Welcome to the VRLI’s Echo Arena section, join the competition in 4v4 matches in a zero g environment of a wild and breathtaking pace. Make your way through all your opponents working alongside your teammates to reach the goal and score! Climb up the VRLI’s leaderboards and join out Hall of Fame!
The VRLI’s rulebook is structured in a way that guarantees an always better game quality and an always more fiery competition, with respect towards all athletes.
VRLI is an Italian organization that engages/deals with E-Sports competitions, all European players that comply with the rules are allowed to participate.
Un giocatore può partecipare solo se il suo ping, come visualizzato sul tabellone segna punti, è costantemente al di sotto del limite: 150.
Se, durante una partita, il ping di un giocatore è continuamente superiore al limite di ping, non è più idoneo a giocare nella partita e deve essere sostituito con un altro giocatore nella squadra del giocatore il cui ping rientra nei limiti accettabili.
Quando la situazione non è chiara, è necessario premere il pulsante “pausa” e un membro dello staff VRLI si unirà alla partita per prendere una decisione. Se le squadre continuano a giocare senza avvisare un membro dello Staff, le condizioni in cui verrà disputata la partita saranno considerate accettate da entrambi i capitani delle squadre ed il risultato sarà considerato valido.
Se un giocatore deve essere sostituito durante una partita a causa di una violazione della regola del limite del Ping, la squadra che necessita di una sostituzione deve utilizzare un timeout (vedi Problemi tecnici e timeout di seguito). Se il timeout passa senza che un giocatore sostituto si sia unito alla partita, il gioco deve riprendere 3v4
VRLI will generate match-ups at the beginning of the season, afterwards the calendar will be made public. Occasionally, significant situations or events outside of the player’s control that may affect both teams’ ability to play in a scheduled match (a patch that renders the game unplayable, for example). In this case, the match may be rescheduled to the following week, pending the approval of a staff member.
Once a match has begun, it must be completed during a single session.
The maximum allowed amount of time between rounds is 5 minutes, that being 4 minutes plus the standard 1 minute break between rounds. If this amount of time is exceeded, one of the two teams is allowed to resume the game and continue playing.
A match must be played for 3 consecutive rounds. Every round won will award the team with 1 point on the leaderboard.
Matches must be played in 4v4.
4v3 may be played only upon failure in finding a league substitute in time for the match.
3v3 may be played only upon failure from both teams in finding a league substitute, in this case, 3v3 is mandatory, both teams must still attempt to find a league substitute.
All teams must begin every round with a minimum of 3 players on their roster.
If a team goes below 3 players during a round, that team may use their timeout, if available, to try getting a player back in the game. If unsuccessful, they must keep playing with one less player. Any player that is part of the round’s roster, may still join back in any moment during said round.
From the moment a match begins to the moment it ends, a team may at no time have 5 players in the arena while the match timer is running.
During a timeout, teams may have 5 players in the arena for up to 30 seconds exclusively for the purpose of a substitution.
If it is necessary for a team to make a substitution while the match timer is running, the teams must wait for the player being replaced to leave the match completely before an invitation is sent out to their replacement.
At the beginning of a match both teams must agree to the match settings and only then will its results be valid. When joining a private arena, the match’s default settings are already mostly correct. In doubt they should be set to what follows:
MINUTES = 10:00
SECONDS = 00:00
BLUE SCORE = 0
ORANGE SCORE = 0
DISC LOCATION = MID
GOAL STOPS TIME = False
RESPAWN TIME = 00:03
CATAPULT TIME = 00:12
ROUND COUNT = 3
ROUNDS PLAYED = ALL
ROUND WAIT TIME = 00:59
CARRY POINTS OVER = False
BLUE ROUNDS WON = 0
ORANGE ROUNDS WON = 0
OVERTIME = ROUND END
STANDARD CHASSIS = TRUE
MERCY ENABLED = True
MERCY SCORE DIFF = 20
TEAM ONLY VOICE = True
DISC CURVE = False
SELF-GOALING = True
GOAL PING ADV = False
No team must voluntarily forfeit any match.
It is forbidden to take any improper action that may affect a match’s results in any way. Improper actions include, but are not limited to: Playing only with headbutts, self goaling without any strategic reasoning, playing without the intent of winning, etc.
Before the beginning of the September 2022 season, qualifiers will be held to determine your MMR(?) and establish the initial positioning of all teams that applied to the competition. After the first season we will proceed as follows
Teams will be split in different divisions relative to their results in previous seasons.
According to the amount of teams in each division, at the end of every season, the highest ranked teams of one division will challenge the lowest ranked teams in the next division over to try and take their place, the winning teams will advance on to the next division, while the losing teams will remain in their current one.
Teams have a time window of 10 minutes from the scheduled starting time of the match to have all their members in the arena and ready to start the game, all teams should do their best to begin their matches at their scheduled starting time.
Once the 10 minute buffer is over, the team responsible for the delay loses the first round.
If 10 more minutes pass and the team is still a no-show they will be declared losers of the match and the opposing team will receive a score of 30-0 (10 points per round).
Teams are responsible of all their technical issues, these include but are not limited to hardware, software and internet related issues.
In case of technical issues :
Players may press the pause button to call for a timeout. A timeout may only be called once per match for each team. Were more issues to arise, players must decide to continue with said issues or give up the round.
The round will continue if the issues aren’t solved within 5 minutes.
If a timeout is called illegally, or the timeout of a team lasts more than is allowed, both teams may resume the game at any time.
If a player has left the match but is again able to join back, they may do so at any time, provided that there are never more than 4 players on one team while the match timer is running.
The restart button should only be used after a round is over, or if the settings of a game as set beforehand are discovered to be incorrect after the game has begun.
If team A calls for a timeout and team B resumes the game before the timeout exceeds its legal time limit, team A may stop the game once more. Illegally resuming a timeout can lead to according punishment.
Una volta trascorso il buffer di 10 minuti, la squadra responsabile del ritardo perde il primo round.
Se trascorrono altri 10 minuti senza l’inizio della partita, la squadra responsabile viene ufficialmente dichiarata “non pervenuta” e verrà assegnato un punteggio di 30-0 (10-0 per round) all’avversario.
Problemi tecnici e timeout
le squadre sono responsabili di tutti i propri problemi tecnici. Ciò include, ma non è limitato a, problemi hardware, software e Internet.
In caso di problemi tecnici:
I giocatori possono premere il pulsante “pausa” per chiamare un timeout. Un timeout può essere richiesto solo una volta per squadra, per partita. Se sorgono ulteriori problemi, i giocatori devono decidere se continuare il round con i propri problemi tecnici, per esempio giocatori che hanno lasciato la partita, o rinunciare al round.
Il round continua se i problemi non vengono risolti entro 5 minuti.
Se una pausa viene chiamata illegalmente, o se la pausa di una squadra dura più a lungo di quanto consentito dalle regole, entrambe le squadre possono riattivare la partita per riprendere il gioco.
Se un giocatore si è ritirato ma è in grado di riprendere la partita, può farlo in qualsiasi momento, purché non ci siano mai più di 4 giocatori nell’arena, per squadra, contemporaneamente, mentre il cronometro di gioco continua.
Il pulsante “riavvia” dovrebbe essere utilizzato solo dopo che una partita è finita, o se le regole della partita, come impostate sul podio, sono risultate errate dopo che la partita è iniziata.
Se la squadra A utilizza un timeout legale e la squadra B riprende la pausa prima che il timeout abbia superato il suo limite di tempo legale, la squadra A può fermarsi di nuovo per riprendere il timeout. Riattivare illegalmente un timeout può portare ad azioni punitive.

Any cheating, exploiting or violation of the rules must be brought to VRLI Staff’s attention who may sanction the rulebreaker with penalties such as: considering a round lost, disqualifying the player of the whole team, etc.
“Cheating” is defined as any intentional or inconsiderate manipulation of the game or its code in a way that grants one side or another an unfair advantage.
“Exploit” is defined as any intentional or inconsiderate activation of the game’s code, attribute or function that is otherwise not considered a legitimate characteristic of the game from Ready At Dawn. Some examples include:
Any action, not considered a legitimate game mechanic, that:
Makes the player move faster than the maximum expected speed
Makes the player get out of the map’s boundaries.
“Violation” is defined as:
Clipping inside of solid objects/floors (utilizing distance scaling or not)
Use of a VPN or any other method of manipulation of one’s own internet connection for the purpose of increasing delay and ping or playing in a region different than the one the player currently resides in. The use of a VPN is otherwise allowed, as long as it doesn’t break the ping limit rule;
Any other fancy trick.
To allow for a pad zone for non intentional movements, a 1,5m x 1,5m physical playing space is allowed. If a player goes over the limits of this space, this can lead to the enforcement of penalties to the player or team who broke the rules.
Any use of the spectator function by the participants during official matches, directly or indirectly, to gain an advantage of any kind is considered cheating.
Any use of external streaming (stream sniping) relative to a match’s content, its circumstances or anything related to it that might give a player or team and unfair advantage is considered cheating.
The use of any object that might favor physical movement (with the exception of the floor, the ground or a mat for a participant’s playspace) is forbidden. These banned objects include but are not limited to trampolines, couches, stairs, beds, etc.
Movement inside the legal boundaries of the playspace set above may allow the players to add real movement speed to virtual reality movement speed for a small and brief increase in velocity, we will call this a “Legal Step”. It is also possible for the avatar of a player to rotate using pitch and or roll so that real movements like squats or sidestepping add momentum towards a specific direction they are moving in (Game Vector), when it their original orientation these movements are used to move towards a different direction, we call this a “Half-Cycle”. Combining a Legal Step with a Half-Cycle is considered an exploit. However, due to the difficulty of determining the difference between a Half-Cycle combined with a Legal Step and a singular Half-Cycle both from video and SPARK files, the Half-Cycle itself is now completely illegal.
The use of API is allowed only if the gathered data is:
Not elaborated in real time, unless used in:
