Firstly, I'd like to welcome everyone to the inaugural AU/SEA Prolander League, and wish everyone luck in the season ahead!
There will be 5 weeks in the minor rounds for all divisions, with Div 2 being split up into two separate pools. Each pool (and Div 1 as a whole) will perform a round-robin in the minor round.
The maps for each week are:
- PL Upward
- KOTH Product
- PL Badwater Pro
- KOTH Ashville
- PL Borneo
Each week, match points are awarded based on how many rounds your team wins in a match vs how many rounds were played until a winning condition was met. (For example, a team who wins a payload map 2-0 will gain more points for that match than a team who wins a payload map 2-1. Likewise, even if you are the losing team, winning rounds within the match will still give you match points)
The final standing will be based firstly on the number of matches each team won, then the number of match points each team has.
Major Round (Finals):
Div 1 will have 5 of the 6 teams in the major round, with the top three teams starting in the upper bracket and the 4th and 5th placed teams starting in the lower bracket.
Div 2 will see the top 2 teams from each pool enter an upper bracket, with the 3rd and 4th placed teams from each pool entering the lower bracket.
More information regarding the finals structure will be released later.
I would also like to remind all players that RGL is based around the core values
of having a healthy balance between competition and community. This means that racism, bigotry, and harassment are not allowed on our platform. Any infractions that detail and confirm administration harassment, usage of slurs or hate speech will be subject to a minimum 1-week suspension.
Finally, matches for Week 1 have been posted
, and the default match time is this Thursday (23/8) at 8pm AEST, with the results due by Sunday (26/8) at 11:59pm AEST. For information on how to play the payload format, refer to the stopwatch section of the rules page
