vVv Saturn reacted to vVv Buzz in Return of the Community Spotlight?
Would everyone be interested in returning of The community spotlight? Since we are starting to unroll the new site its time to start pushing content. I believe we have enough members to be able to push a new article out bi-weekly. This will allow us to generate some content in and get our creative gears turning, bring the community closer through sharing our experience, and will give a stronger impression of the person behind the gamertag.
I would like to have the first article published on the forums June 13th, 2019 and the answers to the interview questions in my inbox no Later than 7 days in advance. This is to allow time for me to make any graphics needed for the article, any revisions or make any necessary corrections. We will choose the first community member by rounding up every current active member in a poll. We will release the poll via social media and allow people to vote for our first community member. Staff will be exempt from the polling along with anyone who has previously had a community spotlight. With plans to re-roll community spotlights for all previous members with updated criteria on the opposite week. after the first community member is chosen they will be able to announce the next candidate of their choosing. It could be anyone of staff, honorary member, or current vVv member
What is your feedback? I would like to know your ideas, thoughts, questions. how would you like to see the article written etc.

vVv Saturn reacted to vVv deathsgrasp in Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!
well I know I'm not an official member yet but I just wanted to put my 2 cents in.
why do I love vVv gaming? well, I haven't had the pleasure of being introduced to the all the old vets here but from the members, i have had the pleasure of talking too I must say. vVv member is some of the most welcoming and just straight forward people iv met in any community. sift through all the jokes and tomfoolery and you've got people who enjoy playing games and who are always open for conversations. (no matter how drunk I may be at the momment! ;D) then on top of that if you have any questions, no matter how trivial, they are always around to help out. anything from finding a team to improving your gameplay they not only will help coach you but will do so happy and willingly. I look forward to bolstering the vVv ranks and just having fun with all of you!
I may not be a member yet but this is why I love vVv gaming. Cheers!

Great read Bagz. Your particularly long posts are always awesome to read.
But I'm going to take your post one step further. I CHALLENGE current vVv members to reply with why they love being a member.
I have always been an explorer. No MMO ever has a class that I can play for more than a day or two. vVv Gaming has been a home now three years. I've been a member for about two and a half years. Every time I get an idea, I try to make it happen. Whether it be failing to start new divisions (reference Nosgoth and Heroes of the Storm), threw my hand at managing the Social Media accounts (I think Medusa and Robz can understand) and attempting to lead the Supersonic Series. Every time I've convinced myself to jump at a new project, vVv Members have always been there for me. Mentoring me to learn best practices, giving me people to look up to (LordJerith and Paradise), and goals to aspire to live out. Consider this my experiment to find my talents, I know I'm good at something, but I haven't quite found it yet. Consider this post my gratitude to awesome people I've met along the way. LordJerith for your unrivaled honesty, you truly are someone I look up to as a role model. Rob, you didn't quit on me when I struggled with handling the social media accounts, for that I thank you. Medusa for kicking my ass in gear to put my very best in everything I did. And Bagzli, for pushing me to be the very best version of me, no amount of thank's can ever give back the amount of time, patience, and energy you've given me. For that, I call you all friends, family, and people to aspire to become. For the next few months, I know I will be inactive. However, when I return from my study abroad, expect a new Saturn.
That is why I love vVv Gaming. That is why I am proud to be a vVv Member. And that is why vVv Gaming is the best fucking gaming community in the world.
vVv Saturn reacted to vVv Bagzli in Why I am proud to be a member of vVv Gaming!
Have you wondered as of late why people do some of the things they do? Take me for instance, I have a well-paid job for my age and work experience. There is a full career ahead of me. I also have a very specific set of tools within my belt that would allow me to join any community on the internet that I wish and yet I choose to stick with vVv Gaming. Why?
The answer to this question is actually rather simple, it is one word that was spoken to me a few days ago by vVv JasonParadise. Roots. He told me, you’ve got to remember your roots. Whether I have realized this just a few days ago or have known it all along, the truth stands. The force that drives me to lead vVv Gaming is that I want to give back the opportunities to those around me that have been given to me. I want the place that has started it all for me be the place that starts it all for you.
vVv Gaming has had many talented individuals pass through. If you take our owners, for instance, vVv LordJerith, vVv Doomhammer, and vVv RobZGod, they have started their gaming careers at vVv Gaming. They are now at Wargaming.net, and previously Riot Games. Heck vVv Lord Jerith doesn’t just work there now, he is an executive! To me that is incredible, to me that is inspiring and to be fully honest, I’m a little envious that they were able to do so much with vVv Gaming that it lead their life on a path to what I am considering a paradise. Even more amazing I find is that they still find time in the day to offer me advice and guidance when I need it.
We have had individuals start their careers at vVv Gaming and end up at Riot, Ubisoft, Curse, Naughty Dog, and even on the main stage of RLCS! Looking at Liefx and Lawler, I cannot be more proud of these two amazing individuals, who started their casting career with Season 2 of Supersonic Series and are now casting on the biggest stage Rocket League has to offer. It really makes me happy to hear stories like this.
I can go on for few pages as to why vVv Gaming is awesome, I can talk about how the leadership opportunities given to me here have helped me reach the potential of what I am capable of. I can tell you about an angry kid who lashed out at his clanmates over stupidest of things because he did not know how to handle pointless drama in an online gaming guild. This angry kid is by no means perfect today, he is a grown man who, like all of us, has a lot of learning and growing up to do. However, thanks to the guidance he has acquired within vVv gaming, he has learned many great qualities that come with being a leader. He also has a message for you all and I would be honored if you would pay close attention to what he has to say:
Each person is good at something, in fact, everyone is good at more than just one thing. It sometimes takes the right environment to bring those skills to light. It can take a lot of encouragement, friendship, and hard work to show the world your true potential. I have found mine thanks to the opportunities and support given to me here at vVv Gaming. As such I would like to help you find yours. There are mentors here who will help you learn, who will help you get on the right path. There are also numerous individuals here who just want to be your friends, because after all, what are gaming communities if not a group of friends who share common interests and are there for each other through the good and through the bad.
Why should you join vVv Gaming? To better yourself and people around you. To make friends for life and to create an environment that will live on to help future generations find their talents and survive in the cruel world that we know as the Internet.
I am vVv Bagzli, a proud member of vVv Gaming, and I urge you to not sell yourself short. To not allow others tell you that you can’t do it. If you have a passion for gaming and if you want to fill your belts with tools that we can offer, then hop in our Discord and chat with us. Tell us that you want to get involved, tell us what you are passionate about and then if you are ready to put in the hard work, we will help you thrive.
vVv Saturn got a reaction from vVv deathsgrasp in GoW 4
This thread hasn't been active since October xD. I think everyone realized "Oh yeah, finally a GoW for PC" turned into "Oh yeah, they made a GoW for Xbox and threw in a PC port because that's where everyone's at with no intention of taking it anywhere."
vVv Saturn reacted to vVv deathsgrasp in application - deathsgrasp24
yea im active duty national guard.... which basically means i get deployed just as much as active military but the difference is i only do 1 weekend a month for training and 2-3 weeks over the summer as apposed to active military does it as an every day job.... if that makes sense.... thats why i have a real job and not just military stuff all the time XD ill try to keep checking this if anyone else has questions!
if you are familiar with army active reserves then its just like that
vVv Saturn reacted to vVv Syracuse in Member Application - Bliss
I, vVv Syracuse endorse Bliss!
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
Bliss was the one who introduced me to vVv in the first place!! I've played with her in Rocket League and Overwatch for 4 months! What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
Bliss was and always has been a welcoming host to the vVv community. She's also dedicated to her position in the Rocket League staff. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
My favorite moment with Bliss would probably be our first doubles games together. It was fun to get to know her better, and hear her talk about Chase nonstop. Cute romantic story if anyone out there gets the chance to listen to it! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
Putting aside the fact that Bliss has been working for vVv longer that I have been a member, she is extraordinarily dedicated to this community. How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
Bliss is on every day, and already has at least 5 people who are willing to vouch for her to be a member. I think she has done more than enough to prove herself a worthy member of vVv. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
Bliss is a pretty awesome singer when she sings in the background. I like listening to her when we are playing together.
(HOPE YOU GET APPROVED BLISS, WOULDN'T BE HERE WITHOUT YOU!!)

vVv Saturn reacted to vVv Bagzli in Member Application - Broba TC
I, vVv Bagzli, endorse Broba!
How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out?
I have play a decent amount of games with Broba, but I can't say we play on regular basis. What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
My initial impression of Broba was that he is very energetic and that he has the potential to make a great caster. Over time my opinion has not changed. What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
Broba seems keen to help out, he was all too happy to accept the role of Stream Coordinator and from what I can tell he has been doing a fantastic job. He Volunteers his time outside of vVv Gaming, but understands and knows how to manage his priorities. From what I have seen he is a person to count on and I hope that he will show us what he is capable of now that he has all the tools to succeed. How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
I'd heavily encourage higher forum activity, if there is nothing to reply to, its ok to start a new discussion yourself! Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
He works hard, plays harder and is a blast to hang out with. His casting is better with each stream.
