bearodactylNot gonna lie, the fact that RGL starts so early is absolutely abysmal planning on their part. No idea how invite teams are going to actually get their rosters figured out as it's right after grand finals and there won't even be time to try people out.
This is a really important point; multiple playoff Open/IM/Invite teams are gonna get fucked when they have 0 time to do tryouts for people shuffling in and out of teams. I understand a short off season is a side effect of not wanting a fall season to run through the winter holidays, but how does anyone honestly expect a 1 day off season to work when for years ESEA has usually given us more and we still pray for a fucking extension.
Regardless of which league ends up being "better", RGL is flat out not going to be an option for a lot of teams, even if they wanted it to be. The creation of this league is by no means "too late" in my eyes.
