In addition to the finals, @godflow, @jinstream, and @themuffinman have been promoted to Commissioners of the NA region of the RHL. They will help maintain and shape the new direction of the upcoming RHL Season 2, and more upcoming SDC events! Current commissioners are happy with their efforts and very excited to finally have them on the admin team!

Ten Players Selected to Fill New Officials Role

The RHL commissioners have created a new role called Officials. Officials act as a relay between players and the Commission. They are charged with answering questions, pointing players in the right direction, moderating the Discord server, and acting as neutral league representatives as needed. Officials sit in on tournaments when commissioners cannot and they arbitrate disputes in the absence of a commissioner.

The RHL would like to congratulate the following eight players who have been chosen as officials.
