I’m confused where within the rules it says that SA players are unable to compete
This rule existed before changing to a ping-based system and players such as legit were able to compete just fine
Under these new guidelines, there is no hard ping cap for non-NA players. There is only a limit to how many non-NA players may participate on a team. SA individual players can still find opportunities to succeed on NA teams. I have seen many non-NA players compete at a high level within both sixes and Highlander under these “new” guidelines
This is the issue. Most players from SA that came to RGL were Brazilian or Peruvians. Peruvians never presented as bad experiences to play against because they have less than 110ms on NA.
If latency is not an issue for one or two players from South America (which is what the rules were like since RGL started) why would it be now?
The 150ms latency rule was imposed (like I said in the docs) to include Peru and Colombian players. This was imposed at the beginning of 2021. 4 days before this was still like so.
With now less than a week before the first match from Season 7 is disputed this is changed back. It wouldn’t have been a problem if this rule change was done before the Season was officially announced, if so we wouldn’t have organized our teams in a way that they abided by existing rules at the moment of inscription.

That’s not a new rule, it’s old. It’s similar to what you mentioned in your document about players with like really excessive ping.
I have never referenced the Connection rule, but rather the Region rule, which is the one not allowing us to play.
Excessive ping should be defined as well, because all scrims played (in my experience) with 180ms did not present any complaints from the other team at any given moment.
Before this rule change, with the latency based system, Peru players were excluded from the “out of NA” rule (because they have less than 110ms). Now, by removing this rule, all teams that had Peru players were killed because they now abide by the region rule.
In our document we gathered distinct opinions and experiences from players inside North America that played against us (or other South American players with +150ms) guaranteeing latency did not offer a bad experience nor rubber banding/lag spiking in any occasion.
Also, yeah, out of region players aren’t being forbidden from playing, just subject to restrictions.
Like I said before, this wouldn’t be an issue if this rule change was done just days before the season begins.
All teams with South American players were already organized and rostered in a way that rules criteria was met. With this rule change, they are not.
