Bans. A lot of them.

Date May 20, 2013

The following players have been found guilty of cheating by our AC team, and as such are now banned from all ETF2L competitions for 1 year:

Valve has recently released a major update for VAC, adding detections for numerous cheats old and new, including some that have been considered “VAC safe” for years, resulting in a huge wave of VAC bans across all Source games.

The following players have been spotted with fresh VAC bans and are now banned from all ETF2L competitions for 1 year:

Though some of these players claim the bans were only for using OpenPlugin exclusively outside of ETF2L matches, whether to trust the legitimacy of these claims is left to our players. ETF2L enforces TF2 VAC bans regardless of their cause.

As these players have not been caught cheating by our AC team, the results of their Season 15 matches will not be affected.

In an earlier newspost, we have stated that we may ignore a VAC ban, if the user can present proof from Steam Support that his account was hijacked and used to cheat in TF2 shortly before the ban. Unfortunately, one of our users attempted to exploit this opportunity by presenting sloppily falsified “evidence” that he reported his hijack to Steam Support.

For attempting fraud, France Neoxyde‘s ban has now been extended by an additional 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.

    i remember of Chiakii in mge two month ago, i have spotted this trigger. My surprise today when i have see his ban

  17. Crafz said:

    Can you explain the ban on Chiakii please? Because I submitted a demo 3 moths ago and screamed wallhack/trigger(not just me) and the AC team was like: “Nah man, what are you saying, he’s clean.” So why did he get banned now?

  18. Spike Himself: TC said:

    Crafz, if you report someone for hacking, the AC team will then start to review the demos. It’s not possible you got a reply from them at all regarding the player’s legitimateness. AC will not release such information regardless of when and how you ask, until a news post like this one is published.

    It matters little either way, as he is now banned.

  19. djc: d2f~ said:

    bullshit anti-cheat admins won’t tell people such information.

    I think a lot depends on who you ask and what channels you use.

  23. fraac: JOHN - CENATION said:

    Just from my experience. Others will differ.

  24. SmitZ said:

    Hahahah Tetrix, what a moron.

  26. Crafz said:

    AC admins maybe won’t. But trail AC admins apparently will.

  27. KillAri said:

    again, how do you cheat and still be in a somewhat low div?
    also, how didn’t you catch tarkus’ alt acc yet ETF2L?

  46. Ashenfall: .gecko - IHL said:

    Tetrix – Not able to read.
    Neoxyde – Not able to tell the truth.


    Can someone tell me how to get off of the tf2lobby site? anyone?

  51. Pistolvania said:

    Tetrix doesn’t cheat as far as I know if he’s the same Tetrix as I’ve played like over 100 lobbies with?

    Anyhow, good to see imdustin banned. I played a lobby as sniper with him as the opposing sniper, and he finished a swiftwater round with 120+ points, whereas I was barely able to get 50. He seemed pretty suspicious aswell, but I was fooled by him wearing the -AA- tag.

  53. Sherb ⑨ said:

    I’m fairly certain that Tetrix’s ban was OpenPlugin related. I’ve never known him as an “actual” cheater, anyway.

  54. .kr4tos: (ETF2L Donator) - Gaston - DGB said:

    hahahaha chiakii + LG :D

  55. Gero: Ascent - [NoL] said:

    lol bans, and always a french in the bunch nice §

  56. Ashenfall: .gecko - IHL said:

    Tetrix’ ban was due to him not removing OpenPlugin (even after being told about the VAC update).

  57. Casual: prtyboiz - T⑨ said:

    OpenPlugin broke after that update. If you forgot about it, it would load in your game but refuse connection to VAC secure servers. At which point you either get the fixed version or remove -insecure. Forgotten to remove the plugin is bullshit.

  58. Xabi: Leila+8 said:

    Haha Neoxyde !

    What a retard.

  59. svins: alus - P.O.P said:

    Hahahahah I hate you clueless cheaters so much! Go practice some MGE you traitors!

  68. Shabbaman: GoT<3 - HoT<3 said:

    I triggered by the Pistolvania’s -AA-comment, but I had that dustin in my huge “div4/5/6 dubious scouts to be reported to the AC admins” administration. Now, only to ban all the others…

    @ipz No loss for the real life

    @dessi Haha, ich dachte euer Pedoverein wäre schon pensioniert aber wie es scheint übt sich Rasta hochwohlgeboren weiter hin in seinem kläglichen möchtergern Dichterimage und du bist wohl auch immer noch der Coole unter den alten knackern der dafür bekannt ist dampf zu machen. Ich wünsch euch dann noch viel Spaß in eurem Kindergarten für hängengebliebene Bauarbeiter und Hartz IV-empfänger.

    @LG Was zur hölle ist’n bei dir los? Schalt mal nen gang runter. Du warst bis vor kurzem wohl auch noch ein aktiver part der community und hast dich an allem beteiligt. Jetzt wo du Gesperrt bist den Gaul von der Leine zu lassen ist auch nicht wirklich sinn der sache. Man kann seine Sperre mit würde tragen oder sowas wie du machen. Einfach nur Kindisch.
    Zu dem Thema mit ipz sag ich nun auch nichts, wenn jemand meint ein auf 2edgy4u zu machen soll er das halt.
