HELLO VREV!!! It's SPRING BREAK!!!!
It's time to dust off those computers and give them a break from all that "work" they have been doing. It's time for some gaming! I look forward to seeing everyone drop by in teamspeak or in game this spreak break. Reconnect with old gaming buddies and lets have some fun!
New events for the spring will be in development soon for both PS2 and Swtor divisions. Check back often for new updates and information.

Because of the recent trolling experienced my the community, and recent revelations that this issue may go deeper than simply the Planetside2 division, it is important to know what to do in the event that you find yourself "out in the cold" with no idea why...
I re-affirm my earlier statements that we do not boot people without informing them.
"But how will I know if I am informed?" Good question!
The senior officer of your community will come and have a little chat with you, privately, or in a small group if several people are involved. This may lead to one of a few results: 1)Nothing - issue or concern is resolved and we all go about our merry way; 2)Time out - sometimes we all need a break, this will not likely be a community wide ban, and isn't usually done without the division lead consulting with other members of the council; 3)Ban - if the conduct is found grevious enough and the members concerned show no interest in coming to an alternative resolution the council will deliberate on whether an all out ban is required. This is not a decision we make lightly and there are only a few cases in our history where this was necessitated because of blatantly malicious and destructive behavior.
"What If I was banned and I don't know why?" Another good question!
We actually have decent memories as members of the council and since we are always talking with each other all of us are generally aware of who has been banned and for what reasons. You first avenue of approach is talking to your division lead. If you cannot contact them because you find that you are unable to through the game or your teamspeak privileges have been removed, contact one of the administrators through the outfit website, if that too eludes you, try facebook, or the public forums. People do check this daily, and we will try to get you sorted as soon as possible.
In the event that you have been banned falsely we will do everything in our power to determine why. We consult with division leads, and the other people who have the power to make these action. For the next little while we will be dealing with the fallout of our PS2 trolling, but in the future this should be a rare technical error. But if it does happen maliciously we need to know, because that sort of behavior from our leaders WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. As a community we expect and encourage our members to approach us with these concerns and issues, and to call us out when things are not working as they are supposed to.
"What if I was banned and I don't feel it is a good reason?" Yet another fine question.
We generally take a pretty open stance to people approaching us for discussion. Sometimes a new approach to a problem can help resolve something. In the event that you do not feel the reason for being removed from the community is correct, or that it warranted such an action, and you still wish to be a part of the community, or simply want to discuss it, you can contact myself or one of the officers to arrange a meeting. I consistently check my PM's so you can always leave me one.
If you have any further question about this issue or this process please get in touch with me and I will do my best to help. I
There has recently been an unfortunate set of actions by members of our Planetside 2 officers, who have since been removed from the community. We are working to remedy the consequences of these actions but require community help. If you require an re-invitation to the Planetside 2 outfit, or know of someone who does please get in touch with any of the officers you find online or create a forum post with the request.
I wish to emphasize VREV IS a community. WE DO NOT NOR WILL WE EVER NINJA BOOT. If there is ever a reason for us to remove someone from the outfit we do so only after lenghthy consultation with the member concerned.
If you have any concerns or comments about this issue please do not hesitate to PM me or any of the ranking VREV officers.
It is with deep regret that we have had to suffer the malicious acts of disgruntled players, and I apologize on behalf of the officers for any distress or inconvenience this has caused the members of our community.
At this time I would also like to point out the support network we have in place. If you ever have any concerns, questions, or comments your officers and community leaders are here to offer friendship, guidance, leadership, and professionalism. And if they don't...I'll personally have their hides! ;)
