  1. What would you like us to call you? Dark, Dark Star, D Shizzle; On second thought, Dark will do. What is your level (Age)? 24 years young Where ya from? The not so United Kingdom What games do you currently play? Counter-Strike, Dota 2, WarFrame, The Division What games are you looking forward to playing? No Mans Sky How did you hear about vVv Gaming? If it was by time travel device, please indicate the serial number. If by wizard, please indicate who. I applied a long, long time ago; 2008 to be exact. I successfully became one of the earliest EU amateur members of the community and enjoyed my time playing CoD4 and MW2 representing the community. Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How do you know them? Do you wish you didn't know them? Sadly, not anymore; I don't recall seeing many old faces after a quick looksie around the site. What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? Wait, what's "outside of gaming"? I've taken a keen interest in Digital Painting, Writing and Motorbikes ( GSXR here ) Do you have problems with toxicity or toxic behavior in game? If so, what have you done to reform this behavior? Would you like us to set you up with a "correctional administrator" (please submit $15 torture device maintenance fee)? I'm a competitive person by nature, we all dislike losing and whilst I may have the occasional outburst towards dying or making a stupid play; I ensure it is under wraps. I play for the team. Criticism is kept until after the game and in a constructive manner. When you play games, do you tend to grind games as much as possible, or do you often reflect on your mistakes and actively seek to improve upon them? Coming from a competitive background, I grind. I practice. I play a lot. At the same time, anyone who wants to be successful needs to evaluate decisions. I learn from mistakes, my own and others. Have you ever competed in or attended any online or LAN tournaments? National events? (PAX, LCS, IEM, etc.)? Stripper competitions? During the period of 2009/2011 I played in several Decerto online tournaments, not directly representing vVv, but wearing my tag - with other community members. What type of organization are you looking to join? What would the ideal environment look like for you? Would it have complementary pudding cups? I am looking for a place to reignite my competitive passion, alongside others with the same desires and ethos. Entertain. Educate. Dominate. Also, yes - it would have pudding cups! IQ Test Portion. Please complete the following sequences: E Pluribus Unum, shakeweight, candyland, Pudding Cups 1, 3, 69, 69, 69, Pudding Cups Kevin Bacon, Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Lucille Ball, Pudding Cups I, Fucked, Your, Pudding Cups I hope I can rejoin this great community again!
  2. Well, this place has changed!

  3. Chapter 4: Repayment 07:05AM 23/07/3952 Unknown location - Planet V-45. The early morning sun blazed through the treetops, creating shafts of light between leafs. Through the sunlight a red mist blew, a fine haze of the dark colour settled around where Martin lay. "Shit, get the aid kit! Raise the leg, stop the bleeding quick!" Ash shouted panicking. Holly just stood there, no emotion visible under her helmet. She shook herself and set about finding Her first aid kit, tearing through her bag as quick as she could. Hands shaking, she chucked the equipment to Ash. Martin awoke, coughing up blood as he raised himself on one arm. "What the fuck was that.." He groaned. "AP mine, one of the older models, Bouncing Betty I believe, lucky for you it malfunctioned, only went to knee level." Explained Ash, as he sprayed Bio-foam onto the wound. "Go, just leave me. Get out of here..." whispered Martin. "With all do respect sir, you're coming with us." replied Ash. Hoisting Martin up, they saw the foam form a cocoon over the the right knee of Martins leg, the rest had been turned into pulp. If they could extract Martin the Doctors on the ship could replace it with a synthetic leg. Ash turned to Holly: "Lets go, that explosion wasn't exactly quite." 07:15AM 23/07/3952 Unknown location - Planet V-45. Two guards patrolled the outside of a perimeter fence, walking closely together. Behind them was a small fuel depot. Joe positioned himself behind a formation of rocks, and watched. "This must be where they keep their vehicles." he said to himself. If he could get past the patrol and eliminate the fuel depot, then it might give them an extra advantage when seizing the main structure. He started to move toward the guards at a quick pace, he unsheathed his combat knife, stood up and slashed. It cut across the guards throat, dropping him to the floor, clutching at his throat gasping for air, unable to scream and slowly drowning on his own blood. The other guard turned to face Joe and raised his gun, Joe grabbed the barrel twisted it and landed a punch on the the cheek of the guard, knocking him to the floor, jumping down on the man Joe pulled the knife and thrust it through the Neck of the man, twisting it to destroy the neck and stop the man breathing. Joe cut his way through the fence using a pair of old wire cutters, and crept to the fuel station, pulling out a length of det cord he wrapped it around the tank, three times...just for good measure. He back off slowly, to a safe distance and pressed the detonator he heard the "Whoosh" as the flames rose to the sky, expanding out into a thick mushroom cloud. heart racing Joe started at a run towards the exit, hearing the rebel soldiers scream as they saw him. "Crack!" A bullet just passed his head, they had opened fire, running in zig-zags and random patterns he jumped over boxes and crates, hearing the thud or ping of the rounds hitting behind him. The adrenaline pumped through his body, he turned left, just avoiding the burst fire from a rebels assault rifle. He could see the exit now, no more than one hundred meters ahead of him. Out of his pocket he pulled two grenade, he pulled the pins and chucked them both behind him, sprinting faster and harder than ever he passed through the exit and disappeared through the undergrowth back into the dense forest. 07:20AM 23/07/3952 Unknown location - Planet V-45. "Stop!" panted Ash, they had carried martin on their shoulders for over a mile, they were coming up on the primary objective, in the distance they could see a mushroom cloud, someone had hit the outer base all ready. Ash glanced at Holly: "Must be Joe, C'mon We gotta help him!" Holly nodded, together they rested Martin against a tree and Holly passed him her sniper rifle, with two mags. Ash and Holly hurried down the hill, sprinting to the first row of cover, the soldiers were gathered on the other side of refinery. They set off across the yard to the first building, Ash barged the door down and pushed straight through to the other side. the walls were only thin, it was a bunk room, a round would go straight through, they had to find better cover. Ash climbed through the window and rolled into cover against one of the concrete barriers and called for Holly to follow. Ash looked around the rebels were disorganised, but they still outnumbered Ash and Holly. They had to try and slip past them, get to Joe and blow the refinery...easier said than done. Ash rolled out of cover and moved up to the next building, taking out a set of C4 and placing it in between the pipe and building, then waved for Holly to move up to, they needed to find three other Fuel pumps, chances were, guessed Ash, they would be in all four corners of the refinery. Ash began to move when a squad of rebel soldiers ran past, he noticed the captain bar of one and immediately opened fire upon the men, the rounds tore through them leaving gaping wounds and tearing limbs off, the captain was hit in the shoulder by a burst, the arm came apart and he fell to the floor. Ash shouted to Holly: "Lets go, I think they just realised we're here!" Sprinting they made for the other pump, Holly set up on a wall watching the pathway, whilst Ash planted another C4 on the pipes. "We're clear!" he shouted as he moved on. Together they set off to the third pipe, as they approached the gunfire became louder, there was a fire fight going on up here. Ash stopped and looked across, there were six soldiers firing at something. "Thats Joe, quick we gotta move!" said Ash They positioned themselves on a flank and chucked a flash bang at the soldiers, then moved out and let off a short burst of fire, the six men dropped to the floor, great chunks of meat torn out of them. "Thanks!" shouted Joe from behind cover, as he fitted another mag into his weapon. They regrouped by the third tank. "I've allready done this one, just the next sector then we're done!" said Joe. "Great, lets go." replied Ash. Regrouped they headed towards the fourth pump, they came across small resistance moving to the fourth pump, they got the charge set-up and planted, then started to move back towards Martins position. As they reached the hill they noticed a Battalion of heavily armoured troopers. moving in on the refinery, they wore the dark orange colour of the rebel forces. "We have to move, quick and fast, their the elite shock troopers." Breathed Martin. Ash had heard stories of them, they weren't nice. Ash picked up Martin and they started to move towards the extraction point. A sharp crack snapped past Joes ear, they had been spotted. "MOVE!" roared Joe. The group hurried, trying to cover Ash as he carried Martin. there was a bridge ahead and the extraction was about five hundred meters beyond it, they moved on, Joe went ahead to start up the Transport. Ash spoke: "Even if we get to it, its going to take at least five minutes to start, we'll never make it!" "Go..." said Holly. "What?" Martin and Ash both spoke at the same time. Holly turned, on her back just below the lung was a gradually expanding reddy-brown colour. "I got hit, back on the hill." she gasped "We can use bio-foam? 'till we get back the ship? We can heal you up there!?" Exclaimed Ash. Martins face wore a grave look: "Ash you know Bio-foam only stops bleeding, it cant heal a punctured lung, Holly, are you sure?"Gasped Martin "Consider it repayment...for Omega-56." Grimaced Holly. Martin nodded, Ash looked and nodded. then carried Martin towards the transport. Holly looked across the bridge. Not one of those men were getting across. she planted four C4's on the pillars of the bridge and set up behind one of the hangovers on the side of the bridge. the top of a troopers head appeared on the hill, she let rip with the sniper rifle, catching him between the eyes, no more troopers popped up, she kept her sight ready. Ash, lifted Martin onto the ship, the engines were warming up. Ash climbed onto the ship and pulled out the side gun and aimed down the narrow path between the trees. "ETA, three minutes!" Shouted Joe over the engines. Ash said nothing, watching the tree line hoping to see Holly running back ready to go. Holly had dispatched three troopers so far, they came one at a time, easy pickings. She looked back at the bridge and saw a line of seven approaching, they lay down suppressing fire, she couldn't move, the cracks and whizzes of rounds barely missing her sounded overhead. She picked up her SMG and let off a burst over her head, she heard the thumping sound as some shots connected. The rest of the company of troopers moved up, there were over forty, Holly stood up. Just over her head she seen the transport start to hover. She stared at the men and opened fire, she let out a scream so loud the men faltered, then she let rip with her SMG, emptying the clip into them, as the gun clicked empty she closed her right hand. From above in the Ship, Ash saw the explosion on the bridge and then the explosion at the refinery, the shock wave knocked the ship slightly. He raised the Ramp and sealed the back room, to allow them to stay in there during the space flight. Ash turned and looked at Martin, they both nodded and then returned to looking into nothingness. "ETA, five minutes." Came Joes voice over the com. They were returning to the Cruiser.

  5. Haha you guys have put in an app! I've known Raza ( vA Toxic) for a loong time, he's sound, hoped into a game with the other lads and they all seemed pretty safe. Their attitude is positive, when losing they keep their cool and focus on giving each other support. For the guys who are asking what promod is - SnD 5v5 perks off lol (Basics) Definitely have the right attitude to reflect positively on vVv. Good luck on your apps guys!
  6. Is amazing...end of....

  7. Is amazing...end of....

  8. Cool, fair enough Will talk to shluu then, and see what I can do to help Thanks LoL sods law, the week i put in an app i would move rooms, so i cant use my laptop all the time yet lol
  9. Fair enough VnX Any more feedback on the application?
  10. For an effective trial - it would need to last a long time you dont just get alot of people applying and pick-up teams in a week, you need to set out a string and reel them in, you need to place offers for teams and see how they meet them and whether they can add value in the right way. Infact, I would say that by being a much smaller scene, it is infact more difficult to attract players, especially seeing as alot of teams, unless they are purely GB teams are allready in an organisation, or are looking for full coverage straight away to all events.
  11. I understand you point but at the starting stages we'd need to take it slow. Start by finding the right people who are willing to apply and stay loyal and can promote vVv in the right manner, then slowly start to add to the Eu side. When there's as much hate as there is for vVv in Europe, you need to be very careful how you go about promoting vVv. The respect for vVv has plummeted in Europe (No idea why?) and so it will be a slow build to get us to the level the US side is at.
  12. Good luck mate Seems like I've got some tough competition here
  13. Exactly, a large reason vVv has been very successful is due to the support shown by the Fans and community, the US side has a huge amount of support and I would like to see this from Europe too. Although I understand it would take a long time to reach the same level as the US.
  14. Thanks mate, some of the people....like Crookz and mellow dont like me much, but i just take that for granted lol as they dont really like vVv at all.....
  15. Thanks mate Dancing bunny appreciates
