This is a completely opinionated post. Do not take everything I say seriously as its all based on my own personal experience in 6s and HL.
South American players have been flocking to RGL for some time now, with excessive ping as high as 160 in some cases, making a lot of SA players prefer the hit scan classes instead of the projectile based ones (obviously). This in itself is not a problem. More players = more competition.
The issue is when these players are playing sniper (sometimes heavy). Sniper on high ping on top of bad internet (which unfortunately most SA players have bad internet) feels like way more of a nuisance then it does in normal scenarios. The TF2 lag compensation kicks in heavily for these players granting headshots when on your screen you’re already behind a wall.
This isnt just an issue with south american players. There are a few snipers I’ve played against in PUGs with completely normal ping, but still getting these backtrack type headshots on you because their internet is just bad.
I don’t know how RGL would deal with this but situations like this https://clips.twitch.tv/PoorImpossibleMallardOSsloth-YBSXZAf0j8eVMU5L happen all the time.
Just doesn’t feel like healthy competition for me personally. I’d like to hear what others have to think about it.
