RGL Modernized Docs/Rules, Global Rule Updates, July 2022 Bans, and More

Past monthly articles: January, February, March, April & May, June, July


docs.rgl.gg - A documentation site for Recharge Gaming League



We have moved our rulebooks, guides, FAQs, and other relevant documents over to http://docs.rgl.gg. By moving our pages over to the new docs page, we can utilize markdown formatting, easier searchability of our rules, as well as all of RGL resources and guides in one place. As this is an initial release, please make a support ticket in the RGL Discord if you notice any bugs or issues with the new page.


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:

  • Graphic Designer - As a Graphic Designer, you will be using Photoshop, Illustrator, and or other software to create professional-looking art for RGL, focusing on poster overlays, banners, and promotional layouts. Must be able to join a two or more people workflow, especially with our SFM crew.
  • SFM Graphic Designer - As a Graphic Designer, you will be tasked with using Source Filmmaker and editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop to make high-quality posters, banners, and graphics for our social media channels. In-depth experience with SFM and post-processing required. Candidates will be asked to follow a similar editing style to our current banners.
  • Voice Casters - As a caster, you will have to speak constantly through every cast, this requires you to have a microphone that can transmit your voice. The higher the quality of your microphone the better because this is what the viewers will be listening to.
  • Camera Production - Being a cameraman requires having fast and stable internet on a platform, you need to be able to stream at 720p 60fps (with a minimum of 7-8 Mbit) on any streaming service such as Twitch. Players are expected to have previous competitive experience at a high level or have played TF2 for a long time to develop a game sense to help with observing. A computer that can run TF2 at 60-100fps WHILE live streaming the games you will be observing is required 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.
