The World Virtual Games will highlight the best of Metaverse Sport.

And for a while yet, that best will be Racket:Next.

There will be four types of Racket:Next tournaments:

1. SOLO, which posts scores/times to a Leaderboard, by which winners are determined.

2. MULTI-SIDE 1v1, which pits two players against each other.

3. HYBRID, which has a SOLO preliminary phase and a 1v1 Finals Round.

4. CO-OP, which pits two players ON THE SAME SIDE against other “doubles” teams against the Leaderboard.

The World Virtual Games Series is a HYBRID tournament, with two phases See image below.

See also below for a brief  Rules Summary. Please note that competition requires the use of the Quest Stationary Guardian Zone or equivalent. This is to establish a “level playing field” for everyone. This rule will originally be on the Honor System and will eventually be monitored by phone video.

Also note that network anomalies that produce lag or other interference are to be considered the equivalent of “weather” in a conventional outdoor sport. The question of play suspension is in the hands of the Tournament Judge.

We encourage recording and streaming of your competition. You will find instructions for both HERE.

On this point, we urge you to play hard and follow-through on every point. We must build a fan base, and to do so play must LOOK exciting.

EVERYONE who registers as a Sanctioned Player, with a SEASON PASS subscription [US$10], IN THE FIRST YEAR [before May 15, 2023], will earn a place in our Founder’s Hall. And superior performers will earn a spot in our Hall of Fame.

Because this whole effort is about performance and PARTICIPATION.

We already ARE the biggest sport in the Metaverse, because we are the ONLY REAL SPORT in the Metaverse.

But we want to be and stay for the Metaverse what world football [soccer] is for conventional sport.

So… it is no surprise that we are being FEATURED at The World Games [second only to the Olympics] in Birmingham, Alabama, in July 2022.

We are, after all, the ONLY VR GAME that has been officially declared a REAL SPORT!

AND we have been invited to apply for the OLYMPIC VIRTUAL SERIES, the OLYMPICS OF VIRTUAL SPORT!
