    Rapture got a reaction from B Easy in Why Poke'mon should be supported-OptimizeVG   
    Just want to come in here and post this - I played Pokemon competitively, even in my time here at vVv. Competed at VGC for several years. 
     
    To be very honest, there's no point in vVv "supporting" Pokemon. It's a very online-based community and only has really one major event a year ran by The Pokemon Company/Nintendo. There's no real "eSports" presence for the game. There's no stability (no circuits, no regional events, VGC is only doubles and single elimination, etc.) and sponsorship would honestly do very little. 
     
    If I thought otherwise, I would have continued to support competitive Pokemon here at vVv. I stopped doing that in 2010.

    Every time IRGRL calls herself a, "domestic goddess," I am thankful we closed her app.

    It's not that, it's just an observation. As I said, this was never a problem before the large amounts of CoD players.


    I agree with your sentiment on Raw, tho. He's a good guy.

    I'd be fine with Metal getting the V's. He's active, seems like a chill dude, etc. I'd discourage him from being a non-member "recruiter" on other forums (advertising on other forums can go over not so well), but in the future he could be a good asset.
     
    Any more thoughts on MaBleek? I don't think I'll be endorsing him (although, I've only endorsed Tahvvy but I digress).

    As the resident Pkmn player at vVv, good luck! Hope we can talk pkmn afterward. I've competed in VGC several times in the past.

    I don't know what's hard to understand. I never bash the vVv CoD dvision. I never bash our team. I just bash CoD itself. Stop making it seem otherwise. Feel free to continue to lecture.
     
    Anyway, back on topic, as I've said earlier I've had no reason to endorse her, and I will continue not to endorse her. I don't think she's a good fit - if she gets in, I see her likely leaving or being removed in the near future over some drama.

    If that Bulletzz guy ever applies, don't accept him. I cannot stand people who just post in the forums to increase their post count, especially in old ass threads that don't need to be bumped.

    Agreed. At the very least, the 2-3 month minimum scared off anyone who didn't want to put the time in. Eventually they wouldn't be active and we could clean those apps up pretty quickly. And although the "surprise" of it wasn't necessary, it did add to the experience of it because, as you said, it was somewhat of a guessing game. It pushed some apps to work harder or get more involved, and those ones would benefit from the application process.

    I, ya boi vVv Rapture you know what it is, endorse Tahhvy.
     
    How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? I've conversed with him a multitude of times on the shoutbox and forums, seen him as a stream monster in my SC2 stream so I chatted with him there, and played a ton of CTF with him in the new Halo 4 Turbo update.
     
    What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)? We recently played a lot of Capture the Flag in Halo 4, and at the end of our massive session, we had one more game to play. I was personally exhausted, but I played it out anyway. We ended up winning a close game 5-4 in a game I thought we were gonna get stomped in. Tahvvy rolled with the punches just as I did.
     
    What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming? He's clearly adding value by being a consistent graphics designer around here, and his activity is rather evident. Furthermore, he's a blast to play vidya gaemz with, regardless of his skill. And, in fact, he is indeed a skilled player.
     
    How could they improve to be a better potential community member? To be honest, I think he conducts himself fine. He doesn't mind joking around but knows how to seriously contribute. Although I can tell that sometimes people can put his maturity into question, I don't see it as a problem.
     
    Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet? I mean, I think it's great that he's put what he has to offer right out on the table, so while I may not know of anything secretive, I do know that there's definitely more to him and I'm sure he'll continue to add value and improve as a vVv member as time goes on. He's already a step in the right direction. He's one of the few apps I am genuinely glad to have around.
     
    Do you feel that they know and understand the five pillars of vVv Gaming? I do believe so.

    100% yes to BodyRot and Raw. Both seem like great examples of what vVv is looking for and I want them to stick around longer.

    200% no and continuing on Razernok. Great example of someone I don't want in vVv.

    I def recommend endorsements for this guy. Just like BodyRot, one of the few apps I can see on the shoutbox always having good conversations on the shoutbox, showing that activity, being a contributing member, and all in all a cool guy to talk to. So I definitely want to see you stick around more and I hope you get those v's.

    Rapture got a reaction from Mannykacks in Why vVv should support Injustice Gods Among Us   
    Lol.

    League of Legends. Call of Duty. DOTA. Gears of War. Halo.

    All games we've supported or continue to support or have members/apps that play them...and now we're pulling the toxicity card? Come on, I don't buy that. If you're saying a community is too toxic, then we should drop our CoD division immediately or there's a blatant inconsistency here.

    I for one support this and will personally support Injustice regardless of vVv's general decision. I think we lost a good opportunity with Mortal Kombat 9, and if we had stayed in that field we likely could have had an easy transition into Injustice, and personally I see the game having a great competitive community.

    Also, to say that the FGC wants to keep things nice and small is completely false lmao.

    BTW: Posting two links doesn't prove your point. The gaming industry as a whole is having a huge problem with sexism right now, and you linked to a one-off internet reality show that people barely remember, had little importance, etc. One bad apple ruined it for everyone (and SFxT isn't even that bad of a game anymore).
