http://social.xfire....es/villanousity <--- our old Community site, planning to bring it back, Hresa if youre reading this shoot me a pm.
If you have a steam account, you can register using that.



Add me : Someone500

I'd like for everyone who plays LoL to get X-Fire, we all used to use this back in SoV's hayday, (i've got 94 contacts all old SoV members that used to always be online, and I'd like to get back to that.) and I firmly believe that it will play an important role in bringing activity up.

With xfire you can see which of your friends are playing a game and which game that is, you can voice chat with others whilst in game and chat as well with a little pop up window.

Also...
You get a cool signature with all the hours you've logged on your games, for the e-peen of course.
And who doesn't love e-peen more than us LoL players, Maybe Kanye... who knows

Inb4 no one downloads, get on it!

Well...if you have a different suggestion eko...let's hear it....the thing edd is trying to do is setup communication for LoL players...what program it is doesn't really matter....so he suggested xfire for nostalgic reasons...

Well why not just use something like Steam, Granted it wouldn't have league attached to it but pretty sure most people have a steam account and have it installed already, you can set up groups easily enough on it and contact people etc

There is always the option of using an in-game chatroom.  It has the advantage of being built-in to the client and you can set your client to auto-join so that when you get on LoL you are automatically connected to it.  The downside is that you wither have to be in league to be in the chatroom or you have to go though the hassle of setting up a third-party program (like pidgin) to connect to league chat and the chatroom which is a pain in the ass.

With regards to the other options, xfire is much better imo.  It's fairly lightweight and until recently was still used by the guild.  That said, I am open to using steam for the same purpose, but it does seem a bit overkill to me.

Well If i remember correctly there is still a way to download the classic client which works like the steam in game chat when you **** tab.

Theres other options out there like Raptr, I'm totally open to suggestions, I'd just like to see the branch get a little more organized, there is always mumble which is a great way to find us if you want to play league, but not everyone is on it.

I've got my client to auto the chatrooms "Villanousity" as well as "SoV" but i don't really every see anyone on there.

I think mine is set to auto join "Swords of Villanousity"

if we're going to use that we probably should decide on what to use

Easily done NFF

The official in game chat room for SoV will be "Swords of Villanousity"

So...that's done and out of the way...

As for xfire....if you have it or want to do it that way....go for it...
If you want to get ahold of SoV LoL players through Steam...go for it...

I actually agree that Steam might be a better way to go in that it is very used right now and new recruits will be easily added that way...
At the same time...Steam is also considered malware and lots of people won't install for that reason alone

If you really want to help the LoL branch get on its feet again...then help Edd get it going and just install and use whatever you have to to get some good fun SoV LoL games going

OR just show up on mumble, were always in there playing haha.
But yes, chat rooms, and steam will work.

Steam ID: Someone651

I Want to get some suggestions and see what you guys like, i know theres not a lot of us but as soon as we get organized we can start recruiting people and inviting them into an actual organized LoL branch.
I've got a handful or IRL friends that i can recruit into the guild.

Mumble and steam are = convenient.

You can glance at the forum without logging in to see who is in Mumble and there is no need to send / receive friend requests but theres no harm in using both steam and Mumble as long as people know about both and know to check the forum to see if people are on mumble if steam is empty..........

Something that's pretty nice, is Curse Voice, it's something that I saw advertised on league itself at one point, and it automatically syncs your league friends to it if they have curse voice too.

I was just about to bring this up, i wanted to use it for a while to see how it would work and its freakin amazing!
I automagically makes a room when you enter a game and anyone else with curse running gets put into the room, so you dont even have to add people, even strangers on your team can hear you and talk to you.

Yeah I think it would be the good go-to program for league games.
