On Saturday we saw one of the biggest weekly races for the randomizer capping out at 86 participants! As I was waiting for the race to begin I sat there recalling how stressful setting up the IRC was for my first race and decided it was time for an updated guide specifically for the Randomizer community. This guide will go into everything from rules to how to setup your SRL IRC account and what commands you need to be able to participate in these races.
