vVv Gaming Presents: Supersonic Series Season 2!
Posted on February 16, 2016 by vVv Bagzli
vVv Gaming is proud to present the return of the Supersonic Series! Three unique game nights each week will allow Teams and individual Rocketeers to bring their A game and level up their gaming skills! Whether the goal is to improve teamwork, find suitable opponents, or just acquire valuable feedback on how to improve one’s gameplay, these events will accomplish just that!
All of the events below will lead to a Season Finale where the best players and teams from the entire season will be allowed to participate! This season will last 8 weeks. Players and Teams with highest scores will be invited to the two final tournaments.
Our goal is to create an environment that Rocketeers wish to be a part of, an environment that encourages gamers to be competitive, to improve, and to help others grow. For Season 2, we have launched a Go Fund Me campaign to raise a prize pool for the finale tournaments. Throughout season 1 we have had many gamers approach us with a wish for a reward that is other than bragging rights at the end of the season, some have even offered to donate it themselves. As season 1 was our very first attempt, we have declined such offers.
If you would like to support Supersonic Series and make a donation, please head over to https://www.gofundme.com/5nkgh4fn
ALL GATHERED FUNDS WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE PRIZE POOL OF SUPERSONIC FINALE TOURNAMENTS.
Changes from Season 1
Our test season was very successful and we received a lot of awesome feedback. We have reorganized the point structure to reward teams in participating in the Showdown and encouraging solo players to connect with others and form teams on their own to be in the running for the finale. We have also made a document with all of the rules which we request ALL participants to look over in order to have the most positive experience in the Supersonic Series.
The Supersonic Series Rules & Regulations can be found here: https://goo.gl/qS2Crv
NOW ONTO THE GOOD STUFF!
Season 2 starts on March 1st 2016
The very first tournament, on March 1st, will be an invite only tournament that we are calling a "Kick Off". With this kick off tournament we are hoping to raise awareness of Supersonic Series to all rocketeers. Tournament will be streamed on our twitch channel, twitch.tv/livevvvgaming and we invite you all to come and watch what we hope to be a really awesome tournament!
A guide on how to register to participate in any of the nights below is here https://goo.gl/08gfiS

Participating with friends is encouraged, however there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the bracket and will be used to represent their team. Upon being selected onto a team, administrator will move you to appropriate channel.

Playing Games and Reporting Results: A tournament bracket will be created and can be accessed via http://www.vvv-gaming.com/RLBracket. (Note this link will take you to an external website that we use for hosting brackets and also this link will be kept up to date with the current active event). For all events above, the Admin will announce via TeamSpeak when the event has started. Once this happens you should contact the opposing team and host a private game among yourselves and play your best out of three matches. After you complete playing your match, one player from your team needs to report your score to the Admin. To keep things clean, please save replays of games you win in case we need to refer to them to prove a winner.
Point System: You will receive points for your participation in each tournament. These points will determine the top 8 teams and top 24 players that will participate in the two season finale tournaments. The first tournament will be hosted for the top 8 teams based on the team scores from Supersonic Showdown event. The second tournament will be hosted for the top 24 players based on the combined individual scores from all 3 events.
