Season 30 signups are closing on May 26th at 20.00 CEST!

Season 30: Provisional Tiers Published!

Date May 26, 2018

Down below are this season’s provisional tiers. If you can’t find your team it could be due to you recently changing your team name. As said in the announcement post, High tier will be divided into Division 1 and Division 2 once again. As you might notice the provisional tiers are out a day before the signups close, this is due to a minor mistake in the announcement post. Don’t worry too much as you can still sign your team up until May 26th 20:00 CEST! However due to the Round Robin style groups we urge teams wanting to sign up for div1/div2 to do so as soon as possible.

Unhappy about your place? Feel free to contact us over at http://etf2l.org/support/ or in our Discord Server. These tiers are still subjected to change if teams make a good case as to why they should be moved.

Monday Night bans, Staff and Rule Update

Date May 21, 2018

Bugs

Currently within TF2 there are 2 major bugs that have a chance of majorly impact matches. If you suspect that the opposing team in a match is using this bug in a match, please inform us through IRC.

The first bug is the one where stickies can damage players through walls if they’re placed inside of each other.

The second one is about the Ubercharge being built during pauses. This one can obviously happen by accident but we expect teams to handle it with fair play and make agreements if it does.

If there are cases of either of these bugs being abused, teams are going to get punished appropriately.

Bans

The following players have been caught cheating by our Anti-Cheat team. They will be banned from ETF2L for one year:

The following player has failed to upload demos 4 times, and has been banned from the league for a year:

The following player has failed to upload demos 3 times, and has been banned from the league for two months:

The following players have failed to upload demos twice, and have been banned from the league for two weeks:

The following player has been found evading their ban, and will have their ban extended by one year:

The following players have been caught with VAC bans affecting TF2, and will be banned from the league for one year:

+ 166 inactive ETF2L accounts.

As these players have not been caught cheating by our staff, their match results are not affected.

Staff Changes

We are sad to announce that our longstanding admin and friend UnitedKingdom MoistPenguin is leaving our ranks. We wish him well in all his future endeavors.

In the meantime both Belgium Sodium and England proky have completed their trials and are now full League admins.

Rule Changes

Anti-Cheat

Although not really rules, we are changing our policy in regard to how we handle bans. In the past, we have done it like we’re doing tonight with all players since the past ban post been done in one wave. In the future, this will be done differently: we will be banning people shortly after their infraction has taken place. The exception to this is VAC bans, these will still be done in waves. We will still post news posts mentioning all banned players every couple of months like we have so far.

The second policy that is changing is how we distribute ETF2L bans for VAC bans. This is due to changes in both our as well as valve’s system. We will no longer check every single player to see if the ban was specific to Team Fortress 2, but instead only check players that are active. If you’ve been hit with a VAC ban and want to make sure you are not banned on ETF2L for it then please contact our Anti-Cheat staff on IRC. If you do get an ETF2L ban due to a VAC ban this ban can still be removed once proof is provided that the ban is not related to TF2.

General

Firstly we’re making the “Perma-mercs are not allowed” rule from being a Highlander only rule to a general rule.

Season 30 sponsored by STN-Trading and scrap.tf!: Premiership Qualifiers Announcement!

Date May 20, 2018

Premiership Qualifiers

We’ve come to a decision regarding the Season 30 Premiership Qualifiers!

UnitedKingdom Se7en and Cyprus TTD have retained their Premiership spot due to keeping at least half of their roster and not ending the season in a relegation spot.

Since UnitedKingdom the bin has almost the same roster as the Division 1 winner from Season 29 they will also be given a Premiership spot, while European SVIFT, France Ascent.EU and Norway Ora Elektro have been given Premiership spots due to their results submitted to the admins. This leaves us with 2 spots left for Premiership.

We’ve decided to use a Double Bracket format with 4 teams in it, these being UnitedKingdom The Bus Crew, European Velocity eSports, Sweden Professional Disney Fangirls and Seychelles Third Eye.

The first games will be the following:

The winners will go on to play against each other in the Upper Bracket final, with the winner of that game claiming a Premiership spot for themselves. The losers will play each other in the Lower Bracket. The winner of that game will then play the loser of the Upper Bracket Final for the last Premiership spot. The teams that do not qualify for Premiership will be given a spot in Division 1.

The playoffs will take place from Sunday 20th until Sunday 27th May. If your team is running into any scheduling issues then let the admin team know as soon as possible so we can look to help.
