We would like to announce that Jonez, EASY, and Axio have successfully completed their League Admin trials. Jack has also completed his trial period as a site coder.
And finally, the Anti-Cheat team will include Jortand in our ranks as a full staff member.
PSA on Demo Requests
Recently we have received a couple of requests about players not receiving emails when demos have been requested or general admin comments were posted on a matchpage. In most of these cases it turns out that the team leaders and deputies did not enable the option “Send Email Notifications” in their profile dashboard, or their email was not current anymore. Even if you are not a leader or deputy in your current team, you should still consider leaving this feature enabled for the future. If you need to change your email address, please open a League Admin request on our Discord as you cannot change it yourself.
Furthermore, we will use this post to remind you that you are required to keep all of your demos from official matches until the wrap-up post of the season has been published!
PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THESE BANS WERE ENACTED BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THIS NEWSPOST!
The following players have been caught cheating by the Anti-Cheat team and were banned for two years unless otherwise specified:
- rikhard (Cheating after VAC League Ban; Permanent Ban)
- magg (Cheating 2nd time; Permanent Ban)
The following players have been caught with VAC bans possibly affecting TF2 and have been banned from the league for two years:
+ 58 inactive and 8 inactive permanently banned ETF2L accounts. Total: 66
As these players have not been caught cheating by our staff potential match results are not affected. Some of the VACs may have been detected on alternate Steam/ETF2L accounts.
If you were banned due to a VAC ban on your Steam account that does not affect Team Fortress 2, or would like to appeal your permanent VAC league ban, please contact our Anti-Cheat staff and clarify the situation in order to get the ETF2L ban removed.
