RGL PUGs: Technical Alpha

   exa   - 12/20/2020
As the RGL PUG site heads closer to an alpha stage, we would like to share more details on the progress so far. It should be noted that the site was built from scratch this year specifically for Team Fortress 2.

  • Formats: The site will support all of the formats that RGL runs, starting with Traditional 6s and later expanding to Prolander and Highlander. Additional game types may be added in the future.
  • Ranking system: Players will rank up and down based on match results, across 3 different skill divisions (Newcomer, Intermediate, Advanced).
  • Voice automation: Full Discord integration that will automatically handle moving players into the correct voice channels.
  • Flexibility: Built to allow easy pivoting between multiple different drafting styles and rulesets per-division and per-game type based on the best fit.

The goal is to build a flexible and dynamic system that we can tailor to the needs of the community. There will be plans to do a sneak peek livestream with the community. Lastly, we have plans to have a follow-up article where we will dive deeper into the technical features of the site and the finer details of how the system works. To keep up-to-date, please stay connected on the RGL Discord or follow us on our Twitter.

NOTE: This preview of the RGL PUG site are not finalized in any capacity. It must be reiterated that this is a work in progress and that there will be polishing done prior to an official public launch.
