RGL Advanced Season 3 Team Introductions

Welcome to RGL Highlander Season 3. This is shaping up to be one of highlander’s greatest seasons yet, with fantastic teams in every division, including Advanced. I, Micahlele, will be writing articles for Advanced this season. If you want to keep track of the juicy Advanced drama through the forums, you can do so here! If you want to make predictions for Advanced matches, you can post them here!

Home Depot eSports

  • animus
  • wubs
  • fordo
  • norphel03
  • Luigi
  • Bonesaw
  • Ness
  • Liam
  • Bliztank

After winning Main during Season 2 of RGL highlander, Luigi is ready with his BOPIS boys to play in Advanced for the fourth season of Home Depot eSports. Luigi says BOPIS has been showing obvious signs of improvement throughout scrims but doesn’t expect them to take Advanced by storm due to them being a move up team. However, with the addition of animus on scout, Home Depot’s flank is looking extremely strong. Luigi thinks this will be a fun season, and they will live for more to come.

Players to keep an eye on: animus, Wubs, and Liam


Blackjack and Hookers

  • Shim
  • Poseidon
  • Charizard
  • Kjr
  • Paul
  • Grynn
  • Toy
  • Lexa
  • Mascin_Tape

After a season of Main with several players leaving to join B&H White from Season 2, the original Blackjack and Hookers is back together and better than ever with arguably their strongest roster yet. Paul hopes to lead his team to placements this time around and is making sure the team works hard to get it by scrimming Invite teams to keep his players sharp. At the same time, B&H haven’t scrimmed every Advanced team yet, and with possible roster changes throughout Advanced, Paul just comments “Who Knows” on final placements.

The Money Team

  • xbs
  • mono72
  • Tom Servo
  • Makkabeus
  • Lizard
  • tuba god
  • General Nick
  • d3nny
  • 5perm

A new team has formed out of the ashes of Team Spooky led by General Nick, with Tom Servo, d3nny, and 5perm sticking around for the ride. With the full roster only coming together recently and the team having some availability issues, things haven’t been looking the brightest for The Money Team. However, General Nick assures that his team was formed to win and win they will.

brandonbrandonbrandonbrandonbr

  • Blank
  • josh
  • TMP
  • brandon
  • guy
  • Happy Eye
  • Abridge
  • ItsyAcore
  • Zokie0

Coming together from the remnants of [NEW MIC], brandonbrandonbrandonbrandonbr is a team filled with new players and old players alike. TMP, Abridge, and ItsyAcore all bring some great experience to the table. Combined with the new blood in Blank, this roster has some serious potential. Brandon says the team has been going through hardships with some roster changes, but they have gotten a mentor in the form of exile and things have been improving greatly through their scrims. While Brandon doesn’t believe the team can win Advanced, if they fix their issues this team could be the most slept on team in the division.

Nine Trey Gangsters

  • azzy
  • ?
  • colin
  • charis
  • figsy
  • ?
  • eggo

A large portion of the roster is still unknown for now, but this team was made entirely to have fun. Most of the roster hasn’t played the game in a long time, with some people even being away from the game for 6 years. They don’t care about placements; all they want to do is have a good time with friends.


Super Handsome Inteligent Team

  • cheers
  • Apathy
  • junrr
  • kinetic
  • Moist Master
  • Greenking
  • ellie
  • neum
  • Hino

After a 3rd place performance in season 2, the S.H.I.T. squad is looking for more. Additions like junrr, cheers, and kinetic boost the team’s potential phenomenally. The addition of neum on sniper solidifies this team's spot at the top of advanced. Hino and Moist Master look to get either 1st or 2nd this season and aren’t looking for a repeat performance of 3rd place.

Never Knows Best

  • civ
  • Kami
  • puzza
  • voosh
  • bzbzrobot
  • constantly
  • Ghadili
  • Bon Qui Qui
  • Craftkitty

Another main team has found itself moved into advanced. After a decent performance last season in main, Never Know Best has made some great roster changes in the form of civ and Bon Qui Qui on scout and sniper respectively, and voosh being moved to demo. Compared to the rest of advanced, voosh feels his team will be severely underestimated when up against teams with established names in the game. However, they won’t back down from a challenge, and nothing will stop them from learning throughout the season.

Players to keep an eye on: civ, Kami, Bon Qui Qui


Bruh Team

  • ?
  • pup
  • cookie
  • avian
  • Bear hoovy
  • Jman
  • Soala
  • Be My Private Dancer
  • agb

With the constant switching between main and advanced, Bear Hoovy has found himself in a lot of trouble. Going back and forth from main and advanced has caused him to lose Lehcs on scout, and they almost lost Be My Private Dancer on sniper. However, he has surprisingly managed to keep his roster in one piece despite the constant swapping. With all the things Bear Hoovy has put this team through, I doubt they will be able to solidify themselves as a mid-advanced team.

Players to keep an eye on: avian, Be My Private Dancer, agb
