The third season of the VRML league for the Echo Arena game has just been announced. Find out everything you need to know about this virtual reality eSport competition: date, format, cash prize…
In a few years, virtual reality has gained momentum. Many VR headsets have been sold, and new players have joined the community.
The field of eSport VR also continues to grow, and competitive games are increasingly attractive. Recently, a large number of users discovered the Echo Arena game following its launch on Oculus Quest.
At the same time, in the real world, many competitive sports are banned due to COVID-19 and lockdowns. In this context, the announcement of the third season of the VR Master League Echo Arena takes a completely different scale than the two previous ones.
A third season accessible to eSport VR beginners
This year, the league will adopt a new promotion and relegation format. Players from the ‘Master Division’ will compete in a pool match format, while the lower divisions will be decided via a ‘Ladder’ type ranking system.
Multiple cycles will follow one another, ending each time with a “Challenger Cup” . Through this cup, the two worst teams in the Master Division will face the top four teams in the Diamond Division. The winners will be promoted to the Master Division for the next cycle, the losers relegated.
As in previous VRML seasons, matches will be broadcast live on Twitch and Oculus Venues. Spectators will therefore be able to watch the competition together in a friendly way.
