RGL Anti-Cheat Trials #2


The RGL Anti-Cheat team is looking for new members that are interested in working to better help the league be free from cheating.

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.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Have a credible and trustworthy track record
  • Multiple seasons/years of competitive experience(preference to those at a high level).
  • Ability to be impartial and honest with your judgment, and recuse yourself during cases that compromise your impartiality.
  • Ability to handle cases discreetly and keep the evidence as well the decision-making process confidential.
  • Have ample time to dedicate to thoroughly process and log individual cases and their respective evidence.

If interested, you can apply here through our forms here. If selected, you will receive a follow-up where you will enter a trial stage.

If you are interested in other open RGL staff positions besides Anti-Cheat, feel free to apply using the same form.

Global Rule Updates



[1008.5] - POV and STV Demos has been updated to be clearer on how POV failures during playoffs are handled, as well as to explain how subsequent offenses after playoff demo request failures are issued.


[1002.4] - Probation is being updated to clarify that a ban inserted after a third offense will reapply probation.


[1002.1] - Sportsmanship and Spirit is not adding anything new, but is being updated to clarify that the first offense for slurs, hate symbols, etc., is not always the first 2-weeks for the first offense. There are a select few cases that are much more egregious that have led to a much longer starting ban for the first offense.
