LFS Posting Guidelines#33
The title/subject of an LFS post should be marked with the division you wish to scrim. It is important to ensure you have a properly formatted title so your post is more likely to be found by potential scrim partners.
LFS [Division] - [Team Name] - [Scrim Time]
Here are a few examples:
LFS Advanced - saving lieutenant lemons - Saturday 9:30/10:30
LFS Open - Show 'em the Pine - Thursday, 8:30
All times for scrims are usually setup as times in eastern timezone.
In your posts, you should also try to include all the following:
- Date/time(s) you are looking for
- Any specifications like “High IM” or “Playoffs IM”

- If you can host the scrim on your server or not
- RGL Team Profile Link (if possible)
