As autumn fades into winter, there’s no reason for Echo VR fans to get the blues as cold weather approaches because there are an abundance of opportunities scheduled for the next several weeks, including the launch of VR Master League Echo Arena pre-season on November 4.
Earlier this month, VR Fitness Insider announced that Ready At Dawn’s popular zero-gravity game Echo Arena had joined the VR Master League, a community-driven platform designed from the ground up for VR esports competition.
Echo VR is an active community in the VR ecosystem. When the game launched in July 2017, developers actively engaged with players, helping them learn the basics of the game, encouraging them to participate in events, and listening to their feedback about game mechanics, etc. In this positive atmosphere, community leaders also began to find opportunities to welcome new players, establish community tournaments, and enhance growth. Many of the activities you’ll find in the following schedule are a result of continued efforts by Echo VR community members.
Monday, October 28 – Recruiting Day
VRML tournament organizers want to ensure that players have the information they need. The Echo Games Discord is a hub for training and events so all players are invited to join!
Tuesday, October 29 – Pick Up Night
Held each Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. EDT / 19:00 CET, Pick Up Nights are a great way to test your skills, meet other people, and ask questions.
