Old RGL Medal Concepts


Unfortunately due to new medal models no longer currently being accepted into TF2, RGL and other TF2 leagues and organizations are unable to request new medals and must reuse their existing medals in the game. In the past, community members have created potential RGL medal concepts, and while they no longer can be considered for acceptance in the game (until Valve updates or reverts their current policy), we would like to showcase them to the community.

RGL Winter Staff Applications


  • RGL Highlander and 6s will be opening up division administrator and moderator positions. If you are interested in working to help improve our formats, then we encourage you to apply.

If admin positions are filled, we may contact you to potentially join the staff as a moderator instead.

In addition to the above, we are also looking to recruit experienced and talented individuals in the following categories:

  • Discord or Forum Moderator - As a moderator, you will be tasked to monitor the chat and deal with issues as they come up. A thorough understanding of the rules is necessary for this area. Candidates will be using our moderation tools (depending on either the forum or Discord) to effectively moderate our chat platforms.
  • Guide Writer - As a guide writer, you will help with the RGL guides project. This may consist of helping with writing guides for new players, editing guides, tutorials, or doing voice-overs for videos. Players are recommended to have previous competitive experience at a high level or have played TF2 for a long time to help with producing these guides.
  • Developer - For the RGL site, we are looking for those with mid-level experience in C# to help with the current site codebase. For the RGL API and any new RGL projects, mid-level experience in React, Node, or any tech stack are skill sets that we are looking for. If you have programming or technical experience in other languages, please apply and specify in your application. If you have any potential project ideas you may also be able to contribute to, please specify those as well.
  • PUG Runner - As a PUG runner, you should be able to run PUGs once every two weeks and are expected to act mature and approachable while maintaining a fun/healthy environment for players.
  • Anti-Cheat - As an anti-cheat admin, you are responsible for preventing and punishing cheaters that play in our league. You will utilize tools and methods to detect the usage of cheats, review and analyze demos, log alternative accounts, request demos of suspected cheaters, lead investigative work to find evidence and connections in cases, and more.

Experience in these fields is preferred. If you have applied for any of these positions and have not received a response or been selected, feel free to apply again.

If you would like to apply, you can fill out a form

from there we will go through the submissions and potentially ask for a follow-up. If you have any questions regarding positions feel free to open a ticket in our Discord.
