  1. I'll be rolling a Warden, but I'm doing something crazy. I'm not going to be a tank!
  2. Hey all, Thanks for the great feedback. I'm going to suggest that we make the final decision on the t-shirt slogan once we've agreed on our new pillars. Please give your thoughts and feedback here:
  3. Hey All, I'm copying this over from the discussion thread, to get more visibility. We want to hear from you to determine the details and find leaders in the community. 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?

  5. I added a link a a google drive folder to download them instead. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1s6-oit50v8APbVXZqw9sgG4IRAd_cJF_?usp=sharing
  6. Jerseys ended up being a huge complication and cost. At this time we'll just stick with shirts. Attached is Pherzghul's initial simple mockup for some shirt designs. Shirt-vVvGaming.pdf
  7. Once again, thanks to vVv Pherzgul, we have put together a simple yet awesome design for the vVv Gaming t-shirts using the new logo. However, it is lacking anything to put on the back of the shirt. We could leave it blank so people could get them personalized, but another idea is to put a vVv slogan, something that sums up what vVv is, or what makes us awesome. We need your help to come up with some lines we could use! Here are a couple options to start you thinking. "Vision. Valor. Victory." A classic, and is the default option. "Entertain. Educate. Dominate." Feels outdated for the direction we're moving. "A digital city of gamers." Doesn't really translate into one line of text. These are just to get started. What are your thoughts? How would you sum up vVv in a single sentence? What do we want to say when people look at us?
  8. Added two additional ones, sized for Facebook and Twitter headers.
  9. Yep, I've noticed it as well. I'm working with them to get that fixed. Thanks for pointing it out
  10. vVv Gaming has officially launched our new website! Proudly partnering with local Las Cruces business We Are IT, the site has moved to a new cloud server host, and has gotten an overhaul both visually and functionally! This move has also included a forum migration, so while everything seems to be working following the move, if anyone sees anything broken, missing, outdated, or not functioning correctly, please post it in this forum thread so we can look into it.
  11. The new vVv Logo is here and vVv Pherzghul has gone above and beyond to create a library of different sizes and uses. These are available for personal use on forums, social media, live streaming, video, or anywhere else on the internet. Thank you again to everyone for sharing feedback and helping to make this logo so glorious. If the attachments do not work, here is a link to a google drive instead: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1s6-oit50v8APbVXZqw9sgG4IRAd_cJF_?usp=sharing vVv_Gaming_Brand_Standards.pdf vVvGaming_Final_Logo.ai
  12. The new website is almost complete and we will be making the switch tomorrow! Thursday 05/16/19, at 8am, we will bring the forums down to take a snapshot and port them to the new site. They will be down most of the day for the relocation and testing, and should be back up in the evening. Spread the word, and make ready!
  13. .AI files for the new logo are attached, as requested. vVvGaming_Final_Logo.ai vVv_Gaming_Brand_Standards.ai
  14. Ok, cool, thanks for the feedback. After one final tweak to fix spacing and outline, we have finished the vVv Logo along with the Logotype. The .pdf attachment is the vVv Logo Brand Standard stylesheet, which shows what variations are acceptable, color palette, and other details. Thanks again to everyone for your feedback. I look forward to seeing this on all of our new stuff vVv_Gaming_Brand_Standards.pdf
  15. @vVv ORION Do you have an example of what you mean by "birdman?" I agree it looks like a bird (that's part of the design), but I can't figure out what else it refers to. I also am not clear exactly why looking like a bird is bad? @vVv Buzz The red stroke was designed to make it more clearly visible against a black background. Is there another way you'd prefer to do it? Also, can you clarify what you don't like about the spacing?
