Update to Team Historical Seasons FAQ

The FAQ will be updated.


  • Once a team is connected to other teams, the name/tag is locked.
  • The auto joining of players during team creation is only allowed for teams in the same league, and from the last six months.
  • Team connections should be with teams of the same name. Variations of a team name may be changed to a single team name in order to be linked. We want to promote consistency.

Please create a support ticket in the RGL Discord if you have any questions regarding linking your teams.

Global Rule Updates

[1004.1] - Punitive Action toward Players, [1008.7.1] - Match Forfeits, [1008.15] - Match Points, and [2007] - Match Points have been updated to match the new scoring system for Highlander.

[1003.3] - Game Exploits has been updated to clarify mods and exploits that are disallowed by the RGL AC team.

[1008.3] - Rescheduling Matches has been updated to address edge cases where teams would try to "sneak" in reschedules without making a reasonable attempt to inform the other team about a reschedule.

[1006.2.5] - Sandbagging and Class Restriction Guidelines is not adding anything new, but is being updated to better clarify how class restrictions are handled for qualifier teams.


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. Appeals can also be found on the same page.

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