The three aims of

I want to make a league that has a healthy balance between competition and community


The basics of this idea comes down to, "treat others like you want to be treated." You want to be treated with respect, fairness, and thoughtfulness. You should treat others with the same. This isn’t something that is automatic. To keep this in mind during a close match, to handle yourself under pressure, to keep your temper, and keep good Spirit is not always an easy thing, but it is important. Every moment you choose to take the high road helps put one more brick in the path to becoming a better community.

It’s important that we stand together and don’t let our ugliest voices also become our loudest. To rest on the idea, "Well every other online community is toxic, therefore we can be toxic too," is simply not something I can stand behind and neither should you. This isn’t to say that you can’t heckle or have some good natured trash talk, but you must be mindful that there is a line between playful and asshole. To use the excuse that “others should just have thicker skin” is just that, an excuse for someone to have poor Spirit.

People will notice when you do the right thing and when you treat others with respect. Don’t be afraid to praise others for their good plays, because impressions last. With all this, the entire point is to have fun. Creating a good natured environment around a great game can create some amazing moments.

The Meta

RGL stands with people who want to try something different, to try something new. Too often in games, people often fall into a stale meta. The top teams have a certain playstyle and to do anything outside that is chastised. Sometimes, even having success with with a non-standard class is considered bad manners.

We want to remind people that just because the top teams are playing a certain way doesn’t mean that you have to always mimic it exactly. If people only every strictly followed what others were doing nothing would ever change. That’s not interesting! What is interesting is trying new ideas, good or bad. Trying existing ideas and trying to understand why they work.

Learn from your mistakes, don’t get stuck doing something that isn’t working. Have good Spirit when being constructive with others and with yourself and remember… There’s no such thing as gimmicks- only success or failure.


When it comes to being an Admin, it’s not always easy. A lot of situations are not pure black and white, but shades of gray. It’s our responsibility though to do our best in that area and try to make rulings and decisions as consistently and fairly as possible. We want to be admins who make decisions based in reason, not reaction. We will do our best, but ultimately we are human. We will make mistakes, we will do our best to own the situation, learn from it, and make sure we do not make the same mistake going forward.
