Newbie Mixes announces Season 5 Team Drive

December 23, 2020

Long a pillar of the North American Scene, NA Newbie Mixes are announcing their seasonal team drive. Players new to 6s can sign up to be paired with teammates, and an experienced coach to guide them through RGL Season 5.

Season 3's drive saw 14 teams enter, and 13 survive, with 10 making playoffs in their division, and many of the teams stuck together in Season 4 to continue their adventure.

Experienced players have their place in this formula too, here's how you can help with the drive:

  • Spread the word! If you know someone who might want to get into the game, or who might want to coach a team, tell them how they can get involved.
  • Sign up for the drive as a coach. Coaching is a 9-10 week commitment, where you're for your team to help them set up, schedule, and learn the game. You can expect to do one map review at the start of the week, and a demo review at the end, as well as being generally available to answer questions for your players. RGL will refund the league fees of coaches who also plan to play the season.
  • Coach Friday Night mixes. If you can't dedicate to coaching the season, you can still help out by coaching the group's regular mixes. These run as players join from 9pm EST to midnight on Fridays. A record of 8-8 in ESEA-O or RGL-IM playoffs is required.

Details for how to sign up are on the Newbie Mixes Steam group announcement. Registration will be open until January 7th. Anyone interested in signing up or helping out should check these links.

So many great players have come from the team drive and I'm very happy to be continuing the drive this season. I myself will be coaching and hopefully some of you consider doing so too.

I'd also like to give my congrats to RGL on Ice, a newbie mix drive team that secured the win in grand finals for RGL Newcomer division. And a congrats to every team that got through the season, especially those that made playoffs.

If I have a server, how do I sponsor a team with it? Is there a form I need to fill out?

If you are a good player that wants to help the scene while building up teaching skills, it's really fun to coach. I followed my team from being brand new to RGL two seasons ago through this past season in IM.

Lmk if you are a good player that wants to coach but just aren't as comfortable with the teach-y part. More than happy to help

Last time I did this, I got replaced by a sub 4 weeks into season 3 of RGL and left the team as soon as I heard I was being replaced. I wanted to have fun, not to be considered a fucking disgrace in front of a team who I will consider to be peasants at this time, because infidel and heretic is not the right terms to use. So if you are a serious competitive player and can survive toxicity and are actually decent at the game, this place is a good place to start, but if you’re like me, who wanted to have fun as demoman and barely did anything that good because he relied more on pipes than stickies, then this place is not for you at all.

If this helped you understand what I’ve been through, why I uninstalled tf2 and the fact that I did NOT play season 4 at all because of bullshit like this, or helped you understand what you can expect from this group, then let me know! I’m always here to be of assistance or to make people happy.
If you were part of the team known as playermovement back in season 3 of RGL 6v6, then let’s just say you were all the last straw in trying to keep me in the competitive scene, and you all ruined it. Fuck you, and suck my dick.
Pleasure meeting everyone who participates this season! Well... as I said I uninstalled tf2 due to 4 years of playing first person shooters with literally nothing positive going my favor. Good luck everyone!

cre-8 man u obviously havent had the best time in tf2 but i think ur directing ur anger at the wrong people. newbie.tf do great work in the scene. its a shame your time with their team drive didnt work out.

if u really wanna try to play comp tf2 i'd suggest the first thing u do is get a proper setup/pc, then work on fixing ur mentality which will be easier once u can actually play the game on good fps unhindered. the amount of times ive seen u say ur uninstalling/quitting man...

wish u all the best and happy boxing day <3

cre-8 that is the most toxic post i've ever read

maybe you getting cut had something to do with insisting on using pipes or whatever tf, but after reading that it seems more likely that they didn't want to play with an egomaniac

I played pocket soldier on the PlayerMovement team in RGL S3 of Newcomer it was a great team filled with people with who I play TF2 with 'till this day even after that season. That being said cre-8 my man I've seen you post here on more than one occasion on the forums to complain about "toxicity" that was never present on the team but not only do you speak about non-existent toxicity you also blame us for your departure of TF2. I'd say that we were never toxic to you. We were fine with your presence on our team as we had no issues with you personally, it really was only your performance in-game.

We understood that you weren't the next Habib or Bdonski so we tried to help you in fact I, who was a previous demo main, offered some help to you but you never took up on my offer. I even vividly remember you saying on a discord call that you don't practice at all outside of matches/scrims.

All in all, it's in the past now so I'm hoping we can drop this. I wish you well in whatever you do in the future.

KevinIsPwncre-8 that is the most toxic post i've ever read

i have been called toxic, i have been called shit, and ive also been banned permanently from prolander pugs that werent even run by RGL on a discord server because of my attitude when it came to certain topics, and i also have been called things that are true and said true things gave me a small amount of paranoia from the police. i even got dossed several times and also used my own voice to describe where my irl location was and all that whenever i was extremely angry at someone, but calling me an egomaniac? thats a first. and judging by the post you made, i guess you dont even know who i am. so let me explain myself.

i am cre-8, AKA little *INCREASE BASS NOISE*, AKA autism incarnate, AKA awezombie13, AKA the mental bandit, former tf2/csgo/valorant player for no teams whatsoever within a full season, former card game maker, and current rpg video game maker using the rpg maker xp engine.

i have been a competitive noob in team fortress 2 and every other game that's a first person shooter for almost half a decade, i am the greatest personality on the mic, and have the likes of marxist on my steam friends list at one point. i'm the purest form of a game related actor you have or have not seen. i know JWB as a friend, geel defended my ass against stephanie when stephanie ranted about how annoying i was in the first place, in which she is not wrong.

all my life i wanted to make people entertained, happy, and proud of what i do or have done. and people like yourself are the reason i have a major depressive situation on a daily basis since the 6th grade. i have graduated high school as of currently, and i don't intend on stopping my inevitable reign of excitement any time soon. now i do NOT want to start any fights with anyone, because people know how violent i can sound but how weak i actually am. so please, for everyone's sake, don't start a fight with me.

i understand that, i know there was no toxicity between us. i dont even remember mentioning team toxicity, just about me getting replaced. you all are great people NGL. it just pissed me off when i got replaced and i was too immature even at the age of 18 to think through since my brain is basically mentally broken

on a side note u turning criticism into people being the cause of ur depression shows why he called u an egomaniac, and is actually quite abusive if done intentionally (not that doing it unintentionally makes the action itself any less bad). u need to learn to take responsibility for ur own actions and take criticism to both ur in-game play and ur character if u want to grow. i want u to be happy man but u cant be telling people theyre the cause of ur depression when they criticise u that 1) wont help u grow and 2) is not fair on them at all. as i said kevins response was pretty fair given that u just went after the project he works hard on (on voluntary basis) just because u had a bad experience in it previously (which i doubt was his or the project's fault really).

edit: if people criticising u for fair things like this is the cause of ur depression then that is ur fault not theres. thats what i meant by taking responsibility.

Well... that happened. My sincere apologies to Kevin for my comments related to connecting him and his comments to my depression and violent anger. That was not my intention when it came that far into the argument. It’s actually hard thinking about what to say as an apology in the first place, considering I lost irl friends because of things like this. Therefore, I shall take my leave from this thread, and hope that the teams in the team drive have a successful season
