Cheating threads and TFTV

Hi all,
There has been a recent spike in the number of threads and posts regarding cheating on the site. Discussion isn't strictly prohibited, but in most cases does go out of line with forum rules, so we feel some reminders are necessary:

- Witch hunting and harassment goes strictly against our forum rules, and will be policed, no it does not matter if they're a cheater.
- TFTV is not a place to submit evidence of cheating. Suspicions should be reported in accordance with your league's guidelines.

Places to do this:
RGL: https://rgl.gg/Players/Reporting/Cheaters.aspx
ETF2L: https://etf2l.org/support
ozf: https://ozfortress.com/forums/topics/16

- AC investigations are often lengthy, and admins must remain careful and secretive to preserve the integrity of their decisions, a lack of communication does not mean a lack of attention.

Our mod team welcomes any reports of inappropriate behavior, either in our #modhelp channel, or by PMing us on Discord or through the forum. As always, if there are questions, reach out.

Yours,
TFTV Moderation

As a personal addition:
It is worth noting that, while not bannable (here), making threads to publicly accuse someone of cheating actively hampers AC efforts by leagues.

Tipping someone off that they are suspect or being investigated only helps them get away with that if it is what you genuinely believe. Obla put this well in their "Anticheat and you" post on ozf:

What is actually happening:
1) stumble across suspect player
2) whine about it in public or in the game
3) in doing so, tip off the cheater that they've been noticed
4) cheater backs off and begins to learn how to avoid getting caught
5) you done fucked up by now

As I mentioned above, all major leagues have ways to privately files an AC report which you should be using instead of posting here.

For those who will not just go out of their way to not just tip off people they suspect, but actively harass and lead crusades against them, please, grow the fuck up. You are talking to actual people when you speak, it seems many of you forget, or just don't care.
