#25 can we get paid our prize money please in TF2 General Discussion
striderdave2My understanding of the situation is that there is work being done on new payment system on the site, and the payments are delayed because of that. I'm not sure that there is an ETA on when that would be done.
not sure why a new payment system on the site is necessary to distribute money to team leaders using paypal

Also just a little info on this, it has to do with how paypal interacts with mandatory tax reporting to the IRS.

https://newsroom.paypal-corp.com/2021-11-04-New-US-Tax-Reporting-Requirements-Your-Questions-Answered

Paypal went from required reporting of 20k+ to $600 dollars. So if we send the money to a leader, the leader will have a 1099-K of the winnings, whereas before it was manual reporting process. Keep in mind that while people won't get $600 for just one season, it's very possible for team leaders to get $600 over one year.

#21 can we get paid our prize money please in TF2 General Discussion
striderthe lack of transparency in rgl's financials as well as a lack of accountability among its leadership is pretty concerning. where is the prize money? who handles and has access to it? also at a higher level, how is the money being spent regarding operational costs/reinvestment into the league itself, and who gets to decide how much to spend and what to spend it on? the community deserves some answers from the league

Sigafoo handles everything with prize money. We collect paypals, and he sends out payouts. Dave2 already linked the post detailing everything in regards to how much is collected, and where it all goes. The decisions are largely made by the HAs and Sigafoo himself, but as you can see only $300 goes towards site costs and less than $200 goes towards newbie mixes. The other part that doesn't get returned directly to the players via payouts goes to paypal's transactional fees. I really recommend reading the article if you haven't already, as it is incredibly thorough as to where the money goes.

Charis messaged me a few times regarding payouts, and if I recall correctly (I don't have the dms so I might be misremembering), but part of the reason there was a delay with your team was because we were having issues with the original paypal account your team provided. When we did get a paypal, I forwarded it to exa/sigafoo, however by then we were reramping the payout system.

I do agree transparency hasn't been the strongest with this particular instance, however I do think overall finances are rather transparent. We can likely try to release more indepth financial reports for the next few seasons, however those do take time to write up.

As for accountability among leadership, any more specifics/insight you could provide would be much appreciated. We're not perfect, and working as a group of volunteers often does mean things slip through the cracks, however we know this and are always looking to improve.

#36 RGL Invite Admin vs Perfection? in Off Topic

1. fair enough
2. fair enough

me and perfection knew we were fucking with each other is another bit of context i think went unrecognized, none of it was serious. like we're on good terms and shit, and agree it was just banter. it was all in good fun, i really don't get the need for this thread with all that in mind.

#33 RGL Invite Admin vs Perfection? in Off Topic

wanna be really clear that i only said the don't be sexist shit because after channels were delinked, someone messaged me saying perfection was saying "really heinous shit", which i interpretted as he was being sexist. I am all for shit talk (obv), and apparently he just called me fat and ugly (which is fine, not bannable or anything), but i thought he was saying sexist shit which is crossing a line. i also ended it in the first place because people in the mumble were complaining about the pug starting, so i wanted to let things end for them to start. idk if the video shows it but in between me shit talking him he literally shit talks me back, says i'm bad and got carried to invite and that no one likes me and stuff. the real situation isn't just me railing on him, we were going back and forth.

i really don't get why i'm in the wrong here, we were shit talking eachother, i brought up shit about my life cause perfections a neet. He spends all night shit talking others, why is it when i do it i get a video made about me? is it because i had emotion in my voice? it's literally just shit talk.

Nothing i did here has anything to do with me being an rgl admin. Anything with perfection in the future I will sit out of discussions to avoid bias. I was pugging on my own time away from rgl, I think i'm allowed to shit talk if others are shit talking as well.

#29 Announcing RGL 6s - Season 8 (+ Invite Quals) in TF2 General Discussion
CAP_CREATUREEvery season there is always some list of the existing teams that I ask some guy who knows a guy who gives me the list and by the end of the pre-season everyone has the list anyways can we just have that list posted when its made because it helps us make scrims with people and it helps lft people find tryouts.

Added to the OP, spreadsheet is a work in progress but you can check that for what I have. I'll start linking rgl/steam pages and schedulers in the next day or two (hopefully).

As to the map discussion, I wanna establish two things:

First, in regards to the invite map pool, we're letting invite vote out/vote in maps based on the league wide map pool. For example, out of the 8 league wide maps, invite may vote out 2 of them and vote in 3 more. With this, they could vote out reckoner or metalworks, and vote back in bagel, granary, and badlands. It's up to them entirely.

Second, in regards to the league wide map pool, we do do surveys and are trying our best to find what maps people enjoy and which they don't enjoy (see villa being completely removed from the map pool in place of reckoner). We're going to give reckoner another season before reconsidering it's place, and similarly the koth rotation is something we are testing based on survey results as well.

For our most recent survey (Season 7), here are some results (just from the text document I have, no pretty formatting):

1 (3%) - Too small (not enough maps to choose from)
15 (38%) - Too small (not enough variety in maps)

Results
9 (41%) - Yes, keep Granary for season 8
9 (41%) - Neutral
4 (18%) - No, vote for another map
--

Map results like these are why we are letting invite deviate from the regular map pool, as often invite's statistics vary greatly from the rest of the league. It also lets invite test out new things (such as granary) so we can consider adding it to the general map pool next time we revise it. However as is, we do want to give reckoner another season.

#12 RGL Sixes Season 7 - Weapon Ban Survey in TF2 General Discussion
clckwrkI think surveys like this are hard to trust when it's so easy to brigade your way to influence the votes. If b4nny hypothetically pasted this poll in his chat and either told his viewers to vote to not ban the spoon or tactically expressed his opinion and "left it up to them," what does this say about the integrity of the voting? Hopefully something like that would be a violation regardless, but it's very easy for anyone with tf2 social capital to influence opinions and at that point it's hardly a democratic result. I'm not really sure what the solution is, but my first impression is that it makes much more sense to me for the league to either contact a representative from each team and ask them or just make the decision themselves based on whether or not it's affecting signups or something.

We're typically very careful about how we analyze survey results like this. This time, we're specifically looking at how members of each div voted, and tracking how that changes as you move from lower to higher divs. Furthermore, you also had to have played last season to vote, so that helps a bit. I do get your concerns though, and I'll make sure we consider those moving forward.
