    Patriot’s Place Website

    Helix eSports Patriots Place is a great location with many shopping stores, dining places, and activities around the venue which can be viewed in the link above. The venue will also have bleachers for spectators, as well as the main stage for a better viewing experience.

    Confirmed Dates and Structure of Tournament

    The RGL LAN will be scheduled to occur on the weekend of August 6th to August 7th (Saturday and Sunday). This will be three weeks after the regular season to allow the playoff teams to prepare by booking flights and hotels. As it is being held on a weekend, it will be a two-day event. Day 1 will cover the first round and semifinals of playoffs. Day 2 will cover the lower bracket finals and grand finals.

    (Note: Schedule might have minor changes prior to the start of LAN)

    Fundraiser and LAN Merch!

    To help fund the LAN, we are launching new t-shirt designs, along with NEW exclusive stickers and pins! Each merch item will be worth a certain number of ‘assists’, which will be used to track donor perks, such as signed merch, posters, and more! There will also be exciting community stretch goals, including a ghost pepper challenge! Check lan.rgl.gg/shop for more info!

    Spectator Passes

    Spectator passes will be sold at $20.00 at the venue and will be good for the weekend.

    PC and Peripherals

    32 Gaming PCs with monitors (headset, mouse, keyboard, and mouse pad provided to every setup as needed). Players are encouraged to bring their own peripherals. Players will be able to import a USB Flash Drive into the PC for custom configs and UI.

    Cost

    The cost of entry for Invite playoff teams will be free, including access to PCs during the entire two-day tournament. Spectator passes will be $20 for everyone else.

    Prize Pool Breakdown

    1. $1620
    2. $1500
    3. $1400
    4. $1300

    Payouts for the top 4 playoff Invite teams have been adjusted for this LAN season to help cover the team’s expenses to attend LAN.

    LAN Merch

    Store

    To help fund the LAN, we are launching new t-shirt designs, along with NEW exclusive stickers and pins!

    lan.rgl.gg

    For details regarding the RGL LAN, we have created a splash page with venue information, dates, schedules, and more. More details will be updated as we head towards the start of the event.

  • Quick PSA

    If you plan on attending the Helix LAN, we suggest players and spectators get hotels and flights as soon as possible.

    As the New England Patriots training camp is starting next week, this will likely will cause hotel rates to go up. Flights will get more expensive as the dates go by as well.

    Draft Cup Conclusion

    Thanks to all the players for participating in the event and everyone who came out to support the fundraiser.

    We managed to raise $1,141.48 so far in the cup! Proceeds will go to help cover the expenses of the teams attending the LAN, as well as the production team.

    If you are interested in still supporting the LAN, we have a shop here where you can buy LAN merchandise or donate. “Assist Points” are points that can be redeemed and unlocked for each tier in the image below. We are now currently at 1242 assists!
