VENUES IS BACK!
by Giligin |

VR Master League is announcing its return to Oculus Venues!



The Echo Arena VRML has grown into something that transcends any single effort. It has taken a community full of dedicated, passionate, talented individuals to take the esport to the heights it has reached, and it continues to evolve and grow. Coming into 2021, we set several goals for VRML. One of those goals was to return to Oculus Venues. 


Venues Returns!

Over the course of Season 2 we saw Venues broadcasts every weekend. They were a great space to enjoy watching the games with your friends on your Oculus Quest and quickly became a popular avenue for people to enjoy watching Echo Arena VRML. We are therefore proud to announce: Echo Arena is returning to Venues with almost triple the amount of Venues broadcasts!


If you’ve never seen Echo Arena VRML in Venues before, with it's theater-sized virtual screen and real-time social interaction with other fans, it’s an enriching way to experience the games. To join, you can download the Venues beta directly from the Oculus app store. Once you're in, you can sign up to be notified of upcoming events and receive alerts in your headset when they go live!


More Content!

As mentioned earlier, we are always trying to take VR Esports to the next level. Another one of our goals for 2021 is to expand on the content offerings of VRML. As a community-run league, we thrive on community participation. The result has been the addition of the Creator team to Echo Arena VRML. Already, they have been delivering high-quality highlight reels, team interviews, and game recaps that are posted on the Echo Arena VRML YouTube channel.

The best way to show your support is to like and share these videos with friends and family on social media to help us expand the reach of VRML. In addition, you can head on over to the VRML Instagram account where clips from all games are posted, and the Echo Arena Twitter account to get notified of any live games!

Lastly, you may have seen media applications go out recently. In line with our goal to expand our content offerings, we will be looking to also post articles on both the VRML home page and the Echo Arena home page. We will be sure to notify the community when articles are posted, so following the Twitter account and joining the Discord will guarantee you don't miss any content. 


These are just a few of the things we have planned for 2021 for VRML and we look forward to continuing to take VRML to new heights!


Creators Team Creates Content
by Giligin |

With the recent expansion of the casting and production team, a new branch of community participants was created. The Creators Team is a group of motivated individuals who coordinate with each other and other players to gather clips, interviews, and other raw material to create content for Echo Arena Master League's YouTube channel. These videos are also sometimes played during casts, serving to enrich the audience's experience. These four videos are just the first. We look forward to seeing what else they can produce!
