Recently, we’ve been making more and more use of our E-Mail system. This already includes Admin/Leader challenges and will now include any necessary moments where we need to get in contact with players (NOT just leaders). Please make sure your E-Mail address is one that you check frequently. If you want your E-Mail address changed, you can do so by contacting our Support through IRC.
We, the AC staff, have been running into a lot of cases where people were reported for reasons such as having few hours logged in TF2 and already being high division. Given that reason, we are required to immediately request the player’s demos and further investigate. Recently, however, most of these cases have been turned out to be either people evading bans or people that abandoned their older accounts for various reasons.
Players’ reasons for alt accounts have mostly been: abandoning their old account because of VAC bans (not just TF2), trade bans, bans from pubs, being banned from steamrep.com or sold Steam accounts. While your reason doesn’t interest us (except if the VAC bans were recently issued for TF2), please note that alt accounts are strictly forbidden in ETF2L.
2.6 No account sharing and multi accounts
Every player is limited to only one ETF2L account at any time. A person creating multiple accounts or multiple players using one account is not allowed. Multiple players from the same household (family, close friends, roommates, …) that may be sharing the same IP address must notify admins and use seperate ETF2L and Steam accounts.
Players caught creating multiple ETF2L accounts or allowing use of their Steam account to a third party in official matches may face punishment ranging from deactivation of the account to reversal of match results and a major warning for fraud or a league ban. Each case will be reviewed individually and penalties will be assigned based on severity of the offense and its impact on the competition. If you wish to change the attached Steam ID of your ETF2L account, contact admins and they will change it for you.
