ETF2L Highlander S17 W5: JOEYOTECH Feila vs. Super Dickmann’s KANNONEN! & kiti s bakenbardami vs. Tourettes Frenchclub

Date December 13, 2018


Banner by soda | Written by joe the brave and Wiethoofd

With the last two games of the regular Premiership Highlander season on the cards tonight, join us as we look at both games, and what all four teams will be looking to accomplish.

JOEYOTECH Feila vs. Super Dickmann’s KANNONEN!

Earlier this week, we watched Hungary TORPEDO and Ukraine inVision battling over a spot in the ETF2L Premiership playoffs. With TORPEDO taking Tuesday’s game as a 4-2 win, Luxembourg Super Dickmann's KANNONEN! will need to put on a show for their playoff hopes to be fulfilled. To make matters more complicated, this won’t be easy, as their opponent tonight is not only top of the table, but unbeaten along the way: UnitedStates JOEYOTECH Feila.

In this best of three on Badwater, only a win (or a Golden Cap victory) will guarantee SDCK a playoffs position. With a full six points, they’ll be the higher seed against Hungary TORPEDO. A golden cap win or loss puts them as lower seed. And a loss (or GC loss) will see inVision take their place.

There’s no such angst on the side of UnitedStates JOEYOTECH Feila, who’ve done a sterling impression of their American namesakes. Should they walk away from tonight’s payload even empty-handed, they’ll still be comfortably top of the table, with Grand Finals firmly in their sights.

Will it be an invincible season for Joe and co? Or will the KANNONEN blast into playoffs contention once more? Join Spain CeeJaey and European jakeowaty on KritzKast to find out.

The following player has used a teammate’s account while being banned. Their ban is extend for 1 year:

Japan sl/a/sh supported him by sharing the account so he is banned alongside him for 6 months.
Ukraine fotor assisted in the ban evasion as a team leader and is therefore banned for 6 months.

The following players failed to provide a requested demo several times. They have been banned for their respective durations.

  • Turkey E H E – not uploading demos twice – 2 weeks
  • UnitedKingdom Piggles – not uploading demos twice – 2 weeks
  • Portugal 31 – not uploading demos twice – 2 weeks
  • Romania bluR- – not uploading demos twice – 2 weeks

  • Sweden vani – not uploading demos four times – one year

The following players have been caught with VAC bans possibly affecting TF2, and will be banned from the league for one year:

+ 56 inactive ETF2L accounts.

As these players have not been caught cheating by our staff, their match results are not affected.

If you were banned due to a VAC ban on your Steam account that doesn’t affect TF2, please contact an admin to get the ETF2L ban removed.

The Anti-Cheat Team is stocking up again, apply now!

The remaining Anti-Cheat staff would like to take this opportunity to thank the very knowledgeable players Sweden Collaide and Switzerland MIGHTY BURGER ツ for their continued hard work and commitment over their Anti-Cheat career. They will be missed and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

Meanwhile Germany Amaterasu has completed her trial period and we welcome her aboard the staff fully.

However this still leaves an open position for anyone interested in working for a league free from cheaters. Anti-Cheat admins ensure fair competition in the league by analyzing submitted evidence for signs of cheats and issuing bans to confirmed cheaters. Submitted evidence is rarely clear-cut – most cases are challenging and involve a fair bit of “forensic work”.

Anti-Cheat staff need to have a good sense of trust and morality, additionally be excited by detective work and technical aspects of the source engine that come with demo viewing and cheats and such. It’s also important to have no bias and be respectful of the democratic process on voting.

Please don’t be intimidated to apply, it’s a position that you can really only improve on with real experience.
