Verify Sever Players Tool, Global Rule Updates, and January 2024 Bans

   exa   - 2/25/2024

Verify Sever Players Tool



To help players verify the identities and teams of all the players on a server for a scrim or RGL match, we created a tool for this.

To use it, you will need to paste the output you retrieve from typing status in your in-game console. Once you hit the "Verify" button, it will give you a summary of players that have no RGL account, are banned in RGL, have a pending RGL ban, and are new/previously competed/are competing in the format that you are looking up.

A practical use case would be to ensure that all the players on the opposing team in your RGL match are rostered on the team that you should be facing.

The tool can be found here. The “Verify Sever Players” link can also be found under the "LEAGUE" dropdown at the top navigation bar on the RGL site.
