What better way to deal with the summer heat than getting some cool frags on the TF2 battlefield?! The third season of the $1,000 RGL Highlander league is here. Join the largest single competitive league in North America today! Highlander is a format of 9v9 playing on your favorite map types: Payload and KOTH. Class limit is one, meaning that every class will be on the battlefield at all times.
They have divisions for every skill level! It doesn't matter if it's your first season or your 20th. There is a division for players of your experience. RGL is about promoting a healthy community. This is done through taking a strong stance against toxicity and against players smurfing in lower divisions. They try to create a fun and fair environment for players to enjoy themselves against competition of their skill level.
The season starts on Monday, May 27th. All divisions outside of the highest one are free to play.

The RGL.gg No Restriction Sixes Grand Finals is finally here! It's a format where there are no weapons banned and no class restrictions. There have been a lot of unique strategies happening over the regular season, but what have these teams been holding back for the Grand Finals?
Don't miss out on the live action! The match starts at 9pm Eastern this Wednesday, April 24th. They'll be playing on koth_viaduct, pl_borneo and cp_gullywash. With almost every major map type being played, teams will have to adapt their strategies for each map.
Follow RGL.gg on their Twitch at twitch.tv/RGLgg to get notified when the match goes live.
You can also sub to their YouTube channel to get the post match VODs.

You think you've seen it all, haven't you? An endless sea of tanks accompanied by merciless automatons? Well think again, buster! Operation Memes vs Machines is here with the kind of tour that will knock your footwear AND socks off! Get ready for the most baffling battle of your life!
From the same team who brought you Operation Titanium Tank and Operation Canteen Crasher comes a silly, 7-day April Fools tour filled with nonsensical mischief. Rumor has it that the Robot Menace is under the weather due to a virus scrambling their programming. Now they're attacking us with lame internet jokes, and it's YOUR job to knock some sense into their metallic tin heads!
Gather yourself a team of fools to take on an army of fools in a grand spectacle of tomfoolery! Witness an intermediate-difficulty tour with different surprises and earn yourself a lovely little potato badge for your troubles! Starting on April 1st at midnight PDT, the tour will be available to play here. But don't delay, because while the tour is very tongue-in-cheek, it only lasts one week!
This event is open to players of all skill levels. Official servers will be available in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. Click here for more information!
Come back on June 1st for the next major Mann vs Machine event, Operation Madness vs Machines! (Postponed by 2 weeks from May 17.) Don’t delay on completing Operation Canteen Crasher, because it lasts only 6 weeks! (Operation Canteen Crasher will resume after the April fools event ends.)
Ever wanted to get into competitive TF2? Now's your chance! The European Team Fortress 2 League is running the Fresh Meat Challenge #2!
This competition is aimed at new, inexperienced players interested in playing competitive TF2. So if you're fresh meat, sign up before April 6th to compete! Every team can play with an experienced mentor to help them understand meta and play their best! Visit the ETF2L website for more info.
TFNew is an EU tournament and mentoring program for players new to competitive TF2 (maximum 2 seasons of experience, and nowhere above Open level). You do not need to have a team to play, simply sign up on your own (or with 1 buddy, if you'd rather learn with someone you already know) and you will be put onto a team of 6 main players plus potentially some substitutes.
For the next 2 weeks after you've been put on a team, you will practice with them and receive mentoring from your team's assigned coaches at prearranged times. On the weekend of March 8th-10th, teams will go into a group stage and then a double elimination playoff bracket to see which team will come out on top! Some matches may also be casted!
The goal of the cup is for players to learn the ropes of competitive TF2 while playing in a tournament with other newbies and learning from their coaches in a low-pressure environment, but there are rewards for just participating! Playing will earn you an in-game medal cosmetic as well as raffle entries into a giveaway of TF2 items!
Registration closes on February 22nd and for this cup the number of teams will be limited to 8, so make sure to sign up sooner rather than later!
If you'd like to participate, join the Discord server to find more info on the cup in the #announcements and #cup-dates channels. More general info and rules can also be found in the #rules and #faq channels.
