In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.Written by

People would not be oriented the same inside the OASIS as they are in the real world. This problem was evident throughout the movie, and at its worst, was during the final battle on Planet Doom. Even if you could argue that the 6-ers were to start out in some sort of strict formation in the war room as well as in the OASIS (unlikely), the further the battle rages, the more shuffled they would be with 6-er avatars 'zeroing-out', others filling any available spot in the war room, and making the MechaGodzilla shaped red mark in the war room impossible, and the cataclyst zeroing-out the whole war room in a wave pattern the grand finale of this specific blunder.
