New vVv Mission and Pillars

Recommended Posts

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?

My thoughts:. And I'm quite serious:

Imagine you are in the future. You're in a world filled with AI/VR. What would the "country club" of the future look like if it was online? What would YOU want out of it?  What would make it worth your time to socialize with people here?  What are the qualities you want from new members?

I think we should think about vVv with the goal of QUALITY over QUANTITY. For now, the closest idea I can come up with is a country club or private club of some kind.

vVv had a lot of really cool things going for it back in the day. It always had this exclusive country club type vibe but for gamers. That is good, it exclusivity kind of has its own way of increasing desirability. However i imagine you need to balance this exclusivity with ways to still maintain a larger support outside of it for business viability. vVv was successful in the past at this and can likely do so again.

I imagine multi-game tournaments could be fun, however I think this could go two ways. 1. the community sees it as a novelty. eSports has flourished lately with single-game competitions and im not sure people are going to necessarily want to watch gamers be pretty good at several games when they could watch people being amazing at just 1. 2. on the other hand this would allow a significantly lower barrier for entry and allow for a lot more accessibility to gamers to participate. This could allow for a lot of people to flock to this new innovative competitive scene. Is the larger community ready or interested? Who knows? Lord Jerith mentions 'quality over quantity' and a multi-gaming tournament could be seen as the opposite.

The strength of your community is integral to your success. One of the reasons Eve online is still alive and well after so many years and so many of its competitors failing, is because of its strong tight nit community. Getting into a lot of the strong Eve groups requires proving yourself in a number of ways and being a fit with the culture of the group. Focus on things people can rally around, sponsoring popular or up and coming streamers, and having community events is a great way to do those things.

Everyone who knows me knows I love to talk to new people/apps and I am happy to help anyone at all. I would love for apps to actually reach out to people in vVv and ask to play with them. That’s what I did back in the day and that’s how I met so many amazing people. I am starting to get more serious about streaming. I need to start making YouTube videos as well so hopefully everyone who makes content can all help each other out. We should all want each other to succeed because that just helps everyone out!

I do like the idea of a multi-game tournament, but do believe vVv should still support single game tournaments. Even if they are just for bragging rights every once in a while. Part of what makes vVv a place I keep coming to is the spirit of friendly competition that most of share.

From my understanding and what ive seen in the shoutbox we have had community game nights but people are getting butt hurt because someone does not show or ends up being late. You dont really need them to start if someone is not there why is no one moving on and taking charge and continuing with the event anyways? Rather than having a CGN for the games people play every day like apex, fortnite, and gears. Lets focus on other games, the freedom of GTA and other Open world games offer lots of possibilities, of things we can do as a group.  Find some sort of exclusivity to the event to get people to attend.  Back in the day for CoDMW2 we used to get people to attend by dropping nukes and making it our goal to just have 2 hours of straight nukes on kids.  find a common goal or something and focus the event around that. Another thing I may suggest and would like to see is the return of vVv Community Teams on GameBattles. This was always a fun team building exercise and allowed us to interact with other members outside the community through competition. I believe its important to stick to our competitive roots, and this would be a great way to do it without getting heavily involved in esports. CGN's would consist of like an hour of community matchups or scrims followed by 2-3 live GB games, we would have to come up with a system to decide who plays in the live games. This could also give us some content to stream on the vVv channel similar to like we did with Friday night starcraft if we choose to go that route. But it would be more like an hour of CGN matchups, with 2 hosts commentating, and if we could get a special guest, that would be cool too, we could use this sort of as a prelim and used as a podcast go over news events interviews etc. then move into the 2-3 GB matchups. or something along those lines. 

Ive been very open about helping people with graphics and ideas etc. I have helped on producing new ideas on many previous projects, graphics, streams, podcasts, articles, and social media. Im still here to help and constantly posting to help, the only person who has shown any real interest was stitches, whom I have yet  to get back too (dont worry buddy ill sync up with you after this) . I would like to see more feedback from community members encouraging them to suggest and try new ideas. Members have been too comfortable here and just posting "looks great" with no real feedback. We cant advance and grow to produce quality product without new and creative ideas.  we can't do this without pushing each other to go above and beyond to produce quality. People need to loose the vVv is here to help me idea and realize that's not possible unless they help vVv.

If we are able to pull something like this off we are definitely a well enough established name in esports, I would want to see this go ALL THE WAY. This is something I would want to see vVv completely legitimize and own it. With paid registration, cash prizes trophies etc.  with the goal of becoming a "Farm League" or "Minor League" to Esports.
 

Tomorrow's a new day, it's the internet we all have things going on in our lives no one here is against anyone or here to sabotage anything. we all say/do things that another user thinks may or may not like, people need to just back off and re approach the situation. It's natural for arguments to happen in a diverse environment  of creative leaders. If there is never a clash of heads, nothing will get done and quality will go to shit because no one is pushing to pursue and innovate new ideas. At the end of the day we are all vVv and someone else's failed project is a reflection of us all. We need to work more together, to promote and create the best.

No comment necessary. Action Is swift and appropriate.

I believe it's Time to erect a staff... Create some type of formality, responsibility, and create accountability

Create a staff with weekly meetings, and have more formality standards to site operations, Social Media, and the content we're putting out there. Unless it was posted by Jerry, Doom, there has been no formality to any posts regarding site news and information. Our vVv Twitter Looks like a joke. What I would like to see is everyone in vVv to either take up or group up on a weekly or bi-weekly project to better vVv and own it this would really get the ball rolling.  Use our social media to promote these (with discretion) No need to promote 50 ideas at once. I would like to see vVv Operate its stream and generate content as its own brand meaning if were doing a community game night and someone is streaming, It needs too be streamed on the vVv Gaming account. before it can be streamed on another members channel. we need structure, schedules, and responsibility. It seems like everyone here is just leeching the life out of what vVv Gaming was to promote their own streams or agenda. this is going to just run it into the ground. Not much is being brought back to the community, it seems there is not initiative to do anything to promote vVv Gaming. I've posted several ideas throughout the year and it seems nobody wants to get on board and work as a team to pursue any of these all I get are sounds good. If were all here to push a product we should be posting to better the product and support each other's ideas. I think we should only give streamer titles to people who are approved for partnerships by the host provider we need to keep structure to streamers similar to how we limited groups to titles such as gears of war to our pro players and community members who displayed profound efficiency in the given title.  This gives us quality assurance, and allows us to help promote and develop new talent.

I can volunteer for excellence, I think Ill be a good fit since I seem to just piss excellence. I will use my skills in quality assurance to help push and produce a quality product. I could Provide Graphics, manage content, and offer plenty of creative advice to help oversee and improve content.  I could be useful overseeing and helping produce any and all content as a content manager.

im always stressing quality. right now i say our quality is absolute shit, Our social media is tanking very heavily, "do you wet your toothbrush before you apply toothpaste?" like what kind of waste my time tweet is that? thats some serious uncle woody's clan shit. I cant stress the importance of social media enough but bringing up that we are in a world of AI/VR we have to remember social media isnt make a post and everyone who follows us, is not going to see it anymore, social media took a huge surge in popularity and so many posts are made throughout the day AI actually filters through everyone's timelines and disregards posts they feel are not relevant to us as users, granted there is an option to maintain twitter and set your timeline up to show tweets chronologically but we have to go out on a limb and assume most users do not have this set up. Social media is set up on a current algorithm based on a point system, and the value is different for each follower. So generating questions like this is something probably only our apps and members will partake in. with that beings said we just lost points in the virtual twitter ranking system.  Our social media needs to stay on topic with current gaming events, topics, and ideas. This is important because when we do have an event to promote we want our audience to see it, without having to spend money on twitter advertising (yes sometimes this does happen where you need to spend money for your own following to see it). Also Retweets a bit ridiculous too we don't need to retweet every post a vVv member makes or these posts about ditching school. They should be retweeting us not the other way around. The announcement of this post on the vVv gaming Twitter should have been published from the vVv gaming account and not retweeted from a member.  So in the future I would like a more elegant professional and resourceful social media account, with standards and guidelines to posting similar to what we have done in the past. Less targeted towards our community and more towards an audience. 

Forums could also use some work, but yesterday several posts were bumped from 2013 my first reaction reading is like the fuck does the OP have to do with anything related to anything. I'm not pointing fingers, but the user was a moderator, if they were this deep in the forums they should have been closing out and archiving these threads and if they felt to resurge the topic recreate it rather than bumping them. Our forums need to stay clean updated and relevant to the time. Our forums are supposed to be the hub of our community so it should remain relevant and inviting to all of our guests, to encourage them to apply. From a guests perspective when i see the most dated post is a topic from 2013 I just assume dead forum. 

I would like to keep vVv Gaming seen as a professional organization and not the way its currently being displayed on twitter I want the structure and discipline it had before where we had a group of individuals ready to work on vVv related products. Constantly promoting new ideas to promote vVv Gaming, there is no ownership or structure everyone is just like yeah were going to save vVv. But no new vVv related content is being generated. It was working on these projects that lead to our success in the past, everyone who went on to do successful things in their careers because of what they learned working on the vVv Gaming related projects. Its a machine the gears wont turn if their going in opposite directions. If people want vVv to represent them, they have to do their part.

The qualities I want to see are people being creative and innovative, I want to see new ideas and take on new projects. I think its important to still think about the growth and future of vVv gaming because as seen before we never know what we could get swept into as a team because of our projects. This current Idea of just being a community of gamers who play together, then all we are are the people who exo quotes as jackasses and ran this community into the ground but at least they had structure and I knew they were playing certain times and everything was less chaotic, they promoted their own events and had a sense of direction. Instead of crying about weather one person was late or didn't show. we carried on and played anyways, if something i did was wrong it was discussed via pm rather than in the shoutbox or discord. We need the Structure and system in place like we have had in the past. and weed out the people here for popularity and fashion. Before vVv Gaming was a resource of information, now looking at our social media i feel its just free ad space for everyone's stream, and childish off topic tweets and retweets. The daily gaming discussion is good, and this idea should be used to promote gaming related topics on our forums and generate content. here. but random questions like wetting our toothbrushes and retweets about pros and cons of ditching school etc. should be discussed on whoevers personal twitter account. same for retweets on streams vVv gaming should be only tweeting out established and approved events and we as community members should be relying on each other and each others followings to retweet each other. the vVv gaming twitter needs to be a privilege and protected as so people should earn their spot to be retweeted and used for ad space. If we want to be community based everyone has to lose the mentality of sitting around saying what can vVv do for me and start doing for vVv thats how communities work.

Thank you for underlining the new pillars and mission. I will support and commit to these new pillars, whether it be for myself, another vVv member, or anyone in general. I love the look of this new direction vVv is taking, and can't wait to put everything into it.

If we want to be community based everyone has to lose the mentality of sitting around saying what can vVv do for me and start doing for vVv thats how communities work. 

I like the sound of this, I like the competitive route you brought up. It could really make easing into the esports community a breeze. I know of vVv for the competition and what the teams under the org have done for the org. I think competing reaches out to a long list of players that could eventually make vVv what it once was. If thats where we wanna go with it IMO.

I feel Buzz has the right of it, and really its part of the reason i had just written vVv off for the last several years. These new pillars sound great, but ultimately if no one has drive and motivation i don't see things changing for the better. i really did love my time in this community back in 2010-2013 and even contributed quite a bit of my time to help it succeed; but looking from an outsiders position right now: vVv seems to be in a position that it really needs an injection of leaders who want to take this as seriously as jerry and jordan did back in 2010.

Blazek! That's what we're doing brother, small steps but got a lot going. Got a new site and logo, new merch soon, strong staff assembled, really pushing streaming, looking for someone to run our YouTube channel, CGN'S across all platforms in place. Discord managers that revamped it and it looks great. Gonna get our Twitch channel rocking soon, we have had tons of apps, admitted many great people. Daily cleaning the site that wasn't touched for 5 years, I came back to rock it. It's all a process, social media has been corrected, we're looking into in house tournaments for those that want to compete as we're solely focused on the community, possibly starting a podcast again. Looking into possibly bringing bloggers back , want to get people jobs in the gaming industry if that’s what they want to do.  I like you wrote it all off too, that's why I decided to come back and right the ship. You were a great vVv member, your blogs were amazing. I am here to stay,  it all won't happen overnight but it's come a long way since I came back.

Blazek! That's what we're doing brother, small steps but got a lot going. Got a new site and logo, new merch soon, strong staff assembled, really pushing streaming, looking for someone to run our YouTube channel, CGN'S across all platforms in place. Discord managers that revamped it and it looks great. Gonna get our Twitch channel rocking soon, we have had tons of apps, admitted many great people. Daily cleaning the site that wasn't touched for 5 years, I came back to rock it.

Thats great to hear, wishing the best for you and your leadership. I came by after seeing a post about things getting revamped and noticed the discord had a lot of things changed around so i figured i wanted to see what was going on. It would warm my heart to see this community rise again.

Thank you brother, I will make it rise again to the days you were here. That’s what I want and what vVv deserves. Glad you popped in my friend, you’re a vVv OG for life far as I am concerned and worthy of honorary member as well. Keep in touch my friend, would love to catch up and game some.

What’s the possibility of using the official vVv stream channels to host various members? Ideally we could have vVv streams going 24/7 if we had a streaming schedule in place and enough people to fill it. That way there is always (or almost always) a vVv stream going that members, applicants, and community members in general can jump in and interact with each other.

A lot of us have overlapping schedules so it would be hard but I think my stream and some others are set up to stream on vVvs twitch

Maybe when there isn't someone playing live is there any way to stream some saved gameplay or throw a podcast in there? Just saying so that 24/7 idea could work if that's possible call it Victory TV or vTv Idk lol just throwing ideas in the mix or maybe it's already been done.

I’m not sure, a podcast I’m seriously considering, would be monthly to start and based off how it went that could change. I’ll find out about Twitch but I don’t think you can stream saved gameplay. I want active streamers within vVv streaming on our Twitch channel. I’ll get with Vish on all that tomorrow, CGN’s I want streamed live on Twitch for sure.  After Vish and I talk, I’ll update everyone.
