On July 29th at 8:30am PT, we're going to be deploying a patch with updates to Echo Arena (likely early in the morning, Pacific time). Please note that there are no changes to Lone Echo in this patch.
The expected server downtime to deploy the patch and backend updates is 8:30am - 9:15am PT. During this time you will not be able to log in to Echo Arena. Please check Twitter or join the community Discord server for latest updates (linked below).
If you haven't already, check out the community Discord server where you can chat with other community members in real-time about these changes: https://discord.gg/bPB7v8d. We look forward to your thoughts about this latest update and can't wait to run into you in the Arena!

In order to launch Echo Arena from the Lone Echo app, players will need to add the stand-alone Echo Arena app to their Oculus Library. Once that's done, this will "entitle" your account and you can then boot Echo Arena from the Lone Echo main menu. You do not need to install the stand-alone Echo Arena app.
Leaderboards appear blank -- this is intentional as we have currently disabled leaderboards while they’re reworked.
Muting via Arm Computer can behave oddly; sometimes it shows a player is muted when they’re not, or selecting to unmute a player may take a few attempts to succeed.
Sometimes the gates to the launch tubes are closed when entering a match. They usually reset after a team scores, at which point you can go through them and join your teammates.
AMD users are having performance issues on older drivers. Please make sure you update your drivers as this should resolve the issue.
