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.

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.)
