    Summary

    • A third season accessible to eSport VR beginners
    • VRML Echo VR season 3: date and 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 VR eSports also continues to grow, and competitive games are attracting more and more people. Recently, a large number of users have 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 containment. Against this background, the announcement of the third season of the VR Master League Echo Arena takes a whole different scale than the previous two.

    A third season accessible to eSport VR beginners

    This year the league will adopt a new format for promotion and relegation. The players of the “Master Division” will compete against each other in a group match format, while the lower divisions will be decided via a “Ladder” type ranking system.

    Multiple cycles will follow one another, each time ending with a ”Challenger Cup“. Through this cup, the two worst teams of the Master Division will face the four best teams of 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 manner.

    This third season will take place January 4, 2021 and will run until May 2. The grand finals will take place on May 8 and 9 and May 14 and 15, 2021.



    We do not yet know what the “cash prize” will be offered to the winners of the competition. In the previous season, the winners of the Echo Arena tournament were able to win $ 3545 reward, including $ 1400 in cash and the rest in sponsored products.
