****Warning! Long, detailed post. Here are the results from our eSports Survey (n=398). We will use these results to guide our strategy for 2012. The first two charts show that although most of the respondents own many gaming consoles, the two primary gaming platforms are the Xbox 360 and the PC (Chart 1 and Chart 2). Being the most accomplished console organization in the world, it is no surprise that the Xbox360 (41%) edges out the PC (36%) as the most used platform for gaming. Chart1 Chart2 When looking at the games actually played, we could see the console focus more as Call of Duty and Gears of War rose to the top of games played. On the PC side, it is important to note that League Of Legends was PLAYED more than Starcraft 2. Game Informer magazine visitors spend on average 18 hours playing video games. The majority of our community spends more than 24 hours a week playing video games, showing that as competitive gamers, we game more than the average. When we look at games being watched, we see that two very interesting trends: Starcraft is watched by nearly two-thirds of our community (60%), proving that more people WATCH SC2 than play SC2. Call of Duty is the most watched and the most played console game Three-fourths (77%) of our members watch at least 3 hours of streaming per week. On both the console and the PC platforms, many of our visitors and members purchased at least 15 games per year. When we asked respondents to tell us which games LACKED quality content, Call of Duty, Halo: Reach and Gears of War 3 all rose to the top. Although BF3 was in the mix, when we asked to narrow it down to ONE game that respondents most wanted to see quality content, it was Call of Duty (17%) and Gears of War 3 (15%) Overall, this indicates that console titles lack quality content. A majority of respondents said that they visit the vVv Gaming Website more than once per day, and over 82% visit our site at least once a week. As far as our website, there were little surprise when it came to the features that are most used, like our forums and shoutbox. The new website has increased the use of the home page, and we also see that the video feature is popular with over half of the respondents reporting they use this feature (52%). When we asked respondents to pick ONE feature, the forums came in a strong first, followed by the shoutbox and videos. There was little surprise on the features most used on our forum profiles with the "About Me" section coming out on top. Getting more sponsors and more ads (41%) edged out frequent donation drives (33%) as a primary way to increase revenue in 2012. 77% of our users are ages 18-29 and 94% are male. So, what does all this mean for 2012? I am happy to see that we are doing many things right. The one thing we need to do better is our investment in and content surrounding Call of Duty. Here is a preview of some of the things to expect in 2012: Sponsor a Call of Duty team Create content/media for Call of Duty Create content/media for Gears of War 3 Establish brand champions in all our divisions (SC2, LoL, CS, MMO, GoW , CoD, Halo, FIFA, Fighting) Add more partners Conduct two large donation drives Explore opportunities in Halo:Reach Explore opportunities in DotA 2 Explore opportunities in CS:GO Add Guild Wars Add Diablo 3 Continue Wednesday Night Starcraft, The Losers Bracket and Directional Influence Continue promote bloggers and create general gaming content Continue writing for Chicago Tribune Geek to Me Blog Continue League of Legends 1v1 tournaments I look forward to the hard work in 2012.

It's been a long time since I decided to divulge in a blog, and I think it's time to hop back on the saddle. This blog isn't going to be about PC, Call of Duty 4, or any of the standard stuff you can find in one of my forum posts. I think at the end you will see a true vVv gamer and hopefully a reason to want to be a part of this great organization. Flash back to the fall of 2009. A team filled with players I had known for a year had just joined vVv Gaming. At the time, vVv Gaming was relatively unknown in the PC Call of Duty landscape. I had just come back from an extensive break in the competitive gaming scene and I was looking to get back into it. As a result of this, I joined my friends on the vVv team. My initial thoughts on vVv were, "Wow. That is a pretty lame name." A few months went by, and we had some decent results together as a team. Soon after, there was a point where it all changed for me. My outlook on gaming, vVv, Call of Duty 4 and even some aspects of life changed instantly. One random day, LordJerith popped into our Ventrilo channel and asked how I was. We talked about school, gaming, sports, ideas for the future and more. Seeing the passion that Jerry has for his teams and the players on them changed how I wanted to approach what I was doing. Up until this point I was happy with just being good at games. Jerry challenged me to do something more than just contribute my playing ability. Despite some of my "confidence" at the time for being a great player, I was still unknown. It was during this conversation that I told him I want people to think of vVv when they hear the alias Cubed. Two years later, I think I have achieved that goal. Now here is where it gets tricky. Only being good isn't enough anymore. I realize that this could ruffle a few feathers, but I think it's something worth being said. Only being good is NOT enough to be in vVv, but being in vVv should be more to you than just representing a great organization or getting to wear their tags. I see this a lot where an individual is happy just being in vVv. They are happy just being a part of it. Don't get me wrong, vVv wouldn't what it is without the many different levels of gamers on it. If you are on this team to be a competitive gamer, however, then you shouldn't be happy only wearing the tags and getting your t-shirt. Being a part of vVv should make you want to surpass the names of old. Be better than the glory days of Gears of War. Be better than some of the great console players we have. Be better than all of the SC2 players. In gaming and life you shouldn't be happy to be just as good as someone else, you should always want more. If we are happy where we are, then we're not striving for anything. If we're not striving for anything, then we don't have any goals. These don't have to be huge goals or strives, but you need to be going forward. Maybe I'm just ranting or maybe I'm just more competitive than most people, but every single day I try to do something better in life and gaming. If you aren't going to do your best at something - then why do it at all? In short, what I'm saying is be happy for what you have achieved, but don't be afraid to challenge yourself to be that much better at whatever game you play, or in real life. Don't be afraid to run that extra mile, or finally talk to that girl. I hope that this can help some of the younger members in vVv because I have been lucky in life to have a few people teach me some very valuable lessons through sports. It was rare and refreshing to have someone like Jerry do that for me through gaming and through vVv.
