Rules updates

Recent events, such as the influx of third party betting sites to the TF2 scene, has lead the necessity of an updated ETF2L rulebook. Here are the new rules, effective immediately:

– Manipulating screenshots, chatlogs or match results.
– Impersonating players, ETF2L staff or contacts of the league (with malicious intent).
– Non-permitted acquisition of profits (e.g. selling spots on your roster, monetizing ETF2L specific content without our permission etc.).

Every case will be reviewed individually and penalties may vary based off of the severity of each offense.
Any decisions made will be at the discretion of the admin team and all circumstances are going to be taken into account.

1.7 Betting & Gambling policy

ETF2L holds no responsibility for risks connected with gambling or betting on third-party services.

Naturally the usage of alternative accounts or other people as betting proxies is also forbidden, accomplices will face a penalty aswell.
