vVv Gaming Presents: Supersonic Series

Posted on October 31, 2015 by vVv Bagzli

vVv Gaming is proud to present our newest competitive game nights for Rocket League!  These game nights will allow Teams and individual Rocketeers to bring their A game and level up their gaming skills in three unique events each week!  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! Each season will last 8 weeks (subject to change based on the feedback received in season 1).  Players and Teams with highest scores will be invited to the two final tournaments.

 

In order to create an environment that Rocketeers wish to be part of, an environment that encourages gamers to be competitive, to improve, and help others grow, we have made the first season a “test run”.  What this means is that for the first season finale we will not be providing prizes to the winners.  We hope that the first season will give us enough time to gather feedback from the participants in order to ensure quality of the event.  Dependant on the success of the event, prizes will be introduced at a later time.

 

Season 1 starts on Tuesday November 3rd.

 

 

Supersonic Draft 

When: Every Tuesday night starting at 9:00 PM EST (6:00 PM PST)

Where: Our TeamSpeak server (setup guide found here)

Format: 3 vs 3 - Double Elimination Tournament, Best out of 3 games, Captains Draft Mode.

 

How to Participate: Visit http://vvv-gaming.com/RLRegister, follow instructions on how to sign up and then join our TeamSpeak server at least 5 minutes before starting time! You will have to perform these steps for each game night that you participate in.  Players with the highest solo ranking will be elected as captains and will pick players that they want on their team. Captains will take turns picking their members in a “snake-style” (A, B, CC, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. 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 on to a team, administrator will move you to appropriate channel. Channels will be renamed after team captains.

  • Participating alone: After filling out the form above you will be in a free-agent pool available to fill in any spot’s teams may need. Check-ins will be 15 minutes before the start time so we can get everyone organized.  A team may contact you to play with them or we may put you on a team right before the event starts.

  • Participating with a team: After filling out the form above, you will have secured your spot in the tournament (provided you connect to our TeamSpeak server at least 5 minutes prior to event starting).  If you are seeking a third player for the evening, you can view our Free Agent list located here: http://vvv-gaming.com/RLRegister and contact them to be part of your team.  Should you not acquire a third team member on your own, please show up on TeamSpeak at least 15 minutes prior to event starting and we will assign you a third player if one is available for the duration of the night.

 

Note: A channel will be created specifically for your team under your team name that will be for your use throughout the evening.  Should a channel not be created upon you joining TeamSpeak, contact one of the event administrators and they will create the channel for you.

Rocket League

 

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 ouf 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.

 

Casting: We are looking for dedicated casters to stream these tournaments. Until we find these individuals we will be streaming the games played, however there will be no commentary.  If you are interested in such a role, you can find more details here: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/announcement/2-twitch-caster-opportunity-for-rocket-league/

 

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 Showndown event.  The second tournament will be hosted for the top 24 players based on the combined individual scores from all 3 events.  Keep in mind that participating in Supersonic Showdown event will earn Team Points as well as half of the total team points towards your individual points.  For example if your total Team point score was 10 points, you will earn 5 individual points.  This has been done to encourage individual players to participate in the “Supersonic Showdown” event and help fill out teams that are missing a player for the evening.
