Atlas Requirement:

 

At least 1 member of every team MUST have ATLAS installed. The latest public build can be downloaded here: https://echovrconnect.com/

In order to set up Atlas, the player will need to link the application to their EchoVR.exe. This filepath can easily be found and copied by: opening the Oculus desktop client, selecting Library, clicking the 3 dots under the Echo VR application, selecting Details, hovering over the location bar and right clicking on it to "copy to clipboard".

The default file path is: C:\Program Files\Oculus\Software\Software\ready-at-dawn-echo-arena\bin\win7

There is an Atlas workaround for Quest users - please reach out to an Echo Admin if you have any questions.

Tournament Ruleset:

The CVRE Echo Arena tournament is a university-based team competition, played on the Echo VR app located in the Oculus Store for Rift/Quest.

  1. ​​Teams consist of 4 active members and up to 2 alternates.

  2. Only 4 players per team can be in the arena while the match is ongoing. If someone is subbing in, one player on the team must leave the game before another member can join the lobby.

  3. Each team is allowed one 3-minute timeout per half. In order to call a timeout, you must hit the PAUSE button on the in-game terminal.

  4. Before the match start/resumes, both captains must verify that the in-game rules match the following:

    • Minutes: 15

    • Round Count: 2

    • Rounds Played: All

    • Carry Points Over: True

    • Overtime: Match End

    • Mercy Enabled: True

    • Mercy Score Difference: 21

  5. During streamed matches there is a mandatory 3 minute halftime - however teams may extend this by up to 5 minutes if needed. In order to apply the halftime, a player must hit the PAUSE button on the terminal.

Match Organization:

  1. Team captains are required to get in touch with the opposing captain to select a date and time that fits within the allotted time slots: Wednesdays/Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays between 5pm - 10pm CST.

  2. MAKE SURE TO REPORT YOUR SELECTED MATCH TIME TO AN ECHO ADMIN: Soriya#1111 or Mizuchi#0910

  3. You may schedule a match any day of the week but only those within the streamable timeslot will appear on Twitch.

  4. Refer to the website calendar to see if the match time you picked is not already taken. If a streamed timeslot is already booked and that is the only time your team can play, you may still play in that timeslot but your match will not be streamed.

 

The Season 6 Single-Day Seeding Tournament date will be announced once registration closes on 2/17.
