Elevate your online gaming experience across a wide selection of competitive and cooperative titles.
We are connecting players to play more games in more ways. We host gamer-run ladders, leagues, events and servers using a framework developed from the original TWL model.
Building stacks of organized players to deploy together and against one another in games, regardless of the game’s age or mainstream popularity, is what we aim to continue doing. Collaborating with various gaming cultures not only gives us the insight, opponents and support we need; it also gives us more quality games to play with more players.
We believe that hostinga place where you will bump into familiar faces and where people will recognize your name and accomplishments benefits the community as a whole. As the video game industry shifts away from providing dedicated servers and focuses on their own pro-level competitions, gaming communities struggle to stay afloat. At TWL we seek to return to that lost feeling of togetherness by providing an environment where players of all skill levels can interact, meet up for games, and create positive gaming experiences together.
Ladders hold an unassailable quality: they are a natural fit for being both inclusive and balanced. Every competitor joins the bottom of the ladder and inevitably works their way up to being surrounded by equally skilled opponents. Ladders can house multiple ecosystems within communities and provide endless, balanced entertainment without bias. Losing a match doesn't eliminate you like other leagues, it just affects your W/L history - and you can play again and again.
There's been a few over the years, we think this one will stick for several reasons:
Connect to our Discord and start talking/gaming today. TWL is a group-agnostic environment: use it to find teammates, clan mates, opponents, gaming events and more. By centralizing some of this activity we can further help players and teams extend the life of their gaming experiences by making new allies and rivals and by providing competitions and game nights to join. Come introduce yourself, promote your group, share your stream, or collaborate with us and organize something awesome for your community.
Originally launched on January 18, 2001 by co-founders Will ‘Polaris’ Everett and Myles ‘Triston’ Angell, TeamWarfare League (TWL) was a website originally developed to provide a competitive outlet for players of Starsiege: Tribes. Carried on the backs of its countless volunteer staff, TWL was able to evolve into a multi-gaming platform providing competitive outlets via ladders and leagues for a multitude of multiplayer games, both on console and on PC.
Through the years TWL saw well over 850,000 players join at least one of the over 130,000 teams registered across over 150 supported games. TWL quickly grew into one of the largest gaming communities on the planet. Through its history, one thing stood out amongst the rest; TWL was run entirely by a community of selfless gamers that banded together and volunteered their time to help share their love of competitive gaming with the rest of the world. From coding to admins and everyone in between, TWL would never have been possible without the efforts of the volunteers that made the organization so successful.
TeamWarfare League was sold in 2014 and in 2015 that ownership was stripped due to a breach of contract. Later that year a group of former admins gained ownership of the domain. When that group failed to successfully re-launch the project, the domain was simply lost and put up for sale. In 2019, a small group of former TWL admins regrouped and formed to create Rebound Gaming Network (RGN) in 2019 and hosted several highly successful community events.
A matured view and heightened demand prompted reconsideration of how TWL should return and relaunched in 2021 with several core TWL admins. Rather than being a "league" TWL is now seen as a network poised to connect communities and enhance gaming options for all, still carried on the backs of volunteers that seek to provide a fun, friendly, and inclusive competitive outlet for gamers of all skill levels.
