Global Rule Edits

[1003.3] - Game Exploits has been updated to list another common exploit, which is the uber pause bug.

There is still a bug for players that may be unfamiliar where medics can continue healing a player during a pause. This allows the medic to build ubercharge. We insist that server owners update their servers with this updated pause plugin which prevents this from happening.

For teams that abuse this exploit, disputed rounds may be overturned, and/or punishments will be given to teams and players accordingly.

[1008.5] - POV and STV Demos has been updated to clarify which acceptable file hosting sharing websites are allowed.

[1002.4.11] - Team Mutiny has been added to address the formal process of how a team can elect to have a team leader's status removed or for a player to be removed from the roster entirely.

[1005.3.1] - Team/Player Due Diligence is not adding anything new but is updated to clarify what is an example of aiding/assisting/supporting an alt account.

[1002.4.10] - Offseason Bans has been updated to clarify that offseason bans are delayed until the next season specified in the ban reason. This will also only affect participation in offseason cups and not other league formats that may start earlier (6v6 beginning earlier than the Highlander season).

[1009.3] - No Live Spectators has been added to clarify that live spectators are strictly prohibited in any RGL match.

[1004.1] - Punitive Action toward Players has been updated to address players that want to request the league to have their account blacklisted may do so. (reasons for doing so may include wanting to quit the game and making it harder to return, etc.)
