Season 13 finalized divisions, pre-season qualifiers, cheating policy update, bans

Date September 10, 2012

Finalized divisions

We have addressed feedback received from the Provisional Divisions and released the final Group Tables, which can be found below. If your team did not make it into the final divisions, you still have a chance of being substituted for a team that drops early in the season.

All teams that still have less than 6 players (or get less than 6 players in the next few days) should take care to add their last player until Wednesday, September 12. We reserve the right to replace all teams with less than 6 players with a team from the waiting list at that point. If you are still in the process of trialing but are positive that you will get your last player in time for the new season, you should contact an admin to explain the situation.

For everybody else it is now time to schedule the week 1 matches! Default dates will be set on Friday, September 14, for all week 1 matches without schedule.

Premiership/Division 1 Qualifiers

We asked all teams to provide their preferred playdays for the upcoming week. The original plan included a one night tournament, but some teams had a busier schedule than anticipated. We have settled for a schedule that should best accommodate all teams involved.

A full run-down on the schedule, brackets and other information pertaining to the Qualifiers can be found on their hub page.

>>>Season 13 Premiership and Division 1 Qualifiers<<<

Cheating policy update

For Season 13 onwards, we are extending our zero-tolerance policy to cover cheating committed outside ETF2L matches. Should we obtain conclusive evidence of a ETF2L player cheating in Team Fortress 2 in PCWs, scrims, on MGE/DM or other public servers, they will be banned from all ETF2L competitions for one year.

We are offering a time-limited opportunity for cheaters to turn themselves in to receive reduced bans. Any cheater who turns himself in before the ETF2L AC staff obtains proof of his exploits, will be banned for 7 months instead of 12 (two 6v6 Seasons instead of three, bans will expire in April instead of next September). This opportunity closes in two weeks on Sunday, 23rd of September.


Based on evidence provided by AnAkIn, the following players are now banned from all ETF2L competitions for one year.

    Sad to see Tarkus get banned, I love the pistol script he hooked me up with.

  6. Stuppah: .Dicknitas said:

    @Koetje what?

  7. Monkeh: .:ne:. - .:ne:. said:


    Great job everyone, keep on truckin’.

    Out of interest, the screenshot of matnun posted in the gargantuan thread shows hacking how? Genuine question. Tiny bit of yellow in the top right?

  9. Tardus: said:

    what are the evidences for these bans? fox1o told me no admin asked him for demos

  10. Mould: De-gnomed said:

    read the thread, anakin took client side screenshots, esp hacks shown on screen

  11. Bena: addict! said:

    israeli pride

  12. luzik: Suoli - moog said:

    Maybe the evidence is the photoshopped pictures anakin sent the admin team? Are you stupid?

  13. DuPe: [9mm] - HHH said:

    luzik trollmode activated

  14. wonder said:

    I hid my cheats. I’m safe.

  15. Rake: Lutunen - [hePPa] said:

    I found a ss of my xhair being precisely on target, is this conclusive proof of cheating?

  16. basH: hf said:

    tarkus talent of the season :D

    x22 makes it possible

  17. basH: hf said:

    btw that means that ret and matnun didnt won the bball cup againts us.

  18. Crazyman: BM Kappa - [T-A!] said:

    Wait, ETF2L banned people using screenshots which origins are unknown and were made using an exploit in the Source engine?

  19. cmd: (ETF2L Donator) - D&D said:

    AnAkin 2012

  20. Tardus: said:

    funny how u dont even ask for demos to prove something. such a sad league

  21. Casual: prtyboiz - T⑨ said:

    I’ve been told that Tarkus, when confronted with the evidence, did admit to cheating. (so the validity of the screenshots is irrelevant in his case).

    Dunno about the others though. This is why you never talk to the police without a lawyer, if they’d shut up they could easily claim to be set-up. :)

  22. xzr: puppeli said:

    the screenshots exist on the servers also, chance of anakin planting screenies on servers just to nail some jews is slim to none

  23. doks said:

    what xzr said.
    /close thread

  24. Crazyman: BM Kappa - [T-A!] said:

    Is this the part where you tell me how the plugin works and he gets the screens on the server?

  25. AnimaL said:

    So many buthurt ppl when cheaters are found, its amazing!

  26. ThalashEEE!: 7. - S-O said:

    this gon be gud

  27. Mould: De-gnomed said:

    They found my cheats using an exploit of their own, therefore it shouldn’t count.

    Grow up please??

  28. T-Mac: Animate - DA! said:

    Good to see these cheaters banned, who were probably hacking for a long time (the jews)
    Hope they won’t be back on tf2.

  29. Marcu said:

    it’s still funny how people who actually hacked can get less ban time than someone who multi accounted, probably some elitist fags are afraid of getting owned by “random” kids :))))))))))))

  30. IPZIE: SUAVE said:

    i get the feeling that this plugin causes glitches and moving laggs for the last 2 weeks, could this be anakin? it just happens on servers with it on

  31. Cauthon: (ETF2L Donator) - prly said:

    It might be your avast etc virusblock-program which is checking all the shots when they are taken. Stopped the freezing when I took the tf-folder out of the scan-area

  32. Spike Himself: TC said:

    How did etf2l verify the screenshots? They’re easily reproduced.

  33. Oxy: TC.Express said:

    I came here to comment and spike has wrote exactly what I was gonna say :D

    I kinda don’t understand this. If I take any of the legit screenshots taken of other peoples TF2 from anakins plugin, make a little edit with some text in the top-left corner and send it to ETF2L would they be banned?!?!

  34. ¤____________¤ said:

    Oxy and Spike, the screenshots were not just sent in by anakin. They are stored on the server that the players were playing on.

  35. hys: TLR said:

    @Spike/Oxy – if you have questioned the reliability of those screenshots, what do you think the chances are that “we” have too?

  36. Andee: GoT<3 - HoT<3 said:

    I cheated once while playing SMB on the gameboy, dunno if Anakin has screenshots of it. I turn myself in.. *sighs* :(

  37. rts: PrettyGay said:

    the people complaining about Anakins plugin :D dunno if trolling or just stupid

  38. ouch said:

    stupid, just plain stupid

  40. alba: TBC said:

    I sometimes use noclip on my own jumpserver….

  41. Spike Himself: TC said:

    Hys: I don’t know – the news post says “based on evidence provided by AnAkIn” – not “our AC team looked into this” or something along those lines. Don’t worry, unlike most I do trust the AC team. It’s just that, judging from the news post, it seems these people were banned purely because there was a screenshot of them, which as you know anyone could’ve made.

  42. mojo said:

    LOL ?? wtf ?

  43. Trent: ‹Con› said:

    You’d hope/expect it’s “based on evidence provided by AnAkIn” that the AC team looked into and verified. Wouldn’t you?
