This past weekend we had the honor of participating in the 2017 Global Whitelist discussion and were represented by our Platinum Manager, Mallory. For those of you that were not able to listen in, no final decision was reached regarding changes for this season. UGC fully supports the idea of a Global Whitelist and most importantly, will always do what we think is the best for the community. With Season 23 starting in less than a week, we are not able to wait for the Global Whitelist to be finalized. We are trying to be cognizant of what the community wants, and in that spirit we have decided to reuse the 2016 Global Whitelist with a few minor adjustments. We believe these changes are in alignment with the desire of our players.
The changes are as follows:
1. The Rescue Ranger will no longer be allowed in competitive play due to its unpopularity.
2. The Dalokohs Bar will now be allowed in competitive play due to its recent bug fix from Valve.
Following this season we will be hosting our own weapons poll to make sure we remain in alignment with what our players want. We will be continuing our collaboration with whitelist.tf, so if you use the whitelist script your whitelist should update automatically. If not, you can find the updated whitelist on our downloads page.
