We’re Back! (again)

Hey everyone.

Unfortunately, we had to revert our website to a backup from Monday, Dec 6th.

This is why my original return-post is gone and why some of you may not see your account anymore. Those who created an account in the past four days will have to create it again, and I apologize for that inconvenience.

And now, to reiterate what I said in my previous post, everyone at VSME is excited to have our events back up and running again after a two-year hiatus. We are back on the horse to deliver on what we started back in 2018.

Season Six and Fighter Profiles

You will notice our official leaderboard has a “season score” column. These are the points you collect for participating in our events each season. You will earn points, win or lose, just for participating. But we give more points for defeating larger, more skilled opponents, and for winning by submission. If you beat someone lower level, or smaller sized, you get slightly fewer points. All in the name of fairness in a competitive setting. Neat! Your number of victories, submissions and VS Rating will never reset.

You will also notice that our fighter profiles are now active and ready for you to update. Once you create your account, you can log in and update it with your pictures, bio, social media handles and videos. We are constantly working to make them better, so if you have any issues or feedback, feel free to send us an email, and we will lend a hand. These profiles are something we are all very proud of.

Your VS Rating is a score from 0 to 100 that tells you where you stand in comparison to all VSME athletes in our database, including all ranks and genders – only a few make it past 80.

Our VS Meter charts are what makes Versus Me, Versus Me. We believe in helping athletes become better versions of themselves, and the best way to do that is to provide them with charts that allow them to see what part of their game is strong and what part of their game is lacking – using data. All you need to do is roll at our events and watch your chart update in real-time between matches.

About Our Plans for This Year

I was delightfully surprised to see many of you ask about expansion to other cities, volunteer your schools, and share your excitement to compete at our events. Thank you so much for that. So for that reason, I thought I’d address some of our plans to answer some of these frequent questions.

We are using Season Six to perfect our new policies, protocols, and formats before we expand.

We will bring VSME outside of the GTA after Season Six, especially with the schools that have reached out inquiring about collaborating. For those wondering, our partnerships with schools have changed (for the better), which makes us more particular about who we decide to work with. If you are interested in becoming a VSME affiliate school, reach out to us to share further details. We share profits and mutually benefit in many ways.

If you are a business that wants to work with us and think our audience will find value in your products/services – definitely reach out! VSME is all about community and supporting other small businesses like ourselves.

Lastly, You may notice that our first event is a referee training event. We only have eight spots available! So if you want to get some points for season six, take advantage of this event. It’s only $10 to register, and it’s nogi only. But please note – this will not be your regular VSME event. We will focus on referee training and score your matches as part of the training, but you will not get the full experience, so please don’t register with those expectations. If the tickets are still available for sale, it means we still have spots available.

If you would like to work with us as a referee, event manager, or door support, reach out to us at info@vsmeinc.com! All paid.

I believe I covered everything from the post that was deleted. Once again, on behalf of everyone involved in making VSME happen, thank you for welcoming us back, and we look forward to watching you up your game at our events!

Sincerely,

Carlos.
