Sunday Night Bans, Staff Changes and an Update on our Demo Infraction Policy

Date May 26, 2019

Staff Changes and an open position on the Anti-Cheat team: Apply now!

We’re glad to announce that Ireland AlesKee has completed his trial and is now a part of the staff as a League Admin.

We’re also glad to announce that Germany Amaterasu has been promoted to Head Anti-Cheat admin.

Now with the good news out of the way we are sad to announce that Spain Capu is leaving our Anti-Cheat team. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

This leaves an open position for anyone interested in working for a league free from cheaters. Anti-Cheat admins ensure fair competition in the league by analyzing submitted evidence for signs of cheats and issuing bans to confirmed cheaters. Submitted evidence is rarely clear-cut – most cases are challenging and involve a fair bit of “forensic work”.

Anti-Cheat staff need to have a good sense of trust and morality, additionally be excited by detective work and technical aspects of the source engine that come with demo viewing and cheats and such. It’s also important to have no bias and be respectful of the democratic process on voting.

Please don’t be intimidated to apply, it’s a position that you can really only improve on with real experience.

For more information on how to apply, click here.
