Thanks everyone for an exciting and competitive Season 8 !

There are quite a few changes which will make for stimulating challenges and new opportunities for all players and teams.

We'd like to hear your thoughts on Season 8, what changes you would like to see for Season 9, and any other feedback you would like to share with the moderation team (including but not limited to, 'how soon should Season 9 start?')

We've created a convenient survey here:

Our goal is to improve the league and address our community's evolving needs and desires. Please take the time to fill out the survey so that your voice can be heard and we can work together to make Season 9 the best one yet!

Now that season 8 is all wrapped up, we invite you to turn your attention to all the advancements made in the Pavlov VR Beta branch.

-New skins with 1 drawcall to help performance

-New asynchronous loading system to help performance

-New industry map

-SND utility buy limits

-Added jiggle prevention to rapid strafe movement

-Various weapon tweaks with both interaction and balance (may need to view patch notes from betas to understand them all)

-Bomb explosion effects

-Grenade explosion effects

-PavTV now back online (still has a few kinks to iron out)

-Added bomb kill feed icon for SND

-Added new bullet decals for player bullet hits

-Added new server browser filters for TTT and OITC

-Added ability to attach laser to m9, de, and revolver

-Added ability to attach laser/flashlight to p90 and pump shotgun

Dream Homepage Contest Begins NOW!
by Giligin |


We are always looking to expand and improve upon our existing architecture and tools based on your feedback. One of the areas we know we could improve is the user-facing interface of the website! While the function of the site is intact, we also recognize that visually, it could be improved. While our focus right now is on performance and stability, we're looking for ideas to make the front-end better.

That is where YOU come in. We would like to announce the VRML Dream Homepage contest! 

We want to tap into the vast resource of our various VRML communities and see if any existing (or aspiring) UI designers would like to take a crack at revitalizing the landing page of the VRML to fit with their vision of what the next iteration of the site should look like! The winner (chosen by the VRML Board), in addition to having the honor of all or part of their design implemented directly to our site, will receive $250, a Discord role, bragging rights, and their name will be credited on the website, news posts, and casts! 

How to participate?

Front-end designers will know best how to approach this. Each submission can include 2 different packages:

 1) Sketches (can be hand-drawn) of the various pages (can be Home page, Standings pages, Matches pages, etc)

 2) A stand-alone css file (stylesheet) to apply on the website to change its look without requiring functionality overhaul changes.


The pages MUST include all existing elements/functionalities in some form or fashion but the style is entirely up to you!


Designs must be submitted by midnight PST on September 30th to:

[email protected]

Good luck!

*Disclaimer - By participating and submitting your ideas or designs as part of this contest, you grant VR Master League a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty free, license to use, reproduce, modify, translate into different languages or formats, and publish your provided content.
