RHL Season 5 League Play Is Nearly Complete

This weekend marks the last set of games for RHL Season 5 league play. The last place team in the Challengers Division will be excluded from the playoffs. Between all three divisions, there are two teams who remain undefeated, Vanilla Almond Milk in the Champions Division, and OWO What's This? in the Contenders division. The Challengers Division race is interesting as there is a slim possibility of a two or three way tie for first place. With A Pinch Of Salt's unfortunate withdrawal from competition Shadow Fox sits alone facing elimination, but a pair of wins and some help could see them through to the Playoffs after all.

This event will be a Captain’s Draft style, double elimination 3v3 Snow Day event. Grab your Captain Daddy hats, bundle up, and equip your Mountaineer wheels so we can all head to the hockey rink! This tournament will follow the same rules and regulations as the regular vVv Gaming CGN: Draft events do, except that the default map will be DFH Snowy or Utopia Coliseum Snowy instead of DFH Stadium.

When: 5PM EST / 2PM PST / 23:00 CET | Check-in starts at 4:30PM EST / 1:30PM PST / 22:30 CET and closes at 4:45PM EST / 1:45PM PST / 22:45 CET
Where: vVv Discord Server (https://discord.gg/p44AjNf) Discord Guide: http://www.vvv-gaming.com/discord
Format: 3v3 - Double Elimination Tournament. Best of three (Bo3) in the winner's bracket and best of one (Bo1) in the loser's bracket until the last two matches which return to best of three.

Server Settings:
- Snow Day mutators (ball type puck, ball bounciness low).
NOTE: Options must be also be changed in the mutators sub­menu!
- Map is DFH Stadium Snowy (Utopia Coliseum Snowy can also be used if both teams agree)
- Default for all other game settings

Registration: Visit http://vVv-Gaming.com/Rocket-League/Register on the day of the tournament to register.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CREATE AN ACCOUNT ON THE SMASH.GG WEBSITE, link here. IT WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE IN THE TOURNAMENT.

While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain. If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers. If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players. Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team. Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

The event will last around 3-4 hours.

If you have any questions, please come to the RHL discord: https://discord.gg/0oKFkmRqFee981oM

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.
