Global Rule Updates




[3003.2] - Regular Season Pick/Bans has been updated to clarify that pick/bans during the regular season must be completed 36 hours before the intended match time and the potential repercussions for failing to respond within this period.



[3004.1] - Playoff Map Selection has been updated to clarify the playoff map pick/ban order for BO3 and BO5 match series.



[1007.2.3] - Medals has been updated to clarify the conditions a player must achieve to be eligible for a medal. Bans impacting a player's eligibility for more than half of the matches played or an active ban over 3 months or longer at medal distribution will impact this eligibility.



[1007.2.4] - Fraud has been updated to add that impersonating RGL-approved casting organizations (e.g. TFTV, FiresideCasts, etc.) falls under the fraud section of the RGL rules.


[1008.16] - Disruption of RGL Services has been updated to clarify that players can be found to be disrupting RGL matches if they do not immediately disconnect or refuse to leave the server upon request. Please note that this applies before the start of the match, during halftime, ongoing gameplay, or during pauses.



[1006.2.5] - Sandbagging and Class Restrictions and [1009.4.4] - Ringer Approvals have been updated to clarify that if the enemy team can approve a ringer to play on a class they are restricted from in a division. Teams must also inform the enemy team of any class restrictions a proposed ringer may have before approval.


[1009.4.4] - Ringer Approvals has been updated to clarify that ringers must be approved by the enemy team in match comms. Additionally, ringer approvals are final; they cannot be retracted once approved by the team leader (barring extenuating circumstances as noted in the rule). Ringers approved for a match are still eligible to play even if it gets rescheduled to a later date.
