Server Guide



respawnleague.com Bookable servers

Servers will be distributed by the Respawn Bot via Discord PM's if booked through #book-server in our Discord. The Home team captain is typically expected to be the booker if being used for a match, if anyone else outside of the designated team captains is given RCON and it is misused, the offending captain will be punished.

To setup the server ready for your match, you must execute the following commands in the in-game console:

Commands

rcon_password (password here) -  Use the rcon_password supplied by the Respawn Bot.
rcon changelevel pl_upward    -  Substitute pl_upward with map you are playing.
rcon hl-koth                  -  Pick the right one for the map you are playing.
rcon hl-stopwatch (payload)   -  Without the brackets (or whats in them).
rcon hl-standard (5cp)	      -  Without the brackets (or whats in them).
  • Logs are provided at logs.tf.
  • STV Demos will be stored for 6 months.
  • If you want to keep any of these SourceTV Demos, you will need to download them. You can find the link to do so under the Help & Resources menu.


    Other Bookable servers

    Self Hosting vs Dedicated Servers

    We do not recommend, nor allow the use of Self Hosted Game Servers. These tend to be very unreliable due to ping, internet issues and poor setup.

    Dedicated Server providers, be it a Game Server or VPS / Dedicated Box, are typically sufficient for use within our league, however they must follow the below expectations:

    • Official Respawn League Configs & Whitelist MUST be used.
    • The server needs a minimum of 50mbps dedicated to it (if this is in your control).
    • The server must have the exact versions of the maps used in Regular Season play.
    • The server must have Logs.TF installed, along with recorded SourceTV Demos.

    There are enough tutorials for each and every one of these requirements, please do not come straight to us with a problem on your server.
