The Virtual Arena is proud to feature the new 2012 Season. Consisting of larger tournaments, stat tracking, new leaderboards, new prizes, and new gamers, this Season is going to be huge. If you don’t have enough teammates, or a ride to Columbia, sign up anyway and we will help you find other gamers who are attending from other areas around Missouri. Or you can attempt to find others on our Facebook Page
In addition to big tournaments revolving around major game releases, the Virtual Arena is dedicated to providing an exciting location for spontaneous LAN matches with as many participants as possible. Playing in 4 vs 4, 8 vs 8, or even 12 vs12 matches is possible online, but nothing beats the excitement of “this half the room versus the other half!” Our busy weekends are full of opportunities to create system-link or private-matches, provided everyone else happens to be playing the same game you want to play. But what do you do if you come to the Arena hoping to get into a Halo Reach LAN game, but everyone is playing Call of Duty? Or vice versa? We also offer special discounts, like the buddy pass, that encourage friends to bring their friends, but what if you come by yourself? To answer these questions, the Virtual Arena is proud to introduce GAME NIGHTS! Coming soon, we will set a schedule for certain games to be played on certain week-day nights. From 5pm to 10pm, if you play the dedicated game of the evening with everyone else, you will only have to pay $2 an hour! Based on attendance, the Arena might even encourage some fun competition with prizes like free game time or gift cards! Good luck!
GAME NIGHT SCHEDULE
Coming Soon! Tentative games featured will be Call of Duty: Black Ops and Halo Reach, with additional nights available by request!
