who is now IP banned from our site, did two unforgivable things: He basically crossed too many lines in his rage against certain Reddit moderators He used my position at Riot Games to gain clout and attempt to bully Reddit moderators. This was personal. No one should ever do anything like this, ever. Period.  
    What are we going to do about it?
    We are not going to post Reddit links in the Shoutbox or forums to upvote. Go to Reddit and find the links as anyone would, by your normal Reddit use. We have removed Cam from vVv, and made sure all staff are trained on this C Wide has been working to rebuild our relationship with the moderators. As you already know, if you get caught doing this, expect to be banned use /r/summonerschool and /r/leagueofleglends normally, get involved and be a good Reddit member  
    Finally, our apology to Reddit:




     
    I want to apologize to the Reddit moderators and the community for this behavior. It's clear in my absence that a lot of things were not going well, but this topped the cake. Regardless, I'm the owner, and I take full responsibility for this.  vVv Gaming is committed to be good citizens of the internet, particularly Reddit. You have my sincere apology and a sincere pledge to make things right.

    This game is absolutely amazing. Played with Pherz, Natural, and Trance tonight and we had a blast.
     
    With the addition of spectator mode in the next patch, this game COULD be destined for an eSports future. I'd love to see vVv support it.

    I've heard so many things about this game as of late. So I decided to give it a try for myself, and I must say, it's really fun, but competitive at the same time. This game is available on PC and PS4, but if you're gonna play on PC, it's highly recommended to play with a controller.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my first official update since I've come back. After a lot of conversations with staff, community, sponsors, applicants and alumni, it was time to set a direction for vVv for the next 12 months.  We want to be transparent with everyone, so you can hold me accountable for working toward these goals. This reflects our commitment to help YOU create awesome community experiences.
     
    When I give interviews, I make sure every member knows: "Ask not what vVv can do for you, but what you can do for vVv."  As I stated above, vVv Gaming is YOUR community. Staff is here to help YOU make it awesome.   Once again, this is YOUR community. We're here to help YOU shape, develop and grow vVv.


    We've made numerous changes to staff. Here is where we ended up: Application Experience Manager and Forum Admin: vVv SugarBear (Facebook) (Twitter) Business Development Director and Co-Owner:  vVv RobZ  (Facebook) (Twitter) CoD Community Manager:  vVv B Easy (Facebook) (Twitter) LoL Community Manager: vVv C Wide (Facebook) (Twitter) Lead Designer: vVv Pherzghul (Facebook) (Twitter)  Lead Web Developer: vVv Bagzli (Twitter) Organized Play Product Manager: vVv NaturaL (Twitter) HotS Organized Play Associate: vVv Saturn (Facebook) (Twitter) LoL Event Manager and Forum Admin:  vVv Medusa (Facebook) ( Twitter) LoL Organized Play Associate: vVv Unverclopt (Facebook) (Twitter) (LoLKing) Team Experience Manager: vVv Bardo (Facebook) (Twitter) Coach, mentor, helper and he who shits upon bad kids: vVv LordJerith (Facebook) (Twitter)


     
    MISSION (for 2015-2016)
     
    "CREATE AWESOME EXPERIENCES FOR COMPETITIVE GAMERS" (for 2015-2016)

    GOALS have the highest rated organized play events as rated by competitive gamers have the most attended organized play events highest rated is more important than most attended be recognized as one of the best competitive gaming organizations in the world as rated by competitive gamers and our members be known as a talent factory by competitive gamers and sponsors

    STRATEGY create and run organized play events for competitive gamers sponsor and develop amateur teams to participate in and promote organized play events partner and deliver value to sponsors that create products and services for competitive gamers create and evolve an identity that competitive gamers want create and manage a clear path for competitive gamers who want our identity create and manage an ecosystem that develops competitive gamers and future gaming professionals

    EXECUTION AND TACTICS
    We now know where this big vVv Gaming ship is headed. We all know the mission. We know the objectives and goals we want to achieve, and we have strategies that tell us how to achieve these goals. This is actually the easy part. Now comes the hard part.  
    Each of the strategic items above will need executions and tactics. EXECUTIONS are what is done to deliver on or to coordinate a strategy. EXECUTIONS are products and services and experiences we deliver to help us execute our strategy that will help us achieve our goals to accomplish our mission. TACTICS are actions taken to achieve our strategy.
    For example, the League of Legends Amateur Draft League (LoL ADL) is an EXECUTION (Product/Service) that helps us achieve our strategic objective of “create and run organized play events for competitive gamers.” How we set up the Mumble channels and how we name them are TACTICS.

    As a vVv community member or applicant your EXECUTIONS should include: Recruiting good community members Engaging with applicants Supporting vVv on social media (Facebook) (Twitter) Being active in our forums, shoutbox & Mumble/XBL/ PS4  I hope this post helps everyone know who is accountable for what, and what we are focused on. I would love and appreciate any feedback, thoughts and/or suggestions. It's YOUR community, we're here to help YOU make it awesome.
