The State of vVv Gaming

Let's have some fun ;-)

With the year half over, it is time for me to update the community on our progress in 2012. I was debating how to best to do this, but I will start with the one thing I want to focus on. I know this is going to seem really strange coming from me, but I want to focus on fun.

Yes, fun.

Look, we have worked really hard this year. We have made a lot of changes to make our processes and community better. Applications are streamlined. We grew a very successful fighting games division. We are growing a fantastic League of Legends community. Here are my thoughts in order of our priorities for the rest of the year.

League of Legends

This game is front and center. We have an awesome community. We have great in-house matches. We have a young core team (partial team) with great personality, and they’re starting an awesome journey. I think this game has so much more potential as time goes on. With Riot’s great support, this game looks to explode as it enters its 3rd season next year. This is front and center for me. To be honest, I can’t imagine anyone not playing this game. OK, maybe not vVv Amped. He loves Dota2. But then again, League of Legends is free. . . and dare I say, fun.

Guild Wars 2

I know. It’s not out yet. How can you put GW2 before Starcraft? Starcraft is established. It’s kinetic. Guild Wars 2 is all potential energy right now, and I want vVv Gaming prepared to grow a lasting, well-respected guild. With the return of vVv Jolly, and so many new faces, this is a game that will not only grow our membership and reach, but it will be fun. (There is that word again). Finally, I know many of you can’t wait. Might I make a suggestion? In the meantime find vVv Rinzler and PvP with him in Bloodline Champions, another game that is free and fun. If you prefer PvE, you can join me in The Secret World, a unique MMO that gets high praise for its strong influences from H.P. Lovecraft and other famous horror settings, along with innovative storyline and unique structure.

Starcraft

OK SC2 fans, don’t hate, but our growth here will always be players who are looking to develop their skills. You know we would never invest the amounts other teams would to purchase top talent. In fact, we reduced our investment by removing WNS and reducing our sponsored players to just Glon and Ruff. Why? Good question. I am happy to announce that we are going to launch a Starcraft Training Consortium (League of Legends will have one also). More will follow in the next two weeks. If you like SC2, and want to develop as a player, this will be the place to be. Just look at what happened to our very own vVvToXSiK. Plus, our training consortium promises to be fun.

Fighters

We all know CDjr, Romance and RTD. If not, checkout our YouTube channel for interviews. We were sad to see REO quit MK9, but we are excited to keep supporting and being entertained by our players. This is probably the easiest category of games (fighters) in the eSports arena to watch. I should also mention that watching fighting games is not only easy, but fun.

Counter-Strike

Can you believe we have Counter Strike: Source team going to ESEA Finals? With the 4th seed, they are sure to entertain. You can read all about here. I should mention that this puts us in a great position n to support the new CS:GO for all those shooter fans who have waiting for something new. And our team is really fun to watch.

FIFA

We recently had our very own Michs09 explain why MLG should look seriously at FIFA13. I would not be surprised to see more sports games show up in various leagues as they compete for growth and to increase their reach. Did I mention that Michs09 is a fun player to be around?

CoD4:PC

Yes, we still play. Yes, we still have vVv Cubed making this game awesome and showing it off with is amazing videos. Yes, we are still one of the top teams in North America. Yes, it's still fun.

Halo4/CoD BO2/GoW: Judgment

These three titles all have potential. Halo looks the most polished, CoD by far has the largest fan base, and GoW started vVv Gaming dominance in console gaming. We will support all and any of these games if they have LAN events. Period. We hope they all do. Until then, don’t think we forgot how much fun these communities, drama and matches can be.

We keep our eyes out on other titles like Firefall, Smite and Divekick. There are more, but you get the point. We look at any opportunity to recruit great people, create a great experience and win. We will look to develop fun content. Everyone is doing news and serious stuff, we are looking for something creative and unique. Something about eSpoets that is FUN! Think about our mission statement, as I find it helpful to read it again sometimes to keep myself focused..

My advice this summer: Have fun. Seriously. You all deserve it.

in my opinion, not only should MLG consider FIFA 13, but they should also consider NHL 13. Without a doubt, these two games are also games that everyone should play. Talk about having fun, these two games are incredibly fun and are highly replay-able. Where else can you take out anger by checking an opposing player through the glass of a hockey rink, or onto the bench, steal the puck and snipe the puck into the top right corner of the net. NOT TO MENTION MY BOY CLAUDE GIROUX IS ON THE COVER OF NHL 13

We need some type of sports game in MLG I can see the fan base growing just an inch if not a foot more. It will be even better if Gw2 can be implemented some way into MLG...Would be nice to see 5v5 matches on the big screens

PvP in GW2 only matters if people want to go to lans, which I doubt.

http://images.wikia....ogath.move7.ogg <-- What I first thought when I read this (Yes I think in Gentleman Cho'gath's voice, come at me bro ;3) No one in GW2 wanting to go to LANS? Nonsense! I'll go to every one I possibly can! :D

Great update though ^_^

Fun should be what it's all about.

(Personally though,, I'm just waiting for the return of GH, so yeah XD. Oh, and I'll dabble in SCV a little, too.)
