Global Rule Edits



Playoff map selections for double-elimination playoff structures have been updated to clarify how home status is given. This is not a new rule addition.


[1002.4] - Probation and using Banned Players has been updated to clarify what it means to be on probation (this is not adding anything new, but just reaffirming how the system works as outlined in the articles and site). We have also updated the maximum number of probation players to be a third of the roster (previously was 2). This means that a Highlander roster can contain up to 3 probation players, whereas 6s and Prolander can only have up to 2.

NOTE: RGL Conduct Survey #3 results, major offseason rule edits, and more will be announced in the upcoming offseason article.


Bans


These bans were enacted before the release of this article. If you would like to file a report, you can do so on our site here. This form will be for appealing indefinite bans in RGL.gg and this form will be for appealing all other bans in RGL.

NOTE: We only look at user-submitted reports. If you do not file a report, then there is a good chance that we have not seen it and are unable to deal with the situation.


Sexual harassment and inappropriate/lewd behavior


The following players have received permanent suspensions from RGL:

  • snooz - Breaking RGL's player conduct stance through improper interactions with a minor(s) in sexually suggestive ways.

Probation


Update on players that have been banned while on probation:

  • perfection - Minimum 2-Years - Threats of harm against RGL staff members and community members. (4th ban inside of RGL, 1st ban while on probation)

Given these recent incidents, the player's previous infractions, and that they are on probation. They have been put on an indefinite ban with an additional minimum sentence. After this period has elapsed (does not apply to permanent bans), they can appeal to have their ban lifted, provided they can show that they've changed as a member of this community.
