Black Box VR Arena Raids


First things first… this is our first second month in our first Arena Raid season which firstly means there will be a lot of firsts and for first-timers the first thing they might ask will be what do they need to know first? Well, for first’s sake, here is what you tell them:

High Level

  • Every Black Box VR Season is three months long.
  • Season 8 is from April 1st to June 30th!
  • We break each season into three parts, based on the calendar months.
    • For Season 8:
    • Month 1: April
    • Month 2: May
    • Month 3: June
  • Every month is broken into two major periods:
    • Team Tactical Prep:
    • The ~3 weeks before Arena Raid week.
      • For Season 8, Month 2:
      • May 1st to May 24th
    • Arena Raid Week:
    • Last 7 days of the calendar month.
      • For Season 8, Month 2:
      • May 25th to May 31st
  • That means there are three Arena Raid weeks in Season 8.
    • April 24th to April 30th
    • May 25th to May 31st
    • June 24th to June 30th
  • Every team member will get to do up to three Arena Raid battles during each Arena Week, for a total of nine for the Season. That’s 270 minutes to fight your way to glory!

Now that April is done, we have moved into month two…
