#1 RGL LAN Update #2 - Patriot Place in LAN Discussion

Past articles: RGL LAN Update #1 (7/5/2021)

In this article, we would like to start discussing and communicating an early roadmap to the community for resuming RGL LAN. It should be noted that we have been in ongoing communication with Helix Esports, who is just as eager as we are to host our event, and we still hold our initial deposit. Here are important developments that we would like to share:

  • New Venue - Helix Esports Patriot Place

Working with Helix Esports, we have plans to switch to a different venue from the original North Bergen, New Jersey location. The Patriot Place location is located in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Important considerations for making this change included the additions of the main stage, access to any rental computers for teams and staff (rental fees will be covered), streaming equipment/setup, stage setup, and bleachers for spectators. While the cost of the new location is more expensive than the previous location, we have plans to offset the costs through revenue splits with the venue, RGL merch sales, and small league LAN sustainability fees (we will provide updates on this in a future article). Lastly, the new location is also in a more friendly location with many stores and activities to do around the venue.

  • RGL LAN for Invite 6s Playoffs in 2022

We do not yet have an exact date of this event, but after the Invite team leader meeting where we discussed a timeline that would be the most appropriate for this, leaders were strongly in favor of the LAN being scheduled during the summer of 2022. As such, we will aim to have the event held during the summer, as it would not conflict with school and other LAN events that players may have during the spring.

#31 Thoughts on new RGL ping guidelines? in TF2 General Discussion

To be clear, there are no new "RGL ping guidelines". There are no new ping guidelines that create a limit of "110 ping" to NA servers.

The rule in question refers to this:

https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/776052661454635008/887057802877603890/unknown.png

This is an update to the Region rule by reverting it to a previous iteration of the rule that existed in RGL prior to the start of 2021 (the rule itself had existed since the beginning of the league). It is a region cap on the number of non-region players in the North American leagues for RGL (2 for 6s, 3 for HL, etc.). When RGL hosted European and Australian regions in its league, there were region caps on North American players participating in these tournaments as well.

Other leagues such as RSL.tf and UGC also have similar region cap rules:

RSL.tf:

UGC:

(* UGC making an exception to Colombian / Peruvian players)

The full article, which explains more in detail about why the the rule was reverted can be found here: https://rgl.gg/?a=1566. In a 2020 article, this was also polled where the rule was clarified/explained:

#6 RGL PUGs: Technical Alpha in Projects
DiscordFrom the below picture, it seems like the players choose which class they play after they are picked. I was wondering about the rules regarding the picking/class roles because it can get pretty messy or not work that well if not done properly
https://twitter.com/RGL_gg/status/1340748808116944896/photo/4

I am assuming you are referring to the possibility of a captain choosing all the Medics (or of a specific class) during the drafting stage and causing the draft to be aborted. There will be different drafting styles, as well as checks to ensure that this does not happen.

As a notice, I encourage everyone to post feedback and questions in the discussion and feedback thread on the RGL forums, as this will be actively looked at by our developer team and staff. I cannot guarantee that I will be able to respond to all inquiries here.

#3 RGL PUGs: Technical Alpha in Projects
det-Is there any functional difference between this system and pugchamp? I'm not completely sure what the incentive for playing RGL pugs would be compared to playing already existing pug groups...

There are a lot more specific details about the pugging system that are not mentioned here but will be done so in a follow-up article.

This site does not only offer exclusive captain draft style picking as you see in PugChamp, but many other types of drafting systems that will be more inclusive to players that may not have a chance to get picked.

As a mention, we will be doing reveals to showcase this to the community. This will be done on streams.

#1 RGL PUGs: Technical Alpha in Projects

RGL PUGs is the official RGL platform for pickup games.

  • Formats: The site will support all of the formats that RGL runs, starting with Traditional 6s and later expanding to Prolander and Highlander. Additional game types may be added in the future.
  • Ranking system: Players will rank up and down based on match results, across 3 different skill divisions (Newcomer, Intermediate, Advanced).
  • Voice automation: Full Discord integration that will automatically handle moving players into the correct voice channels.
  • Flexibility: Built to allow easy pivoting between multiple different drafting styles and rulesets per-division and per-game type based on the best fit.

Socials (to keep up-to-date):

The official RGL PUG site discussion and feedback thread can be found here.

#5 Qixalite North America Server Trial in Projects
_KermitIowa and Vegas? East coasters gonna feel like west coasters on those servers

I would recommend people test their ping on the Iowa server. It's the most central location that is currently being provided of the three. Like DubThink stated, most people do get around the same ping to this location as they do to Chicago.

#2 Qixalite North America Server Trial in Projects

Definitely am excited. RGL being able to work with Qixalite to provide servers for the scene is positive. Hope the trial process will go well.

#360 yomps has passed away. in TF2 General Discussion

Yomps was always a player that I loved watching in competitive match casts, highlight videos, and streams. This news completely got me off-guard. My condolences go to everyone close to him and his family. Rest in peace.

#3 Virginia Servers in TF2 General Discussion

It seems to be recent. These are bots that are using a new lag exploit to lag and eventually crash the server. Casual is definitely pretty unplayable in NA unless this gets resolved.
