Welcome to Stage 2!

Stage 2 is upon us. Thanks to all the teams participating!

Groups are live for Stage 2, which will run until 9/27. Please aim to complete most of your matches by 9/20.

Team Captains, check your email for invites to your Challonge group, and your team pages on the website for your group assignment. Be sure to upload your screenshots and replays to Challonge!

For Stage 2, Gold Groups have 5 teams each, and Silver Groups have 4 teams each. The top 3 teams in each Gold Group will remain in the Gold Groups for Stage 3. The top 2 teams in each Silver Group will remain in the Silver Groups for Stage 3. We are also welcoming 3 new teams into the Silver Groups.

The Home and Away team rules are more complicated than ever before! Please take note of the following:
-In Gold Groups, Home and Away team rules are normal for all odd numbered matches on the Challonge group page (left column), where the first team listed is the Home Team for that match. For all even numbered matches (right column), the rules are reversed, where the second team listed is the Home Team for that match.
-In Silver Groups, the Home and Away team rules are the same as they were in Stage 1. In matches 1-5, the rules are standard, and match 6 of each group has the rules reversed, where the second team listed is the Home Team.

We have extended the grace period for roster changes for the entirety of Stage 2. Free agents and teams, please keep us informed of your roster updates.

Good luck!

Season 1 Overview:

● The RHL Season will play a series of “progressive group stages”. Every 3 weeks, teams will be assigned a group to play a round robin with (where each team has a match with every other team in their group). The results of the round robin will determine how teams are grouped for the next round robin stage. Teams performing well will be invited to the playoffs at the end of the season.

● Team captains will be responsible for scheduling their assigned matches during the season, and a match may be played anytime during the first 2 weeks of each stage, as long as both teams agree. The 3rd week of each stage will be reserved for tiebreaker matches and other matches needing administrative direction.

● Team sizes will be 4-­8 players, with PC and PS4 players allowed to compete.

● The playoffs will start with a total prize pool of $500. The pot split will be 40% ($200) for 1st place, 20% for 2nd, and 10% for 3rd and 4th place, and 5% for 5th-­8th.
