    vVv LordJerith reacted to Yui in Crazy first week of worlds!   
    Holy cow that first week of worlds was amazing!  I don't know about the rest of you all but my picks are thoroughly destroyed.  The fact that C9 is top of their group, undefeated, is crazy awesome and I did not see that one coming.  Heres my revised predictions for whos going to break after that first week of play:
    Group A: KOO and CLG
    Group B: C9 and Fnatic
    Group C: SKT and EDG
    Group D: Origen and KT
     
    But for real, if these past 4 days are any indication, anything can happen.  Can't wait for Thursday!

    Who's excited for worlds!  I can't wait to see some great action played on the international stage and if the playoffs and qualifiers from each region is any indication, we are in for an awesome month of play.  I know that some analysts and riot shoutcasters have spoken on the subject but I thought I'd put in my two cents about possible group match ups.
     
    So we know all the teams:
      Korea                           China                           North America                    Europe           LMS                             IWQ   1. SKTelecom T1         1 LGD Gaming            1 Counter Logic Gaming     1 Fnatic         1 ahq e-Sports Club    1 Bangkok Titans 2. KOO Tigers              2 Edward Gaming       2 Team SoloMid                  2 H2K            2 Flash Wolves            2 paIN Gaming 3. KT Rolster                3 Invictus Gaming       3 Cloud 9                             3 Origen   __________________________________________________________________________________________________________   We also know that the group stage is broken up into 4 groups.  2 teams from the same region cannot be placed in the same group.  All the teams are placed into 1 of 3 pools for the group draw:   Pool 1: 1st place teams from North America, Europe, China, and Korea   Pool 2: 1st place team from the LMS, 2nd place teams from North America, Europe, China, Korea, and LMS, and 3rd place teams from China and Korea   Pool 3: 3rd place teams from North America and Europe and both IWQ teams __________________________________________________________________________________________________________     Each group will consist of 1 pool 1 team, 2 pool 2 teams, and 1 pool 3 team.  So with all that out of the way some possible groups that excite me are the following!   __________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Group of Death:  SKTelecom T1, Edward Gaming, ahq e-Sports Club, Origen          This is probably the hardest group possible.  Each of the teams that are in this group have shown dominance in their region and fantastic team play.  SKT T1 was extremely dominate over the course of the 2015 LCK summer split showing a 17-1 match score and a 35-6 game score.  Playoffs were no different with a 3-0 victory over KT Rolster giving them the 1st place seed.  Edward Gaming also showed regional dominance during the summer split.  They finished as the top seed going into the playoffs with a match score of 14-6-2 (W-T-L) and a game score of 34-10.  However during the playoffs they faltered and dropped the semifinals 0-3 to LDG and the 3rd place match 1-3 to Invictus Gaming.  They did bring it back during the regional qualifier going 2-0 over snake and 3-1 over Invictus gaming giving them their 2nd place seeding.  Ahq e-Sports Club was unstoppable over the summer split for the LMS.  They only dropped 3 games over the season giving them an 11-3-0 (W-T-L) match score and a 25-3 game score.  Playoffs didn't tarnish their record either with a 3-0 performance over HKE in the finals.  Lastly Orgien was strong over the summer split in the EULCS.  They ended 2nd in the season with a 12-6 record and continued to dominate in the playoffs with a 3-1 win over H2K and gave the first losses of the summer to Fnatic, who the lost to 2-3 in the finals.  The only reason Origin was 3rd seed in their region is because they couldn't be competitive in the championship points with only one split of play.        If this group becomes a reality, I predict that SKT T1 takes 1st.  I think they will 2-0 both Origen and ahq.  EDG might be able to pull off a 1-1 against SKT T1, but it depends on what EDG team we see play.  As for 2nd place, again it depends on which EDG team shows up.  If we see the team that was present in the season then I think they will take 2nd with no problem.  But if they show up like they did in the playoffs then I think they could get run over by ahq and Origen.  Origen I think has a chance to claim the 2nd place spot if they can take games off of EDG.  2-0 against ahq is a must if Origen wants to break.   __________________________________________________________________________________________________________   TSM's Dream Group: LGD Gaming, TSM, Flash Wolves, Bangkok Titans          As a TSM fan I have to hope for a good group for them.   In this group LGD gaming was middle of the pack (5 of 12) during the summer split.  They managed to have a record of 6-12-4 (W-T-L) match score and 24-10 game score.  Where LGD came alive was the summer playoffs where they progressed through the gauntlet  3-1 over VG, 3-1 over Snake, 3-0 over EDG, and finished off 3-2 in the finals over QG.  Showing dominance in playoffs bodes well from them going into worlds as they are in an upswing in performance.  TSM had a lack luster split where they ended 5th with a record of 11-7.  Playoffs showed better results with 3-1 victories over Gravity and Liquid, however they fell short in the finals getting stomped 0-3 by CLG.  Flash Wolves were a solid 2nd place team in the LMS.  They ended the summer split in 2nd with a record of 9-3-2 (W-T-L) match score and a 21-7 game score.  Playoffs showed some weakness when they lost in the 2nd round to HKE but they brought it back in the qualifier with a 3-0 over Midnight Sun Esports and a 3-2 victory over HKE.  Lastly the Bangkok Titans barely made the the IWQ finals with a 3-3 group stage record.  They advanced on a tiebreaker of a 2-0 game score over DP who was also 3-3 in the group stage.  In the finals they showed up and managed to take out the Chiefs 3-1.   For this group, 1st place should be LGD no problem.  I think they are a higher caliber than the rest of the teams in this group and should advance with either an 6-0 or 5-1 record.  TSM would be the only team I could see possibly taking a game off of LDG, however this could be unlikely if they play like they did in the season and the playoffs.  As for 2nd, I see TSM claiming this spot.  I don't think they will have any trouble winning 2-0 over Bangkok Titans.  As for the Flash Wolves, if TSM play well and as a team they should be able to 2-0 them.   __________________________________________________________________________________________________________     Those are just a few of the possibilities, but I can't wait to see what the groups will be and for the games to start!  What do you all think?  Any possible groups or match ups have you excited?

    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.

    Overwatch Gameplay Trailer


     
    Welcome to Overwatch™   Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities.   In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world:   OVERWATCH.   It ended the crisis and helped to maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But after many years, Overwatch's influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded.   Overwatch is gone… but the world still needs heroes.
     
    Choose A Hero
      Overwatch features a wide array of unique heroes, ranging from a time-jumping adventurer, to an armored, rocket-hammer-wielding warrior, to a transcendent robot monk. Every hero plays differently, and mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. No two heroes are the same.

    Click on the heroes to see their team page.
    More heroes will be added overtime.


    Play Your Role



    Whether you're engaging in combat on the front line, providing defensive cover with your energy shield, or supporting your allies by amplifying their damage, every hero's abilities are designed to be effective as part of a team. Learning to utilize your abilities in concert with your teammates' is the key to victory.



    Team-Based Objectives

    Teams of heroes do battle across the planet. From protecting the secrets of the mysterious Temple of Anubis, to safely escorting an EMP device through King's Row, the world is your battlefield.
     
    PAYLOAD The attacking team's objective is to move the payload to a delivery point, while the defenders must halt the attackers' progress until time runs out.
    POINT CAPTURE Two teams battle over control of the map, one team on offense, the other on defense. The attackers' goal is to capture critical objectives, while the defenders must maintain control over them until time runs out.

    vVv will be having our first annual get-together at next year's GenCon. This event takes place in Indianapolis, IN on August 4th through August 7th. GenCon is a smaller (as compared to PAX or similar events), but growing convention that focuses on all areas of gaming, with large portions of table top, role playing, cosplay, and a smaller video gaming presence. The event takes place at the Indianapolis Convention Center, where there are a number of hotels nearby. The Hyatt is known to be a good location to stay, but you can check google maps for other options close by.

    The video gaming portion of GenCon is hosted by eBash. You can find more information on the event here: http://ebash.com/ebash-gencon/

    If you have any questions about the event please feel free to leave them below.

    Why GenCon?
    The location is ideal since it is centrally located in the midwest Indianapolis is a smaller, less-expensive city so those on a budget will be able to afford the trip There are a number of locations near the convention center for really good food: Saint Elmo's Steakhouse Bucca Di Beppo's The Oceanaire Mikado Registration opens in January.

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.
