  • Appeals

Our Support page now contains links for the appeals form.

As per rule [1002.4.5] - Lifting Probation, this is the form for players requesting to lift their probation.

  • Team Color


As a reminder, if there are disputes between teams on the starting sides, [1008.14] - Medic Melee Fight
will take into effect.


Global Rule Edits



[1002.4.9] - Offseason and RGL Platform Bans clarifies the fact that league bans from RGL apply to every RGL platform (e.g. Discord, Forums, etc.). In addition, the part that mentions that offseason bans are delayed to the season start is not adding anything new, but is being added into the rulebook for clarity. A new rule update is that this offseason ban will now also take place until the start of the next season. The season length of the ban will be unaffected (e.g. players banned for the use of slurs during the offseason will still have a two-week ban duration for the start of the next season).


[1010.1.5] - Anti-disruption Guidelines has been added to give guidelines in the rules for players to reference to avoid possible disruption during a casted match.


Bans


These bans were enacted before the release of this article. If you would like to file a report, you can do so on our site here. This form will be for appealing indefinite bans in RGL.gg and this form will be for appealing all other bans in RGL.

NOTE: We only look at user-submitted reports. If you do not file a report, then there is a good chance that we have not seen it and are unable to deal with the situation.
