REC (Remote Esports Circuit) is the best way to watch, play, create, and compete in esports on a competitive or casual level. Play your REC games at home or visit us at the 1Life2Play Gaming & Esports Lounge in Northeast Ohio! In these unfortunate times, we aren’t afforded the luxury of meeting up with our friends for some casual matches, or getting out to compete in a tournament to show you have the skills of a champion, or even just watch some of the best play the same games you enjoy. We worked to bring you something that can bring players together, serve as a competitive launchpad for the future of esports, and offer a multitude of opportunities for players around the region. Enjoy REC and remember – GAME ON!
THESE LEAGUES HAVE JUST OPENED!
REC is supported through the Mission Control mobile app. This mobile app is available for all smartphones and available at missioncontrol.gg/play
Each League Season consists of either 2-, 4-, or 6-week schedules (including playoffs) where players/teams will compete against other players/teams within the same League or Pool for top placement on the Standings board at the end of the League Regular Season period. Once the Regular Season period is over, the Top 8 players in the League or Pool will play in a single elimination Playoff Bracket to determine the Champion.
Some Leagues offer a Champion’s Only League after 3 or 4 seasons of play where the 1st and 2nd Place players from each season are invited to play in the game’s Champion League.
For Leagues that have entry fees, the total sum will be split 70% to the Prize Pool and 30% to REC.
Become a REC Member and get into these games!
To register for a League, first you must join our Organization in Mission Control. We should be right at the top (our name does start with “1” after all, lol). Once you are a member of our Organization, you are free to join whichever League you’d like. Because League games are scheduled between you and your opponent (although we will provide a suggested time during REC), you are not limited to how many Leagues you can be a part of – join 1 or 100!
Payments are handled through the Mission Control mobile application when applicable. REC offers both paid entry leagues as well as casual, free to play leagues. Paid leagues offer many more benefits, including in-lounge discounts on visits, exclusive offers, and priority access to new events, apparel, and other offers.
In order to participate in REC, players must comply to all rules and regulations sort forth in this guidebook.
Players suspended from a REC competition or event may be suspended from future events.
Any player with a standing ban issued by the game’s developer/publisher, a state power rankings board/group, or 1Life2Play Gaming & Esports Lounge is ineligible to participate in any REC competition or event, and this ineligibility will last as long as the ban is upheld.
If 1Life2Play Gaming & Esports Lounge and/or its partners, administrators, or staff determines an in-game name to be inappropriate, the player will be asked to change their name or be disqualified. This disqualification will extend to teams, as well, where applicable.
Players are responsible for their own PC, console, software and internet connection. In the format of REC, we understand technical issues may occur. We encourage you to reach out to your opponent to reschedule any matches that cannot occur due to technical issues. However, please keep in mind, the league will not be held up due to your technical issues. League matches are due for reporting by the date outline within each league and by the league organizer. Should you not be able to play your league match a particular week or period, for whatever circumstance, you will receive a loss for that match and the league will continue, uninterrupted.
Players must be at least 13 years of age by the start of the tournament or event
All players are responsible to have a connection (ping) as good as possible for their region and technical situation.
At this time, to be eligible to play in the REC leagues, competitions, or events, players must reside in the Ohio area or immediate surrounding region. This is determined by proximity to the Northeast Ohio region and, in order to reduce complex mapping or a large listing of cities and states, we have restricted players to being within 265 miles of Cleveland, OH as calculated by Google Maps.
