    vVv Doomhammer got a reaction from vVv Exodus in Archeage Unchained October 15, 2019 Launch   
    Alright boys and girls, we've been looking for a new game to play and we're thinking Archeage Unchained might be it. No pay to win! Fresh start on new servers! Trading packs for daaaaaaaaaaays!!!!!
     
    We're playing on the server DENISTRIOUS, and we're rolling on the West Faction (Dwarfs, Elfs, Nuians).
     
    (Silver pack is only 25 dolla!) So get in there and get ready to levelllllll!
     
    EDIT: SERVER CHANGE

    vVv Doomhammer got a reaction from Minotaur in New vVv Mission and Pillars   
    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?

    vVv Doomhammer got a reaction from vVv NerdPrblms in vVv T-Shirt Design   
    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?

    Indeed it is! Taking the fantastic work from Buzz and Pherzghul and revising it with your feedback we now have a new official vVv Logo.

     
    The next step is to add the logo type (the "vVv Gaming" text) and update our style guide, and once that's finished you can expect to see the new logo rolling out officially as we get the website updated.
     

    The alternative solid color version will be used on mediums or locations where a gradient is impractical or impossible.
     
    Thank you to everyone for your input and feedback during this process of change. It's sometimes difficult, but we have ended with an awesome result because of it.

    vVv Gaming is proud to announce vVv Exodus as the new president of the organization!
    Working with Lordjerith and Deathsgrasp, who will be stepping down from his leadership role to focus on personal life, Exodus has outlined a plan for vVv that focuses on building the community around the modern gaming experience.
    "All of us are grown, have jobs and can't devote 24 hours a day to gaming. We all have stressful lives and I want vVv Gaming to be a place where we all can come and have an escape, and have people to interact with and play with."
    As he starts by cleaning up and revitalizing the website and forums, expect to see more activity here and on the vVv Discord server as the organization gains new momentum.
    A deep thank you to vVv Deathsgrasp for his previous leadership, and welcome to vVv Exodus!
