Initial Season 2 article
RGL Invite playoffs LAN details
The RGL Season 2 LAN will be held at Helix eSports
in North Bergen, New Jersey, right outside NYC. Helix made headlines recently due to their partnership with the NFL Patriots and the OWL team Boston Uprising (with whom they'll be opening the doors to a new Boston Esports Facility in January 2020). While RGL S2 LAN will be held at their original well-established location in North Bergen, New Jersey, we are still excited to be partnering with a growing Esports company like Helix. Here are some additional details from from Helix's website about the venue:
"With 150 permanent gaming stations, Helix eSports is the largest gaming center in the United States. Across our 6,500 square feet and 5 dedicated gaming rooms, our setups comprise of 110 state of the art HP Omen Gaming PCs, 35w PS4s, 10 Xbox Ones and 7 Nintendo Switches all connected to dedicated fiber internet.
