Respawn League was an Asian and Oceanic Team Fortress 2 league with a focus on bringing the Highlander format to those regions in an accessible and reliable manner. After its establishment in September of 2018, Respawn League went on to host both 4v4 and BBall tournaments in subsequent years, before being dissolved into ozfortress' Highlander Seasonal League in May of 2022. Co-founder of the Respawn League - core has recently been made the Head Admin of ozfortress, and staff previously overseeing RSL competitions have been instated as ozfortress' Highlander League Admins.
Respawn League made use of a custom whitelist for its Highlander competitions.

RSL 4v4 was split into single-division regions for the first two seasons, however very low participation in the ASIA region caused the two locations to be combined for Season 3. 4v4 was then effectively retired for the rest of the organisations' duration with the exception of a single AU/NZ 'Quadlander' event in 2021 - the first RSL 4v4 event to feature more than one division.
