Below are the official rules and prizes from the Virtual Athletics League for the Global Beat Saber Tournament which begins the night of 8/17. Infinite Loop VR is also awarding prizes to the top 3 local players. Anyone 13 years and older can book time during the tournament and compete.
Beat Saber Global Tournament Rules: The Global Tournament will be a rolling high score competition, meaning that an up-to-date high score table will be kept as the tournament progresses. The winner of the tournament will be whoever has the highest score once all the score submissions have been processed. *Participants must be ages 13+ to submit their score to the global rolling high score competition. *The tournament will begin August 17, 2018 at 7 pm. *The tournament will run until August 18, 2018 7 pm. Arcades are allowed to run their local tournaments and submit scores at any time during this 24 hour window. There will be special twitch streams beginning at 7 pm on the 17th and 1 pm on the 18th, arcades are recommended to try to set their hours to participate near these times if they're holding local tournaments. *The game mode will be Expert with No Fail turned on for all players. *Scores will be determined by playing "$100 Bills" and "Escape ft. Summer Haze" and adding the two scores together. The songs must be played back to back; if a player is allowed multiple attempts they must play both songs again and are not allowed to "mix-and-match" scores from different attempts. *In the unlikely event that the high score results in a tie, the player who submitted their score first will win. *Score submissions must include the following to be eligible: The player's name, the arcade's name, the score, and a video recording of the player playing the songs. The video recording can be as simple as cell phone footage, the only requirement is it must clearly show the player playing the game and the final score. *Players will be responsible for recording videos, Infinite Loop VR employees can provide assistance if needed (i.e. you are alone, or you are killing it and ran out of storage on your phone).
Global Tournament Prizes: *The Top 5 Players after all the scores have been processed will each receive $100 in prizes. $100 Bills baby! *In addition to the above, the Top Player after all the scores have been processed will win the Grand Prize: an HTC Vive. *During the live stream VAL will be giving away a HTC Vive courtesy of Tribe XR. They make sweet training software for DJ's all in VR right now and they are an awesome team. https://www.tribexr.com/https://www.twitch.tv/valvr_esports
