Invite Player Conduct
In the last article, we made our stance on how we will handle harassment and toxicity
very clear. The truth is that players that play in our league are expected to uphold the sportsmanlike integrity that RGL encourages. We also understand that “trash talk” is part of any competitive community, however using derogatory terms directed at other people during competitions is not.
For the Invite division, we place a much higher scrutiny over the comments made by players in this division, as this is a casted division and these players heavily represent the league. Furthermore, these are the players that are often seen with the biggest voices and having players that display continuously toxic behavior are not players that we want in these positions.
As such, Invite players that receive suspensions for conduct behavior are subject to longer durations than other divisions. A few examples of this are:
These Invite players received 3 month
suspensions for their racist comments in a match server.Article on the ForumsBanner made by River
