Stopwatch Config Update
We have released a minor update to our Stopwatch configs:
mp_maxrounds is now set to 2
With this change, mp_tournament will now successfully reset after each map round (after each team has both attacked and defended). This should improve compatibility with plugins that start/stop demos based on mp_tournament and take end-of-round screenshots.
Note: You will still need to either change teams between rounds and set Ready, or use mp_switchteams console command.
You can download the new ETF2L Stopwatch config for Highlander here.
Highlander Whitelist Update
The Bazaar Bargain is now banned from use in Season 4. This ban is forced by a recently introduced bug that allows the weapon to increase the headshot counter by missing shots, and will remain in effect until the bug is fixed. Please update your servers with the latest whitelist to block this weapon in Season 4 matches.
AC Staff Update & Bans
ETF2L’s AC department has underwent significant changes:
After a period of inactivity, HYS has left the AC team due to lack of free time. We thank you for your time spent keeping ETF2L cheater-free.
The team has been joined by two new KillAri and gf18_idiot, both active admins in the French Team Fortress 2 League with a number of caught cheaters under their belts. They’ve done a lot of work in a short time since joining ETF2L staff as trials, and have earned their promotion to full-fledged AC admins.
We are still looking for additional Anti-Cheat admins to help us keep the League free of cheaters. Please check the Anti-Cheat application page for requirements and information on how to apply as an AC admin.
To celebrate the promotion of our new staff members, as well as to share the fruits of their labor, we hereby declare the following players banned from all ETF2L competitions for 1 year:
Any attempts to bypass a League ban will result in an even longer ban on all accounts associated with the player. Don’t do it.
Any matches in recent seasons that involved these players will be changed to default losses. One team used a banned player in all of their matches and thus had their ETF2L Season 14 results revoked completely:
Results involving a VAC banned player are not affected, unless the player has been additionally caught cheating by our AC team.
