Survey

First and foremost, our survey has had a great response so far, but we want to make sure that all voices are heard. If you are a North American Sixes player or someone who’s interested in trying North American Sixes, please take a few minutes to take the survey.

http://sixes.rgl.gg/Players/My/Survey.aspx?s=5

We will close the survey this Friday (the 21st.) We will make an announcement with the results and changes to the first season shortly after.

Registration

Registration is still open. After a week we’ve had over 65 teams started and looking like six-seven prospective Invite teams so far. Don’t forget that our early bird registration deal ends tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11pm Eastern. You can save 20% on your personal or team registration.

New Head Admin

The reason for this announcement though is to inform everyone of some staff changes for our first season. Yari Qwerty was out of the country for funerals and other family related things. Yari and I talked on the weekend he was coming back to America and he came to the conclusion that he needed to step down. He realized he was not in a good place mentally to take on running a league, after everything that has happened. Self-care comes first and we at RGL all sending him some positive thoughts his way.

With that, we needed to find a new head admin to take over. One concern that people had was over the experience level of Yari and while we had the utmost confidence in Yari. Because we firmly believe that good admining comes from someone’s personality and passion, not their ability to hit meatshots. However, we decided to hear players concerns and aim to get a player who’s been around for a while, passionate about sixes and plays in Invite. The player we’ve decided to go with has been playing in ESEA for over 10 seasons, with the last season being his fourth inside Invite. He’s been involved in RGL leagues as a player since the beginning and is very passionate about the sixes format: Daffodil.

New Admin

We’ve also expanded our admin team by one, and we’ve added Pablo, the medic from the Invite team Dunk Masters, and we are looking forward to what he can bring to the admin team.

RGL Production Team

Finally, though our admin staff appears to be set for the first season, we are continuing to look to expand our production team. We are looking for current or former players to help bring some experience to the RGL sixes production team.

The first additions to our team are Marmaloo, Shamoo and Sandblast who will help with casting some matches when they are not busy with their own. If you’re interested in helping out please contact @sigafoo#0685 through discord or steam.

The invite anti poaching rule could be reinstated after communicating with invite leaders in the offseason prior to s3 about the rule to see if it would be needed

the man whose 6s ideas accrued 40 downvotes in the NATF2 thread is now head admin, and somehow I am not at all surprised.

You should really partner up with the TF.TV production people for the casting side of things. If you want the finals casted on the RGL channel (or whenever it is that you need to get the biggest view volume, you said) I'm sure they can do that for you as well. It's just a shame and a waste to not utilize the experienced, awesome people that our scene produced over the years.

We reached out to the tftv production head right now, louster200, about a week ago, to let him know we'd be happy to do some sort of merge or figure something to work together in general. Beyond the initial conversation, we've heard nothing back from them.

For the Grand Finals itself, it's certainly a possibility to potentially have a tftv person join our talent for the night. Obviously, we do not have that stuff set in stone right now. We generally just look at who's been the most consistent and strongest throughout the season for casting and if there's a pair that's been working well together.

i've pointed this out in another thread, but just my 2 cents, requiring people to register on the site in order to take the survey might lead to a lower response rate than you expect (if that is what is happening, obviously i don't know how many responses you have). if you're looking for responses from people you have not already onboarded, forced registration could turn people away.

do you think sigafoo wants any input outside of his echo chamber?

The registration for rgl is really just signing in through steam, it's not a super complicated registration process. Additionally, if you end up playing in the league you will need to register regardless. There shouldn't be an excuse to not make your voice heard! Instead of complaining about 'sigafoo's echo chamber' (air) you should be convincing more esea players to take the survey.
