RGL (Recharge Gaming League) is a North American 7v7 League. It's currently the only Prolander league in existance.

History[edit]

A number of figures in the highlander community were playing with the idea of having classlimit 1 in 6v6 to force the usage of situational classes in competitive. This eventually led to the Challenge Cup in late 2016, a cup with $2000 USD in prizes wich was meant to be 6v6 but was changed to 7v7 in the last minute. Sigafoo would later create RGL a league specifically aimed at 7v7 that unlike most other community leagues would have prize money. It had a prizepool of $4000 USD in its opening season wich attracted many high level [[ESEA-Invite] players to the league.

Divisions & Ranks[edit]

  • RGL-Invite
  • RGL-Division 1
  • RGL-Division 2

Maps[edit]

The mappool and gamemodes are very similar to those of the Highlander leagues.

Ruleset[edit]

In pick and ban Prolander each team bans 3 weapons and picks 3 weapons that can't be unbanned. The bans affect both teams.
There's a general classlimit of 1 and each team consists of 7 players.

    • Medicicon.png 1, Snipericon.png 1, Spyicon.png 1

Format[edit]

RGL traditionally runs three seasons a year in both the 7v7 and Highlander formats. Each season generally starts in the Summer, Spring, and Winter. Teams are placed into skill divisions based on the combined experience on the roster. During the regular season, teams will play against opponents with a similar rank win/loss streak. For the playoffs, the Top 4 or Top 8 teams in a division are placed into a title bracket. All divisions play in a single-elimination bracket, with Highlander using a Gauntlet System for its Invite Division. All playoff matches are played in a Best of 3 format.

Regular season matches are played on single maps, in 2 halves. Depending on the game type, the win conditions differ:

  • On King of the Hill maps, the first half of the map ends only when one team wins 2 rounds. The second half ends if the other team wins 2 rounds or when one team wins their 4th cumulative round.
  • Attack/Defend and Payload maps are played as best of 3 stopwatch rounds. Teams alternate between attacking and defending every round, and each team defends once in a half. The round is won by whichever team captures the most points the fastest.

Highlander[edit]

RGL currently only supports North America (NA) for the Highlander Format
